Welcome to the world Isabelle Elise Makoutz!!!!

Who knew that when we went to bed Sunday night we would be waking up to our little bundle of joy ready to enter the world.
Isabelle was born April 6, 2009 at 6:13pm. She weighed 5 pounds 9 ounces, and was 19 inches long. She is a very healthy and happy little one. Hope you enjoy the pictures. I will write more about her arrival another time. Please know how much we love and appreciate all of you. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

Joe, Jess, and Isabelle

29 days (or less...)

Up until this point things have been fairly easy. As the time grows nearer, however, my body is beginning to become very uncomfortable in ALL positions; sitting, laying, standing, etc. Things are definitely pushing, pulling, stretching, and tugging. But putting that all aside we continue to look forward to welcoming our little bundle of joy into the world very soon. Joe and I feel very fortunate that the pregnancy has gone "normal", and that Isabelle and I continue to be healthy. Her heartbeat is always very strong and steady. We are counting down at this point, and going to doctor's appointments weekly. We have our hospital bags packed for whenever Isabelle is ready.
Joe continues to work very hard at Assurant, and I am in the process of preparing for a long term sub. So much to think about, and to prepare for. We thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. We will try to post at least one more time before Isabelle comes, and then the moment we have all been waiting for... :) We can't wait for her to meet all of her incredible family and friends.

We love you and thank you!
Joe, Jess, and Isabelle

36 weeks and feeling like it!
