Adelynn Janae Fauver

tummy time
(yeah not the biggest fan)

she is so funny, she sleeps like this almost every time :)

I made that bow, not my best one ever, but she does not seem to mind much

OK so i don't just let my dog climb around her but I wanted anna to see this new person hanging around so she wouldn't be so curious.

I've been thinking

Tonight like the last few nights I've sat up with my little baby girl thinking about my life and rocking her to sleep. In my mind I was going through everything from my experiences as a little kid, up til now in my life and I was thinking about how some of my choices for good or for bad really landed me where I am today. . . I guess I bring this subject up because I find it hard (sometimes) to think about the past even though I may not have any real regrets its hard to think back because you get the bad with the good. But I also realize at the same time that the past makes you who you are, and all those lessons learned made me who I am and for that I am grateful, its just not always easy to think about. I literally thank the lord every night that even though I made allot of dumb mistakes and I was foolish that my bad decisions and good decisions = out to me having the life I have today. This song by Carrie Underwood spells out everything I've been trying to say tonight. I love this song, its called "lessons Learned" you can find it on my play list at the bottom of this page if you are interested in listening. I highly recommend it.

Labor was 37 hours with Adelynn although, I have to say it did not start to feel really bad until my water broke much later in the game. Thank goodness for epidurals they are the best!!! No offence to anyone out there who had a "natural child birth" with no pain killers whatsoever, I don't understand you. The pain killers were awesome and made the experience so much more comfortable and I was better able to focus on the labor than on the labor pains. :) I just have to say that so far in my life nothing has or will top having a child. It is so beautiful. I wouldn't say the afterbirth is lol but, having the child and seeing them after all the pain and the long months of waiting, well its just overwhelming how happy you are. Nothing tops it.
Recovering hasn't been much fun, there is allot more to it than I originally thought especially because I had not taken into account I would be recovering with all the late nights and early, early mornings but its all worth it when you see your happy baby looking back up at you.
I still have a while to go as far as recovering, I'm very tired most of the time and I don't feel like doing much except holding and feeding the baby and of course sleeping. But its getting better all the time and I'm so happy I hardly notice that I'm tired some days. Its amazing how that happens. Babies are the best.

I hope you like some of them. :)

Austin and sarahs wedding

I love you guys so much! I am so glad I was able to be with you on your special day!

Time is running out

So I just want to thank my sister in laws for their comments on my last post it really made me very happy! I love you both so much!
SOOO I found out today that I will be induced either Sunday (whenever) or first thing Monday! The Doctor is trying to get me worked into the hospital he says they have been very busy over there and so anyways he has me on "stand by" so I'm packing my bags and trying not to freak out til then! :) Man I could really use some help some female help to help me decorate the baby's room because it's really not done at all! And I'm worried. Of course. lol
Thank goodness though for my mom she organized all the clothes and hung up many things for me but I worry about the furniture and curtains etc cause they are sort of just lying on her floor not hung or put together. Oh well. I'm doing the best I can with what I got here. :)
I am oh so excited for little Adelynn to be here and she will be so little I can't believe how little she will be it blows my mind! I always thought I would have some 10 pound baby but she will be a teeny weenie little five something baby! & I've been reassured that even though that is very small it wont really affect her health. Wheew.
Anyway, Joel and I just barely got our Internet and cable set up in our home so I can blog again. Hence me on here the last couple of days! he he It has not been fun being away especially because I've been down resting allot but I have to say in that time period I've gotten allot of good out of it. Sure my life has been super quiet but I've gotten allot of reading and scripture study done. I've wrote in my diary which I've always up til now, been so bad about!
I don't know in some ways it has not been fun, but in other ways it has been great.
& I'm sure I will be missing the naps, the reading and time to myself to think when the baby is screaming for me lol. yay!
