Ok, so now that Soph has given us the great pictures that she took, I can show them to you also! Thank you so much Sophie for taking so many pictures and for watching Taylor. It means the world to us to have such a great friend!!

Here are Taylor and I on the way to the hospital at about 12:30am on August 17th. Sorry, no picture of Jason, as he was driving, and Sophie was sitting right behind him, and was not able to take a picture of him.

Sophie and Taylor may have missed the birth, but they didn't miss the midwifes checking Isaiah out!

Sophie made sure he had all his toes!

Our first family photo!

We are so happy to be home. Isaiah is doing much better now. We go to see Andrea tomorrow at 11:30am, so I will update you on what she has to say! As of Saturday when she came to our house Isaiah was 7lbs 9oz. He is slowly gaining back his weight. We have until Friday to try to be back to his birth weight.
I am happy to report that when I went to TOPS last night, I lost 11 lbs! Yes, I am back to my prepreo weight!! Now to get the rest to come off, and get my body back in shape!

Ok, so tomorrow is Taylor's birthday. I know he is upset because we are having an "adult party" and only have Sophie and Justin coming to it. He is having a "kids party" in September after he goes back to school, and has time to invite friends from school.
I don't know how to deal with this. He is showing us some attitude that we were really not ready for. I know this is common with a child who has spent so much time as an only child, but wow! I didn't think it would be like this. It has been rather trying on both Jason and I. I know that once he gets back to school that things will get better, and the more time that we are able to spend with just him, and get him involved in things the better things will be.

Please keep us in your prayers as we continue to learn and adjust to our new family life.

Yes, we are home. Sorry that it has taken us so long to post, but things here have been very hectic. I hope that by next week things will slow down a bit more.

Isaiah is dealing with some jaundice, and not feeding so well. We are having to express breast milk, and supplement him at the same time as feeding him. This means it takes both Jason and I to feed him. Thus causing issues with Taylor. He is having a bit of a time adjusting to being a big brother, and sharing his parents. We have really noticed this during feeding times. I know this will get better as time goes on, but it is really frustrating to deal with at the moment.

So we have some pictures of things like our first bath at home!! What a great time that was. Isaiah didn't cry when we put him in the tub,we got him all wet, washed half of his body, and then the screaming began! It was great fun.

Enjoy the pictures! I will write more when my brain has had some rest.

Still not home... :(

Well, looks like we'll be at the hospital for another day, maybe two... Isaiah isn't gaining weight, he's dropped a bunch actually and they're worried about his jaundice. We've gone to breast feeding, followed by pumped milk from after last feeding, followed by some formula.

Please pray for Isaiah, he needs to get his weight back up. Also keep Robyn in your prayers as she's not taking too well to having to stay in the hospital again.

I'll be adding some more pics to the gallery in the next few minutes so have a look.

Well we just got home from our midwife appointment. We are 3 cm dilated, and well on our way! Andrea said she hopes by tomorrow! I have to say, I would be more then happy with that!
This seems like such a long process! I am happy to report that things are well so far. And Jason will have to keep you posted when everything happens!

Belly cast

Well I am not really sure what I think of this, but it is done now!
I thought it was such a great idea, until I had to lay there, and not move while Jason and Taylor put the casting material on my belly.
I think I would like to try one in a more sitting position, as I feel the cast doesn't look pregnant, but just fat! LOL

Nothing like hoping and praying that nobody else saw!!
