Sneak peak at my maternity photo shoot

Last Thursday evening, we headed to Bricktown to meet up with Randy Coleman for my maternity photo shoot. Chris took the pic below with his phone and I CANNOT wait to see the pictures that Randy captured. He took pics of me, me with the kids, Chris with the kids, all of us together, and some with just me and Chris.

Macy is his assistant, who happens to be Randy's brother-in-law's niece. Confused? Macy is our good friend, Chris Fitzgerald's niece (we actually meet her when she was 12 or 13, now she is a Sophomore in College) and Chris married our good friend Christie (who is Randy's sister). Understand, now? :) Randy is in South Africa on a mission trip, so I am TRYING my hardest to be patient until he gets back. It's not working that well. Will post some pics as soon as we get them from him, hopefully soon!! If you are in need of a photographer, Randy is one of the best! This is the second time he has photographed our family and we have him set to photograph Lukas' entrance and also newborn pics. Love, love, love his work!

Weekend fun...

Gavyn was invited to a friends house for a birthday sleepover and then Mikah also was invited to a friends house, so Chris and I ended up with a date night! We went to eat at POPS (I was craving a Dublin Dr. Pepper which they have in bottles as well as fountian) and this was a pic I captured of the sunset outside the car window. So beautiful!

After dinner we rented "The Book of Eli" and watched that. Very good movie, has violence and cussing. But seriously a movie worth watching.
Chris and Gavyn snuggled up on the couch! She was worn out after her sleepover and painting (see pics below).

Mikah and Gavyn were bored and so I suggested that they paint, and oh boy did they paint! Gavyn stopped after 4 or so pictures (they are on the right of the pic), but Mikah kept going and going! He was painting anything and everything he could think of, toys from his room, a b-day card for his grandpa.
Here he is painting the alien from Toy Story! I think the boy has talent! :)

Preparing for Lukas

We are slowly getting everything ready for the arrival of Lukas Samuel, only have 8 weeks left, so it's crunch time. I put the Bassinett together all by myself one night while Chris was working. I'm pretty proud and so thankful we saved the instructions! Next up is his crib.

We found this awesome bag at a store called Collected Thread located in the Plaza District, we love it so much that we decided that orange and gray are going to be the colors for his crib (that is if we can find fabric that we both agree on). My friend and co-worker Danna embroidered his name on it for us and we love the way it turned out.

I purchased the first of many re-usable diapers from Green Bambino. I'm so excited to try out cloth diapers! I am choosing them over disposables for cost as well as environmental reasons. The more I researched, the more it made sense for us to go with cloth diapers. And oh my word they are SO cute! Can't wait till Lukas is here and wearing them.
