Annnnnd.....I'm Back!
Thank you to all that have wished us congratulations and well wishes...our little man is just perfect. This past week has literally been one of the most challenging yet rewarding experiences of my life. There is nothing that can prepare you for motherhood, it really is "on the job training." Isn't it crazy to think that you need a license to drive a car, but almost anyone can have a baby and it doesn't come with a manual or instructions?! Crazy concept isn't it?

Everyone's birth story is so different and there are no two that are the same, and last Friday I went into labor not knowing how my story was going to be written. Needless to say, if you let your mind go it can come up with a thousand different scenarios of what "could happen". I think fear of  the unknown in most situations is one of the hardest things to be comfortable with (for me anyway), so not knowing what to expect was a challenge to say the least.  En route to the hospital with the hubs, I felt like we were in a movie. My contractions were 3 minutes apart, hubs was driving like Franck from Father of the Bride II, and I was grunting like a weight lifter. Great visual, I know. By the time we arrived I was ready for my epidural and I mean READY. And after 16 1/2 hours of waiting to meet my little man, he finally arrived with the most delicious cheeks I ever did see! And that started my love affair with baby Graham. After all was said and done, it turned out the fear of it all was worse than the actual experience. It's true what they say, it's pain that you forget about  (which is why some people have like 19 kids)!

So after a week, we are now adjusting to life as a family of three and trying to find our groove. The first couple days were definitely not easy but we have learned new things everyday and everyday gets a little easier.  It's amazing how many things you can learn from a little tiny person who can't even tell you what's wrong or how to help them. I'm now realizing that not only do you become parents, but you also kind of become mind readers, as you learn to pick up on your baby's signs and signals. Pretty cool.

And that's where and how the new chapter began….

Hello friends how are you all. One new thing about online games is here. Friv 4 is a site which contains Friv 4 School, Friv for School, Friv 4, Friv 4 School games and some more. On the other hand let me tell you Infofully have Knowledge Adventure Games are additionally allowed to play. One more thing about these games. On the off chance that you think about pbskids.org which depends on learning and other couple of purposes. Cooler Math Games have some fine and math games. Free time shouldn't be wasted on playing games. Enjoy yourself but not with online games.

I wanted a panel saw that was safe, easy to use and had decent accuracy. I cut a variety of materials.... wood, plastics foams, etc, and this panel saw has never let me down. It was easy to assemble and I get decent accuracy with this saw I have owned this saw for a year so far and no issues. Price was great too. Highly recommended… Panel Saw

Zap Cleaning said...

I have to say that I is a magic that my roof look much better after being washed. It was pretty rough looking. However, Outdoor Wash has it looking back to new. The whole process was really easy. I requested a query through their website. I was contacted that night with a quote. After I accepted it, a time was set up to come out and work on the house. There was good communication throughout the process, If you have a dirty roof and want it to look clean, then set up an appointment with zap cleaning and let them take care of it for you.
