4 weeks!

Ellie is 4 weeks old!! She has to go in tomorrow for an ultrasound of her hip since they are still loose. She may have to wear a brace for a few months if it doesnt look good. Poor baby!! She still loves to be swaddled, loves to swing, and most of all loves to be held and eat!! She is starting to make some noises and has smiled a few times! She is changing so fast! And still hasnt lost any of her hair!! We love you Ellie Mae!! :)

Ellie is 3 weeks already!!

I cant believe my baby is 3 weeks old!!! (tomorrow) The time is just going by so fast, it makes me sad! But I am also excited to watch her grow and learn to do things! She loves to stare at my face and if I get her attention she will actually follow me when I move out of her sight. She is really trying hard to hold her head up too. Im enjoying every second with her, which is probably a bad thing because she is getting used to being held almost all day!!

Kensi and Brinley's Tumbling Performance

So last night was the girls' tumbling performance, Brinley's first. They were so cute and did so good! They were both a little nervous, Brinley wouldnt stop biting her nails! But their routines were so fun! They both love going so much and I cant wait to see what they can do next year!

2 Weeks already!!

So Ellie is 2 weeks old today! I cant believe it! Time just goes by so fast! She has changed so much in this short amount of time! She is now 7lbs 7oz! She got down to 6lbs 8oz. Her umbilical cord also fell off today so she got her first tub bath. She does NOT like it! She likes to be nice and warm and swaddled! She also loves her binky and to eat! She is starting to be awake alot more during the day, and she is still sleeping great at night! We all just love her so much and are so happy she is finally here!

Ellie's Story! :)

So our morning began at 4:45 (for me anyway) Brad and I decided to go to the movies the night before at 9:25, we came home and I did some last minute cleaning, so I didnt end up in bed till 1 AM. So here I am on not even 4 hours of sleep, DYING!! I got ready so fast that I had to sit there and wait for 45 min before I could call the hospital. They told me to call at 7AM, but I called at 650, they told me the charge nurse was in report and that she would call me back when she was done, so 715 comes and I still havent heard, so call. They told me to call back at 8AM, this was sounding ALL too familiar!! I got bumped with both the other girls, so just knew I probably wouldnt be able to go in till that afternoon. So Brad says, lets go and we can go shopping or something to keep us busy. So I call at 8, from the WalMart down the street from Alta View, and they said come at 9! So I was checking the time every 30 seconds, getting so nervous!! I dont think I have ever been that nervous before. So we get there at 9, the HUC was irritated because she was told we were coming at 930. So we had to sit in the waiting room for 15 min while she put our chart together. We get to the room, I get to change into my lovely hospital attire, and off we go! I couldnt believe the time had finally come!! Things actually took a while to get started because our nurse got 2 inductions at the same time. So we sat there doing paper work for quite some time. I didnt get my IV till about 10, then she said she was going to start the PIT at 1030 as low as it would go until I could get the epidural. I normally would not have gotten it BEFORE anything was started, BUT, the anesthesiologist was about to go to a C-Section and would be gone a while. And since I have my kids so fast, I thought it would be a bad idea to wait! So I got that around 1120 or so, and had only had 2 or 3 small contractions. So I say my labor started at 11 since thats when I felt the first pain. She called down my FABULOUS Dr. Layne Smith. He broke my water at 1145. And I was almost 3 and 70% (when I got there I was 2 and 70%) She checked me at approx 1PM, I was 4 and 80%. I was so comfortable the whole time and we just hung out. Then she checked me approx 2-2:15, I was 7 and 90%. Then she checked again at 3 on the dot. I was COMPLETE!! She hurried and called my Dr, took down the bed, he came in, got all dressed up, and after just 1 contraction (3 small pushes) Ellie was here!!(all of that happened in 13 short minutes!!) She was born at 3:13PM, weighing 7lbs 2oz, 19.5 inches. She was so cute and had SO much BLACK hair!! I couldnt stop laughing! She was so tiny and I just loved the sound of her cry! I got all cleaned up, then they came and put her under my gown, it was so sweet! My mom, gramma and sister were right outside the door so got to hear everything. I decided to feed her and Brad wanted her for a few minutes before we let anyone in. The whole experience was fabulous and I would do it all again in a heartbeat!! I LOVE so much having her here, but at the same time I am missing being pregnant!! It always feels so weird to me at first not feeling anyone moving in there!! So that is her story, she will be a week old tomorrow!! :( Time FLIES once they are here!! She is such a good baby and is sleeping 5 hours straight at night (knock on wood!!) We all just love her so much and cant get enough of her!!
