Michael Owen Emery


December 7 started out with my doctor's appointment and that led me to the hospital. I was 7cm dilated so my doctor decided to get things moving along. By the time I got to the hospital I was having some mild cramping/contractions. I soon got my epidural and just waited comfortably. I then got some pitocin and things started to progress quickly. Next thing I knew it was time to push. A couple pushes later and we had a baby. Very smooth, pleasant experience. We are thrilled to add him to our family and Evan is a great big brother. Still adjusting of course. Things are new and different around here but it shouldn't take long to get used to our new little bundle. Here are some pictures of our new little munchkin.

Christmas Decor


Finally got everything decorated yesterday inside and out. I didn't go too crazy decorating because I know the more I put out the more I have to put away later. That could be difficult with the new munchkin around. I also put a tree in Evan's room. He really likes it. We are definitely festive!

with the Christmas lights.

Baby Update


We saw the doctor today and had our last look at the baby before it arrives. It is measuring small which is good for me. It's not predicted to be really big but just in case we are scheduled to be induced December 13 unless it decides to come sooner. Very exciting! Eric is home for Thanksgiving tomorrow and Friday so I'm sure he'll be completing projects on his to do list all weekend. We can't wait to meet the new Emery!

Busy Preparing for Baby


I have gotten so behind in my blogging! I have some Halloween pictures and a couple pictures of the baby's room. My mom was here for a month helping me get lots of things done around here before munchkin comes. I haven't taken any pictures of Evan's room yet but we hung a wallpaper boarder of trucks in there and organized his toys with some under the window shelves. It came out great! In the baby's room we painted a 12 inch stripe around the room and hung up turtles all around. I am very pleased with how everything came together. We also did several loads of laundry so the baby will have nice clean clothes. Lots of neutral things and some of Evan's clothes in case it's a boy.

I've had a pretty good start on Christmas shopping and feeling like I should be finished soon. I'm keeping it simple and I want it done ASAP so I don't have to worry about it come December. Obviously Santa is bringing some things as well.  ;)

I am 35 weeks now and I am least physically. Starting to feel uncomfortable and my energy is definitely low. It doesn't help having a high energy 3 year old but he's been great. I got Evan a baby doll. He was very excited about it and he sleeps with it and carries it around. I've asked him the name of the baby and he says basketball. Go figure. We talk about being gentle with the baby and that babies cry and they drink milk etc. I think he's going to be a great big brother but I'm sure he'll have his moments. It will definitely be exciting around here in a few weeks.

I went to a website and set up a baby guessing game so our friends and family can make their prediction. It's silly but should be fun too. Check it out!
Type in EmeryBaby2 where it says Invited Guests.

Here some recent pictures that I have.

Eric and I went to a Halloween party and I found the idea for our costumes online. I didn't have many options and I thought this was perfect for my big belly. The costumes were a big hit! Everyone loved them!

Our little pirate. He had so much fun this year. 
He finally understood what Halloween was about. 
He was such a cute pirate!

The Enchanted Maize


I have been wanting to take Evan to a pumpkin patch and yesterday we went to the Enchanted Maize. Unfortunately there was no pumpkin patch but there were a lot of fun things to do. We went on a hay ride, walked through the corn maize and Evan jumped in a blow up jumper. It was a great day and we had lots of fun.

Pumpkin Patch Party


Evan had a Pumpkin Patch Party at his school last week. Lots of little pumpkins to decorate, bubbles, crafts and lunch. He really likes school and the party was a big hit. I was able to go with him and participate in all the pumpkin festivities.

Rock City


We took Evan to Rock City with Gulya and my mom a couple weeks ago. He really enjoyed it and the weather was perfect. It was Gulya's first time there too. Here are some pics from our visit.
