Welcome Parker James Nixon!

Thursday, January 8, 2009 at 5:53 pm (Oh Baby!, Parker)

What do 6 nights in a hospital bed, 4 different IV’s, a 6 inch incision,  a complete and utter fear of blood pressure machines, and very little sleep get you?

Perfection! That’s what. (And he is well worth anything!!!)

We welcomed our sweet baby Parker into this world on Friday, January 2, 2009 at 1:52am. He weighed in at 6lb 12oz and measured 20 inches long. He is happy, healthy and completely loved! Things are very busy (and tiring) right now but I plan on writing about his birth very soon…so stay tuned for Parker’s Story.

Until then, enjoy this incredibly adorable photos of our new little guy!

38 Weeks

Christmas day marked us at 38 weeks. It was a good Christmas but I have been sick from a stomach bug and didn’t feel the greatest. Projects are slowly being worked on and completed but the virus definitely put a little crimp in my plans…and so, no pictures once again. Soon, though-very soon!

The reality of late pregnancy is here. Getting ready for the picture is no longer a priority when you’re this uncomfortable!

The nursery items are getting close to being done…I just can’t post the pics until it’s ready. Nothing like waiting until the last minute to finish up, huh?

Weeks 30 and 31

31 Weeks

31 Weeks

Things are going great! We traveled to Dallas this weekend and had 2 baby showers. One was from our church friends at Allen Bible and the other was Nixon family and friends in Arlington. Thanks to everyone for making this such a special time for us! We had a blast with all of you!

This week has been crazy busy. James started another job with Grainger (along with UPS) and is loving it! We are also moving into our new place and we’re planning on spending our first night there tomorrow! My mom and I are working hard at getting everything unpacked and ready. She is so wonderful-I truly don’t know what I’d do without her! Her and my sister (who is also fabulous!) worked out there this weekend and cleaned it all up and got it ready for the move while we were in Dallas. This was such a sweet ministry that they performed for us and a fantastic surprise! (The duplex is brand new and hasn’t ever been lived in but it needed vacuuming, mopping, dusting etc.)

So-I know I’ve promised pics soon of nursery and projects and they WILL be coming soon! I’ve just got to get it all done and decorated first.

Does it already look like Parker is dropping? I’m not sure when this normally happens and perhaps it’s just because I’m growing but in my 31 week pic my belly looks lower to me. What do you think?

I have finally added some some pics from a recent session. That poor blog has been ignored for so long but I decided that today was the day I’d change that! Go check out Ryan’s senior pictures. He is quite photogenic!

Our “Wooden” Anniversary

Friday, October 24, 2008 at 9:25 pm (Fun Times, Get outta town!, Love Sweet Love)

James and I celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary on the 18th. We spent the afternoon at a corn maze and pumpkin patch in the booming town of Southwest City, Missouri, which is about 45 minutes away. (Please note: Southwest CITY has a population of 917 people. Insert your own witty comment here.) We had a lot of fun just being together in the great outdoors. During our trek through the 7 acre corn maze we ran into my sister and her family. Small world, yes? It was fun to see the nieces and watch them go down the big roller slide (see pics). Anyway, we had a great afternoon and then went here for dinner. And I ate the following for dessert. It is one of the greatest desserts known to man. And. I. ate. almost. an. entire. slice. myself. Shut up. I’m pregnant.

Here are some fun pics of the day. Somehow I missed getting a pic of my oldest niece going down the slide. 😦 Notice the intense look of concentration on James’ face as he goes down the slide. He was seriously trying to get as much speed as possible. And yes, I too went down the slide but it wasn’t bumpy or anything. My sister assured me it was safe enough so-after much consideration I went for it! You might be able to tell from the picture that  I (unlike my hubby) was trying to not go too fast. But that was for Parker’s sake, not mine. We plan on taking him here next year.

 

 

 

 

 

 


We had a really great day and we’ve had a wonderful 5 years! I love you Baby!!!
