I have terrible news. MY COMPUTER CRASHED!! True story. Just days after the birth of my firstborn. I am beyond lost. How in the world are you all supposed to know just how wonderfully beautiful our little Braden is if I can't post 100 pictures a day of him? I am working on getting a new computer, or getting mine fixed, but in the meantime, I am computer-less. Thank goodness I am not pregnant anymore!! Thats all I have to say about that!

We are pleased to announce that on the dawn of June 4th of 2009, upon the waking of the sun (6:33am), Braden Alan Christensen, arrived in all his glory weighing in at 8lbs. 5oz, measuring 20.5 inches. He is so perfect and we are so in love!! Tons more to come soon!!

Well folks, my due date is SATURDAY!! Currently I am still pregnant with no signs of delivery anytime soon. Our Braden is just hanging out really comfortably, for him at least, in my tummy. I decided that a few final pictures wouldnt hurt and that I would be glad to see what I looked like in my last week. Sausage feet and all. Devin took a few, and I went to a friend yesterday afternoon to take a few more. It was actually fun and the pics all turned out a lot cuter than I anticipated. When my feet plumped up rather suddenly this past Sunday, my Dad was kind enough to mention that my feet looked they they were balloons. Interestingly enough, he was right. The swelling refuses to go down and the achiness continues to increase. Devin reported to me during Sacrament Meeting Sunday that he thought Braden would come on Monday. Monday has come and gone and I am still pregnant. Oh well. It was fun thinking that maybe the day was soon arriving. I have a feeling Braden is a stubborn little guy and that he is really just biding his time and is in no rush to meet us. Oh well. So in the meantime, we anxiously await his arrival, and surprising to some, we are more excited than everyone else to meet him. My hope is that by next Friday, 6 days after my due date, that he will be here. Summer is beginning and I have plans that include a baby and if he takes much longer than that, he is really going to throw me off!!

Yes, my tummy is totally lopsided.
He gets into the strangest positions sometimes.

I just want to point out a few of the things that I have done in the past week, just so everyone is aware that this whole 39 weeks pregnant thing is not getting me down. Although, I have spent a lot of time sleeping and resting, I played a game of kickball for FHE last night and not only ran the bases twice, but jumped into the air to catch a ball. And yes I got the out. It was a proud moment. Memorial day, we went camping. It wasn't my best sleep, but I was only slightly more uncomfortable than I would have been in my own bed. So bring it on Braden. I can handle you. Two more weeks is nothing.... who am I kidding. I will be dead in two weeks if I am still pregnant. Lets get this show on the road!!
