My Beautiful Girl

So Evey has arrived...and she is amazing. She is sweet and wonderful - I'm fascinated by her long delicate fingers and crazy monkey toes. Her features seem to me much more feminine and delicate than big brother Maddox. She was 7 lb 13 oz - and that was 10 days early. So she would definitely have been a big girl if we had delivered her at the time Maddox was born (2 days late). Though I don't think she would have quite managed his 9 lb 9 oz!

We are thrilled to be home! Maddox absolutely adores his little sister...though we are working on our noise volume. I can't say enough about how well Maddox did this week with all the drama. He has really been fantastic. And after spending so much time in the hospital with her - and only brief visits from Maddox...he looks ENORMOUS to me now.

So anyways - here are a few snapshots from Evey's hospital adventure....

The Big Day

So tomorrow morning we check into the hospital to usher Evey into the world. Here are a few pics of her bedroom...still not finished but we've accomplished quite a bit considering everything else that is going on. I hope she likes it!

Hopefully Jay will be spreading the good news tomorrow by late morning or early afternoon.... I sure hope she is just like this one...


Well - perhaps with slightly less violent tendencies. :-)

Big Boy Room

We have been so busy trying to get the house ready for the new addition! Maddox's room is coming along nicely - just needs some finishing touches here and there. He is very proud of his room. Here are a few pics of his new red digs.




Such a big boy! I can't believe it.

Recently snapped photos I enjoy...

I have long admired this tree - and wanted to photograph it before it gets cut down - as so much of nature seems to be disappearing quickly around here. I finally made a point the other day to stop and take pictures of it.


I had also been meaning to grab some pics of the beautiful wildflowers nearby...so I stopped there as well.
