Heeeeere's Jack!

Our beautiful baby boy James Michael Vincent was born at 3:24pm on February 24, 2007 in Lexington, KY. He was 7lb 1oz and 20 inches long. He and his mommy are doing well, and should go home from the hospital on Tuesday with daddy. Check out his first few days below:

How long will he remain Mommy's little angel?

No baby yet!

Well, Mike and I went to the doctor on the 9th and the doctor does not think that our little man will come before his due date. Evidently I have made him far too comfortable in my belly and he is just not ready. But, he is very healthy and we are both doing great so I guess I cannot complain too much! Besides, it is very cold here in Kentucky so at least I know he is nice and warm. The doctor estimated that he weighs about 7.5 pounds - that sounds huge to me but I think it is right on track with how far along I am.

We go back to the doctor on Valentine's Day so once again I am hoping that when I go she will tell me that he is going to come early! I have been having some contractions but they come and go and vary in intensity. This waiting is killing me...I am not used to not being in charge! I guess he is training me for what it is going to be like after he is here.

Well, that is all for now. I'll keep you posted on any developments.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I managed to figure out how to take pictures on our new camcorder. The quality is not as great as with our digital camera but at least you can check out the nursery. Getting the nursery pulled together was definitely a team effort. The bedding was a gift from all of my parents. I love it! My Dad and brother Spike put together the crib (it was a 2 night affair) that we got from Mike's sister, Michele. The changing table, courtesy of Mom and Miller, was put together by my Dad. Big Daddy and Mimi (a.k.a. my Dad and Diane) gave us the dresser and Mike and I put that together ourselves. Fun, fun! Liz and Vince bought the rug for the baby's room. The quilt hanging over the changing table was a gift from my Mom for her first grandbaby.

Putting the nursery together was a real challenge for me because I cannot make a decision right now to save my life. Luckily everyone was very patient with me and moved the furniture all around so that I could find the configuration that I liked the best.
