We are so very blessed to have our precious new son in our lives.  Jacob is so excited and we can not wait to get him home.   Here are a few pictures of our new addition.

39 Weeks

Well, here I am hanging on at 39 weeks.  With Jacob I had been induced by now so this is the longest I have ever been pregnant and I am not going to lie, it is tough!  I am so ready for Baby Colyn to make his grand entrance into this world but with it being Christmas this week, he can hang on until at least Saturday, HA! 

I went to the doctor yesterday and I am making progress but as long as he stays snug I will be induced Monday morning at 5 AM.  So, in other words, I will more than likely make it to my due date.  Here is my last belly picture!  I am so over the whole maternity clothes thing I could scream.  I can not wait to wear somewhat normal clothes again.  And, since I am in two weddings and my 10 year high school reunion is this summer I have got to bust it in the gym! 


I hope everyone has enjoyed my growing belly but I know it will be so much more enjoyable to see pictures of a precious little baby.  I will get pictures up on here just as soon as I can after he makes his arrival.

It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

We have had a very busy few days of non stop Christmas activities, including making cookies at Nana's, Christmas at my Gigi's, Christmas with my parents and the Candlelight Service at church.  Also, last Thursday I was able to go to Jacob's Christmas party at school, so I thought I would just share pictures from all of the events (warning, picture overload).

38 Week Update

I am still here and pregnant.  I went to the doctor on Wednesday and made a little progress but not much.  I am now 1 1/2 centimeters dilated and Mr. Colyn is further down but still has not completely dropped. 

I have been power walking and doing as much as I can to make him want to come out but I think he is snug in there.  If he does not decide to come on his own we have scheduled an induction for December 28th at 5 A.M.  My doctor will be out of town until Christmas Eve so I will not see her again until that day (unless he decides to come on Christmas because she is on call that day).  So, we are still hanging out and just waiting on this precious baby to come into this world and change our lives.  And, just in case you missed my picture on Wednesday, enjoy.

38weeksI hope you all have a great weekend.  We will be having Christmas at my grandmother's and making cookies at Nana's.

I Was Able to Hang

Friday night was our annual GNO Christmas party.  I was so excited that all the girls were able to make it.  We invited the guys again this year and they never fail to entertain.  We sang and danced to  old school rap, ate and laughed the night away.  It was too much fun and I was so glad that I was able to hang and not get too tired!

After all the dancing, laughing and downright good times, Mr. Colyn can come any day now!!

Christmas Tour 2009

Christmas Tour of Homes with The Nester

I am a little late to the party, but nevertheless welcome to our home.  I love to decorate for Christmas and even though I am nine months pregnant I did not let that stop me this year.  I hope you enjoy!
