One month old

Weeks following Kaden's birth.

So far three has not been so bad. EXCEPT, Syd was sick the day I went into the hospital, we came home and Kenners was deathly sick, she didn't even try to see the baby. She slept, laid, threw up, and slept some more. Lots of sickness. Don't worry, it only took K four days to get over it and then I got the Flu, four more days of yuck! It stinks to be sick and worry about a brand new baby, but he stayed safe and sick free!

Julie came over to help out, she even took my sick kids to give me a break, THANKS SO MUCH!

Grandma and Grandpa came over, we see them quite a bit and the kids always love it!

Syd and Kenners love the baby and are great helpers (Syd helps, Kenady tried and usually ends up sitting on him, smashing him, something like that...she sure loves him).

And they spent a lot of time with their Dad, thanks Dallas.

Kaden had his first bath, he loved the water.

and Kenady insisted on giving her dog to him, he really seemed to like it! :) What a nice girl.

Kaden Calvin Davis

This could be long, and we don't have a lot of pictures. What kind of parents are we? O.K. ready! I went into my 36 week apnt expecting nothing, NOTHING! and I leave at a 4, 75% effaced, and station -1, whatever that means. They told me that I would go fast, so fast that if I felt contractions 5 min apart, even if they didn't hurt go to the hospital. They said if I felt pressure for more then 30 min, go to the hospital, just go! Well okay. So I went shopping and I felt contractions every 3-5 min the whole hour and pressure, yeah it was there. I called Dallas and he said to come to his office and sit for awhile and see what happens. So that I did.

While sitting they went from 5 to 7 min apart. The last 30 min I was trying to see about the other two girls so I was on my feet a lot and the contractions were every 3 so to the hospital we went. They checked me in the nurse said, wow looks like you won't be going anywhere. They were trying to stop me and there I sat for 5 hours until they finally sent me home. NOTHING!

Well we got AFLAC insurance with this baby in hope we would get some money back. But I had to go until April 21st to get that money. That was three more weeks. Shucks, could I make it that long!

The next week I went into my appointment and I was at a 5 and 85% effaced still -1. Then the next week still at a 5 and 85% effaced. Every time they said you aren't going to last more then a few days. What the world.

Finally April 15, tax day, I woke up from a dream and I was giving my belly away because it hurt. Well when I woke up it still hurt, I sat there for 15 more min and told Dallas today is the day. I hopped in the shower, dropped the girls off at a Friends and to the hospital we went. I got all checked in and guess what, I was at a 5 and 85% effaced. Are you kidding me. The last time I am listening to those Doctors. I should have waited, not gone right in :)! They told me they couldn't admit me until there was a change and they would check me in two hours (2 hours I could have him by then). I was hurting but I tried to be brave. The pains got consistently worse (of course) the contractions were every three minutes apart and I didn't get much relief between them. I couldn't talk to Dallas and I didn't want anyone to talk to me. The nurse told me to get up and walk around and again, are you kidding. I tried threw up all over the place, ran to the bathroom to try to make it an easier clean up, leaned over between a contraction and the nurse went crazy! She thought I was trying to have Kaden in the bathroom! I just needed some relief. After all that she decided to check me before the two hour time frame. Lo and behold I was at a 6....wait once more are you kidding barely a 6 with all this! So she started the paperwork to admit me. I really wanted an epidural, she said as soon as she did the i.v. she would call. After an eternity (10 min) I was all set. She checked me again. I was at an 8, she called Dr. Connolley and requested the epidural. Dr. Connelly told the nurse, not to be so dramatic but he was coming over and 5 min later he was there. He said, "if you feel like you need to push, let me know." I said I do. So he checked and I was @ a 10! No epidural for me. 5 minutes and 1 push later Kaden Calvin Davis was born. He weighed 8 lb and 21 inches long. He was born at 9:31 a.m.


We had a lot of fun this Easter. It was great to be in a new house, which we love, love, love. Especially me. It is an old adobe house, the kitchen is orange and yellow and it is perfect. Lots of space for the kids to play and room for all our hobbies! I am so glad our neighbor let us rent!
The Friday before Easter their was a big Easter egg hunt at the golf course. Syd and Kenners were so excited. They could hardly wait. We rushed up as fast as we could. Their were gazillions of eggs everywhere. Their little eyes lit up! The gun shot and off they went. With Syd's help and prodding her and Kenners got lots of eggs. Then it was off to "fish" for some candy. We sat down to watch other people fish and Syd asked if she could have an egg. She opened the first one with a sour look on her face, she could harldy touch the egg and she said "Mom, something is wrong." She then began to open another egg. Same thing happened. "Ewe, mom these are all the same. This time she tried to put it in her mouth and she said, "squishy, yuck"!

She opened every single egg and realized that there was no candy in these eggs. They were ALL boiled. I don't know who took the time, that was LOTS of work!

Kenady on the other hand LOVED the eggs. She did not eat them but she thought they were great bouncy balls! Funny kids!

Saturday was a lot of fun. I suppose I was pregnant enough and people were nice enough to come here. It was a cold day. But still fun. We had my Dad, Shanda and Jas, Robbie and Calvin and the kids. We did a B-B-Que, then an Easter egg hunt and some talking. Our plumbing broke under the sink so that put the party to a halt but it was lots of fun. I kinda liked hosting!

And last was Easter Sunday. The kids wanted to leave something for the Easter Bunny so we stuck a carrot out on a plate. That morning the Bunny had hidden their baskets, they loved finding them but I think they were most amazed at the silly rabbit, who only ate half the carrot! (They got so much from their grandparents the day before, they didn't need anything).

Finally don't they look cute. This year we didn't get Easter dresses for them, we just worked with what we had...but they did get hair bows, does that count :) Happy Easter!
