Anna Catherine Update 05/18/2014

Hey ya’ll just a quick update to let you know I’m 4 lbs 14.6 oz.   I am also getting taller, measuring in at 15.75 inches.

I am so happy to be almost 5 pounds.  Mommy cant believe how much I have grown from my birth weight of 1 lbs 4 oz.   All this growing should soon accelerate because I am now up to full feeds for the first time ever.  10 days ago I had a successful surgery so now I’m getting fed solely by milk… so bye-bye lipids (fat) and by-by TPN (nutrients).  

Also yesterday I noticed the rain-forest mobile grandma bought me.  I love watching the the pretty birds fly around before falling asleep.

Update

You can see all of my progress reports and photos on my dedicated webpage.   If you want to send me a message you can email my mommy at ThibodeauxMom@live.com and she will relay your message to me when I wake up from my nap.

Stay cute America,

Love,
Anna Catherine

New House Photos 05-07-2014

Our new house construction on Lanes End is well underway.  This week the antique wood beams were installed, exterior doors stained,  and the outdoor fireplace is coming along.  Next week should begin installation of insulation, sheetrock, and we should finish up the last few sections of exterior brick.

Below are the latest photos:


Stained Doors

First up we see the newly stained french doors. Danyale wanted a dark stain, I really like what she chose. I can’t wait to see the front of the house once the brick is installed and painted, and the color coat is applied to the stucco arches.
 


Under Soffit Details

Next up we see the penetrations for the soffit mounted architectural lighting, and soffit mounted electrical receptacle. Anthony is placing architectural lighting at key exterior locations. Also, we planned to have several hidden receptacles for holiday lighting.
 


Ceiling Boards

Here we see a stack of old cypress boards that will be used for the patio and outdoor living room ceiling.
 


Exposed Beams

Next we see two of the exposed antique pine beams delineating the kitchen, dining room, and living room.
 


Outdoor Fireplace

Here is our poor old outdoor fireplace. Its been redone so many times, nuances between the plans and real life caused some rework, but Anthony found a solution and its moving in the right direction. Soon it will be bricked in. I can’t wait to see the finished product, this outdoor space may be my favorite part of the house.
 


Back Door to Bar

This photo shows the back door leading to the bar and kitchen. Danyale planned to paint these doors, but they have been stained. We all think they look good, so we will leave them stained.
 


New House

Finally, we see the front of the house again. This time the doors are stained, second floor stucco has its color coat, the first floor arches have their architectural details added, and scratch coat installed. We are awaiting brick installation under the porch, and color coat on the first floor stucco.

Happy Mother’s Day – Part 1

Happy Mother’s Day everyone, I hope each of you have a wonderful day.

Isn’t it amazing how one little person can change your whole world.  I’ve been looking through photos and thinking about how well Danyale has adapted to being a Mother.  I’ve watched her over the years care for her nieces and cousins with amazing thoughtfulness and compassion.  I had no doubt she would be a good mom when her time came, but it’s truly amazing to witness how one little person has transformed my wife… forever.

Years ago I joked with Danyale about how I wished she would grow up and became a responsible mother; waking up earlier, fixing breakfast, planning her day, being responsible, being less random, less sporadic. Well that day has come and it’s a beautiful thing.

Speaking of beautiful, in celebration of Mother’s day, I’ve put together a 5 part photo series photos showing Danyale in action.  Each day between Sunday and Thursday, four – never seen before photos will be released.  I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do.

My Thoughts On Broccoli

Lately I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about my favorite things.  I’m so little right now, I haven’t had the opportunity to get to know all the typical favorites things in the world.  My Mommy is my favorite person and Fuzzy Lamb is my favorite friend, but that is as far as I’ve gotten.  What’s my favorite color?  What’s my favorite toy?  What’s my favorite song?  By the time I’m bigger I’ll need to have all these things picked out.  Its overwhelming.

So I’m trying to use my time wisely and start choosing some favorite things while I’m hanging out in the NICU.  My favorite person and favorite friend were easy.  The next logical favorite to choose is my favorite food.  All they give me is milk right now, and that ok… but its hardly favorite material.  If I understand things correctly, one day Mommy is gonna loosen up, when she’s ready she’ll give me the good stuff like strawberries, cotton candy, and dipped ice-cream cones.  How is a baby supposed to choose?  There are so many foods out there like Pizza, Watermelon, and Mongolian beef.  Apple Jacks, McDonald’s, and Butter Cream Frosting.  Snow-cones, Broccoli, and Chick-a-lay.

Wait a minute… whats Broccoli doing on this list.  Is broccoli really anyone’s favorite.  I know daddy likes broccoli… but does he loovvve it?  Who loves broccoli?  Broccoli is so bad, it gives me the shivers.  Just thinking about it causes me to completely loose control of my face.  My face goes from this:

2014-04-26 19.49.32_compress-doc

to this:

2014-04-26 19.49.29_compress-doc

So anyway, ruling out broccoli gets me one step closer to choosing my favorite food.  Before you know it I’ll be bigger and I’ll need to have all these favorites picked out.  Let me know what your favorite food is.  You can email my mommy at ThibodeauxMom@live.com and she will relay your message to me when I wake up from my nap.

Stay cute America!

Love,
Anna Catherine
