Life in Tennessee

We have been living in Tennessee for 4 weeks now. It is strange to be away from everything we know, but this place feels like home, too. The girls love it here. We have done some sight seeing and there are so many fun places to go. 
We arrived on a chilly Tuesday morning and we noticed some flurries on the drive up which made the girls so happy. Once we were inside our townhouse, a short and sudden snow storm started and we could barely see across the parking lot. It got so bad at times we had to stop unloading the Uhaul. How kind of God to give us a welcome like that! The natives were not as enthusiastic. :) Since then, there hasn't been anymore snow, but the weather has been gorgeous. We spend as much time outside as possible.
We have met some fun people and the girls have even made a few friends. We have been going to a church nearby and attended their Easter Egg Hunt for the kids. The kids loved it! 
Vito has grown so much in the past month. His top teeth came through, he learned how to get into a sitting position by himself and he is now speedily crawling across the room. Time to start baby proofing! He is just shy of 30 inches tall and weighs 18lbs 2oz. The same size as Bristol was on her first birthday. I have a feeling this boy is going to be quite tall!

The girls caught a stomach bug. :( Thankfully, only the two of them got sick and they were better after 24 hrs. It was a rough few days for me. After 3 nights with sleeping only 2 hours each night, Vito slept 7 hours straight! I went to bed when he did so I slept that long, too. Thank you, Lord, for that Thanksgiving gift! I feel rejuvenated and ready to introduce Vito to more family members this week.
He always manages to wiggle his way into a snuggly corner with the nearest object/person. <3 p="">

Chatting for Granny Kat

1 Month Old

Vito has grown so much already! He is a great baby. Always talking and smiling and a great sleeper! What more could a mom ask for? He is so snuggly. He loves his sisters and they adore him. 

At my 6 week check up he weighed 11lbs 12oz and was 24.5 inches long. My midwife couldn't believe how much he had grown already.  

Vito Price Walter

Vito was born on October 1st, 2013 at 6:05pm weighing 8lbs 12oz and 23 inches long. He was born in the water at The Birth Place in Winter Garden after 15 hours of labor. Our little family instantly felt complete the moment he was born. Jason and I are so thrilled to(finally) have this little boy.

Guess Vito's Arrival Day and Stats!

I thought it might be fun to have a baby guessing game for when Vito will be born and what he will weigh/how long he will be. If you want to participate, just click on the link and make your guess. Can't believe we are only 6 weeks(or so) away from meeting our little guy.

Update on Vito

At my last two appointments my belly measurement was behind so I scheduled an ultrasound to check on Vito and see how he is growing. They confirmed what I had hoped. He is very big and growing beautifully! He is just very low and this is causing my stomach to measure smaller. I opted for the 4D so that I could see his cute face. He is adorable and I cannot wait to hold this little boy in 11 weeks! As we were looking at him, Nana started talking to him and he smiled :) Already loves his Nana!
He is measuring about 10 days ahead of schedule and weighs just over 3lbs.
