Baby Bean

Baby Bean has arrived! We are loving him to pieces. Our sweet boy arrived Tuesday morning at 6:45. He weighed 8 lbs 14 oz. He was 21.5in long. He has dark hair and I won't be surprised if he ends up with brown eyes. He is absolutely precious. The girls are in love with him and would like to hold him all the time. We won't have to worry about someone to help hold him. Biscuit is cautiously optimistic. He has held him a few times and likes to talk about him. Here are a few pics and then I am off. I probably won't be posting anything for some time.

In an effort to keep busy I started a new book last night. Had to remind myself to turn off the light and go to bed. That is always a good sign the book will be good. It is 'The Imperial Cruise' by James Bradley. It is about the cruise that Teddy Roosevelt and Taft took to the Philippines, Korea, China and Japan in 1905. It tells how this cruise and the diplomatic talks surrounding it set up the events of WWII specifically, the Pacific involvement. Very interesting! I will keep you posted on how the book turns out.
No new baby news yet. For the most part I feel great and don't have any complaints. Of course, I am tired of gestating and have had yucky heartburn but other than that am doing well. Trying to decide how to do my lesson plan for this next week. I am hoping that baby will come yet this weekend and I won't have to do my plan! Must go shove some more laundry through!

Baby Update

Well, apparently Baby Bean is super comfortable in my uterus. I think my gestation is going to stretch into years instead of months. Trying to be patient and wait. I have had really horrible heartburn the past month or so. My throat is sore! Have done all the nesting I can do. No big projects to work on to keep me busy and distracted. Still doing school.

My darling husband took us all to see Megamind at the $1 theatre yesterday. So funny! I was really surprised that I liked it as well as I did. The previews were just ok but the movie was good. That was a nice distraction. We came home and made pizza. I had quiche (see aforementioned description of heartburn). Husband is at Bible study this morning and then has to go into work for a few hours then we have our small group for church tonight. At least today will be distracting. We will see what the next few days bring! It is supposed to be 60 degrees tomorrow so maybe we can all take a walk. Don't worry we will call, FB and otherwise inform when baby arrives!

Well, all hopes of birthing early are gone! Tomorrow is my due date. (For whatever that is worth.) I am feeling well, but am ready for this baby to arrive. I am trying to be patient and remember that God is in control of when this baby will be birthed. He has a perfect time and I don't want to interfere with that time. So, no, we will not be doing anything to encourage labor. Unless you count going up and down the stairs several times a day or vacuuming. (both things cause contractions) I did have contractions the other night for two hours but they went away. I had contractions like that for about a week before Mr. Biscuit arrived. I am hoping for any day other than Valentine's Day.
