Happy Sporty Halloween!

This Halloween, I was all about throwing on a shirt for my costume, while making my boys look good. This is what we came up with:However I made the football outfit this summer, when I figured I'd have a tiny newborn just a few days old. Not a 9 lb. 3-weeker by Halloween! We took the outside pictures right when we came home from the hospital, and you can tell how he barely fits in the pictures from last night, the little chunk!

Birth Announcement!

The day after we brought Lincoln home, mom and I set up a little photo shoot in our living room! We made sure he was well fed and set up space heaters so he'd be cozy. Thanks for being so compliant, little one!

Its been so fun getting to know Lincoln! A little more about the little guy:

  • He always has to have his hands up by his face (in fact he came out with hand on his face, thanks kid :)
  • The poor boy gets hiccups just as much outside the womb as he did inside--atleast once a day lately. The worst is when I finally get him to sleep, then his hiccups wake him up again.
  • He loves his swing and calms down to almost any kind of music I play
  • He loves car rides and stroller rides!
  • He is the noisiest sleeper. I can't keep the bassinet in our bedroom because of his sighs and moans and grunts all night.
  • When you sit and have a conversation with him, he pulls out some great facial expressions and great big wide eyes
  • He's so loveable!! I want him to stay this small forever!

Getting to Know You

Little Lincoln sure is our pride and joy! He performs so well for visitors, is eating like a champ, and never spits up. He seemed to actually enjoy his bath yesterday, is sleeping longer every night, and we even made it to church today! He fills our house with so much happiness! I'm sure its the crazy hormones, but I find myself in tears constantly just thinking about how perfect he is and happy I am that he's here!(This is the outfit my brother Travis wore home from the hospital 22 years ago)Grandma MillarMy Hancock grandparents, who are now Great-Grandparents!

He sure loves to yawn!

Baby Lincoln

It's really happened! Baby Lincoln Clay Millar arrived today at 4:35 p.m. As you can see from the picture, he's 8 pounds 10 ounces, 20 inches long. He's a happy healthy baby boy! Lots of hair. The labor went super well. We were called in this morning at about 6:30 a.m., Camille was put on Pitocin at about 7:00, and water was broke at about 9:00. She was a superstar. She did do an epidural which worked well, but felt quite a bit of pressure at the end. After pushing for an hour and fifteen minutes, Lincoln came into this world screaming and crying with a quivering lip.I got to cut the cord, Hah!After that, he was cleaned up and weighed. Then I wheeled him down to Mother Baby, where they gave him a full on bath and gave him his first outfit. After that Lincoln and I had about a half hour of uninterrupted one on one bonding time on a rocking chair, while Camille got cleaned up and took a short nap. It was fun seeing him calm down and take his first nap in this world. We're so excited to be parents. I always thought it was so cliche how new parents talk about how spiritual the experience it was, but now that I've been through it, I feel like I had the most spiritual experience of my life today. We love you Baby Lincoln Here's some pictures and videos for enjoyment.
Grandma Hancock!

The Job Hunt

Jason's been interviewing up a storm these last two weeks! Tis the season. He's been asked to interview with every application he's submitted this semester, which is awesome! Some companies he's interviewed with include: Malaluca, Brandis, Piper Jaffray, Merrill Lynch, Duff & Phelps, etc. Please may one of these work out. And may the next big interview not be scheduled while I'm in labor. I keep telling him to stay 3 days ahead of his schoolwork and studying just in case. He's very good at answering my calls when he's on campus lately :)

38 weeks

Will this be the last maternity picture Jason has to take? Will the next post be introducing our newest family member? Who knows! We certainly don't. We were almost sure he was coming Saturday night because my contractions were about a minute long and 2-3 min. apart for several hours. So we grabbed our bags and headed to the hospital. Alas, I was only 2, so they gave me a shot of morphine and sent us home. Lame. The contractions were killing me, but apparently I need to wait until they are REALLY killing me to come in again. My doctor says if I'm a 3 by Friday, she'll induce me on Monday! If not, she's leaving town till the 19th, and we're on our own. So stay tuned until Friday! However, I did have this vivid dream that he was born this Thursday...

Vintage Photo Contest

So humor me, here :) I just stumbled across this "Tulle Vintage Photo Contest" going on on Facebook--any photo wearing a vintage 'look', and thank goodness I didn't have to be the photographer, because these are, of course, courtesy of my sister in law, Kati, and I could never replicate her work!

If you have a Facebook account, would you mind voting for me?! As of this second, I have the most number of votes and the first place prize is $300!

You can vote 2x/day through Oct. 18th here: and clicking on "contests". Thanks all :)
