baby leah.

2 Oct
Russell’s best friend, Matt and his wife had their baby girl, Leah on Friday night. 
(it’s pronounced Leia, like Princess Leia–just for all of you who are like me and think it’s like Lee-a)
I don’t want to get into any detail about their story, because it is not my story to tell. But I will say Victoria (and Matt, too) were put through hell and back. And what should have been a happy, joyous occasion for their family, quickly turned into a very scary one. Victoria has proven to be one of the strongest and bad-ass women I have ever met. And I am so happy that everything turned out for the better, and they will be safe at home very soon. We love the Harris family so very much. 
I can’t wait to see our girls grow up together and become best friends like their daddy’s are.

Merrick (Not sure if that’s how to spell his name, I’ll get confirmation on this, he is Victoria’s sister’s little beef cake son-so cute!), my darling Lux, and little baby Leah. Clearly, they’re all bffs. 

37 Weeks and the Fourth of July

7 Jul

Well, it’s official. I have made it to full term. I can safely go into labor at any moment! I turned 37 weeks on the Fourth. Russell and I had no real plans that day but it turned out to be a nice day.
We walked to our regular coffee shop where I ordered my favorite green tea tropical. We then walked home and went to Target to return/exchange some home storage stuff. His best friend and wife, who are also expecting a baby girl in October, phoned us and we met up for some early dinner. Except Russell and I didn’t eat much because we were invited to my parents for a BBQ. It was just nice to visit with them and talk about getting ready for the babies and such. They just got a new place and are settling it. We scurried to my parents for some BBQ steak and baked potatoes!

I got to say, steak, baked potatoes, and greens of some sort are one of my favorite meals. Don’t tell my mom and step dad this, but it reminds me of my dad’s home cooked meals. The man runs king of the BBQ and other BbQ never tastes quite the same! It was still nice to visit all the same and any meal that’s cooked for me I’m always grateful for! I then convinced Russell to take my parents dog, Hannah, for a walk. Hannah loves Russell. We like to joke and say Russell is her boyfriend. He’s pretty much the only one who takes her on walks so she loves him dearly for the attention!

Overall, it was a relaxing, uneventful Fourth.

It is my grandparents 59th Wedding Anniversary. Crazy! 59 years with the same person! God help them! 😉
