josephine mae walker
july 22, 2012 
12:35 pm 
9 lbs. 3 oz. 21 in.

born in the car on the way to the hospital!

josephine's birth story by her mama, jennelle:

"Quick version of her birth story: we started timing contractions at 11:27am. They were only 1-2 mins apart and lasting for 1 min. So, Clint took the kids to a friends house down the street. We left a little after noon for the hospital, which is about 20 mins away. Josephine just couldn't wait even though Clint ran a few red lights on the way! She was born just a few mins away from the hospital. My mom caught her and put her on my chest right before we got there. We guess her birth was around 12:35pm. Fastest and easiest birth!"

 i get to spend the whole weekend with my awesome sister & family and the newest lil' nugget

did it or didn't it?

so i dream, seriously. every. single. night.
and they are real vivid: like, did that happen or didn't it? when i wake up in the morning.
and i am very lucky because i've had some pretty cool co-stars in my dreams.
last night's co-star: robert pattinson.
others from previous dreams:
kristen stewart
daniel cudmore
will ferrell
taylor lautner

bid adieu

to an era... 4 decades of hard work!

 this weekend i have one thing planned:
sunday night goodbye dinner for my baby brother!
he goes off to school in about a week. 
[cries, i remember the day he was born! 
-and we still have the recording of the news story that day of my mom using
 midwives and having 5/7 children at home, baby bro was a superstar from birth]
my parents will finally be empty-nesters after a short 40 years
of constantly having AT LEAST one child in their home.
[almost 40 years to the day, as my eldest brother turned 40 on AUGUST 22nd.]

so a big
to my parents for a successful 40 years of constant diapers, tears, hugs, birthday parties, barbies, legos, hot wheels, cheer, volleyball, football, soccer, softball games & try-outs, drivers ed, summer vacations & summer reading programs. 
hooray for making it out alive & keeping us all alive and on the right track in life. 
thank you for being amazing examples in your faith & hard work ethic and for being incredible parents.
NOW for the fun part:
[11 grand kids & counting]
time to spoil them like crazy & send them home at the end of the night ;)
oh, and break out the barbies, legos & hot wheels again!


normally it's TGIT [thursday]
as i normally work 4 ten hour days,
but today i am filling in for the sick, so TGIF
bonus, it's a very short day, only 4 hours.

 or call me, maybe?
love this song, hear it everywhere i go...
radio, or you know that girl in the grocery store singing it.
even that boy passing out his "business cards"
i've jumped on this band wagon late, but it's ok.
and here i come to find this amazing video featuring two of my faves!
justin bieber & selena gomez.
ENJOY :) :) :) now it too can be stuck in your head all night.
