Nursery News

As you know, the reason we moved into our new home is so that our rookie would have an appropriate training area. While very little has been obtained for our nursery as of yet, we do have some early pictures to show you. My mother brought over a structure that we will be using as a dresser (as soon as we purchase a few more "drawers"), and it has been set up and looks great. It's a nice start (although it may be painted once we have more furniture and I decide that it clashes...).

I also have a bonus picture of our house, for those of you who haven't been able to stop by and visit yet!

Team McPherson Product Endorsment #2

Well hello there all of you fantastic fans. We at Team McPherson headquarters wish you all the best. We have had great support from everyone over the last few months. Things have settled down in our schedules and we are hunkering down in our new home to have a great winter.

The Team McPherson marketing department is excited to announce that we have signed another fabulous product to our team. As shown above our pregnant team captain has been working hard at hunting down the best dessert to represent our team. The winner has been found and we are officially endorsing chunky ice cream. Many specific flavors have qualified to make the approved list. The best selection of chunky ice cream seems to be mint chip. Any way I hope you are all doing well. Eat some chunky ice cream and be happy.

The vice president of player personnel would like to announce that as of this week our new female star is ten inches in length and almost a pound.

A Night at the Opera

In our efforts to expose our little fetus to all sorts of cultural events, I went to see the Phantom of the Opera today with my mom and grandma. My grandma and I went to the opera a few years ago to see Don Giovanni and I LOVED it (much to Kyle's dislike - I would never ask him to take me to the opera, but now I think he's nervous that I might!). Luckily for him, I wasn't as taken with the Phantom as I was with Don Giovanni. No word yet on how the rookie felt about the experience, but I think we were both pretty cold since we sat in the back row near the air conditioner.

Something I do like though, as many of you know, is knitting. Now that we know we're expecting a girl, knitting is a lot more fun! I will wait to show pictures on this blog of my knit projects until there is a baby inside of them (although if you're dying to know, you can check out my knitting blog). Just know that this is the beginning of the knitting era, which will hopefully last another 5 months or so...

We received an early Christmas present for our PR department, so look for more frequent, better-quality photographs (including the one above of my mom and grandma before the opera)!

Team McPherson Product Endorsement #1

Okay so Team McPherson Advertising Department has announced the first ever official product of this years pregnancy.  The team captain has developed a strong relationship with Pita Pit.
Yes the fantastic Pita chain has hooked up with your favorite team to bring you this fantastic partnership. Maleah has a special deal with Pita Pit to pitch their tuna pita with extra honey mustard. This is her obsession as of late. On a side note I love the turkey pita. Anyway along with bubble tea Pita Pit is all Team McPherson is eating these days. Take care all of you fantastic fans and have a Pita for me. 

Also the PR department has released a bonus pic of the team captain. Enjoy.

The First Training Book

Hello all of you wonderful Team McPherson fans. The Team Captain and I decided to share an updated picture with you all. As you can see she is looking much more pregnant. As the president of player development I decided that it was time to purchase our first training manual for our little princess. We went to the team research archive (Barnes and Noble in Northgate) and spent a few teary and laugh filled hours looking for the perfect book. The final choice was made by the Team Captain of course.
The Training process began right away. Some training staffs might wait until she actually joined us. Fear not - our team trainers have been relentless in their in utero repetitions with this breakthrough training book. Our trainers assure us that with this training, our rookie will go to sleep more easily when read this book out of utero. Our team captain will be keeping a chart to verify the accuracy of this claim.
Anyway we're doing good. Maleah is less tired and more moody and Kyle is happy no matter what happens. We love life and all of the unpredictable moments of pregnant life.

Thank you all for your support.

Maternity Clothes

As Kyle mentioned, we did find out that our baby is healthy and is a girl! Things are looking up. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for my wardrobe. I am officially in maternity clothing now. Apparently things have come a long way in the past few decades, but it's still hard finding inexpensive maternity clothes for a woman of my stature (aka short)! I should expect this, though, because it's a truth when I fit into regular clothes as well. I'm hoping that it doesn't get too cold this winter, since a coat for one winter seems like such a waste. I was lucky enough to find a skirt and pants at a consignment store that fit me, and I also found some jeans that are only a touch too long (which is actually an accomplishment, sadly). My mom ordered some more clothes online for me, so hopefully they will arrive soon, and I will have at least 4 outfits to wear!

Luckily, I can still fit into pre-maternity tops for now, though, so hopefully I can milk that for as long as possible!

Healthy and Ready to Shop

Thank you all for checking in on Team McPherson. The team's leadership is really having a great day. Earlier today we had an extra doctor appointment to double check some previous test results that had us a little concerned. After the long weekend of worrying the Team Captain was in need of some positive news from the new team specialist. This morning's meetings with the doctor gave us the positive news we were hoping for. It looks like the young new rookie is right on track as far as becoming the sensational team star that you are all excited for next year. During the check up we received some exciting and unexpected news. So the Team McPherson public relations department has asked us to officially announce that we are going to be signing a long term contract with a healthy and beautiful little girl.

Everyone that was excited for a girl: congratulations! Those of you hoping for a boy: the Team McPherson administrators encourage you to jump on board and throw your support to our new little girl. The PR department has also released the newest set of pictures. As you can see our little girl is going to be an impressive kicker. Look at that little leg and arm go.
The team leadership has settled on a name for this young lady. We will not be releasing this information until she joins us. We have been authorized to tell you what the leading boy name was at the time of this last check up. If she had been a boy he would have been named Holden Thomas McPherson. Thank you all for your support and keep on keepin' on.

It's Official: Part Deux

Today we had our second check up with the team doctor.  She gave us a new official date to expect our rookie: February 24, 2009 will be the long awaited first at bat.  Mark this on your calendars fans, as there is a 1 in 20 chance that our rookie will actually join us on that day!  Our doctor also reassured us that we're on track and all of our preliminary test results are looking fine. The team captain is healthy and growing at an appropriate rate.  We had the pleasure of hearing the future star's strong heartbeat which was also reassuring.  The PR department would like to remind you that the rookie's gender will be announced on September 25th so that you can start buying gender-appropriate onesies. Team Mcpherson will of course appreciate all items that promote our fellow local sports franchises. Seriously though thank you for all of your support. The team photographer has been on vacation but we will replace him and get you some new and improved images of all the wacky happenings here at team headquarters.

That's all for now folks.  Stay tuned for more photos and updates coming soon.

Team Captain Maleah
