...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....)
