First Bath

This is what it sounds like at our and my mom cooing over James:-)

Did you see the smile at the end? He loves every second of it!

Doesn't he already look so much bigger?

He is Here.....!!!

James Francis Barrett was born this morning at 9:36 am. He weights in at 6 lbs 14 ozs and is 19 inches long. He is perfect!! I think he looks just like Stella which means he looks just like Tony.

Today could not have went any better and I am trying to enjoy every last second of baby time. I think I held him all day long. I need to get some sleep but will post more when I get a minute....

A Room for James

All of the boxes in the nursery have (finally!) been emptied! I really feel ready to bring a baby home. I feel like this has taken weeks and weeks to get ready. Papa and Gigi have driven over almost every weekend and they have been busy, busy helping with the nursery. I swear every time they walk into our house, they have a big package of diapers....I guess we are used to prepping for twins:-)

We are stocked and ready to go!

I do love my new glider:-)

I guess we are keeping with the "Welcome to the Jungle" theme around here...

Bowling Party

Today we had a very fun Bowling Party to go to.

Some of these kiddos have been together in school since their two year old program!!

Here is Sarah, Brigid, Stella and Jonathan in the pool in 2007...

...and here they are in 2009!

Thomas and all the ladies!

Stella, Jonathan and Thomas enjoying the cake.

How cute!

Trophy Day

Yesterday Papa and Gigi drove over from Clearwater one last time before the baby comes. I have this master 'To Do' list that they helped me accomplish. But before we did anything, Papa and Tony watched Thomas get his football trophy and Gigi watched Stella at dance.

Thomas scored three touchdowns and was able to capture two of the other teams flags.

Thomas was so proud of his golden trophy!!

We also picked up my new glider so the nursery is pretty much done. I have three boxes to go through that were in there from the move. Once they are unpacked, I will post some pics of the nursery. I love the way it turned out. I was sitting in there last night, rocking the bassinet and trying to imagine baby James:-)

Tick, tick, tick...

Does anyone else hear that countdown? I think it is 13 days now....THIRTEEN DAYS:-)

We are trying to finalize the name situation and I have enlisted an expert. Head over to Swistle's Baby Name Blog and put in your two cents here.


Our friend Lynn brought her new puppy over. The twins are in love with little Shay-Shay!!

Can you blame them??

Rising Lion

My husband has an internet radio show and tonight he had Danny Dread on the show from Rising Lion. Danny is a long time friend and we were lucky enough to have Danny play our wedding five years ago. The show was amazing and I loved hearing Danny play. You can watch the archived show here.

That Baby Ticker is Freaking Me Out!!

A couple of weeks ago, I added a baby ticker to my it is freaking me out.

Today it says "21 Days"

Twenty one days??

That is soon! I am not sure if it is a good thing or a bad thing to know the date that your baby is coming? Of course, there is always the option that Baby Boy comes earlier.

Earlier? Earlier than 21 days??

Honestly, I am ready. I still need some things for the nursery but emotionally, I am ready. I want to meet James. I want to bring him home and see how the dynamics of our family change. I want to see how he fits into our family. I also want to see if I feel 'done'. I have have some people tell me that when their last child was born, they felt done; they knew they were not having anymore children. Today, I do not feel done....Tony and I agreed this would be our last for many my head knows we are 'done' but my heart does not. I have no idea how I will feel after James comes:-)

As for that ticker...if it suddenly disappears, you know what happened:-)

My Rock Star

This is what Stella does when she should be napping. She stays in her room and changes her clothes one hundred times. This is what she came out wearing yesterday. She told me it was her outfit for hanging out with rock stars...huh?? Is four too young to be a groupie??

New Hair

I have a list of things to do before the baby comes and like any person who has already had children, doing things that I may never get the chance to do again is a priority! So, yesterday I spent three hours getting a great hair cut and color. Yep, three hours!! I love it....the stylist even blew it out so I had to take pictures...she used two different round brushes and a flat iron so it is safe to say that beauty routine will never happen again in the five minutes I have to get ready in the morning:-)

Awww...can you see the baby gear in the background??
