Scary Paper

I noticed a few days ago that kyleigh doesn't like the sound of crinkling paper. She shouts every time she hears it! We're trying to get her over this fear because i can't take her to the grocery store without her shouting out when they bag our groceries! Anyways, this is a video of her doing it when i was unwrapping decorations i bought for our house. scott caught it all and then we tried holding her to see if that would help her not be scared. not so much!

"Welcome to Tennessee...the patron state of shootin' stuff!"

New, new, new…this has been the story of our lives since my last post! After much prayer, Scott and I decided that we were going to move back to Jackson, TN! Jackson is where we met two years ago! I feel like we have move all over since we’ve been together! Jackson, Orlando, Kansas, and back to Jackson! Let’s just say we’ve become experts in the packing department! While we lived in Kansas we drove the 7 hours to Jackson quite a few times looking at houses! The 3rd week in June we looked at a beautiful, 3b/2b brick house that was built in Feb…it was perfect! We both fell in love with it. We decided to make our offer and prayed they wouldn’t accept unless this was the house for us! When they accepted our offer I was ecstatic!  We moved into our new home july 3rd! I feel so blessed to have a beautiful house and a place to call home for a WHILE!  Kyleigh has her own room and friends call our house the “open house!” We always have people over for dinner and LOVE it! I am really enjoying my new role as home making/hostess! Sometimes I get stressed about having the house perfect (I get that from my motherJ.) However, lately I’ve learned that people know we live here, so why should I try to make it look like no one does?!? 

Kyleigh is an absolute doll!! She is the world’s best baby! She is so expressive and is becoming more independent everyday! Our living room is full of colorful toy and gadgets! Our latest addition is a jumperoo! She LOVES it! It sings a little ditty when she bounces and she can grab and spin everything on it now! I can’t believe how fast the time goes! Here’s the best part about her growing up…..She sleeps 12 HOURS A NIGHT!!! I’m now lying! SCHEDULING ROCKS!! She goes to bed at 8pm and doesn’t wake up till 8am! Every blue moon, she’ll wake up at 6 or 7 but still!! I LOVE IT! I’ve even got a video monitor so I can watch her put herself to sleep! I told you she was the best baby!  Well anyways, Scott and started school fulltime again(yay) and I’m waiting to hear if I got into the nursing program this Jan! Here are some cute pictures of our sweet sweet baby girl!

Two months old already!?!

               TWO MONTHS OLD!!

Where does the time go?!? During my pregnancy, I felt like time was CRAWLING...I could never seem to get the days to go by fast enough! It was the LONGEST 37 weeks of my life(so far.) Today, I feel like the days just fly! I'm feel a lot busier now that Kyleigh is here, yet some days I don't accomplish  anything! I can't believe she is already two months old! It has been the hardest, most rewarding two months of my life! I absolutely LOVE being a mother and I've been blessed with the most wonderful daughter in the world! She has just learned to smile and giggle a little. Scott, being the playful dad, figured out that she loves it when we stick our tongues out at her. She even does it back to us...yes, we are teaching our sweet little girl that it is ok to stick her tongue out at people! :) I couldn't stop laughing yesterday when i noticed Kyleigh sticking her tongue out at the animals on her mobile! I'm sure she was quite disappointed when they didn't play along! 

           She gets so excited when we stick our tongues out at her

                      Concentrating so hard

                                  "I did it mom!"

Recovery Report!

I finally saw my doctor this past thursday and I'm happy to report that my infection is gone!!! This is such an answer to prayer!!! I don't know what i would've done if they would have cut me open again! Since I'm almost FINALLY recovered Kyleigh and I are coming FLORIDA TOMORROW!!! Sadly scott has to work and won't be joining us for this trip! Other than missing my sweetheart...I'm so excited for kyleigh to meet all of you in fl!! I've told her all about you! :) My mom is beside herself with excitement! I asked her if she could take care of her one night while i'm home so i can sleep for more than 3 hours at a time and she happily agreed! YAY!!! :) I can't wait for Kyleigh to meet her great-great grandmother (Dede) and her great grandmother (nana)! Kyleigh is almost 6 weeks old and it's about time she met them! :) I miss all my family and friends and will be so excited to be reunited with them for a few days!

Please pray for my recovery!

On the afternoon of april 30, I started having some contractions. Nothing to be concerned about so you can imagine my surprise when my water broke at 6:45 p.m. Thankfully, scott and I have just walked in the door to our apartment from a trip to babies r' us. We called my doctor, finished packing our suitcase and left for the hospital. We hadn't had a chance to eat dinner and we were both starving. I knew i couldn't eat once i was in the hospital so we decided to stop for a quick bite. scott didn't want to take too long so he just stopped at a gas station for some snacks. I told him to just pick something for me. He went in and came out with 20 dollars worth of drinks and snacks!! this made me laugh! We obviously didn't think things through and by the time we got to the hospital my pants were SOAKED! I checked in at 8:45 and was only 3 cm dilated so we settled in for a long night. After a few laps around the hospital I was ready for the epidural and finally got it at 3 am! I was only 5 cm so they told us to try and get some sleep. At around 6 am my nurse and a few others woke me up to move me on my side. Apparently, Kyleigh's heart beat was dropping really low with each contraction and they thought she might be on the umbilical cord. This went on till about 7:15 and then the doctor on call came in to tell us that they were going to do a c-section. I was 7 cm and she was worried kyleigh was in too much distress. We were in the operating room 45 minutes later. weighing in at 6lbs. 13 oz and 18 in long... kyleigh kate wohlers was born at 8:11 am on may 1, 2009!! My recovery from the surgery has not been easy. After i left the hospital I developed an infection in my incision. My doctor put me on some antibiotic and i thought things were getting better. At my appt a week later my doc said that if i didn't get better soon she would have to open my incision up again and let it heal from the inside out. She said this is a painful operation and would prolong my recovery by 6 weeks!! I am asking you for your prayers right now! I can't imagine having to start all over again while having a newborn at home! I am on a new antibiotic and go see my doctor this thursday to find out what she is going to do. I know that the Lord is in control and His will is perfect! I greatly appreciate all who will and are already praying for me! I will keep you updated when i know more! I love you all!

Kyleigh Kate

I CANNOT believe that Kyleigh is 3 weeks old already!! She has grown SO much! When we left the hospital she was 6lbs 8oz and at her doctor's appt a week ago she was 7lbs 13oz! I think we're gonna have a little chub on our hands! She is getting stronger everyday! she can hold her head up and opening her eyes all the time now! She had her days and nights mixed up and was keeping us awake all night but i think she's almost got back to normal now. one time she slept for 4 HOURS in between feedings! What a nice treat for mommy and daddy! :) She poops at least 8 times a day so we are thankful that she LOVES her bath time! My family came and stayed with me for two weeks after she was born. My mom for the first (dad, jen, and jerre came for a few days while mom was here) and rachel for the second week. They were such life savers! My recovery has not been easy and i don't think scott and I would have survived without them for those first two weeks! I LOVEd having them here and miss them terribly! There is no doubt that Kyleigh will be the most spoiled girl in the world! Well, here are some pictures from the last couple of weeks!
                First Bath at home! 
             Rachel dressed her up like a boxer! 
                       She LOVES aunt rae rae

            I went to the bathroom after her feeding and came back to find this...PRICELESS!
