My MoM

I just wanted to write a little bit about my mom. She is the most amazing woman I have ever known. She is so selfless and would do anything for any of us. I am more than grateful for her and words cannot explain how much she means to me. I don't know where I would be without her. She has taught me so much. I will always look up to her and strive to be the mom she was to me to my kids.. She is and always has been such a hard worker. She is honest and will tell you the truth no matter what which is very admirable. She has been through a lot and I am so proud to call her my mom. She is the BEST grandma in the whole world. You can just tell she truly loves and cares about her grandchildren more than anything. I love her so much. She is the one person I know I can go to and talk to about anything and everything. Thank you mom for everything you have ever done for me and my little family :) You are my best friend and I love you..


JaGGer Krew is HERE!!!!!

Our baby finally came today, November 20th 2009 at 5:33 PM!! He weighed 8 pounds 13 ounces big big chunk :) and is 20 inches long. We are so in love with him. He looks like Kennedy so much! He has my eyes and nose and Ryan's lips..

We were supposed to come into the hospital on Thursday night but I was already dialated and effaced enough that my doctor just suggested we come in Friday at 7:00 am. I was so bummed but I knew that he would be here soon enough :) Friday morning we got a call at 5:40 from a nurse saying we had to bump us out a couple hours. I was SOOO bummed!! Finally the nurse called us back at 11:30 am asking us if we wanted to come to the hospital to have our baby :) OF COURSE we were so ready! We got our stuff and off we were to the hospital! We were checked in and situated in our room by 12:30. My doctor came in at 1:00 and broke my water. I started contracting right away. The nurse checked me and I was still dialated to a 4. I got my epidural at 3:15, which seriously saved my life. I don't know how people do it without any help!! She then started me on pitocin at 4:15, and came back and checked me again around 4:45 and I was still at a 4. She said she would check in another 30 minutes or so and was back at 5:15. She was in SHOCK because I was fully dialated and effaced and Jagger was so low. She got my doctor, they set the room up and I pushed 2 times and our baby was here. It was the easiest and fastest labor ever.

We are so in LOVE with this little man. I can't wait for his big sister to meet him. I am so sad because visitor policy doesn't allow anyone under 14 even if they are a sibling. She will just have to wait until Sunday....

Well there's the labor quickly I want to go back to staring at my baby. It's amazing to me how fast you can fall in love with someone you just met. Ahhhhhhh we love you Jagger Krew!!

We have a million pictures, we'll post them all soon... xoxo {C}hels, {R}yan, and BIG SISTER {K}ennedy


BabY ShoweR and 37 WeeKs!!

Saturday the 24th of October my mom, Ryan's mom and Ryan's Step-Mom threw me a shower! It was so much fun and we got a lot of really great presents :) We are so ready for this little guy to get here! Can I just say how freaking cute ryan is?? He had a huge box wrapped in blue wrapping paper and I couldn't wait to find out what was in it. When I opened it balloons came out and there was a ton of stuff inside. He bought me sweats and a robe for the hospital and a laptop. A laptop really?? I love love him. He is going to be the best daddy ever :) And, I had another doctor's appointment today. I'm 2 and a half centimeters dialated and 60% effaced!! My doctor told me to have a bag packed by the weekend just in case he decides to come early :) If he doesn't we're scheduled for my induction on November 19th!!
