Happy first anniversary to me and my lover ;)
It has been one crazy rollercoaster of a year since we said our "I do's" and I am looking forward to many more together.

XOXO love you hunky!

The Birth Story

Little West is one week old today! His birthday was AMAZING, I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect delivery. I thought I would share a bit about it… I am very proud of myself :)

At about 1 pm we headed to the hospital so I could get some medication started before the baby came. We sat around in the hospital room for a while… I didn’t have any contractions yet so we were just relaxing, watching TV and waiting. At 5 pm my doctor came and broke my water to get things started and boy did things start! I think it only took about a half hour and contractions were coming and getting closer and stronger every time. I had planned to go drug free but had no idea what I was in for. With my first baby I had an epidural and felt nothing, this time was totally different! Things happened so fast I don’t even think I would have had time to ask for an epidural. I didn’t even have time to pull my hair back—see pictures from my first post about West, I was a mess! My hubby was awesome, he sat by my side the whole time, held my hand and counted me through each contraction (I never want to hear him count to 4 again ha ha!) My doctors and nurses were great as well; they were really laid back and just waited on me. They didn’t even make me put my legs up in those metal things!! Anyway at 7:35 or so I felt that crazy urge to push and less then 10 minutes later I heard Warren say “It’s a boy!” We didn’t even have time to pull out the camera or recorder but I am glad and lucky things went so fast :) After all that craziness we ended up with our perfect little West. The whole pregnancy and birth thing is incredible and I am so blessed to have experienced it twice now!

Here are a few more pictures from the hospital…

I have the cutest new pictures of him too, can't wait to share later. I have to go feed the little dude right now!! Have a good night!

July 14

Wow... I have been so busy... and lazy :)
The baby is due in 11 days!! We are so excited. I think we are ready, I just have a few more things to finish up before he or she comes. I still need to make a hospital hat for it.. something special just for our baby ;)

We went camping the other day. We just got a new four wheeler so we had to take that and test it out! I road on it and tried to shake this kiddo out but I didn't even get a contraction!! My hubby was jumping of cliffs , water skiing and tubing and poor me just sat and got sunburned :( It was kind of nice being prego.. it gave me an excuse to get out of jumping off that cliff--

Check out that belly :) I am praying that this baby is little but now I am getting scared!! I will have to post some more pictures of the baby bump later on. I got a few cute shots the other day that I want to share.
As for the Etsy shop, I am keeping it open for now... I just love making hats for babies!! I promise I will get to the free giveaway soon, probably after the baby is born. I have a few new hats coming out too and I am just waiting for my professional pictures of them before I get them listed. I will definitely be giving one away on this blog ASAP!!
Have a great day everyone!!
