Hospital Class for Carson & Addy

I signed up the kids for a 'big brother/big sister' hospital class at Good Samaritan's hospital where we'll be having our baby in just a few weeks! It was an hour and a half and the kids loved it. The lady leading the class let the kids (about 8 total) ask any questions they wanted about the baby coming and mommy's stay in the hospital. We got to tour the labor and delivery rooms as well as the postpartum rooms. They got to look in all the drawers, try out some of the equipment, and get a general idea of what is going to happen (i.e. how their lives are about to change in a MAJOR way!). The last half of the class was devoted to learning how to hold, diaper, and swaddle a baby. They loved it, but let's just say they won't be helping right away!! Since the hospital is under construction (and, by the way, why is it that hospitals are ALWAYS under construction??), it was good to know where to go and how to get there. And it was nice seeing how nice the family birth center is....I was ready to just check myself in.

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?
