Asher has arrived

I am typing this with one hand, holding Asher in my other. He arrived on Sunday- 6 lbs, 2 oz, 20 inches long. He was 19 days early, but is perfect! I will give more details and pictures in a little bit. We are so excited to finally hold our Asher Israel.

Letting Things Slide

Devouring a cupcake with chocolate icing- a great mid-afternoon snack (or was it mid-morning?)
Peeling an onion- happily, this kept him occupied for a long time as he walked around my kitchen, peeling away.

I was feeling very pregnant today...Ezra took advantage of that!

Enjoying the Weather

Ezra LOVES pens...he put a bunch in his pocket. I counted them later- 14 pens!

Ezra on top of the world (ha ha!)

I am loving the spring weather. It gives me energy. Thankfully, I am feeling much better after nearly a week of sickness. Ezra has been sick since Friday- it seems like allergies. Pray that this is not the start of a lifelong condition! It is so hard to see him miserable, and to hear his congestion as he sleeps at night.

I have 30 days until my due date. I am feeling the fatigue of pregnancy. No matter how much I sleep, simply making supper can wipe me out! The baby has been moving- big movements, often pushing out from the right side of my belly. He is definately growing and taking up more space inside me.

I feel so ready for this baby. His clothes are ready, the car seat is ready, the house is clean...It is a good feeling to know that whenever he comes, I won't be scrambling to prepare. That is one good part of feeling like I was ready to go weeks ago- I got things ready! Of course, the house won't stay clean for 30 days....

Nearing the end, I think

I think the pregnancy is almost over- but, i felt that way at 12 weeks, as well. I feel like I could go into labor any moment, then realize that I still have a month and a half left. This has been the craziest pregnancy. Time has been so messed up, in that I keep thinking the end is nearer than it is. Anyway...one of these days, I will have this little guy. Sooner or later, the end will come. Until then, you'll probably get a few more blogs on this issue...
