Life in the Green House

I blog at Life In The Green House, Green because it's our last name, not because of a reduced carbon footprint. I started blogging to keep everyone up-to-date once my daughter arrived and it has since become much more. In essence the blog is a snapshot of our life, an extension of my need to talk all day long. I'm saved by His grace, a wife and mother, incurably southern, blonder than nature intended and a lover of all things caffeinated.

Showering Baby Boy

I had a beautiful baby shower this past Saturday to celebrate our sweet baby boy. The countdown is on around here, and we’re less than three weeks away from his scheduled arrival date.

35 weeks

I completely skipped over 34 weeks, I couldn’t coordinate with my photographer (ahem, Allen) to get a photo. I was in pajamas by the time he came home, and I don’t think oversized mens tee shirts and worn out yoga pants are that great of a look on me, so I’ll spare you. How Far Along:...more
