So close to 10 weeks!!

I'm going to try and be better about blogging, before I lose all of the free time I've ever had.

Funny Baby Ecard: I wish we had even a clue as to what we're doing.

Here is an update:

I fell that the doctor's office yesterday, fell (up) the stairs... Only to have the PA push the other pregnant girls to the side to make sure I was ok. I have that effect on people.

I am fine. Skinned my knee a bit but was a little shaken up and Mary Margaret's heart rate was a little high when we did the sonar thingy, so I got a surprise ultrasound!

MM looks a little weird because well, she's floating in life-giving fluid and they are taking these pictures through my skin. But other than that you can see she's already GORGEOUS (like her mother, natch).

She does have her mother's precious lips, although most people think she looks like her daddy.

And although you might think it, she's NOT sucking her thumb, but covering her mouth with her hand. Always a lady that little one is.

Confirmation from the ultrasound tech, her head is nestled nicely under my left rib cage. Super.
Hope she moves her little self around before October, because I'm going to be an angry momma if she doesn't.

We have NO plans this weekend, I'm excited to pretend to clean the house, nap, maybe walk Buckley, and do a little bit of shopping (?) I need to find a floor lamp for the nursery...that excuse will work.

I am so lame

So it's July... and If looking back, You'll see I posted last about the new year.

I'm obviously very good at blogging... Very up to date and keeping everyone well informed.

I thought I would catch everyone up on thing going on in my life.

1) If you don't know me in real life... hence not friends on Facebook, because that is the peak of friendship these days... Mr. McCants and I are pregnant with our first little one. She is due in Early October (pray that she doesn't stay in there until Halloween, because who knows what kinda monster she might look like then..) and will be cute, sweet, wonderful, and sleep through the night immediately (the last one is a lie).

Here is proof...

2) We are now collecting any free baby stuff or extra load of money people would like to lovingly give. Contact me and we will talk about my address :)  

3) I have started crocheting again and am almost done with Mary Margaret's (ohh, right that's baby McCantses name) first blanket. It's coral colored, has little bobbles on it, in short it is the cutest thing every that I have made (and seen). Obviously MM will be the cutest thing I have ever made.

4) None of my t-shirt fit. I have to wear Charlie's

5) I bought pregnancy jeans today, it was a sad day. I even went up 2 (or 3) sizes not to mention the extra they give you for being pregnant...

6) There is no such thing as sexy pregnancy panties. I think that explains itself

7) The McCants house has a new love complete and utter obsession for (Pasteurized) goat cheese. It is like crack cocaine to Charlie and I (and MM too, but she has no choice). If you haven't tried it. It's good, seriously, not like people say Plain Greek yogurt with "some honey" is good, I mean really. Stinking, you'll search the house trying to find SOMETHING to put it on, only to just eat it straight... kinda good.

8) We fall more and more in love with Buckley everyday. I mean I'm worried (only kinda-sorta) about how he's going to take the attention shift when MM is born... But in the last months he has defiantly gotten more sweet. And he's just so stinking cute... I mean come on, look at this.

How does a picture like this not make you smile?

Buckley will be loving the extra food particles thrown on the floor, although he'll be waiting for a little while before MM is up and eating food she can thrown/drop.

9) Charlie is still plugging away at Duke Divinity School, Although he finally saw the light (I tried to show him the light long ago... boys...) and switched to a Masters of Theological Studies (MTS for those in the "know") which makes his masters program only a 2 year degree (Thank the Lord) which means he can stop sitting/ laying around that gorgeous campus all day and get back to real people's work sooner :)

10) Mary Margaret is supposed to be born the Thursday before Charlie has reading week (Reading week is when the wife of Grad Students assume they are sleeping/napping/going to lunches while everyone else is still working like normal adults. Although rumor has it this isn't true). I'll be taking bets now to see if she really does come out of my lady parts in said time frame.

11) I usually like to end things on an even number... I know I'm weird like that. But this is more a request than anything. If anyone knows a stay at home mom in the Raleigh/ Durham area that would like a little more scratch (note: Money) a few times a week, Chuck and I are looking for sweet loving moms or not moms... to watch MM starting spring semester (2013) for about 2 days/week. We're trying our hardest not to have to pay "The Man" almost my whole salary for daycare.

So drop me a line or a message if you know someone.
