Anna's Tanning Bed

Quick update with Liz sleeping and me watching Anna......our pediatrician sent out the jaundice suitcase yesterday evening and she has been in ever since, except for feedings and changes. Her jaundice did not reach levels that were too high, so hopefully after a day or two she should be jaundice-free and ready to be bundled up! I promise there will be more picutres soon!

As Promised!

The beautiful Mom-To-Be before Anna's arrival.....

Anna Jane in the nursery. She is under watch for her respiratory system, but is improving as we speak! Pink as can be and in Size 1 diapers! We can't wait to have her in our room!

Anna is Here!

Anna is here and she is large and in charge! 10 lbs, 3 ozs, 21 inches, and oh so beautiful. Pictures coming soon.......


...23 hours before giving birth?

Well, if it were me, I would host a Sooner watch party. It's only normal, right?
You heard correct! Nathan and I are having our baby TODAY! Thanks to a little thing called pre-eclampsia. It's no wonder why I've felt so bad this past week and a half. I put on 20 lbs (I almost fainted when the nurse told me) of fluid in the past two weeks. I'm pretty sure it's all in my legs and my now Vienna Sausage toes.

After we sucked up the fourth quarter pretty bad errr... I mean after our guests went home, Nathan and I picked up the party remnants, packed the baby's bag, did a couple of loads of laundry, and made a list of things we needed to do today before heading to the hospital this afternoon. And we did it all without one single sarcastic comment towards each other or an argument over whether Nathan should do the responsible thing and go into work super-early this morning for a few hours to wrap up some stuff. (*) (**)

So, I'm off now to pick up a few last minute necessities and then on to get my haircut. 'Cause there is no way I'm missin' that. My girl's kinda hard to get into and let's face it, I wanna be the sexiest thing that that hospital gown has ever seen. We'll update as soon as possible with all the details of our better be a Baby Girl!

(*) If you believe this, you truly don't know us.
(**) I may or may not get my revenge by making him shave the bottom half of my legs that seem impossible to reach at this point.
