what a day...

...well today didn't turn out like i expected to. i was coming back from a run this morning and my DH greets me with a "you need to pick our friend up from the hospital, she had her baby". this is one of my friends who had wanted to have her baby at home. well through a series of events, her baby decided she was not going to wait for the doula (midwife) and she was ready to come right on out. i am sure the ambulance ride was quite exciting for her and her mom eh. anyhow, her DH is really sick with the flu and so b/c of that they hadn't even put in a car seat in the car so luckily we had my car and noah's car seat ready! my friend also needed some clothes and a diaper bag too. so i spent the day getting her home, taking some pics of the baby and buying some food for her (and some soup for her DH)... i am sure this one will be for the scrapbooks.

but as days go, i am alway joyful to come back to this sweet baby.

he is turning into quite a character but most importantly he really chills and enjoys life - this pic represents how he is most of the time. we are so lucky and blessed to have noah here with us. when i was pregnant, i really honestly wanted a girl. i was used to being around girls. it was always deb and i. i didn't think i would be ready for a boy. but boy oh boy, there is not another baby in the world i could love more and i am so glad that God tested me and gave me noah. b/c i wouldn't have it any other way.

and as promised, here is a pic of my next *sweet* rak:

you need to post here if you want to win this - a sheet of rubons with some sheer flowers and some matching ribbons! my requirements are the following:

1. post here but non-anon between now and monday - tell me you need this stuff (LOL)

2. and if you win, you will send me a pic of the LO so i can post it on my blog. so there is a twist to this one, i want to see you use it. i know, i know, it is so pretty that you want to hoard it as do i but i want to see you extend your creativity and use our stuff and show me what you can do. and if you win, you have to allow me to post the LO on my blog. and if i find that you won and you don't, i will come and squeeze a LO out of you (totally kidding).

3. um that's it, everyone can play in this RAK - you will only be like the 4th person in the whole world to fondle our rub-ons.

have a great weekend!

I love your photos & stories of Noah - so sweet. I remember when my son was born (23 yrs ago) and falling in LOVE! It is still he same whenever I see his face or think of him in my heart! Love the ribbons (always) and rubons are awesome - I can't wait to use them! Caren

I am in the middle of a scrapping marathon! In the last 2 days I have done 14 pages! Managed to finish up all the Xmas photos and today I am moving onto the Easter ones!

I have been using up lots of stuff I have been hoarding for ages. I would love to use up some of your stuff and of course you can put it on your blog!

Noah is looking soooo cute. Your friend is probably very grateful for your help.

I would love to try out your new rubons. Drool, drool, drool, drool. So far the best LO's I have done have been because of your challenges, so I will definately make a LO. :-)

I would love to take your new rub-ons for a test drive, and the ribbons and die-cuts!!! They would definately make a wonderful layout or two, and I would love for you to post them!!!

Please don't put me in for the RAK, but when are the flowers and rubons going to hit the stores????

Those ribbons are so delicious! I would relish the chance to use those with the new rubons on a layout. Its been a rough week for me emotionally and scrapping has been hard. Those goodies may be just what the doctor ordered!

I love the pic of your sweet Noah. He looks like such a content and happy baby. You are very lucky! I'm sure your friend was very grateful you could help her out!

I'm so glad you were able to help your friend out. I hope she and baby and her DH are doing better now.
Love that photo of Noah! He looks so content! I hear ya about the whole wanting a girl! That's how I felt a couple months ago but for some reason, my mind is changing. And now it just doesn't matter if it's a boy or a girl. I'm so glad you have this sweet boy in your life!

What a gorgeous boy! They are precious - I have two of my own LOL!! Would love to win your RAK - with the two boys I don't get to use a lot of flowers or "pretty" and have decided I have to scrap more about me so I can use the "girlier" scrappy stuff

NUTS!! The last post was mine, I said to use "other" (as I'm not a blogger) and it put me as anonymous :(

So, anyway - I really would love to be in the running for the RAK - those rubons are to die for!
