2 whole weeks!!

I dont know how I managed to get this picture,
but I'm So glad I did!
How cute is that??

Pretty in purple!

I think there is nothing more
precious than a baby sleeping.

Jake loves to hold her any chance he gets.
Especially IF she will lay her head on his shoulder.

Well! I can't believe its already been almost one whole month since we were blessed with our sweet baby Leah. She is such a joy to have around. She eats great and sleeps better than I thought she would. . . sometimes! The boys just can't get enough of her. They are always wanting to hold her and are always willing to help me out with whatever I need. If she is around them, they are telling her how pretty she is and how much they love her. They are awesome big brothers! She is constantly making new noises and faces that make all of us laugh. I took Leah to the Dr. for her 2 week check and she is doing perfectly! Gaining weight, (notice the chubby cheeks?) moving around, and getting stronger (and in my opinion, even cuter) every day. It's so much fun to have her in our family!!
We love our Baby Leah!

Just waiting to get things started!

Just waiting to progress more!

The epidural was making me feel "loopy"!

But, Oh so good!

It's me!

Hello everybody!!

So peaceful looking.

My baby girl is finally in my arms.

I'm so glad that my mom was here for this.

Jake is totally in love.

Big brother Kolby loves her when she's not stinky!

Grandchild number 10!

I could look at her all day!

The boyz are so proud!

She's just so sweet!


Getting ready to go home. What an experience!

My heart is so full! My sweet baby girl arrived on Sunday, February 7th, at 11:32 am. The morning was full of nervousness and excitement. I have done this whole "birth" thing twice before so you'd think wouldn't be scared at all. But, I just couldn't believe that it was already time for this! (Not that I wanted to keep her inside any longer!) When we got to the hospital, after I got all hooked up to the monitors, my Dr. came and broke my water to get things started, and off we went. My mom was here from Arizona and my friend Amy were there to share this experience too. So we just hung out and chatted for what I felt like was forever! I was disappointed that it seemed to be taking so long when in actuality, from start to finish, it only took about 3 hours! Dr. Willis had just called to check on me and said he was going to church and to page him when things picked up. Well, about 20 minutes later, I felt things "pick up" FAST! I was at about 6 centimeters and then all the sudden I was almost at a 9 and wanted to push. So, they called my Dr. back and he rushed over in his suit and tie, and said, "Let's have a baby!" So, about 20 minutes later, we did! She is just so beautiful and fun and I can't imagine our lives without her. The boyz absolutely are in love with her and want to hold her all the time. Well, until she cries or smells stinky, which is a lot! I am having so much fun putting bows on her sweet little head and putting pretty pink socks on her. I wish I could put all the pictures up here but I will just put some of my favorites. (I put more up on my facebook page if you are interested though.) I can hardly believe we now have a 3rd child and its our little baby girl! Our family feels complete and THAT feels amazing!

Baby Leah's room!

So this has been a LONG time coming I know, but! Here is our precious baby Leah's bedroom. It has PINK in it and everything! We still have a few pieces to put up on the walls and things like that, but, so far, I think its turning out great! It's just so much fun to see girly stuff in our house. I was doing some laundry today and was washing some of her new clothes and it was so weird to see little tiny pink things in my machine. We couldn't be more excited to have our little baby girl join our family!!!

Eventually we will have lots of cute stuff on these shelves. But for right now,
less is more! ( notice the cute hair stuff next to the big, pink diamond?)
Did I just say "hair stuff????

This dresser has been through both of the boys, so we just changed the knobs
to be a little more "girlie"!

I don't think I could have found a more perfect light fixture for her room.
It's just so sweet!

Got my glider in the corner, and my CD player cued up with primary music.
I am ready to pull some "all nighters"!

It is so fun to walk in her room and see pink on the walls! It's even more fun to see a crib in there! We are so ready to see our daughter sleeping away in it. . . We hope!
