Alive and Well....

It has been almost 8 months since my last post and I apologize. Life has been very busy for us, especially with 2 kids now! Every one is doing wonderful and getting big. Savannah will be 8 months old on the 11th and she is an absolute joy!! She is a very happy, very active little girl! Logan takes his role as a big brother pretty seriously, although the jealous aspect is starting to kick in. Now that she is mobile, she invades "his" territory and he's not a big fan of that!! I promise to start posting more frequently! This picture was taken at Savannah's baby dedication last month!! I love our little family!!

Tomorrow is the Big Day!

We are being induced tomorrow morning to have this baby girl!! So many different emotions are running through me at this time....happy, sad, excited, nervous, scared!! Please pray for a safe delivery and no complications and a smooth transition for us all, especially Logan!! We look forward to sharing the details about her and how life goes as a family of 4!!!

11 days to go.....

I am 11 days from my due date and I am so ready to have her!! I had Logan 11 days early, so if I don't go into labor and have her before 4:48 tonight (which is highly unlikely at this point in the day), I will have carried her longer than Logan. How much longer is anyone's guess!?!? I am so uncomfortable at night so sleep comes and goes. As of my last doctor's appointment (1/27), I was 2 centimeters, 50% effaced. I go back Wednesday morning, so hopefully I have made some more progress!!!

The good news is I have absolutely everything crossed off my checklist. I finished everything last night, which entailed a trip to the grocery store. You should have seen the looks I got from people. Here was a 38 week pregnant woman at the grocery store at 9:30 at night, pushing 2 carts full of groceries out to my car ALL BY MYSELF. It definitely wore me out, but we have so much food in the house now I am hoping to avoid the store for a while (except for milk, fruit, etc.).

Logan is very anxious for the baby to get here too. He likes to push on my belly and say, "out, baby, out." He's probably ready for me to not be so tired more than he's ready to share the limelight with his sister!! :)

Well, my bag is packed, the car seat installed, and a plan of action in place.....now we patiently wait for her to decide when she would like her birthday to be!! If you think about, please say a quick prayer for a safe delivery, a fast recovery, and a smooth transition for all of us (especially Logan)!!

Logan's Version of Singing

Playing Catch Up

It's been over a month since I've last blogged...OOPS!! We were just so busy with the holidays and getting everything ready for the baby's arrival. Things have been going good for us! Logan has been very happy and healthy this winter. He is still loving school and his speech has improved so much over the last few months. Glen was able to go skiing out in Colorado at the beginning of January with a college buddy and he very much enjoyed doing that! I am less than 3 weeks away from my due date, so it's been crunch time around the house. I'm trying to get everything done, cleaned, organized and put away before she arrives. We are all doing very well and eagerly anticipating the her arrival!!

He thought it was funny to carry around my purse, however, Daddy didn't think so!

Baby Shower

Jeni, a good friend of mine, threw a GIRLIE baby shower for me. It was so much fun and I really appreciate all the hard work she put into it!! I got SO MANY cute clothes. I can't wait for her to get here, so I can start dressing her in them!!! She made up Citrus Fruit Preggatini's, which were delicious; yummy food and a delicious cake!! It was a great time being with my family and friends and I love having all their support and friendships, especially as we begin the adventure of 2 children!! I love you all!!!
