another sneak!

... ok, i have decided to share another sneak peek here - check out this album i created for my DH for father's day (btw, i KNOW he - DH - is stalking this blog so i don't know how much of a surprise this will be for him) - this is one of our new chipboard binder albums but in petite 4" x 4" size! it was a perfect little album i could create in about 2 hours! AND you see the "dad" on the cover - those are new maya road alphabets too - and the good news is that we have more than 1 set, actually more than 2 sets, oh yeah more than 3 sets that are coming up (i will keep you guessing on how many sets we have in all - LOL). and that is all i can spill today...

...but a great story about david as father's day is coming up - this one is during noah's birth. my DH has always been squimish when it comes to blood, needles, etc. even if i am getting a cut, needle, etc, he can't stand it. i was worried he wasn't going to be able to make it through noah's birth. he was actually doing really well during the whole process, he was holding one of my legs as i pushed - he was even telling me he could see noah had a full head of hair, etc.

i thought we were going to make it all the way to noah's arrival. but then about 3 pushes from the end, the doc was getting ready and grabbed her pair of scissors and suddenly david says "someone needs to come get caroline's leg, i am going to pass out". my leg falls to the ground (from the epidural) and david has taken 5 steps back and has passed out. the nurse calls for backup nurses and they come and 1 grabs my leg and another grabs some OJ for david. i can see him out of the corner of my eye - he is out - his eyes rolled to the back of his head.

so i continue my pushes and noah is out, the doc says "who is going to cut his umbilical cord?" and david pops up and grabs the scissors and says "i will do it!" but i was looking at him - he still looked pale and green at the same time and was not fully there from what i can see. so i said "david, you need to sit down, i will cut the cord". so i grabbed the scissors from him and cut noah's cord. and that is going to be a story we tell noah over and over again. i think we might have even captured some of it on video (LOL!)

anyhow, here is to david and all of the other daddies out there - old and new ones.
have a great father's day!
