Well, friends, here goes nothing!

There's a craze hitting the blog world right create an accent vlog.  I don't really think people from Arizona have an accent, but I do say some of the words differently from those I've seen, so maybe that means I do have an accent of sorts.  The instructions are posted below so you know what I'm talking about.

The instructions are to say these words: 
Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught 

And answer these questions: 
What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house? 
What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball? 
What is the bubbly carbonated drink called? 
What do you call gym shoes? 
What do you say to address a group of people? 
What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs? 
What do you call your grandparents? 
What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket? 
What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining? 
What is the thing you use to change the TV channel?

There you have it!  Hope you all join in, too!

Welcome to Motherhood

If you had asked me, I would’ve bet that I was going to have a small-ish baby (6 lbs or so), born a few weeks early (in April) and that I was going to have an easy delivery (after all, my mom had natural births with my brother and me). 

I was wrong on all counts. 

Viviana June came into the world on May 11, 2011 after a scheduled induction weighing 7 lbs 12 oz. My delivery was not easy, but thank God it was fast. 

Now I know what you’re thinking…7 lbs 12 oz isn’t huge and this is a true statement. But at barely 5’3” with a small torso, I just didn’t think I could grow an almost 8 lb baby. I was clearly in denial, look how big my belly was just days before delivery. What did I think was in there?!

I’d like to promise that I’ll be back with all the details of what we’ve been up to the past 4 months since last I stopped by this ol’ blog here, but I think I know better than that. So I’ll only promise that I’ll do my best. The past months have been the biggest whirlwind of love, tears, stress, family, happiness, and joy that I’ve ever experienced. 

Welcome to motherhood.
