Not quite yet

I realize a lot of our friends are checking the blog to see what the status of baby #2 is so I figured I should post something.  Currently we are still at home, though Kaylane has started having contractions.  They are not close at all yet, but she said that they are actual contractions and not Braxton-Hicks (is that how you spell that?).   She thinks we will be going to the hospital today so both of us are taking it easy and trying to rest as much as possible...since "going to the hospital today" probably means "no sleep tonight".  :)

For sure when we get to the hospital there will be a lot of sitting and waiting.  I plan to bring my laptop and camera up there for posting purposes since I know a lot of people are praying for us and want to know the status...but only so many people can actually BE at the hospital.

Thank you again for all the love everyone has been showing us.  It means so much!!!

Diapers and Wipes Shower

A HUGE "Thank You" goes out to one Mrs. Kyla Muns for all of her hard work in making our "Diapers and Wipes" baby shower a success this past weekend! We are very grateful that our close friends and family took time out of their busy schedules to bless and encourage us! We love you!!!

Important Baby #2 Announcement

We went to the doctor yesterday for the weekly checkup.  Due to the abnormal pain that Kaylane is in, if Baby #2 has not yet arrived by October 2nd, we will be inducing.  (I keep saying Baby #2 because we really have not picked out a name; we're waiting until we see her first.)  

Please be praying for Kaylane and Baby #2 during the next 2 weeks.  Kaylane has been in a lot of pain due to her pelvis and tail bone shifting into each other and constantly being at war (i.e. pinching muscles, numb legs, sore bottoms, etc).  She deals with pain better than anyone I know...I promise you, I would not be so spectacular.  Thankfully, the baby looks good and there is no indication that anything is wrong with her.  

My plan right now is to bring the camera and laptop to the hospital so we can take pictures of the process...and post if we want to.  The only pictures I'm talking about are the waiting period and afterwards when the baby is here; there will be absolutely no pictures of the delivery itself so no worries for those of you who don't want to see that.  (Child birth is a beautiful thing...but not really visually beautiful.)

We are very excited about this and can't wait to meet our second daughter.  Thank you in advance for all your prayers!

Photo Shoot Results

Let me first say a HUGE thank you to our dear friend, Angela Faris, for her patience with us last Saturday! Angela is an amazing photographer and she graciously agreed to take some family shots of us before Baby #2 arrives. Unfortunately, Ella is 16 months old and we quickly learned that she is not at the ideal age for trying to get "posed" family pictures!

Here are a few of my favs:






I love this picture even though it looks like Ella has a flower coming out of her nose! Hopefully a little Photoshop work can take care of that!

Clearly she loved this idea! :)

One of my very favs!

Angela tried to take a few maternity shots of me while David entertained Ella....



Sweet Daddy!

Some pictures of my girls

Everybody was all dressed up yesterday for our photo shoot with a friend. I couldn't help but grab the camera and take a few shots myself when we got back home.

PS - These pictures are probably gigantic when you click on them...which means they'll be nice and clear when you print them out, Grandmas...or anyone else who wants to print them out. :) The first one looks really cool in full size!
