Weekly Update: Spring Arrives and More

The last couple of weeks has seen Spring finally arrive in Wisconsin. It has been amazingly nice out with a couple of days even getting up into the 70's. However, the arrival of Spring also means the arrival of baby. The countdown is now at t-minus about 5 weeks. At this point we get to start going to the doctor once a week. Also, if baby was born tomorrow it would not be considered premature. Whoa. Lets try to stay in there for a few more weeks. For the record, I believe that May 3rd will be the due date(the official due date is April 28th), and the baby will be 7lbs 10oz's. Make your guess known in the new polls!!!

A couple of weekends ago, we got to go to Spring Valley for a baby shower. Thank you lots to everybody for the generous gifts. In addition, last weekend Elizabeth's Mom came down to help us get the baby room ready. This was a huge help. And while it is still not quite done, it is looking much better (It also gave me a chance to mess with stitching photos together.) For those of you who have seen the disaster that was the baby's room before will hopefully will be impressed:

Baby has become a little less violent in its movements. We think this is because it is running out of space to sprawl. In fact in an effort to get more room, baby has pushed out Elizabeth's belly button from an innie to if not an outtie yet at least a flatty. However, it is still very active and has definitely mastered the bladder squeeze. This makes for some restless nights for Elizabeth, but its all done in love.


  1. You look beautiful, Elizabeth! Great photos.

  2. Elizabeth, you look so placidly beautiful as you sit on the swing. I can't wait to see you and meet baby. :)
