Big Belly

I had to post this cause it still amazes me how big a belly can actually grow...and then be gone within just a few days. This was in the midst of contractions, just before we headed to the hospital and a 9 1/2 hour adventure until Evangelyn (ee-van-gel-in, phonetic spelling) was born, hence the I-can't-look-in-the-camera face.

Evangelyn Patricia Kay Chong

She was born August 21, 9:06am, 7lbs 1oz
...and is the cutest baby girl, even when she's farting and pooping, spitting up milk and crying at 3 in the morning...

bamboo, bugs, and batteries

Pray for our car.

The baby's due in 5 days and yesterday our car wouldn't start. This is our new used car that we bought about a month ago so we could have a 4-door. We think and have been told that it probably just needs a new battery, which we're getting tomorrow. Let's just hope that is all it needs. At least we haven't sold our old BMW, yet. If I do go into labour, we'll have transportation. It'll just take us longer to get to the hospital since the BMW likes to stall at most stops.

I thought I'd post some pics of the baby's half-room.

She's going to share it with Chris cause it's his "closet." They don't build many houses with closets here in England and use wardrobes instead. We tried having my wardrobe and Chris's in our bedroom, but it felt like the walls were falling in on us, so he and the baby will share. We figure that a baby doesn't really need a whole room anyway. I had fun a few weeks ago finding images of bugs and bamboo to make into stencils, and we decorated the baby's crib bumper. It was quite a process, but very satisfying.

Here's a fun one...
Chris's egg turned into an egg-man this morning.
