babies everywhere!

it sure has been a long time since my last post. with horchie busy meeting his deadlines it seemed like he was tethered to the computer but now since he's on paper boards now the computer has been freed up and now it's just finding the time to post. i thought i'd be posting every couple of days but the reality of it is, babies are a lot of work. there's lots to catch up on but first let's tackle all the baby announcements.
finally! i think all the november babies have finally popped. the first to come out of the flood gates was little fraser wallace. and boy, did this little guy come out in a hurry considering he was one whole week late! by then linds was super ripe and ready and luckily she didn't have to wait until the entire 10 days. i've forgotten how delicate and light newborns are. with all the talk of big heads, i was prepared for little fraser to be conrad-sized but luckily for linds he was 8lbs, 2oz. conrad's just about 14lbs now but little fraser seems just that, little, by comparison. he's so sweet. you guys have done good, congratulations!! happy 2 week birthday, fraser, and welcome to this world.

and my, oh, my. just as shuh and i were enjoying our tea and cookies at the ballet, amy called with the exciting news that ginny and jason had a precious little baby boy! i was POSITIVE that ginny was going to have a little girl! i thought ginny and i looked the complete opposite while we were preggers so this is why i was convinced that a little girl was on the way for them, so convinced that i wagered a friendly bet with nancy. now i owe her lunch. hmph. nonetheless, i am excited for you guys! i didn't think babies could come smaller than conrad did. jaden (another boy!) weighed in at 6lbs, 6oz. he was so tiny and so much hair! can't tell who he looks like, though i think more like jason than ginny for now. congratulations!! you guys done good too (and look good too)! and little jaden is even waving for the camera. what a ham!

it's so amazing how fast conrad has grown in a mere 3 month period. (by the way, he celebrated his 3 month birthday on tuesday!) everything about him just seems so non-newborn. i'm straining to remember if he had little newborn cries like fraser and jaden. hearing those cries just melt my heart. conrad was so wrinkly when he was first born. those wrinkles under his eyes and forehead especially made him look like a little old man, now he's a plump little monster. no more elephant knees, sigh...but enough about conrad (for now) and on with new babies!

and the only girl in the pack, addison rae. she was 6lbs, 15oz and with parents like todd and ashley, of course she is cutie.

my dear friend jamie and his wife also added another little boy to the boy explosion, kaian. not too many details but they are on the way! don't blink. not even once or else those precious little babes will be 3 months before you know. congratulations to all the new parents!

here's a couple of conrad but that's all for now cause if i don't publish is post now it'll be another month before i do...catch-up will just have to wait!

conrad's newest fascination is with his fist as seen here. thank goodness for cheap entertainment.

all hallow's eve

the days leading up to halloween felt more like christmas and i was one of santa's little elves madly sewing the little monster's halloween costume. i couldn't let halloween go by without dressing him up! so what did we dress him up as? take a peek below:

all i could talk about while being pregnant was hotdogs so of course conrad was going to be a hotdog! and what a cute little hotdog he was! we went to the parent tot drop in session and almost all the other babies were dressed up too but to our dismay there were 2 other hotdogs there already! it was like going to the prom in your best ballgown only to find that there are 2 other girls with the same ballgown. there were pumpkins, turtles bugs and bears. conrad wasn't a very happy wiener during this photo op, he cried the whole way through. oh, conrad!

we helped dave and linds hand out candy to the kiddies as we feasted on chili. it was delish. linds is getting close now and her belly is big. we can't wait to meet you little waltsie, everybody's anxiously waiting your arrival!

conrad also got to meet our transplanted west coast fashionista, anita! even though her nieces and nephew are all grown up she's still got that baby charm or dare i say conrad's got the lady charm.

it's a short entry this time, sorry folks, that's all for now. signing off with a photo of conrad hog #1 and another of conrad because he is just so darn cute.
