More Pictures of the Girl

I couldn't figure out how to turn this around but here it is anyway
so cute!

This is at our apartment, whuch I will post pictures of cause people keep wanting to see where we live these days, She is so sweetie!

Emmry on her blessing day with her Mimi. My mom made the dress

This is just of her being cute, She looks like me but has Austin's coloring

Massive Post to Update

In the NICU
She had an IV in her head and a feeding tube

She had to take full feedings on her own before being discharge

She looks like a burrito baby

So the reason why there has not been a post in about forever and a day is because our computer was acting stupid and when we finally found a friend to look at it he said "no problem" and then without notice decided to fallow the band Phish on tour. So I am using my parents.

Item 1- Emmry
I had the peanut on March 19th at 9:01 pm by c-section. I was scheduled to be induced on April 4th because of complications with my diabetes but she came earlier cause my uterus sucks. I thought I peed my pants but it turned out that it was indeed my water that had broke. Austin was working so I gave him a call and told him not to worry but to hurry up and come home. I didn't feel a single contraction so I wasn't panicking. He came home and off we went.

When we arrived the nurse thought that i just had heavy leaking but i corrected her and said that my water straight up broke. She still didn't believe me so they sent me away to walk around for a bit and collect fluid they could test. As I was leaving I told them I just dumped a ton of fluid on the examining table if they wanted to test that. We were about to get in the elevator when the nurse came running out and said they were convinced that I was in labor.

Emmry was breech and they planned to try and move her but when my water broke that was no longer an option so c- section it is! The whole thing was weird, but went great. Emmry Catherine Wiley was born at 5ib 9oz and 18.5 in. Not bad for six weeks premature.

Although she was healthy she was just to little and weak for us to take home. She had to be in the NICU for 2 weeks and it was definitely the hardest thing we have ever gone through. She was a champion though and all the nurses loved her.
We finally got to bring her home on April 3rd. She had to be on oxygen for a few weeks but other then that she was perfect.

So I have been hiding out the past month, things have been crazy with work and... well just work. But our baby is growing and that's exciting. I found out that I am going to be induced 3 weeks early so I can bypass that whole last month of baby making were you become a water balloon. Her room is almost finished we have registered for all the baby crap we need. I hope she's cool, I mean just cause she's a baby doesn't mean that she won't be a little bitch. That's right I said it, babies can be bitches too.
There is just so much I want her to know and I want her to be strong and love who she is. I want her to be able to tell me everything and even though I am her mom I want to be able to relate. I know those are all things parents want for thier kids but let's be real, few actually achieve it. I can see as a parent it can be easy to lose sight of the world of a child, but I don't want to.

Half Way

So we are half way done making a human and so far everything is going great. I feel really lucky cause I haven't been sick and it seems that everywhere I go people are telling me how beautiful and fabulous I look, which I strange cause random people never told me that before. I guess an extra 20 pounds round the middle suits me.
I am now sure when Emmry moves that it's her and not gas and I feel that I have some more control over my eating when in the past my hunger dominated. My boobs are pretty much not fiting into anything so thats starting to pose a bit of a challenge and sometimes my tummy bumps into cliens but other then that adjusting as been okay, I just hope it continues to go this smoothly.
Austin and I really miss Emmry, if thats the word for it, I an not sure how you miss someone you have never met but I don't know how else to say it. Austin is always talking to her and telling me how he wants to take her camping and capture and train a falcon for her (yeah, that's his nerdy dream, but he wans to make it come true for his baby). We are just enjoying our new little home and our next project is Emmry's room, it all is moving along very fast but we are anxious so we want to keep up the progress. Now we have to christmas shop and that gives me a headache.

Here we are

So much has happened since June when we were married. We lived in a studio apartment in downtown Denver next to coffee shops and vintage clothing stores. We were surrounded by victorian homes and art life. Late at night we would awake to stumbling, intoxicated residences and the nightlife all around. Well... we have changed all of that. In late August I found out I was with child and we knew then that this life we had was just not going to work, so here we are now in old town Littleton. It is a charming area with shops and cafes and although it is not as lively as Denver we think that it will be good fit for us and our baby girl... yes it is a girl. Emmry Catherine to be excat. I have the best and most supportive husband who works long hours brewing beer at a local microbrewry to make a home for us. He has been awesome through all the changes. I am anxious to see what motherhood will be like. We don't know anyone else with children so we are kind of on our own when it comes to friends with advice, but no bother, that seems to be the trend thus far. I think thats why we make such a good team, we don't know anyone our age with the same ideals so it's perfect we have one another.
