Winter Wonderland

We woke up to this:
So then we made this:
And then the entire city of Portland shut down. Unfortunatley Justin had to fly down to CA bright and early this morning for work, or else he would have enjoyed the state-wide snow day as well. I really love that this happens only once a year, but its kinda sad when 1 inch of snow cancels school, work, bus schedules, ect. and then melts away by 10am.
happy thursday!

14 February 2011

the DUE date

Today was supposed to be the big day. I have had a big star on it in my calendar all year. It has been used for the last nine months as a marker of sorts, my personal countdown. And had everything gone according to plan... if there is such a thing... today would have had so much more meaning than flowers and chocolate hearts. Today would have been the beginning of our new little family. He was supposed to be our little love boy. But today is still a big day and I have still been looking forward to it. Today now marks "normal" for Beckham.

So, as of today, he is 7lb. 15oz. As of today I can start looking forward to the big milestones (like sleeping longer than 3 hours). He finally began nursing well. And his awake/sleep pattern is beginning to find a normal rythm. And I am thrilled. He is doing great and we are all happy that he has been part of our family for the past 2 months.

So Happy Valentines day. We aren't big into this holiday, but it has been great. Justin let me sleep in till 9, Rhys has been cranky because of more ear infections, Beckham is a dream baby, and I am thrilled because I got this bike trainer. Its been a great day.

Happy Birthday Hubby

Justin celebrated his 31st Birthday on Sunday so we headed out to the coast for the afternoon. We decided to try out a new spot, Pacific City. The whole drive out though we both kept thinking we need to live a bit closer to the beach because 2 hours each way doesnt lend itself to a quick trip on a sunny day.

The weather turned out to be warmer and sunnier than at home, so we are glad we went. Rhys was having so much fun running every where. He had a blast.
