Addison Nicole


Baby Addie is here! Finally the long wait is over. On March 17 I woke early in the morning (at 5:00 am) with a bit of pain in my stomach and low back. By 7:00 am I knew I was having contractions, but they were not coming regularly yet so I wasn't sure if it was real or false labor. I called the hospital and my doctor to ask their advice and they told me that I should stay home and wait until they were 2-4 minutes apart.


By 10:30, my contractions were much more painful, but still irregular. Around 10:35, I was talking on the phone with my mom and my water BROKE! I called Ryan and he rushed home from work to take me to the hospital. I was in labor until 4:59, and then finally our sweet little Addison was born! We have a little St. Patrick's Day baby.


Addison is so sweet. She is such a cuddly little girl, and she loves being held. Surprisingly she has strawberry blond hair! She weighed 6 pounds, 14 ounces and was 20 inches long. We just love her!

What a beautiful baby girl Monica!! Congratulations. She's a doll!
Isn't she 3 weeks early?? She's still a good healthy size. Kinlee was 1.5 weeks over due and weighed about the same as Addie did.
Anyway Addie is a darling baby girl!
I hope you are feeling good too. Congrats to all three of you! Have fun and enjoy every single second they go by way too fast.

Thankyou! She was 3 weeks early...I'm so glad that she was though! We love her so much...I think we are becoming the obsessive new parents that used to bug me so much before haha.

I just saw a cousin of mine on my blog named her baby Addison Rose. Isn't that funny. She was just over 5 pounds. Two beautiful baby girls with beautiful names.
