Past few weeks

Well here we are again, back to life with a newborn. June is such a blessing to have in our home. She has the sweetest disposition and is being so good for her mamma. I am hoping that this trend will continue! She is growing like a little weed, which is wonderful. When she was born she weighed 8 lbs 3 oz and then went down to 7 lbs 11 oz a few days later. I took her in to get weighed less than a week later and she was a whooping 9 lbs. Its pretty safe to say that she is eating just fine. She is sleeping just like a dream also (knock on wood). I am hoping that this remains a trend. Avery has really adjusted well to having a little sis around the house. Not that I was really worried that she would go crazy or anything, I just did not want her to feel like I had abandoned her. But she has been doing great. The first week or so she did not really want anything to do with June, but as the days go by she is getting better and better at paying attention to her sis and talking to her. The other day June was getting fussy and crying and Avery came to me and said,"Mamma, June is hungry she eat a boobie." She cracks me up. We have been wanting to get Avery a trampoline for a while now and we finally found one that was cheap enough. It has been wonderful to have for such an active child, plus it keeps her occupied while momma is feeding sis. We just had to catch a couple of videos of her doing her thing.

So, since the pain on labor was just not enough for me, I decided to get my wisdom teeth out a week after I had June. Kidding, the pain was plenty, but apparently I must have pushed so hard that I pushed my wisdom teeth out as well. The day that I had June my wisdom teeth came through and it was hurting pretty bad. I could not even open my mouth all the way because there was no room for them to come in and they were pushing on my jaw. Anyways, I went to the dentist and he said that they needed to come out and that he had an appointment the next day or after Christmas. So, there I was the next day. I tell you what though, I was more scared to get these dumb teeth out than I was to be induced. I only had upper wisdom teeth so it only took he like 5 mins to get teeth out, but man it sucked. Here is a picture of my teeth.... I know you all want to see them! Daddy has been such a wonderful help and I am so blessed to have such a wonderful husband. It has been such a good thing having another baby in the house because it has really helped Avery bond more to her daddy. Before the baby came Avery was all about mamma, not that it has really changed, but she takes to daddy so much better now that they have been spending more time together. We are so lucky to have such a good daddy!

The Story

We are so excited to have our little June bug here with us. And let me just say that her enterence was a lot less tramatic than her sisters. I had been seeing the doctor every week for the month of October. The monday before Halloween I had an appointment and found out that I was already dilated to a 4, which was a shocker considering at this point with Averys delivery I was asking for my epidural. Anyways, my doctor said that if I did not have the baby by Halloween that I should come back and schedule an induction. Halloween passed and still no baby so I had an induction scheduled for Nov 3. We got to the hospital at 6:30 am and got checked in. By 7:30 the doctor had given me medication to soften and thin out my cervix. He said to see how that goes and since I was already a 4, he did not think that I would need pitocin. Well he was right. About 9:30 my contractions were pretty close together and pretty strong, so I started to walk around to get thing moving and after about 5 mins of that my water broke. They checked me again and I went from a 6to ready to push in 10 minutes. 15 minutes later at 10:17 am our little girl was here. She was so beautiful and so big! She weighed 8 lbs 3 oz and was 20 1/2 inc long. We are so happy and so blessed. Thank you everyone for your prayers!
I will post more pictures soon!
