Sunshine Elizabeth Lee

We are so excited to announce the new addition to our family…welcome Sunshine Elizabeth! Our beautiful baby girl was born on Thursday, April 23rd at 1am (almost on earth day). She weighed exactly 7 pounds and was 19 inches long. She is so precious.

This past Thursday was her 2 week check-up. She is a very healthy baby. She now weighs 8 pounds and is 21 inches tall. She is starting to get chubby cheeks and a double chin. She is so cute!

We feel so lucky to have such a wonderful and healthy baby. She pretty much sleeps through the night and barely ever cries. She even sleeps all throughout the day. Our favorite thing about Sunny is that she makes silly faces and smiles a lot…and she loves being wrapped like a little burrito.

We are now a family of 4: Ben, me, Sunny, & Jack

So tiny!

Her 2nd bath. The 1st one was kind of chaotic. She likes having her head scrubbed.

That's it for now. More pictures to come.

Baby to be Induced Today!

Well, this morning Ben and I went in to see the doctor and things look like they are progressing...yea! We were told the hospital would call us tonight and let us know what time we should go in tomorrow to be induced.

GUESS WHAT??? They just called me and they want me go in in 1 1/2 hours (1pm)! I'm so excited. Ben is taking a nap, he was up playing x-box really late last night, so I think I'll let him sleep for a few more minutes. Wish me luck.

Still No Baby :(

My due date was Wednesday, April 15th and tomorrow I will be 7 days past due.

I have tried everything to help this baby come. Lots of walking, spicy food, etc. I even heard that the dressing in the salad at Olive Garden induces labor, so I tired that. I know it sounds ridiculous, but I thought it was worth a try.

The good news is I'm going to the doctor’s tomorrow and if the baby doesn't come before Thursday I'm going to be induced. I’ll keep you posted. Wish me luck.

One Bedroom Apartment & Baby Room

Sorry, no baby yet :(

Now that that’s out of the way…I thought some of you may want to see our make-shift baby room. Since we're planning on moving to California in June we decided to make things work in our little one-bedroom apartment.

Do you like Ben's decorative touch? We think the hanging backpacks really add to the whole soft/neutral baby look. Does any one person need so many backpacks? I think not ;)

Ben is very handy. Not only is he making our baby’s crib, but he built me this changing table for temporary use (it only cost $15 to make).

Digital Scrapbooking

Learning to digitally scrapbook is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. It just seems so much easier than printing off pictures and buying paper, embellishments, etc.

My sister-in-law and I went to this digital scrapbooking open house last weekend. It was amazing! I learned so much in just 1 hour. Here are a few of my first pages.
