Our going's-on

Grace continues to love to take pictures of her baby brother!

This week we've attempted to potty train Grace (again!). I was hoping this potty chart would motivate her to go. But unfortunately it did not do the trick (notice no stickers!). But we'll just try, try, try again!

Yesterday I celebrated my 30th year! This image is taken from a 1977 JCPenney catalog. I just thought it was fun to see what they all were wearing 30 years ago. I'm so glad that times have changed!

Late, But Worth The Wait!

We finally have our little boy! Here are some of the quick facts:
Name: Clark Andrew
DOB: 10.31.07
Weight: 8 lbs. 1 oz.
Length: 20 inches
Time: 4:21pm

Here are the somewhat long details of the birth: We were scheduled to be induced on the 31st. But I was so sure that he would come a early and on his own that I wasn't worried of having a baby on Halloween and having to wait so long! Boy, was I wrong! We ended up at the hospital early on Wednesday morning to be induced. The problem was, I expected everything to go as smoothly as Grace's birth. But Andy and I quickly learned that every child and birth is not the same! Anyway, I ended up having a C-section since I wasn't progressing and Clark's heart rate kept on dropping. After the operation, I was so happy just to have him out and to know that he was healthy! We are still here in the hospital, but expecting to come home tomorrow. The recovery process is still far from over, but I'm already feeling 100 times better than I did yesterday.

And Clark, well he is already off to a great start! He is a great eater and sleeper. What more could a mother ask for?! And he's perfect!
And Grace, she has been such a trooper through out this whole new brother thing! I was worried the longer stay at the hospital would be hard on her, but she's been patient. However, I think she is ready and looking forward to when mom and Clark can come home. And so am I!
