Baby Z Is on the Way!

Carrie woke me up at 5:45 this morning and told me that she was having regular contractions at about six minutes apart.  So we packed up and headed to the hospital, which is where I’m blogging from. I was supposed to lead the music today at church, but apparently God had other plans.  Our offertory … [Read more…]






38 Weeks

Technically 38 weeks and a 1 day.  But who’s counting?  Ben and I went to a lawyer dinner function tonight and I wore the only fancy maternity item I own (and it’s not even mine).  Good thing we don’t go to a lot of these functions or I would be referred to as “that pregnant … [Read more…]

Best Onesie Ever

An unexpected package came in the mail yesterday.  It was flat and soft and sent from Babies R Us.  What could it be?  Upon opening the mysterious package I discovered this! You know you have a serious loyalty to (some might say obsession with) your school when you decide to dress your unborn children in … [Read more…]
