So yesterday I celebrated my 24th birthday with my family, unfortunately Deryck wasn't there to celebrate with us but I was lucky enough to spend all last week with him and he took me to a movie and out for ice cream while he was here. We went to PF and had fun just laughing and talking and then went back to moms and had cake and ice cream. I ended my night cuddling with the kids on the couch , with one sleeping baby in one arm and my little sleepy boy in the other thinking of how blessed I am to have such an amazingly close and supportive family and the two most preciouse gifts of all lying in my arms, I could not have asked for a better birthday.

Our Little Princess

Sorry it took me so long to post this. Evyn arrived Monday at 2:18 p.m. weighing 7lbs 6 oz and 20 in. She came so fast that the epidural I recieved was basically pointless and Evyn didn't even want to wait for the doctor to get ready, by the time he sat down to tell me to push she was already on her way out and with 2 pushes she was! So at least I can say that I somewhat know what it feels like to have a natural birth and all I have to say is women who CHOOSE to go all natural are not only crazy but the but man are they tough! Any ways it was nice to be able to go home the next day.... I hate hospitals. I am just so greatful that she is here and that her daddy was able to be there, it is kind of funny because I was scheduled to be induced at 7 in the morning but I went into labor on my own at 3 am. So here are some pics of our new little princess.

I got sick 3 days before she was born, Grant found my mask to be quite " silly"

So I had a false alarm Thursday night... I totally though my water had broke at around 9 p.m.... to make a long story turned out that what I was experiencing was from the doctor checking me earlier that day at my appointment, so everything was ok. However that night I started feeling sick, sore throat, body ache, ear ache, fever, the usuall flu like symptoms, so I have been sick for the past 4 days which has been absolutely miserable to say the least. I am soo glad that Deryck will be home this afternoon, I can't wait to see him, it has been a whole month! I know I will feel so much better when he gets here and can give me a blessing so that I will feel a little better before the big day tomorrow;) I will post pictures as soon as I can. Thank you all for your love and support for us.

Last appointment

So I had my last appointment this morning.. I have to tell you that I have never prayed so much in my life that things would go well today. But my prayers were answered and I haven't dialated any more from last week! So everything looks great with the baby but i still have to be careful for the next 2 days so that I don't go into labor. But I am just glad the countdown is almost over and I will finally be able to put my mind at ease once the hubby gets here Sunday. YAY!!

Count down to baby

So I have my last Dr's appointment tomorrow! It is exciting but I am nervous at the same time... at my last appointment within a week I went from a 1 and not thinning, to being a 3 and 50% effaced! While most women would be happy with this progression, I am just praying that I haven't dialated any more or else they will just have to admit me, and Deryck doesn't come home till Sunday. So I am just trying to take it easy.. which hasn't been easy considering I am still trying to get things ready for Evyn and Grant has decided to start his Terrib;e Two stage which makes everything a bit more hectic. But I have managed to get in an hour or two a day to have some "me" time which has consisted of me being crafty and here are a few of my finished projects for Evyn.

With us moving to Pittsburgh soon I decided that I deffinately needed to get a bassinet for Evyn, something that would be easy to ship out there. I purchased this bassinet for $10 from some lady, it was all white to begin with which I didn't like so I basically replaced all of the exhisting white fabric with something a little more girly.

I made her a Zebra crib sized quilt, and then later decided it was tooo plain so sewed some flourishes on it.

My diaper bag was looking pretty used so I decided to sew a new one with some left over fabrinc I had stored away. I like the way it turned out so I think that I am going to make another one with the left over Zebra fabric I have.
