Just For Fun

He has the juiciest lips I've ever seen on a baby :-)

These are Kaeson's newborn photos. We had them done when he was a week old, and lemme tell ya, it's quite the experience! He decided he wanted to pee and poop at least 3 times, on me, his dad, and the photographer, Heather. No worries, though, she's a friend, and was a good sport about all of it! And I don't say this just because she's a friend, but I'd recommend her to anyone!

And then here are some of me throughout the pregnancy, and at the American Fork Hospital.

More from Kaeson

Same day, new post....Just to update, and an excuse to show more of my sweet baby boy.

At his 2 week appointment he was already 9 pounds and 2 ounces, and 22 inches long! We also took him in at 3 weeks, since he was starting to get a nasty cold, and being the paranoid new mom I am, he HAD to see a doctor. Long story short, at THAT appointment, he was already 10 pounds 11 ounces. Growing like a weed. I LOVE chubby babies.
Since I'm blogging, I may as well go all out on this...There are some family members who have yet to meet Kaeson, considering they are on a whole other continent, this might prove to be very difficult. So, I am going to tell all about this sweet kid we've brought into our lives.
Kaeson is just the best baby! He doesn't cry much, and he loves to snuggle. Lucky for me, because that's all I asked for in my baby, that, and a head of hair, which I was also very lucky to get! He sleeps almost through the night, only waking up 2 or 3 times to eat. Kaeson LOVES his monkey bouncer, but only when it's on vibrate. For the most part he likes to be held when he's sleeping, so he's yet to spend a night in his crib. And that has nothing to do with the fact that I hate to take my eyes off of him for even a second :-). He's become very alert already, and fights taking his naps like crazy. Lucky mommy, gets to listen to him whine for a half hour before he'll give in.
Well, that's about the gist of it, not much else goes on with a newborn. More to come!

We've Decided To Blog!

Yup, we've decided to start blogging! And by we, I of course mean, just me. :-) Since our family has started to grow, we finally have things to say. Naturally, I'm going to start with the newest addition to our little family...Kaeson!

Kaeson Jamie Anton was born June 22nd, 2010 (yes, he is already a month old!), and weighed in at 8 pounds 9 ounces, and 20 inches long...He was 4 days early, luckily I was induced, 4 days to a pregnant woman is like a lifetime, so I can only imagine how big he would have been if he had been born on his due date, the 26th.

He was very stubborn, I don't have to wonder where he got that trait from, and didn't want to come out earlier than the induction date, no matter what I did. We tried EVERYTHING, walking, jogging, climbing a steep hill, spicy food, we went swinging and swimming, the only thing I wouldn't try was castor oil. He kept me dialated at a 6 for over a week! So luckily by the time we got to the hospital I didn't have far to go. 5 hours of labor, 12 minutes of pushing, and here was our beautiful baby boy!

Naturally I cried, and not surprisingly the proud daddy cried too. I don't know how many know, but for Jamie and I this is our second son, after a stillbirth in February 3 years ago. So the tears were well earned. It took over a year and a half for me to get pregnant, but it was so worth it. Not that we're planning on doing it again anytime soon. Congratulations to us :-)
