Grace Taylor Maureen





Grace Taylor Maureen made her debut on September 15th at 1:19 pm.  She weighed in at 7.2 pounds, and is 19 inches long.  She is absolutely perfect and we couldn't be happier!  Monday night I was trying to get to sleep and I felt the contractions around 2:00 am, I waited to wake up T.J. to make sure it was the real thing.  I woke up T.J. around 3:15, and we left for the  hospital at 3:45.  Once we got to the hospital they had me walk the halls for 30 minutes and then checked me to confirm that labor was progressing.  After we were admitted to a room around 7:30 am. I got the epidural and we waited.  I started pushing around 12:45 and she was born at 1:19 pm.  All in all it was a wonderful labor experience, and well worth the prize!

Still Pregnant!










Here are some nursery pics, and little projects I have done to keep busy.  I included a picture of the finished bedding I made.  I really surprised myself and I am glad I chose to make it.  Also, I had a lot of fun making the little onesies.  My boss gave me about 15 plain white onesies, so it was really fun decorating them.  And how cute is the tutu?!  I learned how to make it from http://www.make-your-own-baby-stuff.com/baby-tutus.html.

Today???

So I had my first checkup on Wednesday to see my, or I should said the baby's progression.  I must say that I was going into thinking that I would show no sign of progress and that I would surely be pregnant for another 2 weeks, but to my surprise I am "well on my way."  I can hardly believe that the time is actually coming to an end, and I will meet my little girl any day now.  Last night T.J. and I went on a 3 mile walk to see if we could help speed things along.  Today I am getting a pre-labor pedicure with my boss and tonight we shall try another "private " method of natural induction. ;)   Last but not least, tonight is a full moon, and doctor says it's not a myth that more babies are born on nights like tonight.  We shall see...
