February Surprise

After a stressful few days of dealing with bed rest  due to low amniotic fluid levels the decision was made and we met our beautiful baby girl Friday morning at 7:41 AM after inducing labor Thursday mid morning. Carys Kaylenn weighed in at 6 pounds 7 ounces and was 19 inches long. Since then our days have been filled with learning to breast feed, coping with recovery, and falling head over heals for the tiny little creature that has made us a family. We made it home yesterday so more to come as Mr. A and I figure out our new roles as mommy and daddy.

snowed in=major productivity

So like pretty much the entire state of Oklahoma we've been snowed in for a few days. We put our time to good use...

Mr. A is my hero for putting together all the furniture.

Finished changing table.

I love this pic of all three of my loves Mr. A working hard while Missy and Finnegan try to help.

finished crib with her bedding quilt

Little Miss's very pink closet yes it is the largest one in the house.... no my unborn daughter is not already spoiled..........ok maybe just a little.

The cold weather seems to have hardcore triggered my nesting urge too as I have cleaned out several closets and I don't think our upstairs bathroom has ever been as sparkly clean and spotless as it is right now. We got all the laundry done and I even started washing some of Little Miss's things which was very surreal . Mr. A and I both had a moment where we realized that unless we get more snow the next time we're both home during the day like we have been will probably be when she is born which is...................NEXT MONTH! Umm excuse me where did the last 8 months go? there is no possible way I should be 41 days away from Carys' due date! So I had a minor freak out and then proceeded to clean like a mad woman to make myself feel  better. I'm getting to the point that I'm ready for her but not quite yet baby girl just stay put a little while longer please and thank you! Your Mommy.

Later Alligators...

Mrs. A
