Favorite baby must

This has been a life

When I got home I had a nice package from the wonderful people at

This pacificer stays in place because the little soft animal helps hold it from falling out of her mouth. I can prop it on Georgia's belly and she will hold on to it.

I just love this and it's so cute too!

Blessing day

Georgia's first outing was a 20 min trip to church to get a blessing on Easter Sunday. It was a special time that we wanted to share with my family while they were still in town.

Our visitors

We had to stay at the hospital for 3 days because it was a c-section but we had fun time getting to know the amazing staff at our hospital. everyone was so nice to us and several even inquired about chicblvd :) Since Georgia will be the future CEO of the Girlfriends guide. So many friends and family came out to wish us blessings and meet the new arrival.

My parents, youngest sister Emily, Brother John and his wife Amanda and their new little girl- Clara Jean came out all the way from Utah.

Welcome Georgia Jewel

I was so excited to finally have my c-section and meet our little girl.

I was scheduled to have the c-section in the main operating room because of my pregnancy complications including my uterus being attached to my abdominal wall. It was an exciting event for the entire hospital staff since they rarely see babies born down in the main operating room.
I was extremely nauseated during the first half of the procedure and could hear the doctors talking about my adhesions while trying to get to the baby. This took an extra 30 mins of careful maneuvers before they finally reached our beautiful little girl. I will keep the gory details to a minimum but they were able to fix my adhesions- Yippeee I can finally have a life again!
The c-section took about an hour and daddy went off with baby Georgia to the NICU and i stayed in the main OR for about 2 hours to recover. Although Georgia was perfectly healthy she had to go to the NICU because they didn't have all the baby monitoring in the main operating rooms.

Georgia Jewel weighed 7 lbs 14 oz! 19 1/5 inches long

Going to a Broadway Play- PeterPan- 37 weeks pregnant

Richard took me to see Peter Pan- It was so much fun for the first 10 mins! I couldn't sit still-being this pregnant is not easy to sit at a show for that long. It was still great to get out of the house and have some fun one on one time before the baby comes.
