Good friends of ours Anthony and Tricia gave birth to their beautiful bundle of joy Saturday, May 28th @ 9:27am. 6lbs / 8oz / 19 1/4 inches. Notice I didn't reveal the baby's gender. I am anxiously waiting on her to post it in her blog and / or on facebook before I go blabbing.
It was soo cool being on the "other side" so to speak. Saturday morning we gathered at the hospital and waitied patiently for the news. It was fun to hang out while everyone guessed the gender of the baby, told stories about the parents birth, and shared in the nervous anticipation of first time grandparents.
The Dr. and nurses passed us by and gave us the thumbs up that Mommy and baby were fine, but they wouldn't reveal the gender, they were sworn to secrecy. We were sitting on pins and needles waiting for the revelation. . .. . then finally Daddy Scruggs finally arrived with his footprints and pictures.
Stay tuned, once I get the thumbs up I'll reveal gender and, of course, provide photos!

Even babies can have bad days. Today started as a good day for Miss Jenesis. Hanging out chit chatting with her peditrician; getting kudos for weighing in at a whooping 15 pounds. Then BAM before she knows it she's being stuck TWICE by the two "nice" nurses. Geez, it's hard out here for a baby trying to steer clear of diseases. The worst part is; she has to go back in two months and do it all over again. Who knew staying well could hurt so bad?!!?!?!?

My little Crabby Pattie FINALLY went down for a nap. She definitely fought it tooth and nail. It's hilarious to watch her little eyelids droop then spring open, droop, spring open until finally sleep wins the battle. Granted she is notorious for only staying down about 30 minutes. I consider that a power nap because she wakes up smiling and ready for fun. Here is her "I soo need a nap" face.
hmm, the way it's storming outside makes me want to crawl in bed and take my own power nap!!

Verbal communcation has always been been my strong point. Jenesis is totally following in my footsteps. Her play time is filled with constant gurgling and cooing. I love to hear her exercise those little vocal cords. I once heard when babies are gurgling, gooing and cooing they are chatting with the angels sent to protect them. I anticipate the day I understand what she's saying. . LOL. In the meantime I just eavesdrop on her "chatting up the angels".

Hello Friends and Family ~ Welcome to Campbell Castle Chats! Sunday, May 8, 2011, I celebrated my very first Mother's Day. . .can you say AWESOME! It was truly a blessing beyond measure. I woke up to my awesome hubby, and gorgeous daughter. I have waited for this day for quite a long time. It was such an honor to be among the masses in church called "Mother"! I was over-whelmed with peace and joy. Father, thank you for hearing and answering one of my most treasured prayers.
Thank you to all the well wishers for the cards, calls and text messages. :-)
We love and appreciate each of you for your love and blessings.
p.s. One of my most treasured gifts was a digital photo display unit. You'll see it full of pics of Jenesis when you visit.
