Sweet Sarah

     I have to say that I think we were blessed with the sweetest baby ever born.  Of course I could be a little biased, but I'm sticking with my opinion.  Seriously, this baby is so easy!  She doesn't fuss very often, she sleeps through all the Eli noise, and she is super cuddly....We couldn't ask for a better baby!  I am so thankful for such a sweet healthy baby girl.  I am also SO thankful that Eli has fallen in love with her.  He has been so sweet to her!  He kisses her and always wants to check on her when she is sleeping.  I love it!  God is so faithful to answer a worried momma's prayers about healthy babies, sweet big brothers, and a great husband that takes up my slack at work (and at home) while I adjust to this new addition.  Now, on to the fun!!  Here is my sweet girl and her silly brother (he was ready to go play instead of taking pictures) and their handsome Daddy!

Welcome to the world baby girl!

Meet Sarah Kate!

Our BIG baby girl arrived last Friday morning.
She weighed 10 pounds and was 21 inches long.  I have no idea where all of her dark hair came from, but she has an entire head full of almost black hair!  If I hadn't seen her as soon as she was born I would swear the hospital gave me the wrong baby!
Everyone is doing well and Eli is the best big brother!

   I cannot believe how fast time has flown over the past few months!  It seems like we have been super busy, but yet doing nothing much at the same time.  So, here's a rundown of what's been happening around here....
     My sweet boy turned 3!  I can't believe how fast the past 3 years have flown by.  I am so proud of what a smart, sweet, all around awesome kid he is.  Of course, I know I'm biased but that's ok.  I LOVE this kid!  We had Eli's 3rd birthday party a few weeks ago.  I would upload pictures, but our internet stinks and is too slow!  It was a Star Wars party and it turned out pretty cute if I must say so!
     The sweet girls at work also gave me a baby shower for baby girl.  I got tons, and I mean TONS of cute girl clothes and bows!  So fun!!  Although, I think she will be bald just like Eli was!  We will see....SOON!
     Speaking of baby girl, she is coming in 3 more days!  That's right, 3 DAYS!  HOLY COW!  I am excited but so nervous at the same time.  I debated for months on doing a repeat c-section or trying VBAC.  My first section was super easy but yet I still kept thinking how awesome it would be to avoid major surgery if at all possible.  Well, Clint and I have talked it over for weeks now and we have done 2 size estimates to help me determine what I want to do.  Apparently, I grow HUGE children.  Now I know that the size of the baby is really not necessarily a determination of a successful VBAC, but I believe it can't hurt either.  At 36 weeks baby girl was measuring 40 weeks 2 days....pretty large.  Eli was very large even arriving at 37 weeks (8 lb. 4 oz) so I am expecting this baby to be a good size also.  Anyway, to make this long story shorter, I opted for a repeat c-section and I am scheduled for this Friday.  Yikes!  Please pray for a safe delivery for everyone involved.  And pray for my nerves over the next few days while I wait!
     So, I guess that's it in a nutshell.  Busy, but not too productive.  One final all you women out there who claim you get a burst of energy right before delivery.....ha!  I don't believe you!  I have been so exhausted that I can barely make it off the couch!  Seriously.  It's terrible!  But it will be worth it in the end!
