Grace Catherine

Grace Catherine Barry was born September 22, 2009 @ 4:52pm. Our little princess was 7lbs. 8oz. and 20in. long. Labor and delivery were nothing short of a BREEZE!! It was fantastic! 2 pushes and she was here, my epidural worked wonders and I couldn't have asked for an easier birth! If they are all this easy, I may consider giving my husband the Barry family football team he so desires! Grace and Mommy are doing wonderful and are actually getting released from the hospital this afternoon--only a short 24 hour stay for us girls!

Jackson and Mommy photo shoot

A slideshow of pictures that a friend of mine took. I wanted to get some recent photos of Jackson and also a few before the new baby gets here of just him. I always hear that once you have more than one, they are always in pictures together! These were taken at a beautiful historical place in Camarillo, CA. Thank you Amy for taking time out of your day and tolerating my not so cooperative 20 month old! I can't wait for Garrett to come home and see these!

37 weeks!

37 weeks and counting! I go to the doctor tomorrow for my weekly visit and to schedule my final ultrasound. I'm still feeling pretty good, although the heat wave we've been having out here is really starting to wear on me. There is certainly NO room for Jackson on my lap anymore and picking him up is even more challenging! Not too much longer and my mom will be out here to help me in the final week and a half before our little girl is due! Garrett is really busy flying and preparing to leave Afghanistan and start the long trek home. I'll be glad when I know they are on their way home and I'll be that much closer to seeing him! For the most part, we are all doing great and looking forward to the arrival of our little princess. Well, I know Garrett and I are excited--Jack isn't going to know what hit him!
