Project Life: Week 4

Week 4: January 24 - January 30

January 24-Me and my little men. Not very often do you see me in a picture, since a majority of the time I'm the one behind the camera.
January 25- 39 weeks now. Waiting for our little girl to make her way into this big world of ours. Been experiencing lots of Braxton hicks, back pain and lots of pressure .. hoping she comes soon.
January 26-Daddy picked out the boys shirts the other day while we were out shopping. Decided to get a snapshot of the boys wearing them. Plus, they always make the best subjects for picture taking.January 27- During the night I started contracting, so this morning I thought for sure we'd be heading to the hospital to have baby girl. I put the boys "I'm the Big brother" shirts on, had my bag packed .. BUT, my contractions ended up not being as strong towards the afternoon, so we stayed home.January 28- She's here. We welcomed Neveyah Jaelynn this morning at 5:49 a.m. Weighing 7 lbs 7 oz. 19 1/2 inches long. She arrived on her due date! After my water breaking at 3 a.m., I contracted for the next 3 hours. I started pushing at 5:40, within 5 minutes, 3 pushes later, she greeted the world with her beautiful blue eyes, lots of dark hair, and adorable dimples she got from Daddy.January 29- Our family. We used to be 4, but now we're 5! We love our brand new baby girl!
January 30- Our precious little angel, sleeping.

The kids had fun getting their shoes all muddy while Mommy trailed behind trying not to go into labor.January 19-We're winding down to the last few days before baby gets here and I wanted to get a picture with the boys and the belly.

Daddy, and Ty threw rocks in the water while Preston took a power nap in the car.January 21-Preparing for our little ones arrival. Packed the baby bag today for the hospital.

We took them to the park afterwards.January 23-Today, I made the boys their shirts for when the baby arrives, which they'll wear at the hospital!

"We're Having a Girl" LO

With our little one soon to arrive, I wanted to get some LO's done so I don't fall to far behind once she gets here. The first LO I've done is my 18 week ultrasound. This is when we found out we were expecting our little princess!
I scanned and printed out copies of the original ultrasound, (I won't have to worry about the pictures fading in the years to come), the originals I placed in a protective clear envelope which I attached to the back of the layout.

Supplies: Patterned paper: K&Company; Swirly paper: K&I Memories-Pop Culture Gossip White; Chipboard Butterfly: American Crafts; Chipboard mini-tree: Maya Road; Foam letters for Title: American Crafts-Thickers (Daiquiri); Ribbon: Offray; Date stamp: Hampton Art-Creative Cafe; Pink paint & glitter: Making Memories; Ink: StazOn; other: gems, glue dots, white cardstock.

Project Life: Week 1

Week 1: January 3 - January 9

January 3- Catching up and colds. We've all been sick for over a week. Ty ty is the worse and his cold doesn't want to go away. I've been busy catching up on Project 365 last year, organizing, ordering & printing pics. January 4- Preperation. Today, I got a box of Dreft and started washing all the baby's things. Brought out the bassinet so I could clean it up and get it ready for her arrival. Getting very excited.. 28 days until due date.
January 5- I was taking pictures of the boys before bed and Ty randomly asks, "Will you take a picture of my butt?" So, I laugh, say.. "ooook." Of course, Prez has to do what brother does, only he kept his booty covered.

January 6- "Mommy, I want seee-we-ole" So, I poured Prez a bowl of cereal, 2 minutes later, I found him passed out in his chair. He had only a few bites before he was out. It was so cute.

January 7- Another masterpiece. I enjoy watching the boys play with their blocks. It's fun to see what they create with them. They worked together to build this, "circle tower."

January 8- We finally had our Christmas. After almost 2 weeks since the "real" Christmas day, the kids opened all their presents.

January 9- Titan loves doing "logical" related activities. He spent over an hour playing with his Handy Manny workshop that he had got from Meemaw for Christmas.
