This morning mommy took me into her office so she could go to a meeting. Auntie Lynne watched me the whole time (I slept!). Then when I woke up I met mommy's friends and started to put my fingers in my mouth for the first time - they taste good!
Mommy's girlfriends from Ohio State came to visit this weekend - they live in Texas, Boston, Chicago and Pennsylvania. We went to the park and then they made dinner and held me all day! Mommy was so excited to see them!
Today daddy had to go back to work and we missed him all day! But it was my first Halloween so I went over Aunt Kelly's house and went trick-or-treating with Trinity, Joe, Sydney and Patrick! Then, when I got home my cord fell off! Daddy was at the Steeler game so mommy called him in the middle of it with the big news!
Mommy and Daddy took me to my first mass at St. Sebastian Church today at noon! Fr. Clint had the mass and prayed for all the people that were sick and have gotten better and the new babies. Mommy was crying alot during mass, I liked the music so I slept!
WAAAAA!! I can't believe you made me come out into this cold air! I was so nice and warm inside, but wait, there are some really nice people out here that keeping looking at me & wrapping me up in nice warm blankets. And I have a hat on my head too! Ok, I guess I'll stay out here! Thanks mom and dad for a great 9 months!! Here I come world!!
from mommy -
Caileigh took her sweet time arriving into the world. After pushing for 3 hours we ended up with a c-section and out she came screaming at 10:14 p.m. We named her Caileigh (Gaelic means "slender one") Cecelia which is my wonderful mother's middle name and my patron saint! We cried when we saw her for the first time - John got to hold her while the surgeon was finishing - it was wonderful. Then I took a small detour to the recovery room & ICU while John told all of our relatives that were anxiously waiting and waiting and waiting!! Two days later (after I made it out of ICU), we were all reunited on the maternity ward & life began for the Duffy Family!!
Thanks to everyone - you'll never know how much your prayers and support meant!!
Ha Ha ! I fooled everyone - today is the day I am supposed to be born but I'm not ready to come out yet. Its nice and warm in here & I can eat whenever I want! I think I'll stay inside for a little while longer.
Well its only one month until I am supposed to make my way into the big world! Mommy had a couple showers and got all kinds of neat things for me & my room. Daddy painted my room yellow, with purple and green stripes - it looks great! Everyone is excited to meet me!
Today mommy & daddy saw me for the first time through an ultrasound test. I was sucking my thumb & squirming all around. They didn't want to find out if I was a girl or boy so it will be a big surprise. I wonder if when I'm born they'll recognize me from my first pictures?
Today my mom & dad found out that they were expecting me! Mom was really happy & daddy was a bit shocked (mom woke him out of a deep sleep to tell him!). I'm supposed to arrive on Thursday, September 29th so there's lots of time for me to grow between now & then!
