I thought I would take a sec and brag myself up a little. This Picture was taken at 3:47 am right after Rowyn was born. Labor was crazy. 10 minutes of pushing that was it. 2:30 was the first contraction and we got to the Hospital at 3:30 and she was born at 3:47. We are booking a room in advance next time. We are glad she is here. No that is something. Molly, my friend once told me they don't give awards to women who do it naturally. Oh but you get to brag about it and that is almost as good. Plus you can tell your kids how much pain you suffered to bring them into the world. And my favorite.... you get to walk into the bathroom and take a long hot shower right after you give birth. That is the gold at the end of the rainbow... oh yeah and you get the most beautiful little girl, a gift straight from heaven. I am just glad she is healthy, drugs or no drugs. If it had been longer than the hour I was in labor I don't know that I could have done it without a few shots of something. So perhaps the Lord knew that. Anyway we are glad Rowyn Quinn is here.

back to normal....kinda

Hurray!! My hubby is home and the kids are great. I have pictures for everyone to see. I am such a proud mommy. These are when we first brought Rowyn home. So I need to get updated ones cuz she is smiling now instead of her little frowny grimace. I need to claim one of Mark's camera's for my own so I can capture her best moments.

Almost there,

Hurray!!! 3 more days till Mark comes home. wow!! I think we have watched every single corny musical made. I was getting so tired of watching Disney animation so we started singing and dancing 1950-60's cheese. Sydney loves Bing Crosby and Gene Kelly. A girl after my own heart. So I need a shower. Single parenting is insane. So power to you all who do it full time. I think you all need a metal of honor. All is well with us. :0 Yawn. Time for a nap.

I love babies. It has been quite the experience to have 2 beautiful crazy girls in our home. Especially since Mark is out of town. I didn't realize how much he did for us. That is why there aren't any pics on the site. He is gone. My picture guru is gone. Oh well he will be back soon and then you can all see our beautys. I have been having fun with these new hair sites for kids. Sydney gets a new one everyday. We both love it and it is a good mother daughter bonding time for us. :) So thanks to my wonderful friends Monica and Jalee for sending me sites. I will have to post pictures. Ok. Well that is all I have time for. Babes are calling and milk is coming in. ouch. tooodalooo.
