We're HOME!

Bailey and I were able to come home today.  She was quite the early and fast surprise last Wednesday evening.  I was in labor a total of 3 hours.  She wasn't due until the 21st of May.  Bailey Dakota was born April 20th at 6:54 pm. weighing 4lbs 13oz.  She had to spend a week in the NICU first because of low blood sugar and then they found an infection.  While that was being treated with antibiotics, she was also being treated for jaundice.  But all is well now and we are home.

She had to be kept under a warmer for a few days off and on to keep her body temperature where it should be.

All snuggled up in her NICU crib

Home at last

Her sister is a BIG fan of her for now.  Ryleigh kept telling us about her the whole way home and wanted her out of her car seat the second we walked in the house.  Ryleigh couldn't see her in the NICU so today was the first meeting of this sister we kept talking about.

Spring Break

Today is my last day of spring break:(  We didn't do a whole lot this week but I had a great time spending the week home with Ryleigh.  It makes me even more excited for summer vacation that is just right around the corner.

Last weekend we started to attempt to potty train Ryleigh.  It wasn't very successful so I gave up on Tuesday.  But we did get some cute pictures.
Books kept her attention on the potty for only the first few days.  After that, she hollered everytime we put her on the potty.

This one was her favorite to look at.

Yesterday we went over to my sister-in-laws house and we made adorable carseat covers for our new little ones.

Then we came home and played ball outside since it was a beautiful day.
Being cautious to not step in a doggie mess.

Walking in Lizzie's path

Today was another beautiful day so after we ran a few errands and got Ryleigh her first pair of flip flops, we headed to the park.
