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 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.
