Family Photos!


Well we official took our first new family pictures today! We had been waiting for a chance to get a full family picture in the hospital and the Borer's came to visit and took a few pictures for us! Lyza continues to crack me up with how happy she is to have and hold her baby sister. As we narrowed down the name list for the baby to a couple, we asked Lyza what the baby's name should be and she kept insisting it be "baby sister"! So we've decided that the baby's name will be...Baby Sister!!! Ok so tomorrow we'll have the name all picked out, because that's when we come home from the hospital!  Oh and its so cute how "baby sister" makes the tiniest squeaky noises so randomly throughout the day!  Anyhow, mom and baby are doing great and I, mostly just I, am looking forward to coming home tomorrow!!

Well tonight is officially my first blog post ever! Yes this is Marcus doing the update as Jamie is wiped out as one would expect. So after arriving at the hospital at 5:30 AM, Jamie finally gave birth to our new 8lb 3oz 19 1/4 in. long baby girl at 5:05 PM!! It was a long day filled with anticipation, frustration, excitement and relief! We are so excited to have a new addition to our growing family. Jacquelyn is in town helping out with Lyza, and soon after the birth came to the hospital and Lyza got to finally meet her "Baby Sister" (as she would put it). I have to say she was a little nervous at first, but that quickly changed as she was begging to hold her little apprentice. Lyza was also so cute as she expressed her concern about her mommy, asking if she had "owies"! So all together its been one great day for us, a memory that will be cherished forever! PS: We haven't quite given her a name yet, we are still trying to get to know her and hopefully tomorrow our narrowed list will be down to one.

Two Days Away

I cant believe that we will be meeting our baby girl in less than 48 hours! It still seems so surreal, time is a funny thing... You think it is never going to pass, then before you know it it has. I am filled with so many different emotions its hard to know what to feel. I know my grandma would tell me to stop thinking and feel the moment, and I know she is too right. The moments pass too fast, and you cant relive them. So I am trying to relish every moment to come and to be, and stop thinking too much...
Marcus took the day off the other day and we did just that... Enjoyed every second! We went to the beach and spent time together as a family. I had the best time clearing my head of thinking and just feeling. I couldn't help but notice all the love and happiness Lyza brings to us, and I cant wait to bring another little one into this world!

Baby Update

We had an ultrasound done to see if the baby is showing any complications of the bowel. Lyza was born with a bowel duplication cyst that had to be removed, so we were just taking precautions. Well good news there! The doctor didnt see anything out of the normal, although I am sure we will be checking again when she is born. I have to say I was a little surprised when the doctor estimated the baby to be 6 1/2 pounds! AHHHH! Now this could be off by a half pound either way, but she is a big girl considering she still has 5 weeks left to grow! Good thing I am being induced 2 weeks early (the 29th)! Our doctor also took a few 3-D pictures for us. We were so excited to get these, we weren't able to have these done for Lyza..
