Two Weeks Old

The last two weeks have been busy ones for the Nelson family. Filled with the hustle and bustle of the holiday season and adjusting to our new little guy. Kaitlyn has taken to him quite well and although there has been the usual period of adjustment, she loves her brother and calls him "my baby" most of the time. She loves to help care for him, especially turning on his mobile when he's awake, and is very gentle...most of the time. :) The concept that I have TWO children still takes me by surprise most days and I can hardly believe I am lucky enough to have two healthy, beautiful children with the man I love. The last two weeks, although sleep deprived, have been wonderful and I know things will only get better. Happy two week birthday Lance!!!!

Introducing Lance Tyler Nelson

Dear Family and Friends,
On December 16th 2008 at 10:56pm we welcomed Lance Tyler Nelson as the newest member of our family!!! Lance arrived weighing in at 7 pounds 14 ounces (just one ounce more than his sister did at birth) and 20.5 inches long. So far he is a very sleepy little boy and has already had many visitors come to welcome him to the world. Here are some pictures of his first days of life...

Baby...Come Out!!!

Dear Tenant,
This is a formal notice of uterine eviction. You have two (2) days in which to either gather your belongings and promptly vacate the premises. After which, you will be physically removed from the property. You are being evicted due to breech of contract and destruction of property. Expansions only to the FRONT of the house, within reasonable limits, were discussed. Not only have these limits been exceeded, but additions to the back of the house were also made. Remodeling and gutting of the home was never approved, nor was changing the initial layout and base structure. And due to property damage, there are now leaks in both the upper and lower levels of the home. Any further problems will result in immediate and forceful removal.

Your Landlord (aka Mom)

Almost There!!!

With five days left until my due date it is definitely a waiting game at the Nelson house these days! I have gone into hibernation mode and spend my time cleaning and playing with Kaitlyn. For those of you who have called with no response, I am still here! At the end of the day I am just done talking about how I haven't had the baby yet. My cousin Jamie came over yesterday and took some more belly pics, I am hoping they'll be my last ones! :)

Kid Bits

I am always telling myself I need to write down the amusing things Kaitlyn says before I forget them and then inevitably the day goes on and the thought is gone. So I just logged on to put down a conversation we had just now...

Kaitlyn: "Look a polka dot." (Pointing at a freckle on my hand)
Me: "That's called a freckle."
Kaitlyn: "A freckle?"
Me: "Yes, a freckle. I don't think you have any freckles."
Kaitlyn: "I have a freckle right there!" Pointing to her thumb
Me: "Oh, you do have a freckle"
Kaitlyn: "That's a good point." (In a congratulatory tone to herself)

14 Days To Go!!!

Today I am 38 weeks pregnant and have 14 days until my due date! Woohoo! Preparations for the new baby are coming together and the excitement is rising as everyone becomes anxious to see who this is! There is quite a debate going on whether this baby is a boy or girl! Ben keeps looking at me as if I am a time bomb ready to explode and I feel that way too!

For those of you on Nelson Baby Watch 2008 I had a Dr appointment yesterday and was told I am 1 cm dilated. So it's a step in the right direction! At this point with Kaitlyn there was nothing going on so I am hoping this means my body will be ready before my due date this time!

Here is the latest picture, it's me heading off to teach my last Jazzercise class before the baby comes. :)
