One month old, among other things..

So Jillian was born a little over a month ago. And she's grown so much!!! Karielle still adores her little sister. Unfortunately, we all picked up a bug from SOMEWHERE. Probably a shopping cart since I specifically didn't take Kari to nursery so she wouldn't pick up something from one of the other kids. Anyway, so all 4 of us are sick. It's been pretty miserable around here the past couple of days. But I took a few cute pictures, dispite sick, cranky kiddos. Oh, and I french braided Kari's hair! So cute!! :D

Just wanted to show you...

Check this out.....

Aside from the obvious weight difference, they look exactly alike. They could be twins.

Three weeks old, 21 months old!

Hey everyone!!! I've got some new pictures for you!! Jillian had her two week checkup last monday and she's doing great!! Growing like a weed!! She's at the 50th percentile for everything. :D She gained a whole pound in two weeks!! It took Kari a month to gain a pound. Jillian eats like a vacume cleaner so I'm expecting the weight gain to continue. As for me, I'm feeling pretty good!! I'm already down 8 lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight. Belly is still flabby, but hey, I just pushed a baby out, give me a minute. lol!! Karielle is doing great! She's loving "her" baby. lol! She's been thrown into her terrible twos but we're dealing with it. She's not really liking me right now, but that's okay as long as she likes her sister. So now Jillian is three weeks old and Karielle is 21 months old!! Where on earth did the time go??

This outfit Kari is wearing I actually got from my friend Anna for my baby shower when I was pregnant with Kari, she can FINALLY fit in it. LOVE IT ANNA!!

My whole world is right here. :D

Okay people, sorry, it's been a while. But here's the story.
On the 25th of March at 6 am we went to the hospital to be induced. Long story short, after 27 hours and three hours of pushing with a little help from a vacume, Jillian FINALLY made her appearance. She had the cord wrapped really tightly around her neck which was keeping her from coming out. When they were pulling it off, the cord ripped a little bit. So everyone was freaking out. Jillian was blue and not breathing on her own at first. She was on oxygen for about a minute. But she bounced back really quickly and she's absolutely perfect. My mom was able to come up for three weeks and she took care of Kari, she was an absolute life saver because we were stuck in the hospital until sunday afternoon because I'd gotten a fever during labor and they wanted to make sure Jillian didn't get sick. So Jillian is now 10 days old. She's really mellow and she eats a TON. She's the polar opposite of Karielle, which is really good in this case because Kari was a very needy baby. We had a fun easter (I'll post more about that later) and mom left this morning so now I need to figure out how to do this all myself. lol! Thank you everyone for your prayers! Love you all!
