tiny update

ARCHER made his debut when I was about 41 weeks pregnant. This go, we took our cues from nature, no drugs. The birth story is brief, full of pain and intense joy. We went to my dad's in the morning for breakfast, crossing our fingers I would have the baby soon. I had felt painless cramping a few times early that morning, so I was hopeful. Will and I left Graham at my dad's and went to the birthing center, just to get checked out. The midwife told me I was 5 centimeters dilated and to go have a walk around the park. Will and I were walking and talking, I started having noticeable contractions! By 1:30 we were inside, the pain had arrived. It hurt more than I had ever fathomed, but by 2:45 we were holding our new son.   He was healthy, beautiful and we were thrilled. Less than an hour later, I felt great and we got to show him off to some family that had gathered to meet him. We were home by 7pm and ordering Thai food.   :)

really 36.5

i almost didn't take a pic at all this week. i've been exhausted. i AM however, going to make my husband take proper pictures this weekend. or at least pics with a proper camera. texas heat is no place for a pregnant woman! i have a 2 year old to entertain, no pool access and my legs are weak after about 30 min. of shuffling. that said, i am in good spirits and so eager to meet this kiddo. everyday is over 100 degrees and graham and i are both so stir crazy. alas, the baby and cooler weather will be here before we know...right? the thought of waiting another month to give birth makes me a bit nuts.  :)

birthday wishes

my 35th year is off to an amazing start thanks to my husband. he took us to the lake for a night and the three of us couldn't have had a better time. we can't wait to meet the newest addition to the family, but it was nice having a little holiday, just the three of us. speaking of my belly tenant...july in texas and 8 months pregnant is not ideal. i can't wait to not be preggers anymore!!! i'm counting the days, the hot, hot days.

i finally bought something for the one in my tummy! i think i am going to be forced to buy a matching tee for graham. the 100 degree days are here and i'm going to be a bit uncomfortable in them to say the least. that said, the next 8-10 weeks will be filled with friends, family and a bit of swimming, nice. i'm also switching from my doctor and the hospital to the birthing center, better late then never!
