I'm so behind.....

Ok, so I know I have slacked for the last few months! Deak and I have both been in school full time, and switching off taking care of Kaed :) But it's finally OVER!! and Now we're getting ready to move next week...haha the craziness never stops! But things are going great for our little family. Like I said we just finished school. I am absolutly LOVING nursing school and have made some great friends that help out along the way, and Deak really seemed to enjoy his classes and he did great! Kaed is growing us so fast! He just turned 9 months on the 15th, and he's been crawling now for almost 2 months now! And he's going to be walking in no time!

We are super excited to be moving!! So once we've gotten everything moved over and settled into our new place, I'll post pictures!!

Great Things are Happening!!!

Ok, so I know I haven't updated this thing in forever, but we've had a crazy, busy, wonderful summer, and it's sad to see it end next week. We've moved out of Mesaco (the ghetto of mesa, where all the signs are in spanish), I recieved my endowments, we we're sealed as a family and Kaed was blessed. Plus we've just been out having fun. The Temple was the most wonderful experience, and I am so grateful for the knowledge that families are eternal.

Besides the temple, the other great part has been watching Kaed as he grows and developes. I can't even believe he's already 5 months! We're so glad he's joined our family, he just makes life so much more enjoyable. He and Deak are already becoming the best of buddies, and I know Deak can hardly wait to take him out and play some ball.

Kaed's Blessing

Our Sealing

Kaed's 1st feeding (well, the first one he actually ate some of)
The summers gone by too quickly, but Deak and I are both eager to get started with school and get on with our careers. I'll be starting the nursing program at MCC and Deak has decided that he's going to pursue a degree in Special Education, which he will be great at. Wish us Luck!!!!

Poor Daddy....

Well, we've been home for the hospital for just over a week now, and I think we're all doing pretty good! I'm starting to get myself in a good routine so waking up in the middle of night doesn't take it out of me like it did right at first. Now we just need to get daddy on a schedule. I feel so bad, he's been so tired latley. But he's been wonderful!! He still gets up every morning and gets off to school, along with helping me with Kaed and of course stopping for a few seconds to give me a hug and make sure I'm feeling ok. He's definatly a great husband, and already a wonderful dad! :)

We got Kaed to his first Doctors appointment on Monday, and everything is good! He's a healthy little boy (although we already knew that). Also, I was having some concerns about my insicion from the C- section, so Dr. Falk had me come in to make sure. Everythings going good, and theres nothing to worry about, thank goodness! I am counting down the days that I will be able to get out of the house and drive again! Not that I don't love being able to take care of my baby, but sitting at home is definatly frustrating!!
The other good thing about me going in to see Dr. Falk is that I completely forgot about getting a picture with him and Kaed at the hospital. So thankfully I remembered to bring my camera, and was able to get a picture of them together at my appointment.

A New Beginning!

He's Finally Here!! Kaed Curtis Baker has joined our family as of March 15, 2010, and we are just sooo excited! He was born 3:00pm exactly and was 7lbs 14oz 20 1/2 inches long.

So my last post was sunday saying how there was no baby yet, and i think 7 hours later my water broke. We got to the hospital about 6:30, and got admitted right away, and it definatly wasn't a quick process, lol. We were there all through the night and as I was SLOWLY dilating, and finally at 12pm the following day I was to a 10. And since I had been there so long the nurse had me start pushing right away.

Once I started pushing we realized it was going to be an even longer process. When I would push he would come down and then as soon as I stopped he was just go right back up. What was happening was I had a bone that was sticking out keeping him from coming down the entire way. So, I wasn't making any progress. So finally after an hour and a half of pushing, Dr. Falk came in and we decided to take the baby C section.

This is Kaed, right as Dr Falk pulled him out. It was super cool of him, he to get ready for it and everything. It was really exciting!!
This is me during the whole procedure. Can you tell how tired I am? lol

Proud Daddy!

We just love having him around! and even after all that, I defianlty have to say, it's all worth it! He has been such a wonderful baby so far, i think he knows how tired I am since all that and is being extra good for us! Deak and I just love being parents- especially Deak! I think he was just born to be a dad, and I look forward to seeing us both grow, and learn together.

No baby yet.....

We will keep everyone updated, but at this point, No baby yet....

I went in for my first 1 week appt. on wed and Dr. Falk didn't want to check me, but we had him anyways, and we were very excited to find that I was already dilated to 3cm. But at this point contractions aren't near painful enough or consistant enough to get too excited. We're hoping sometime very VERY soon though (preferrably this week while Deak's on Spring Break)!! But don't worry, we will definatly keep everyone updated and informed.

It's a Boy!!

Well, Deak and I went into the doctor yesterday, and are VERY excited to announce, WE'RE HAVING A BOY!! We can't wait until he will be joining our family in March. And the baby is defiantly a Baker, haha, his stomach, arms and legs are in the 90%. So he's probably gonna be a big little boy! But when is having a chunky baby ever bad, right??

We have had names picked out since probably the week we found out I was pregnant, and if it was a boy it was going to be Curtis Thomas Baker, after both our dad's. But the night before we went into the ultrasound we decided to change it. So our little boy's name will be Kaed Curtis Baker. And Kaed, is Deak backwards, so we decided that deak's somewhat name sake should be our first boy. So we'll be using my dad's name for our 2nd boy.

Kaed Curtis Baker, Coming March 2010!!! :)
