We're expecting a RL filly!
« on: May 08, 2014, 05:23:19 am »
And by "filly", I mean of the human variety.   :P

As a result, I've been a little busier with my free time - lots of things to think about/prepare...  It's my first, so I'm pretty nervous!  Also, I like my sleep a little more now, too, which isn't helping.

Anyhow, I wanted to explain to you why I've been a little more MIA...and share in my excitement.   :)

She's due at the end of August.  Wish us luck!


PS:
The biggest downfall?  It's finally getting gorgeous outside, and the doctor highly advised against riding...  Not sure my willpower is strong enough to cut that out 100%.

You must have a sixth sense - we're actually in the hospital right now, but get released tomorrow assuming we both pass some final tests. Little girl Haven Faye was born at 12:40am on September 5 after a very crazy labor with a few scares.  Thankfully it all ended well for all of us. :)  She's pretty perfect (if you trust my biased opinion! Lol), and she was born with TONS of long (more than an inch!) dark hair.  I need to figure out how to get a picture up to you guys since they're up on Facebook only and they don't link well. Life has been a little crazy but in a good way.

Thank you!  These last few days have been a bit of a time warp.  It's a learning curve, but I think we're settling into a nice groove finally.  I see I've missed the start of the Select Auction, which is probably for the best, ha.  I will EVENTUALLY get to check it out, and see how my ponies did last time out...
