Thanksgiving Weekend

It was a busy weekend. We went to Loveland to have dinner with my sisters, my niece, her husband, my great-niece, her husband and their 23 month old. Samantha won't be the baby of the family much longer! A rare quiet moment

Rocco gained experience of being around a little one

Aunt Louise and Uncle Melvin sent gifts from Maine. So tiny - so adorable.

Tito put together the crib for our house

I sewed.

I finally felt Kaiden kick last night! For weeks everyone else has felt him, but when I get close, he would stop, but not last night. It was a very neat experience!

The title comes from Nathan's e-mail to me with these pictures. They came when I was feeling down and gave me great joy. Thank you, Nathan and Stacy!

Kaiden has his foot in his mouth - not unlike me!

Wow! Technology is truly amazing - just look at that face!

First Gifts

Carrie and Katja have been best friends forever, so Carrie told Katja about becoming an auntie and Katja told her stepmom, Ruthie and Ruthie sent these adorable booties and cap. (There is one more surprise for later).

The proud auntie giving the gift to Stacy!

3rd Trimester

Stacy is in her third trimester and feeling large, but as my friend Lori told her, you can get bigger. Everyone is still healthy. The baby is very active. The kids have the crib and changing table put together. I have a crib (not put together) courtesy of a friend of Stacy who was getting rid of baby items. I am sewing, but need to step that up and get everything done. Plans are underway for the baby shower. The due date is only 83 days away. I know Stacy will think those days will last forever - especially the last 10-14, but Kaiden will be here before we know it.
