We're all set. The bags are packed, the rooms are ready, the clothes are ready, I"M READY!!!!! SOOOO READY!!!!! for Silas to arrive. We had our appointment this morning with the ob and he gave us the news that the hospital was booked for surgery on Monday morning. The earliest available appt. was at 5:30 in the evening. This would mean that I would not be able to eat, drink all day long.... which would result in me being very very sick because of the "morning" sickness that YES, I still have. As much as I would still be willing to go through all that for Silas getting to be here, and me not being pregnant any longer.... Dr. and Bob said no. The new scheduled c-section (and this ought to be chiseled in a stone tablet) is Wednesday, April 27 at 7:30 am.

The Rooms are ready!!!! After much much much hard work and a month of Saturdays... the boys rooms are ready to go. carson moved into his new "big" boy room about 2 weeks ago. This room includes shelving which Bob made (proud smile) that will work as a perfect table/desk with his wheelchair.He is able to slide right in and have a area that he can play on.
He loves the cars.... we are constantly having to go along the road and talk about the cars.

Yes, that is a big boy bed.... and yes, I cried.

Here's the shelving. Way to go Bob. :)

Now the nursery. :) I chose a cowboy theme and i set out to find some cowboy gear. Well everything was just too pretty or too expensive. My Uncle has been in ranching for years so I sent my aunt a message asking if they had anything leftover that I might take a look at it. :) HUGE YAY!!!!! She brought me some amazing things and I couldn't be happier with how well they fit into the room.

These were my cousins when they were little. :)

There we go!!! The only thing missing is the quilt, the boots and the hat. They will be up as soon as I can get the laundry caught up. :)

And what would be an update to the blog without some pics of a cute smiling face. :) Here's Carson.... He is watching his favorite videos on Youtube.


  1. I LOVE the cowboy decoration!!! And the Silas rope! So so cute!!!
    (sorry, manly).
    Carson looks all ready to be a big brother! Good Luck.

  2. Wow! Who knew Bob's last name was actually "Villa", not Orr? (hahaha!) What a handy man you've married, Kare! And how cute are those rooms!?

  3. Yes, I'd say you are ready! Carson is getting so big. I bet he can't wait to meet his little brother. Thinking of you!

  4. Look at all his BLONDE hair! :) He's so precious. And the rooms look adorable! Great job and CAN'T WAIT!!!
