I could not help but look back at some pictures of my sweet baby girl on the day she was born when our lives changed forever....oh it seems like so long ago, but it really wasn't. I can not wait to see Baby Gavin for the first time.
Here is a picture of Emma the very 1st time we laid our eyes on her, it was amazing how we fell in love with her instantly. Oh, the days can not come quick enough till my Dr. holds my little guy up for the first time and I lay eyes on him too.
I had a little scare this morning and did not feel Gavin moving like his usual little rowdy self. Thank goodness, I have a connection through a teacher at my school that volunteers at the Pregnancy Crisis Center and we ran over and got to have a quick little ultrasound. Uh, no wonder the poor little guy was not moving ~ there is NO room left in there. I am not kidding his arms are so close and tight to his little body and up under his chin. Poor thing...he is ready to come out and meet his Mommy. I am thinking he is going to be a really BIG BOY and so is the Dr.
From the looks of today's ultrasound, he looked alot like Emma to me. Big round face, very little hair and really big cheeks. The truth is...I don't care what he looks like, I just want him to be healthy and be here.
Please keep us in your prayers over the next week as we grow from 3 to the Frazier Four!

Oh, our life is about to change in only 13 short days. I can not help but sit around and wonder...What is it going to be like? Will I ever sleep? How is Emma going to be with a baby Brother? What is he going to look like? Will he be like Emma? Is he going to be a good baby or a fussy one?
I have been talking to a couple friends about what they think Gavin is going to look like and they all think he is going to look like a Fabian (my side of the family...dark hair and dark eyes). Time will tell, my gut tells me he is going to be red headed and blue eyed like his Big Sister.

Our littlest Valentine...oh she is so sweet! Notice, she has a dog-dog in her arms.
Here are the little treat bags we took to her MDO party for all her friends. It was hard to find stuff to give to little ones that was somewhat healthy and not junk. We decided on Goldfish, Fruit Snacks and of course her Dog-Dog cards.
Here are all the little Valentines she got at the party. Can you guess which one was her favorite. It should not be too hard...of course it was the Puppy Love book in the middle.
She was so excited to be sitting by her special friend Hannah and having a cookie.
A party is just not a party without a Juice box. As you know, we do not let her have juice...only milk and water. She kindly reminded us across the room how much she liked it in front of all the other parents by loudly telling us, "I like juice, I like juice".

Today is her Valentine Party at MDO, so we will be headed there about 11:00 to deliver our goodies and enjoy the festivities. I took a picture of our goodie bags that I will have to post a little later. I was so proud of myself, I allowed her to choose her own Valentine Cards. I was not surprised at all with her choice...you got it DOG-DOGS. Who would have guessed, right? They are so cheesy, but exactly what she wanted and I guess that is what matters.
I know that I have said this a hundred times, but I really believe that we have one of the sweetest little girls on the face of the earth. The days are so enjoyable with her and she is so much FUN. She is so full of life and keeps us laughing all the time. I can not wait to see her face when she gets to meet her little brother in 19 more days. She is going to be an awesome Big Sister.

Yes, we have had a change of heart. Our original plan was to put the "itty bitty" in her big girl bed and move the crib to Mr. Gavin's room. Well, last Saturday we started moving the furniture and got the dresser/changing table moved and suddenly realized...we are not ready for Emma to be out of a crib for many reasons.
After many long conversations, we have decided to store Emma's big girl bed and buy her a new crib. We are on the hunt for a cheap one too... and we will be moving our nice crib to Gavin's Nursery. Needless to say, we set out last Sunday to purchase another crib mattress and look for a crib that matches our existing furniture.
One of the main reasons we decided to hold off on the big girl bed has to do with the picture above. What you see is the bed rail that was suppose to attach to the side of her bed. I just needed to read the first couple bullets and I was like NO WAY, my 19 month old baby girl is NOT going in this bed with this rail. Not worth the worry. Never did I imagine that I would have 2 cribs in my house at one time, but it is reality and I am so EXCITED.
Only 20 more days and I will have my baby boy in my arms...oh, I can not wait to see his sweet little face. It is going to be a great day for all of us and it is oh so close.

Stripes are complete, the rest of the room will be blue and the crown molding is scheduled to be hung this week. I should have 90% complete Nursery pictures posted Sunday evening.
By the way... not sure if you have been missing me, but my computer crashed and it is time to buy a new one. However, I am not wanting to spend the money right now to purchase a new one. I know all my friends are excited to hear that the 8 year old Compaq will be out the door soon. Please pray that all my pictures are able to be retrieved off the hard drive. We have ordered a cable to do that, so wish the HOTY luck.
All in all... we are good. Very excited about welcoming this little BOY into our family. I can not wait to share pictures of him with all of you.
