5 weeks early - Born June 29th at 4:19am 5 lbs 1 oz 17 1/2 inches. She spent a 5 days in the NICU to make sure her lungs were developed enough. She only needed help for about 24 hours and then she could breath on her own. We both came home on Friday July 3rd. Zach loves his baby sister and he is always worried about her. He is going to be the best big brother! He loves to throw her diapers away for me and give her kisses on the head. We took her to the Dr today for a one week check up and she had gained a few ounces already and the Doc thought she looked great we go back next week. We are all doing great considering that we were not ready at all! Thanks to Rhett for pulling a few all nighters to make sure the house was ready for us to come home! Thanks to the Grandma and Grandpas for helping out with Zach the past week and for running out to buy preemie clothes so Madison would have something to wear Also thanks to everyone that came to the hospital! we love you all--

This year Zach knew what to do on easter. A few days before we started telling him that the Easter Bunny was going to come and hide eggs and when he woke up that morning he could go and find them. He woke up and ran from his room saying "eser, ester!" He loved finding all the eggs and opening each one to find a prize. His favorite thing was the Golf Clubs! (Sorry the pictures are not in order.)
This is what Zach has been up too lately. He loves to be outside, on one of the good days that we have had so far this year he was playing in the sand box at Grandpa Johnny and Grandma Sue's house and he was digging and found a worm! He said Ewww! as he held it up.

I Know, I know I am the worlds worst blogger. I thought I would just make a quick post. Most of you know that we are expecting baby #2 !! So I am a few weeks passed the half way mark! My due date is Aug.3.2009 but will have a c-section in late July! This pregnancy has been way different than the last go around! We are very excited and have been trying to teach Zach to say baby sister! He is getting so big and can say so many new things. Recently he said his first sentance! "Put me down Mom!" He is starting to like movies and he loves to be outside.

Today Jodie and I took Zach to get a haircut at 'all about you salon' in Salem and Zach did awesome getting his haircut. He didn't cry or have any problems holding still even though he was a little nervous during the haircut. So when we made it home after buying him the treat he was promised Zach and I built a popsicle stick house as you can in the picture. As Zach would hand me the next popsicle stick he would act like he was getting the last bite of popsicle off the stick look me in the eyes and say num-num before handing me the next stick. I should have counted the popsicle sticks to see how many times this happened but I laughed every time he would say num-num. Simple story but it was the best part of my day.
