Welcome to our little space on the net! This blog is just about our family life, and began as a way to keep family and friends updated on what was going on with my pregnancy with our first son, Gage. We've since added Evie to our family, and I continue to blog about family life, car seats, spina bifida, and anything else that catches my attention.

Yeah, that's me! I just sliced my thumb with a butter knife of all things. Pork chops on the grill, fries in the oven. Baby in his highchair and crying. Tony still at work. Yeah, It's going to need stitches. It's deep. Man-nurse Tony said that I have "an intense vagal reaction to sudden pain" because although I didn't lose *that* much blood, I felt like I was going to pass out. I did pass out once when I sprained my ankle. Scary thought with a 4 month old here with me! I sat down on the floor with my thumb wrapped in a paper towel and waited for the feeling to pass. Now it just hurts. Wanna know how I sliced my thumb with a butter knife? I was using it to try to pry the hard tube off of the flexible tube of my old vacuum cleaner so I could try to get the toy in there unlodged. Smart. At least I haven't put horse medicine on it...
