Baby Update

Here are some pictures of us and the baby this is before having the baby... yes I can still smile at this point :) The hospital was awesome though! Mike basically got all the facts right did I mention the epidural didn't work. I think everyone knows the story so no need to write it all but if anyone has questions feel free to leave it as a comment.

This is how we get him to smile his chin is ticklish or something :)

Baby's Here!!!!

Hey Guys,

So this will probably be the one and only time I do this blog stuff because I have no idea what I'm doing. Anyway, our baby officially known as Michael John Boria III or "Trip" which is what we're going to call him arrived this morning at 7:57a.m. weighing in at a hefty 8lbs 60z and 21in long. By the way just to clear up any confusion we are calling him Trip because he is "the third" which goes along with "triple" which is how we get "Trip". So anyway besides the baby, Jill was definitely the star of the show last night. We showed up for the hospital last night at about 7 because she was scheduled for induction today. For about 3 weeks she hadn't dilated much so the doctor decided that Jill would first come in to the hospital to get some medication to speed up the process and then be induced with pitocin for what was thought to be a long and painful labor. Little did we know that the gel stuff they gave her sped up the process to warp speed and at about 3 am she went into active labor. Active labor was really tough considering they tried with the epidural and it totally didn't work at all. At about 730, Jill was ready to push our little guy out and with a few good pushes he showed up at 7:57am. It was literally the most incredible thing I have ever seen and I was amazed and inspired by how great and strong Jill was......sooo.....Ok as some of you may already know, Trip was the 1st baby boy born at St. Joe's North which made him a little celebrity. We got a lot of great stuff which ill let Jill tell you about and we were on the news Ch. 13. All of that was pretty cool but because of all the craziness going on today I wasn't able to get any pictures up until now. So to all of you who wanted pictures earlier sorry but too bad lol. Sorry if this post rambles but like I said earlier first and last post for me the new and very excited dad. Enjoy the Pics!!

The baby is due tomorrow but....

I thought by now I would be blogging about my beautiful new baby boy... not so much! My doctor assured me that our baby would be coming early due to the fact that I was 1 centimeter dilated 4 or 5 weeks ago. When I went in this past Friday I was still 1 centimeter dilated, and if that news wasn't depressing enough she told me that because my body isn't responding I need to prepare for a LONG labor. I guess the babies head is ready to go and I am having a ton of contractions, pressure, and pain but my body isn't doing anything about it. I will be one of those 30+ hr laborers. The other news we found out is that by this week our baby should be around the 8 1/2+ pound range and by next week which is when I will be induced if he doesn't show up on his own, he will be in the 9+ pound range. I realize a few of you have had 9 lb babies but I am sure it won't be as pleasant an experience. So that's the update... if any of you feel like eating a bunch of chocolate just give me a call although I don't know if that will help with the babies' size. :)

Family Baby Shower

My Family baby shower! I didn't get pictures of the tables they were so cute. My church baby shower my mom has all the pictures which she only got a few, so those i'll post later. Showers are great but having them 3 and 1/2 weeks before your due date doesn't make for great pictures! This is my mom, aunts, gma, cousin, and sister in law.
Nancy and I :)

Harry Potter Land!!

Yes, like most people I love Harry Potter! Which is my only justification for going to a theme park 8 plus months pregnant in the middle of the summer! It was so hot, 98 degrees! Luckily Mike and I rented a power wheel chair which made life great! My parents came with us so it was really fun. My overall assessment was that the shops and things they have to offer are really great but in a whole the area is very small and most of the places are just fake stores you can't actually go into. Still it was really fun!

Because of the prego restrictions I wasn't allowed on the ride in the castle. So I sent Mike to check it out because he had to let me know how it was. He said the ride was really awesome and of course we will go back once our baby decides he wants to come out. I did however do the castle tour which let me see inside. It was really well done. I wish they had a place to eat in there!

Waiting outside the three broomsticks! The food most of it was actually very good just not a huge portion. And order a lot of butter beer that was amazingly tasty but VERY sweet!

We stopped at Olivander's first because the line was insane luckily because we stayed at one of the Universal hotels they let you into the park an hour early so it wasn't bad for us! We did get wands :) I know we are cheesy!

Prego pics!!

We decided to try and take some pictures on our own obviously this isn't professional and is it just me or do these pictures always come out looking like a wannabe/chubby/cheesy version of a magazine cover? Oh well here they are anyways obviously i'm a far cry from a model. SIX WEEKS AND THREE DAYS TILL THE BIG DAY that is if he's on time :)

As always fishing is part of going to the beach condo. Gotta love the feeling of catching/cleaning/scaling/cooking your own dinner?! And yes that is my 93 year old grandpa and yes he's still fishing!
