Happy Valentines Day!


We finally got to come home from the hospital on Valentines Day! Just an update... we originally came home from the hospital on Tuesday with Lexi and she was doing good but they told us she was jaundice and we would need to really feed her a lot to keep the levels down. On Thursday we had her tested and came to find out that she would need to go back to the hospital for a few more days to go under the bili-lights. It was pretty upsetting to us at first, but we are really glad that we went back in and now don't have to worry about whether or not she is healthy. We got to come home yesterday on Valentines Day. The difference in Lexi is night and day. She has a lot more energy and wakes up on her own with a healthy appetite. She is really strong... allready trying to hold her head up and has the cutest personality. Although I have yet to catch a good picture of it, she smiles all the time. She is so sweet and Will and I are madly in love with her. We are so lucky to have such a sweet baby. We are definetely floating on a cloud at the moment. It felt nice to get home yesterday... I got to dress her up in her Valentines outfit and believe it or not we were brave enough to leave the house and went out to eat with my mom and dad for their anniversary! Thanks for everyone's support and prayers for our baby! We can't wait for you all to meet her!

My Favorite Room

My favorite room in the house is definetely the nursery. I think one of the funnest parts about having a baby is decorating the room and finding a spot for all of the cute things you get. I am about a week away from my due date and reality is starting to set in. First there is the reality that I am sure won't fully hit us till we are in the hospital in labor... that we are actually having a living breathing baby that is going to totally depend on us to take care of it... we are going to be mommy and daddy for the rest of eternity... and all of these adorable things that I go stare at every day in the nursery are finally going to get put to use. I have so many cute outfits... I don't know how I will choose what to dress her in everyday. I will probably change her outfit 5 times before I leave the house(: I just can't wait to meet her... to see what she looks like... to hold her and kiss her! I love her so much allready and I haven't even met her yet! I hope she gets here soon!
