I am on brians blackberry so this will be short.

His name is Sterling Joseph Bohn. He was 10 lbs 12 ounces and 22 inches long. He looks just like Harrison. I am doing really well. He nursed perfectly the first time. Pictures to come!

Tomorrow is the big day! March 25, 2008

Well, the countdown is ON!  My parents get here in a few hours 🙂  The carpet went into the new house today 🙂  I can’t believe it is finally here!  I can’t wait to meet this new bundle of joy.  We decided to go out for dinner tonight to spend some quality time with Harrison and enjoy the last night as just the three of us.  The picture below is from tonight.  I am SO excited about tomorrow.  I just can’t wait!  The next time I post I’ll be a new mommy again 🙂  Happy blogging!

Wanna play? March 19, 2008

Okay, it’s that time…time to guess the sex, weight and length of this baby!  Here is some history to help.  My first baby, Harrison, was born at 40 weeks and 6 days.  He was 10 lbs, 7 ounces and 21 inches long. 

What do you think the sex of this baby is?  How big? How long?  We all know the date, so that doesn’t count as part of the game!

Oh, and whoever gets the closest, I’ll send a little something vinyl-lettering related.

Mommy goes first!

A girl, 11 lbs, 10 ounces, 21.5 inches long.

 

And the big day is…

Tuesday, March 25th.  I spoke with the midwife today and everything will be confirmed at my appointment on Thursday.  At least we have a date.  It isn’t as early as I hoped, but there are good sides to it.  The carpet will be in, which will mean that the house will be finished painted.  People can move the bedroom stuff over while I’m in the hospital and baby and I get to come home to a new home.  My parents get here on Monday so they can watch Harrison on Tuesday.  My sisters get here on the Friday, so I’ll be home from the hospital and that will be better when they are here. 

I think next week is going to be a big week for us 🙂  I probably won’t blog much between now and then because there is a lot of work to still be done on the house.  I have been spending the morning/early afternoon there, bringing Harrison home for a nap, trying to nap a little myself, and then heading over there at night to work on it.  It is a miracle I haven’t gone into labour, quite frankly.  Well, there is more laundry to fold! 

 

Another update March 17, 2008

I spoke with the midwife today and told her I want to either have this baby Thursday or Saturday, so if she could talk to the doctor and see which one works, that would be great.  She didn’t say no, which is a good start.  She did say that they might want to do an amnio because it isn’t 39 weeks yet, but that is something to be discussed with me and the doctor.  So she is going to call me back as soon as she knows more.  She said she is at the hospital today delivering babies, but as soon as she knows she’ll call me.  Also, she said if I don’t hear from her by tomorrow night to call her cell.  That is all I know right now on the baby front.

I spent the morning at the house organizing the mess that was there and, yes, I did do some painting.  I wore a mask, though, so don’t hate me and tell me what a bad mommy-to-be I am.  Thankfully Brian’s cousin’s wife watched Harrison for me so I managed to be very productive.  I’ve got another one of Brian’s cousins watching Harrison tonight so we can go over and get some more work done.  I keep forgetting to take before and afters, but I will remember today.

That’s it for now. 

 

I’m so excited…

I just talked to my parents and they are planning to come out this Friday and stay for a few weeks.  🙂  I knew they were coming around when the baby came, but I never imagined that I would be trying to move into a house and redo the house at the same time — I’m SO grateful for them!  They are the best parents in the world 🙂  Thanks, Mom & Dad!

PS> I actually cried when they told me they were coming this week — I’m such a baby!

 

All about the house… March 16, 2008

Here is my post all about the house.  Yesterday we went to Ikea 🙂  That is a very happy place for me.  I walked and walked and walked.  I’m going to attach links to what we bought for the house.  Enjoy!

This goes on the stairway. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80215600 

These are going above the dining room table. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/90096338

These are going in the hallway upstairs and right as you walk in the front door. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/50064221

We got three of these, one for each kid’s room and one for the toy room.  They aren’t that big, but they are also benches 🙂 http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/20078031

For toy storage in Harrison’s room. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/70115578

This is going in Harrison’s room.  His room has a nautical/underwater theme. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/90098243

This is for Harrison’s laundry — I thought he would have fun putting away and helping if it was cute. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/10098505

We needed a new dresser since ours didn’t travel so well.  The kids need dressers too so we are putting ours in their rooms and we got this for us.  We only got one of these as we have a TON of closet space in our room so this will be fine.  Also, there isn’t a lot of room for dressers in the room itself. Oh, and we got it inthe black/brown. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/00067830

I this for Harrison to be able to see better in the bathroom and help more.  http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/60101063

Anyway, that’s all for now.  We now have everything we need for the house except we haven’t bought the paint for the baby’s room or the kids’ bathroom yet because they weren’t able to mix the bathroom paint and we are waiting until we find out what this baby is to paint the room.
