Baby Boy!

Oakley Tate Grange was born 2-12-12 at 10:02am weighing 6lb 12 oz, 20 1/2 inches long, 13 inch head 12.5 inch chest!     He was born gently and quickly at home- and so grateful everything went smoothly- he's perfect!  We are so excited to have him a part of our family.  He's beautiful and perfect- he came out very awake and aware, and spends quite a bit of his time (for a newborn!) with eyes wide open learning about his new world!

38 weeks

I love being pregnant. Really, I do. There is something that feels so right about nurtuing and nourishing another  life into being.  I suppose I say this, because I generally feel well, and I enjoy feeling the baby move and move!   It interesting figuring out how to move around when your hips are loose, and your belly sticks out, but it's worth the feel good feelings of pregnancy!  (at least of the 2nd and 3rd trimester!)  Overall, i've had a wonderful pregnancy, which i'm so grateful for.  I was definitely tired in the 1st trimester, but I felt well as long as I ate enough- especially protein, and as long as I slept when I could.       

38 weeks 5 days

Today we went for a walk- to play frisbee golf along the way. It was fun to walk A LOT without really thinking about it because we were tossing the frisbee as we went.  I was pretty sore in the hips by the time we were done walking though!

This is the same time in pregnancy that I had Jade- so after tomorrow- I'll be more pregnant than i've ever been!  IT's alright though- i'm looking forward to seeing when this baby lets us know he is ready to come earthside!  And i'm A-ok  letting him stick around inside for a couple more weeks if he needs to!  ( I don't mind! I could use a few more naps first!)    BUT it is a FULL moon on the 7th!  We shall see if I make it through the full moon!

~35 week Belly Painting

At 35 weeks I was honored to have some mommy friends have a belly painting party!  I love that everything painted is of significant meaning to me during this pregnancy.    My baby has strong roots, thus the tree. :)

Jade's Been Waiting...

....To be a big sister for a while now!
She likes to make sure the baby is ok and listen for the heartbeat, just like the midwife!

Jade will be a big sister in February 2012!
