Mommy and baby...

Ben is such a good dad! We still can't believe that after all these years, we finally have our girl!

Now the story...

I was scheduled to be induced on Wednesday, April 8 at 10:30am. They weren't sure if they would really induce me so they checked me and got the doctors go ahead. They started potocin at 12:00. Nothing was happening, so they doctor said the nurses could start me on some gel. Before they took me off the potocin, the nurse decided to check me and my water broke! Yea! That was at 6:00 pm. My water never breaks on it's own and once it is broken, I go really fast. At this time, I was about at 4 cm and then the contractions started fast and hard. They went from nothing to 2 minutes apart! I told Ben that this is going to be fast. So he called my mom and his sister, Heather, who is a doula. It's a good thing they came fast because she was born at 7:17pm. Only 1 1/2 hours of labor! What a blessing! She is so perfect and beautiful!
I've never been induced before and I was really nervous about it. People always say you can't do it naturally because the contractions are too strong. But I just felt like everything was going to be OK. (Even if I did cry on the way to the hospital. Poor Ben!) Ben's Spring Break was that week and we really wanted to have her during the break so he could be there and help out when I got home. Anyway, the labor and delivery was great! The nurses and doctors were great! Everybody was fantastic! I really believe that it was a blessing that I got induced when I did because the whole time I was pregnant, the head wouldn't drop and come to find out, the cord was wrapped around her neck and had to be cut immediately before she was born all the way! Everything has worked out perfectly! I feel so blessed and feel that Heavenly Father was really watching out for our little family!
Thanks to everyone who helped! We really appreciate it!

Doctor Carson

Every once in a while Carson will dress up really nice and walk around the house with his stethoscope (it's Ben's old one from years ago). He really wants to be a doctor when he grows up and I think that he'll make a mighty good one!

Cookies and Lots of Fun!

Here are just some random pictures...
Devin loves to climb the fences at my parent's house.
Calvin loves exploring and collecting things. This boy has a collection for just about everything!
Here are some of the cookies we made and took over to my parent's house. Devin loved to hold them and especially loved to sneak an M&M or two every once in a while.

The New and Improved Carseat

Here is my most recent project...
I made a new car seat cover for our little girl. And here is the finished result.
I took the old cover and cut the new material and sewed it together based on what the old one looked like. I did have to make some modifications because I wanted the canopy to be lined. That was a little more difficult. But after a lot of thinking and praying and visualizing, it all came together!
I think it's appropriate for a girl, don't you?
