Paisley Leyva ~ Welcome to The Leyva Life

We welcomed Paisley Leyva into the world at 9:30 am on March 24th. She is so beautiful and just perfect! She weighed in at 8lbs and 6 oz, 20 3/4 in long. The C- Section went so well, I am feeling so great (pain meds are wonderful), and our sweet Paisley is practically perfect! She has been such a good eater and sleeper today, and really when you are hours old you cannot ask for more. Here is a picture that my sweet friend Bree took today so that I could post her pretty little face for you to see. Oh and for those wondering, we are still deciding on a middle name, that will be coming soon. We just like the suspense. ha ha

Twas the night before baby girl....

and all through the house... ok, well I am not going to spend time being clever. I just wanted to say I am getting ready to go to bed and I am so excited for what tomorrow is going to bring. We are going in early tomorrow morning to have our baby girl!! Cannot wait to see her little face and kiss those little fingers and toes. We are so blessed!!
So off to bed I go with visions of sugar plums (or sweet baby girls) dancing in my head.

Basketball Champs

Last week Rabu's two boys basketball teams won the city championships for Tulsa Public Middle Schools. Both the 7th and 8th graders had close games that kept us fans on the edge of our seat. Congratulations to the best coach in Tulsa!! I love you!
Way to go Thoreau Timberwolves!!

Lexi's new Love - The Park

We have been to the park a few times in the last week taking advantage of this beautiful weather and enjoying our last week with Lexi bear as an only child. Rabu says that there is nothing like watching your daughter enjoy something as simple as going to the park. Here are a few pictures. Enjoy!

Baby Girl Update - two weeks to go

So two weeks from today I will be holding my sweet baby girl in my arms. I am so excited. Here are a few pictures of her room. It is mostly ready, I just need to find a rug and hang up the wall decor. Rabu is going to change out the celing fan during his spring break next week. Once we get all that done then it is finished! It has been a lot of fun getting her room ready. With life as crazy as it has been it is nice to get away to her room and just think about her coming to join our family.

We are a lot closer on a name!! Yay! We have a few that we like and will wait until we see her to name her. We would tell you our names, but what would be the fun in that? It's just two weeks away!

We went and had some maternity pictures taken with the family. I have not seen the proofs yet, but I think we got a few of Lexi with the baby belly that were pretty cute. I am excited to see what the photographer captured. We are trying someone new but she takes some really great pictures.

Mostly now I am focusing on getting things done at work. Being a CPA and due in the middle of tax season wasn't the best of planning, but I did not plan this one God did, so He is working this one out. :) I just have to remember to rely on Him for strength and organizational ability to get done what needs to be done not necessarily what I want to get done. (Sometimes I want done more than needs to be done. )

Baby girl is a mover and a shaker already, it is so fun to watch my belly move around. It is so amazing when I take time to think that my sweet baby is being formed and crafted in my belly by God Almighty!! I just can't wait to hold her and look into her sweet little face. We have been so blessed with Lexi bear that I just know that the second one is going to be just as much of a blessing. We still have moments where we ask each other, "um... do you realize we will be parents of two very soon!" It hasn't really sunk in even after 9 months. It will become reality very soon!!

We will keep you posted on all the goings on in the Leyva house as we are awaiting the arrival of baby girl. Yay, baby girl, we can't wait to see you!!
