last pic

I just found this picture on a memory stick. I think it's my last pregnant picture with Winston. I wanted to post it, because I remember posting my last pregnant picture with Birdie. This was a couple of days before my due date. It was a chilly morning, and we were on our way to the park for a play date. I was pretty uncomfortable the last month or so, but I already miss that big belly.

from a few weeks ago

I'm a little delinquent on my blogging, and I'm trying to catch up, so these are a little old. Hey, cut me some slack. I was busy pushing out a 9-and-a-half-pound boy!

These are from the day before Winston was born at our little neighborhood Easter egg hunt. There was a dj and music and food and bouncy houses. Also, there was an Easter bunny and a Chick-fil-a cow that Birdie wanted to stay away from. She is saying, "No, cow! No!" over and over again in the first picture.

 Watching the kids in the dance competition. I think this was her favorite part of the day. That bandaid is covering healthy skin, by the way. She has a thing for bandaids.
Still not sure about that cow....

I can't believe I was able to capture this adorable smile! Love.

quick update

Here's just a quick picture and update, because both of my sweet babies are asleep at the same time, and I have to decide if I'm going to eat, sleep, or shower. :)

Winston is doing great. He's already 10 pounds and is a pretty great sleeper for me. I don't want to jinx myself, but he's so good that I've already promised him a car when he's 16--Birdie might be allowed to wash it. He only cries for a few reasons, so it's easy to figure out what he wants: he either still has a burp or he's having his diaper or clothes changed. Otherwise, he's a pretty chill little dude.

My little Bird is doing SO great with Winston. The first thing she does in the morning is say his name and look in his bassinett for him. She asks to hold him all the time and loves to give him hugs and kisses. When they are in the backseat together, I'll ask her, "How's Winston?" If he's awake and not crying, she'll say, "Happy!"

It's a....

It's a boy! Our little man is finally here. After 40 weeks and 3 days, Winston Valor made his appearance on Sunday night. 9 pounds and 7 ounces (almost 2 pounds heavier than Birdie!) and 23 inches. He is already a big boy and is very strong. Birdie is doing so great with him and has already said an unprompted, "I wuv you, Winston."

Here are a few pictures to hold you over until I can get around a little better and start the onslaught. We have a great birth story, and I'll try to find a few minutes to write and share it soon.

My two babies.

 Winston's birthday cake. Big sister helped him blow out the candle.

 Sweet boy.

almost there...

I'm trying to capture a few more pregnancy pictures, because sooner or later, one will be my last. David took this before I went out to my last (for a while) "mommy night out" dinner with all my girls--we had a great time, like always.

When Birdie saw me dressed up, she said, "Cute, momma, cute!" That Bird is the sweetest. And since she was so sweet, I won't even complain about her (non) sleeping last night.

Birdie and Bentley

Grandma came to visit and brought her work dogs, so we had to get a cute picture of Birdie and Bentley!

Birdie did a little backyard exploring today.
