Welcome Lilly Grace Evelyn

Sorry I haven't updated but I haven't had a chance. Lilly was born on March 18, 2008. Now we're trying to adjust to life at home with 2 babies so hopefully I can get in a routine and find time to post more. She's doing great and big brother Connor is very gentle with her.

Enjoy a few pictures of Lilly and one of Connor opening his Easter basket:)

Almost There

Well I only have 9 more days until my due date! I am so excited about that. I went to the Dr yesterday for my weekly appt and she told me I'm still only 50% effaced and 1cm dilated but was able to strip some of my membranes. I'm going back on Monday and they will try to strip them again if I'm a little more dilated. I pray I am. She did mention that she could bring me in on March 17th to induce because she will be on call at the hospital. The other 2 dr's I mentioned induction too over the last few weeks were like "you have to be 41wks and probably won't get induced til the wk after Easter". Of course the dr I'm seeing on Mon is the one who told me that, but I have news for him...I'm going to tell him my primary OB said she could induce the wk before because I will still be over my due date, and she will be on call and I want HER to deliver if at all possible!!! If I have to leave a msg for her directly I will. lol I do pray I go into labor on my own though and don't need to be induced. I've heard varying stories about it. March 17 is my little cousin Kara's bday. Her brother is Connor, so if Lilly is born on her bday, then my cousin Lisa and I will have our sons with the same name and our daughters with the same birthday. lol Lisa keeps pushing for Lilly to be born that day, so she might get her wish. ha ha

In other news, Connor is getting so big. He cracks me up with some of the things he does. He loves to plug his ears to hear how sounds are distorted. He used to scream when he plugged his ears, but now he just listens to the sounds around him. He also likes to say "Hi" really fast and get right up in your face when he does it. He's a total ham. He's been trying to eat with a spoon on his own. He does ok with it but boy does he make a mess! I don't have any new pictures uploaded to post. sorry :(
