Happy New Year!

We are spending the day at my parents. We are going to have a big New Years dinner of Prime Rib and Crab Legs in a bit…and then Ryan and I and my sister are going to head out to the bar! This will be the first time that I have had a cocktail in over 9 months…kinda makes me nervous!

We had Blake’s 2 week appointment yesterday. The dr. said that she couldn’t be happier! He is a perfectly healthy little boy. He weighed 7 lbs. 1 and ¾ oz. So he is gaining weight at a very quick rate…which is good news. He is a very good eater, and is still eating about 3 oz. every 3 hours. We took a couple of pictures of him at the dr. that I will post later.

Last night he was up more than normal…he was awake from about 2 to 4...but his dad stayed up with him so I could get some sleep. :o) …hopefully he is a little better tonight since my parents will be watching him!…somehow I doubt that though, since he has been sleeping all day! OH WELL…

Such a good boy…

We had a pretty busy day today, and Blake was such a good little boy! He had a bath, went out to lunch, and went over to Bay City to see Heather…he is such a good little traveler.

He sat in his car seat all though lunch and never made a peep! Then my sister, mother, and I (and Blake) drove to Heather’s and he slept the whole way (about a 1 hour trip). He woke up for a bit while we were visiting…and then went back to sleep for the ride home. Heather is looking super cute wither her little belly, but she is still on bed rest :o(

He is loving his swing...but he has to lay in it sideways, because he is too little to sit in it like he should be sitting…it is so cute.

My how time flies...

Had to believe that little Blake is over two weeks old already! Christmas has come and gone…time is just going so fast.

The holidays were busy. We spent time at Ryan’s parents and mine as well. Mary has been here for over a week. Erica left to head back to Nashville today…I feel like we have had so much company and been gone so much that I haven’t had enough time with anyone!

Blake is still eating every three hours and pretty much sleeping the whole time in between. He is awake a little more each day.

Last night he was pretty cranky…today he has cried more than normal…but overall he is still the perfect little baby. We are SO lucky.

Tomorrow we are heading to Bay City to visit Heather. That will be our longest trip from home thus far. Tuesday Blake has another doctor appointment. I am anxious to see how much weight he has gained! I feel like he is really filling out in the face and arms and legs.

Grandma, Blake, and I in front of the tree...

Me and my baby...

Sunday night at home...

We have had a busy weekend! Friday night Mary got home...Saturday we went to my parents house for the day. Erica and Thomas came over as well as Tony. Saturday night my parents had their Christmas party. Everyone thinks Blake is the cutest! He was so good and barely made a peep at the party.

We spent the night at my parents, so it was nice to get home today. The roads were TERRIBLE coming home...we are supposed to get ANOTHER 12 inches of snow by Tuesday.

Kellianne and Shoey came over to see Blake today, as well as Mary Lu. Tomorrow we are heading out to a Christmas Party at my dad's shop! Hopefully the roads are clear by then.

Getting bundled up to head out in the snow!!

All cozy and warm inside...

6 days old...

Last night was our first night just the three of us. My mom has been staying since we got home, but Blake is so easy to get along with that we figured that we could do it on our own. He only woke up twice and barely made a peep. He is just perfect!

Mary is on her way from Detroit right now...I was worried that she wouldnt be able to fly in because of the snow. We have got about 12 inches today! I just cant wait for her to see him. She is going to melt.

Erica will be here to see him for the first time tomorrow...

I feel like he changes so much every day and I just want him to stay the way he is now. I think that he is so perfect...but I am sure that I will think that at any size...

My smiling boys...

Looking good in green...

He's Here!!

He's finally here and we couldn’t be happier! He is just perfect and we love him SO much already. It’s amazing how much you can love someone that you JUST met.

Blake William
6 lbs. 3 oz.
18 3/4 inches long
born 12/13/08 at 6:39 p.m.

We got home from the hospital on Monday and have been here for three nights now. Blake is just a job to be with. Such a good baby. He is sleeping and eating great and barely makes a peep.

He is very loveable, and lets anyone hold him. We have had lots of visitors and everyone agrees that he is just perfect!

I could just stare at him all day long. Daddy has had exams this week, so it has been hard for him to leave him! Today is his last one...thank goodness. Tomorrow he goes back to work full time, so that will be tough as well.

Aunt Mary is coming home tomorrow. She is going to melt when he meets him! We can’t wait to see her!

JUST after birth...SO happy!

Mother doesnt look so great...but baby is just precious

Baby Blake..just after birth...moments old.

Last night of just the two of us….

It is so crazy to think that we will go to the hospital tomorrow just the two of us…and that when we come home we will have a baby! We are SO happy and excited to be starting our own family.

I worked all day today, and have felt fine. Ryan has called about every hour on the hour to make sure that I am ok. He is starting to get nervous! I am more excited than nervous, so that’s a good thing!

Both of our families will be at the hospital all day tomorrow. It will be a FULL waiting room, that’s for sure.

I am trying to think about any loose ends that I need to tie up both at home and work, but I think that everything is all set!

Soon I will have some exciting pictures to post :o). Keep your fingers crossed for a fast and easy delivery tomorrow!

One last look at me….

This is the last that you will see of me pregnant. Looks like I am about ready to pop…luckily I am! This is me last night at 38 weeks and 2 days preggers. I cant wait to get into some of my old clothes!

I feel good today. I was really hoping that I would go into labor last night, but nothing…except for a lot of cramps!

Maybe tonight is the night! If not, oh well…but I would prefer to go naturally rather than be induced on Saturday morning.

Wednesday, December 10, 2008

Now we're getting somewhere!!

Had another appointment today. The Dr. 'stripped my membranes'...sounds sick, but that should get the ball rolling! It sure did hurt, so hopefully it was worth it...haha.

IF I haven’t gone into labor by Saturday morning, she is going to induce me! YAY. That news was music to my ears!!

So we will be having a little baby boy by Saturday evening at the latest. I am SO happy and relieved. I just cat wait for him to get here. I am also happy that his birthday will be a little before Christmas...I was worried about that!

Here is a picture from Anne's birthday dinner on Monday night. She is on her way to Vegas right now…lucky duck!

Also...I took some pictures of our snow storm...obviously these are from the comfort from my warm house...looking out at it! It is so beautiful...

Monday, December 8, 2008

We’ve got NOTHING!!

I was hoping that we would have some excitement this past weekend, but we’ve got nothing! I guess baby is just fine hanging out in there for a bit longer. His mother on the other hand is ready for him to come out!! Oh well…

I am actually feeling fine, and sleeping better than I did for awhile last week, so I guess that’s good news…but I feel like it is bad news :o)

We had a pretty relaxing weekend. Ryan and I went out to dinner with Tony on Friday night. Saturday we went over to the Sanders to hang out and have dinner. On Sunday we went to brunch with my mom and dad at the Soaring Eagle Inn and Conf Center, it was exciting to check out the room that we will have our reception in next September. It made everything feel real! I can’t wait. I really haven’t done ANY wedding planning. I figure that I will wait until after the first of the year when the holidays are over and I am home on maternity leave.

Speaking of maternity leave, only 9 more work days before my break! Whoa, that is crazy.

I am heading to dinner tonight for Carson’s birthday. Should be fun!

Doctors Update

Just came from an appointment this afternoon. The Doctor checked me out and I am almost dilated to 2 and 80% effaced! I don’t really think that that means much, but better than nothing. She said that it could be any day now…or it could still be two weeks. That didn’t narrow it down too much. I am hoping to go next weekend! Cross your fingers for me :o)

I talked to a couple of girls in my office and one said that I am farther along than she EVER got before she went into labor and gave birth. Another said that the farther I progress now, the easier the labor will be, so that is good news!

I go back again for another check-up next Wednesday. Hopefully I progress more before then.

Taking care of my little sick one…

Ryan is has to be bad, because he actually went to the Dr. today. He is usually pretty stubborn about going to the Dr., so I know that he must have been feeling pretty bad. He got a prescription for an antibiotic, so hopefully he is feeling better soon!...I am just crossing my fingers that I don’t catch what he has, but so far, I feel fine (knock on wood).

I am excited about MY Dr. appointment tomorrow afternoon. I am hoping that something is happening inside there and the baby is making his way out :o)…maybe that is just wishful thinking though. Hopefully I will have some BIG news to post tomorrow!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

Most of the Christmas Decorations are up! The house looks cute. We even decorated the front porch with garland and lights. I will have to get a picture of that at night!

The tree looks great. Now I just need to do some shopping and get some gifts underneath it!

I had a rough day yesterday. My blood pressure was sky high again. Nothing I can do about that though, other than relax. I have a VERY hard time relaxing. Laying around just makes me more anxious about all of the things that I SHOULD be doing. I feel much better today…so I guess we are just taking it one day at a time now!

Less than a month….

WELL…we are in the “due date month”….part of me feels like this has taken forever, and the other part feels like we just found out. Hard to believe that it is just a matter of days now. Ryan and I are so excited for the big day…that I am sure the days leading up to it will be long!

We have been preparing everything for his arrival. Laundry is much more fun when it is miniature :o)…I am sure that I will eat my words about that in a few months!

This is the cute little bouncy chair that Katie and Kelly got him! So cute…I am sure that he will LOVE it.

Winter Storm Warning

DECEMBER is here...and look what happens!!

Isabella County (Michigan)
413 AM EST MON DEC 1 2008



413 AM EST MON DEC 1 2008

Ryan still left and drove over to BR this morning. His phone is dead, so that makes me nervous! Hopefully he goes nice and slow! I made it in to work, but almost got stuck in my driveway :)

Work week is coming to an end!!

I know that I only had to work three days this week, but it sure did seem like a long week anyway! I am ready for a break. I haven’t been feeling very good, so I am sure that doesn’t help.

We DO have a busy schedule for Thanksgiving though. We are doing dinner at Ryan’s grandparents first tomorrow and then again with my family. On Saturday we have Christmas with his other side of the family. I think that he plans on hunting on Friday, so I will probably go shopping or something with mother. Hard to believe that the holidays are really here already!...and that when we come back to work next week it will be December!

I have three more weeks of the class that I am taking. This weekend I have a paper due and I have to take a test. When this class is over I will be so grateful, because I will only have one more left (and then my paper of course). It has been a long time coming, but I will be so glad to finally be done and to graduate! I am glad that I stuck with it…it could have been really easy to quit MANY times.

After today I only have 15 more scheduled days of work before the holiday break/maternity leave. I keep thinking about ALL of the things that need to get done, but I need to realize that they will all get done regardless and everything will be just fine! I am trying to be as organized as possible and to leave detailed notes for the intern taking my place, but there are just SO many things to remember…so that is making me nervous!

Let it snow….

It has been snowing all day…and I love it! The forecast is calling for snow through the night..and we already have a good covering on the ground. We didnt get to the Christmas Tree this weekend, and now I REALLY want to!

What I DON’T love is the baby kicking at my ribs every second of the day!! It is getting REALLY uncomfortable. I am having trouble sleeping at night because I just cannot get comfortable. I guess that is to be expected though when you are 28 days from your due date! I really can't complain, because I have had a pretty easy pregancy, but I have a feeling that these final weeks are going to be rough.

The appointment went well on Friday. No real big news, besides everything looks fine, and it is just a matter of time now! We talked about the birth plan and whatnot, so it’s getting close!!

Hooray for the three day work week this week! One down, two to go!

Thursday, November 20, 2008

Thanksgiving is in one week…oh my!

Where is the time going? Hard for me to believe that Thanksgiving is SO soon. Although, it has been snowing here all day, so it is starting to look like winter.

I am SO looking forward to my Dr. Appt. tomorrow morning. It’s funny how you HATE to go to the doctor’s office, but then when you become pregnant it is SO exciting to go :o). She is doing some tests, so hopefully she can see how I am progressing and if it looks like I am going to make it until my due date or not. My BP has been stable, so that is good, BUT I am getting quite uncomfortable. I can feel contractions quite often, but they are not regular…so no need to be alarmed (I don’t think anyway).

We are ready to bring the little one home. Here is a couple pictures of the bassinette in our room. I asked Ryan to rearrange the furniture, put the night stand on his side of the bed, and the bassinette on my side…I came home, and the bassinette was on his side. I was like, what in the world…but Ry just wants him close to him…how cute!

Thanksgiving is NEXT week and I still have my harvest decorations up around the house…but I am ready for the Christmas decorations to come out! I think that if we have time this weekend I will have Ry bring the tree up from the basement and put it up…no sense in waiting…might as well enjoy it!

I’m over it…

Time for Christmas stuff!!

This was taken out the back door this morning…I am sure it looks different now…much more snow :o)

Second post of the day…

My fist ‘post’ was more just like a ‘copy and paste’ so I thought I should leave another one! Busy day around the office today gearing up for the big CMU vs. Ball State football game. Everyone is fired up and excited! I am NOT going :o(…makes me a bit sad, but I know standing out at the tailgate for 3 hours and the sitting in the cold for another 3 would be too much for me right now! SO, instead we will be watching it from the comfort of the couch in our cozy living room.

I have a couple of pictures from this past Saturday evening to post today. The first is of me and my old roomie and dear friend Heather. She is preggers too, but not due until April! She is JUST starting to show and looks super cute!

The second is Heather, me, and my sister. Sister looks AWFULLY skinny compared to us (ESPECIALLY ME).

This week....

I get weekly e-mails telling me what is happening....crazy how big he is getting!! Here is what they say this week:

Your baby will be weighing in at around 5.78 pounds and measuring 18.66 inches. If you have not yet dropped (your baby has moved down into the birth canal) your uterus should now sit about 14 cm above your bellybutton and about 36cm above your pubic symphysis.
At this point of your pregnancy your healthcare provider should be able to tell you how your baby is presenting, for example if the head is down or if it may be in a breech position.
Usually around weeks 32-35 you can feel the baby's head in your lower abdomen below the umbilicus, sometime the baby's head may not be hard enough to be identified as the head. The head will become harder as calcium is deposited in the fetal skull.

Another busy day….

Mary left this morning to head back to Colorado :o(…mom and dad took her to Detroit and the traffic was so bad that she ALMOST missed her plane! Oops…the roads were really icy this morning, so people were probably driving extra slow! I met them for lunch on their way back through town.

The baby is STILL moving like crazy today. I am anxious to hear what the doctor says at my appointment on Friday morning. If all is ok I have 34 more days until my due date. Only 21 more work days until maternity leave...that is if I make it that far! I am still stressing about everything that has to be done before I leave!!

I have an event tonight after work with my student group…and then I will be heading home to cozy up on the couch. Ryan says that he has TONS of homework to do, so it should be a pretty quiet night!!

I haven’t taken pictures of my belly in a few weeks, so I better have Ryan do that as well…I am trying to NOT think about the size of my belly…but I am sure that one day I will want to look back at it and remember :o)

I do have a couple of pics to post that I took this weekend, but I haven’t loaded them yet…but I will post an old one :o)….this is Ryan on Mackinaw Island the day he asked me to marry him…What a cutie...yesterday was our 20 month anniversary...silly, I know...but I keep track of all of those dates!!

Monday, November 17, 2008

Moving Like Crazy

The movement that I can feel in my stomach today is unbelievable! I don’t think he has stopped once all day…and it is NOT comfortable! There is NO room left and he is right under my ribs! Poor little one...and poor me :o(...haha

This weekend was nice. Mary was here (still is). We got her from Detroit on Friday. Had dinner at Freddie’s and then went home and played some games. Mary and I beat Tony, Erik and mom…(of course :o)) at Catch Phrase.

On Saturday we came to town for lunch and some shopping. Had dinner at the lake and just hung out. Mom put the Christmas tree up (with a little help from the rest of us). Heather came and spent the night with us as well. She is starting to show and looks very cute!

Sunday we woke up went to church and breakfast and then headed over to Saginaw to Babies R Us and Toys R Us. Got a few more things for the baby!! It snowed like crazy while we were there. Kind of put us in the holiday spirit.

Ryan got back from hunting on Sunday night. He didn’t get one, but he said that it was fun (and cold)…he will try again next weekend I guess. We are heading out to mom and dad’s tonight for dinner with everyone before Mary heads back to Colorado tomorrow. Boo for her leaving…BUT she will be back in about 4 ½ weeks…staying for 2 ½ weeks that time!

Thursday, November 13, 2008


Only one more day until the weekend! It has been a long week and I am looking forward to some rest. I am sure that my weeks will feel like they are getting longer before they feel any shorter. I am not sleeping all that great…but I guess that is to be expected!

I am going to dinner tonight with Carson. Meeting her downtown right after work, so that will be fun! Ryan needs to pack up all of his stuff for hunting tonight as well. He is leaving tomorrow after working until noon and will not be back until Sunday evening. I will miss him, but we will be busy doing girl things .

We stayed up to watch the CMU game last night. I fell asleep in the fourth quarter. We were up 30-6 so I didn’t think much of it. Come to find out we went into overtime, but ended up pulling off the win! Close call…but all that really counts is the W. One more BIG game next week. That should be a true test.

Ryan and I tried to talk about the baby’s name last night…but still didn’t come up with a consensus. We are running out of time! EVERYONE asks what we are naming him. I say ‘I don’t know’ and they all think that I am just keeping it a secret! I guess it will come to us soon…

Feeling better today….

I am feeling much better today. Yesterday was a stressful day. Work was crazy and I had lots of homework looming over my head. I got the majority of the homework done last night, so tonight I will be able to relax a bit more and enjoy my evening!

CMU plays tonight at NIU. The game is televised on ESPN 2 so we will be able to watch it on TV. FIRE UP CHIPS! I had heard the NIU was picked to win, but I think CMU will get it! Next Wednesday will be the BIG game against Ball State. The last home game of the season AND both Ball State and CMU are having great seasons.

I just added the wedding countdown to my blog today and was surprised to see that there was only 10 months and 2 weeks until that big day! I better get planning.

TOO Busy....

Today has been a crazy day. I feel like I am running around like a crazy lady! Work was nuts, and now I have a meeting yet this evening. Sometime I need to fit some homework in as well! :(

I am starting to feel the need to rush and get as much done at work as I can before I am off for 10 weeks. Only 25 1/2 days left of scheduled work before my maternity leave...and it quite possibly could be LESS than that! WOW...seems like I have so much to do in such a short period of time! EEK. Luckily I have an intern that will be covering for me in my absence...

here is one more pic from the shower...three aunts kissing the baby :)
Aunt Mary, Aunt Erica, and Aunt Missy :)

6 more weeks!

Only 6 weeks til due date! That is CRAZY. I feel like we were just at 12 weeks!

I feel like the little guy is trying to kick his way out of my tummy today. It is NOT a pleasant feeling, but I can only imagine that the poor baby has no more room in there!

It is snowing a bit here today...I guess we should expect that for November, but we have been so lucky to have such warm weather.

Ryan is going out hunting with his dad tonight, so I will be cozying up at home trying to stay warm and working on some homework. Hopefully I can get a little jump on that before I get too busy this week.

Mary is coming home on Friday for the weekend, so I am looking forward to spending more time with her!!

Have a few more pictures of the shower now to post from Erica's camera....

gifts :)

Me and my dad...

cute cake!

Coast is Clear

Sister got her report back from the Biopsy on Tuesday and the news is good...the lump is nothing and she can either just let it be or get it removed! SO...that is wonderful news and we can all breathe a sigh of relief.

She is thinking about coming home and visiting us next weekend, which would be fun. The boys will be up north hunting so we will have a girls weekend! Maybe go out to some fun dinners, shopping, and movies!

I have a follow-up doctor appointment tomorrow morning from all of my issues last week, so we will pray that the BP is down and I am good to go for a couple more weeks. I feel as though I am better...the cold symptoms are finally all gone and I am feeling better over-all. Keeping my fingers crossed!

The nice weather is finally moving out and we are supposed to get wind, cooler temps, and rain tonight. Blah :(

Wednesday, November 5, 2008

Missing my sis...

I wish my sister was closer I mean like on my couch...not across the continent :(. She had a biopsy yesterday on a lump and is now bruised and in pain...and there is nothing that we can do about it. If she was closer to home we could take care of her! I am prying that the results come back good and that she makes a speedy recovery.

It’s another beautiful day here in mid-Michigan. It was 72 and sunny this afternoon! Crazy for this time of year. BUT, I hear that they are calling for 40's and a wintery-mix this weekend! Looks like this could be the last of it for the year.

I am looking forward to a relaxing evening of lying on the couch and catching up on some TV...and maybe a little homework (emphasis on little :)).

I am experiencing LOTS of baby movement today. It is getting uncomfortable. Poor guy is running out of room in there!

Election Day...

It’s a big day and everyone is buzzing about the election. It will be interesting to see what the future holds!

We worked some more on the nursery, and are now just about ready for the little guy to get in there!

It is STILL 70 degrees here today, sure doesn’t feel like November 4th! We better remember this come next May when it is still 40 degrees and dreary.

33 weeks and growing...

cozy little crib :)

changing table...

crib and lots of shower gifts that have yet to find a home..

7 more weeks!!

That is if the little guy hangs in there! The doctor appointment on Friday afternoon was good. My blood pressure was down a bit at the protein test came back good. Now I just have to follow up this coming Friday. Doctor said that if that some people just have their baby's early...and if I am one of those people, there isn’t much that I can do about it.

We went to the SHA football game at Kelly/Shorts on Friday night. It was looking rough at first, but they pulled out another victory. This Friday they play Beal City. Ryan is sure that Beal is going to win...but I am just not so sure!

After the game we went to Bennigan’s for dinner. I was still feeling pretty congested and cruddy.

Saturday was a lazy day at home and then at the lake. I laid around almost ALL day trying to make myself feel better. Ryan did some fishing. He caught one big to prove it!!

Yesterday after church mother and I drove over to Saginaw to buy the mattress for the crib at Babies R Us. Not the nursery is just about all set! I will take some more pictures of that tonight to post.

It is almost 70 degrees today! Sure doesn’t feel like November 3rd! It is supposed to be even warmer tomorrow. CrAzY.

Fall day at the lake...

fisherman and his little helper...

Jacqui looking on...

Ryan's big catch!!

Off to the Doctor AGAIN

I have my regular dr. appointment this afternoon...and it is a follow-up for my little scare on Tuesday as well. Hopefully everything is back to normal!

I am feeling a bit better. I have been tracking my BP for days, and it is still high...but I don’t think that I am in the danger zone any more. We'll see soon enough I guess!

It is a beautiful day for Halloween...supposed to be about 60 and sunny! It doesn’t even really feel like Halloween to me, because we aren’t doing anything to celebrate...however, I have had my fair share of cider, a doughnut, and candy already this morning :)
