Where did all the time go??

Once again it has been way too long since I have posted anything. Time goes by way too quickly! First here are some more baby pictures in totally random order.

Gabe is already 11 weeks old! He had his 2 month check up a couple of weeks ago and he was 11 pounds and 7 ounces. It has been so much fun to watch how much growth he has already had! Daddy is so proud, Gabe loves to watch basketball on T.V and when commercials come on he'll cry. I have no idea how he knows the difference between commercials and the games at 2 months! He also loves to talk. We can lay him on the floor and talk to him for hours and he will smile and talk back the whole time. And I am sooo grateful that he is a good sleeper for momma too! He usually sleeps anywhere from 4-7 hours the first time he goes to sleep, then anywhere from 2-4 hours after he eats again! He is such a happy baby, and a pretty good drooler too. The only thing you can't mess with baby boy is his food. He wants his food when he wants it! (I wonder where he gets that from :) ) Oh and I almost forgot, his very favorite thing is to snuggle. He absolutely loves sleeping on your chest (especially daddy's).

As for Kane and I we love being parents! It is so much fun to watch Kane be a Dad, he takes such good care of our boy and loves snuggling with him. He helps out so much to let me run and do things that I need to do for myself. Kane is still working and going to school, and I had to go back to work 3 weeks ago. It is kind of nice to get out of the house however it is so unbelievably hard to leave baby boy at home.

Yay he is here!

So I'm sure everyone has already heard by now but we had our baby boy on the 28th! We went in that morning at 7:30AM, the day actually went by pretty fast... until the pushing! After an hour and 15 min of pushing he came at 6:23PM. He ended up weighing 8 lbs 1oz and the doctor said if he was any bigger we would have had to do a C section so I am so happy we decided to induce that day! So happy to have him here he is adorable, rough first night of sleeping, but I'm sure it will get easier with time. Here are a few pictures of him. This first one doesn't really look much like him its pretty funny, the rest of the pictures look exactly like him. He has some dark hair and it looks like he has lots of cowlicks (Sp?) so I we are hoping his hair is curly, well just have to wait and see!

Still waiting...

For our baby boy of course! I have absolutely loved being pregnant, however I am so ready to hold our little guy! I have been dilated at a 2 for 4 weeks now! At my last doctor appointment I told my doc that I was going to cry if I was still at a 2, so of course his response was that I am "almost at a 3", and that was a week ago. The good news is that we decided I am going to be induced on Thursday! I am so excited I cannot wait! I do have mixed feelings about being induced, I would love to have my baby come on his own. However, the doctor told us at 33 weeks that our baby was going to easily be an 8 pound baby, kinda scary. Also I am going insane waiting, I can't drive anywhere far due to the fact that my belly is so big and my legs are so short that my poor tummy rubs the steering wheel. :( So sad. We could have picked any day this week to be induced but we picked Thursday because it was Kane's Daddy's birthday (for those of you who don't know Kane's dad passed away) so it will be fun to make that day a happy one again! So I will just have to keep myself busy tomorrow and try my hardest to get some sleep tomorrow night! Wish me luck!
Also I have a camera again! Jessica got a new camera for Christmas so I was able to inherit her old one! So here are some pictures:
My friend MandiJo was so clever and took a picture of her feet when she was pregnant. I though it was hilarious, so I had to as well. I might have waited a little too long to take this picture because to even see my feet I had to lean over my belly a bit. Hehe so funny.
Here is our Crib, I love it!
And some more pictures of the baby's room...

Thanks to everyone for all the gifts!

Few more cakes and an update..

So on Nov 2nd Kane and I had our 3rd year anniversary! I was so excited, we took the day off to be together. We don't have any recent pictures of us so I thought it would be fun to dress up and take some pictures, then we were going to go to the Olive Garden for lunch, and just spend the rest of the day together until Kane had a basketball game he was playing in that night. Unfortunately that didn't really work out. We spent all day getting Kane's car fixed, it ended up needing a new catalytic converter. So $720 and all day later we decided not to go to lunch and we didn't have time to take pictures. Long story short my mother-n-law was so sweet and took us to the Olive Garden so we could still have an anniversary meal(our tradition), and I was at least able to take a new belly picture after Kane's basketball game. It's not a picture of the both of us and I am not dressed up, but I thought it was pretty funny. I'm holding a basketball, but you can't really see it because that's how huge my belly has gotten! The picture still doesn't do it justice it feels so much bigger than it looks! Next... here is a couple of pictures of a cake I made for Dee for her birthday!

And this is the cake I made for my friend MandiJo for her Baby shower last Saturday.
She was originally planning on a lady bug cake then decided to to the baby! So here is Baby #3...
And that is pretty much what we have been up to!

Weekend of cakes!

This weekend was so much fun, I was able to do what I love all weekend! I had 3 cakes to make, 1for a baby shower for a friend, the other two were for a joint birthday party for Katie and Bradley's birthdays this month. I also put on the birthday cake I made my brother back in July. And here are the results...Above was the cake I made for my brother in July. He was making a fountain in his backyard, so I made my own edible version :)
This cake was Bradley's birthday cake. It was starting off really cute, until I decided to try and make him look real and scary... that part didn't turn out so well, I'm better if I make cute cakes.
However, it did taste very yummy!
Above and below are pictures of Katie's birthday cake. I should've put up pictures with their birthday candles on the cakes because it made the cakes look adorable!

And below is my favorite cake that I made this weekend, this was the cake I made for a friend who was hosting a baby shower. This cake is similar to the other baby shower cake I made so it may look a little familiar (other than the fact this is a white baby boy who is bald).

I love making cakes and I get to do another baby shower cake in a week for another friend. Again I will post the results, this one will be fun I think she has decided to do a lady bug theme. I have decided that I really will have my own home business for making cakes, it won't be official for a while but in the mean time if anyone would like a cake let me know and I can totally do some here and there!
