Meeting Her Iso Isa

My father was not able to see Aarikka until she was almost a week old because of sickness (Thank you father for keeping her health in mind...I know it was hard waiting that long to meet such a sweet little girl) I thought this was a precious picture of her meeting him for the first time. For those of you who do not know...Iso Isa is Grandfather in Finnish. Thus also where we got the spelling for Aarikka.

Seriously...She cannot get more adorable!

My Little girl..OH so cute!

Girlified Carseat

Well since we have boys most of the stuff we have is boys colors. Our infant carseat is blue, blue and blue. I wanted to make it girlie. So I found a tutorial on etsy and this is how it turned out... By the way I LOVE IT!!!

Big Brothers

Austin and Aaron are fabulous big brothers. They LOVE to hold their sister, and they do a fabulous job with her. Here are some fun pictures of them loving her.

My Little Burrito

Aarikka LOVES to be wrapped up like this...I think she looks like a little burrito. Look at her size on the zoomed out picture...she is so tiny....she is in preemie clothing at this moment, but I know that will not be for long.

Oh so ready...to have this baby!

I NEVER felt this way with my two boys...but this little girl is definately taking a toll on my body. I know partly it is because I am at home with my boys, and not at work sitting in front of a computer all day.
A. Every morning is like clock work....I need to empy my empty stomach....yes very fun! YUCK!
B. My body aches sooooo much, I dread going out because I know I will either have to run after Aaron, or carry him...not much of a choice. I have resorted to bribing with candy (this habit will stop as soon as the baby is born and does not always work)
D. I KNOW I was not this BIG with Austin or Aaron. I am definately HUGE, not weight wise...but belly size wise. (I am actually going to come out weighing less that I did before I was pregnant..a plus...but due to item A...I think mucus has calories)
D. I am sooooo emotional. Last night I just wanted to cry...just because...
E. I do get anxiety from time to time...never EVER did before....
F. I am ready to be done...
G. I am secretly scared to go into labor naturally, Austin was not fun. Loved being induced with Aaron...I knew what and when to expect, but that happened 4 days late, don't think I can wait that long.
I. SERIOUSLY This is how I feel...not look but feel!

HunDuddle Hussy Vlog!

No...it is not dirty. Actually quite halariously awkward! Definately going to be one of my daily stops. I already have to read her family blog daily, because she just says it how it is and hits the nail on the head. So...if you haven't check it out, stop by and enjoys some humor. I wish I have the courage just to let it out!

MASTER'S DEGREE....here we go!

After Chris graduated back in the end of August 09 with his Bachelors, we weren't sure exactly where his path was going to take him... In January, he got the feeling that he needed to go and get his Master's Degree. We both prayed and felt that it was the right thing to do...so here we go. WOOT WOOT! I am actually very excited for him and our family for this...

He started last week, and we are looking about 2 years of school till he graduates. I can handle 2 years. I think 33/34yrs is not a bad age to get his Master's Degree.

His work schedule actually makes it probably the best time for him to go through the Master's Program.

So here is to you sweetheart!, good luck, and I am in full support of you. I LOVE YOU!
