Grandma came to visit when Camero was born.

She did lots of snuggling, some cooking and errands, and generally made our lives easier

and a whole lot more fun!

Our New Camero

Our newest addition joined our family on September 16, 2011.
He weighed 8 lbs 13 oz and was 20.75 inches long.

His first picture - he was just a few seconds old. Right after this picture was taken, he started to gasp as he cried. He ended up in the NICU, thanks to a pneumothorax.

The sad picture.
This is in the NICU. AT took this pic for me because I couldn't go see him yet. This was definitely the LOW point.

The happy picture - going home!!

At home

with LOTS of big sister lovin'!

First Day of Pre-School

Audi had her first day of pre-school yesterday. She was so excited that "Beemer's old school and teacher" are now all hers. She had a great day and said the best parts were snack time and reading time! That's our girl!

(Don't you just love that pose?)

Catching up...

I am finally reaching the last week of this pregnancy and have decided to make up with my computer and catch up on what we've been doing while I was feeling too crummy to blog.

So, the last nine months, we have:

had a fabulous Christmas;

survived a pretty crazy ice storm (this is the beautiful part of it);

made snow men (note the snow level in the background - this was a snow day here);

celebrated Audi's third birthday;

went to Disney on Ice while visiting friends and family in Utah (sadly this is the only pic I have of the trip);

spent a morning at the St. Louis Temple;

made new friends;

were silly;

had a birthday party for Audi's favorite baby, Triangle Head;

had a slumber party when cousins came to visit (again this is the only pic I have of their visit);

attended Beemer's Kindergarten completion program;

went camping;

spent as much time with friends as possible before they moved;

read in the sunlight (I LOVE this pic);

started first grade;

got spoiled by our families;

and now we think we are ready for this baby.
