Well now that I have something to blog about I love posting updates on our little family. I love being a mom. Grace has brought so much joy to Mike and I. We never imagined how much love we can have for this little girl. Here are a few moments that Mike and I have captured during the week. ENJOY!
7 pounds 5 ounces and 20 inches long ....so much for the prediction that grace was going to be between 8 and 9 pounds. :) She was born on Thursday, November 6th at 3:52pm.
Grace was born with a lot of BLACK BLACK hair. I had quite a few nurses ask me curiously when they brought her back from the nursery if I was "Grace's mom"? Hopefully she will look a little like me one day.....
Well, we are about 8 days away from my due date and time seems to be moving WAY too slow. Up until last week I was feeling awesome, but the anxiousness has finally set in. Hopefully my next post will be pictures of a beautiful little baby girl!!
AND if someone at work asks me if I am having twins ONE MORE TIME...I swear I am going to freak out!!!
In the beginning when I found out that we are having a girl I was sooo against having a color pallet of PINK PINK PINK but.....after I started buying things and putting the room together....guess what color came out full throttle - YEP you guessed it PINK!! I am in love with the little clothes we have received and the room we have put together. I will post pictures of the baby's room as soon as I get it all put together. I love leaving people on the edge of their seats. LOL Here are some pictures of the baby shower my mother in law and sister in law put together. Mike and I are so blessed to have such wonderful family members.
34 weeks pregnant and growing everyday...
My nieces, Hannah and Lauren, came to help out.
Here is a very rare shot of the Redington girls. Linda, we missed you!!
My mom and mother-in-law put together a surprise baby shower at Aspen Grove. The shower will really help prepare us for our little girl's entrance into the world in November. This was a day to remember, especially since I felt so incredibly spoiled!!
In July, the Vance Family congregated at Aspen Grove for a week full of FUN FUN FUN!! Approximately 60-65 family members attended. Mike and I loved every second of it and we look forward to taking our baby girl there in three years.
I have finally joined the blogging ranks. I have a lot of people asking for "Fat" pictures....so here I am in ALL MY GLORY. I am now 27 weeks. This picture was taken while we were at a week-long family reunion at Aspen Grove Family Camp (during the July 24th holiday week.)
