Mila May pictures!

Mila is doing great.  That girl can eat!  She's already started to gain weight since leaving the hospital.  As far as I can tell, she eats about as much as she sleeps and that doesn't leave much time for anything else (ahhh, the good life).  

Here's a link to pictures from the hospital and our first few days at home.  We're going to shift over to using Google web albums instead of Kodak Gallery because it's a lot easier to upload and has all the same features (including the ability to order pictures online).  Let us know if you really don't like it, but otherwise we'll stick with Google web albums.  

Thanks to everyone for all the nice notes of congratulations.  We really appreciate it!!!

Pics from a trip to Baker Beach

Baker Beach is really close to where we live now, so while it was still nice out, we spent a few hours there letting Jackson run around.  He loves to chase the dogs and watch the waves.  Every now and then, he gets a little bold and heads for the water, but I don't worry about him too much.  The second he feels how cold the Pacific is, he'll never go near it again!  Here  are a few pics from the day.

In case you're wondering

We make posts on a delay sometimes (so when Missy gets motivated to do 3 or 4 at once, we post them over the next week). So, no Missy did not start posting about power wheels shortly after giving birth!

Mila May Schneller

She has a name!

Testing out the Power Wheels

Test 1

Test 2 (Getting better)

We will continue to document his progress. . .

It's a Girl!!!

Our beautiful little daughter was born at 4:46 am this morning. 8lbs 1oz, 20.5in.

Missy and I got to the hospital at about 4:20 am and next thing you know we're sprinting through the hospital with the nurse pushing missy in the wheelchair. Very exciting, just like the movies!  There was a brief moment where I thought baby would be born in the car. Thankfully we're only 1 mile from the hospital.

Missy did absolutely great. Looks like she was never even pregnant.

Once we name her, I'll make another post.

Christmas pictures

Happy New Year!  My New Year's resolution is to post to the blog more often (riiiiiiiight).  I will do my best.

Here are our Christmas pictures from 2008.  I am writing these posts ahead of time, just in case the baby comes early- we can only hope.

Christmas was great this year.  We spent Christmas Eve and all of Christmas Day down in Los Altos.  The weather has been pretty chilly this year, so it made things even more festive.  I know those in the Midwest won't feel a bit sorry for us, but we've actually had a little frost on our roof a few times.
Jackson can say "ho ho ho", but didn't really understand the whole Santa thing.  I guess we didn't push it much either, so that's on us!  He was interested in ripping the presents open though, so that was fun to watch.

Real 39 Week Belly Pics

Old pictures

I realize that not everyone is on Facebook, so here are my pictures from Thanksgiving at the Tognetti house (and some other random ones).    My whole side of the family was there, so we had a mini-Christmas celebration.  It was so fun, as always, especially with having all 8 grandkids together under one roof.

 On another note, my due date is this Saturday.  Three words:  I AM READY.  This baby feels heavier than Jackson did at this point.  I guess it could be because it's a second pregnancy, and the muscles are a little looser, but I won't be surprised if this kid weighs more than the 8lbs 2 oz that Jackson was.  More than anything, we are just excited to find out if we've got another little boy or a little girl.  Not knowing this time has been much harder!
