Be Still My Heart…

1st week 071, originally uploaded by tabithasuo.

Scarlet Rayne Suo was born on Tuesday, October 9th at 2:15 am. She is already a week old. Joseph and I have been enjoying every moment with our new darling. She looks just like her Daddy. 🙂 She has my nose and my cheeks and Josephs hair and eyes. She melts my heart every time I look at her. Today I sat back and thanked God for an incredible husband and a beautiful baby girl. My life couldn’t be more complete. There are so many changes going on but being a mommy seems so natural and beautiful and I couldn’t ask for anything more.

More very soon…


Two of my Favorite Things

August 033, originally uploaded by tabithasuo.

There are two things in my kitchen that get used everyday. I have a favorite bowl and coffee mug that gets used at least twice a day. They both make me smile and I realized this morning that they both have funny stories behind them too.
My mug I bought at a pottery show when Joseph and I were engaged. Along with it, I bought a soap dish. It was the most beautiful soap dish. I admired it every time I was at the kitchen sink. Not too long after I bought it, I was in a hurry one day and it landed in a million pieces in the sink. 😦 I cried and cried and I just remember Joseph’s face… I know he was thinking, “I am about to marry this crazy girl that falls apart over a soap dish?!” So… today, I drink from my mug and remember my soap dish casualty. 😦
My bowl was thrifted one day at a yard sale for a dollar. I went up and asked the lady how much this beautiful bowl was and she replied with “25 cents.” And then her husband comes over and says, “No, a dollar.” While I’m standing there holding my bowl tightly, they are yelling and arms go flying and this turns into and all out brawl. Then I realized that they were selling their house and getting a divorce. So, in an attempt to save the bowl from further abuse, I set the dollar on the table and quickly head for my car. 🙂 A sad way to inherit a bowl, but at least she is safe.

I know I’m strange. Who blogs about their dishes? You’ll have to get used to strange blogs… there will probably be more.

Calmly (or not so calmly) Waiting…

September 26th, 2007

So… I have had this blog for almost a month and just haven’t been in the mood to write. I had started one on another site to give updates on Scarlet. But I think, if I can figure it all out, I would like this one much more. Plus, there is so much going on right now that I need to be able to just write. Shannon used to always tell me that a good writer writes something everyday… even if it’s just a letter. So this is my attempt to keep writing everyday. (Hopefully my attempts will get better since it did take me almost a month just to write this one.)

Life is exciting. Another trip to the hospital tonight. I swear I’m not crazy. I really was having contractions! Just not dilating the way I should be. It is a sad day when the people at the front desk know you by name. How embarrassing! Oh well, here I am, at midnight, still contracting but trying to ignore it. I should just put a giant pool in my empty dining room and have a baby here. But Mom would flip. 🙂

Well, even though I want to run laps right now, I am choosing to lay down and try to sleep just in case these are real contractions. Scarlet, this is your mother, come out! (Dang, I already sound like my mother. 🙂
