Hello! So as promised I am providing pictures of our sweet little angel. This was taken in his little lamb chair, which he enjoys quite a bit. It vibrates! Man, and he is out when the vibrations are going. We could not be happier as parents! It has definitely been a stressful week, but we are so happy. It just takes time to get on a routine! Today has definitely been better and both Josh and I feel that we are starting to get a hang of things. Although, I don't think we are ever going to get completely used to the lack of sleep. Colt definitely has his days and nights mixed up! He sleeps great during the day, but is up every hour or so throughout the night! Thankfully, we have had plenty of help from 3 grandmas (Omie-Josh's mom, Nana-my mom, and Mimi (my grandma). This next pic is from his first bath time! He looks so cute in this pic, although about 5 minutes before he was screaming his head off! He hates bath time!! He definitely did his best to pee on me too, but he missed ;) However, Josh has not been so lucky! He has been shot a couple of times! I guess he will get faster at changing that diaper ;)

Doesn't he look really sweet in this pic?! Ha! He was getting ready to go to his first doctor's appointment, which as you can see he wasn't too happy about! Everything checked out healthy at the doctor!

Well, that's about all for now! Breastfeeding is going alright...it's definitely a lot of time and effort, but it's well worth it. I hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday! Until next time....God bless!!

So here is a pic from tonight after dinner....and the last one I'll post. Very swollen, very big, about to pop!! 
Momma is here! Yep, my mom came yesterday along with Mimi in order to be here when baby Colt is born! I am so happy they are here because I get to have fun my last couple of days being pregnant! Wednesday is the big day...I go in to be induced at 7am...doctor says I should be having a baby by 10 that night...I really hope it is sometime before that though!

As far as progression goes, I am still only 1 cm dilated as of Wednesday; however the doctor stripped my membranes (basically separated the uterus from the cervix), which is supposed to get things going. Well, it definitely worked because I have had a lot of interesting things happening that I'm not gonna go into detail about. All I can say is that it can come at any time, but I think I will still go till Wednesday...we shall see! 

Please keep us in your prayers as we approach the big day...the next post will be full of pics of our new son!! :)

Enjoying my sleep now...

You may be wondering why I have this picture up....no this isn't what I currently look like obviously. However, this is the picture that will hang on my fridge after 2 weeks is done. I can't even believe that it was possible for me to look like this just a year ago compared to what I look like now :)

Anyway, before the exercise and diet regimen come into play, I've got 2 more weeks till this bundle of joy presents himself to the world!! I had my 37 week doctor's appointment on Wednesday, but no news to report in terms of further dilation. I'm still hangin in there at 1 cm. That's okay though because I still have some things I would like to get done before Colt gets here (project nesting is still underway). Not to mention, my Mom is still needing to get some things done at work before she leaves for 2 weeks, and I really need to have the support!! However, we did officially set the date of induction for May 19th! I'm excited!!!

As far as pregnancy goes, I am definitely not one of those women that really enjoyed the process of being pregnant. The body goes through many changes and I definitely was not prepared for what it took to grow another human! Not to be negative about the whole experience, because of course there was the wonderful moments when you get to feel your baby kicking and moving around! I guess what I'm trying to say is that I won't be rushing into #2 ;)

Have a wonderful Thursday! I will be having a great weekend full of barbeques with great friends! Even though Manhattan is not my ideal place to live, I have definitely enjoyed the people that I have grown very close to while being here! God bless!
