Our Darling Little Elliot

Our Darling Little Elliot

Where the Roas began

The Roa Legend began in 1999 when we met in an undergraduate math class. We were math rivals taking algebra to a level no one imagined. Through each equation, word problem, and mathematical graph we became the greatest of friends. Through the years of growing up we learned more about love and life and realized that there was no one else for each other than.... well... each other. The rest is history and now we live life blessed with each other and a new little adventure almost here with us... little Elliot Graham.

This is the beginning

Well The Roas are finally joining the blogging world. Brittany Schmidt has finally got us going on this and we can finally communicate with the world about what is going on in our lives. It is a fine Superbowl Sunday. The men are yelling at the TV, food and snacks are slowly dwindling and we are enjoying the laziness of the day.
Anthony and I have had a pretty busy weekend.
Friday was a whirlwind day with a visit to the doctor and Elliot getting a little too excited about meeting the world. He is going to stay put for now, which is good because he still has a solid 3 weeks till his due date.
Saturday was busy busy! We had a wonderful baby shower at yummy Olive Garden with some wonderful women who spoiled me rotten. Anthony enjoyed a male bonding golf day with Timothy and Tyler and walked his cute little tail off. After our separate adventures we all met up for a rendezvous at IKEA to buy Jehanne's sofa bed!!! YAY... Lisa, Tyler, Tim, Brit, Macy, Ant and I tucked into some yummy swedish meatballs, hotdogs, cinnamon rolls, and icecream! Yup... all of it! Ant and Tim spent the evening assembling the MANSTAD sofa with the directions that were very international (no words, only pointing!) - very funny! And if this all was not enough, we watched the basket ball game (Blazers vs. Jazz - we won!!!).

So busy Saturday, deserves a lazy Sunday!
After a visit to the hospital today to find out how our little man is doing we came home and vegged!
Elliot is just fine. Strong and healthy and I guess just a little excited about being in the world but not ready and primed just yet. Hold on little guy!!!!

So enjoy the Superbowl everyone!
