Anna Sue Carberry

Here's a few photos of our 7-pound, 10-ounce bundle of love. Anna's super-sweet, calm and easy to soothe. She fits right in....The photos pretty much tell it.....

Special, So Special

Jenelle's girlfriend's put on a blessing way for her this last week, in anticipation of Anna's arrival....They made her feel pretty special.....She has a cool network of mommy friends in South Orange County. Funny how women can always get a good network going, wherever they live.

The brothers wanted to go to the shower but they hung with dad for the day. The sun hat was left over from the blessing. Fits Evan well....

Mommy and Her Warriors

This is Jenelle's, "get that camera away from me," look. Had a bit of bomb scare last week. Jenelle had several contractions right before the old Outdoor Retailer slog to Salt Lake.  Anna wasn't ready. Just shifting a bit. As you can see, Jenelle's carrying her well....

Jenelle has been using the job chart with the boys. Clean room, talk nice, help out, earn stickers. It always works. For at least a week.

Sam and Evan labored pretty hard to earn their costumes. Sam started with Iron Man. But ended up being a ninja like Evan.

Pretty stealth.....

To Time, With Love

Dear Time,

If we may, we'd like to ask if you could possibly slow down? You're here, then you're gone. And the extra special moments come and go so fast with you. Who knows if we'll ever get all the cousins in one spot like this again? With grandpa sitting at that exact spot, with the grandkids in that exact same pose, having that much fun?

We're glad you allowed us to be there to grab a quick still. These moments in you, Time, make us appreciate being parents.

Thanks again. And please, try to slow up, just a little.

All the best as you move forward,

The Carberry's

Jenelle is nesting. Hanging pictures. Getting our spare bedroom ready for the little lady. Cleaning up after us. Trying to sit as much as possible.

And to give her time to do this, we go do stuff. Like ride the public trolley with our buddies to different beaches.

Adventuring....Treasure hunting.....stuff boys do.

Yoga With Mom

Two posts in a week. We're on it.

Here's mom, 8.5-months pregnant and still teaching yoga. She had a woman cry the other night at her last Wednesday night class before--and for a while after--Anna comes. I think the woman was going to miss her spiritual healer.

This is mom helping the boys focus. They thought it was pretty fun....
