Baby Theo arrived on Wednesday morning and Mom Dad & Tess are all still busy gushing over him. After only 6 hours of labor he made his debut weighing in at a hefty 8.7 oz. We were told by the nurses that our "little" boy was the biggest baby on the floor and I think (I might be partial) the most squishiest smoochest baby ever. We've only just gotten home and it's apparent that this little guy is as hungry as he is cute, lucky for us he is sleeping well and when he's awake he spends his time cooing and looking around at his big new world. For the last 9 months Matt and I have been anticipating his arrival wondering what Theo would be like and words cannot express how much MORE he is - even in our expectant imaginations we could not have have predicted the overflow of love and happiness we both feel. Our journey as a family just got bigger and better. Welcome to the world baby Theo.

In anticipation of a distracted Halloween we are taking every early opportunity to dress up and celebrate the magical season early. This past Friday Daddy took the morning off and we ventured to the zoo to partake in the annual zooboo. We originally put together this fairy costume a few months ago to attend a themed birthday party and T ended up wearing the outfit for about an hour.I wanted to get some additional wear out of it and Halloween is the perfect opportunity. It had been killing me that I didn't made a new costume for T but she was plenty excited to dress up in her fairy costume once more. My blue fairy looked like a dream walking around the reflecting pool and among the suspended pumpkin. This was our second year to zoo boo and the first time that Tess was able to pick up on the fact that other kids were dressed up as well.Oh so much fun.

Well... still no baby yet, however I was some what reassured today by an magazine article that said "no pregnancy has EVER gone on indefinitely". I was beginning to have my doubts. We finally got some pictures of the soon to be occupied baby nursery. Since we are about to start a major house renovation I was on the fence about putting any effort into a temporary space knowing that for the most part the little guy would be sleeping in our room for the next few months. In the end Daddy & I both decided that with just a little effort we could convert a tiny room we used for storage into a sweet space for our little guy. Long term plans were to move him into our current room once the renovation was completed since we will be getting a larger bedroom, but after seeing how charming his little room came out we may just keep him there for a wee be longer. My favorite part of the room is the Rube Goldbergeque mural on the wall I think the whole space is just perfect.

Baby is due this week and trying everything I can to keep my mind off the fact that... BABY IS DUE THIS WEEK. Despite all efforts to will him to come faster he and mother nature are taking their own sweet time and going the distance. I have been taking everyone's advice and enjoying these last precious days of being a threesome. Getting out and about is challenging but staying at home with a toddler can be enough to drive anyone crazy. Tess has tons of energy these days and we have been trying to squeeze in some seasonal fun while the weather has been so lovely and while Mommy still can. Last weekend we headed off to the pumpkin patch and picked out a few choice gourds and when we got home we were all still in the pumpkin mood so we... painted mommy's belly to look like a big ol' jack-o-lantern and took some fun family pictures.
