2 week old princess!

Kate is 2 weeks old today! She's starting to smile when you talk to her. Haley and Blake love her so much! I've been putting her in her swing some and she really seems to like it. She's still sleeping between me and Chris in the co-sleeper, and Blake is doing a good job staying in his bed. I'm so proud of him! Last night she slept 6 hours in a row-from 12-6. I couldn't believe it when I woke up. We stayed up til 7 then went back to sleep til 930. It was so nice! She's going to have me spoiled! Last night we went to Nana and Poppy's and had hamburgers. I haven't been out of the house much(just the pediatrician's office) so it was nice to get out. Even going to Target sounds exciting to me. I just don't think I'm ready to leave her yet. :)
Blake was so funny the other day. He was singing Rain rain go away and just like his daddy he was singing his own lyrics! "Rain, rain go away, come again some mother day" haha. Then when we told him it was "some other day" he sang "rain, rain go away, come again some father day" He is Chris made over! He was supposed to have his first t-ball practice tonight but it got rained out. They are going to meet next Friday instead. Below I put a picture of Kate and Blake's hospital pictures to compare. I think her lips are bigger than his!

She was wiggling for these pictures!

Good day for a walk

Baby Kate went on her first walk today. Daddy, Mommy, and brother took her walking around the block. She slept the whole time! Here are some recent pictures.

Welcome Katelynn Michelle Huffman!

As most of you probably know Kate was born Friday afternoon, February 13th at 4:55pm. She weighed 7lbs9oz and was 19in long. She has lots of beautiful black hair and blue eyes. She looks just like her daddy and little brother. I went into the hospital at 11pm the night before and got a couple of doses of Cytotec through the night. I couldn't sleep at all! Dr. Thibault came in Friday morning and started my epidural and broke my water. Unfortunately the epidural only worked on the right side of my body(that was after 2 sticks to try and get it). I had some Stadol to help with the pain. They started Pitocin on me and my contractions were very strong. It took me most of the day to dilate, but once I got to 7 it didn't take long! Right before I started pushing Dr. T redosed my epidural and my blood pressure dropped to 68! I felt aweful and was hurting so bad, but it was all worth it!!! Kate did wonderful and is very healthy. She is so sweet. She stayed in the room with us most of the time unless they needed to take her to the nursery. She still has her days and nights mixed up, but she's getting better. She had her first doctors appointment today and he said she was perfect! She weighs 7lbs5oz. Here are some pictures...

I'm going in tomorrow night at 11pm to start Cytotec so hopefully I will be good and ready to go on Friday. Everyone pray for me. I'm very nervous that I won't progress. My biggest fear is a C-section! Hopefully we'll be bringing home a healthy baby girl on Valentine's Day!

ANOTHER Dr appointment!

I'll be 38 weeks tomorrow and I had my weekly checkup today. I'm really getting sick of weekly checkups! Good news-I haven't gained any weight since December. Bad news-I'm still not changing any! Her heartrate was 147 and she is still head down(good news too). He said he would look at inducing at the end of next week if I wanted. He told me he thought she weighed about 8 pounds, which I'm not surprised because my other 2 were so big! I really think if she stays the whole time she'll be 9 pounds. I was a little better prepared for the bad news this week. Last week I was certain I was making process so I was very upset to learn I wasn't. This time I told myself to be ready to hear the same thing. So I didn't even cry this time! haha. I'm very ready to have her but yesterday was my last day of work, just knowing I don't have to work anymore makes me feel 10 times better. We have been so busy in the ER lately that it's hard for me to pull my load! I have wonderful co-workers who help me out so much and cover my shifts when needed. Thanks guys! So I go back to Dr T next Tuesday and I hope to hear better news!
