We are in love

The first thing the kids want to do when they get home from school is hold him.

In case you haven't heard...

Henry has arrived.  We've  posted on FB, but there might be a few of you who read my blog that aren't on FB, and still wondering.
Henry came Friday night at 10:35pm.  A whopping 9 lbs. 13oz, and 22 inches long.
We are in love!
I'm not sure when I'll be updating with pics, so if you would like to see some photos and a cute video, you can visit Elliott's blog:  chuckylarms.blogspot.com

40 weeks, and counting...

Whoa big momma. I'm not sure it was a good idea to want to document my growth online. There it is though... my belly at 40 weeks, 1 day. I've gained 43.5 lbs, and don't have any maternity clothes that fit anymore. I'm so big that even my size large shirts don't fit anymore. Still, I shouldn't complain. I'm in great health, and Henry seems to be healthy too. At my appointment on Friday I was almost 4 centimeters dilated, and 80% effaced, so it can't be too far off. Luckily, my doctor won't induce until I hit 42 weeks, and I'm betting Henry will come before then.

Tonight we had a little bit of fun with the kids, guessing the day we think Henry will be born, and how much he will weigh:

Sophie - Saturday, Aug.21 - 45lbs. (yikes!)
Emma - Friday, Aug. 20 - 6 lbs.
Ethan - tomorrow, Aug. 16 - 8 lbs. 2 oz.
Andrew - tomorrow, Aug. 16 - 9 lbs. 8 oz.
Elliott - Tuesday, Aug. 17 - 8 lbs. 8 oz.
Me - tomorrow, Aug. 16 - 9 lbs. 7 oz.

38 weeks

Andrew really wants Henry to be born on his birthday, but that would mean I still have about 4 weeks to go. Here's hoping he comes a little earlier than that.
