davis holbrook woolsey is finally here! i'm so thankful that he's no longer crammed inside my body and that he is now an oxygen breathing human!! :) he was born right on schedule, april 12 at 7:23 am, weighing 6 lb. 15 oz. and was 20 inches long. total perfection. all 3 of us love him so much! i won't bother with the boring details of how tired we are and how hard going from 1 to 2 is and just tell you how sweet he is and how much we love him. :) campbell is completely smitten with him and loves to check on him and rub his head and kiss his nose and hold him, etc. they're best friends already. here's the proof that he really exists... there are more where these came from, so stay tuned! thank you all for your thoughts and prayers!

we started our easter holiday off by dying easter eggs and i remembered and found this post from last year - oh to see the changes in campbell in just one short year! on one hand, i wish time would slow down but on the other hand, i'm really enjoying seeing her grow up and learn something new everyday. what a joy and blessing she is to me :) anyway, we had our 2nd annual egg dying with amy and elly and enjoyed our time together. and unfortunately i only got 1 picture of her in her cute easter dress and you can't even see her whole outfit...boo then after church, we came home and had my parents over so cam could hunt eggs at our house and our final easter festivity was to go to my aunt and uncle's house for easter dinner and a big egg hunt for all of the little cousins. campbell had a great time and we read a lot of great scriptures as a family recognizing and being thankful for the new life that we have in Christ and about His sacrifice. i'm so grateful that campbell and this new baby have such solid examples of how to live a life set apart from this world. i don't know why the pictures and the words aren't lining up right...i'm kind of computer illiterate; i'm sure there is a way to fix it, but i don't know how. update on brother: as of last wednesday (36.5 weeks) i was 2 cm dilated and i go back to the dr tomorrow to see if i've progressed anymore. i'll be 38 weeks on wednesday and its hard for me to believe that i'm almost 4 weeks more pregnant than i ever was with campbell! i'm also way more uncomfortable physically than i ever was with campbell! :) i guess if i have or haven't progressed, the c-section is still scheduled for a week from friday. wish us luck! here is my (hopefully) belly picture at 37.5 weeks and ps, aren't you loving cam's fake smile?! :) it kills me. i say smile and that's what i get...

last weekend a few of my best friends threw me another sweet baby shower! this baby is already loved so much by so many and for that, aaron and i are so thankful! kate, courtney, and carmen threw me the most perfect, personal baby shower. it included any and all things 'amy' :) they served sliders, cupcakes, chips, dr. pepper, queso, and gummy candy! ahh, i was in heaven! and once again, brother was given so many adorable outfits and such. and for an update on brother, the countdown is on! i go back on tuesday to get checked before my doc goes on a long vacation (yikes!) but as of now, i'm still not dilated at all. tuesday is also going to be my last progesterone shot, so who knows if my body will progress while she's gone because i won't be having this medicine in me to keep brother cooking a little longer. if all goes according to plan, we've got 3.5 weeks until d-day. and an update on sweet campbell, still working on potty training and still progressing for the most part...today wasn't such a hot day, but overall i'm still pleased with how she's doing. she wakes up dry most mornings and she pees in the potty wonderfully (9 times out of 10) and we're still trying to tackle pooing in the potty. keep praying for patience for aaron and i :) we need it! otherwise, all is well with the woolseys!

this is easily the most frustrating phase of parenting i've experience in campbell's almost 3 years of life. oh.my.word. we started a week ago yesterday and she has made much progress, but those first few days were a real struggle. we're (she's) spending a lot of naked time laying around and now she's finally starting to let me know when she needs to go instead of me making her go try. still wetting the bed almost most nights, not every night, but most. i fear i've waited too long to train her and i fear i'm cutting it too close to brother's birth, but i wanted her to at least know the basics of it otherwise i knew i wouldn't have the emotional or mental stamina to tackle it for probably 6 months at least. we're taking baby steps and today at least, i'm happy with the progress we've made. i went to the doctor last week and she decided to start checking me to see if i'm dilating since campbell came 6 weeks early. i've been getting a progesterone shot in the rear since 20 weeks to help act as a preventative of early labor and apparently they're working because i'm not dilated at all. i go back next week and then i think i start going in on a weekly basis. yikes. still trying to finish things up in the nursery and getting our bags packed for the hospital and putting the carseat in the car. if he decides to come early, i'd prefer it if we were ready this time :)

i have a couple of big/fun things to share today! :) for those of you who know me, know that i have a brother who is 2 years younger than me. as of yesterday around 11:00 am, he is an active duty naval man! he's enlisted in the navy and yesterday was when he was sworn in and he left for an 8 week bootcamp in illinois! we're all so excited for him, as he really feels like this is where the Lord has been leading him and he's excited about making his life a little more structured and disciplined. so we thew him a cousin's night/going away party. for several years our family has these days that we like to call 'cousin's night' where a handful of us play risk the board game and the rest would play spoons. unfortunately, we've done away with spoons and now we just sit around and chit chat and then all have supper. so we knew kyle would love a cousin's night before he left, so that's what we did. we all surprised him by wearing some navy shirts :) and in case you're wondering who the person is that you may or may not recognize, its his girlfriend, brittany. next was my first baby shower! i have the best small group in the world! i've had most of them since they were in 4th grade and now they're freshmen! i can't believe it! so they told me they wanted to throw me a shower ever since i told them i was pregnant. they worked so hard on making it perfect for aaron and i and they totally succeeded! they made it a baseball theme and they had baby corn dogs, baseball cookies, bottled pop, and popcorn! :) we got lots of baseball garb, cute clothes and lots of gift cards for all the essentials that i'll still be needing to buy just ignore the weird looking belly...i didn't realize how funny it looks for someone who is 8 months pregnant to be squatting for a picture! my it looks like i have a watermelon falling out the bottom of my shirt! ha!
