It's a Twinderful Life

Looking For the Silver Lining in All of Life's Clouds


Happy Tuesday all! I apologize for the lack of posts last week…I was off witnessing one of the most┬ábeautiful things I’ve ever seen! The birth of this little gem:


Scarlett Justyne Barney

Born on 3/3/13 at 12:24 PM

8 lbs. 2 oz. and 21 inches long


Bre and Scarlett are doing great. And isn’t this picture one of the most beautiful you’ve ever seen?! (minus the heavily pixilated picture)

Here’s Scarlett on her way home from the hospital yesterday.

She is the most precious thing and I feel lucky to be her Aunt. I’ll let Bre log on and share the birth story when she has a minute (it’s a good one). Until then, I’ll just be squeezing my new little niece so tight and thanking the heavens that she’s here, safe and sound.

Have a great week!

16 Weeks: Girl or Boy?

Today marks 16 weeks of pregnancy bliss (okay, that’s a lie, I’ve only FELT blissfull for the past 2 weeks and I don’t even want to TALK about anything before then… I still can’t look at Ginger Ale without dry heaving ((shudder). Little baby is officially making his/her entrance in the lower half of my belly and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve even started to feel a few flutters which puts me over-the-moon. I am in love with this baby so much already. Miah and I both think that it’s a girl and Britt has already named her Scarlett. With any luck we’ll find out tomorrow what kind of junk this baby sporting. My gender ultrasound isn’t schedule for another 4 weeks, but, lucky me, I have a girlfriend that’s a doc and we’re going to hit up the ultrasound machine in her office tomorrow after hours. Even if baby is bashful and we can’t find her stuff (or lack thereof) I am looking forward to seeing a baby instead of a┬áblob (my last ultrasound was at 9 weeks and all we could see was a blob with a heartbeat). I’ll keep you all posted with what we find out.
