He's Here

Okay so I am about a week late in writing this but oh well.
Our bundle of joy came on his due date August 20th at 2:49pm weighing 8lbs 3oz
I went to the hospital at 6am and was there for the long haul.
we had great nurses while we were there and I had one shot of morphine and no epidural ,no gas no nothing. so proud of me.
He is growing quite quickly as he eats lots and lots . not really all that fussy although he is starting to figure that part of his life out.
He has spent time with two of his great aunts and his great Grandma strain as well as his nan and pop, and uncle Greg . His Grandma and Grandpa Roffel and his Aunt shona and Uncle J.
He has even had visits from some of his second cousins ... one in particular keeps coming back so he must really love Ethan.
we have gone out lots as mommy spent three long weeks in the house before he came and he loves being in his car seat and going places.
Daddy has gone back to work and mommy is desperatly trying to figure out a sheduale to get all the house work done that needs to be done along with taking naps to have energy for those late night feedings.

Baby update

Well well well
I guess I should update everyone. I had my 38 week appointment today . it was really good. the worst part was having to wait an hour over my appointment time to see the dr.
Ethan is still head down which is good news he has been this way since about febuary or march apparently he wants to come out soon.
everything else with us is great.
we are paitently awaiting his arrival and everything is ready for him to show up.
Geoff is still working with the Salvation Army's Booth center in winnipeg and I am going on my third week of mat leave. I am bored but thats okay cause soon I wont be able to be bored.

the casting

quick note

Okay so tonight was the night to make the cast of my belly and it started out great until..... I needed to throw up my dinner. poor geoff had to hold the bowl while I was throwing up my mcdonalds. then he was sick. the casting has turned out really good so far i will post some pictures of it very soon. it will be a while before it is completely dry probably tommorow but I will post before its painted and of course after when its all finished.
Have a great one

just an update

Well here we are and its almost June. I am so glad. I have lots of things to look forward too this summer and I really want it to start tomorrow.
This month has been crazy at work our manager is gone which sucks, then this weekend I was working and the assistant was away and someone didn't show up for their shift then called later and just quit so I had to find a replacement for her shift the next day . which ended up being a girl who is being trained as a key holder and now she is having to work 11 days straight unless the assistant can find a way to give her a break.
this coming weekend we have our friends kids for the day on Saturday and then again on Sunday morning we are looking forward to it because soon they will be moving from us :(
People have asked me to post new belly pics and I will eventually . I was supposed to do a cast of my belly tonight but alas the store was not open today to get the proper kit to do so:( Geoff even drove all over the city to try and find a store that sold the kit for me... and he hates driving all over the city.

Its A Boy

Well I have been a bad blogger and not updated since we went for our ultrasound.
we went on April 3rd and everything looks good. we did find out its a boy and are both very excited. Geoff is now glad he does not have to worry about other peoples boys around a girl and I dont have to worry about having a girly girl. we are so happy. we have since set up the crib in its spot and have registered at toys r us although we are not in much need of anything big thanks to some of our closest friends.
we go to our dr tommorow for a follow up visit and we see how much our little one is growing I know he is cause some days it hurts to bend over cause of the position he is in. also he is a kicker which drives me bannanas . oh well
I will up date soon I promise
