I'm not sure if I remember how to do this...  

I sort of had a baby in November. Yeah. Well, no sort of about it.

I did.

I know. 47 and pregnant. I should get my own TLC show. But in July, when I was getting a bit rounder in the middle section and I thought I felt movement even though I couldn't possibly be pregnant because I had gone through menopause since I hadn't gotten my period for a really long time, I went to the doctor and lo and behold! I was pregnant.

So much better news, let me tell you. :) I cried when I saw her on the ultrasound.

She's perfect and her name is Piper. The little bundle of joy weighed in at a whopping 10 lbs 4 oz which is funny since I gained a total of 9 pounds during the whole pregnancy. Yeah I know. Go figure.

She's 3 months now. This is her.

I can tell you more about the pregnancy and birth and the joys of Piper later but for now, here are some pics behind the cut:





Talk about a 'What did you do over the summer?' theme, huh?

Hello Piper!
I cannot believe this. Maria! Like I said on that "other" site its WONDERFUL. She is gorgeous.

Hearing about your family always makes me ridiculously happy!!!

Also, random question, did you happen to move? I sent you a card and it was returned??

Re: Hello Piper!
Hey you! She is truly beautiful. i really didn't think could do it again but I did. :)

No I didn't move. I think that I gave you my work PO box. I changed it. I'll send you a PM with the right address. Thanks again.

Piper = Perfection. Absolutely adorable. Give her a hug and squeeze from me. FanSee

Re: Piper
I hug and squeeze her so much, I worry about what i might be doing to her. LOL!

She is perfect. Thank you.
Still want him in your pack?_alicesprings on February 18th, 2011 02:57 am (UTC)
Holy shit! What a shock, huh?

You are hereby excused for going AWOL from LJ. ;)

She's gorgeous, congratulations! Love the name!
Mariaslave_o_spike on February 18th, 2011 03:23 am (UTC)
'Shock' is an understatement. LOL!

Yeah, it's been a bit hard to do the normal things in life let alone posting and such. :) I've always loved the name Piper and it just fits her perfectly. Thank you!

She is adorable. And she plans on using that on me to carry out her evil plans no doubt. :P

Thank you.

Oh, Maria! Holy cow. Okay, Piper totally counts as your "please excuse my mom's absence from LJ; she was a little busy" note. What a doll! I wanna hear all about it and see more photos and hear about the rest of your family and your restaurant and everything. Congratulations!!
Mariaslave_o_spike on February 18th, 2011 03:54 am (UTC)
Before I start, thank you for the V-day card. That was very nice of you. :)

Yep, Piper is one of the cutest excuses out there, I think. More info is coming. It just takes longer to get things out there right now though, LOL!

Thank you!!!

Mariaslave_o_spike on February 18th, 2011 03:55 am (UTC)
I've lost count of how many times I've pinched those cheeks. And kissed them.

She is a real cutie. Thank you!
lougenessislougenessis on February 18th, 2011 03:15 am (UTC)
She's a beautiful blessing. I'm happy you both are doing o.k.!
Mariaslave_o_spike on February 18th, 2011 03:56 am (UTC)
She is a blessing, I agree. I count myself lucky every time I look over at her. :) Thank you!

Congratulations!!! She's beautiful.
Mariaslave_o_spike on February 18th, 2011 03:56 am (UTC)
Thank you! She is a beauty! :)

Color me flat out flabbergasted. You could not have surprised me more, Maria, if you had said you had just been accepted as an astronaut to the Space Program. This is not how it's supposed to work. Your daughter or daughter-in-law is supposed to do all the work while you have all the fun of being a grandparent.
Ah, I guess nature decided you were still young and vital. My congratulations to you and your husband for having the courage and ability to brave the rigors of parenting one more time. Such a beautiful child, too.
Warm hugs for both of you. ♥
Mariaslave_o_spike on February 18th, 2011 04:13 am (UTC)
Oh didn't I tell you? I was also accepted into the space program too. But I had to turn it down cuz you know...baby. *shrugs*

However, I heard they plan on putting chimps back into space so I gave them Mikey's number. :P

And yeah, I should be letting Alex do all the work now but hey! She's only 22 and she should have some time before that happens.

Young and vital mean totally different things after you give birth completely naturally and you can't get up and walk. I had Donovan at 40 and I was okay to go right after. This time I took a full 24 hours before I could get up and around.

Piper is perfect and beautiful and a sweetheart. I wouldn't do it any other way. Thank you JJ. *hugs you*

Mariaslave_o_spike on February 18th, 2011 04:13 am (UTC)
She is a cutie alright. :) Thank you!!!

Mariaslave_o_spike on February 18th, 2011 04:15 am (UTC)
Thank you! She is cute and knows it too! :)
Jackiejackieville on February 18th, 2011 03:37 am (UTC)
CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! She's so precious and darling!!!!! *melts*

I am so thrilled for you and your family!!!! *squishes and loves*
Mariaslave_o_spike on February 18th, 2011 04:15 am (UTC)
I know. A part of me melts every time I look at her and she smiles at me.

Actually, I just looked over at her right now and she smiled at me and I'm melting as I write. LOL!

Thank you! *squishes you back*
mdlawmdlaw on February 18th, 2011 04:09 am (UTC)
