Post Vacay Letdown & 4 mos pics

We just got back from a fabulous trip to Boise for James' sister's wedding and some time with my sisters. We loved spending time with everyone! And i'm ready to move there! I got to run the Boise River Trail a couple of mornings and i was in heaven. I love running in beautiful settings. It doesn't get much better for me. Now we need something else to look forward to because that has been our highlight!

Right before the trip, we got these pictures of Dane on his 4 month bday!

Its A Hard Knock Life for Dane...

I have stopped avoiding pictures of Dane crying because crying is what he does best. I got me a colicky baby. So here is Dane in all his glory. :) Luckily he is cute even when he's crying but I'm really hoping this phase is over SOON! And as i post this it sounds as if his 15 minute nap is up....

Now Where Were We...?

Well we just had a fabulous visit from my BF Heidi. She came in last Wednesday and left on Saturday and there was good times in between. But from the minute Heidi got in town Dane made sure that we all knew that we still needed to drop everything for him. Within a few minutes of walking in the door he had a major blowout with Heidi holding him. And as we changed him he did some more damage during the split second we had his diaper off to wipe down his back (more #2 and #1 as well). Welcome Heidi! :) We found ourselves saying, "Now where were we?" several times during her visit after one episode or another. But despite the episodes we had fun shopping for deals, trying her workout video, eating, and just hanging out with Dane. Heidi took some fun pictures of Dane including the one above. And as you can see from the pic i took of Heidi & Dane - Dane has become a big fan of Heidi!

Two Weeks Old!

We took these pics on Sunday when he turned 2 weeks. Doesn't he look grown up!? Now he is 8 lbs 9 oz as of this morning! Everyone asks us who he looks like - what do you think?

My First Mother's Day!

Our little Dane made his grand entrance on Mother's Day at 10:32 am. He was 7 lbs 15 oz and 20 inches long and we were relieved he is healthy and well. I had been worried about knowing when "its time" but my water broke during the night about 2:30 am and it quickly became clear we needed to get to the hospital. I dialated to an 8 1/2 - 9 very quickly and that is when i got an epidural and i'm glad i did because after that things slowed significantly. it was another 5 hours until he was born. James was really curious about everything and asked a lot of questions and took some pictures that i promptly deleted when i saw. :) But we did get a few good pictures of Dane that first day. Since then we've been more overwhelmed and we need to start taking more pics again. He is absolutely adorable and the pics do not do him justice. But here are some pics from the hospital:

Hopefully this post is coherent because this week has been quite sleepless! We can't wait to introduce him to you all very soon!

Janssen Projects

Below are a couple of pics that my sister Marnie requested. The first are our living room curtains i made a few months back. I'm working on some similar ones (more casual) for the nursery right now..

The second is a pic of the nursery. It doesn't look like much but i should have taken a before and after. We put in new carpet, painted the walls, removed old baseboards, painted and put up new baseboards. I sewed the crib quilt, crib skirt, crib sheet, and changing pad cover. Its just missing some personality/decorations on the walls! Ideas??

Baby Shower

I thought about making this blog private before posting pics of the shower and only inviting a few select people to have access, but that seems like a lot of work. So my laziness takes precendence over my vanity. The long awaited photos of Large Marge....

A couple of my friends and my mother-in-law and sister-in-law threw the shower. The food was fabulous!
My friend made this hooter hider! So cute!

This friend just had her baby on tax day last week. I'm jealous!

This was over 3 weeks ago now and so you can imagine how i've grown. I get bigger every day! The ladies at work don't think i'll last til my due date. I love the comments about possibly twins or shock at the size of my belly. Those who lack tact really come out of the wood work right about now! Gotta just laugh!

Pics of Baby Boy Janssen

These pics are exactly a month ago now - but i wanted to post them anyways. He is probably two pounds by now and in the pics the ultrasound lady said he was 1 lb 1 oz. So he has doubled since these! Maybe he just looks cute to me because he is ours!
We are heading out to Kansas City now for V-Day Weekend! Yeah! Happy Valentines Day everyone!

Team Blue~

I am always behind in my posts (if i post at all :) )
We found out last month that we are having a BOY! The ultrasound experience was awesome! The 3D pictures are so real! I just wanted to squeeze the little guy! He was sleeping and wouldn't move much. Everything looked great which put me at ease. James is obviously ECSTATIC that its a boy. Our good friends are due to have a baby boy 10 days later so he'll already have a best friend.
I'm getting larger by the day but only 3 1/2 months til D-Day! Hopefully it flies by.
