I need to apologize

So I need to apologize. First to my wonderful daughter Halle, whom I love more than I can say, and second to all of you who I tried to scare away from having babies. I shouldn't have talked to anyone before I was out of the "I'm crazy" stage. I think I made having a baby sound like the worst thing in the world, which I have come to realize couldn't be further from the truth.

Although it is the hardest thing I have ever done, it is also the most wonderful thing, besides my husband, that I have ever experienced. I just needed someone to tell me that after the first 2-3 weeks, you will feel more normal and you will figure things out, and understand your baby better. I also needed to realize that my life would never be the same, and that is ok. It took me a while to stop being selfish and realize that I love my baby and she loves me, and needs me.

Being a mom is truly wonderful and I can't get enough of my Halle! She has been smiling and cooing so much lately, it is so fun.

So sorry Halle for making you sound so bad, and sorry everyone for scaring you.

A little hint

Hi girls, this is Russ.

I asked Lacey if I could make a quick blog post when I noticed she had a link on her blog that said "Mod Mum Baby Slings." You know, Allison's baby sling business?

I work in marketing, and the Internet is one place I focus, so I thought I would show you all how you can help Allison's business online by using your blogs. If you link to her site from your blog, you should also use the word "Baby Sling" at the end of ModMum when you make a link. Like this ModMum Baby Slings. It's one tiny trick of hundreds, but this will help increase the chances of her site ranking better in the search engines when expecting moms start researching baby slings.

Link away.



So my sisters and I have decided to get together once a month, or at least as often as we can and do a little project and a meal. Our first little get together we went to Color Me Mine, we actually did it the day before I started contractions. Anyway, this month we made these frames, it was is always fun to be with the sister's and being crafty.


Halloween & Birthday

Thanks Russ. He took me to The Roof for dinner. My mom watched Halle. It was the first time Russ and I had been alone together since Halle was born. We actually both missed Halle more than we thought, and were only out for a couple hours. It was nice to be alone though.

I know it is a little late for halloween, but time is really going by fast! We had a fun night with our friends the Larkins and their family. We ate soup and went trick-or-treating with their daughter Claire. Halle slept through most of it, but she was a good girl.



So I have been so excited to see the pictures that we had done with Skye Johansen. I check her blog all the time, and finally today they were there! They are so cute, if I do say so myself, and I can't wait to see the rest of them! To see more go to Skye's blog, the link is on my blog in "The Site's" section.
