Paige Nikole Oswald

Our baby girl arrived on Sunday March 21, 2010 at 4:36 p.m. She weighed 6 lbs. 13 oz. and is 19 1/2 inches long. Coleman and i got to the hospital at 7 a.m. so they could induce me. Dr. Leavitt came in and broke my water at 9:30 and i had her by 4:36 p.m. Labor went really well. It seemed like it took forever but when i think back on it, it wasn't bad at all. I only pushed for a half hour all together. Coleman got the wonderful experience of being able to help deliver her. The umbilical cord was wrapped around her neck 3 TIMES! Which was really scary. And there were many things wrong with her placenta. Dr. Leavitt said that we are very lucky that she came when she did. She is the most perfect little girl and we are so blessed to have her in our lives. She has done really great with nursing and only cries when she is hungry or needs her diaper changed. She is wonderful. Having a child has been the greatest experience of my whole life and it has definitely been an emotional one too. I just feel so blessed that Heavenly Father has given us such a sweet little spirit and that she is healthy and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect little girl. Here are some pics of her. We just love her to death.

I was so happy when she finally arrived!

The love of our lives!

Our new little family.

Here she is getting ready to go to the doctor.

I just love her SO much.

I love this picture because i think she is pulling a face that looks just like her daddy.

Baby Paige should be arriving any day now! We went to the doctor on Wednesday and they told us that she is 2 weeks behind on her growth but they said she looks very healthy and everything else looks great! I am dilated to 4 cm and I am SOOOO ready to have her here with us already. Cole and I have everything ready and are so excited for her to join our family. Coleman is so cute about it and couldn't be more excited! He is going to be such a great dad. If i haven't had her by Sunday the 21st they will induce me that morning. As of right now i don't feel like much progress has been made so i am just expecting to be induced. Anyways just thought i'd let you all know. Be watching for a new post.. The next one will be all about baby Paige!!!! Yay!!

36 weeks

Our appointment went pretty well this week. Baby Paige is measuring a week behind but they said they are just going to keep monitoring it and we'll go from there. When they checked me this week i was dilated to a 2. I thought that was pretty good news. I know you can stay there for awhile before you progress at all but it just means we are that much closer for her arrival! We can't wait. I am definitely uncomfortable and very excited that we don't have much longer left. So here is her ultrasound picture from this weeks appointment. She was so cramped in there that we couldn't get any good face shots but we did get this fun one of her ear and the side of her head. You can see that she has hair!!! That made me happy! It's amazing how detailed these ultrasound pictures can be. It is so fun to see our baby so often i just can't wait to hold her and to finally  meet her. She could be here at anytime now.

So yesterday (sunday) was our one year anniversary!! I can't believe how fast it went!! It seems like just yesterday when we got married! We have had such and awesome year and have had so much fun together! We decided that instead of getting each other something we would go shopping for some new pillows because neither of us were big fans of the ones we had. We went to Sam's club on Saturday and found some really nice ones that we both love! We also found an awesome decoration that we decided would be perfect above our couch. So we decided to treat ourselves to that too! Except for when we took it out to the car to go back to Cole's parents house we discovered that it was too big to fit in the trunk or the back seat! So we had to call Sara to come meet us at Sam's Club with Coleman's truck! Ha. What fun that was chilling by the car. Ann was with us and decided to make good use of her time so she walked over to Albertson's to do some grocery shopping! It worked out well. Although my back was killing me from sitting on bleachers for most of the day so Coleman got in the car and i just stood outside of it!
And here is what it looks like above our couch.

On the day of our anniversary there wasn't much to do since it was a Sunday. We did get a few things hung up around the house during the day. It was great to just hang out and spend some time together.
Here is a picture of the princess sign above the baby's crib.

And here is a picture of her bedding.

I am definitely ready for our baby girl to be here! My heartburn has just gotten worse and there is no more room in my belly for her to move around so she just hurts me when she tries! And i waddle! I am nesting for sure too. I have been panicing to make sure all of the stuff in her room is ready to go. I started packing my hospital bag today. Coleman has been bugging me to get it packed so i guess i will. I have had so much fun getting all of her clothes washed and organized. I just can't wait for her to get here!! Not too much longer : )

Go Bees!

On Saturday I went to Karli's cheer competition! It was pretty fun! I love going and watching all of the different routines. Everyone did really well. I was so impressed with Bonneville's performance and how well they did! Karli did awesome at her first competition. She made us proud! They got first place in there division and had an overall awesome score! Congrats girls you all did great! Good luck at state!
