Preslie Jo Jenkins is here!!!

I know, I know, it has almost been 2 weeks since she was born and I am now just blogging! I have a good excuse though. My husband dropped our camera when I was being moved from the triage room to my regular room. We managed to get about 3 pictures right after she was born and that was it. So I finally made it to Costco and bought a new camera, except it didn't get taken out of the box until Saturday. So she will be 2 weeks old tomorrow.

Just a little run down of the day she was born. Tuesday October 14th I started having contractions at about 5 am. I got up and started doing some work in the office and then decided it might be the real thing this time so I decided to get in the shower and get ready before the kids had to be up. By the time I got done showering I was in some serious pain but I wasn't going to the hospital without doing my hair. So somehow I managed to get my make-up on and hair done in between contractions that were coming every minute or so. Luckily Dave hadn't left for work yet and he got Chace and Raygan ready, got Chace on the bus, Raygan to the neighbors, and by the time he got back I was standing at the door waiting, about ready to DIE! So we drove to the hospital and arrived at about 9 am and I delivered Preslie at 9:53 a.m. Yes, if her head wouldn't have been turned backwards Dave would have probably delivered her in the car. Everything went pretty smoothly and we were released the next day. She was 8 pds 5 oz and 19 1/2 inches long. She is an excellent baby and we love her to death. Dave is working out of town now until January so I'm all on my own during the week but we seem to manage. Here are a few of the pictures I have managed to get finally!
Don't I look beautiful??? Ha, Ha, Ha!!!
Minutes after being born. Remember, Dave was the one taking pictures! He needs a few lessons I think!
Here she is napping today! Isn't she so cute!
And I managed to get a picture while she was awake. Very rare!

Zero days to go!!!

Ok, do you all notice the little baby countdown to the right of the page? Yes, you're right, it says ZERO days left until the baby is due! So I thought at about 10pm last night I was going into labor so I started madly cleaning my kids rooms because they had friends over that day and that always creates quite the disaster. Then I was nervous about going into labor in the middle of the night because then what in the heck was I going to do with my kids! So I think between the cleaning and the nerves, Preslee decided she would wait a little longer! So I get to go to church today and hear all the fun little comments about STILL being pregnant! But on the bright side, I wouldn't trade it for anything! Have a great sunday everyone!

Latest pics of the kids!

Well, I have had a few people wondering if I have had this baby yet, and the answer is.........NO! My due date is tomorrow and who would have guessed that after going into labor almost 8 weeks ago that I would now be looking at going past my due date. So hopefully any day now. Except not Monday or Tuesday because Dave has to go take care of some work out of town those two days! So if this little girl decides to come then, hopefully she will take it slowly so Dave can get here in time!

I went and had Chace's 8 year pictures taken yesterday and we threw Raygan in a few of them. I will post a few of them. Just so you know, the pictures are a little deceiving. Chace and Raygan actually look like they like each other. Well, don't get me wrong, they do like each other, but they certainly don't always get along this well with each other.

I will try and update as soon as I have the baby, but we all know how good I am at updating! Have a great weekend everyone!
