Losing Things...

Of all the things to lose... we managed to lose our camera somewhere between the labor/delivery room and the postpartum room. So, we are limited on pictures during our hospital stay and our ride home... thankfully we had an old camera sitting at home but I feel naked without my camera. If anyone knows how much I love to scrapbook... you know - I always have my camera within arms reach.

So, if you happen to be at CRMC in the labor/delivery area... and see a Sony camera laying around... let me know!

Since I am sitting here thinking about loosing things... I went and stepped on the scale. The day before I went to the hospital, the doc says I had gained 27 pounds total. As of just a bit ago, I have 6 pounds to go to be back at my pre-prego weight and its only been 9 days!! Hopefully because I am breastfeeding, I will loose alittle more than just the 6 pounds!

Our First Week Home!

We survived our first week! Yipee! Actually, it wasn't that bad. Lack of sleep has a whole new meaning, but other than that - we set our routine within the first couple of days and even had a few visitors by Thursday.

Daddy has learned to multi-task - talk on the phone, be half asleep, and babysit!
The Chamber boys finally meet (Sol on the left, Tommy on the right)
Aunt Stephanie drove Forrest and Kirkland 100 miles one way, just to spend a few hours with Tommy. We love our Aunt Steph!
Aunt Stephanie didn't like to share Tommy with anyone!

Tommy's Room is DONE!

Most everything in the room was home-made or has a special home-made touch to it.
Thanks Nana and Papa for the Armoire! We painted it and added new pulls to it.

The crib was bought from a friend but we splurged on the bedding. We took extra fabric and framed the artwork ourselves. The bookshelf was Tom's from back in his college days, amazing what a little paint will do!

Tom and I hand-painted the wall decorations.

The blanket on the back of the chair was hand-made by my grandmother when I was born. The blanket on the arm of the chair was hand-made by Michelle, Tommy's 12-yr old cousin. The blanket on the bassinet (borrowed from my sister, Joy) was hand-made and given to Tommy from his Aunt Sharyl.
Most of all - the wood floors were installed (in the whole house) by Tommy's Papa! Don't they look awesome!!

So as you can tell, ALOT of love went into Tommy's room.

38-weeks and the FSU Season Opener

Yep! I made it to the season opener AND even the Chattanooga game!
