New Gadget

It was time that I purchased a Flip!! I am SOOOO BAD about bringing my big camera along with me and the only other thing I have is my iPhone....of course, the picture and video quality are SOOOOO BAD! My kids are funny, entertaining and sometimes a bit dramatic so I wanted to make sure all my peeps weren't missing out on the Rosenbaum kids in action! :) Oh, and of course, I am excited about taping Finley's first days!!!

Here is a tester video....First Flip video! I cannot wait to use this little thing!!

Happy Valentines Day!!


So, I decided to make my own cards since the other ones you get at the store are kinda corny in my opinion. What do you think????

Visit to Labor and Delivery

WHAT A DAY!!!

So last night (Feb. 3rd) I was feeling this crazy cramping going on. I could not control it....bath, water, stretches....you name it. I went to bed and thought nothing of it. Around 6:30AM I woke up in pain. Not crazy contraction pain but this menstrual-like pain that wrapped around to my back. I got up, had a bowl of Raisin Bran and then fell asleep on the couch.

We all slept in until 9:15AM!! It was heaven except for the lingering pains I was having so we headed over to Memorial Hermann. Poor Allen had to watch the kids and whatnot in the waiting room. Nurses would ask over and over "is someone with you??"...I felt pretty teen-mom-ish so I called Allen in the kids back with me so I could justify my pregnancy! ha!

They did a stress test and of course it was showing mild contractions. I had to drink tons of water and lay there for about 3 hours. NOT FUN! The kids did great and just sat there. Reese would not look at me, touch me, acknowledge me...it was so weird and I guess he is giving us a glimpse of what is to come in 5-6 weeks (hopefully). The noises, the machines, the cords freaked.him.out!!!

Finley looked great, moved great, heart was great!!! As far as I was concerned I could have "peaced out" then since that is all I really cared about! But, NO...more observations. :(

Long story short, I am having "uterine irritations". What the heck is that?? I mean, I have "mommy irritations" everyday but I cannot just press timeout and take a bedrest from life. But, apparently with uterine irritations everything has to be PAUSED until it settles. Furthermore, I am on locked down for the weekend. Temporary bedrest. Boredom. Anxiousness. Bedrest. We will call Monday and see what Dr. Westmoreland wants me to do. I am sure she will say, "you may now get back to your crazy life of photo-shoots, two kids, gymnastics and activities 3 days a week, cleaning, laundry and cooking"...HA! Looks like from here on out I have GOT to take care of myself.

Keep you posted, friends. And pray for my "uterine irritations" as well as all my other daily irritations! :)

My funny girl

This morning I could NOT stop laughing. This might sound inappropriate and outrageous but it was the the funniest thing especially after the crazy day we had.

Ginny- (while brushing her hair and looking in the mirror) says to herself: Gosh, my balls hurt.

Me- WHAT?!?!!!!

Ginny- Mommy, I said my balls hurt.

Me- SILENCE

Ginny- You know, Mommy, the "hangy balls in your throat" You know, Mommy, when you talk they shake.

Me- I love you Ginny!

Enough said. Ginny's balls hurt, you know, the balls in your throat.

Dear Finley





I hope you want to pose just like these babies when you are born. Aren't these girls precious?!?!
