Welcome Baby Shea

Baby Shea was born on Monday March 22 at 1850. He weighed in at 7 lbs 15 ounces, and is 51 cm tall! He is the love of my life...
We have been home from the hospital since Thursday, but have had a steady stream of visitors. Lucky for me, Shea is a wonderful tempered little guy and just takes it all in.

db and I are doing fairly well and getting SOME sleep :) Though it looks like tonight might be a tough one. Maybe I should start drinking coffee!

More to come I am sure :)

The Grass is Green

The painting is done in the room now and it looks amazing! Steph used a stencil and some low tack adhesive to get the grass on most of the wall, but did have to free hand paint some of the grass around the corners of the room. It didn't take her as long as I thought and she now has the room cleaned up and ready to go! We will take some better pictures of the whole room in the next couple days, but I wanted to show you the animals with the grass. Don't they look great?

In other news, still no sign of this baby deciding it wants to make it's grand entrance. So, I have been put on the wait list to be induced. The wait list is based on priority, staffing and available beds at the hospital. This means I am basically on-call! It could be any time! Very exciting!

To keep my mind off the wait - I have been cleaning. I hand washed the kitchen floors, washed all the stairs and now am starting on the bathroom floors. My floors have never looked nicer! Soon I am going to run out of cleaning to do.

Hope you are all having a great week!

No Baby Yet... But the Room is Coming Along!

Steph and I made it through the Olympics without any problems or complications. Attending the games was amazing! Some of my favourite moments were (in no particular order):
  • Joannie Rochette skating her short program. The atmosphere in the arena was spectacular and nothing like I have ever felt before.

  • The Women's Gold Medal Hockey game!!! WOO HOOO! It was so great seeing the ladies play so well against their USA rivals!

  • Curling preliminary games - What a great party to be at! So much fun!

  • Steph took most of the pictures, but has forgotten her cable for her camera, so I will post pictures of the Olympics later.

    Well, I am patiently awaiting the arrival of the baby - though, those who are close to me are probably questioning the "patiently" comment. I started acupuncture a couple weeks ago to help induce labour and I believe it has helped prepare my body and baby for the delivery. Now if only it could speed it up! There is no more room for this child to grow! :) Hopefully it will happen any day now.

    Steph is working away at finishing the painting today. Tomorrow is her birthday, so we will give her the day off and take her to Alice in Wonderland and then for some gluten free pizza! Happy Birthday Auntie Stephie!!!
