These are a few of my favorite things....

**includes pages for crucial milestons, such as "My First Snoball" and "My First Evacuation"

...just wanted to make sure I hadn't lost you with all the baby talk!

Anyhoo, have you been able to pick up on my not-so-subtle hints?  Chez Haynes will be welcoming a bebe in February!  Enough time for the wee one to maybe even make a tiny appearance at Mardi Gras 2011, since it will be so late.  I have been dying to share this news with Gimlet Nation for, well, about 8 weeks, but have had to keep mum for all of the obvious reasons.  Now the news is out there for the interwebs, and we invite you to share in this adventure with us!

I promise my posting will become more regular again.  It has been somewhat of a challenge to muster up the energy and well, well-ness, to post each day.  Now that the second tri is upon us, I am feeling almost back in the saddle!  Thanks for not giving up on me in my post slumps over the past two months.



P.S.  There will certainly be much talk about how the chickpea is a Nola Baby through and through.  Beau's family, however, has already made every effort to ensure that he/she rightfully knows its Hoosier roots.  They have already begun to spoil bebe with all things cute and all things Indiana.  Check it.

"H is for Hoosier: An Indiana Alphabet" book, courtesy of Beau's brother, Chris, and his beautiful wife    Courtney.  I have already read it twice....and have learned so much about Indiana.  No mention of John Dillinger, though.  (Love that even the cover states it all: red barn? Check. b-ball/b-ball shoes?  Check.  corn?  Check. hay?  Check. cats?  I guess that is "a thing?"  Please advise, Indiana readers.)

Exhibit 2.  Bib (and non-pictured IU onesie) from Beau's brother, Geoff, and his delightful lady, Kayla.  All ready for Hauteans Reunion 2011!  (Likely bebe's inaugural road trip to Terre Haute....)


  1. YAYYYY!!!!!!!!!

  2. Congratulations!!!!!!! So exciting! I was a Nola baby but raised in Asheville, NC. Orient Expressed here you come!

  3. CONGRATS!!! Jessie, that is great news! You will be a great mom!

  4. YAY! for Lil Squirts! My friend Renee is one of the creators ;) Can't wait for Fleurdelicious to come out!!

  5. BTW -- congrats!!! I commented before I read all the post!

  6. Thanks so much, sweet commenters! It means alot!

  7. Yaaaaaay. Your shower gift of onesies from Storyville is all but purchased!

  8. yahoo! one of the hautean counsins who is so exited herself. can't wait for the bebe cousins/twins to meet one another. big hugs.

  9. Congrats Jessie! That is going to be one lucky kid!

  10. So happy for you guys! This baby is going to be so, so stylish! Can't wait for you to post pictures of the nursery once you start. I am sure it will be amazing! xoxo

  11. The Haynes bambino will surely be a spectacular mix of the Nola and Hautean spirit! Happy to hear that you are feeling better as you continue to be "on stork watch" or " in the pudding club" (insert favorite weird euphemism here).

    Also, if you ever get any feedback on the cat as symbol of Indiana, please share, I am of course interested...

  12. Yay! Congratulations! To say I cannot wait to meet bebe Haynes is an understatement!

  13. How exciting! Congratulations!

  14. Just looking at the Colorforms brings back the smell of them. I loved them as a child!!
    As the Grandmama to be, I am soooo excited. I agree with everyone that this is one lucky baby to have Jessie and Beau as parents. He/She doesn't yet know how cool that will be. KS

  15. What exciting news!!!! I was reading this post thinking, "she sure does love baby stuff." No wonder!!!!!!


  16. Congrats! Can't wait to exchange baby ideas :D

  17. Hooray!! I cannot wait to meet the newest addition. If it is truly a NOLA baby you will be at some of the MG parades!

  18. Jessie, congratulations! How exciting to celebrate that the great news is out! This Chicago Auntie (and Uncle!) cannot wait for bebe Haynes to arrive. We love sharing this adventure with you and Beau! xoxo
