Another Birth story. This time it's Kristen

So on April 6, 2005 I found out that I was pregnant with Kristen. Baili was only 4 months old when I got pregnant. I did not think that I could be pregnant since at the time precautions were taken to not have such happen, so for 2 months I was in denial, until alas I could not wait any longer and took a test which told the facts. I was in a bit of shock even though I suspected, and I did cry as I was scared to be pregnant with having a baby still. But we made the best of it. My due date was set for December 4, 2005.

Below is how big I was when Baili's first birthday came. Her birthday was October 28 so I had about a month to go before Kristen came. I was huge and I felt it!!!

On December 6, 2005 I was induced. I went 2 days over my due date. My mom came and stayed the night before because we were being induced in the morning. We went in at about 7:00 a.m. We got all hooked up to the monitors and they started me on pitoocin. I Everything was great. Not alot of pain. Then they wanted to break my water. I said that if they were gonna do that, that I would have to have and epidural before because I remember how my pain I was in when they did that with Baili. So they did. Everything went by pretty fast with Kristen. I had her at 6:31 p.m.

She was 10 pounds!!! Don't believe me? Look below and there is proof!

I felt great. I only pushed 2 times with her. It was way different then with Baili, as I was able to touch her head before she came out and see everything with the mirror there. It was amazing!

I thought that Baili had tons of hair when she was born, but holy smokes this little girl came with the mother load of hair. Everyone kept saying that she was a Mexican baby, or at least that she looked like one. LOL.

We had lots of visitors but our favorite was Big sister Baili. She loved Kristen instantly.

Her first bath was not by her aunt, but our nurses were all very nice.

After her first bath, you could really see how much hair she had. I could not get it to lay down either for the next 6 months her hair was always sticking straight up. I loved it!

Kristen was a great baby! She was very active, and always getting into stuff. She loved it when I sung to her and she loved to read books!

Baili and Kristen played really well with each other. Sometimes they would fight and they still do, but for the most part they are each others best friends and I am so glad about that. I love being a mom and yes it does have its struggles each day is also so rewarding.


  1. I don't know how you were able to not take a test if you thought you were pregnant! thats crazy! it seems like both your deliveries were pretty great, and both the girls too!

  2. I love her hair. I could look at that picture, after her bath, again and again.

  3. Good stories. It is a huge shock when you get pregnant and you only have a 4 month old! But it is super nice now cause they will be in school together and always have someone to fight over clothes with! :)

    I bet your heart burn was something fierce!!!!!

  4. Thanks for sharing, Thing are going good, you have beautiful girls!!
