Some things I love...

I love after Addison gets her bath. She smells so clean and her skin is so soft. I could just kiss her forever!!

I love the little face she makes when she makes an o with her lips.. so cute!

I love watching her sleep even though I should be catching up on my sleep as well!

I love her little grunts when I move her around too much.

I'm sure I could go on forever, but I am so grateful that I have been given the opportunity to raise such a beautiful little girl! I am so lucky that she is healthy and she is a great baby!!

Life as a new mom..

Well things are going pretty well. We are sleep deprived but loving every minute with our baby girl. She is still a little out of whack with her sleeping so we are trying to get her on a better schedule. My mom came and helped out last weekend which was a BIG relief. Addison continues to get bigger every day. She went to the dr. this week and she gained almost all her weight back and weighed 8 lbs 12 oz.

Addison Ann

Well she made it!! Addison Ann Nelson was born February 8th 2009 at 6:05 am via C-section. 8 lbs 13 oz and 20 inches long.. BIG baby!! I awoke early Sunday morning to my water breaking and when I went to the bathroom it was greenish/brown. I called the hosptial and they said to come in to be checked. She had her first stool in the womb hence the discoloration. When we got there the nurse checked me and said something didn't feel quite right. Whatever it was she was feeling was squishy, not like a head should be. I was already dialated to a 3/4. After another nurse checked me they had the Dr come in to do an ultrasound which confirmed our baby girl was breach. Last time the dr. checked me she was not so she must have turned sometime in the last few weeks?!? The Dr. informed Matt and I that I would need to have a c-section. Needless to say we were both very nervous. Everything turned out fine though and I could not believe it when they told me she was 8 lbs 13 oz. How was she fitting in my stomach? After being in the hospital for 4 days we arrived home yesterday. Everything seems to be going ok. Didn't get much sleep last night. Miss Addison thinks its time to play at night. Hopefully we can get on a better routine soon! Thank you everyone for your kind words and thoughts. We love her so much and are looking forward to everything to come!!

39 weeks and counting...

I made it through a terrible sinus infection and am finally feeling better after 7 days. Tomorrow is my weekly appointment with the OB and I am very anxious to see what he has to say. I included a picture of me taken today and 2 pictures of the nursery. Matt pretty much did it all and he did a great job. He painted the walls pink and the ceiling blue with clouds, and then put butterflies all over. Very cute!!
