Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays to all our family and friends!! I love this time of the year. I have enjoyed all the Christmas lights, decor, and of course, the Christmas music. My husband is already sick of Christmas because I have Christmas music playing non-stop. I'm not sorry to say, I'm NOT sorry!! I love my Christmas music!

We enjoyed our time home for Thanksgiving. We also finally blessed Chandler Thanksgiving weekend. Here are a few picture updates!

This is Chandler's newest thing..he loves watching TV with that bad?

Gotta love the bubbles!

This is his favorite sleeping position, looks comfortable..

Jabba The Hut #2

Jabba the Hut was my nickname when I was a baby...sadly, but true. Wynn was also a really chubby baby as well. It doesn't help that Chandler STILL eats around the clock, but he is looking quite like Jabba the Hut. He is seriously growing like a weed, except not in length...but definitely in width. We still love him though. He is now a little over 7 weeks now and is doing really well. His rash has finally cleared up, while I was back on eating dairy, so pretty sure he isn't lactose intolerant. I am so relieved!! He is smiling more and more each day and tries to talk to me. It's pretty cute.

The double chin on the left...I'm not so proud of...but he's working on it, so he says. Like father like son, right?

This is the "Winnie the Pooh" mobile that is over Chandler's crib. It is the SAME mobile that Wynn had when he was a baby. His mother actually used it for all six of her that would make it over 30 years old!! and it still plays the "winnie the pooh" song. It almost looks homemade....but no, it was purchased at Sears about 32 years ago. Pretty sentimental isn't it? Wynn is pretty proud of this mobile.

Weekend Fun

It's been some time since I updated our blog. Chandler is now 6 weeks old. I can't believe how fast time flies and how big Chandler is growing. He now weighs 10lbs. 14ounces already..yes he is getting fat really fast.

We had a great Halloween weekend with our good friends Chad and Rachel. Here are some pictures of Chandler in his festive outfit. He has had a really bad rash on his face, so he doesn't look the greatest right now. We took him to the doctors this weekend and he said that it is more likely an allergic reaction to dairy products. So as of now I am completely off dairy products. It has been extremely difficult because I have noticed that i eat a lot of dairy. pretty much nothing tastes good without cheese. Anyone else agree? So hopefully his rash will get better.

Halloween weekend we took Chandler out for his first swim. Surprisingly enough, he actually enjoyed it. Here are several pictures of our weekend. Enjoy.

The pool only had one size of swimming diaper. It came up to his chest. It was way funny.

Photo Shoot

These are the latest pictures of Chandler. He is 2 weeks old today, and has already changed a lot to me. He is getting cuter everyday!

Chandler's first bath

Chandler had his first bath at Grandma Lori's house and obviously...didn't like it so much. He screamed the entire time.

Here he is all clean and wrapped up in his towel. He's a little tuckered out and not very happy...but made a cute picture!

Sweet Baby Chandler

Here are some more recent pictures of Baby Chandler. It has been quite eventful getting to know him and adjusting to being a mommy. Chandler has brought such a sweet spirit into our little home. We are so blessed to have him as part of our family.

Our Baby Has Arrived.....Wait a's a BOY!?!?!

Our baby has finally arrived!! Wynn and I have been enjoying this time with our cute little child. We have prepared a cute pink little nursery to bring this baby girl home too, but as shocking as this may sound....she didn't come out a girl.......she came out a boy!!! We could not believe our eyes at the time, but he is definitely, 100% boy. He weighes 7 lbs. 15 oz. and is 20 inches long. As far as the birth story, I was induced on Tuesday evening, and at first was progessing fairly well. I then stopped progressing and was dilating at a 5 for about 5 hours. The baby was showing signs of stress and struggled to keep his heart rate up. The doctor came in and checked me yesterday at about 4:30, and informed me that I have a very narrow pelvic bone and that it was a very tight fit for the baby. They could already tell that the baby's head was a little cone-shaped for being stressed down in the birth canal for so long. He told me that he would give me one more hour, and that if I didn't progress, we would have to have a cesarean delivery. As lucky as I am, I didn't progess and was not dilating any further and the baby was in even more stress. The doctor stressed that we did cesarean right away. Afterwards, the doctor told me that there was no way that I could have delivered this baby vaginally, and that this was the only way. It is a little disappointing about my pelvic bone, but I am trying to look on the bright side of things, rather than dwelling on the negative. More than likely, all of my babies will be cesarean deliveries.

SO, we now have this precious baby boy. We were super surprised, but now that he is here, we are so happy that he is a boy and would have it no other way. Luckily, we already had a boy name picked out, Chandler Wynn Jones. Yes, you will notice his PINK pacifier in these pictures, and more than likely, he could go home in a little pink outfit because right now, that's all he's got. So enjoy these pictures, some aren't the best of him, but it's all I have for right now. I hope you all enjoy and I will post more at a later time.
