Blake Wayne Mecham
Blake joined our family today at 1pm on the dot. He weighs 7 lbs. 3 oz. and is 21 inches long. He looks just like Kellen except his eyelashes are not as long.
I am doing great and I have been up and walking.
Blake on the other hand Blake is in the Special Care Nursery (also known as the NICU), he has some fluid in his lungs and is breathing fast. They are running tests and so far they don't think that there is an infection so now we need to wait and see if and when the fluid either be absorbed by his lungs or he coughs it up. They are keeping him in the nursery untill his breathing is under control. Hopefully that will all be soon and he can come into my room.
Cooking with Kellen
I was so busy yesterday trying to get everything ready for the baby that I felt that Kellen and I needed to do something fun together. Kellen loves to help me cook and so we decided to make chocolate chip cookies.
What good chef doesn't taste the dough to make sure it is just right.

Enjoying the fruits of our labor. I think Kellen ended up eating 3 cookies, so much for dinner.

For anyone who doesn't know I am going to have my c-section today at 12:30. I am hoping we can post some pictures today or tomorrow. If not check my sister Nicole's blog (Jason and Nicole), she will probably post some. Wish me luck.

Maternity Pictures
Shawn's sister Nicole took some maternity pictures of me a couple of weeks ago so that I can remember how huge I am. Thank you Nicole. The pictures turned out great and I am glad that I did it since I don't have more than a handful of pictures of me this pregnancy.

Kellen kisses my belly every time we mention the baby. Usually he lifts my shirt first, but I will spare all of you that visual.

I love how this picture turned out.

Me and my boy, soon to be my boys.

Of course what is a photo shoot without a few pictures of the always photogenic Kellen.

Check out Kellen's vampire shot. Shawn and I knew that his fangs were long but this is out of control.

So I got this idea from my cousin and thought that it would be fun so post any memories that you have about me or Shawn. But please don't post anything too embarrassing since I know alot of you have some pretty embarrassing stories about me.

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you know me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you.
