Oh goodness, I don't know where to start. I guess I will rewind the past 3 weeks. They have been the most amazing, wonderful, beautiful, tiring and stressful weeks of our life. I am trying to take in every single second with Kate. We can't get enough of her. She is the most perfect and precious gift we have ever received. Words really can't even describe how amazing it is being her mom. Life as we knew it before with just the two of us seems like it was so long ago. It seems as if Kate has been in our life forever. We can't imagine life without her now. The minute she was born all of my wants and needs disappeared. I am in full on momma mode, all I want is for her to be happy and healthy. Chris and I are so amazed at how much we love this little girl. We hardly know her yet we would lay down our life for her. Never have I been so in love. I have fallen in love all over again with my husband. Seeing him with our precious Kate is the most beautiful sight in the world. He

Kate's birth-day story

I don't even know how to start this blog but here it goes. It started on Tuesday with having lots of pressure and pain in my tummy. I stuck it out all day to get my last minute errands done and by 10pm I couldn't take the pain anymore so I called my doctor. He suggested that I take tylenol and unisom to help the pain and to get one last good night sleep. That is what I did and I am so glad I took his advice! It was 4am before we knew it and we were on our way to the hospital. It was a really weird feeling leaving the house as just the two of us and knowing there would be one more person when we returned. We were admitted and checked into the labor and delivery room by 6am. I was hooked up to pitocin at 6:30am and really had no clue what to expect. Chris and I had a nice quiet time until 7:30am when my doctor walked in singing and said "ok, its time to break your water." I looked at Chris with a panicked look on my face and could see the panic in his. Break my water al

Lord, we are amazed...

This is how my day started.... waking up at 6am next to my husband of two years to the song "Amazed"'s my favorite song and every time I hear it my eyes well up with tears. Today was no different. In fact the tears streamed down my face as I laid in bed listening to the words,"Lord, I'm amazed by you..." I can't even believe how full my life is and how much more complete it will be tomorrow. Chris and I talked about these past two years and I was literally at a loss for words. I honestly don't deserve all of this. The Lord has been so gracious. I have been a bit overwhelmed today as the birth of our daughter is literally hours away. I have been doing my best to cherish every second I have left of her in my tummy. It has been a great 9 months and to be honest, I am going to miss being pregnant. There is nothing better than feeling her kick, squirm and hiccup from within. I have loved carrying her everywhere with me. I know it will be 100x better

.2 years.

Hard to believe it's been two years since Chris and I said "I do"'s been an amazing two years to say the least. I thank the good Lord everyday for blessing my life with such an incredible Goldy man. Love you baby! I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you....
What a day! And..what a difference from last monday. I woke up at 4am (due to lovely pregnancy insomnia) and finally got up at 6am with Chris and had some breakfast. I was so excited about my doctors appointment and had a peace about it all morning. I did my best to be as productive as possible to pass the time. I washed the sheets, washed the dishes and organized a few things around the house. Got to the doctors office a few minutes early (such a better experience this week!). My prayer this morning was to have a good attitude and to be open to whatever my Dr. suggested. We really trust him. Not just because he is the world's best doctor but because he is a believer. He loves the Lord so much and it is so evident. Kate and I are in such great hands. So there I was....waiting in the room to be seen and staring across the street at St. Josephs Hospital. I sat there and wondered what day we would be there and tried to picture what it will be like meeting our daughter for the first t

I'm a bit talkative tonight..

Ohhh it's been a good weekend! I'm so thankful. It started out with an exciting yet frustrating Friday night. Chris worked late at the firm so I went out to dinner with mom and dad. I started having contractions at 5:30pm and was so annoyed by them because I had been up all night trying to time them that by the time I had them again I was over timing them. We finally started timing them at dinner and noticed that they were 5 minutes apart... Finally 2 hours later I called Chris and told him that he might want to head home because I was having time-able contractions...this went on for 3 more hours. My mom and I walked around the block a few times and they got stronger. I did not let myself get excited because I didn't want to be let down. My mom on the other hand was hilarious. I finally called my doctor at 10pm to see what I should do. I explained to him what was going on and he said that it sounds like the start of "early labor" and to try to get some sleep. That
