My newest trick...

Baby Tag!

I'm beginning to like these tags...they seem to spice up my boring blog-life! Got this one from a friend of mine, so here it goes:

1. Were you married at the time? Yep, for 8 years.

2. What were your reactions when you found out you were pregnant? We were ecstatic and crying! We had been waiting for 2 years to see that second pink line!

3. How old were you? I was 30, Rich was 33

4. How did you find out? At home, by myself, getting ready for a night-shift in the ER. It was Friday, which was my obligatory "pee on a stick day". Every one always tells me that when it is positive, it will be positive right away. Mine wasn't. I threw it in the trash and two hours later, when I was about to leave for work, I just happened to check one more time...

5. Who did you tell first? Rich. But I had to wait about 10 hours until my shift was over. It killed me!

6. Did you want to find out the sex? Of course! I think it is great when people want to wait, but for our first, I wanted to either be Blue or Pink!

7. Due date? Nov 22, 2007 (Thanksgiving day)

8. Did you deliver late or on time? 3 days early

9. Did you have morning sickness? Not at all. I feel like God blessed me in this department, for being so patient in the making :)

10. What did you crave? Chips and Salsa...everyday! My dad's pinto-beans. Ice-cream

11. Who/what irritated you the most? Random people/patients that would touch my belly. And I had a very short fuse with multiple family-members/co-workers. I got irritated pretty easily. Sorry if I bit your head off!

12. What was your first child's sex? a girl :)

13. How many pounds did you gain throughout pregnancy? 26 lbs. I seemed to gain almost all in the first two trimesters, so I was scared to death at what I would look like at delivery!

14. Did you have any complications during pregnancy? OMG, I was soooo swollen after week 20! And towards the end, had to have several NST's because smalls was either not moving, or had a very low heart-rate a few times. Scared me to death!

15. Where did you give birth? Lakeside Womens Hosp

16. How many hours were you in labor? About 4, then the dreaded C-section!

17. Who drove you to the hospital? Rich

18. Who watched? well, Rich saw what he could while sitting "above the curtain"

19. Was it natural or c-section? C-section. This was not planned. Addi started having heart decelerations pretty early on and right about noonish, lost her heartbeat all together during an intense contraction. They had her out twelve minutes later. It is amazing what they can do in emergency situations!

20. Did you take medication to ease the pain? Yes.

21. How much did your child weigh? 6 lbs, 11 oz

22. Did your child have any complications? She was pretty perfect. Her APGAR's were 7 and 9. Although we did realize the next morning that she was a bit "tongue-tied". Her pedi came right in and clipped her without any problems.

23. What did you name her? Addisyn Alyse

24. How old is your first born today? 4 days shy of 14 months!!

Okay, I tag Mandy, Melody, Shelby, Katie

A little late...

So, I have been notified by the Blogging-police that my account is delinquent, and will be shut down if I don't update immediately. We have been super-busy lately! I know that is no excuse! I somehow find time everyday to stalk all of you, but never take the time to update my own. Selfish, I know. So, here are some fun pictures of the last three weeks or so... Our pretty Christmas-dress that we never actually got to wear to church, because were all throwing our toe-nails up!!
Christmas morning with cousin-Payten!!
Grandpa teaching his girls to play the piano.This was adorable. I went in to check on Addi while she was napping yesterday, and all I could see were her little hands. Scared me to death until I heard her snoring :)
Play date with sister-Vivian. Look how tall Viv is!
Cousin-Payten got this fun ball-house for Christmas. Addi had so much fun throwing all the balls out onto the floor.
My favorite girl in the world!!!
