April Showers...

We have had so much fun the past two weekends- being showered by friends and family who are generous enough to help us welcome Cy Wesley and prepare for his approaching arrival. What a blessing- we are so thankful for our thoughtful friends and wonderful church family! And boy, oh boy...were we showered! Thank you to everyone who has shared in our joy and excitement as we await the arrival of our sweet little nugget. Here are some pictures from the festivities.

Ellie Kate has ARRIVED!!!

Whew...we've had quite an exciting day! Becky treated me to a fabulous pedicure then we had planned to meet Cassie, who was completing her bi-weekly fetal monitoring, for lunch. However, the doctors were concerned because Cassie's amniotic fluid level had dropped significantly since Monday and Ellie's heart rate was decreasing with mom's contractions. They decided to go ahead and admit Cass, break her water, then see how Ellie would respond to labor. Unfortunately, Ellie's heart rate continued to respond poorly to the on April 16th at 7:31 pm., she was delivered via c-section. Ellie Kate Randers made her debut weighing 5 lbs 9 oz and was 18.5 inches long. Both mom and our sweet niece are doing great! Welcome to the world, sweet Ellie!

Cy's Nursery is FINISHED!!!

YEA!!! Mom made the curtains for Cy's room this past his nursery is officially finished- THANKS, MIMI!!! Gramsy was generous enough to purchase the Racer canvas that will reside above his dresser/changer- which we will receive at our upcoming baby shower. I think the room is adorable...hope our little bambino feels the same way. We're ready...just 6 1/2 weeks to go!!! Drumroll is a panoramic veiw of the finished product (sans the dresser w/ the empty wall above it)................

Like Father, Like Son...

It's been 12 weeks since Travis and I last saw our sweet baby boy and today, during our 31 week sonogram, we once again got to lay our eyes on the most handsome little face you've ever seen (no bias here!). Cy Wesley now weighs 4 lbs- putting him in the 57th percentile for his gestational age. Based on his growth up to this point, Dr. Hales 'guess'-timates that his birth weight will be between 7 1/2 & 8 lbs. And yes....we have 100% confirmation that our nugget is indeed a BOY!!! All of his systems were thoroughly checked again and were given two very enthusiastic thumbs up! Here are a few of the sonogram pics from our this point, he is the spitting image of Travis as a newborn (no "milk man" conspiracies with this little guy!). I can't wait to kiss these adorable little cheeks!

Handsome Fella!
Yes...we're having a BOY!!!

(Last time showing this type of picture will be appropriate, but seeing is believing!)

Cy's profile

We are scheduled for another sonogram in 3 weeks to check his growth... YEAH!

And my wonderful husband was kind enough to hang the chandelier in Cy's nursery this weekend. I think it looks great!!
