Meeting Midwife Sharon

My dad recently took a job with Umpqua Bank, which is great because he works regular hours (just 8:30-5:30) and the job requires no travel. The not so great part about the switch was having to change health care providers. Mom and Dad decided to go with Kaiser. It is familiar and the best deal for good health coverage. Although we loved our Providence doctor, Dr. Kocher (who was also Jonah's doctor), we were excited to meet our new midwife at Kaiser, named Sharon. She was great! She was totally on board with a low-intervention birth plan and said everything in the pregnancy was looking great so far. She even works in the same clinic as the midwife that delivered Jonah at Sunnyside. We feel great about the switch and look forward to our last couple prenatal visits with Midwife Sharon. :)

My Room

Well, I've got a crib and dresser in my room as well as a quilt and my name on the wall. So, I felt it was time to post a photo. Nana made the beautiful curtains when it was a guest room and we decided to go with the color scheme when Mom and Dad found out I was a girl. Nana also made my quilt and Grandma Jill (Kate and Baby Kiperman's grandma) did the quilting and binding. Don't you love the bright and cheerful colors?!

Here's a close-up of the quilt. Mom and Nana went with a fruit/polka dot/butterfly/flower theme on the quilt. Basically, whatever was cute and went together. :)

6 down, 3 to go

Mom is now six months pregnant so in just three short months I should be making my debut. As you can see, she finally got around to taking a belly shot, but hopes to get some more flattering ones taken soon (where you can see more than just her belly).

My brother, Jonah, wanted in on the photo taking fun so I'll throw one in of him too.

Also in the news, Jonah had a birthday party this past weekend and will be three years old tomorrow. It's kind of fun because he has several friends born right around the same time as him and I will have a little network of friends right from the get-go too. Here's a photo of Mom and her two friends, Sara and Jocelyn, who are all due right around the same time. This photo was taken at Jonah's party on Saturday.

I have been very active lately and sometimes Mom wonders if I am doing jumping jacks. You can see me moving (just ask my Dad and Aunt Mary) right now when I really get going, but it won't be long before there isn't enough room for me to really move around.
