Elijah has arrived!

He is here! After 48 hrs of contractions and then contractions that were less than a minute appart, with back labor, and throwing up with every contractions...our little miracle arrived!
He was born on January 15 at 10:29 a.m. He weighed 6 lbs and 14 ounces and was 20 and 1/4 inches! I have barely had time to shower or eat or anything. But he is a blessing.
Check out Alie's blog for some pictures....I would post some but I have entered "mommy's world" so I don't have the time yet!
We are so blessed!

I'm Due! I'm Due!

Today was my official due date. And Elijah was inside my tummy the whole time laughing at us. Guess he isn't too into "schedules".
Maybe I should drink that raspberry tea and go on a really long walk tomorrow! I want him to come out! Hopefully I won't go too over my due date! *crosses fingers*

We watched a c-section video tonight at Lamaze.....yup...I officially don't want THAT to happen to me....ever!

Elijah's Nursery

Well, here it is! Elijah's nursery! There are still some things that need to finished....but it's coming together and looking so cute!

This is the chair that Shawn and I recieved as a great gift from our parents. It is so comfortable and totally gives the baby's room a cozy and warm feeling. The blanket was a gift from Auntie Alie and Uncle's real soft.

I purchased the curtains and the baseball rods from Pottery Barn Kids and they totally add to the fun little kids baseball feel.

Elijah's letter arrived on Christmas Eve.....I found this great lady on Ebay who can design them anyway that you want. I love them and they totally make it feel like the room is waiting for his arrival.

Hope you enjoy!

39 weeks and counting!

Today is my first official day of week 39. I'm so excited!
I'll try and catch up on what has happened these last two months!
I finished school 5 days before Christmas! It was a stressful time because I was starting to get extremely tired and studying for all of my tests and the final was killing me. But I did it! And I am totally finished with school. That is so amazing to say.
At work my boss switched me over from a Nurses Assistant to Monitor Tech/Ward Clerk. Which was so amazing because standing on my feet for 12 hours a day was really getting to my back. So basically I was processing all of the doctor's orders and admitts and surgery stuff.
My last day of work was December the 29th. I was so excited to be off and able to prepair and catch up on sleep. I came home to find My parents and Shawn and his parent's here and they all suprised me with my chair for Elijah's room. It totally give the nursery a cozy feel and I can't wait to put up his letter's that I had made for him.
And then......I got inredibly sick. Not fun! I think I had food poisoning. So basically on the 30th I was out all night and throwing up and it wasn't fun and I am still recovering from it.
Elijah still isn't ready to come into this world yet. And I am totally okay with that because had he decided that he was ready I would have had no energy to push that lil man out.
Shawn and I are going to have pictures taken tommorrow and finish packing our hospital bags. This is such a crazy's so close and exciting.
Shawn has been amazing. He took care of me the whole time I was sick and stayed in with me on New Years Eve. And didn't complain that I passed out on him two mintues after it was 2008. Ha. He got me a dozen red roses and the magazine with Christina Aguilera's pregnancy photo's that I have been wanting. He has been so sweet and attentive. I'm blessed.'s a scattered update but my brain is in a million places right now! I will post some pics from christmas and the baby's room tonight! Hope all is well with everyone!!
