Eden Poppy

My last post was of Scarlett, and this post is of Eden.. So I think it's safe to say I am not a good blogger or we should take a break from babies for a bit;) Eden joined our family Sunday August 12 at about 9:43am. Weighing 7 pounds 3 ounces and 20 1/2 inches long. She is the sweetest little thing and we love her so. I will get to posting her birth story soon. I figured I better update and add our little Eden to this blog. Here's to sweet little girls and better updating!

Baby Scarlett

Scarlett Ruby Hancock

This sweet little peanut joined our family on February 6, 2011. She weighed a mere 6 pounds 3 ounces, 18 inches long. Girly was sporting a full head of dark hair. I swore to Todd I was gonna have a ten pound baby, girly could kick! Now that she is 7 months, we know it completely fits her little personality...she is a mover and a shaker! Little birth story... Sunday morning Todd and I head to the hospital to be induced. I went on my own with Mykah but with Scarlett I was ready and my Dr was willing to induce. I took it! We get checked in and hooked up to the meds at about 8:30. Things began to progress really slow and at about 11 I was only at 5 cm. Well when our family gets to a six we are done:) So when the Dr thought I would be a while and left me at a 6. The nurse came back in and I "felt" the involuntary pushing and asked her to check...she wouldn't let me move and ran out to get the Dr. It was a little after 12 when he came in and two pushes later we got our sweet little girl. She has been a dream baby. Scarlett is so content and happy all the time, she is also an amazing sleeper...so nice! I love being a mom to these two sweet little girls and Todd is an amazing father and they completely adore him. It is definitely a condensed version but hey better late than never!

countdown to baby

Baby S,

Here are all our happenings for the past few days....... Your Sister has gotten very clingy these last few weeks to .... YOUR DADDY! I am sure you will adore him just as much as she does. Part of your unfinished room.... Your Sister was a big helper in fixing up your room. She was so excited to put your little diapers in the bin, and help paint :) (I borrowed things from sisters room for yours..I am not sure where we will be in a year and so I would rather fix up and decorate BOTH your rooms later when I know we will be somewhere more permanent!) haha

Whenever I feel like I am gonna be pregnant forever I sneak into your room and look at all your Girly things and get soooo excited....

Picture taken by your little sister I was ordered:'Mom, Look SURPRISED!' All the other pictures she took were of doors, walls and ceilings.....
As for other news we went to the Dr on Monday and I am dilated to 1cm and 70% effaced. Meaning well pretty much nothing! Monday night though the baby dropped a TON. It was pretty cool cause I never could tell with Mykah and with this baby I most definitely could feel her way lower. The Dr talked about inducing me on Feb 2ND. He said he was worried with us only being in the hospital 3 1/2 hrs before we had Mykah. At first I was against it but after thinking it over with Todd we both decided that it may be a good choice for us. Being that all our family is out of state and my body showing signs of labor we don't feel its going to put me or baby at risk.
If we were in AZ I would be saying 'no way' just an FYI.

(we weren't to worried about smiling as we were about keeping warm!)

We missed AZ temple lights this year, but I have ALWAYS loved the SLC temple. It is one of my faves! Living here has a few perks...eh? The night we went it was FREEZING! Like I think Utah was have record breaking lows...or it felt like it to me!! I am not sure I will ever get use to this cold!

Keeping it real with the messy Christmas morning house. Ah gotta love it! Opening her stocking, LOVE the face & sweet bedhead

Her "Santa" gift: A pink kitchen... She TOTALLY has loved that thing!
Last well actually first but who cares.. Roo and I sprinkling magic reindeer food in the lawn (aka oats with hairspray and glitter along with a dash of Christmas sprinkles. Lucky reindeer!) Also dont mind my chubby cheeks....This little girly is gonna be soooo worth it! But DO notice how my shoes are sinking into the snow BRRRR

Favorite part of the day: Roo in disbelief that Santa REALLY did eat the cookies and milk. Along with our yummy christmas day feast! That put all of us in a mad food coma! Merry Christmas

Wow! I cannot believe all the snow we have been pounded with...

Its madness!
Lots of snow outside means lots of mess inside. I will take heat over snow any day! Swimming does not lead to constant house cleaning, just pretty tanned skin. :) For now it is very pretty and makes Christmas feel that much more magical. This is the girly getting her 'snow' time so I am more sane and she gets worn out(fingers crossed) hopefully. Other than snow time we have well I have been nesting.. headband making, baby laundry doing, all sorts of getting ready for this girly stuff. Man oh man I forgot how good baby laundry smells. Oh and newborn diapers, really are they (the babes) that small??? EEEkk! Ahhhh makes me want her here now! (almost)If only I could finish her room up we would be ready. Guess its time to wrap up my projects and get ready for the best holiday ever...
P.S. snow makes for rad family night movies with hot coco
And FYI we got like a foot more of the powder this morning.....
