Andrew Nicholas Taylor

He's here! Andrew Nicholas Taylor was born on 11/29/2010 at 9:48 pm. He was 8 lbs 5 oz and 21 1/2 inches long. He has fine blonde hair and big blue eyes. It has been an amazing week welcoming our new little boy to our home. He has been such a delight and has made Nick and I so happy. Andrew is such a good baby and hardly cries. His favorite time to be awake seems to be about 5:00 am, but otherwise, he is a great sleeper. I can't get enough of this little guy. I never knew how much I could love and adore a person. Nick and I are so grateful to have him in our family.

First family picture!

He loves to cuddle :)

Still waiting..

Just wanted to let everyone know that we haven't had the baby yet. I am going to the doctor tomorrow, but last week I was barely dialated. I guess it will still be a while...

So, I'm starting to get a little nervous because I have been having a lot of Braxton-Hick's contractions. Today is the first time that I noticed how frequenty they were. I had one about 8:20 and then 10:00, 12:00, 2:00, 4:00, 5:30, 7:00. My stomach gets really tight and sometimes they are painful. I am just assuming that they are "false contractions", but I'm wondering if I'm right in my thinking. I have a doctor appointment tomorrow, so I guess we will find out if I am progressing at all. It's hard to believe that I only have 3 1/2 weeks until my due date. I am nervous, but the sleepless nights are starting to get a little exhausting!

Nursery Photos!

On Friday, my mom stopped by my house with a suprise...the baby bedding that I was wanting for the nursey and also a lap that matched! It was so sweet of her and it made it the best day. Nick and I painted the room with the colors of light blue and baby boy blue and then wanted to incorporate the green and brown into the room also. The bedding has all the colors that I wanted and I just LOVE it! Nick and I are going to put some pictures up of some old cars to finish it off and I need to get a chair. Any ideas on some good ones? My mom and I spent the afternoon setting up the room and Nick put the curtains up yesterday. I think that it will be perfect for our little guy.

The quilt that came with the bedding. It gives you a better view of what it all looks like.

Baby Shower/Belly Update

On Thursday, Oct 7th, I had my first baby shower. My friend MA had the party for me and we invited most of the Relief Society girls! We had a great time and MA put a lot of planning into it (I will have more pictures I can post when she sends them to me). The cake was made by my friend Bridgett and the decorations and party favors were made by my friend Megan. My friends Jessica and Val also helped with the planning process. We all had such a fun time and laughed a lot. I got some very cute clothes, books, shoes, socks, blankets and bath toys!! (Opening presents)
(The table decorations...and food). MA made home-made couz-couz (sp?) and we had fruit and punch.

(The BEAUTIFUL cake!!)

.....*32 Week Photo....

I went in for my check up this past Friday and my doctor said "I have a basketball belly". I have been hearing that comment a few times, but this little guy is all in front of me. He has been kicking so much and seems like he hardly sleeps. I can tell that he likes to sleep with his back facing outward because my belly almost always feels hard. The "end of pregnancy" symptoms are starting to kick in such as low back pain, tiredness, the "heavy belly" feeling, and inability to stand for longer than 20 minutes at a time.
It's hard to believe that we only have about 6 weeks left till our baby boy gets here.

Off to Peru!

This past Wednesday, September 1st, was Justin's report day to go to the MTC. He was so excited that the day finally had come. He received his call in April, so waiting for September to come felt like forever to him...however, I felt like the time flew by! I definitely had mixed feelings about the day. Well, honestly, I hate MTC day. It is really hard for me to say good-bye, but I tried to hold back the tears!!
I really like this first picture of Jay though because I think it sums him up all at once. I love his smile and laugh. Nick and I gave Justin a cd player with some speakers for his mission. He was pretty excited because he didn't have one to take.

Drive over to the MTC....happy and sad
Goofy picture!! Jay was getting really sick of his paparatzzi sisters and mother chasing him with a camera all day :)

Walking off to the mission...Bye Justin. I know you are going to be such a great missionary in Peru. WE LOVE YOU!
