Welcome Home!

We got to come home yesterday!! (Sunday Aug. 24) It was nice to be outside finally after being shacked up in the hospital for 4 days. Just to be home with the entire family ( Me, Daddy, Ethan and Aiden) and to relax was sooo nice.

Welcome Aiden!!

On Wednesday..August 20, 2008 at 9:42 a.m. Aiden Cole Vassar was born. He came a little earlier than was planned. We had a scheduled c-section for 12 p.m that day. Well, unexpectedly at 4:53 a.m that morning my water broke on it's own. So off we went to the hospital and the section was done at 9:00 instead. Everything went very smoothly and fast. Aiden weighed 7 pounds and 13 ounces. He was 19 1/2 inches long.

39 weeks!

Ok, so I am sitting here tonight doing this blog and I will be having this little boy tomorrow at 12 noon!! Yikes!! It's here already! A bit nervous( maybe more than a bit) and excited all at the same time. Here is a last photo before Aiden comes into the world.

37 weeks and 2 days

It's getti
ng close!! I am feeling a bit nervous with the day getting so close now. More or less about how Ethan i going to be while I am gone and when we bring his new brother home. I am sure he will do just fine but still , I have never been away from him so long. :( We are now just about ready for the arrival, I think!! hahaha

At this weeks appointment things went very well o
nce again. Aiden is beginning to behave during the NST's. Had another ultrasound and they estimated the weight at 6 lbs. 14 ozs. He is growing right on target. He has been giving me some big movements at night these days. Some of them actually feel like contractions when he kicks or moves. I have been having quite a bit of Braxton Hicks.

Nice Ride!!

Here is our new family vehicle!! Ethan thinks it is a big toy right now. This will take some getting used to but, I am sure it will be coming in real handy. I am very proud of this find. I happened to come across this on Craigslist. For the stroller and the infant seat.........$60!!! Seriously!! This goes for $250 in stores. It is practically brand new!

36 weeks and 4 days

I feel like I am growing by the minute! I probably am! Well at this weeks appt. Aiden finally cooperated and did what he was supposed to do in record time and I didn't have to redo the NS test. I also found out that I am 1.5 cm dilated and 70% effaced. So things are beginning to get prepared. Just really don't want to go early since Ethan's party is already in the works!! Hold Tight!!
