New Member to the Blanchard Family???

Today started like any other Monday. I got up, took Matt to work, went to Stroller Strides, put the baby in the stroller, and met up with Laurie and Judith. We decided to do the small hill since the Boot Camp people were there doing there thing. We were walking around the circle when Laurie and I noticed 3 puppies walking toward us; of course we yelled at Judith to look and all hurried to them. As we got closer all I can say is that it was love at first sight. Two of the puppies stopped at a safe distance, while the other ran straight to me, yes that’s right ME! I grabbed him up and fell instantly in love. We had a horrible time picking up the other two. They tried hiding in some trees, but we ended up out smarting them. Laurie took one of the boys and the girl to her friend’s house. I on the other hand took my little man home with me.
But now the fun part starts……
I called Matt to tell him that I brought home a puppy and he wasn’t to happy with me.
Adelaide loves him though. She has been running after him and him after her. He has already had 4 bowls of food and who knows how much water. If he is not eating, he is sleeping. I made him a bed for the moment out of a diaper box and some old sheets, he likes to chew on it.
Matt seems to have warmed up to him since he has been home to see him. I am still waiting for he and I to have “the talk.”

Kristie's Baby Shower

Yesterday Katy and I threw a baby shower for Kristie. As hoped for, it was a lot of fun. This was the first one I have thrown and will not be the last. I have the best group of friends, because everyone helped set up the food. I have to give special thanks to Ashley who put together the baby fruit carriage, while I wrapped Kristie's car seat (a gift from a group of us mommies). Stephanie and I made a big pimpin diaper cake. We played a game with ice, plastic babies, and watering breaking :) and a quiz game Katy came up with. I was happy to find that the kids loved the "pin the paci on the duckie" game.
I was terrified that the party would resemble Adelaide's birthday party; screaming, crying, running around like a chicken with my head cut off, panicing, and that by the time it is over I don't even rememeber it starting. Everything went really well though. I think I can breath when I have the Halloween party and for Rachel S' baby shower.
And let's not forget that Katy is the best for taking pics.

Everybody was blogging baby... Do, do, do, do, do, do, do.

Ok, so I was thinking of the kung-fu fighting song when I was naming this blog. So get it stuck in your head too.
Katy said I should start blogging since it is the cool thing to do and since I am pretty cool I am going to try it out.
I am kind of excited about this whole blogging thing. Now I just have to wonder what to blog about!?!
