And Lo, There Were More Pictures, And It Was Good...

Hey all,

Paul here. I CANNOT believe Jonas is already one week old. Yowsers! Anyhoooo, we have some more pictures for everyone to enjoy of Jonas' first fantastic week. Find them at:

By the way, everyone here is doing well. We are slowly figuring it all out. (Ok, maybe not "it all") Most of it has to do with him eating well... the first few days were good, then he had a bad day or two, but we changed some things and I think we're on the right track now! Easier feeding = more sleep,less frustration = happier mom and dad. Enjoy the pics.

OK OK OK! You want pictures, you got pictures! Go to: !!!


p.s. - Everyone is still doing great!

p.p.s. - (I've used waaay too many exclamation points in this post!)

Easy Peasy!

Believe it or not, this picture was taken about 30 minutes before Jonas was born during a full-on contraction. I'm not even sure she knew she was having one (contraction, not baby :) )Let me just say that epidurals are amazing!

By the way, anesthesiologists and other medical professionals have my complete and utter respect... I could never do what they do!

No Baby Yet

Hey everyone, Paul here. Thought I'd give everyone a quick baby update. Our due date is tomorrow, the 19th, but no baby yet. We were scheduled to induce on the 20th, but Sarah and I decided that we didn't want to induce that early unless it was medically necessary. We pushed our induction date back to the 28th. Sarah has been having contractions most of today with varying intensity. Hopefully that means we are on our way to having a beautiful baby boy within the next few days!

new camera

We got a new camera! Our old one wasn't bad and it worked OK, but you would have to wait f-o-r-e-v-e-r in order to be able to take another picture. We decided that when you have a baby, you don't have that kind of time to capture the moment. So, much to Paul's excitement, we bought a new camera. Here are some pictures we've taken with it so far...

By the way, no baby yet. We will definitely keep you all updated. Our due date is May 19, and if this boy doesn't arrive by then, our doctor is going to induce on the 20th. We would much rather him come on his own, so you can join us in praying that he will come in the next week or so!

We have rose bushes on the side of our house. I don't know how to care for rose bushes, and last summer basically chopped them down pretty low. They must have liked that because there are probably over 100 roses on our pretty!

The belly at 38 weeks.

We went on a date to a nice steakhouse. It is called Lisa West's Double Nickle, and evidently it is the 8th best steakhouse in Texas...who knew that Lubbock, TX would have a ranked steakhouse. It was really fun to have an expensive meal before the baby arrives. I have the best husband!

This is about how I am feeling some days!
