It has been a long wait (one week overdue), but he is finally here and healthy. Tristan was born August 29th 2008 at 1:15 am. After about 11 hours of Labor (in the hospital) with little progression along with Tristan's constantly fluctuating heart rate he was delivered by cesarean. Melissa and Tristan are recovering nicely and doing well. He is a cute little guy weighing in at about 8lbs 5oz and measuring 18 inches. He is surprisingly very awake and aware, and loves sucking on his fingers. Congratulations Melissa and Eric.

I don't post many pictures of myself for obvious reasons, but I thought I would share this with everyone. My mom took this picture back in July, and now here we are at the end of August. Meli was due yesterday and I am more anxious for her then I am for myself. Mostly because she has invited me to attend her birth and this will be my first time to experience it from the other side. This is her first child, and she is having a boy. They are deciding between the names Carter (my fav) or Tristan. I'm am scheduled for a cesarean on Sept. 2nd. at 12pm, so around 12:20 my little Maggie will be here. This is one of the very few perks of a c-section. You know exactly when she will be here. Unless I go early :), but it hasn't happened yet. So now we wait!

Over the summers we have had a few friendly animals come around the yard. A few years ago it was a giant skunk, every night just before the sun began to set, you could see him walk through the field and up past our front yard. We would of course watch through the front window. Last year it was a bunch of squirrels that unfortunately became more of an infestation, which we had to take care of. This summer though it is a pleasant pair of bunnies. Every morning and evening around seven o'clock you could look out the window and find them munching on weeds. Sometimes we would picnic with them in the evening and they wouldn't mind as long as we stayed on our blanket.

As my sister and I prepare for the arrival of our little ones, we decided to empty the memory cards to our cameras, since my sister doesn't have a computer yet I downloaded them for her. And I found a couple fun pictures that I haven't seen before.
Back in July at our Photo Class, as we were walking to our car I noticed that Lizzie had her shirt rolled up. I told her to put it down and noticed that it was drenched. I asked my sister what happened and she said she got a drink. And now I understand....

was pick out what they wanted to paint. Then you choose your colors, and start painting away. When your done you have to leave it with them for a little over a week so they can fire it. But the cool thing is, it always turns out beautiful. Lizzie picked this cute Flower Box, and it's no surprise that Trevor picked a Train that is also a bank. Also a little note, everything is non-toxic. Which is a good thing because as you can see in Trevors picture, he managed to paint his face a little :)
