Hooray! I finally got started!




Hello Everyone!


I have decided to finally start a blog so you can keep up with the Laukkanen family (of Texas). We are very excited and ready to add to our family-I (Casey) have been ready for awhile now...Heikki wants me and Suvi to wait until he gets home first! So he is due home tonight for 3 days. So hopefully Suvi will make her appearance soon. I have been very motivated to get things accomplished and really hope that means she is coming sooner rather than later (you know that nesting thing they talk about right before labor begins!). Anyways, I'll try to keep up on this blog so everyone can figure out how things are going and to eventually post photos for everyone as well!


I had my 39 week doctor visit yesterday and she thinks things will happen this week as well-Suvi is very low in the birth canal already and my doctor thinks labor will likely go faster this time (since she is already through my pelvis)! I am having intermittant contractions that get me all excited, but then they stop. Maybe she is waiting for us to finish painting her room-ha!ha! We are almost all done-just need to paint the ladybugs and touch up here and there. My mom is doing all the painting so we have to squeeze it in her visits. Her crib came and we are just waiting for the changing table. The pictures above are her room-I was trying to post them below, but can't figure out how to do that! Hopefully I will get better at this stuff soon. Bear with me in the meantime!
Maybe the next time I post I will have exciting news!
