Everytime Lauren sends me a pic, or I see one on IG of baby Camryn, I die. I can't even handle it. How do you not eat her face everyday? Or do you? I know I would :)
Yay! She's here! The first time I saw her (at the IHM festival :), I literally gasped. She is seriously breathtaking. I'm so happy there is another girl in our group of friends otherwise I'm gonna have to have another baby!
I feel like i've been waiting FOREVER for this baby. I remember the day she got the positive on the pregnancy test...I remember screaming...I remember tearing up because I new how badly they wanted a baby.
Lauren is my Ryan's cousin...and really...she looks more like my cousin than she does Ryan's. When I had Calvin, she would come over AT LEAST once a week on her summer break to come see the babies. On those days, I would take a shower, do laundry, clean up...whatever I could fit in the time she was here. And then school started...and I was SAD. Not only did she help me, but I had looked forward to being able to talk to another adult(although I swear she just graduated high school yesterday!). We would talk about wanting to get pregnant...and she longed for babies as beautiful as mine :)
We have a special bond. We are the in-laws of the family. It's just been Jake and I for the past 7 years. Let's drink the finest house chablis on that Jake!
I CANNOT wait to meet this baby! "She" is going to be beautiful and I CANNOT wait to see you guys be parents! If you love this baby half as much as you love my babies, "she" is one lucky baby :)
Work it boo!
I would be lying if I said I fell in love her when I first laid eyes on her. Because I have loved her for the last 30 weeks.
Baby Camryn has the two most amazing parents and a big brother that will protect her, and love her forever.
Be prepared to melt peeps
Welcome to the world Baby Camryn
Congratulations to the most perfect family I know
Originally from New York, (Let's go BILLS! ;) he moved here for his job....and she followed. And now they are engaged and just recently purchased their first home!
He had this adorable ornament made, and in front of her parents, he proposed over the holidays....Pa-recious!
Congratulations to the two of you! I can't wait to see your wedding pics!
Holy crap.....how horrible does this mama feel right now? Beyond horrible. Landon and Calvin's birthday's are less than one month apart. But it felt like one day to the next. So how could I write about one baby but forget about the other?
Well one thing I will never forget is how Landon came to be. He was dramatic from the very beginning. From before he was even born. We thought we miscarried him. We thought he was gone. And after trying for him for years and years...we were devastated. After the ER doc told us he was gone, we went to the OB the next morning and during the ultrasound, the OB says "well....there's the heartbeat." We couldn't believe it. We cried...and cried. And cried some more.
Then I started having contractions. At 28 weeks. And my friend Sara told me not to google it. But I did. duh. That was stupid. They put me on some meds to stop the contractions. And at one point I had to go to the hospital and they put me on magnesium. At 36 weeks.
At 37 weeks, I went into full blown labor. And all along, I wanted to have a VBAC. And luckily, I had an awesome OB that made it happen. It was successful but for some reason, my blood pressure dropped super low and I almost passed out. Weirdest feeling ever.
Oh and did I mention he was born with a club foot? And how he fell off the counter(don't ask...) Drama Drama Drama
Ryan always says, "In a room full of toys and one razor blade, Landon would find the razor blade to play with". It's so true.
After all....he is the MIDDLE CHILD
But despite all of the drama, I can say that Landon and I have a special bond that I can't explain. He makes me laugh...he makes me cry. We get mad at each other and we laugh together. We have been through an awful lot together, that Landon and I.
Landon and I spent the day together...all by ourselves.
He calls them "ELLAS"
Could you even imagine? THREE Landon's?
OH EM GEE
It's ok to call him Baby Calvin for the rest of my life right? Good ...cuz it's gonna happen. I'm dying inside thinking about him turning one in a few months..about him becoming more and more independent each day...about him not being a baby anymore
We are experiencing some severe cabin fever in my house and how lucky are we that we got to play outside today! I put the babies in the wagon...went for a walk...came home and played outside. I think Landon was seriously becoming delirious being cooped up in the house!
I'm a mom and a wife who loves to play with a camera...how can life be any better?
