2 weeks old....

Here are some more pictures of little Joshua.
The poor kid is always being flashed in the eyes by the camera!

His cord came off, revealing his very own . . . outie!




Here he's doing some "Ra-ra-ra-ra-ra!" -ing for the BYU cougars.




With his daddy.





Enjoying himself in his swing.

He Made It!!

Joshua Emerson Karoly

Mom made it too and is recovering well from a long labor. Joshua is a cute little er big baby that is well, such a joy and blessing to have in our lives right now. What a glorious blessing from our Heavenly Father!

(P.S. This is a cell phone pic. We'll have more pictures up soon once we get the pics off the camera - we left the cable at home)

Lots of people there helped work on a rocketship quilt for Jr.

Just a-waitin'.

I know what you're thinking....how can she be blogging in the hospital? Is she not just a little busy with other things at the moment?

Well, the truth is, I'm not in the hospital. In fact I'm doing just fine, here at home, like always. Just waiting here, with this big ol' tummy, for these contractions to actually do something. I told Jr. to come yesterday (as well as many other days before that) but he doesn't seem to be listening. Oh Jr., when will you ever listen to your mother?

I guess he'll come when he comes, but they'll induce me next week if he can't make up his mind soon...and I would really rather not be induced.

I took some pictures of our little nursery, but alas, our laptop is no longer working so I can't upload them. You'll just have to imagine our cozy dark green micro-fiber rocker/recliner in the corner, our dresser topped by a blue and yellow ducky diaper bag, and our cognac wood crib complete with blue sheet, dust ruffle, and baby bumper pad. And just yesterday we put an ABC quilt brought to us from Hawaii on the wall above the crib-- yes, our son will know the alphabet at only days old. He'll be a smarty pants.

Any day now.
