7 weeks old!

Sofie's 6 weeks stats were: 8 lbs 12oz (Pretty good considering she came home from the hospital at 5 lbs 7oz) It is so fun to have another little one in the house again. She is always smiling and is starting to make sounds back when you talk to her. She is too cute!

Blessing Day

Ryan blessed Sofie Anne September 7th and he did such a wonderful job! We had many family members join us and it was so good to visit with them all. Thank you everyone for coming! Here are some pictures!
I took these pictures a few days before her blessing. (I am not the best photographer but they turned out cute)

These are pictures from her blessing day.

Silly Emma

While in Idaho for Labor Day weekend, it poured! Luke and Emma had a fun time playing in the rain!

Pictures, Pictures, Pictures!

Our good friends Tom and Julie Cutts and their little girl Eden ( I love that name) came to visit us when Sofie was 2 weeks old. They live in Minnesota and we don't get to see them that often so it was fun to reminisce and visit.

What a cutie!

I'm Back!

Whew! It has been a crazy few weeks but things are finally starting to slow down. Let me start by saying we are so grateful to have Sofie. She is such a good baby and so cute! We all love her so much and it is so fun having two kids. My labor with her was so much different than with Emma. I actually enjoyed labor! I was super nervous going in to be induced but after all was said and done, I would do it again in a heartbeat. They started me on pitocin around 4pm and contractions were regular around 4:45pm so I decided to get the epidural before the nurses shift change at 5pm. I was extremely nervous for the epidural after the one during Emma's labor (the tubes came unhooked and all the medicine went into the bed, them 2 seperate machines broke, leaving me with very painful labor) I had a little bit of a panic attack during the epidural but got over it quick when Sofie's heart rate started to drop during the contractions. I became very nauseated so they checked me and I was dilated to a 5. I switched to laying on my left side and then her heart rate picked up. After about 45 minutes I became nauseated again so the nurse checked me and I was at a 10 and Sofie's head was halfway down the birth canal. My doctor came and 2 pushes later she was born at 9:51 pm! The umbilical cord was wrapped around her neck which is why her heart rate would drop during the contractions (that was very scary). I instantly felt tons better than I did after Emma and have felt really good ever since! She is such a sweet baby and my most favorite thing about her is the little patch of brown curly hair on top of her head! Okay enough writing, here are some pictures!

Emma gets a little bored because mommy spends a lot of time feeding Sofie. She decided to stack all of the yogurts in the fridge. Funny girl!
