Auntie Amber was the first visitor Dinah had in the hospital. She and her boyfriend (future husband) Chris had been at a concert out of town when we called them. They finished up there and Amber came on to the hospital. (Chris was leading worship at church the next morning and had to go to bed.) It was the middle of the night and there was a terrible thunderstorm going on, but we had a cozy time hanging out and taking pictures of our little miracle.

Although now that we are expecting our second baby we want to dust this guy off and get it going again. The whole blog will probably get a redesign soon, but don't count on it being too soon. The main reason I don't blog is because of chasing the one year old around. She doesn't approve of mommy being on the computer, so unless she is napping or something I can't really use it.
Anywho...this was just to say "we're back!" I'm going to try to post a few Dinah related things here in the next few weeks. I never did get around to typing out her birth story and I would like to do that. Also I'll put up some posts about her first birthday, etc. Then we'll move on to baby #2. That little one is not doing much besides growing right now, but when we have some more details like gender, name, etc. we'll let everyone know.

These are the Dinah letters that a lady Christian works with painted for us. Such a thoughtful gift!
Canvases that I painted with the help of my friend Lindy and Dinah's Aunt Amber.
This is where the new changing table will go...this shelf will stack up on another one we have in the room and holds clothes and her stuffed animals.
Shelf with toys, books and other fun stuff. If you look closely you can see the pictures of Alice and Dinah my friend Jen Johnson drew for us.
Well, stay posted to here or facebook if you've got it. We'll be making announcements as soon as something starts happening!

Tomorrow marks 37 weeks, so that means that baby Dinah will be considered "full-term" and really she could come any day now. I am definitely ready to meet my baby and I am more than ready to be done being pregnant! I have sausage feet, trouble sleeping and now to top it all off it is allergy season and the pollen is affecting me much more than normal.
Christian and I are feeling more and more ready to welcome Dinah when she comes. Her room is looking good, we've picked a pediatrician, almost all of our "big" items have been bought or received, and some last minute items are slowly coming in (we have our two work showers this week). We go to pick up her diapers next week so we can get them "prepped" for her.
Tonight we go to learn how to care for newborns at our hospital. I feel less freaked out by actual labor and delivery after our birth class, so maybe I will feel a little less freaked out about being completely in charge of a little person after this class. Although I hear that you never stop being freaked out about being a parent!
Christian says that he has another post all planned out, but he was waiting for me to post again before he would do it. His stuff is always better than mine...so I am sure it will be more interesting.
We'll be sure to keep everyone updated if (and when) we go into labor and Dinah is threatening her appearance.
Oh, and I'll have Christian take another couple pictures of me and my belly. I am looking pretty huge these days!
