"why aren't more women making the decision to just say no"

Pregnancy in America
i LOVE this video.

^ click on the video then click play twice (i know it looks like an ad might come up- it won't).

The Mayo Clinic "what to expect during a c-section"


Video: What to expect during a C-section @ Yahoo! Video

^you can just watch it here.

Why would someone CHOOSE a c-section? It worries me when people want to schedule their children's births. Are they going to be able to schedule falls, scrapes, and broken bones too?

(Notice: the baby in the c-section has to go right from mommy, into a freezing cold room (colder than 'normal hospital air'), and plopped on a cloth covered, most-likely metal table. Once the baby is stabalized- it can be snuggly wrapped and shown to mom before getting wisked off to the nursery and mom to recovery. What's wrong with this picture?

They are right about one thing: this is what you should expect)

happy anniversary

June 3rd, Brian and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary! On Weds we just echanged gifts and had dinner together (Brian was gone until about 8:30pm at class). We do the 'traditional' anniverary gifts and year 3 is LEATHER.

Brian got me coasters that he stamped with all our names...



I bought Brian a picture frame and bought leather. I glued (carefully!) the leather to the frame. It came out GREAT!!! You can't even tell I made it!!


We took a mini-vacation to Buffalo, NY and had a BLAST. There is a link below for the pictures because there are WAYYY too many to post here.

crayon rolls for sale

SO.... I have enough fabric to make 5 crayon rolls with the fabric that I made mine with. (4 are all ready to go) If you want one, I'll sell it to you for $7 (this includes shipping). =D I'll take paypal unless you live close enough for me to hand it to you!

These sell on etsy for $7-10 plus shipping.

It can hold 16 large or regular crayons- or even 32 small crayons (I know that's a weird number but you could put 2 regular size crayons per pocket)

I am NOT a professional sewer, but I think they turned out cute. If you are not happy, you can return it for a full refund.

It is first come, first serve- so if you want some-- lemme know!!

Interested??? Email me: hcsteffen@gmail.com

I had someone ask if you only put one regular crayon per pocket if the crayon will fall out. So, I took this little video so you all could see. It was a great question!!

Parker and Mommy had a fun day while Daddy stayed home with Carter last Saturday. It took Parker a minute to get 'warmed up'- he was overwhelmed by all the people and didn't quite understand what to do. Once he got into it- he didn't want to leave!!

He's getting SO BIG!
