Photo Blogging

Forgive me for light blogging, but Blogger has been giving me fits with lost posts and not being able to upload photos. And at almost 11 weeks pregnant, I have no patience for webpage errors! (Unsatiable cravings for Minute Maid Light Raspberry Passion fruit juice and Chinese food yes, technology that doesn't work, no.)

Itty's 10-week ultrasound. He/She is facing the camera, head on the left, with both hands and feet visible. Unlike Bitty, who was a little jumping bean at his first photo-op, Itty slept through most of the ultrasound. But the heartbeat was strong and everything looked normal.

I love this picture from Bitty's first soccer practice. (Yes, I'm officially now a minivan-driving 'Soccer Mom'.) I was so impressed with how well eight 3-year-olds followed directions and completed all the drills. Bitty's favorite part is wearing his new soccer cleats and shin guards:

Blog Title Change

Bittyman's sidekick, "Itty", will arrive via scheduled repeat c-section in mid-April, 2007.

Although we did not find out Bitty's sex before he was born, we are going to find out Itty's sex for space planning reasons. For the record, both Mama and Daddy feel that Itty is a girl. Bitty thinks Itty is a boy. We will let everyone know what the sex is -- hopefully at the end of November.

Hell Is...

turning on the TV to watch NFL Opening Kickoff Sunday, and discovering the picture tube on your 9 year old television has blown.

Daddy was all but out the door, Costco AMEX in hand, ready to buy a new flat-screen replacement.

Mama, in her fiscal conservativeness, quickly came up with a better solution. We could watch the games on the beautiful new HDTV located at Grandma and Grandpa's vacation home down the street -- which they won't be needing since they returned to Virginia yesterday -- once we relocate the TV to our living room!
