My Husband the Super Hero

So last Thursday at 10min to 10:00am a knock was heard at my door. A knock could mean many things a friend, a package or maybe Ed McMan with a check. I opened the door to find the manager of the apartment building with a message for me. Craig was in an accident, but "he's OK. Go to the Emergency Room right now." The words OK and Emergency Room, in my opinion, don't really go together. However, I didn't freak out but I was flustered a little. Thank the heavens for visiting teachers who do what they are suppose to do. I called for a babysitter and like an angel she was able to watch Riley and do what ever else I needed. I arrived at the hospital 20min later. It was scary to see Craig strapped to a board and to find that his clothes had been cut off of him in order to do test. It remind me of the Incredible Hulk's transformation. Clothes all in tatters expect for around his waist. Strange thing to think of standing in the emergency room. After we found out the results to the test I began to feel a little dizzy. All the excitement finally caught up to me. I quickly sat down so as not to make the situation any worse. So what happened you ask?

Craig fell 10ft. through the roof of a spray room (where cars are repainted). He ended up with only a compression fracture in his back and possible injury to his shoulder. We go to a specialist on Thursday to make sure the injuries do not require any major surgery. Every day Craig gets a little better. He is able to walk and sit upright for longer periods of time. Healing from any injury of the body heart or mind takes one day at a time.

Danny Boy by the Muppets

According to legend, kissing the Blarney Stone endows the kisser with the gift of gab (great eloquence or skill at flattery). If that's what happens when a person kisses the Blarney stone, Ireland can keep it.

Guess what?

It's a girl!! Her name will be Eliza Jane Swartz. Eliza is a great aunt on my side and Jane is Craig's mom's middle name. Now I have to buy things for a little girl. It would have been eaiser if the baby was male, but my mom says I NEED a girl. Now I get to see how Craig is with all the little dresses and shoes and other girly things. (I sure hopoe my little girl isn't too girly, I never was.) I think she will be a daddy's girl like Riley is a mamma's boy. Well see.

If you look close you can see her feet. You can see the profile of her back, little butt and then one foot that looks as if it is pressing on the inside of my tummy. The other foot is sticking out from benind the other.

This is a stright on view of her face. Looks kind of creepy.

This one's for y'all!!

This is for my mom and for Ariana. I think I am about 19wks. I don't ever remember how far along I am. The only date I am concered with is my due date, July 4. Craig felt the baby on Sunday. He happened to place his hand right on top of the baby. She kicked him and ran away. I say "she" because I think it is a girl. We find out for sure on Feb 12.
