My favorite time of the year!

I absolutely LOVE fall. I love opening the windows and burning candles and watching the leaves fall. I couldn't think of any other place I would rather be right now, just tucked away at our little home in the mountains. that sounded really cheesy. But its amazing how when you get older, you don't take anything for granted. I feel like the world has passed me by the past few months....I feel like I haven't gotten out much. But thats ok, I have been right where I need to be....with my precious little girl. She has grown so much, right before our eyes! She is eating baby food and LOVING it! I must say, that her chubby thighs aren't going anywhere anytime soon! :-) She has one little tooth on the bottom and has another one coming in. We are having her fall/6 month pictures taken next week and I will post them as soon as I can! I am excited, I hope they turn out good! AND last but not least....she is saying 'dada' and it is SO stinkin' cute! I could just squeeze her!

Need some tips....

So, I am stealing this idea from Micah...I need some tips from all the mommy's (and wives)that are following my blog.....

1) How on earth do you keep your house clean...or do you? I mean I am working full-time and can't seem to get ANYTHING done! I try to spend my time with Aniston and then clean the house after she goes to bed...but then I am So tired! Ofcourse if I didn't spend so much freakin' time on Facebook, things might be different. I think I am in need of a Facebook detox program. Anyway, so your husband's help you? Do you have some sort of routine? I have never been a neat freak, but I have totally let it go and its driving me crazy!

2) We need some serious teething tips!! We have Sophie, which she loves, but she only seems to be bothered at night. We have tried Oragel, Motrin and Tylenol. She went from sleeping 10-12 hours at night....and last night she woke up 7 times(I was at work)!!! If my poor husband had hair...he would have pulled it out. It was horrible! She will be 6 months old on Oct 10th and is on her 2nd tooth :-(

Thats all I can think of for now....because I ofcourse I need to go clean the house since our new babysitter is coming over tomorrow!

Its been a while.....

So I am finally updating my blog....after 4 months! LOL And since pretty much everyone follows me on Facebook, I am not going to try and catch up. I spend enough time on Facebook, I don't know why I haven't gotten into blogging. Just something else to be addicted to! But here goes, I PROMISE I will keep it updated! :-)

Day 2 in the hospital....

Miss Aniston was a very popular young lady on her birthday....she had lots of visitors! Both sets of grandparents, Aunt Haley, and Jennifer were there to meet her that morning!!! Then several people came by to see her later in the day. We are so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends that care so much for our precious little girl!

The day our lives changed forever....

With a due date of April 6th, no one seemed to think that I would quite make it that far. I started dilating at 36 weeks, and progressed every week...up until the week of my due date. I was 4 cm and 70% effaced for over a week, and ended up going in for induction on April 9th. Ugh, and was it ever an experience!!! The day started out great, pitocin was started, and I got my epidural....and then we waited.

I didn't make any progress until about 5 in the evening, (we went in at 6am), and then things moved very quickly! I started pushing at about 9:30pm, until my hubby's truck got hit in the parking lot!!! Of all things!!!! Anyway, so once that was taken care of, my Doctor came just in time for my epidural to quit working.....another big UGH. We had to call the poor little Anethisia guy back in...(which I feel kinda bad now because I don't think I was very nice to him!! lol)....and he had to give me more medicine in it....and that didn't work either!!! He eventually gave me something to take SOME of the pain away....and Aniston made her appearance a couple hours later!! (yes I said a couple HOURS...of PUSHING!!!) Aniston Michelle Underwood
