Here are a few more pics over the last couple weeks. We caught our 1st smile last week and has been doing it alot more lately. We thought at first Braxton was an exact replica of Jarrod, but over the last couple weeks he is starting to resemble his Mama a bit. :) I know in that one picture it looks he may have Jarrod's BIG BLUE eyes! We are still crossing our fingers, but at his 1 month appt. today, the Dr. said if he had to guess by the color they are now, that they will be brown.
So, we have been so blessed to have Braxton in our lives. It is a big change, but totally worth it! My mom came out just 2 days after Braxton was born and stayed for a week and then Jarrod's mom came out the following week. So, we did have a lot of help and are finally getting used to things and are working on getting the little guy on a schedule. He really has been a good boy. He doesnt cry too much-I hope I am not jinxing myself :), and we even do a trip out almost everyday. At his 2 week check up he had gained a full pound, so we know he likes to eat! The doctor says he is on the right track and he is perfect! Here are a few more pics, b/c I am know I have been slacking on the posts!

As some of you may know, Today is my Due Date, March 24th, and NO Baby Yet! :( We still have a few hours left, so I guess you never know. I have a feeling he will come tomorrow or Monday, at least we are hoping that is...
But since he doesn't seem to want to come out too quick, we are going to induce next Friday, the 30th-which is funny b/c its my Birthday! But, I am getting the best birthday present anyone cold ask for! So unless, he decides to make his debut before then, we will have a baby by next weekend!
We just wanted to give everyone a quick update and a picture of what I am looking like at 10 months!
For real this time, the next time I post, Braxton will be in the pictures! ;)

I wanted to get one last post in before little Braxton arrives. I have a little less then 4 weeks left until Braxton's due date, March 24th, but as you know he can grace us anytime! I have started going to the doctor every week now and everything looks great! My tummy is measuring perfectly and he is facing head down. We are doing another ultra sound this wed., just to see if we missed anything. My doctor likes to do one last one, just to make sure everything is A-ok.
I have also had a lot of people asking for belly pics. We had one of my best friends, Laura, to take maternity pics yesterday. I have included a preview. I am finally getting bigger! :)
I will post pictures as soon as I can after he arrives! Miss everyone!

The nursery is ALL finished! I have even washed all my newborn outfits and have them organized in his closet and drawers. :) And today, we made his Crib skirt. That was pretty funny watching us use the sewing machine! But I think overall, we did a great job.
The "nesting" part of me is pretty much finished and I couldn't have done any of it without my loving and especially patient husband!
We miss all of you very much and the next time I post, Braxton will be in it! :) CRAZY!!!
P.S. I am now walking around without my cast! Woo Hoo!!! I still have a bit of swelling every night, but overall I should be back to normal in a few months!
PLEASE SEE BELOW for my Baby Shower pictures!
Love- Ashlee and Jarrod
Ok. So, I have been driving Jarrod crazy will all of my "nesting." I just want everything to be perfect before Braxton tries to come! One of the projects I put him on was a headboard and side table's for OUR room! We decided to hit the flea markets and make the headboard ourselves. We found our side tables for $5 a piece and decided to use the rest of the blue from the baby's room to paint some of the bad parts. It kinda gives it a more funky look. As for the headboard, we did all of this for less than $100!! Well, Jarrod did most of it, but I tried to help as much as I could. :) I think it looks great! So, most of my house is ready for all my visitors to come! Please see pictures!
