look at all this cuteness

We really try to avoid having Mason in bed with us, but that doesn't always happen. Sometimes exhaustion takes over and Mom and Dad need a nap too!

I'm a mommy!!

It's a BOY!!!!

Mason Christopher was born Christmas morning at 7:48 am weighimg 7lb13oz. We came home on Saturday morning and he has been absolutely amazing. We are so blessed to have him in our lives. I'll try to post some information later. I never knew how valuable time was until now when I don't have any of it.

We're a family!

Mason's first Christmas

He's such a great daddy

Maternity Slideshow

Even more maternity photos!

I just received the CD from Eric with the rest of our photos. Here are a few more of my favorites! Hopefully it snows A LOT this winter so we have enough money to have Eric take pictures of our little one. I think he is such a fantastic photographer.

into single digits!

There's 9 days left to my due date. Wow. I was really hoping I'd be one of the lucky ones and not make it to single digits, but here I am. Each day that goes by is just another day closer. Like my doctor said at my last appointment, "The baby WILL come". Hopefully it's sooner than later, but I'm running out of time to be early. I really don't mind being late. I'm just worried about the baby being born on Christmas Day. If I'm early I wouldn't have to worry about that anymore.

My grandma's the best!

My grandma is so excited to become a great-grandma. Last week we get an envelope addressed to Baby S*** and inside it was a advent calendar. A few days later another envelope comes addressed to great-grandchild S***. My grandmother had found these cute handmade booties when she was in Bethlehem, PA. Apparently it was quite a process for her. First she found some green ones but didn't like the pattern. Then she found some orange ones but thought that my husband would never put a boy in orange. She finally found the red, white, and blue ones and decided on those. She wants to know the sex of the baby so bad. Hopefully we'll all know VERY soon. I can't wait to make her a great-grandma!

Full Moon

Tomorrow there is a full moon at 11:38 am. Let's hope it brings on labor. Wouldn't 12/12 be a great birthday!?

At my 38 week appointment I was a fingertip dialated, 70% effaced, and baby was at 0 station. Come on full moon!!!!

All ready for Christmas!

The house is decorated. The tree is up. The presents are wrapped. I've never been so on top of things in my life! Only have two more gifts to buy which will get done this week. The only thing we're missing now is our baby!

I hope we're able to fill the empty spot with a stocking for baby! The stocking on the end is our dogs :) If I deliver very close to Christmas I'm going to need help from friends and family to get all that "baby's first Christmas" stuff. I don't want to jinx myself by buying all that stuff not knowing when baby will come.

I'm baking a porker!

I had a growth ultrasound today and baby is measuring 7 lb 2 oz already! Since I still have three weeks to go and baby gains 1/2 lb a week they are estimating this baby to be 8 lb 10 oz. I know it's just a guesstimate but it's still pretty scary. I should probably buy some more 0-3 mo onesies since it looks like this little one might not fit into newborn size clothes.
