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?

God does decide and I think he wasn't done with me yet.

She's not in NY anymore. She's here in Washington - it was just too far for her. She's going to uni locally. Thank you!

She's starting to be known as Pretty Piper.

Are you running a day care? That's quite a feat, esp with 12 to watch out for. *shivers*

I'll take you up on the offer when I want a day off. :) Thanks for the congrats!

Thank you. From the first night, she just caught us (Joe and me) in her net.

I wish I could express how thoroughly surprised I was - and in a good way. :)
