He's Happy, I'm Happy

I can't believe Henson's already 2 weeks old! He is such a good baby - eats well, sleeps well, happy inbetween. I couldn't have asked for better. The phrase you always hear are true: "it will change your life", or "your world is about to change", or "they are so cute, just wait until he's 22" (I don't have a clue what that last one means, but some lady at Target said that to me this weekend.)

Sanity Savers (a.k.a. angels)

Thank you, thank you, thank you!! If it weren't for these three amazing people - my mother, Lucas' mother, and my sister-in-law - I know for a fact that I wouldn't be doing near as well with this new mom thing. Last night was the first night Lucas and I have spent completely by ourselves at home (overnight - my mom was here until 9pm. ha.). They have taken turns staying with me overnight to help with Henson so I could rest after having an unplanned C-section.
I went to the Dr. today and she was very impressed with how well I was doing before even my 2 week mark. I am attributing this well-being to these women: THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3 Years Already!?!

First, before you judge me for posting about something other than our new baby, I scheduled this post Friday before he was here so that I wouldn't forget (plus I didn't want Lucas to get the shaft already).

Lucas and I have been married 3 years today! I can't believe it has already been that long! It's been so much fun thus far, and adding another person to the fam makes the perfect anniversary gift!

Lucas and I will have known each other for 10 years this year. We met at Freshman Orientation before we started at OC. My best friend thought she was going to marry him. Haha, I showed her! However, it took until our senior year for us to start dating.
Now, for the flashback:

Murder Mystery birthday party - Freshman year

Summer before our senior year sometime.

Starting the summer after our Sophmore year we started traveling together with Lighten Up - a musical/comedy recruiting group for OC.

Vegas - Summer '02

D.C. - Summer '02

Spring Sing 2003

Some banquet sometime
My 24th birthday - 2005

I Made It!

The result of coordinating from 10:30am - 8:00pm 9 months preggo.

I did it. I actually made it through coordinating an all-day wedding 9 months pregnant. I am totally going to brag about that one.

Free No More

Well, that will be true in three days. If you have been keeping track to the right of how many days 'til baby (and I know you guys check that multiple times a day. yes, a day.) then you will see that there are only 3 days left. THREE! Oh. my. word.
My doc told me yesterday that we are going to induce on Monday morning. Ahh!! I'm so excited, nervous, excited some more, anxious...I'm going to go throw up.

Okay, I'm good for now. I actually have a wedding to coordinate this weekend. Don't judge. It has been booked for over a year. They have been so sweet and understanding, though, so I really wanted to be there for them. I do have help, however.

Anyway, so last night Lucas and I went on our last date pre-parenthood. We went to Charleston's then rented a movie - watched while drinking Icees and eating chocolate. Perfection.
I purposely did not crop out my food in this pic because it was a-mazing!
