Almost a week...

Well, it has been almost a week since Mary Grace was born. God has blessed us with a very sweet little girl. She is an angel. Judson is a great big brother. He wants to know when she is going to wake up and play with him. He likes to check on her, but I can't get him to hold her. Neal has been so amazing. He has been so helpful, so patient, and so understanding. Saturday when we got home we realized that none of her clothes fit her. He went out and bought her some premie clothes, some blankets, something really soft to support her in the car seat. He said he knew he was in trouble. He wanted to buy everything for her. She already has us wrapped. We took her to the doctor yesterday to have her weight checked. She dropped down to 5lbs 5oz. when we left the hospital. Yesterday she was up to 5lbs 9oz. It was time for her to eat while we were at the doctor so she was crying. Judson asked why she was crying. Neal was holding her and said it was because she was hungry. Judson said "Dad, just put her right here (pointing to his chest) that's where her milk is." That gave us a good laugh!!

Here are a few pictures.

Home Sweet Home

We made it. We are finally home. Mary Grace and Tami are both doing great. Mary Grace is taking her pre-game nap. Once she is up for the game I will get her dressed in her game day outfit and post some pictures. We are blessed to have such good friends and family. Tami and I want to thank everyone for their kindness this past week. War Eagle!!

Just Chillin

I think the picture says it all. Mary Grace is just chillin at Flowers. She is not even waking up to watch Oregon St. whoop up on USC. I know two blogs in one day. I just can not help myself. I really need to go back to work so I want be tempted to blog. Got to go, half time is over.


Amazing Grace

How sweet the sound of Mary Grace's little grunting noises. God has blessed us with such a beautiful daughter. 9/24/08 at 7:33 am a 5 lb 13 oz brown headed miracle arived in our life. I did not think I would be able to love another child like I love Judson. How wrong I was. All I want to do is hold her next to my chest. Tami and Mary Grace are going well. Mary Grace has done a great job breast feeding. This is my first blog experiance. I am blogging on Tami's behalf. I guess I could get use to blogging and watching soap operas all day, not a chance.

Judson's tea party

Judson had a tea party at school today. They have been working on Manners the past two weeks at school and learning the letter "T". They had to dress up for the party. They all looked so cute. They did a little dance for us and then the boys pulled out the chairs and helped the girls sit down, then pushed their chairs up for them. I was so proud of Judson!!

One more week...

One more week until our precious baby girl is here!! I had my last Dr. visit today. My c-section is scheduled for next Wednesday, Sept.24th. I am very excited and ready. Although I feel a little emotional about how Judson is going to handle everything. He seems very excited about his little sister. He wanted to buy her a baby doll, so I took him to the store and let him pick out a baby doll for her. He picked out a very soft doll and came home and put it in her bassinet. He has the biggest heart for a four year old. I pray his love for his little sister will grow even more when he actually meets her. I pray I will have the energy to really enjoy these next few days with him. I pray God will help me be very sensitive to his needs once she gets here. I praise God that I do not have to go through this without him. He promises to be with me and to give me strength when I am weak.

I can't wait to post pictures of our precious baby girl!!
