Home from the Hospital

We welcomed our little guy, Blake Barker White, 15 days early on Febraury 13th.  He still came in at 7 pounds, 12 ounces, my smallest baby by over a pound!  And despite a few sleepless nights, a bout of the stomach flu, and a certain little girl adjusting to not being the baby anymore, things are going surprisingly well!  I even made chocolate chip cookies today (after sitting on the couch for a few hours, I figured I better do something!).  Welcome Blake!!

Return to Blogging?

I have taken quite the long break from blogging.  I'm not sad or regretful of it either--I've honestly just had no desire to do it!  I find in my life, some things just take precedence over others, and like the scripture/song says: "to every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose..."  I have been sitting on my couch now for about a day and a half, doctor's orders, and so I suddenly wanted to write a blog post.  And here we are.  I also figured it might be nice to start up again so I can post pictures of our new addition...coming any day now, but most likely at the end of February.  I had my 37 week appointment yesterday, and though there's no cause for concern yet, my doctor informed me that my amniotic fluid is on the low end of normal.  I go back tomorrow, and if it has fallen, we will be having a baby boy a lot sooner than we anticipated.  I don't expect this to happen, but if I've learned anything in life, it is that life doesn't always go according to plan.  This little hiccup has woken me up to the reality that baby boy is coming, whether now or in a couple weeks, and this is both exciting and scary at the same time--but mostly exciting.  It's been four years and a few months since we welcomed a baby into our family.  This baby has been long-awaited and we are so excited to finally meet him...stay tuned!
