We are still alive!

Yes we have survived the first 2 weeks with Reagan.  As you are all aware time to blog, check email, facebook and even pee sometimes is few and far between.  i just want to let everybody know we are doing fine.  Just a little sleep deprived.  My mom has been here this past week and it has really helped me so much.  I couldn't ask for a better mom or family for that matter.  Thank you Momma for being here to help!  It really means so much!

We had our 2 week check up on Thursday with Dr Blair.  Reagan now weighs 8 whole pounds!  She is still at 20 3/4" long but Dr Blair said that was in the 75% for her age.  I was surprised to hear that because Zac and I are not the tallest people so we assume she will be short.  So for now we can feel like she is tall even for a little while.  According to Dr Blair her head size is in the 75% too.  I could have probably told him that!  Ha!  She will grow into it.  As for sleeping, some nights are better than others.  Last night she went almost 4 hours with out wanting to eat.  We couldn't believe it.  She only got up once but she didn't officially go to bed until around 12:30 so I'm not sure if that counts.  Hopefully though, this trend will continue.  I hope, I hope, I hope!  Both our parents said we were sleeping through the night at 6 weeks.  How good do you think our chances are with Reagan?  I'm not going to hold my breathe but hey a girl can dream right.  I'll leave you with a few pictures of our sweet angel.  Most of you have probably seen them on facebook but they are worth sharing again.

Pool Time Fun!

Hopefully Carter is warming up to the pool.  He had a blast with Granddaddy and Duck Duck this weekend.

Will It Ever Happen?

Saw this on today.  The article itself is about a new iPhone Apple is going to debut but this is really the only thing I comprehended from the whole thing.

In the United States, Wall Street and consumers alike are eagerly anticipating an iPhone on the network of Verizon Wireless, the No. 1 telecoms provider.
But that announcement is not expected to come Monday. Most analysts expect to see a Verizon iPhone some time next year, or perhaps as early as this fall.

Not sure if I am excited to here more news about the iPhone coming to Verizon or not.  I'm starting to have mixed feelings about it.  Everybody is now talking about the HTC phones.  I've heard a lot of people say the new HTC Incredible is awesome but how am I supposed to know.  You never know how well a phone works until you used it.  I've also heard the Droid phones out rank the iPhone tremendously but again how do I know for sure Anybody have an opinion?  I may just hold out for the iPhone to come to Verizon.  Crap, I've waited this long what's another year.

I'm sorry that isn't on sale.

This is a funny story I just had to share.  Last Saturday I had some errands to do.  You know, last minute things that I have put off because I had more pressing things to do first.  So, me, my mom, Chelsea, and Carter take off to Hancock to get fabric to make drapes for Reagan's room.  Then we head over to Hobby Lobby.  I have been looking for a pretty light fixture to put in Reagan's room and I just haven't found any that I liked a whole lot.  I didn't want anything too girly but not something too modern either.  Plus the fact that I was trying not to spend over $150 bucks on one.  So a co-worker of mine told me they had some cute chandeliers with pink shades at Hobby Lobby in Hoover.  

I am really gong to need you to visualize the rest of the story.  If you know me well you know how I tell stories so please picture me telling you in person.  And also think about the Hobby Lobby workers with their blue aprons with the orange piping.  Trust me it will help make it a lot funnier.

We get there and can't find them.  Right as we are about to leave I walked through the lamp section one more time and there they were.  They were in a box on the very bottom shelf.  So I snatch it up and we head to the cash register.  As I put the box, containing the chandelier that I have looked so long for, the nice check out lady says "Oh, our lamps aren't on sale this week"............. Umm Excuse me?  So does that mean I can't buy it at full price?  I really tried to not give her a stupid face but I don't think I succeeded.  I'm not very good at a "poker face".  Its really hard for me to not show what I'm thinking sometimes.  (And yes, I hope you sing Lady Gaga ALL day now!)  Finally, after what felt like a 10 min stupid face starring competition, I got out "Ok" in a still confused voice.  And she says "Oh ok"  Like she expected me to put it back or something.  Maybe she is an avid coupon cutter and never pays full price for anything.  No offense to those people but what else was I supposed to do.  They only had 2 left and I didn't have time to wait on the next sale.  Which knowing Hobby Lobby was probably this week.  I felt like saying "I want to pay the full $119.00 please.  Don't force me not to!"    So as we get past the door walking out, we all bust into hysterical laughter.  I said "I really tried to not give her a stupid face when she said that"  Chelsea says "Well you did and it was hilarious!"  My mom said "Did she expect you not to buy it?"  Ha!  We have laughed about it since then and I have told the story to everybody.  I hope you think it is as funny as we did.  Happy Friday!

Well my doc appointment this week went fine.  I have made some progress but not enough if you ask me.  Dr Heidi said if Reagan didn't grace us with her presence  before June 17th she would induce me because she is going out of town that weekend.  I was glad to hear that but that still takes me past my due date.  Maybe I'll have her before then.  I know most people are late with their first but I hope I'm not.  Even if I am I will at least be off work.  I still have some vacation time left so I am officially going on maternity leave on June 14th.  Well that is the day it will start anyway (if not before).  My last day is the 11th until after Labor Day!  Yea!  My next appointment is on the 9th.  Maybe I will have progressed a lot and they will want to just keep me.  Wishful thinking I guess.  I won't hold my breathe so you don't either.
