2 weeks old

Isaak is two weeks old today. How is that possible?!! We went to the Dr. yesterday and he already weighs 9pds 9oz He is growing so fast. Last Monday the wonderful Angi Carman came over to my house and took Isaak's newborn pictures. He slept all day so by the time she got here he was wide awake. I kept nursing him to get him to fall asleep so we could get some pictures with his eyes closed. They turned GREAT!! Thank you Angi for capturing this special time for me. You're the BEST!!

This is my favorite picture it brought tears to my eyes

I love Mikaila's expression, she is such a wonderful BIG sister

I can't stop kissing him.

I wish babies stayed small like this forever!

Isaak's Room

So here are the pictures of Isaak's room. There are still a few more things to be finished but I wanted to get the pics up. The crib and changing table I found on craigslist. Mikael painted them black and they look brand new!
My friend gave me the bedding so I went with a Jungle theme. I was having a hard time finding pics that looked good. I remembered Mikael's friend Jeremy his mom has them great photos from a trip to Africa so I asked her if I could have copies and she gave me a ton of prints to choose from and all the frames. She is so nice and I love how it turned out!

Isaak Mathew Luman

He is finally here...Isaak Mathew Luman made his debut on Tuesday November 11, 2008 at 7:34 pm. He weighs 8 pds. 5 oz. and is 19 3/4 inches long. I am definitely one proud mama!!
I had a dr appt at 11:30am on Tuesday and she scraped my membranes I then started having contractions every 10 minutes after that. Then by 2pm they were 5minutes apart so by 4pm we checked into the hospital by 5pm they checked me I was dialated to a 7 almost 8 and was still handeling the contractions great so I wanted to wait to get my epidural. By 7pm the pain was almost too much to handle and I thought I'm done get me an epidural so the dr checked me I was dialated to a 9.5 so she broke my water and at 7:34pm he was here and I had made it without getting an epidural.

YEAH!!! I know that is silly but I wanted to be able to say I did it natural, no drugs and now I can. Honestly I am so proud of myself!!! And no stitches down below! I think this body was made to have babies! Now that I'm done with the gory details here is the little man...

Look at all that hair

39 weeks...7 days to go

I can't believe my due date is only 7 days away. Can that be right?! I sure hope it is. Although the mere thought of having another baby here to take care of is slightly overwhelming to me.(anyone who knows Mikaila understands why) I am really excited to finally meet this little guy inside me. All I think about is what color will his hair be? or how BIG is he going to be? I know the longer he stays in there he's just getting bigger and bigger and I have to give birth to that!!! AHHHH!! Other than that I'm super anxious!
Mikael and I have been working on getting his room put together. The crib, changing table, shelves and baskets have all been painted this week and tomorrow hopefully we can get the pictures hung and the room complete. Pictures will be posted as soon as it's done. I can't wait to show everyone.
So here is the final picture of the enormous belly. Don't mind what I look like I've been cleaning and chasing Mikaila around all day and yes these are the same pj's I wore to bed last night I just havent taken them off today but I still wanted to take a pic (good thing I have other pictures to redeem myself...lol)
Oh by the way, I had a dr's appt on Tuesday and I was dialated to a 3, 70% efaced and -1. So we're definitely moving in the right direction. I have another appt Tues. I'll keep you posted on the progress!

I am so behind on my blogging but how could I not blog about Halloween!! We had a great night! I wasnt really sure what to dress Mikaila up as but my mother in law gave me a witch costume and it fit so we went with that this year. Unfortunately the hat didnt fit so we tossed it and spray painted her hair purple with sparkles. I wanted to paint her face green with black lips and a hairy mole but getting a hyper two year old to sit still is nearly impossible so this is what I ended up with. Still cuter then ever!

Pearce and Mikaila ready to go hit up some houses for candy!!
