First Bath

Brayden was able to get his first bath last night. It was so much fun, even if it did make him mad. After he was soooo relaxed and is still sleeping great, only wakes up to eat and get his little diaper changed. We are hoping this lasts!!!!

Week 1

Here are a few random pictures from the week. Its so hard to believe one week has already passed by---he is already growing up too quickly for momma!

Meeting the Family

Here is some of Brayden's family meeting him for the very first time. Ofcourse he hasnt gotten to meet everyone yet, but we look forward to when they do. They are all already spoiling him so much---we look forward to many more visits soon! Thank you for all of the emails, prayers, visits and gifts, we appreciate everything everyone has done for us.

The Crib

My dad Bret is making the crib and it is in its final stages of being finished as we speak. We love it, it looks like something out of a custom baby furniture shop----I had given him several pictures of what I wanted, cribs I had found at pottery barn, babies r us, etc, but this turned out SOO much better. He ordered the parts that have to be to code and once they got there got to work on this great piece of furniture. The best part is he made it so the back will come off and we can use it as a headboard once he is in a big boy bed. This is one of our presents given to us by my parents and it is so special that it is handmade and designed by him. Thanks again guys!!!!
Look for pictures of the stained finished product SOON!!!! Then we will post pictures of his room and the quilts my grandma made with the farm theme print.

Baby Bunco

Last Friday my sisters threw me a baby shower and for the main shower theme we played baby bunco. Last year one friday a month I played Bunco with my mom and some other ladies from the neighborhood, so my sisters invited them along with some of their daughters and my friends. I dont think I got any pictures of us actually playing, but my sisters made the cutest onsies as gifts for the baby. His aunts are already so crazy about him! It was great to play with everyone again, and everyone celebrating for us and showering me with gifts was so appreciated. All of the work my sisters and mom put into made it such a nice and relaxing evening. It was a much needed girls night!

Arent these personalized onsies made by my sisters the cutest?!?! We got so many other cute outfits and great gifts, I cant post them all, but be sure to look at upcoming pictures once he is here, because he definetly will be displaying them. My mom got us the cutest little slugger outfit, we are thinking depending on the weather and how big he is, that may be his coming home outfit.

Birthday Dinner

My parents took our family out for my sister Brooke and my birthday. We went to my favorite restaurant MIKOS---a great Japanese teppan restaurant. It was great having my sister home, we havent had a family dinner with all of us in forever. BIRTHDAY GIRLS!!! My sister and I are 10 days shy of being a year apart, when I was little I couldnt wait to turn a year older so that I still felt like the big sister---these days I dont look as forward to rub it in her face that I am a year older--I can only imagine how the tables will be turned when we get older---LOL. This Saturday is actually my real birthday and I am hoping sometime this weekend Nathan and I are able to celebrate a little---maybe we will have one more date night before baby gets here?!?!? But thats not a hint to the hubby or anything ;)

33/34/35 Weeks

The Flinns have been pretty busy the past couple of weeks. Last weekend we moved to a townhouse giving us more room for baby and ourselves, and the best part is I am closer to work, YAY for not as much $ going to gas---my biggest pet peeve for the moment! Yesterday we had a doctors appt where everything is still looking great! Next week we go for another ultrasound and some other tests to make sure he isnt getting too big in there and were both healthy. Then one more week and we are considered full term....I cant wait to meet my roly poly little boy. For now we are almost completely unpacked, besides the items we had in storage---and we are working nightly on getting ready for is a picture of daddy tackling one of the many "baby gear" items that needed to be put together. I will have more pics after this weekend, my sisters are throwing me my last baby shower where we will be playing "baby bunco", and hopefully we will have pictures of all of our hard work we are planning on doing--- where our goal is the have the car seat installed, the rest of the items put together, the laundry done, and all the remaining needed items bought = shopping---my favorite part ;)
