Merry Christmas From the Jutras Family

So I had Lily get her picture done with Santa on the 16th of November so we would not end up waiting in line forever. She wasnt sure what to think of him. She didnt smile,or laugh or cry. She just put on her serious face.

Dan went with his sister Michelle to cut down our tree, his parents tree and also my parents tree. I really need to go with him one of these years to do it.

Happy Halloween

So our week was spent at home. Since Lilyanne and I were feeling under the weather. Halloween Lilyanne did not even get to Grandma & Grandpas house to show off her costume. We will have to do that this next week. The good news is we are starting to feel better. First I want to share a picture of Dan and Lilyanne that I took before going to a wedding on October 24th. Last night we handed out candy and watched Charlotte's Web. Lilyanne was an adorable Ladybug.

Our trip to Portland,OR

Lilyanne and I are visiting my sister and her family in Portland,OR. We are having a wonderful time. I always enjoy it here when I come. Heather and I have even managed to make it to a quilt shop and squeeze in some sewing. Yesterday we made it a girls day and headed to Cannon Beach and Seaside the weather was perfect for soaking up some sun. Dan sent me a text telling me it was snowing at home.

Jessie and my sister keep fighting over who gets to hold Lilyanne.

Spending Time with Friends & Some Tummy Time

So today we spent some time with Kim, Joanna and Leah (Kim's niece). Kim's daughter is 8 1/2 hours older than Lilyanne and the girls were even born at the same hospital. Today was the first time we have layed them next to each other. It was neat to see how different they are. The girls are so adorable so here are some pictures. We also went shopping at Extreme Bargains and Hobby Lobby.

Lilyanne has recently found her fist and fingers. She is more interested in them then playing while on her tummy or her swing.

Let Play Catch Up

July 4th
We went on a short hike around Garden of the Gods. It was a rainey day. But that evening we did get to light fireworks at Chris and Julia's house since the dont live in the county. The weather was cool so Lilyanne got to hang out in the garage all bundled up.

July 6th just hanging out at home.

July 16th we went to the zoo with Paula,Lexi ,and Carissa.

July 18th before heading to some garage sales.

July 19th she was taking a Sunday nap in her crib with her lamb while sporting a Bum Genius cloth diaper. But I caught some moments of her waking up.

Sorry it took so long for me to finally post this.

Lilyanne Nicole
Born May 3,2009
at 4:21 am
19 1/2 inches Tall
6 lbs. 2 oz.

On Wednesday April 29th I went into my doctors appointment. I was told that I was 4 cm dialted and 90% effaced. I was feeling great and not having any labor signs. For some reason after my appointment that day my contractions started coming but were far apart.

Then my due date April 30th I decided to play it safe and hang out at home. I was so bored being stuck at home. Just waiting for our sweet little girl to make her arrival. When Dan got home from work we went to the mall and took a stroll around it.

Friday I could not just hang out at home. So I went to garage sales. My friend Charlotte and her mom were going. So I just followed them place to place. The kept an eye on me and could call Dan if it was time to have the baby. Really it was nice getting out of the house and looking for deals.

On Saturday night I layed down at 9:00 and by 11:00 the contractions were getting closer together. So we decided that it was time to get ready to goto the hospital. When we went we thought that I would probaly end up going back home. Well at about 11:30 we got to triage. They hooked me up to monitor my contractions and listen to her heart beat. I was only 4 1/2 cm dialted. They had me get up and walk around the hospital. Which didn't work for me I was in so much pain. They admited me into the hospital and gave Dr. Kort a call since Dr. Trujillo was off and they told me that they couldn't get a hold of him. I tried taking a bath to help me relax. Well it didn't help at all. Then I got hooked up to the IV which took forever to drain. I was in pain and wanted the epidural. Once I got it I was relaxed. The nurse was like "your having a contraction right now." I honestly didn't even know it. I was checked and was 6 cm dialted. The nurse came back awhile later and I was 9 3/4 cm dialted. That meant it was show time. We did some practice pushes. Then Dr. Kort came in and instructed me on what to do. After about 30 min or so of pushing Lilyanne Nicole entered this world on Sunday May 3,2009 at 4:21 am.

She is truely a little miracle. Holding her in my arms for the first time was such a wonderful moment. Also looking over at my husband and seeing how he took the moment in. I love being a mom!

36 Weeks and 6 Days

Wow we are already into the month of April. Sunday we had the opportunity to take the hospital tour. It was nice so we know where to go when this baby girl plans on making her arrival. Also nice to see what the rooms look like and really learn of somethings of what to expect. Things are right on schedule. Today she measured 36 inches and her heartbeat was 160 bpm. I am feeling good and some days I get stuff done and some I don't. I put my guess at April 14th of when she will be born. I am thinking she will be here closer to her due date or even after. But who knows she really could come any day now. We are excited and cant't wait to meet her. My inlaws are calling her Nickalina Daniella. Wonder if it will fit her. Just kidding!

I also have some wonderful news in the braces deparment. I am supposed to get them off next Tuesday the 14th. See I knew the 14th of April was going to be a great day for me. I had them put on August 22,2007. I am so happy to see my brand new smile. They have been a pain but so worth it on so many levels. I will have to post some before and after pictures.

Love It

So my sister finished up baby girls quilt. I absolutely love it. I am crossing my fingers that I get it in the mail sometime this week. My niece Jessie keeps stealing it and was even caught sleeping with it.
