The Birth of Katelyn Marie {9.5.2012}


After being in the hospital for 2 days for gestational hypertension (a step away from pre eclampsia), one of the Doctors at the practice announced that we would be having our baby girl. After some consideration, it was decided to allow me to attempt natural childbirth. After 3 unsuccessful hours, I was given an epidural and rushed in to get ready for a C-section. I was none too thrilled about either but it is what it is. So before I was all loopy from the drugs, I instructed my husband to manhandle my camera. I have to say that I was pretty impressed with a good handful of shots that he got. I actually feel the emotion by looking at them – which is something that is really hard for me to do with my own photography.

Katelyn was born with white pasty stuff all over her. She hardly had any blood on her what so ever. However, the black and white does make the photos look a little more tasteful.

My hubs even managed to get the nurse to get a couple of him cutting her cord and together.

But this is it in a nutshell. The pictures pretty much sum it up 😉

Oh My Stars! Jeffrey’s 5!

For my little boy who doesn’t speak a word, but yet says so much. You have been the challenge that has tested my patience, but for all the good – amazing reasons. The most loving little boy with the biggest heart, I couldn’t imagine my life without you. I Love you so very very much.

Happy 5th Birthday!

I can’t believe how time has just passed us by…

Pregnancy: {Week 33}

Well, today marks my 33rd week (if you want to get technical, my docs are off by a week) So far – my pregnancy has gone alright, other than some minor hiccups.. We also finally have a name for our little girl! We chose 3 names and had Jeff choose… Katelyn Marie (Spelling is tentative right now) was his selection…

Sorry I’ve been MIA. I haven’t had too much oomph to post anything….
