Jackie and the Girls

So no baby yet. Grumble. If I don't go by Tuesday, my midwife is going to get things going for me. I like to say it is because we birth large babies in our family (which is true, 9 and 10 pounders), but it really comes down to my patience!

So on another note, I never posted anything about when Jackie and the girls came down for their Spring Break. It whirlwind of Big Sky Bagel, lounging in our pj's all day, giggling and the children's museum just before they zipped back home! It went way too fast (like it always does) and I pray this baby makes his debut soon so that it work for Jackie to visit me again! I am spoiled! It was too much fun! I didn't pick up the camera like I should have, so I only have pictures of the Children's Museum! Enjoy!

Our cheesy attempt at taking a picture of ourselves!

37 weeks and a Big Brother

Here is a picture of me at 37 weeks. Ug. That's all I have to say!

Colton had his big brother class on Tuesday. It was pretty cute and he was excited. He says that he is ready for the baby to be here now.... hmmm, so am I!

Listening to a story about being a big brotherPutting a diaper on a baby. He says that he will change all the poopy diapers. Hmmm... we'll see!

Clean, warm baby
Showing him all of the buttons on the bed. Why do I feel that this was something they could've done without!

Graduation to big brotherhood. I think he's ready!

Don't blame me

I have spent at least an hour trying to get stupid pictures on this site and I am now giving up! I will try again tomorrow, unless I am in the hospital having a child (yeeeeee haaaaaaaw!) For some reason it just won't put the pictures up. I'll try making them smaller and post then. Good night!!!

So if you check back here and are wondering if we have welcomed our little guy yet, I'm sorry! I apologize for slacking for so long. We have been remodeling the basement (a never-ending project), Jackie and her girls visited us for their spring break, and just daily craziness has prevented me from keeping up with my blog! Last week I posed for some local artists to include Sharie Babb and jess Messer-King. It was a lot of fun and I got some great, artistic pictures of my pregnancy! Here are a few pictures from that.
Baby update: We went in at 1:30 a.m until 4:30 a.m. last thursday (thank you Rachel M. for watching Colton!) with contractions every 3-5 minutes! Unfortunately they weren't going anywhere and they sent us home dilated at only 1 cm. I am definitely ready for this baby to join us out here, but Jesse's family doesn't get here until Wednesday, so I guess we'll wait 'til then!
