If you follow me on Facebook, you know that I had my baby today. It was a whirlwind of a day. I'll share the story later when I can think straight. We are so happy to finally have our stubborn little one here.

Owen McMahan
12:01 am
7 lbs 9 ozs
19.5 inches

Ethan was a trooper today. He went with me to my appointment at 11, didn't take a nap and finally crashed about 10 mins before his brother arrived. He was such a good boy though. He is going to be one happy camper when he finds out he has a brother!

Zann is pretty excited/proud of the new arrival!

Aunt Amy is pretty excited too! This is probably the best picture was have so far of Owen. He looks so much like Ethan. He has a ton of dark hair. I'll try to post more pictures as we take them. We were all so tired after a long labor. We're just so happy our little one has arrived happy and healthy! Now I'm going to have to change the name of my blog!

While we're waiting on number 2 to make his/her apperance, we've been having some fun. Ethan is such a little goofball and is going to be a great big brother.
This was a few weeks ago. Ethan went down for his nap late and I had to wake him up at 5:30. I set him in the chair awake and started dinner. I go to check on him and he was sacked out! This NEVER happens. We have a hard enough time getting him to sleep in his own bed let alone anywhere else.
Such a goofball...just like his dad.
We're in a state of wait now for this baby. I'm having contractions and dilated but number 2 just likes my belly way too much. No induction is scheduled...yet. I'm due on Friday and my doctor doesn't want me to go over. That's good news. If labor doesn't happen on it's own by Friday, it will be forced and we'll finally get to meet our baby!

We have been so busy lately. I feel like it's been one thing after another. When will life slow down? Not soon I'm guessing. Zann wanted to hang out with Ethan this morning so they went to the zoo while I went and got a pedicure. I'm pretty sure I got the better deal although I'm thinking maybe I should've gone to the zoo to walk around a little and get this baby moving!
Ethan has been putting his hands on his hips the past couple of days. It's hilarious. I asked him where he learned it and he said, "From Peter Pan mom." Duh!

We helped Amy move into her apartment last week. Guess the boys were goofing off taking pictures a little.
This is from the zoo this morning. Ethan loves to look through the scale-a-scope. Wonder if he actually sees anything. Doubtful.
These pics were taken on Zann's phone so sorry for the low quality. Well I'm off to finish things up in the nursery. Finally all the furniture is in there...now to hang things on the wall...

Zann went to Boston at the end of July and these are just some pictures he took while he was there.  He went for a dermatology conference so he didn't have much free time.  I'd like to go back with him sometime.  I loved Washington D.C. and I'm sure I'd love Boston as well.

Fun With Friends

Tara, Suzanne and I have been trying to have lunch for some time now.  Our schedules always seem to conflict though.  We managed to get together last week and had a great time.  Of course Suzanne had to have the pizza guy take our picture.  I'm glad she did.  These are definately frame worthy!
Tara is about 4 weeks behind me!  It's been fun being PG with my BFF!

While Dad's Away...

Zann went to Boston for a dermatology conference last week. He was gone Wednesday through yesterday and boy did we miss him. My mom came up and stayed with me for most of that time and we got a ton of work done! We cleaned out the guest bedroom/craft room to make way for baby, got most of my JBF stuff ready for the sale, made a trip to Goodwill to drop off and lots more. We were busy the entire time she was here. I always like it when my mom comes b/c she pushes me to get things done! We managed to squeeze in some fun things too like take maternity pics and get snocones so it wasn't all work.
My goodwill load. We had a ton of stuff that was just taking up space. It feels nice to purge!

A little of my JBF pile. I've still got a few more things to add to it.

I'll have Boston pictures soon. I just wanted to share what we've been up to. We have a long list to accomplish today so I better get to it!
