shelby, gary, me and Dr Jiriko

more pics


Shelby Lyn is finally here! She was born on March 7, 2006 at 4:30 in the morning. She was 20 inches long and 6 lbs 11 oz. I was in labor from 6:30 pm on the 6th until 4:30 the next morning. It was a very wonderful experience, we had to use the vaccum extractor to get her out because she was stuck on my pelvic bone so she has a little lump on her head that will take a few months to go away. Since we brought her home she has been keeping me up all night long and she just sits there awake until I try and lay her down and then she cries. Lately she has been doing some really funny facial expressions that are similar to her daddy's scuz look. She also smiles when she is tooting =). I cant believe that it has been 2 weeks since she was born, it has flown by and I love being with her all day long. I do miss my friends at work but its nice to have a break for awhile (even if it is a short while). The funniest thing that shelby does is pee whenever you take off her diaper to change it. She usually waits until you are looking at the box of wipes or reaching for her clothes to pee all over the changing table. She has a cute little face and of course i think that she is the cutest baby ever! I wont lie, taking care of a baby is not easy and it is very time consuming. It is hard to get up in the middle of the night, especially when i am used to sleeping for like 12 hours (like i did when i was pregnant). Its also very hard to have an added responsibility after being so stuck in my ways for almost 6 years, its definitly a challenge but i am working hard to do my best. The dogs are having sort of a hard time getting used to her, they bark when she cries and Kobe J gets very anxious whenever we have her downstairs. Hopefully he gets used to her sometime soon. Well, i am attaching more pictures since i am sure that is what everyone wants to see, make sure to comment if you would like and remember to leave your name so i know who its from!! PEECE!
