Gavin Patrick Murray!

8lb 8oz; 21.25in long, born at 1:51 A.M.

The short and sweet (birth story will come later) version: water broke at 4:00 a.m., the next day at 6:30 p.m. my first contractions started, at 1:30 I feel the urge to push and he was born 21 minutes later with the umbilical cord wrapped 6 times around his neck!! It was an amazing and wonderful home birth and I feel great!!!

Waiting... ....

So I am sitting at 39 weeks and 3 days, just praying for Mr. Baby to get here! As you can see by the picture below I am tired and just getting bigger and bigger all over!!! I am ready to get this on the road and have my body back!

I had an appointmetn with my Midwife today and she still feels him high in my pelvis so she said that it might be a while longer... grrrrrrrrrr is all I could think. Well I hope you enjoy the picture hopefully something will happen this week!

Giving a Helping Hand

We finally had a good weather day here in VA for the first time in like a month and Reed took the girls out to the playground on the corner of our house to get some new pictures of them! (I stayed inside and did some much needed cleaning w/o messy kids getting in the way!)

So here are some shots of your favorite twins!!My Beautiful Daughters!!! Grace

Oh, and the video is of Kaylee pretending to fall down and Grace helping her up! My girls sure do love each other... ... well most of the time! lol Enjoy!!!

Yeah, I got nothing... no signs that labor will start soon or that anything will happen early... ah, well! I have my weekly appointments every Tuesday morning with my midwife and so far everything is going well with me, no swelling, good blood pressure, all test are clear! Mr. Baby is also doing very well, he is in the ideal head down position and we are working on making sure he moves over from a posterior positioning (sunny side up) to an anterior (face down towards my back)position. He more often than not is laying with his back along my side or he is completely posterior, so I am wearing a huge abdominal binder to help position him better and to help carry my large tummy around all day...

Other than that we are just waiting to see when he will arrive...
