2 weeks....

So it's been two weeks, and boy what an emotional rollercoaster I have been on. Trevor has, too, but his, I think, has been rather tame compared to mine.....which is good, he needs patience to deal with me. :) I don't have much to say this time, as I have not had much time to do anything besides feeding my son, changing him, and sleeping. We've had a few outings, dr. appointments, a wedding, Memorial Day party. It's good to get out. Sunday was spent on the couch, D was eating every other hour for an hour.....it was a long day. And now he is "calling" for me. :) Hopefully I will have more time later to write more, post some pictures.....he's beautiful, and you should all see that!

Declan has arrived!! We had our little boy on May 13th at 11pm. He was 7lbs 12oz, and 20in long....and we'll see if that's any different tomorrow at his first doctors appointment. We are home now and adjusting to our new life....with our son....THAT'S CRAZY!!! :) I'll write later and tell the whole birth story (don't worry, I won't be graphic.) And I'll get better pictures up too, this one was taken by my cell phone and it's before he's been properly bathed. My dad has pictures up on his blog: http://daveallansblog.blogspot.com/ Ok, gotta feed now......yeah!

Do I sit or do I stand?

Happy Mother's Day! And Happy Mother's-to-be day too! :) So at church this morning, the pastor (Randy) did his Mother's day routine and had all the mom's stand up, then the grandmas remain standing, and then the great grandmas, etc. (Yes mom, you are a great Grandma, but don't plan to have the title for AT LEAST 25 more years!) I knew this would be happening and I had debated whether I would stand or not, and I ended up not standing. I was a little sad, but it was ok, not the end of the world. However......Randy changed his routine this year. After he had the one slightly confused great-great-grandma sit down and before he continued he asked for one more group of people to stand: anyone who was expecting to be a mother any mintue now. I was the only one to stand. I felt so special.....and embarrassed, but special! It was really fun!

For those of you who haven't been able to see, here's what I currently look like:

This was last Wednesday, at 40 weeks exactly.....let's hope it's the last weekly picture. I've had a few Pregnancy photo-shoots, too, so I'll post those when I narrow them down. Ok, again, let's hope this is the last pre-baby blog! I may not have the best attitude if I write again! :)

Due date?

Just wanted to let everyone know......I'm still pregnant! Yup, due date, schmoo date! I think I'm officially ready to be ready. I mean, to have the baby. My curiousity is getting the better of me and I REALLY want to know what this baby is already!!! Goodness. Ok, that's all I have to say today, just want to be done now. And yes I know that due dates are approximate, but they just kind of pumped me up that I would be early, and I never really thought I would make it to my due date, much less past it! But that's ok. When he/she is ready, then he/she will come. Right. So.......I'll keep waiting....I guess.

What have we gotten me into?

I said this to Trevor a couple of appointments ago. We both thought it was funny.....because it's true. I'm about to give birth to our first child and that is just crazy. In fact, that's what this whole blog is about: Our baby, and pretty much our lives with our baby. We are due in 2 days. I was actually hoping we would deliver today...which I guess could still happen....miraculously. :) But I've pretty much accepted that it won't, and really I'm ok with that. Just as long as it's not much longer. I am DYING to know what our baby is: boy or girl? Declan or Abigail? I guess we'll find out soon......right?

So, anyway, for those of you who want updates, and I am poor at giving them, hopefully this blog will satisfy you! I guess it's still up to me to write and post. I have the next 6 weeks off, so there should be plenty of time to.....oh wait, I'll have a baby to take care of. Well......wish me luck!
