Crib got Delivered!!!!!

Here is where our "little boy" is going to sleep!!! You can see the new paint on the wall. All the goodies in the closet that mommy can't stop buying. When the crib got delivered mommy was freaking out because it was a lot bigger than she expected, after measuring and reviewing the size of the room and the changing station that is still on backorder, she ended up having to cancel the changing station. So now it is back to the drawing board for Nana and Vo to figure out what to get instead. (i think we'll go with the Larkin changing table from Pottery Barn, it matches the Larkin Sleigh crib, we have)

So now we can start focusing on the Garage Sale that we are having, once again if anyone has anything they would like to put in the sale just bring on down to the AC on Sept. 5th bright and early and hang out until it goes!!! If if doesn't sell it goes back with you.

"Work in Progress!"

Baby Logan is happy and healthy moving around in momma's belly (only she can feel it though). He is being sure to squish her intestines REAL good, if you know what I mean! :)

While Daddy has been working very hard to get the room ready for Logan. The paint is on the walls, the carpet is cleaned (throughout the entire house). Now he is going to work very hard, with "hopefully" the help of our favorite Uncle Mike, best contractor in California!!!! Thanks to that wise Unlcle Mike we are going to put down a cedar floor in the closet and then hang some new closet doors. Also with the help of Logan's Uncle Rosie, Mike Rosales that is, we are going to get the crown molding up in the next couple of weeks.

Here are some before pictures of the room,

It's a BOY!!!!!

After a week of stress and anxiety, our baby is healthy! And IT's A BOY!!!!

We went in for our Ultrasound and bloodwork for Down Syndrome testing, after the technician did the ultrasound he brought the doctor in to check out our boy. Doctor Traynor was Amazing! He showed us what they were looking at behind the babies neck and that he didn't really like what he saw. So, he gave us some options we could do the bloodwork go home and wait the 10 - 14 days to get the results, or we could do what is called a CVS (chorionic villus sampling), or wait until we are 20 weeks and have an Amniocentesis done. He indicated that with the CVS we would find out in 48 hours / 7 days.

OF COURSE we went with the CVS. What is a CVS? It is very similar to an amniocentsis, however the doctor is not going into the amniotic sac he is just taking bits of the placenta to test the chromosomes. If he gets enough of the placenta you get results in 48 hours if he doesn't than you wait 7 days. So, he numbed my belly and stuck the needle in (after all the needles I have had to stick myself with this was nothing, until it reached my uterus.) OUCH!!!! Well that was on Thursday, 30th. Dr. Traynor immediatly reassured us of the numbers and statistics and that him and his wife had gone through the exact same senario. When he was done getting his sample, he had gotten enough so that we would get the results on Monday.

Monday came and we called in for the results, but there was a little mix up with the paperwork so we had to wait now until Wednesday. But as everyone kept reassuring us, everything is PERFECT. He, yes remember it is a BOY, has all 46 chromosomes and no more or less. Now we just wait for............


to join our family. Keep up with the happy thoughts and healthy wishes. We still have 5 1/2 months to go!!!
