Any Day Now. Really!

We are just waiting. Here is a picture I snapped of Kandace as we were going out for a little walk. It was a lovely day out, in between some rain and hail!

Kandace Today

If you’re on Twitter, be sure to follow us. I am “brigleb” and Kandace is “kandacerae”. We’ve also added our last five tweets to the sidebar there on the right, so you can always check them there too.

As soon as we hear anything, we’ll be sure to say something on Twitter, on this here blog, and who knows, maybe we’ll even find time to call a few family members. Just kidding!



Many of you probably got invitations to join Geni over the last 24 hours. We got interested in this because Ray’s uncle had been adding family information – he has the Briglebs dated back to the 1700’s.


I called Grandma today to see if she might have some of our family information to add. Turns out, much of the Ream side of the family is already up there, added by a fella named Guy Gnirk (who Geni says is my second cousin twice removed).

Looking over all of this has been so cool. There are many dates and places to fill in, so feel free to tinker around…

Baby Shower

We spent this weekend getting ready for and then celebrating our baby shower.


The spread was amazing! Our dear friends Michelle and Steven took time away from their B&B (and publishing their first cookbook) to create a feast for us all. And, the cake was gorgeous (thanks, Kate) – I wish I had a close-up picture!


Our ever so creative friends and kiddos decorated onesies for the baby (onesie being one of those many new words to creep into our vocabulary, along with swaddler and footsie).


Gift opening was so fun. I believe this kiddo’s wardrobe has vastly overshadowed mine at this point. We were so touched by all of the handcrafted gifts like hats, blankets, cape, curtains, and more!

Ray and I are in full recovery mode today what with the loosing of an hours sleep and the celebration going on late into the evening. Remember when it was late nights of hopping bars that would put us into recovery mode!?

Seriously, 36 Weeks!?

We’re definitely in the final stretches of pre-baby life. They say baby now weighs almost 6 pounds (like a crenshaw melon) and is more than 18 1/2 inches long. I’m thinking they’re getting pretty creative with fruits at this point!


Good news is that she’s already in proper position for the birth. Our midwife mentioned again yesterday that we’re going to have a rambunctious baby, which I can attest to already. Annoying news is that I’m to up my protein to 100 + grams a day for the next month, which is turning out to be absolutely agonizing…
