Fisher Job

Fisher is here! He was born on Friday, March 12, at 8:10 a.m. He weighed in at a whopping 9 lbs 1.3 ozs and is 20 3/4 inches long. Mom and baby are both doing great, and we hope to be going home on Monday.

Here are a few pictures from Fisher's birthday:

Last Night Out as a Family of Three

It's T-minus one day until baby Fisher makes his debut. We're all set for a section tomorrow morning at 8 a.m. and we can't wait to meet him. We had our last ultrasound on Wednesday and despite the tech's best efforts to keep his weight down, Fisher still is a whopping 8 lbs 15 ozs. So our newborn outfits may not be fitting him for very long.

As our time as a family of three is winding down, we wanted a hang out night with just us and Trace so we took him to Chuck E. Cheese for one last hurrah ... and I think you can see from these pictures that we had a great time. Trace rode just about every ride and checked out most of the games, but his favorite thing was climbing up the play tubes and sliding down the slide. We'd get him distracted with a game or ride and as soon as it would finish, he'd run back to the slide.

He also liked to be able to put the "money" in the games himself and in a few of the games, he would add more tokens than were needed. We won 150 tickets too, so he had fun picking out a few prizes. It was a great night, and it's weird but exciting to think about this being our last night out with just us and him. I know he can't wait to meet his brother, and we can't wait to see his reaction to finally getting to meet someone that we've been telling him about for months. I know how hard its been for us to wait to meet Fisher, but for a two-year-old, I can't even imagine. Luckily, he doesn't have to wait much longer.

Here are some more pictures from the night:
