My first scare

This morning, Krissy and I were in bed sleeping, when all of a sudden, she jumped up (well as much as a pregnant woman can jump) screaming that she was in pain. I immediately thought that she was having contractions and the baby was on the way, two months early! My mind raced, "What do I do? We have nothing prepared. Are the sheets ruined?" Well as soon I figured out where I was, Krissy yelled "I have a Crazy Charlie (Charlie Horse) on my calf!" I responded, "You're not going into labor?" She assured me that the only pain she had was in her leg and I begin to massage it out. My heart was beating like crazy for the next 15 minutes, but I'm happy to report that I acted promptly and efficiently to resolving the situation. Hopefully the same way I'll respond when the baby actually comes.

All for now,


  1. I had no idea! I am SOOOOO happy for you two! I think you guys will just be wonderful parents! I am so sad not to get to be living all close so we can hang out with this tiny perfect person! This takes me back to Valeria's baby shower and all the excited baby talk... I am happy to add another friends blog to our blog list, so we can keep up with you if that is okay. We'll have to come down for a fun dinner out sometime!!

    P.S. Justin and I were totally blown away by your fabulous photography book. We can't wait to see what you can do with Texas... A little harder subject matter in my mind!

  2. Hi Guys!
    I was so glad to get your comment on our blog and see that you have one now too! I am so sad we aren't all together anymore. I miss Asheville and our fun crew. But the next best thing is blogging. I will be sure to check in lots. I know things have been so hard for you guys, just try to keep it all in perspective. All any of us can do right now is survive through this recession. Take heart that better financial times are ahead again. We just need to make it through. As long as we all have a roof over our heads, food to eat and our beautiful children. Anyway, we are thinking of guys and so happy for your little miracle on the way. BTW, I had major charlie horses in my leg at the end of my pregnancy. They are HORRIBLE!!! Hang in there!

  3. Hi there,
    I saw your blog address on the Fowler's blog and had to say hi. I love your blog and I'm so happy I have another cute one to check every day! Congratulations...we're so thrilled for you. We'll be thinking of you and hoping the right and perfect buyer just has to have your cute house in Asheville!
    Take care.
