Corbin Savage Allen is finally here! He is one week old today. Born on June 17th. Weighed 7lbs 10oz and 20in long. Time goes by so fast. :] He is everything we could have asked for. He's pretty calm for the most part. Only cries if he gets too hungry or if he's frustrated because he can't latch on. He does pretty good for the most part. It's an amazing feeling to look at him and know that he has just left Heavenly Father's presence. He just said his goodbyes to Shelby Drumm and now his beautiful spirit is in my arms. Gives me chills. :]

Corbin had his first Pediatric appointment on Monday and Dr. Strauser says he is as healthy as can be and is highly unlikely to have colic. :] He is on the low end of the scale for his weight but he is slowly gaining it. He's got the cutest monkey arms and legs. :]

Thanks a ton to Aunt Beverly, Sarah and Rabecca for being there for his beautiful (but painful) entry into our family. It definitely wouldn't have been the same without their support. Aunt Beverly did a great job coaching me but I'm not sure I did a good job controlling myself during hard labor. Matty was wonderful also. He was right there with me every second of it, encouraging me.

I NEVER thought I would be IN love with two guys. ;] I could not be happier.

Two More Weeks!

We're now at 38 weeks and we can't be more excited. I can't wait to have my body back. Being Pregnant has been a blast and then at times...a bit uncomfortable. I am looking forward to my last day of work (before Maternity Leave) which will be June 11th and then Sarah will be here! It's going to be a good month. Not to mention we have a trip planned to Cannon Beach in mid July with the Allen family! Such a good summer ahead.

Can't wait to post pictures up Corbin Allen. He's going to be a stud.

My stretch marks started to appear at 35 weeks. I was hoping I'd make it all the way with no stretch marks. Guess I don't have the 'Good skin' Genetics. :] Oh well, Matt still finds me Hott. Corbin and I are still racing to beat Rachel and Shelby to the delivery. Rachel has a huge advantage over me seeing how this is her fourth. :] We can still take them! teh heh

I love you all and hope we can see you soon. Pregnancy has made me miss my family so much more. Our families are growing so fast. <3

Ta Ta for now.
