Wow! I am due to have a baby in a little over five weeks!
I had a wonderful baby shower today, thrown my dear friend Betsy and wonderful boss, Laura. I feel so blessed that God has sent me friends like these here in Houston. I haven’t lived here full-time for even a year yet, so He’s been hard at work helping me make a group of truly amazing friends here.
I must say that my husband is going to be super-excited about the Chicco travel system (infant carrier, infant car seat, and stroller all-in-one) that his coworkers at NASA got for us. He might be a little disappointed that the room full of female NASA engineers already put it together for us, though. 🙂
Now for the special news:
I am so proud and happy to announce that Michael was recently hired by Booz Allen Hamilton to work as a business and technical consultant on NASA’s Constellation program. Michael has known for a while that working as a flight controller for the International Space Station was not the job for him, and we are both so excited to have this opportunity to have him still work with the space program, but in a different capacity.
The best part? Among other things, we don’t have to move! AND Booz Allen Hamilton gives daddies two paid weeks off when they have a new baby in the family–how incredible is that? 🙂
Blessings are raining down this holiday season! 🙂 Onward toward Baby Franco’s birth day, parenthood, the enriching of my marriage and family vocation, and a future Diaper Diva certification…

Erin, Its Morgan Boudreaux. I so enjoy reading your blog. It is such an inspiration. You always have wonderfully inspiration pick-me-ups!!
Adam and I had that travel system for Cohen and you will LOVE it! He is 17 months and we still use the stroller, its such a smooth ride. At first, its all so cumbersome and then one day– its just so easy to use/operate! Best of luck on baby Franco!
