Awkward Mom vs Birth

Well, Awkward Mom won that battle, no need to drag it out. Or gross you out with all the details.......Of course, it might be more appropriate to say that Super Baby (nee Super Fetus) was the real champion of the birth battle. And now, for the moment you have been waiting 9 months for.........

It's a Girl!

Yes, a girl will be joining the ranks of the Awkward Family! I mean, a girl other than Awkward Mom....and I am sure she will be a bit more graceful and put together. She is already in the running for the most serene baby we have ever seen. You know, the kind you have to wake up to feed. Crazy! So, we are all adapting to our superhero family of five and we'll let you know how that goes. If I had to guess, I would guess awkwardly, but that is just a guess....

On to the important part; PICTURES!

Super Baby's 2 modes seem to be sleep and ponder. I think we have a super genius joining the family.....or a sloth.

If any of you were worried that the Super Boys were suffering any sibling resentment, this photo should relieve you. They came to see Super Baby, ignored her totally, and played with the hospital bed buttons, esp. the nurse call light.....but that is a different tale totally.

Memos to Super Fetus

To: Super Fetus
From: Awkward Mom
Date: 11/11/11
Re: Birth

Bladder, Back, and I called a meeting and we think that 11/11/11 would be a perfectly magical day for your arrival. Let us know what you think!

To: Super Fetus
From: Awkward Mom
Date: 11/12/11
Re: Birth

Seems that you were busy 11/11/11, must have been something else on your calendar, like some rib-kicking or something. No problem, 11/12/11 looks just as nice to me, Bladder, and Back. Mull it over, get back to us with a real contraction. No more fake ones, please. That just confuses matters. Thanks!

Awkward Mom vs. When is my due date again?

Fear not, fearless readers! The great Clutter Monster that has taken up residence in the living room has not eaten Awkward Mom! It may have eaten Super Cat, haven't seen him all day. But Awkward Mom is just fine; doing endless battle with the Trimester Three Triad: Tired, Tense, and Terribly Tricky Third T Word that the Thesaurus won't yield up that means I-want-this-baby-out-of-me-NOW. Until then, cute pictures of the Super Boys!!

Flying first class at the Henry Ford Museum, nothing but the best for Super P.

Super Toddler has found better travel accommodations.

Totally lame attempt at a Halloween photo; of course the Halloween pumpkin is the only one looking when the Great Pumpkin is on the TV......

And, of course, Halloween costume photos! (Our camera died on October 30th, not kidding, so these are from Awkward Dad's iPhone.....better than nothing, I suppose!) Enjoy!



PS...Awkward Mom's due date is November 15th....but Super Fetus is full-term now, so if anybody speaks fetus, come over here and convince this child the world is a fab place and he/she needs to be in it. Now. Right now. Please hurry.
