Hospital Packing List

I just wanted to post these pictures so that I can remember what I took to the hospital with baby boy. Hopefully, this will help me when packing for baby #3 (if/when we have baby #3) 

Boston's Birth Story

Yesterday I went to my regularly scheduled doctors appointment at 2:45pm. The doctor, Ann Blackette, checked me and stripped my membranes. She said I was at 5 cm and 70%. She told me that she was surprised that I hadn't had the baby yet and that stripping my membranes should move things along. 
Well that's just what happened! At about 5pm Jordan got home from work and began telling me all about his day. I was having contractions during this time but not enough to time them. Then at about 6pm I decided I better start tracking them because they were getting more frequent. While I was waiting I was up doing dishes and getting things ready invade this was the real deal. After about 30 minutes of consistent contractions about 3-5 minutes apart I decided it was time to go to the hospital. So, we loaded up Kinzlie, took her to Johnny and Denise's house, and made our way to the hospital :)
We checked into the hospital at around 7:15pm. I was admitted and given a bed and then checked, I was at 6cm! I was then given my epidural and told that I was going to have a baby that night! After I got my epidural things seemed to move right along:) Trissa got to the hospital around 10pm so that she could take pictures, and she got there right on time!  At around 10:25pm the nurse called my doctor and they got everything set up for little mans arrival. I began pushing at about 10:30pm and after 3 or so pushes he was here! 
He was 7lbs 6oz and 20inches long. His birthday is Thursday December 12, 2013 at 10:38pm :) He has a little bit of blonde hair and blue-ish eyes. And, from what I can tell he has this Daddy's chin and nose. 
Somehow I knew he would be born on the 12th because at my baby shower 2 weeks ago that is the day I guessed. Also, I have been up cleaning, organizing, and moving furniture around all day trying to prepare for his birth:) I feel sort of silly know though because earlier today I was stressing out about whether or not to get induced on the 19th but I turns out that Boston was as ready to meet me as I was to meet him :)
Jordan and I both love and adore him so much already and I know that when Kinzlie get here she will love him too! 
We are having our photographer come on the 13th around 10am to get pictures of Kinzlies first time meeting her little brother, and some family shots as well. I couldn't be happier with my handsome little man!

Kinzlie says the Funniest Things

Kinzlie is quite the character and has such a cute little personality :) She is always saying funny things so I decided to jot some down so we don't forget.

-"what does Santa say?" Ho ho ho merry christmas tree
-"what does the fox say?" Ding ding ding (based on the song "what does the fox at by ylivis)
-" what does daddy say?" No no no
-" what does momma say?" Weee wee weee (while playing worlds smallest violin)
- " what does kinzlie say?" (Blows kisses)
- whoo-she (we don't really know what it means but she says it when she's "reading" stories)
- Bowen (we don't know what this means either but whenever she says it she sticks her arms straight out with her hands flexed)
- morning sunshine
- nastics on Wednesday
- I need this
- ah I'm naked (whenever she changes her clothes or take a bath)
-cars don't squish us (when we cross a parking lot or road)

Baby Boy Allen

I had a doctors appointment today to check on little man. I am right at 37 weeks and I'm ready to meet my little bundle of joy :) Apparently my body is getting ready too because I am 4cm dialated and 70% effaised! Little mans heart beat is sitting right at 150bpm which is just right. 
I've got my hospital bag all packed and ready to go. We still need to set up the play pen in our room and get the car seat  put in the car but other than that were pretty much ready for him :)

Baby shower for baby boy Allen

Last night I was surprised with a baby shower! Jordan told me to get ready so we could go to dinner and we would just drop kinzlie off at his moms while we were eating. But, when we go to his moms I got a big surprise when I walked in the door! All of my friends and family were there for a baby shower put on by Kirsten and Trissa :) 
We filled out a baby stats paper with all of our predicted info about little mister. Then we played a matching game and the winner got a prize :) After the games were done we had some snacks and opened presents. I got a new double stroller from Jordan, Johnny and Denise, and Lynn and Jess. Then I also got a bunch of clothes, blankets, diapers and wipes for little man. Now I am all set for his arrival(hopefully)! I am so blessed to have such great in laws that were willing to put on a baby shower for me :) I am also greatful to every one who was able to make it and support me! 

After the baby shower we went to dinner at sizzler with my mom, grandma, aunt rand, and auntie em. Then we got to go swimming at their hotel :)
