Getting Ready...

Lulu pretending and Kimmy 8 1/2 months

Just got back from another visit to Boise.
It's an 8 hour trip and this time I went by myself.
I went to help Kimmy get ready for 
the birth of Silas.

Silas was on Kimmy's right side, the "wrong" side. 
The best position for a baby is on the mother's left side.
My Doula training has come in handy.
Exercises with the Rebozos helped!

We also got her "Home Birth" items 
and the newborn clothes freshen up and ready.
We had so much fun!

We also celebrated an early birthday for Lulu,
 who will be turning six years old.
She wanted crocs. 
Bright Pink!

 Ila May (almost 2 yrs.) and Levi (3 1/2 yrs)

These two are good "buds".

My next trip to Boise will be for Silas' birth!
Both Kimmy and I want me to be there, 
but how do you plan something like that?


  1. So lulu likes to copy Momma, that's a good sign! All the g'kids are so sweet to gaze upon.
    Well, you don't really want Kimmy to be in labor for 8 hours just so you can get there.
    But maybe somehow it will all work out!

  2. Kimmy is so lucky to have you! What a precious baby bump! You might have to drive those 8 hours pretty fast. :) Just kidding. :)

  3. So that's why I haven't seen a recent post from you. A good reason! I hope you make it for Silas' birth. Cute pictures of the grandkids. They make it worth the 8 hour trip.

  4. Hope you can make it there for his birth. What a blessing that would be. Your grandkids sure are growing up! :)

  5. The time seems to have flown by, but probably not for expectant mom.

  6. Aw...such sweet photos! I'm guess you'll be heading out the day before her due date...whether there are signs or not. haha.

  7. We miss you already! You helped me so much. I love you!!!

  8. I am crazy about that first picture! It brought the biggest smile to my face.

    You must be so excited about the great arrival of Silas. If he is half as cute as his siblings, you are going to have another cute one.

    You inspire me with the way you have "mothered" long distance. I feel certain that it will be the same for me when it's my turn, and you show me how it's done.

  9. It's not easy to time that trip. I drove 16 hours straight only to be a couple of hours late for Little Man's early arrival... Went early for Littlest Man's arrival... well worth the extra time... and who could not enjoy that anyway?! I am soooo excited for you all, Christine! And, my heart feels for yours over this distance.. blessings and hugs ~ tanna

  10. Hey, Kimmie's had a little practice with this. She may have a pretty good idea when you should head up that way. Just plan to stay awhile! She's so lucky to have you for a mom!

  11. Oh it's getting closer! Kimmy looks SO beautiful and the children well, they are simply gorgeous!

  12. I just nominated you to receive the Liebster Award. I hope you'll accept. Here are 11 questions for you to answer and check back on my blog to see posting details..

    1. Your blog title/name? How did it come about... is there a story?
    2. Books. Who is your favorite author? What is your style?
    3. Speaking of Style. Who/what inspires you in your wardrobe selection?
    4. If you're a mom! - Any advice you could share? If you're not... What do you wish you could share?
    5. In blogging.. Do you share your Faith? Why or Why not?
    6. Collections... What is yours? Baskets? Cookbooks? - How did you get started?
    7. Do you have that one "best friend" - what makes her a great friend? Give me just two-three words.
    8. Pizza or Stromboli? Would that be homemade or "Take Out"?
    9. Camera advice...is needed. What would you recommend?
    10. And your favorite flower is...?
    11. Tell me that one idiosyncrasy you LOVE about yourself..

  13. Kimmy is so blessed to have you for her mother. A long distance relationship is difficult, but I am proud of you that you drove it by yourself. I wish you and your daughter and family the very best, in the birth of precious little Silas. I look forward to hearing how it went. My prayers are with you through it all.
