Well time has just flown and I haven't been able to take the time to update our blog. So I am going to enter a few posts so that everyone can see what we have been up to for the last month. Mary Kate is getting so big and Sam and I are enjoying every moment of being parents. She is starting to sleep much better at night and is a lot more alert. I will comment more on my next few posts. I hope that you enjoy!

We finally had the opportunity to get some pictures of our familiy together. We are just loving our little family so much and having a blast being with Mary Kathryn. Although the night times are a little hard we enjoy every moment of being with her. Dad had to go back to work this week and is adjusting quite well. I am trying to get used to being home with her by myself. Sam is such a huge help so it took me a while to have my own routine. Mary sleeps most of the day and then is up all night. We are hoping that it gets a little better here over the next few weeks. Anyway, we are doing really well and having such a great time.

Today we gave MK her first sponge bath and she loved it. She was so happy being naked and wrapped up in her duck towel that her Aunt Hannah bought for her. She loved being massaged and clean. We had so much fun being with her and taking pictures. Sam really has gotten good at taking great shots. We hope that everyone is enjoying them as much as we are.
Things are going well for us. Not a whole lot of sleep at night. Of course she has days and nights mixed a little. She literally sleeps all day and you would think that Sam and I would get some good rest but it is hard to sleep during the day when the world doesn't stop when you have a kid. We have been able to get a lot of household chores done this week but getting very tired. I think that going forward naps are going to be key.
Sam is planning on going back to work on Monday afternoon and so we will see how mom does on her own. With not having a whole lot of experience with a baby- Sam has adapted almost too well. He is spoiling me and for those of you who know me well know that I have been spoiled my whole relationship with Sam and too think that it would change is crazy. Actually I think that it has gotten worse. He is so involved in everything that Mary does it is so sweet. He is the one that sits with us at every feeding and tickles her little feet to make sure that she stays awake. He has already complied several nicknames for her and you should see her little face when he talks to her. She is in love with her dad. I think that after 5 days it is safe to say that Mary is a "Daddy's little girl!"

Well we have had an exciting few weeks. On the 15th we went into the hospital with contractions and found that we were 2 centimeters dilated. The contractions were not strong enough to continue in labor so they sent us home. I have been having contractions since then but I guess not strong enough to be in true labor. We saw the doctor a few days later and we have set a date to be induced- we will be going to the hospital to be induced on October 30th. So we are having a Halloween Baby! Sam and I are so excited and just can't wait until next Tuesday. I am so ready and feeling very uncomfortable and anxious. We have had our bags packed and the house is ready so we just can't wait for Mary Kate to join our family. The next time we post to our blog it will hopefully be with pictures of Mary Kate!

Sorry to all that it has been a while since I have posted anything to the blog. I have been doing as good as I can be. I have some bad days and some good days. This week we will complete our 35th week and Sam and I are so thankful that we have been able to beat the odds and make it this far. I am still fighting contractions but the doctor says it is all OK. They did another ultra sound last week and Mary Kate came in at an estimated 5 lbs and 13 ounces. We were shocked because the doctor said that one side effect of the fibroid would be a small baby and she has been really small this entire time up until the 34th week. So Sam pushing me to eat all the time has made a big difference. So Mary Kate is doing really well, her mom on the other hand is getting very uncomfortable. I am not sleeping at all at night so lucky for me being on bed rest allows me to sleep all day.
I will tell you all Sam and I are so ready for Mary Kate to arrive. We have everything ready and just can't wait. I will be posting pictures of her nursery once Sam has a chance to take them.
