Happy Wednesday!

It's been a little over a week since I last blogged... Things at the Sager house have been really pretty calm... thank goodness :) 

I can't believe it's already February!!! Our little girl is almost 2 months old! Craziness!!! Valentines Day is right around the corner... Nick told me not to worry that he had everything under control... hahaha so I'm excited to see what he has planned :)

We've been trying to figure out when we are going to be able to make it back to Texas... I may get back at the end of March while Nick is at a dental conference in Atlanta... but I need to find a reasonable plane ticket.  We are going to try and make a family trip in May- fingers crossed.

Here are some pictures of our love::

Tummy time!

Smiles for Daddy

OOOH I almost forgot some exciting news!! Our oldest child (Zizou) had an exciting Saturday... He had his first teeth cleaning!!! Here's a picture of his pearly whites.

Hope everyone is having a fabulous week!

Our Big Girl

Now, I know that I'm going to be a little partial when it comes to my daughter... but I must say I think she's pretty stinking intelligent :) Here are two videos of Addelyn ROLLING OVER at only 4 weeks!!! She can roll from her belly to her back, both to the right and the left.

We are so proud of our baby girl... I cannot believe that she is SIX weeks old... Time is flying by. 

Hope everyone's week is off to a great start :)

Addie's first soccer game!

Nick has joined a local soccer team here in Fort Walton Beach.  They usually meet up and play on Sundays.  I have always enjoyed watching him play... and try to never miss a game :) Well, today Miss Addelyn got to go and see her daddy play for the first time! We had a great time and of course he played really well.  Here's a pic of us at the game...

Hope everyone has enjoyed their weekend! I'm going to post some exciting videos tomorrow.. stay tuned!

Happy Pants

Our sweet baby girl woke up Friday morning with joy in her heart... She woke up and was just cackling away with the biggest smile on her face.  I was brushing my teeth when I first heard her... honestly I thought she was a little constipated..hah.. until I looked at her face and noticed the glowing smile she had. I started blowing on her tummy and the laughs just kept coming :) Here are some pictures

So sweet.

You can almost hear her laughing in the picture.. haha.

"Mom, why'd you stop?"

It's hard work being this adorable.

I can't believe Addelyn is going to be 6 weeks old tomorrow... where is the time going?! 

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!!

December 11, 2011

Let me start by saying Nick and I never ever thought we would make it to December with Miss Addelyn... We just knew she was coming early.  I say that because: A. I was gigantic.

 B. I started having contractions at 32 weeks... consistent ones at that.  C. The doctors were adamant about me being on bed rest until I reached 37 weeks because they were certain she was going to be making her appearance soon! Well, let me just tell you... Addelyn is as stubborn as her mommy and proved that we are all on her time :) So 37 weeks came and went and she was still nestled inside with no plans to make her appearance any time soon.  We ended up getting an induction date of December 14... so I got on the phone and called K-pa (my dad, Kevin) and Lulu (my mom, Jamie) so they could plan on being here! So the weekend of December 11 Nick and I decided that we needed to get on the ball and get our guest room ready since we'd have company that next week.  Saturday morning I woke up ready to dominate my large to-do list (mattress shopping, Christmas shopping, and grocery store)... just as soon as I got my breakfast. I walked into the kitchen and made toast with nutellla and bananas... carried it to the couch... quickly devoured it (I woke up starving almost everyday... hence me being gigantic :) I just needed to get dressed and then we'd be off.  I stood up and my water broke.  Now to be honest, I had a history of "my water breaking"... which up until this point obviously wasn't amniotic fluid.  So I just figured I had peed my pants again and rushed to the bathroom hoping Nick didn't see/notice my accident... ha.  But sure enough it was most definitely my water... I'll never forget what happened next.  I called out to Nick who was still in the living room... "Nick, my water broke." I mean you'd think Sonic the Hedgehog was in my house.... that boy went into super dad mode.  He was cleaning, packing, eating... all at once.. it was adorable... All while I decided to shower. ha.

We got to the hospital and I thought things were going to go pretty fast... WRONG.  My water broke at 9:20 a.m. on Saturday, December 10... one day after Addelyn's original due date. I was admitted around 10:30 and received my epidural a little after 2.  I was surprisingly comfortable up until I RECEIVED my epidural.. the nurse came in and told me that I had dilated enough to get one and I said that I was really okay (I knew I was going to get one but I thought I'd be in screaming pain before I got the epidural.. and I was far from that)... but I ended up getting it anyway.  Well, it only worked on my right side... and as soon as I realized that my left side wasn't taking to the medicine... the contractions started getting INTENSE.  Finally the anesthesiology came back in and fixed the epidural... thank goodness.  I got some really good rest after that. I labored until 1 a.m. Sunday morning and then the nurse finally came in and said that it was time to start pushing.  Well, Nick had called my dad, Leni and Alex in Texas when my water broke Saturday morning and they got in the car and left right away.... by the time I was ready to push they had just arrived.  Nick told them that I was getting ready to push and Addelyn should be here shortly.  They waited in the waiting room. The nurse was certain we'd have a baby by 2 a.m. at the latest.  Well, let me just tell you, she lied.  After 21 hours and FIVE (5) HOURS OF PUSHING... we had our gorgeous baby girl.  Five hours may seem super extreme.. and it is but Addie was sunny-side up (face up instead of face down) and she was a BIG baby. Right before I delivered the doctor came and felt around my belly and predicted her to be in the high 7's... she said I had a lot of fluid... I thought she'd be at least 8 pounds... but that little booger was a whopping 9.6 pounds!!!

Everyone was completely surprised... especially me.  So that is the long story of Miss Addelyn Kate's birth... here's a few pictures of our love...

Here we go...

Life with mommy, daddy and Addie... I'm starting this blog to record some of the craziness that we experience here in the Sager household.  I'm excited to finally start blogging again; even though a certain someone has been hounding me to start for a while.. uhhmmm Kendel :) I've been a little busy! 

We welcomed the love of our lives on December 11, 2011.  Addelyn Kate weighed a surprising 9.6 lbs and was 19.75 long.  

This little bundle of joy is captivating every second of my day and I couldn't be happier. I promise to give you the low down on Miss Addie's birth story tomorrow but until then I'll leave you today with one more picture of our sweetpea... 

Hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!
