Mac's first days at home

Our baby boy

My blood pressure was up and down during my hospital stay and the headache would not go away, so the decision was made to induce at 35 weeks. The process was started late night on June 15th. I had pretty mild contractions first thing in the morning and they were pretty close together so they didn't have to give me Pitocin at all. Dr. Vu broke my water at 9am and Mac was born at 12:15. It was rough, but quick. He weighed in at 8 lbs, 1 oz and he was only 35 weeks along! His blood sugar dropped and he was jaundiced so he ended up staying in the special care nursery for 6 days. It was so tough, but it seems like a distant memory now!

Introducing Gannon MacGregor (Mac)

Hospital Baby Shower

obviously I haven't updated in a long time, so I'll try to work back to the present...

I was admitted to the hospital in mid-June due to high blood pressure and really bad headaches. The girls had to reschedule my shower and they ended up bringing it to me in the hospital.

Thank you so much to my PEPS friends, you are amazing!

34 weeks with Baby Mac

Happy 40th Anniversary Grandma and Grandpa!

We spent the weekend at Grandma and Grandpa's house to celebrate their 40th anniversary. It was hot and the girls spent the entire weekend playing outside with Maddie and Bennett and soaking themselves in this fountain.

Our February trip to Little Rock (I know, I am blogging way out of order)

AT the Little Rock Zoo: Charlotte and Ava

A questionable tourist activity we stumbled upon in Hot Springs, AR (birthplace of Bill Clinton. The town, not the petting zoo)

LR waterfront, the girls adore their cousin Gavin

update on baby boy

Time has been flying and I am now 26 weeks along with baby boy. He'll be in our arms before we know it! Unfortunately, he doesn't have a name yet. Charlotte suggested "Lucifer" (after the cat in Cinderella). We have it narrowed down to a few favorites, now we just need to decide.
Here is the most current photo from about 2 weeks ago.

memory lane

I found this slideshow I made for Monte for charlotte's first year. Being overly hormonal right now, I got a little emotional and wanted to share.

It's a.................................

BOY!!!! We are thrilled but still trying to come to terms with the fact that there will be a baby boy around the house sometime in July. Charlotte was a little distressed, she really wanted a sister. Now we've just got to break the news that we won't be naming him "Prince Eric"...

New Van

We finally did it. We figured it might be the best way to function with 3 little ones!

misc. cute pics

The girls got new toddler sized headphones in preperation for our trip to Little Rock.

This was just cute.

This was Evelyn on Valentine's Day. It really needs no explanation...
