May 26, 2011

Ok..only 1 1/2 months behind in this...
We have been pretty busy though...

Amelia Pearl was born on April 26th at 3:56pm 7lb 7oz 18 in long
2 weeks early, just like her brother.

The delivery was even easier than her brother. On my first push, the nurse only counted to 8 then she told me to stop, because Amelia was right there..I started to laugh because it reminded me of Tait's delivery...she then told me to stop laughing because that was basically pushing....My dr was right outside the room, so the nurse called for her, she ran in, threw her scrubs on, and told me to give her another little push...and here she was!
I am afraid that if we were to have a 3rd child, that one might just fall out!

Tait isn't too comfortable with her yet. He loves her..because when he goes to bed every night he gives her a hug and kiss, on his own. He also thanks God for her in his prayers. But he doesn't want to hold her. And getting a picture of the 2 together has been pretty much impossible.

Fast forward to today...May 26th
Amelia is 1 month old.
You know how you always hear parents say, "You never think you can love a second child as much as the first...but when that second one finally comes along, you do" But its so true! I love both of my kids so much!! God is so amazing at putting families together. I am still in awe of our beautiful kiddos, and even though some days are rough, I can't imagine life without them!

April 11, 2011 last post was done on Dec. 14th...
I am a few months behind I realize.
I kind of feel like maybe I should get this started back up again since baby #2 is
almost here...of course I might not have any time with baby #2 on her way...
we will see how things are going and if I give up or not...but here goes my attempt!

We have been keeping busy trying to get things ready for little Amelia to arrive.
Tait moved into his big boy room/bed almost exactly a month ago. And he has done
GREAT in his new bed! Not once has he gotten out of bed on his own. When he wakes up,
he sits in his bed and yells for me or Justin to come get him....which is WONDERFUL!

Since we moved Tait into a new room...that means his old room is Amelia's nursery...
Now ever since I found out we were having a girl, I have imagined how I would decorate
her room....I knew I didn't want anything too girly...but I did want some pink!
After getting some ideas online, I came up with this idea....Color scheme: Gray, white, black,
and pink. With owls!
I cut out the owls, flowers, and branches on viny with my cricut machine...I tell you that thing
is the best!

The picture frame is right over the crib, I found it at hobby lobby..on clearance..for $3.20!
I LOVE finding deals! I am such a bargain hunter!
I finally found pink paper lanterns..took me a while, but I was able to find them at a party
store..since then, I have seen them at a couple other places....of course!My mom is making Amelia's bedding...the quilt and skirt. She is close to finishing it and I will be sure to post pictures when she is done.
I am due in less than 1 month..and I am SO ready!
I have mine and Amelia's hospital bags packed and ready to go...(something I never got done when we had Tait) I still have to pack a bag for Tait for when he is staying at my parent's or
Aunt Pat's house.
I have a dr appointment this morning...kind of hoping she will give me an idea of when this baby will come..she had told me originally that I wouldn't go full term because of some blood pressure problems...but I have been on medicine that has helped lower it a we will see what she thinks now.
I am ready and so very excited to meet our little girl!!

Day #12 of 25 days of Christmas

blogger won't upload my photos from last night...

Yeah! Got them to upload finally!
Sunday night we went to our Church's Christmas Musical. It was very good! Best one yet!
Tait LOVED it...he loves anything to do with music and dancing..this had both! He sat across
the aisle from us with Dave and Susan Thurman, one of the ministers and his wife...I could hear
him say things every once in a while...especially when the live donkey came out for Mary to ride off on...He kept saying "eeaawww, eeaawww."They had candles up there at one point...and he yelled out "Hot!" The boy cracks me up! He did really well though...the musical kept his attention for the whole 2 hours!
Here is a couple pictures of our friend Angela, and Aunt Pat who were both in the musical.

Day #11 of 25 days of Christmas

Sorry for no post yesterday.
We went over to the Bungard's to decorate cookies with Kellie, and Nikki's kids.
I..having the wonderful "baby brain" that I have, left the memory card to my
camera in the laptop at home..rrrrr.
We made some Christmas goodies at Grammy's house. We made 3 different kinds..we would have made more..but mom and I talked for a long time instead of starting on the cookies right we will have to get together again to make more.
Tait had fun helping! ...and eating the chocolate..between christmas cookie decorating lastnight, Ava's birthday cake/ice cream, and today's cookie making..Tait has had more sweets in the past 2 days than he has had in his 2 years of life!
