3 weeks old

I haven't said anything about how the labor went or the first couple of weeks so here it goes. The labor wasn't bad at all. We got to the hospital on Mon. Jan. 5th at around 8:00pm. I got settled in and then we got started at around 10:30pm. I didn't get any sleep bc the contractions were so intense and were so close together. Brooklyn's heart rate dropped so they had to give me a shot to slow down the contractions and they had to give me oxygen. I got the epidural at around 3:30am and pushed for an hour and a half at 6:00am and had Brooklyn at 7:23am. She was 5 lbs 13 oz and 18 in long. she was tiny tiny, but super cute and a spliting image of Clarke only prettier, my aunt Fresia would say, LOL!
Now she is 6 lbs and 13 oz and 19 in long. Only three weeks old. She is changing so much it's so insane. She can push herself off of me and Clarke and she can hold her head up for a few secs at a time and she is very alert. It is amazing how strong she is. I can't believe it! We love her so much and are so thankful for her. We have been so blessed with such a healthy baby girl.

more pictures

I can't believe that Clarke and I created something so BEAUTIFUL. It is just so amazing. She is the most gorgous little baby ever! I am so proud to be her mom and to be a mom. It is hard work, but it is so much fun. There are many prayers throughout the day. Without the lord's help I don't know how we would be able to function.

5 days old

My very awesome, great friend Kassandra took some pitures of Brooklyn only 5 days old. Here is one of them. She also took the other pictures that I posted last week of the delivery. She did such an awesome job. She is just new at photography. You can find her work and contact her if your interested in getting your pictures taken on the link Kassandra Namba Photography.
Brooklyn is changing so much. Everyday I take a pic of her to compare the changes. I have way to many pictures already. I love her so much. Being a mom is the greatest thing in the whole world and giving birth was the greatest thing I have ever done in my life.

Ready or not

Well, tomoorow night Clarke and I will be heading to the hospital to have our baby girl. I have been waiting patiently for weeks for her arrival and now the time has finally come. It's been a little emotional and frustrating waiting for her to decide when the time is right to come into this world. I guess she is just a little to comfortable in there where it's warm and like zero below out here. It looks like we and the Doc will have to force her out; Unless I go into labor sometime in the 24 hours, which I highly doubt. LOL. We both are so very excited and nervous to bring her home and take care of her forever! We are so blessed to have been given the wonderful opportunity to raise one of Heavenly fathers children. How great a calling. We also really appreciate and are grateful for all the things all of our friends and family have done for us thus far. We are very blessed with great families and friends. Thank you! We love you all! And we will post updates and pictures of our great news when we have some to give. LOL
