Maternity Photos December 23, 2009

I took some maternity pictures a few weeks ago.  It was pretty cold that day and as you will see, Gavin was not too cooperative in some of them.  The photographer was able to capture some good shots through it all. Click on the link below to see the pictures.

Check out this video of Gavin.  He loves singing, and we were finally able to catch him on video.  I think it is pretty cute and funny!  What do you think?

I’m the Big Brother!

Filed under: Uncategorized — thejamesfam @ 8:16 pm

I took Gavin to a sibling class at the hospital we are going to deliver at last week.  He had a fun time taking care of his baby and touring the hospital.  He only dropped the baby a few times!  We will not be letting him hold the baby on his own when she comes home.  Here are some pictures from his class!

Nursery Preview December 16, 2009

Baby girl will be here before we know it.  I am still finishing up lots of last-minute projects to prepare for her arrival.  I had some bedding made for her, I just love it!!!!  Here are a few pics.  There is also a pic of a pillow sham that my great seamstress made for Gavin.  They are sharing a room for now, so we are trying to make it flow and have her girly side and his boy side.  Doesn’t Gavin look excited to be getting a baby sister?!?  When we get everything done, I will post a finished picture of the room.  Let me know what you think!

 

 

Breakfast with Santa

Filed under: Uncategorized — thejamesfam @ 6:54 pm

Well, I took Gavin back to Breakfast with Santa again this year.  He was not a very big fan of Santa like he was last year.  He basically wanted nothing to with him, even though he was excited the entire time we were in line.  He also talked about it nonstop after we left like he had actually enjoyed seeing Santa.  Here are some pictures of him enjoying the crafts and other activities they had.  I will have to scan in and add the Santa picture later.

Baby Shower #3

Filed under: Uncategorized — thejamesfam @ 6:02 pm

We were blessed with three wonderful baby showers to help us celebrate our baby girl, who will be here very soon!!!  Our last shower was about a month ago, and was hosted by some of my wonderful coworkers in the Surgery Center at Children’s.  They really outdid themselves and we had  a great time!!!  Here are some pictures from the shower. Thanks to everyone who helped with the shower and blessed us with such wonderful gifts.
