She's Here!

Kenzie Marie Cook was born at 8:38pm on Tuesday, Januaury 27th. She was a perfect 7 pounds 11 ounzes, 21 inches long, and pretty much the cutest baby girl EVER :) but don't worry we are not biased AT ALL...We are home and doing pretty well. We are enjoying our little Kenzie and the sweet spirit she is already bringing to our little apartment.

We went to the hospital on Tuesday morning and our doctor asked if we wanted to have the baby that could we say no...that evening we had our first addition to our family. After the doctor broke my water and my contractions were actually progressing and getting HARDER I was more than willing to get the epideral...needless to say I was glad I did AND at least I know what contractions feel like (that's enough for me).

The doctor laid our baby on my stomach right afterwards while they were finishing up, I totally said that she was "really big!" and Derek got to cut the umbilical cord. I asked for a mirror to watch everything and Derek was brave and watched everything too. After it was all said and done that was probably the coolest thing that I have ever seen...and I think Derek agree's it was pretty cool.

Now that we are home we are able to relax and enjoy our little Kenzie. She loves laying on her Daddy's tummy for her tummy time and just sleeping by him on the couch while he plays Lego Star Wars. I am enjoying playing dress up...more than Kenzie enjoy's it :) Derek and I are going to give her her first bath tomorrow we will see how that goes, Derek gets to teach me because he got to watch the nurses clean her up while...

Everyday will bring new and exciting adventures. More updates and stories to come...

Picture Tag

Lindsey Tagged me so here we go!

The rules are you post the 4th picture of the 4th folder, 8th picture in the 8th folder, 12th picture in the 12th folder and the 16th picture in the 16th folder. Then tag others to do the same.

4th in 4th

This obviously was taken before Logan was on his mission. We all tried on sunglasses while we were in Pocatello and my roommate Alyssa took this picture. I can't remember the exact reason we were in Pocatello but we were :) This was taken on Derek's old cell phone.

8th in 8th

Another cell phone picture :) This is Derek and Matt Day standing underneath the dump bucket of e-coli :) After this "FUN" day of playing at the splash park in Rexburg, Idaho we all got really really sick. I will spare the details.

12th in 12th

This is before Derek and I had even met! He is "rebuilding" and fixing his mustang that he drives even though we like his car, the conditions in Rexburg are not suitable for a mustang.

16th in 16th

This was when Derek and I were engaged. We wanted winter pictures and eventually ended up standing in a frozen over river, which we had to break the ice first. But we are just "dancing" on a frozen pond or something. It was really the end result made for some pretty sweet pictures!

People I tag: Monica, Rebecca, Mom, and Brittany Cook

For Christmas I got a it is totally awesome...I started making some cards and just trying it all out I am really excited to be making such "professional" looking cards. I mostly wanted my mom to see them so I figured i would just scan them in :) Hope you like them.
