My sweet sweet nephew AJ Michael H***** was born on May 27th 2009 at 4:17 am to my baby sister Jessica. She was in labor for around 15 hours. They induced her the afternoon before because the baby was so large. He was born 8lbs 9ounces with a full head of hair.
I spent most of yesterday at the hospital yesterday snuggling him, helping Jess out and hanging out with my family. My dad was there all night long and was able to stand outside and listen to everything that was going on. It makes me wish I would have driven up there at 11pm the night before when I got the call. I didnt because the hospital she delivered at was over an hour drive and I wasnt exactly sure how to get there. I didnt think it was smart for my tired pregnant butt to make that drive so I waited til the next morning. It was good I waited. I was actually awake and able to converse and function while I was there.
Im hoping to go over next week sometime and take her dinner and snuggle him some more.

The Star Trek movie is AWESOME! I mean seriously!
My husband is a huge Star Trek fan.... as in he's watched every different series....even the stupid ones. (thankfully most of them on SCI FI while Im at work or in my scrap room hiding as I only tolerate the campy original or TNG) I knew I was going to have to go to this movie... and since the previews look kinda cool I really was eager to go. I in no way thought it was going to be a cool as it was. Awesome action, awesome suspense, awesome acting.... not to mention the eye candy (hello Chris Pine).
Of course the first 15 minutes made my pregnant self cry in my popcorn, but it was still awesome.
5 MILLION times better than Wolverine (even with the nekked Hugh Jackman)! Check it out

Wheeeee! I cant believe its May already. I cant believe Im almost halfway thru the pregnancy. Time is going so so fast. Im currently a wee bit over 19 weeks.
My baby sister Jessica is also pregnant. This past Sunday my sil in law Mindy and I threw her a little baby shower. I took this picture of Mindy and Jess bellying up to the buffet line. We made her all the food she wanted. Mindy made a lasagna and I made her a mini salad bar. I even made a cheesecake from scratch for her (finally used the springform pan I have had for 3 years and never used)
She is so big right now. She is due June 2nd. I think its so exciting that our babies will be so close in age. Less than 6 months apart. She is having a boy and naming him AJ. She and her boyfriend are moving into their own place this weekend. I pray everything works out for them. She is so young... just turned 18. I just hope she finishes high school. (She has only 1 year left) I know she will be a good Mommy... but watching her try so hard makes me feel grateful that I waited to get pregnant til I was 30.
In other news... I actually scrapped! I mean seriously scrapped several times this week. Maybe my mojo is coming back. I made this cute little tag instead of a card to hang on Jessica's baby gift. It was fun digging thru my bag of scraps. It really makes me want to make more tags. I have been planning on making some to sell on etsy (to make some baby money I so desperately need)... I just never seem to get around to it. I think Im going to make this one my desktop in the hopes of inspiring me to do SOMETHING.
I also managed to do May #2 for category stories. The theme is "What's Cookin?" Check out the site to see what our storytellers cooked up this time. The prize is lots of HAMBLY!! Sweet, transparent vanilla scented HAMBLY! yum!
To win all you have to do is submit your NEW layout based (however loosely) on our current category. I chose to do mine on my adorable nephew Tyler (if you even knew the orneriness behind that sweet smile) who just loves to help my mom bake.
I also got my next guttergirlz layout done... but I cant show it to you. Its a secret until May 30th.... but I can tell you I really LOVE the song and my layout is really PINK!!
Have you ever played in the gutter with us?? If not you should. Its quite theraputic and very fun. If you already like to get dirty... maybe you should check THIS out!
