Thanksgiving trip to South Carolina





So Carl and I were brave and took little Sophie on her first plane trip to visit the family in SC.  Of course she was perfect on the plane....as expected....and a hit in SC

Sophie turns 1 month!!!


I was told you should take a picture every month with something to see how Sophie grows....so I took her picture with her Juneau dog...not the real one.

Sophie is almost 1 month old already....I can't believe it.  Time goes by so fast.  She has been a great baby so far...sleeping at night.  Her mommy loves to sleep and I think she has taken after me on that one.  Here are some new shots of her ....I take a ton every day

This is one of my favorite pictures so far....I am sure there will be many to follow

First Halloween




Sophie was dressed as a little pumpkin for Halloween...we left the house only to introduce her to the neighbors but can't wait for a few years when we can really go trick or treating.  She also had her first doctors apt this week and weighed 7lbs 13 oz.

It may hve been 18 hours of labor and 4 of pushing....that ended up in a c-section but she was worth all the effort....of course...

Yesterday I saw the doctor and no change really from the last visit.  Carl and I went to Patriot Place yesterday at the Gillette Stadium and walked as much as we could.......I'm going to keep walking until I can have this baby.  I am totally ready.....and just waiting.

Lat weekend Carl's sister Dana got married at Castle Hill.  The weekend was fantastic but very tiring for me.  This is us on the Sunday night at the wedding.
This is the little man learning to swim at the beach.  Carl carries him out to the water and he swims in.  A few days ago he caught a bird in mid air and tried to eat it.  we have our hands full with him I have no idea what I am going to do with an infant??
This picture is for my mother who wants to see me "really pregnant".  Here I am at 30 weeks down at the beach behind our house walking the puppy.  Carl and I take him as much as we can and the walking is great for me....like I don't get enough during my 12 hour shifts at the hospital.  It has paid off though because my weight gain has only been 11 pound so far!!
I know I have been slacking but here is the baby girl at 23 weeks.  Her feet are almost over the top of her head....do you think she is going to be tall like her father?

This is my belly at 21 weeks.....I love being pregnant and feeling the little quivers.  This is an amazing thing!!
This is our newest addition to our family.....baby girl???  We are not exactly sure but we should know more in 3 weeks!!!

Lots of things are going on in our lives lately and since we have so many friends and family that are so far away I decided to have a try at this....give me some time I am not so great with this type of stuff
