Two Months

And here he is at two months. We had Sam's two month check up with our pediatrician the other day. He is 12 pounds now and 24 1/2 inches long. He is in the 95th percentile for hight! Jared is very excited about that--he thinks he's gonna be a basketball player, but he can also be a bass player. Sam is getting so much fun. He'll give me a big smile when I get right in his face, and when Jared talks Sam perks right up and looks around for his daddy. It is so sweet. He slept through the night 4 times in a row, but last night he woke up around 4:30 to eat. Oh well.
Thank you tot hose who have been leaving comments. I enjoy reading them and I love you all!

Can you guess which baby is the newborn and which is the month and a half year old?

The one on the left is my new nephew, Charles Marshall Bigler. He was born on November 25, weighing in at 10 lbs, 12 oz abd 23 inches long! He is home from the hospital now and is doing great . This is David's son, the 4th Bigler boy and David is such a proud daddy.

Me and the Baby at 39 weeks

Here he is--in all his glory. I think he wants out because even though it's gotten pretty tight in there he still manages to kick and stretch. This little boy is all Jared and I have been able to think about for the last 3 months because we've been trying to get everything ready. At the beginning of the pregnancy we though "nine months is a long time--we have plenty of time." So then nothing was done, of course until right here at the end. BUT since we've got the bassinet set up and the car seat installed and my hospital bag packed I feel much better AND my blood pressure has even gone down.

I can't believe this used to be me! I remember how excited I was to be showing and now I can't escape the stares and comments from my friends and even perfect strangers.
I HAVE enjoyed the experience of being pregnant--I always knew I wanted to feel this. To feel the baby inside me and to feel a bond with someone I've never seen and to experience this miracle. But I am just so ready to be done with the pregnant stage and get to the birth stage and then the parenting stage!
