Are There Two Babies?

Howdy!

Well… I’ve got one heck of a surprise for you today!

You’re all probably thinking by the title of this blog post that I am going to be an aunt of two little babies, but as far as I know, there isn’t a second baby in there, but I do have some interesting news to share with you.

My cousin Kristi is expecting baby number two!

Right now, she’s ten weeks into her pregnancy! And I guess we’re calling this one “peanut” again, since we already have a “nugget” I don’t know why everybody is choosing to give their fetuses foodie nicknames at the moment but I’m not arguing! Especially with two very pregnant women! Anyways, it came as a shock to everyone; maybe even to Kristi the most who we all definitely heard back in November say that she wasn’t going to have another one for “a long time.” And then this was announced on Facebook!

Speaking of Facebook! Another reason why I wanted to do this post is because originally I was going to talk about the gender reveal party for Blondie and Brandon, but since we had that big snow storm last month, they’ve been a little worried that we’d get a second or third storm in the meantime and nobody would be able to come down or get stuck here, so they ended up cancelling it and decided on announcing the sex of the baby on Facebook. My mom got the idea of putting all of their animals in their bathroom and wrapping the string of the right color balloon on their collars and after the door opens, they run out of there and it reveals the gender! The video itself was a bit chaotic because both Chipper and Gru ran out of there so quickly that you couldn’t really see the balloons at first and then Otis, Samuel and Toni had different colored balloons, so although it was a cute announcement, it had its moments of confusion as well! It was a nice and belated Valentine’s Day gift.

Unfortunately I’m unable to share the video on here! So this is all you’re getting for a while!

IT’S A BOY!

Considering I was thinking it would be a girl, I was a bit stunned on the fact I was very wrong! Nolan Wayne is going to be his name. They’ve changed it a lot. So I’ve been debating whether or not I wanted to share it on here in case they decide to do it again.

Now we can start buying things that are not white or gray for the little nugget! Trust me, it’s a little harder to find neutral stuff at Walmart or Dollar General. At least for me it is! I am happy that his life will be fill of Legos, trains, cars, sports, muddy clothes, and of course superheros! I’m going to invest on a pair of Avengers sneakers and a Butler University onesie for him! Oh, I’m going to have so much fun spoiling this little guy!

 

I wanted to share some of Blondie’s baby bump pictures on here! The first two I had to edit myself because she didn’t put how many weeks she was on the actual pictures like she’s been doing lately! She’s also not constantly putting them up either. Kristi wasn’t that way either when she was pregnant with Joseph, so I don’t think she’ll do it with the new baby, but since Joe is away she might consider it down the line. If she’s comfortable with sharing any of them on here especially whenever I do a baby shower (that is if she has one!) post for her!

I just thought I’d share some of the exciting news with you all! And considering it’s a Monday and everything, you might need that little bit of happy news! Hope everybody has a wonderful day!

Can you guess what little nugget’s name going to be? Or do you have any name suggestions that go great with big brother Joseph?

Meet Joseph David

Howdy!

Today I get to tell you the good news! I have a new baby cousin! I know there’s a correct term for this lineup but that gets really confusing, so he’s just a “baby cousin” to me!

When I put up the last post, I mentioned at the end that I wouldn’t include any pictures of his face on my blog in fear somebody would take them and use them for their own. I knew I needed a banner so I did use a couple of photos my aunt Katt had put up the night he was born on Facebook, but I slipped a blue ribbon in the middle of where his face meets up in the middle of the collage to kind of disguise him a little bit, you can still see him but not in a way that somebody would think to steal the picture in general, unless they’re dumb, which some are unfortunately!

Kristi’s due date was January 6th, but as the date kept getting closer and closer she wasn’t feeling like he was going to make his appearance on Friday. She even posted on Facebook that if he wasn’t here by that day then she was going to be induced on Tuesday and hopefully be born on later that day or early Wednesday. We kept teasing her saying, he likes his home and when he wants to he’ll come out. Well, her water broke around 2:30am Friday, she went to the hospital and waited, I’ve had to go back through my Aunt Katt’s statuses and she apparently had pitocin twice to try to force him out but they ultimately had to do a C-section.

It was roughly like 7:30pm when we got the news about the C-section. The little tyke just didn’t want to come out, which when he was born we quickly found out why. Little Joseph David was born at 10 lbs 3 oz and was 22 1/2 inches long! We were all thinking he’d be around 7 lbs or at least under 8 lbs and then we hear this and it just kind of surprised us! Another thing that my nana (and everybody else) wondering about it too if JD would be born with red hair or not. Kristi’s boyfriend Joe is a true ginger and so we’ve all be secretly wondering and Kristi sent a picture of the back of his head to nana the morning after and you can slightly see the tint of red in the back.

So I figured I should explain his name a little bit. As far as I know, he isn’t considered a “Jr” despite sharing both of his daddy’s first and middle names. However, my papaw and uncle (Kristi’s father) share the same first name, they have different middle names. I don’t see it being an issue as calling him “Jr” if his middle name is changed, because last name is the still the same.

I’m sorry I’m not able to share anything else at the moment. I’m hoping Kristi and Joe make a trip down sometime we can meet the little guy and nana can hold him too! Unfortunately, I can’t hold him which sucks but I don’t think my arms can fold into him like everybody else.

If you would like to read my previous baby posts, here they are!

Baby Shower!

Howdy!

So, we’re getting down to the wire now! Well sort of, Kristi still has a couple more months to go, but usually after you get the baby shower out of the way things seem to go a little faster in the pregnancy! I like how I say that and yet I have never been pregnant or anything, so I might need to shut up or I’ll have my cousin coming after me!

In the previous post I had mentioned that my family (mom, sister, nana and myself) wouldn’t be able to go up north to the baby shower for multiple reasons. My mom had to work and my sister had made plans to go to Ohio with Brandon’s family that weekend (we had to dogsit Chipper that Saturday and we’re never doing that again!) but like I told Kristi, we were definitely there in spirit! I definitely enjoyed seeing all of the pictures that our family had uploaded during the party though!

It was hosted at Kristi’s apartment at the last minute and it was covered with blue, of course! It looked so cute with the strimmers and balloons all around, I bet her cats didn’t know what to think about them, plus all of the strangers around too! Even though, my Aunt Laurie did capture a picture of one kitten he’s name is “John Wayne” snuggled on an arm rest of a chair!

Now if you remember in the last post, I sort of made a statement saying if I had permission that I would reveal the little dude’s name. Well… I have permission but I have decided to keep it a secret a little while longer, next time I will write about JD will be when he is born, so that’ll be when I reveal his name! I have decided that I will not show his face because I don’t think you need to see his face! I also don’t want somebody to steal the pictures and use it as their own!

I’m A Picnik Whore.

The other day I realized that I had forgotten a picture from my first Facebook account. So I opened up that Facebook grabbed that picture and a few others that I thought I needed to keep. I grabbed a few of my pictures of myself and then went on my “Picnik” album and saved a lot from that album. Afterwards I deleted my first account for good. I had it up all morning, I bet I freaked a bunch of people out that have both my old and new on their friends list, but don’t have it anymore.

Anyways, I uploaded the pictures. Deleted a lot of them because I don’t like keeping them on my laptop. It gets somewhat crowded if I keep a lot of them. I started thinking, I can actually redo a lot of my pictures that my family members have up on their profiles. My cousin Kristi and sister Emily like to take pictures of themselves, and if they’re not already in black and white it’s actually fun to edit their pictures. This is my cousin Kristi’s picture. This was a hard picture to edit, not as hard as her black and white, but this was close.

If you asked how I got this the way it is I wouldn’t be able to tell you. I saved about five pictures (or more) of hers and I don’t remember Emily’s. Since they both upload pictures a lot faster than everybody elses and have better quality of pictures its very easy to edit them and add lettering and stickers. However, explaining to a 76 year old is not all that fun. I will say that. I think I’m bad teacher or she has no patientence whatsoever. One of those though.
