Xander John Peterson has arrived!!!

We are so thrilled to say that Xander John Peterson is finally here!! He was born yesterday, Friday the 28th at 12:39pm!! His vital statistics: 8 lbs 5 oz and 21 inches long and a 14 1/2 inch head circumference!! He has a PERFECTLY round head with just a little bit of brown peach fuzz. Everything went wonderful. Ellie and Aeryn were so glad to see him and loved being with him. They were a little afraid of me with my IV and other tubes, but they gave Xander alot of big sister love. Here are some photo's. I'd write more, but we must get back to our little baby!! We will continue to add updates as we have new pics!!

Aeryn Started Preschool!!

Today was Aeryn's big day. She has been talking about starting school for months. My mom got her this really cute outfit for her first day of school. She looked so adorable. When we actually got to school, she had a major meltdown. Screaming, crying, hysterical. I ended up having to stay and sit in the corner of the classroom. I was bummed because I had all these plans for what I would do with my 1 1/2 hours. Oh well, I guess that is the way things go. Hopefully it gets better before the baby gets here, otherwise I don't know what I'll do!!

Feeling a little Emotional!!!

As I was driving home from work last night, I don't know exactly why, but I was feeling very emotional!! I should have been thrilled because it was my last day of work before the baby comes (3 weeks from today and I'll have the c-section). I was excited to be done with work, but was feeling a need to focus on important things in my life. I have been reading a book about opening your heart to other people which in turns help you to have a closer relationship with God. I've been trying that, maybe that is why I was more emotional. Anyways, I got thinking about my "Poppa". It has been 2 1/2 months since his passing and I was really missing him. He was really such a wonderful man. I love this picture. It is of me with my Nana and Poppa in Disneyland when I was 2 or 3 years old. I love this picture. We all look so happy. I am not sure how they were happy while hanging out at Disneyland with a 2 year old, but it must have been okay.

These are just some other pictures that I like. I really feel grateful to have had my grandpa such a huge part of my life. He was a great example and a I appreciate that. I always felt bad that he had to go through his battle with Parkinson's, but he never complained. I feel sometimes like I am kind of wimpy and get cranky, but I was reminded of his positive attitude with life.

I guess I just wanted to remember my Poppa today. I miss him alot and I am so impressed with the strength that my Nana has. She is continuing to live life, as Poppa would have wanted, and continues to be strong and graceful. Poppa...I love and miss you and I am grateful that my girls were able to know you!!
