Finally the Weekend!

Today was absolutly perfect! I had to go to the grocery store which isn't always great, but I had so much fun listening to the people just ooooo and ahhhh over my baby boy! I was so afraid he was going to be fussy, need to be fed or changed right in the middle of my shopping, but he was great just looked around and slept the entire time never heard a peep from him! He's gonna be momma's little shopping buddy because Daddy never wants to go

We spent alot of time at Amy and Justin's again watching movies and hanging out! I am really going to miss them when they leave. We were also spending some time with Casey and the girls before they move this weekend :( I got my early Valentines Day present...thanks mom. I love my baby art!

Tonight is suppose to be Daddy's night so I can get some sleep but we'll see how that goes. I have been fighting a sinus infection since before I had Cannin, and I just can't seem to shake it! I hope it goes away soon! Everyone have a great weekend! and enjoy the superbowl!

From our house to yours Have a blessed day!

Almost Friday!

Well....the weather here has been terrible nothing but snow...we have a good foot on the ground more, and I see more falling right now! Dustin has been off work for 2 days now, and I am saying a little prayer he goes Not really it has been great having him here to help during the day it makes it easier on me to nap.

Cannin is getting so big it's amazing! I just can't believe the newborn clothes that were so big are starting to fit him! He is 2 weeks old today and it has gone so fast! I guess they really do grow up fast! I look forward to when he is big enough to do more stuff with, but then again I could keep him a baby forever!

He loves sleeping with Daddy and Uncle Justin while Mommy and Aunt Amy play cards. He has stolen all our hearts!

Michele tell Scarlet don't let that baby out when you are in Ok.....but I'm saying my prayer that she has a fast and healthy delivery!

From our family to yours have a blessed day!

Well it has been awhile..sorry! With a new one my time is deminishing! lol Cannin is 12 days old today and man has it flew by! He had his first dr appt. yesterday and checked out great! He now weighs 7lbs 7oz. and is 20 inches long! He didn't have to get shots so I was happy they didn't hurt my baby!

Grammy left this weekend and Daddy had to go back to work so we are trying to figure out a schedule that works for us.

As for our first day alone it was great i snuggled with him all day, didn't have to share him with anyone. We played and slept, and I actually got a little housework done....Not what I wanted to do but it felt good to get it done also!

Until next time have a blessed day!

Cannin Blake

Goodness...There are so many emotions coming with being a mom! We are proud to say that my baby boy finally made it into the world Jan. 15,2009 at 6:18 a.m. Cannin weighed 7lbs 4oz and was 19.9 inches long.
After about 33 hours of labor I was ready to see my son. It was really intense, and all the hustling around with the staff didn't help. I was exhausted! I was in a great deal of pain and trying to sign consent forms and breath all at the same time...not easy. Cannin had to be suctioned some and has a terrible bruise on the back of his head! This brought on jaundice. Today we had to take him to have another test and he he has to go back again on Tuesday. I wish they would quit poking my baby! We are on our third type of formula hoping he keeps some down. Otherwise he is great! Thank you to all for your thoughts and prayers!
We are a now happy and complete and wouldn't trade any of it for the world!
So from my family to yours Have a blessed day!

Couldn't find the time last night to post so thought I would this morning! Yesterday was great! Finally made my way to the grocery store, and stocked up before all our guests start arriving tomorrow. This made the husband really happy we now have some food! After dealing with all the people my neighbor and I decided to have dinner together and family game night with her husband and boys! These two little boys just make my day I never leave there without a smile on my face, and Ashton asking me when this baby is gonna get here bc he wants to play with him! We have truely been blessed with some great neighbors and I'm sad to see them move eventhough it's only 10 min away, but I am also very happy for them because everything is coming together!

Not much to report on baby...Lots of braxton hicks and NO sleep I have the worst sinus infection and there is nothing I can do for it...this has made for a few sleepless nights already, and he's not even here!

Lots of snow last night too! Hoping it stays clear today and tomorrow to pick up mom and dad in Columbus! Then off to the hospital at 8:00...Hoping they send me home and tell me to come back Wednesday morning! Either way I know that Dustin and I will be meeting our little one in just a few more days!

Have a great day.

3 more days!

So today went really slow as another day passed till I meet my baby boy! Not as much movement because he knows his day is coming. I had my last nst yesterday, and he does not like mommy being hooked up to all those machines! I'm guessing he's gonna be like his daddy and grumpy and not liked to be messed with. YEA! We had our final outting just the 2 of us tonight. It was military appreciation night for the Dayton Bombers Hockey team and everyone got free tickets! Lots of fun and actually kindof sad in it's own way! I look forward to what the future holds but just the two of us have had so many fun adventures I'm kindof sad to see them end! No more spur of the moment trips to wal mart at midnight because neither of us could sleep and just wanted something to do!

So with much to do before Tuesday, but not knowing what to do I guess I will finish

*cleaning as much as I can

* packing and unpacking bag to make sure everything is there

* making sure there is enough of all the little things for our guests

all without being on my feet too much!

Oh and watching the weather making sure mom and dad can make it in....

Just pray he doesn't want to come before Tuesday because tomorrow is a full moon!!!! lol

Until tomorrow. Have a blessed day from our family to yours~

Boy oh Boy

So I heard about this from my mom and thought it would be a good idea since my family and I live so far apart for now, and I can report daily about the baby! Dustin and I are expecting our first baby boy, Cannin Blake, in just a matter of days. No one ever tells you how overwhelming it can become! We have had our ups and downs with this baby, and I just can't wait to hold him in my arms.

I'll start at the beginning....I was getting ready to go to Texas for the summer when I found out I was expecting! We weren't gonna tell anyone till we were both there together and face to face with my family. But it didn't happen that way I cried and cried until I shoved the phone to Dustin and made him tell my mom bc all I could do was still cry! Everyone was thrilled and I couldn't believe after being told I would never have children my prayer had been answered. I guess that's just how God works!

After my trip we went to the dr. and everything was great no problems just really sick all the time. I finished school Oct. 15 and am now a licensed cosmetologist in the state of ohio! Dustin is serving in the Air Force so that's what takes us so far away for the time being...Me I hate it and can't wait to move back!

After making through 3/4's of my pregnancy I was diagnoised with preeclampisa and put on moderate bedrest...KILLING ME. I'm not the type of person to lay around and do nothing, but all in all I get to meet my precious baby boy 3 weeks early! So I'm not gonna complain. I had two amazing showers and got everything we could have asked for...Thank you to all...Grammie has bought and bought until Grumpy's is gonna have to get a second job! lol. Let's say this baby will never do without.

I can't wait for my parents to be here mom just left last week, but shes thrilled to see me again so soon! Dad is not looking forward to the cold but it will be his first time here, and who couldn't be excited about meeting their first grandson! Jarren has to work but I know his time will come to meet his nephew I'm just scared of what he will teach him! lol.

Until next time: Hope everyone has a blessed day!
