Welcome Baby Jack!




After a long New Years Eve, John Daniel "Jack" Blomshield finally made his appearance early on New Years Day, January 1st, at 1:45 AM!  Regan is a real trooper- Jack weighed in at a hefty 8 lbs. 11 oz and 21 inches long!  

Jack and his new mom and dad made the journey home on Sunday, January 4th, with the help of his two new grandmothers!

Non-Stress Test

Day 5. We had an appointment this morning and received a non-stress test to ensure the baby was still fine and there was no reason to induce labor. We (Sprout and I) passed with flying colors and get another week together, unless Sprout decides to finally come out. We have another test scheduled for next week and if all is good the doctor will let us stay together no later than the 7th of January. Please send some thoughts this way for labor to start!!!

Of course, the extra time has been nice because Chris and I have been doing a ton around the house. :)

4 Days Overdue

Well, it is 9am Sunday morning and Sprout and I are still firmly attached. Chris has been trying pressure points on me that are supposed to make you go into labor. I think we have disproved every one. I have a Doctors appointment tomorrow where they will check on Sprout and make sure he/she is still doing well before they will let me keep going with the pregnancy. Wish us luck!

Last Belly Shot??


Merry Christmas everyone!! Well the number of days until we see what has been living in me is nearing a close. So I guess Chris and I should buckle down and look at some baby names, huh? I don't know... Baby boy/girl Blomshield has such a nice ring. And we know no one else at school will have that same name. :)














I can't wait for you all to meet the baby (after I get to, of course). I was told yesterday that they come out with a personality already and I can definitely see that. Chris and Sprout play patty cake through my belly every day. It is quite cute.

Love you.

Sprout's Room


So this is probably our best room decoration ever. Chris and his dad picked out the perfect color with the help of a woman at Sherwin Williams. Everything came together from the pillow found at BB&B to the rug we found Lowes. We liked the blackout curtains so much that is spurred the conversation "why does sprout get better curtains that us?" So now we have nice blackout curtains in our room too.

Christmas Eve Eve

Thought we would try a little video blog for everybody.
I keep asking... she keeps telling me it will happen when it happens.

The wait continues

I had another doctors appt today. Things are still moving along and we should have a baby within the next two weeks. Yes, you read that right, two weeks. 42 Weeks pregnant is perfectly normal.

We have been having baby monitor problems recently. The one we ordered and have waited 7 weeks for has now been postponed for another 6 weeks, so I cancelled that order. We ordered from another site and learned the next day that the item has been discontinued and the company cancelled that order. Chris found yet another baby monitor that fits all his stringent requirements (isn't he cute?!) but PHILLIPS (US company) only sells it in Europe. What the heck?! So, our search continues with the amount of time shrinking. Any suggestions on ones you like I will definitely take!! We weren't looking for anything majorly special, not even one with a video feed. But I don't know how picky we can afford to be now.

Thoughts?
