Awkward and Awesome Thursday

I know it's been a long time since I blogged, but I have a very good excuse (see Awesomes)!


Being cut off on the highway by a truck that, according to the back door, was carrying Inmates.

Breaking out in hives

Sweater onesies. Hello 80s!


Cassie: "I feel like a cow."
Andrew: "Technically, you feel like a heifer since you haven't had Zoe yet."
Cassie: "Well regardless, you're fixing to be a steer."
I love that even at 9 months pregnant, she's still quick witted! haha

Which brings me to my next point...
my BEAUTIFUL niece, Zoe Christine, was born last Friday. After 19 hours in labor and Zoe blatantly refusing to turn for the doctors, they decided to do a C-section. Although it seemed like it took forever, it was a pretty quick procedure and mommy and baby (and Andrew) did great. She was born on 12/7/12 at 7:42 p.m., weighing in at 7lbs 7oz and 20 1/2 inches long. 
Ironic considering Andrew's lucky number has always been 7.

I was clearly exhausted from the wait, but was SO excited to finally hold this little bundle of joy in my arms.

Andrew sent me this picture with the subtitle: "First hairbow of many." We trained him well!

Gosh, I could stare at her all day...

  2. baby girl is ADORABLE!!! and where can I get that onsie?!! ;)

  3. Aw, congrats! I may need to borrow Andrew to teach my husband that hairbows are OK.
