Introducing Baby Zoey Brielle ...

Yesterday morning I was at work, taking care of the sick kids coming into the ER. As I was discharging a family the secretary taps me on the shoulder and says "Your mom's on the phone." I quickly finished with the family excused myself and rushed to the phone... (my mom never calls me at work.) My mother then said that my sister was in LABOR!

It was fine, but we had it all planned out with a few bumps in the road. Zoey was schedule to make her appearance on Wednesday not Monday. Zoey was supposed to come on November 26th but because of a previous c-section and some complications, my sister and her doctor decided to schedule her c-section for November 16th, tomorrow. Later my sister tells me that she started with contractions at 2am early Monday morning, they called the doctor and the doctor advised them to come to the hospital. Too bad the hospital is about 1 hour and 20 minutes away. So she quickly thew some items in a bag (shame, shame... she should have had this packed) and they rushed off to the hopsital with my 5 yr old neice, Regan in tow. Doing 80-95mph they reach the hospital and contractions for the 35 minute drive was every 2 minutes. They check her in, started monitoring the baby, placed her epidural and made my sister comfortable. Since Regan was there and no one was there to watch her, they were going to hold off untill my mother could arrive to take my neice. My mom arrived at 9:30 and the took my sister in to the OR. By 10:18 Zoey Brielle joined our family and I couldn't be more excited! So one of her first pics with her big sister!

I love this photo! It was taken with my mom's phone, since no one bothered to pack a camera. I can't get over Regan's orange lips. My mom says Regan wants to do EVERYTHING for Zoey. She feels extra special when Zoey always falls asleep in her arms. Such a little mama already. Zoey has so much hair! I know that Zoey will be loved much... WELCOME TO THE FAMILY ZOEY... Prepare for a crazy ride...

Much love,
Aunt Bobbi

I got to go away this weekend to the beach! We had such a great time hanging out with family and friends. We even got to go trick or treating! which is something I don't get to do since I don't have any kids and I don't think people would have anything appropriate for doggies!

We dressed our dogs up none the less. I found these great costumes at PetSmart for 75% off and they were great. So with out further adu ...



I loved this cow costume, Presley didn't enjoy the head piece very well, but it was so cute!

and Ellie...

We initially had a dragon costume, but I think the angel was much cuter. It was just the wings, but since our dogs have a top knot, I decided to make a halo out of pipe cleaners and wrap it around her top knot. It stayed remarkably well and didn't come off when she shook.

We went trick or treating with my roomates niece and the dogs got to go in their stroller. They were so well behaved!

One of the best trick or treaters that I heard about was a teenage mother, with her 3 mo old baby came trick o treating smoking a cigarette with either her baby's daddy or her husband. I wonder if that was her costume or if she was trick or treating for her baby... which then bring the question of "who is going to eat the candy?" AWESOME!!

I hope everyone have a safe and Happy Halloween!!

Yes it was my birthday a couple of days ago! It was wonderful! The weekend was spent with good friends that just happened to be here for the weekend, Julie and Brett, but unfortunatly Brett couldn't make it so she brought Jeremy, who was equally as fun (if not more fun, but don't tell Brett that, wink wink).

We spent the mornings at brunch and Saturday night we went down town. We bought passess for the water taxi, which was a waste of time, but fun and went from dinner at the Cheesecake Factory in the Inner Harbor, to Fells Point and then the last part was spent at Bay Cafe in Canton.

Amanda and Julie at Fells Point

Waiting for the water taxi... what best way than to have a mini photo shoot?
(Trying to get one picture with everyone in is hard if you are posing and the photographer!)

After our guests left, I combined my birthday money, and off to Best Buy to get my birthday gift! I have always had a passion for photography and read many photogs. I have owned 2 SLRs in my life and have wanted a digital SLR for many years now... So what did I do with my birthday money, you ask? I bought myself this...

Now I have a lot of learning to do, but am very excited!
As with every birthday there is always going to be sadness... the day after my birthday 4 years ago I had to put my beloved Gigi down. She was the best dog EVER! I had her for 2 years and it was just her and I.
I was young when I got her and many nights she was left till the wee hours of the morning alone and by herself, but she was always happy when I got home and never held it against me. I was working 12 hr shifts and never once was there an accident in my home!
She only lived 2 short years and lost her life to Distemper. I had her vaccinated but for some reason she didn't become immune like every other dog. I don't know if I will ever feel that way about another dog. I have Ellie now, and I love her very much... just the same if not more that Gigi, but each dog has a special place in your heart and Gigi takes a big portion of mine.
RIP Gigi Girl, you are still loved and missed VERY much!

Gigi and I the weekend we got Presley (January 2006)
After my big purchase, we got ready for dinner and my roomie took me to a wonderful dinner at my FAVORITE place, the Melting Pot, and we had delicious fondue.

Long time comming...


Making some BABY GIFTS for my for my cousin Taryn, including a baby blanket with these fabrics!
Also making those great nylon baby headbands with the flowers.

I am EXCITED to get working on them!

I made a tabby blanket for this little CUTIE 2 years ago when he was born. Taryn informed me that he is carrying it everywhere.
How Sweet!

This picture was taken last April, right after he turned 1. Now he is going to be 2!!
My mom and I are going out again in April, right before she has her new BABY GIRL!

So many new babies arriving in SPRING. If you're expecting soon, be prepared. You might be getting something TOO!
