I just can't get over how absolutely overwhelmed I am with my love for this little guy!

Isaiah has been "helping" his daddy with grad school reading and preparing for the class he has to teach.

Yesterday we went to the pediatrician for the first visit, and today I went to a support group for breastfeeding moms at this place called "The Pump Station" (nice name). I think I realized that an outing a day for two days in a row is a bit too much for both little Isaiah and for me right now. All I want to do is stay home for the next several days and not even step outside the door. Maybe by tomorrow I feel motivated enough to take a walk...But, beyond that, I want to just stay in and soak up time with my beautiful little guy! (That and possibly take a nap!)

These lovely flowers are from our extra "family" at the Vineyard staff.

He's here!

I can only imagine that I will be writing non-stop about every little thing that this miraculous, precious little gift of ours does, but today, I am sleep-deprived and just happy and overwhelmed by the privilege of having our new little Isaiah Jackson Snowden in our home.

He was born on Thursday, August 14 at 7:30 a.m. He weighed 7 lbs 8 oz and is the most beautiful thing in the whole wide world!

He is home now and doing well. John took him for a walk this afternoon and is now holding him. John is an amazing dad, and I am so blessed to share this life adventure with such an amazing man!

Anyway, for today, just a couple quick photos and my expression of great joy!!!

Baby's Room

Some sweet friends came over Saturday and helped me clear and organize some things from Baby's room, and today, John hung up the stuff on the walls. It feels like the room is really ready to have a baby living in it! Whoa, it's exciting!

Getting Ready and Waiting

Hey, guys! When is Baby Snowden going to get here?

Well, it could be any day now. The due date is still two weeks away, so it could be any day or four weeks from now! That's a pretty broad range for a Type-A planner like me. :)

I am plodding along with my preparations. I just move a lot slower these days with everything! And there is so much I would still like to get done before he comes. I may need to accept that not all of it will be in perfect order. Bleh.

My major accomplishment of the day was to finally finish the curtains that I was making for Baby's room. They still need to be hemmed, but I went ahead and hung them for now. May have to enlist Grandma Miller's (my mom) help when she comes if they don't get hemmed before then. Here's a little shot of them...

And a close-up of the fabric. What could be more fun than monkeys playing funky tribal drums? :)
