Thanksgiving 2011 :-)

This year I have so much to be thankful for. I have my three beautiful children, Josh, my family and loved ones and my health. My little turkey was 10 days on his very 1st Thanksgiving. Here are some pics from this past week. :-)

He is finally here!!!

Baby Donovan James came into the world on November 14, 2011 at 2:33 a.m. This is also his oldest sister's birthday! He weighs 7 lbs and 11 ozs and is 21 1/2 inches long. I was 39 weeks and 5 days pregnant with him. He arrived about 25 minutes after we got to the hospital and I was not sure we would make it on time. Since I was complete when I arrived at the hospital, it was too late to get any pain medicine or epidural and I was terrified that I would just die or pass out from the pain. I guess the saying is true that you don't know how strong you are until you have no other choice. A few pushes later and he was born! He is so beautiful with hardly any hair and blue gray eyes. I think he looks just like his daddy. :) Needless to say, we are in love with him already!! I feel so blessed that God has entrusted Josh and I with this precious little baby boy. Here are some pics from the hospital and the first week of Donovan's life.

39 close!

I am 39 weeks preggo today with baby boy Smith. Last Wednesday, we had a false alarm and I was admitted to L&D for monitoring overnight but released Thursday because I hadn't made any progress. I am 2 cent. dilated and am BEYOND ready to meet this sweet baby. The bags are packed, the nursery is ready and he is welcome anytime. ;) I have been having some pretty decent BH contractions and tonight the moon is 99% full and there is a full moon tomorrow so maybe I will have some luck. Haha. I would love for him to have the b-day 11/11/11, but I am afraid that the hospital will be overcrowded due to c-sections and inductions being scheduled. I guess we will see.
I did take a 39 week belly shot but it isn't the best pic so I am going to try and post a better one later.
