Welcome to our little space on the net! This blog is just about our family life, and began as a way to keep family and friends updated on what was going on with my pregnancy with our first son, Gage. We've since added Evie to our family, and I continue to blog about family life, car seats, spina bifida, and anything else that catches my attention.

Still no baby- quit asking

Just kidding. It hasn't been that bad. I just don't want 1000 phone calls in the next 2 or week or whatever asking if she's here yet. When she is, you'll know. My 40 week appointment is tomorrow, so I'm sure I'll have a "latest possible" date by then (induction date).

Yesterday I got a message from someone I know through the therapy waiting room. Her hubby is a photographer and she asked me if I would be interested in a maternity session, free of charge, so her hubby could build his portfolio. She sent me a link to a pose he wanted to try, which included a bare pregnant belly....I said no way. She asked if I would be willing if we covered my belly and I said sure. So Gage and I went this morning and had the photo session. It was actually pretty fun and I can't wait to see the pics. We have to go back when Evie is a week or 2 old, and then he wants to take her pic once a month for a year, again, for free. We will just pay for any pics we buy. Gage got in on some of the pics today. Those were his first pro pics ever...I'm such a bad mom!! While there, I got to see some of this guy's work, and he's really good. I have added him to my blog roll if you want to take a peek at some of his work(Reflections by the Hill). I would highly recommend him to anyone in the area!

Our Christmas was good. Everyone came to us, which was fabulous! I should have planned for Gage to be a Christmas-time baby! Oh wait, it doesn't work that way, does it?

Anyway, we had a great time with everyone and Gage is just trying to come down off the grandparent-induced high he's been on. He was back at therapy today and did great. I was a little afraid that after being off for 2 weeks that he's be a pill, but he was excited to see "Seesa" and "Derk" again. Reesha said he was Mr. Social today and had to greet everybody before they could get down to business. I need to get Gage some supper, so I'll just post one pic from Christmas morning, when he got his train.

Can't wait to see the pics!

How long will your doctor let you go past your due date?

Looks like a fun Christmas morning!

So, no baby yet? Hahaha! She'll be here soon, though! I can't wait to hear about her and see pictures. You better not make us wait long.
