Deep in thought.....

Tyler and I thought this was a pretty funny pic of Miss Maizie!  She seems to be really thinking about something, probably eating!  :)

Newborn Photos with Angela Davis

Angela came back to our place today to do Maizie's newborn photos and she's already got them up on her blog!  She's super speedy, and sadly I am her blog stalker!  

You can check them out at'

I know she's mine but I think she is absolutely adorable.  

I can't wait for her 3 month photos I've already got her outfits picked out! :)  

One week old!

After a lovely stay at the hospital Tyler and I brought our little love home.  It was super nice having the nurses there for us when we needed them which was frequent, but we were all ready to get home just to get some rest.  It seemed like every time we were almost asleep a nurse or doctor needed to poke around on us.  

Here's here little going home outfit, she looks like such a Tom Boy in her Ole Miss stocking cap! 

Maizie got to meet her Auntie Tiffany and her cousins, Delia and Jesse from Nashville.  They were all in town for Thanksgiving

Maizie and her Daddy!

Happy Birthday Maizie!

Ok.... I am going to be doing some major catch up over the next several posts!  

So we will start from the beginning of this whole deal!  


We welcomed our sweet baby girl, Maizie Rae into the world at 12.27 p.m. by a planned c-section.  If you remember from earlier posts the little lady was breech and oh was she ever stuck up there.

Ok, pics aren't in any particular order, I am struggling to get them to move to be in order, so am calling it quits!   

All of these pics were taken by our Doula, Vanessa, she was such a great help that day and caught the most amazing pictures that Tyler and I will cherish forever!  Here are just a few! 

Then there were 3!  

First time I got hold Miss Maizie!  

Proud Daddy!  

Fresh new baby! 

Last belly photo!

Maternity Photos/ 37 weeks

I decided I wanted some belly shots done before Maizie's big arrival.  A little something for me to remember the last nine months and something fun for Maizie to have when she gets bigger. Of course Tyler isn't looking in half the pictures and in most of them I have a double chin but what pregnant woman isn't a little critical of herself!  :)  Oh well, other than than I love them they are all great!  

Angela Davis did the pictures for us last Friday, she does such a wonderful job, you should really check out all of her work.  She is also going to do pictures of Maizie's first year, so stay tuned for all of those in the coming months.   

Here's the link to her blog......

Other Maizie news....... we found out on Friday that she is breech!  :)  Yes, thats right bottom first! The doctor's been wrong about her position the whole time, but now we have confirmation.  So I've been laying upside down trying to get her to move and Tyler's been shining a flashlight on my belly and talking to my belly trying to get her to flip.  Anyway, so far no success and I am pretty sure CASH thinks we've totally lost it.  We're both a little bummed about the situation but are hoping that she gets things straight here pretty soon, but if not we will just do a c-section.  We are going back on Friday to discuss what we're going to do so she may be here sooner than later!  We'll keep you posted.  

Have a great week!

Growing belly, and CASH's new girlfriend!

This weekend 3 of my girlfriends from college came to visit to have a little pre-baby get together.  Special thanks to Lauren, Margy and Kristin for making the trip and for pampering me!  I really appreciate it and it was great to get to see you all.  This picture is of CASH and Lauren, who he pretty much fell in love with.  Actually, he loved all of them because he had 4 women to love on him.  He laid around the house all day Sunday, I am pretty sure he was depressed that they had left.   

My belly at 34 weeks!  Its really done some growing if you compare it to week 32!  :)

Cash knows...

That his little sister is coming soon!  

Tyler and I were watching some Monday night football and Cash went and laid all by himself upstairs on the landing.  The look on his face just screams, "my days of being the favorite are numbered."  Anyway, we thought it was pretty cute!

8 Months/32 weeks!

We've hit the 8 month milestone this weekend!  I can hardly believe she will be here in 7 or so weeks!  Everything is going really well!  We had a doctor's appointment this week and she is booty up- head down!  A position I hope she stays in for the rest of the pregnancy.  

The room is pretty much ready now, we are just waiting on the cushion for the glider and we'd like to find something else to hang on her walls, but so far nothing has struck us.  Anywho, here is a picture of my belly, and I promise to get some pictures of her finished room up here later tonight or tomorrow!

29 weeks!

Belly update!  Here we are at 29 weeks!  Just 11 more to go, I can hardly believe it!  

Tyler and I went to our labor and delivery class today, which was really great!  We got a tour of the hospital and both feel a lot better about the whole process!   We are ready to go whenever she is (which I hope isn't anytime real soon, it would be too early)!

We also got lucky that my sister's baby Taylor has arrived so that we can get a little practice in with her.  Yesterday, I successfully changed a poopy diaper, gave her a bottle, and burped her.  I am feeling pretty good about things right now! :)  

Taylor Rae Schrick

My sister, Stacey, delivered a healthy baby girl on Friday, September 12th!  She weighed 6lbs. 5oz. and was 19 and 3/4 inches long.  Both Mom and baby are doing great! Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy, she is so cute! 

The happy family! 

Big Brother Jacob! 

The proud Mammy!

I have some other really great pictures of Taylor but for some reason I am unable to upload them!  I am giving up for the night, but will try again tomorrow!  Enjoy!

Big Brother Cash!

It was brought to my attention that CASH hadn't made a blog appearance yet so thought I would share this cute picture.  My nephew Jacob stayed the night with Tyler and I a week or so ago and all CASH wanted to do was sleep with him.  He jumped off the bed (yes the bed) and snuggled in next to Jacob on the floor without waking him.  It was pretty stinking cute!  Hopefully he will love his little Maizie as much as Jacob!

My oh my what a month will do......

We had another sonogram last week and Maizie now weighs 1lb. 8oz.  She doubled in weight in just 5 weeks!  Quite the growth spurt if you ask me! Needless to say I've had a bit of a growth spurt myself.  :)

We also sort of hit the jackpot when our nurse asked if she could play around with the sono machine of course we said "yes".  Little did we know she was going to be able to give us pictures of Maizie in 3-D!  They are really cool and sort of a sneak peak at what she is going to look like!  She definitely has my nose! 

Oh yes, another note worthy item is that Tyler was finally able to feel Maizie kick from the outside, so he is pretty thrilled!  
Maizie's sweet little face!  

Doesn't she look like she's having a good time in this one!  :)

Another cute little foot photo!  

6 month baby belly!

5 Month Baby Bump and Nursery Stage 1

The blinds are up!  
The room is freshly painted, thanks to Tyler!  Of course, we had to get the crib with bedding up just so we could see what it was going to look like!  I think its going to be so cute!  Like Tyler's mom Terri said "if you don't wake up happy in this room, I am not sure where you will!"  
5 Month Baby Bump!
