2 Week Appointment

Virginia had her two week appointment on Wednesday. I can’t believe how fast the time is flying by! She was still 20.5 inches long but only weighed 7lbs 11.5 oz which is not quite back up to her birth weight. She looks healthy and hydrated though, so the doctor wasn’t worried. So she’s still just […]

For Jade

Sweet Jade is the daughter of Cathy, my midwife. Last month I had the pleasure of photographing her wedding which ended being at the hospital where her Fioncee was admitted due to unforseen health problems. They both insisted on continuing with the ceremony as planned with one slight location change. Jade has been so patient […]

V’s First Photo Shoot- 5 Days Old

I still have a few more shots I will have to get tomorrow. I got much too tired just doing these. Dave took the some of them and I did the editing. I also did portraits of her with each of the kids but I don’t have the energy to work on those right now. […]

4 Days Old- All Dressed Up

Virginia got to wear her first dress today. The occasion was a lovely party at my midwife’s home for all her moms both pregnant and those who have given birth. We got to share with the pregnant moms the things we liked/disliked about our births and the things we would do again or do differently. […]

The Epic Story

Well, my silly girl has her days and nights mixed up so I decided to take advantage of the fact that she is sound asleep to write out my epic length birth story. It was an amazing out-of-body experience and I hope you enjoy reading all about it. Virginia’s Birth Saturday morning I had started […]

Pictures!

I’m sorry these took me so long to post. Brandi took over 400 pictures and it was hard to choose which ones to post. 😉 I think Brandi is well on her way to being an awesome photographer! She has a very creative eye and was really able to capture the emotion and joy of […]

I Can Walk!

I’m so happy to report that I can walk again today. What a relief! I was so tired of being cooped up in my bedroom all the time. Other than seeing the gastly mess my family had made of my home while I was thus cooped up, it was nice to get out and walk […]

Bored Out of My Mind!

Oh my goodness. I don’t know how bedrest moms do it. I am soooo tired of hanging out in my room. It’s so painful to walk anywhere, so I mostly stick to my room unless I need to use the restroom. I’m starting to go stir crazy. LOL I’m tired of being on the computer […]

Update

So sorry I haven’t been posting. I woke up with a lovely blog post in my head yesterday and never made it to the computer to post it. I was going to post that Virginia had actually dropped. I was pretty happy about that. But before I could post something lovely here, something else had […]

Not Done

Five days until EDD day and the gazebo roof is still not done. Dave worked on it for four hours last night, but thanks to some not-so-good screws he was unable to finish it, even with his brother’s help. I’m sure he will be working on it again tonight, which stinks for me, because I […]

No Baby this Weekend

I originally told my brother that the only way I’d photograph his wedding is if it put me into labor. Alas all I personally got out of it was pain. I couldn’t walk or even hardly move all day yesterday because my muscles were so cramped up, and as far as contractions go, not a […]
