Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas!  

This Christmas I feel so overwhelmingly blessed to have this sweet little girl to call our own.  She melts my heart to pieces and we could not be more in love.  

We are missing our little Emma throughout the holidays.  We miss her always yet the holidays seem to bring your feelings to the forefront rather than having them stuffed down.  Kallen has heard so much about her big sister and will continue too.  We are so incredibly thankful for Kallen and for the time we had Emma.  

 What an amazing gift our God gave to us on this day.  Happy Birthday Jesus!

I didnt realize how much time I wouldn't have bringing a baby home!!  Happy one week old to you Kali Jayne!!  Where has this time gone??  Miss Kallen is just absolutely wonderful and Josh and I couldnt feel more blessed.  We have had many visitors over the past week and when they leave all I want to do is relax and hold my sweet girl.  Which has turned into less blogging time!  I want to write all about her birth and our first moments/days with those posts will come.  For now I will just leave you with some pictures and I am going to snuggle Kali up!  Hope to catch up with everything soon!!

Bethany & I the night before I had Kallen - I am 39 1/2 weeks and she is 31 here!  Cant wait to meet our nephew in a few short months!!

Right after my epidural...which is one of the greatest inventions I must say!  More power to you if you dont want one/didnt have it, but boy am I thankful I did!  It was great!!

First doctor's appt - she got a raving review!!

1 Samuel 1:27-28 I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give her to the Lord. For her whole life she will be given over to the Lord.”

39 Weeks!

How far along: 39 Weeks

Size of baby: Your baby's waiting to greet the world! She continues to build a layer of fat to help control her body temperature after birth, but it's likely she already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, a mini watermelon. (Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.) The outer layers of her skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath.

Weight gain: 37 lbs

Maternity clothes: mostly all maternity clothes besides some shirts/dresses

Gender: Girl!

Movement: Yes, she has slowed a little bit - but with the doc guessing she is around 7.5 lbs - there cant be much room to move!
Sleep: Not sleeping that great..but its manageable!
Symptoms: Back pain, braxton hicks/regular contractions, swollen feet, hands and face...

Cravings: Cold water. I have always usually preferred room temperature water but lately I prefer super cold water, and as always - Sweets!!

Best Moment this week: Finding out that we get to meet our little girl on Monday!  I cant

What I am looking forward to: Having this little girl on MONDAY!  I am a wide range of emotions but so so excited! 

This will be my last pregnancy I will be induced Monday morning and will do my best to update (with a few pictures of course!) soon after we meet our little girl!!!
