Sunday March 27th 2011

Today was Rachel's birthday party and we held it at the Little Gym. For those who do not know what the Little Gym is - It is a franchise that has a huge huge, well padded room for kids to play in. Within this room, a gym it could even be called, are balance beams, hanging rings, uneven bars, tiny basketball hoops, and all sorts of things that a little kid would enjoy to play with. We had a total of 14 kids come for the party. The kids ranged from 2-5 years old and seemed to all have a blast. These were children from Rachel's daycare and also children of co-workers. Plus some neighbors and their children were invited. Megan was awesome and did not have any real issue in the 90 minutes the party went along. Megan is doing great and has grown a full inch and weighs a pound more since she was born. There is nothing to really report, and that is a great thing. Aunt Jackie, Cousin Jenna, and Grandma Wendy also were in attendance. I am not going to talk much about Ohio State other to say that once again, they broke my heart. Here are some pictures....

Friday March 11th 2011

Lisa and Megan are home and resting. Both are doing well. Rachel is happy that the baby is here and has been an anger so far. We will see how long that lasts...

Here are pictures from both the camera (higher quality) and our iPhones. There are even a few of Rachel thrown in from last week - decked out in her Ohio State gear. She loves rooting for Ohio State and runs around the house screaming Go Hio State - Go Hio State. We also like to play the Wheres Brutus game when they are on TV. When i notice the big mascot on the screen, (usually in the stands and far from the court), i pause the TV and Rachel likes to find him. It is our version of the Where's Waldo.

Wednesday March 9th 2010


So many things....Please welcome into the world - Megan Elizabeth Sigler. She was born tonight at 7:18pm and weighed in at 7 pounds and 14 ounces. The delivery went as well as could be expected and Megan and Lisa are both recovering in the hospital.

Rachel turned 3 today..both her and Megan will share a birth date, March 9th. Exactly one week after me. So that will make it easy to remember for me...

Lisa originally had a due date of March 3rd, so Megan is a week late. Lisa had an appointment to be induced on Friday if our new friend decided to keep hiding. We were of different opinions on whether it would be a good thing for them to share a birthday or not. I feel that obviously it would be easier for the parents (obviously) and that the kids would not know any difference, so they really would not care. Lisa felt that it would make the kids feel less special because they had to share the day. In the end, it really did not matter what we thought because nature did its own thing!

While Rachel turned 3 today, she does not know it. We purposely never told her it was her birthday and because she has not yet figured out how to read a calendar, she was none the wiser. Rachel is aware that her birthday is sometime soon, but just does not know when! The reasoning behind this trick is that we are mean. That is why. Honestly, Rachel wants a birthday party and has been asking for one for months. There was a stretch late last year where it seemed like she went to 5 parties in a 3 week span (i know for a fact she had 3 in one day she went to). She had those fun times stuck in her head and keeps asking - "when my burtday pahty?" She has done this for months. And with Megans due date so close to Rachel's b-day, we did not want to risk having to cancel it. So the plan has been to have it at the end of the month. Aunt Jackie and cousin Jenna are coming for a week during spring break, so we figure to have her party then. We will invite the daycare kids and friends with children out someplace for a little party. Lisa wants something simple like Chik-Fil-A and i have heard good things about the local 'Little Gym' who hosts those kinds of things and lets kids play in a huge area.

I will post more pictures once i bring camera home from hospital. These were taken from the trusty iPhone. If i had to tell you the celebrity that she most looks like, i would have to say the kid from 'Two and half men'. And that is no compliment... Haha, i am guessing that will change.

December 28th 2010

Christmas came and went and it was a very happy holiday in our household. Rachel sat with us during Christmas eve service (instead of going to childcare) and behaved fabulously. She held the candle and holder and seemed to enjoy herself. She had a blast unwrapping all of her gifts on Christmas morning and loved every minute of it. And once Christmas was over, she forced us to take down all lights and decorations. in her head, Christmas was over, so there was no need to have a tree up or decorations. She sure is opinionated!

All three of us are doing great. We are looking forward to the new baby in March and Rachel is real excited.

Here are some pictures from Christmas.

We are having a girl! Lisa and I went to the doctor yesterday and had the latest sonogram. The doctor was confident that there were no boy parts and that Rachel is going to have a baby sister. Due date is still early March. Rachel is excited and keeps telling us that she is going to be a nice big sister. She is awful cute.
