Hi all! Sorry that it's taken me so long, life has been pretty busy and exciting. We're LOVING it! Jame is enjoying his new job a Cody Labs and they have been really great to our family. I began a new semester of school three days after I gave birth to our new, sweet baby girl: Addalyn Grayce Kelley. Here is the labor story for those of you that enjoy that sort of thing :) I began having consistent contractions at about 6:00 on January 7th and Jame had taken the kids to play at Mugga's house because he knew that I wasn't feeling very well and he wanted be to be able to relax a little bit. My contractions came about every 10 minutes until about 8:00. That's when I called Jame to come back home and keep me company for a little while. He came, without the kids, at about 8:30. At that point my contractions were about every 5 minutes. I wasn't particularly worried, so we hung out at home for a little while. Finally, at around 9:00 I told Jame that we should probably go drop the kids' overnight bag off at the HawkInn and head to Powell. We stayed at the HawkInn until about 9:30, and I enjoyed making Tev nervous. I think that he didn't know whether to feel sorry for me because I was in pain or nervous because I was so quiet about my pain and perhaps I might just deliver right there on the kitchen floor :) We headed to Powell at about 10 and they made me walk around for about an hour. Dr. Bohlman was on call that weekend (even if he hadn't been, I would have called him to come in) and he got the the hospital at around 12:30. Addalyn was born at 12:52 am on January 8th, 2011. It took me a little longer to push her out than it did the other two, but I still didn't push for more than 20 minutes. I remember asking Jame on the way to the hospital why all of our babies had to make their appearance in the middle of the night? Addy is now 3 weeks old and she fits right into our family. There is no mistaking who she belongs to :) Anyway, since I'm now busy with school, 2 children and a newborn I will try to be more diligent in my posts, but I make no promises. My final thought would be how much things have changed since 3 months ago. We have been so blessed and things just continue to look bright. I feel so fortunate to have the life that I do.
