Weighing in at 7lbs

That is right, baby Lacey is already 7lbs! Lacey is laying comfortably on her back head down, which you wouldn't think would be comfortable. Mom and Dad Squillace flew in for Christmas from Minnesota and were able to see Lacey on the screen. This was a blessing for me to be able to share the experience with my parents since they live so far away. Mom met the doctor that we hope will be delivering Lacey January 13th! Since Lacey is big, doctor has chosen to induce labor. It was a shock at first, but we are feeling better about the idea. I was hoping for a natural labor experience (water breaking...), and it still could happen. If not, this way my mom is able to be in town and I will be able to have my doctor deliver. Essentially I will be admitted to the hospital Thursday night and be hooked up to an IV. That morning the doctor will break my water and induce labor. Crazy how it can be so scheduled. I am trying to relax and really enjoy this time I have with Lacey in my belly. Ian and I are delighting in the anticipation of our lovely daughter being born. We continue to pray for a healthy baby and smooth delivery.

Happy New Year,
The Shaws

Lacey is Showered with Love

Lacey had her first baby shower this weekend and it was beautiful. Thank you to Amanda and Jennifer for making the day absolutely precious in every little way. With glittering Christmas lights and accents of pink, the day couldn't have been better. Thank you to everyone who came and made this day so special.
