Just Pictures

Things have been very busy around here and I have not had much time on the computer or to even put some thoughts into our life happenings of the past 13 days. Max will be 2 weeks old tomorrow and it seems that time just flies by. We smother him with kisses and hugs every day and hold him ever so tightly to make sure that he knows how much we love him.

Max appears to be a healthy little boy with a never ending appetite. His doctors' appointments have been going well. He is starting to gain back his weight. We will visit with the doctor again on Friday and I am hoping that he will be back at his birthweight then.

Enjoy the pictures.

Our Blizzard Baby

I am happy to announce that Max Oliver arrived safely on Friday, February 5th at 4.12PM. He is 20 inches and weighs 8 lbs 4 oz. His cheeks look just like they looked on his last ultrasound picture and I am not sure how we are going to be able to stop kissing them. We came home yesterday afternoon and are so happy to have him here with us.

Here are a few pictures of our cuddly little guy.

I can't believe that we are so close to meet our little Peanut. My doctor scheduled my induction of labor for Friday, February 5th at 7AM, which means in less than 48 hours we will be heading to the hospital to check in.

I am beyond excited, happy and joyful and at the same time I am frightened, scared and worried beyond words. I am well aware that this next journey in our lives as a family will bring many new challenges as we attempt to balance the joy of holding Peanut while so deeply longing & missing Lucas.

We've had another minor snow storm and I love how the white cover makes everything look so peaceful. The weather frogs are also calling for another storm to head our direction on Friday evening....I am honestly very excited that it will be snowing during the first hours that we will be holding Peanut. I've always loved snow and for me it portrays serenity and peace. Here is a picture from this morning - just magical.

I am well aware that we are heading towards another roller coaster of emotions and hope that we will find our way through this new journey as a family of four.

If you are the praying type, please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
