Too long...

It has been way too long. Almost 7 months, actually.  Our little snugglebug is almost 7 months and I cannot believe it.  I try so hard to savor every second of her babyhood :) but I can't!  Time steals away and months go by.  So here she is, in all her perfection, a timeline in pictures.

Keatyn Judy Peltier

She is here!! GOD IS SO GOOD. I do not deserve all that He has blessed me with but I am SO thankful. What an amazing event that women go through to bring little ones into this world.  I won't say it was fun or that I didn't think I was literally going to die on that hospital bed (when my epidural didn't work), but I will say it's probably the most beautiful moment in this life.  For sure it is in mine, at least.

Keatyn was 9 pounds 15 ounces and 21.5 inches long.  Needless to say, I am glad Dr. Everson decided we needed to get her out when I went in last Monday, the 23rd, and had an ultrasound done.  If she had let me go as long as she originally said she would, the 30th or 31st, I would have had an 11 pounder probably.  Oh Lord, can you imagine?!?!  I was induced around 7am on the 24th and Keatyn came into the world at 12:28.  At about 10:30, I was measuring at a 3 and by 11:30, I was a 10.  So obviously, when she decided it was time, it was time!!  All of our family came to visit and see the little princess and we are so thankful for all their support.  We are blessed.  Big brother was a little hesitant at first, but now he just wants to kiss on her all the time.  He doesn't quite understand that she doesn't know how to do high fives yet, so he keeps trying.

I am just going to post a bunch of pictures because I literally think every single one is beautiful and perfect. :)

Thank you everyone for all the prayers and love you have shown to us during this AMAZING time in our lives.

Oxygen please!!

Oh baby girl....it would be SO NICE if you would at least drop a little bit so that mommy can breathe if you are going to stay in there til the very end!  I am really struggling for air this week and I haven't had the best attitude about it.  I can tell she is bigger and I guess she is just smooshing every organ that's in her way.  According to MY timeline, she should be coming out pretty soon, and I know God trusts my timing, so any day now! ;)
All joking aside, I know I am being a wuss, but I didn't have problems breathing when I was pregnant with Walker so it's wearing me out!!  I am almost 38 weeks now, and as long as my cervix gets ready, Dr. Everson is going to induce me on the 19th (two weeks from today!) if Keatyn hasn't decided to come on her own by then.  I would really love for my water to break and me to go into labor on my own so that I can experience it, but I do have to admit that it makes it alot easier on family traveling and me planning if we get to know for sure the day she is coming!  Why do we (humans) have such a strong need for control?!?!  I know it MUST be so frustrating to the Big Man upstairs who actually knows what's perfect for us if we would just let Him do His job.  So as I write this, I think I will try to focus on having a good attitude about whenever Keatyn decides to make her appearance.  My change of attitude starts....now.

Needless to say, we are so excited that it's getting so close!!  I can't wait to hold that precious baby girl and kiss her sweet cheeks <3  I am excited to see how Walker is with his baby sister because he sure does talk about her alot!!  Do I think he really knows what's happening, no, but he will as soon as she gets here!  I think he is going to be the sweetest big brother in the world.

I think everything is ready for her! Her nursery is done, all her little clothes are washed, my bag is packed.  It's more fun this second time around because I'm not scared like I was the first time.  I have a sense of confidence (be it false or not) when it comes to taking care of a baby, so I'm not just thinking about how nervous I am.  I know Jeffrey feels the same way too.  I found out that I don't have Strep B this time, so hopefully I will only have to stay in the hospital one night this time!!  I know people think I'm crazy because it's easier in the hospital, but we wanted to be home.

So that's it!  Depending on when God has set Keatyn's birthday as, I may or may not post again before she comes.  But we would appreciate any thoughts and prayers as we get ready for our world to be rocked again in the next week or two! XoXo

35 weeks.....

Not much new except that my tummy is huge and I can barely shave my own legs. Ha.

Here I am in all my glory :)

Keatyn's room still isn't finished, we just have to hang everything we have and move the chair in there from Walker's room. Oh yeah, and get a mattress, that's kind of important. I have some precious crib sheets to go on it, just not the actual mattress yet.  It's on the to do list.

I go tomorrow for my 36 week appointment and I'll get my cervix checked for the first time.  I'm anxious to know if anything is goin on...like Keatyn preparing to make her descent.  It's getting so close, I can't believe how fast time is going by!

Here are the loves of my life on Father's Day:

So we'll see how things are lookin after tomorrow!!

KeaTyN's RooM

I have finally accomplished some things for Keatyn's room and I am so excited about how it's going to turn out.  My wonderful mother-in-law helped me sew curtains and crib sheets, and I also made her a pillow and some table runners for her table and the trunk that will be in her room.  I love the bright colors, I think it will be very cheerful in there.  Maybe it will make her an extra happy baby :) Here are some pictures of the things for her room:
her crib! yay!

her precious curtains...Jeff has to move the blinds back and then you won't see sunlight shining thru the top

I painted her fan blades to match the colors of the fabric I'm using

not sure what I'm gonna do with the feathers but I'm going to use them somewhere!! they match perfectly :)

the letters for her wall

the pillow I made her...my proudest accomplishment of all :)

So I have a bunch of stuff but I am just not organized with it yet! I am really excited to see how it looks when it's done.

I am now 33.5 weeks along, I can't believe time has flown so fast!! I have two baby showers this weekend, one on Saturday and one on Sunday.  I'm very excited and feel so blessed to have wonderful friends and family that want to do such a nice thing for me. I love them all so very much!  Hopefully after this weekend when my parents bring the last piece of furniture for her room, we'll be able to get it organized and get some stuff hung. I can't wait!!! Pictures to follow :)

30 weeks!!

Unbelievable. I'm 2 days short of 30 weeks and time has flown by.  I am trying to enjoy every second with my little Walkerman(even when he is throwing a tantrum which is becoming more often as he quickly approaches 2).  Keatyn never wants us to forget about her in my tummy so she is moving around and kicking pretty much 24/7.  I love it except at night when I'm trying to get to sleep and she is clearly not very tired.  We're to the point now that you can see my tummy moving around alot so that is cool for Jeffrey.

I am trying to do all kinds of activities with Walker to keep him entertained. On Monday, we went with Gramm and cousins Julia and Emily to Brenham to tour the Blue Bell Factory and eat some ice cream.  We enjoyed it and the kiddos did too.  Here are some photos from that trip.
Walker did NOT want to wear his hat so it took about 324958734 tries to get a pic with all 3 of them wearing a hat

playing with the cow outside the factory...Emily liked her hat, obviously

Last weekend, we took Bubs to Bouncin Bears on Friday night to jump and then we went to the Champions golf tournament on Saturday morning since Walker is so obsessed with golf(it had nothing to do with how much Daddy loves golf, no way). Here are a few pictures from that.

clearly, Walker loved the slides :)

Walker is so much fun so I am trying to soak up all I can before the baby comes. I have this overwhelming fear that I'm going to miss out on stuff with him when I have Keatyn to take care of also. I am just praying that I will be able to figure out how to shower both kiddos with all the love and attention that they deserve.

So we're planning on going to Touch a Truck this weekend, where Walker can sit in fire trucks and police cars and other big trucks.  Since his number 1 obsession lately has been 'tucks,' (golf fell quickly to #2 obsession) I am pretty sure that he will love it. I'm sure I will have a ton of photos from that to post too....
