We'd like you to meet...

Jaxon William Crowley, born on July 25 at 7:33pm weighing in at 9lbs 4oz and 21 1/2 inches long. I'll share the labor story with you in another post but I wanted to get some pictures up of him because he is so dang cute. Enjoy!

The proud big sister, she couldn't hold him for very long because he is "so heavy."

Belly Shot and Nursery Construction Update

So I only have 4 days left. Wahoo! Hopefully he decides to come by then. And just when you thought I couldn't get any bigger here is another belly shot.

Well most everything is put together now and we actually have things on the wall. Cory put some things together and hung stuff for me today because this is the first Saturday in a while that he hasn't had to do some kind of work or calling stuff.

(The changing table and mirror with hooks and fingerprints all over it)

We still need to put together a bookshelf and hang these cute canvases my friend made and other minor details. But we're almost completely done.

And sorry, I haven't done the bedding yet. But someday you will see pictures of that finished project.

Oh and I got this super cute book off of Amazon. I felt it went perfect with the theme of his room. Naomi loves when I read it to her.

Of course we had to take a break today and let Naomi have some fun (especially since we spend a lot of time inside because it is too hot to play outside).

She's getting so big, I can hardly believe it.

Hopefully the next time I post it will be the big announcement. I guess we'll see.

Almost There!

I can't believe I have 16 days to go. Two weeks ago the doctor checked me and I was dilated to a 1 1/2. Last week I was dilated to a 2 1/2, so we'll see what the doctor has to say this week. I've been feeling lots of strong contractions lately, so I definitely feel like he will be here soon.

So here is my belly with 16 days to go.

I've been super tired and uncomfortable lately, so luckily Naomi doesn't mind me sitting while we play. Her new favorite game is beauty salon. We pull out the water bottle, combs, blow dryer and curling iron (not plugged in of course) and we take turns doing each other's hair. We even pretend to cut each other's hair, but the only scissors we're allowed to use are our fingers.

Naomi is such a cutie, she is going to be such a good big sister.
