Isabella in her gift from Jen!

Three years ago when I first started trying to have a baby, I turned to I-Village and the "Trying To Conceive" board for support. There I met a great group of ladies, most of whom I am still friends with to this day. One of those ladies just happened to live in the neighborhood across the street from me! Yes! I can walk to her house! Crazy, small world isn't it!? She brought by a gift recently for Isabella & I finally took some pictures today of Isabella in is so cute!
Thank you Jen!!!

Lately I have had the urge to re-do stuff in my spare time...LOL...which I don't have much of! However, over the past week and a half I did manage to re-paint the guest is a very neutral "Metro Mauve" color. It looks good. I am almost done. Next I am setting my sights on Peyton's room. Out with the Thomas and the trains etc. I have listed a bunch of his stuff (comforters, curtains etc) on Craigslist & plan to re-do his room. Not exactly sure how yet....but I have a few ideas! I think this is all coming from watching so much HGTV during my maternity leave! LOL! I am excited to get started on his room! Hubby wants us to sell his bunk bed and get him just a single bed...not sure about that yet, but we'll see!

What a difference a year can make!

As I sit here with my almost 7 week old baby girl asleep (well, half asleep) on my chest, typing this with one hand, I am amazed how far we have come in 1 year! I just finished reading my blog posts from last July, August and Sept, we were prepping for and then starting IVF...what an amazing and exciting time! I still sometimes cannot believe it worked!

Slept through the night!

Ok, so maybe it was a total fluke, but last night Isabella slept through the night! I know, right!??? Crazy! She went to sleep at about 12:30am and slept til 6:45am! I actually woke up first!!!! I just know it won't happen again tonight, but maybe I will get lucky....
To celebrate the day, I took a few pictures tonight. Well, we tried! Isabella wasn't feeling it...

July 4th weekend

oh, and yes, I had a moment of insanity and got my hair cut short...and went to "Great Clips" to make matters worse. She butchered my hair. I am in deep depression.
