It’s been a busy weekend around here.

Foo’s room is completely cleared out thanks to my dad & Husband. When we moved in, I had this brilliant idea to put all of the boxes we needed to sort through in the baby’s room, thinking it would force me to go through them & get them out of there a little faster than I would if they were in the basement. Apparently I was wrong. They’ve just been hanging out since we moved in & I decided yesterday that they had to go. Dad & Husband carried everything from the second floor of our house to the basement [they’re rock stars, I tell you!]. Now all we need is stuff for the baby & well… the baby. Then it’ll be a complete room. I honestly can’t believe how far behind I am on the nursery thing. Most women I know have it done by now. I’ve barely even started. Oh well. It’ll get done. Besides, it’s not like Foo’s going to know if there aren’t any pretty things hanging on his walls when he comes home from the hospital, right?

What else have we done? Husband got a bunch of stuff hung up in our bathroom [I’ll refrain from shouting “Finally!” from the rooftops]. We’re just waiting on some closet organizers to get everything put away in our master bedroom. I have all kinds of plans for that room, but with the baby coming I’m sure they’ll get shoved to the back burner.

Happy Father’s Day to any dads out there! Hope it’s a wonderful day for all of you. 🙂

Blog, the first.

It seems very popular amongst my friends these days to have a blog, so I figured “What the heck?” Let’s hope I update this thing more frequently than I do the family web page I set up over a year ago. In my defense, I’ve long since forgotten the password I used for that website.

So. Introductions. If you’re reading this, you must know something about us. Otherwise, I’m not quite sure how you’ve found us. I’m MamaPhan, my husband is Husband & we are currently awaiting the arrival of “Baby Foo” sometime in late July. Foo is a little boy & quite the show off. Unfortunately, he didn’t show off enough for his daddy, so Husband’s going on my word & the word of the ultrasound technician that Foo’s a boy. Why Foo? Apparently my kid likes loves the Foo Fighters. We saw them in concert recently & he danced & danced. He still dances if they come on the radio & it’s turned loud enough for him to hear it. Crazy kid already. What can I say, I’m blessed. And yes, Foo has a real name. We’ve chosen not to share it until he makes his grand entrance into the world.

We’re trying to do this whole child birthing thing naturally. Or rather, I am. Husband is 100% behind me & has been really supportive. I’m lucky to have that in my life & I try not to take it for granted.

The story behind the name of the blog? We’re Phillies fans. Poor Foo doesn’t have a chance. Totally kidding. As long as he doesn’t decide at five that he’s the world’s largest Yankees/Red Sox/Mets/Marlins fan, we’ll support him. He has no choice about his football team though. He’s going to bleed Steelers black & gold just like his mommy. 🙂 Foo’s daddy isn’t a Steelers fan, he’s a Minnesota Vikings fan. Really quite harmless.

Cross your fingers that I update often enough for everyone. If I don’t, I give you permission to shank me [you know who you are ;)].
