Kayla - 4 Months OLD!!!

December 21, 2009


I know! I know! It's been forever...truth is I am neglecting my blog because I know have a Facebook account. With FB I can upload pics from my phone, much easier considering I have Kayla now.

But let see, Kayla is doing amazing!!! She almost holds her up up 100%! She recognizes almost everyone now. She speaks and smiles all the time. She is sleeping about 7-8 hour at a time at night...much better from every 2! She fights her sleep like crazy during the day though.

At her 2 month checkup (12/7) she weighed 12.4 lbs and was 23". Basically she gained 3 lbs and inches! Doctor says she is doing great!

We are so in love with this girl it is crazy!! She is our world! Enjoy the pictures!! Can't wait to celebrate Christmas with our families!

2 and a half months old!!

Here are some pictures of our little angel! She is growing up so fast! She coos and smiles! Check her out in action (make sure you turn up your volume)!

Happy Retirement Dad!!!

Well, after 30 amazing and fulfilling years of police work, Dave is finally retired! We are so unbelievably proud of him and all that he has accomplished. He is truly one of a kind. He has helped so many people that he has taken on the slogan "Dave Crespin saved my life". Congrats!!! (now, we have a full time baby sitter!) LOL!

Here are some pictures from the BBQ where he was presented his flag!

3 Weeks Old!

Well, it's been three weeks! Three weeks of love, happiness, surprises, sleep deprivation, frustration and many other feelings! But I can say that all of the negatives don't even compare to the love that I feel for this little girl. She and Ryan are the joys of my life.

Getting big at 9lb, 7 oz too! She is giving me some major biceps! She smiles and follows your face and she is starting to make cooing sounds...the cutest thing ever. She eats A LOT! I just wish she would sleep a little bit longer intervals at night. We would sure love that.

Uh oh, she is crying...will continue later!

Our Birth Photos! Enjoy!!


So, my next check which was around 1:40, I was a 7 almost 8. Then I started to feel some major pressure so I called the nurse...boom! I was 9 at 2:30. At 2:55, I was 10 and we began pushing. Again, thank god for that epi!!!

My mom and Ry were in the delivery room with me and they were awesome. My husband was the greatest support telling me to keep pushing and how great I was doing. Always giving me kisses on the head. My mom was totally awesome too!! I could not have asked for a better team!!

Dr came in around 3:15 because I was getting super close. She started to have some decelerations with the contractions, so he decided to use the vacuum to help her out. He pulled her out just a little and I was able to push her the out the remaining way. SHE WEIGHS 9 POUNDS 1.8 OUNCES! Yes, that huge baby came out of me!! We all were stunned by her size!

We were all crying and just smiling with joy and excitement to see this little miracle born. I honestly had a great birth for a first time mom. I only pushed for 40 minutes. Overall, from the moment we got to the hospital and got hooked up with 3 minute contractions until delivery, it was 20 hours!

This pic is of daddy cutting the cord!

This is of me crying right after she was delivered

Here are Kayla Jade's birth stats!

Induction Update 1:30pm

Hello again! Well, I am finally opening!! I was at 6 cm at 12:45! Yea!!! We are going to have this little girl soon!!

Oh, and I am still feeling great! Loving this epi! We are trying to get in our final naps before the big moment of arrival! Ryan looks so cute all curled up on his lil cot, sleeping like a baby.

We are getting so excited! We cannot wait! I can't believe that I am going to be a mom and hold the miracle that Ryan and I created so soon. I mean I protected and kept her healthy for 9 months and now I get to see her! Just amazing!

Nurse said it should be about 2 more hours! YAY! Oh, and for all you moms who did it naturally, I have a whole other level of respect for you! I give you big props!! I couldn't of done it!

Next update will be photos of Kayla!!
