Our Sweet Baby Kenadee Rae made her grand entrance into this world on July 9, 2010. She weighed in at 6lbs 12oz and 20in long. We could not be more excited and in love with this little girl. Labor and Delivery was not bad at all and I feel very blessed about that. We came home from the hospital on Sunday and are just adjusting to life with this sweet new baby. She LOVES to sleep during the day and it is quite a chore to get her to eat. Since she sleeps so much during the day she obviously LOVES to be up at night. Fun for mom! Today she has been much more alert that she has been so we will cross our fingers that she has a good night tonight! Even with the lack of sleep and the other adjustments parenting has brought we feel so blessed with this little girl. We love you baby!!!

This last Wednesday I went in for my weekly Dr. appt and was told that I now have the lovely opportunity of being on bed rest because I am in the early stages of toxemia. Great!! I went in this morning for another appt and was told that my blood pressure is actually higher than it was on Wednesday (140 over 90) and it is 146 over 100. Not bad you might say, but my blood pressure is usually 100 over 60. She said my liver and kidney function looks great but that when they tested my blood sugar it was 43! I had just eaten an hour before I had my blood drawn. Needless to say, I am going incredibly stir crazy at my house, but luckily I have my sweet husband at home to entertain me. Poor guy! He has a long weekend and we get to spend it at home. I am really bummed that we have to miss the 4th of July festivities, especially since it's my favorite holiday, but baby girl is so worth it. I am under instruction that I am to go to the hospital if I feel any worse at all. Now let the waiting game begin!
