Quiet Please!

Jason learned last night that watching football this season will be a little different than all the others! Thanks goodness for TiVo.

Who does Kate look like?

Take the poll on the right side of the page. I can't really decide who she looks like and we hear something different from everyone we talk to on who she favors. I thought this would be a fun way to see what most people think.

Two Weeks Old!

How time flies! This past friday (the 24th) was her predicted due's crazy to think that she has already been here for 2 weeks now. And in the first two weeks of her life I have had to do more laundry for her then I have ever had to do for Jason and myself! If she's not peeing on something, she's pooping on it and you can sure bet that she will spit up on multiple things throughout the day! Oh well, the life of a newborn.

My Great Grandparents!!

It's nice to have family in town. Even Kate's great grandparents live here in Birmingham which is such a blessing.

Little Glow Worm

Kate's jaundice seems to be clearing up. Her count has come down from 19 to 12 and we expect to hear from the doctor today that is has gone down even more. I included a picture of her on her bed so you can see her as a little glow worm. Also, Lucy keeps an eye on Kate at all times, its really sweet.

One Week Old

Lots happened when Kate turned a week old yesterday. We took her to the doctor to find out that her bili ruben count was high, so we now have this bili bed that she has to sleep on as many hours as we can get her too. But we may be purchasing a bili bed because she has never slept so good. Last night she fed and went right back to bed, no fussing, no crying. It was very nice to wake up feeling very rested this morning. As always, here are just some more pictures of Kate during her first week in the world.

Drugs are my friend!

So the bottom line of my story is that when you are uncomfortable and in pain, go to the hospital! Because I was only 38 weeks and I was VERY uncomfortable and in pain but it wasn't what I thought labor pain would be like and it was happening about every 10 or so minutes and they tell you not to come unless you are having pain every 5 minutes. But when I got there I was over 5cm dialated and they tried to calmly tell us that we would be having a baby within hours. But, there are many funny stories from this whole experience that I will have to share with you all but if I must say anything it is that I love modern medicine. After being in so much pain I was completely amazed at how enjoyable the whole experience was just because of the epidural. You feel nothing and are so laid back...I just can't get over how WONDERFUL drugs are!

Kate is doing well. Our first night home was interesting. We told her it was false advertising because in the hospital she barely cried but last night she seemed to make up for it. My mom is staying with us which is nice that between her, Jason and myself...someone is able to get some sleep!

Dr. Damrich delivered her and Erin was our labor nurse and was awesome!
Jason holding Kate for the first time. For never handling a newborn before he has really done an awesome job! He is a great dad.
Except for the fact that he seems to be able to sleep through anything. He was out like a light even in these sleeping circumstances!
On our way home. Her car seat swallows her but she seemed not to mind.
Lucy was very excited to see us. She is funny because she wines to see Kate. When Kate is out of Lucy's sight she wines until we put her down for her to sniff and check on. We still have some adjusting to do though...Lucy got the least amount of sleep of all of us because she was up everytime someone else was up last night. I am sure she will become disinterested soon...but its cute.

Getting Closer

So looking back I thought I was so pregnant at 20 weeks...little did I know what was to come! Here is a picture of me at 37 weeks and some pictures of Kate's nursery which is finally done and waiting for her arrival!
