New Do!

Look what I did! On Thursday I got a new look. I have had blond hair my whole life, but have always wanted to try something dark. I could never bring myself to do it. Until now. David always said he didn't want my hair darker & and then finally last week he said go for it. So here's my new hair. It is a dark chocolate brown, but almost looks black right now. I really like it, but I'm still shocked every time I pass a mirror.
There's also a few pictures of my sweet babies. They are both doing great! Reese is 1 month old. I can't believe she already that old. She is eating really well & weighs 8 lb 13 oz. She's such a little doll!

Reese's Arrival!

It's been 2 weeks & 6 days since our little girl made her debut. Here what happened!

We got to the hospital around 1:30 on Oct 16. They started me on Pitocin around 2:30. Things were moving along pretty well and contraction were steady & somewhat mild. I had every intention of getting my epidural before things got too intense, but I didn't act fast enough!!! While I was up going to the restroom, my water broke on it own. That was around 6:00pm. From that point on, things got a little rough. It took a little while for them to get the epidural there & then 4 pokes in the spine before they got it in the right way. The epidural itself was very painful, on top of the worst contractions ever. The pitocin sure did make a difference. It was not that bad with Davis. After the epidural was in, it took another hour before, I felt some relief. After about an hour & a half of torture (that was well worth it), things got better!!! :) Reese was ready to meet us. We were getting set up to push & She didn't want to wait. It took 1 contraction & 3 pushes and she was here! Sh
e was a super easy delivery! We were so happy to meet our little girl. Here are a few pictures of us in the hospital, on her birthday, and the days following. We love our little Reese Elizabeth!


Happy Halloween from my little Pumpkin & big Gorilla. We have had so much fun with our new addition. Davis loves his sister so much. He wants to hold Reese all the time. I'm so proud of him. He's done so great with such a big change. I'll update more later. Keep checking back.
