Not much has happened since the last post.

Except that I had a baby. This one right here:Benjamin Eager Wiginton

Sometime soon, I will try to post the full dramatic story. The abbreviated version is that my water mysteriously broke, I didn't believe it was happening and went to work for a little while, and seven hours after I left work (including a whopping 30 minutes of labor and a surprise!-he's-breech C-section), I was holding my baby. Exactly one month before I expected to be doing that.

The sudden transition from Pregnant Lady to Mom was kind of surreal for me. And words cannot describe the incredible feeling of seeing your child for the first time. I'm getting all teary-eyed thinking about it right now. Absolutely amazing!

Here's a rare glimpse of the little guy with his pretty blue eyes open. He usually only does that around 3am (thanks, buddy!).

My dad joined in for the final installment of our author study of Eric Carle :) My parents are super wonderful. I called them around 3pm their time to say I was having a baby, and they were on a flight here by 5:30ish (did I get those times right, Mom or Dad? I'm estimating). They landed just a couple of hours after Ben was born and spent the next week and a half with us.

And just for kicks, here's one final "belly picture." :)
