Two weeks in

Ada was born at 2:30 in the morning on her due date, July 16th.  I started having contractions around 11:30 and we barely made it to the hospital in time to start pushing. Luckily there isn't much traffic at midnight. We are thankful that it went quickly and she made it out healthy and happy. 

She came with a full head of dark hair and dark eyes at 8lbs 2oz and has been gaining weight like a champ.
I lost a lot of blood in the process so we spent some extra hours in the hospital.  They were super nice and helpful.  Order the pot roast and sherbet. 

The last two weeks have been a whirlwind of learning and snuggling with occasional sleeping.  She is so cute and fun it's usually hard to be unhappy about lack of sleep and poopy diapers.

Matt goes back to work on Monday, so we'll have another change to adapt to but I'm sure we'll figure it out.

Thanks for the love and well wishes!

Babytime is anytime

We have been having a lovely spring and summer with lots of time spent just the two of us and lots of time spent with family and friends.  A couple of weekends ago, we got together with a group of old friends from out of town and went up north to spend some time on the lake.  It was great to catch up and relax for a long weekend.

A friend of ours took some nice maternity photos for us

We've been wrapping up our window refinishing project, and are getting new blinds as well.  So much excitement in home ownership.  Matt's been getting out on frequent weekday runs, and I am still doing some pregger lady yoga and fitting in long walks in the woods.  

Two weeks to baby's due date!  Our hospital bag is packed, and I think we have about everything we could possibly need for the kiddo and for us.  That's what you get with a planner.  I'm still enjoying this pregnancy thing; it's a fascinating process.  

Baby's room, all ready to go
