Elijah was born on December 7th at 12:01 am. He weighed 6 lbs 8 oz. and was 19" long. He was 6lbs 5 ozs. when we left the hospital.
I was induced around 5:00 pm on the 6th because my amniotic fluid was too low and his heart rate was dropping. I worried throughout labor because of his heart rate but he is here and absolutely perfect! I will post more pics when I have the energy of him and his brothers. Kortney is coming to meet him at the end of the month, and she is SO excited!!!

Very scary to be so close (about 35 miles), it could have been here.
I am overly emotional anyways and had to turn off the tv yesterday, I just can't stand the footage of body bags and destroyed homes. Especially so close.
Kortney called yesterday to ask me to come home where it is "safe".

This was so difficult to make. But I really like the way it came out.
This heart plaque sold right away on Ebay.

It's been very exciting here. Getting ready for BABY!! Jamie attended a big brother class and learned alot about babies. He even got to go to the hospital nursery and see the "real" babies!
I was invited to a football party at my friend Deb's house on Sunday. Imagine my surprise when I walked in and it was a SUPRISE BABY SHOWER!!! I was so SHOCKED! It was so much fun. Here is a pic of the cutest cake I have ever seen. It is made out of diapers.
Isn't that cute!!
Here are a couple more pics, taken by James and Mike. I know that they are fuzzy but at least there aren't any thumbs in them!
That's all for now, gotta go set up the crib!! :)
If you read this leave me a comment!! Please!

His name is...
and he kisses the baby about 100 times a day! And when he does I MUST say "You are a baby kisser!" If I don't say it he reminds me to!
Here's our baby kisser.
He's going to be SUCH a GREAT big brother!!!
He's lucky that I love him SOOOO much. Maybe I should cut it off while he is sleeping?!?!?!?

The boys are in the swing of things with school and Mike with football too.
Jamie wakes up at 6:00 every morning ready to go. He LOVES it. He is bummed out on weekends because he can't go to school.
Mike isn't quite that excited but he doesn't mind school. He really likes his Science teacher, Mr. Finnegan. He's "the coolest teacher in the world!
I miss my Kortney Loo like crazy. I wish she were here. It would even be worth wrestling her out of bed every morning!!
Here's some pics of the first day of school.
Note how dark it is in the pic of Jamie! The first day I woke him up and said "good morning" he opened his eyes, said "Mom, it's not morning, it's night time , and closed his eyes!
Also note the Syracuse attire on Mike!

We finally got too tired to wait for Ernesto any longer and fell asleep, about a half hour before he finally made landfall near Southport. We lost power overnight and this morning the yard was a MESS with branches but other than that (and being woken up several times by wind that sounded like it was going to take the roof off) it wasn't so bad.
Here's what the local paper had to say~
Ernesto came ashore around 11:30 p.m. Thursday near Southport as a strong tropical storm, according to the National Weather Service. The strongest wind gusts were 74 mph, reported at Johnnie Mercers Fishing Pier in Wrightsville Beach. The highest rainfall amount -- nearly 12 inches -- was reported at Surf City.The most common damage being reported this morning came from the wind, which downed branches and other debris. Heavy rain left some roads flooded early Friday, though only scattered pools of water remained this morning.
Piece of cake!! Even better news is that school was cancelled due to hazardous road conditions. I told Mike that school was closed so that kids could help their moms clean up their yards. He didn't believe me but cleaned up the yard anyways! What a good boy!
So to sum it all it all up,
12 inches of rain, a very looooong time waiting, and a few branches in the yard later and we are all fine!

We only have two more days of summer vacation. What else do you do on one of the last days? When it is raining?
Go fishing at the pier, of course!! Even Boomer went. James caught a huge ray or skate (I can't tell the difference), it was pretty cool. Mike looks pretty proud of it, doesn't he??
I posted the pic of Boomer swimming because I know that no one would believe it without seeing it!

Almost every day I read my ebay friend Rachel's blog and almost every day I say "I am going to start a blog." Then the next time I read Rachel's blog I say "oh yeah, I was going to start a blog, I am going to start one today" then the next day.... you know.
Well, today is the big day! I actually started a blog!
I am hoping this blog will help the people that I miss like crazy in NY keep up with all our going on's.
Of course, I know little to nothing about making a blog so be patient with me while I figure it out. Soon, mine will be as cool and entertaining as Rachel's. I hope.
