May 2010

Now that there are two kids to write letters to, I thought I’d make it easier on myself and combine them into a monthly newsletter.

Cooper turned 42 months (3 ½ yrs) old on May 20th and Skyler made her grand entrance into the world on May 23rd. It’s been quite an adjustment for all of us, but we are loving every minute of it.

My mom came to stay with us for a while to help me while we were waiting for Skyler to come. We kept things pretty low key and didn’t do a whole lot, just kept to our normal routine. My dad came to visit and the night before he was going back home for work, I went in to labor…at 2am…again. Not sure why both my labors started in the middle of the night, but I’m glad it happened on its own and I didn’t have to be induced. Jeff and I went to the hospital around 5am. Skyler came in to the world at 11:25am the ‘normal’ way. No c-section this time, yay! She weighed in at 8 pounds, 5 ounces and was 19.5 inches long.

Cooper wore his ‘Big Brother’ shirt to the hospital and met his baby sister for the first time.

Jeff’s parents and my grandparents came to visit and meet Skyler in the hospital. We brought her home two days later wearing the same outfit I came home from the hospital in thirty two years before.

Cooper loves his baby sister. He asks to hold her every morning. He gives her kisses and talks to her all the time. It is so sweet watching him love on her.


I can’t believe we have two kids now. Let the craziness begin!
