more maggie

Here are some more cute things that Maggie says:

"how this workint?" She says this if something isn't working, or if she can't figure it out.

"skirf" skirt

She sings "Don't cry for me..." to Evie Jane when she cries.

She likes to tell her little sister gonga (monkey) stories. They go like this "Once upon a time a little tiny gonga, and a little tiny gonga..."

"pee-cause" = because

2 week checkup

We had Evie Jane's 2 week (a little early) check up yesterday. She did great. Everything looked good and she is now up to 7 lb. 13 oz. Maggie came along and she was a little dream (which is not always the case).
Evie has been a good newborn, if you don't count the lack of sleep. She is starting to have more awake times, which is so fun. She likes to look around with little pursed lips ; she makes the sweetest, sleeping smiles, and sometimes awake smiles.
I love how soft her head is, and all the little squeaks and groans. I finally got used to changing her tiny diapers-it is harder than I remembered.

When we got home from the hospital Maggie was very excited and kept saying "welcome home, mama, welcome home Evie Jame!" (She says Jane with an m.)

the story of evie jane's entrance into the world

Ok, I thought I would write about Evelyn's birth before I forget the details. So here is the story...
I was a week and a few days past due, so we scheduled an induction for Sunday night (January 10th). All day Sunday I was having contractions. Once I started timing them they were about 5 minutes apart. So we got all our stuff packed up and headed in to the hospital for our induction.
We got there around 6:30 and I got hooked up to the iv for the antibiotics for being group b strep +. After the first round of antibiotics was finished I needed to get up and walk as the contractions were getting more and more uncomfortable. So since I was only dialated to 3 cm, we walked the halls. As we walked the contractions continued to get stronger and started to really hurt.
Back at our room I tried sitting on the birthing ball, not very helpful at that point. Since I thought I had the whole night ahead of me I decided to go for a little nubaine. All it did was make me woozy for a few minutes. Shortly after that things got intense.
My water broke at 10:30 pm. When the nurse checked me she asked if Iwas ready to have a baby. I think I said "are you serious?". She was.
The nurses and resident all came in and they paged the on call dr (he didn't make it on time).
I asked if it was too late for an epidural. It was. So I started pushing. I had great nurses and a wonderful husband to help guide me through, and keep me calm. Evie Jane was born at 10:40.
So there is the story of my 2nd little girl's birth. It was fast and recovery has been easy. Now we just need to get Evie to sleep at night and be awake during the day...

Evelyn Jane Creason

Born (very quickly) on 1/10/10
7 lbs 8 oz
21 inches
We are doing great and will hopefully be heading home today/tonight.
Little Evie Jane is a good eater, and has had some good happy alert time.
Maggie loves baby sister and is always wanting to hold her. So far she has been gentle...
Will try to get some more pictures up, but I had to show how cute and round the newest Creason is.
