Baby shower at the Arc

The Friday before I went on leave my wonderful co-workers had a baby shower for me. Ryan made an amazing cake for me. And everyone got me wonderful gifts. It was a joy to celebrate this wonderful time with my work family!

Isn't this cake amazing!!! Thanks you sooo much Ryan!!!

Kaylee Jeanne

Kaylee Jeanne was born April 4, 2013 at 1:20pm. She was 10lbs 3 oz. I was induced early. I went into the hospital the night of April 3. Through the night the dr's started to induce me, by morning i was ready for pain meds and by 8ish I was ready for my epidural. I started active labor around 11. I think the doctor was quite surprised by the size of Kaylee since I was hypertensive for most of my pregnancy (which I was told meant smaller babies...hahahaha). Kaylee's shoulder's got stuck, and she stopped breathing for a minute. She had to go and spend a few hours in NICU. She was the largest baby there.  Luke spent the night after I had her with me in the hospital. The kids stayed with our sitter. The next day Luke picked up the kids and they all came to visit us in the hospital. I spent a total of three night, and Kaylee spent two nights. Now for the best part....pictures....

 So Easter was a good day. Earlier in the week the kids and I colored eggs. Qyanna had quite fun doing that.

 Easter Morning getting their baskets. Qyanna of course loved it....love her faces.

 Then on to the egg hunt. Since we are still in Alaska, and there is like two feet of snow on the ground we hide the eggs in the house. So around the house the kids go looking for eggs.
