I did not plan ahead a lot this time around, including getting a newborn shoot set up. Thankfully the hospital had a First Day photo team out to take photos and although the price wasn’t all that ideal, it was worth getting shots of Walker’s first day with us. I’m so happy we got photos of just him, too, because his birth day is very special to us. Those first 24 hours are so precious and I’m glad we had someone there to take pictures, even if it wasn’t myself. I’m totally going to frame the one of Rob holding him, it’s so beautiful and so simple. I’m still going to try to get some shots of Jace with Walker, or even myself, but for now, these are lovely.
Well, our second born is here! Walker Jared Johannes! Born Sunday, April 9, 2017 at 6:27pm, weighing in at 9lb 1oz and 21.25″ inches long. Before my memory escapes me, I wanted to document my birth experience so I can remember it, just as I did for Jace’s birth.
Yesterday we spent some time at one of our favorite parks down by Papago, and got pretty sweaty. When we got home we brought out the lawn sprinkler for Jace and to our surprise, he got quickly undressed (we convinced him to keep his undies on) and started running circles around our front yard. No fear that one. I can’t believe how tall and lengthy he’s getting. Love him so much. And his little ninja turtle undies:)
Happy Sunday ya’ll!
On Sunday my sister threw me a little impromtu sprinkle shower, something small with family and a few of my closest friends. It was seriously the most beautiful day, from start to finish. I originally didn’t want any kind of shower since I really have everything from the first go around, but realized how lovely it was just to have a girls outing to mentally decompress and take a break before the rush of having another at home becomes a reality.
Oh heyyyy. Cheryl here. Just waiting around for this baby to come out. I’m 39 weeks, come on baby! What have I been doing to kill the time you ask?? .. Aside from STILL working, just doing everything I can to induce labor at home, hahahaha. Including grueling games of ping pong, long walks on the canal (until I have to turn around and go home and pee!) and pulling weeds and cleaning up our yard. Also, I’m eating a lot food (like Matt’s Big Breakfast, OMG!) and going to bed early with Jace. He insists on wearing his glasses like Momma. My body is feeling pretty wacky at this point. I know something’s building, because I’m starting to swell in places. I just wish I knew WHEN it would happen. The suspense is killing me. And so is my back. I’m going to try doing some lunges next, some spicy food .. anything at this point.
