Easter 2011

We had an Easter Egg hunt at my parents house the day before Easter. MaKenna loved running and getting as many eggs as she could. Her cousin Kai was so sweet and would put eggs in her bucket if it was a girl color. It was fun seeing all the cousins having a good time together.

This is Easter morning and boy was Makie excited!! She loved that she got Despicable Me! She loves that movie. She also got a lot of other fun coloring books and a darling swimsuit that I can't wait to put on her. This year I also told her why we really celebrate Easter. Don't think it made much sense to her but next year I am sure it will.
I didnt take any pictures of Lincoln but he got an Easter basket as well.

One week pictures

A friend of ours gave me a infant photo shoot as a baby shower gift for Lincoln. She came and took them in our house when he was a week old. The funny thing is that the whole time he was wide awake! But he was a good boy and let us try to position him and only cried a few times. Here are a few photos of his little photo shoot.
Thanks Heather Telford for these amazing pictures. You really are talented!

I do have to say that I have a very handsome baby!

Happy Birthday Lincoln John Neal

I will share with you the lovely story of Lincoln's delivery.
I go in for my regular 38 week check up on April 4, 2011 and guess what? Just like Makie, my blood pressure is through the roof. 162/92 to be exact. So the cute nurse tells me that she wants to check my blood pressure again and that she wants me to be relaxed and think of happy things. Well the only thing I could think of was, GET THIS KID OUT OF ME!! Once again my blood pressure is taken and it is still just as high. So they tell me to go to the room and that Dr. Ollerton will be in shortly to check on me. By this point Dave is ecstatic thinking that I just might be having Lincoln today!! He was way more anxious than I was. As I wait in the room for the Dr I am starting to feel nervous just like the day they told me that I would be walking over to the hospital to have MaKenna once my appointment was done. Almost like deja vu. But the only difference was this time I had my bags packed and they were with me. Just like I expected Dr. Ollerton walks in and tells me that he is going to call Labor and Delivery to let them know that I will be on my way there in the next few minutes. EEK!
As I get all settled in the hospital in my room I actually start to get nervous. I knew at that moment we will no longer be a family of three but four soon! After getting all settled with the pitocin and the Dr breaking my water it was now just the waiting game. Soon after that the nurse comes and and asks me when I want my epidural and I say when the contracts are getting bad. Few minutes later she comes back and tells me that the Dr wants me to get it ASAP so my blood pressure will stay down. When the nurse calls the anesthesiologist he is on his lunch break and wont be able to do it for an hour or so. By this time (12:30 pm) when the anesthesiologist actually makes it in to my room, my contractions are starting to get pretty bad and I am so happy that he is there to help with the pain.
My cute parents were there for a for a few hours just chilling with me, Dave and MaKenna. It was nice to have them there and keep us company. Right around 5pm my parents decide to leave and they take MaKenna with them. I believe by this time I was only dilated to a 6 so we figured it would be a while before I would have to start pushing. Dave decides to go get something to eat and while Dave is gone I all of a sudden get this HUGE amount of pain in my lower area and have the feeling that I need to start pushing. It is then that I realize first, my epidural has worn off and second that I may be dilated a lot more than ten minutes ago. Soon after Dave walks in and I can hardly handle the pain and I tell him to grab the nurse because I may start pushing on my own and don't think Dave is qualified to be the Dr at the moment. As the nurse checks me she tells us that I am ready to start pushing and she grabs Dr. Ollerton. Amazing that in less than
ten minutes I am pushing this little guy out. It was pretty intense because babies heart rate would drop as my contraction would come. Did I mention my contractions were less than a minute apart? So the Dr was starting to get anxious and told me I would have to push him out in the next few pushes or they would have to use the vacuum. I was having a hard time breathing so they had to put oxygen on me and I think that only made it worse. Within ten minutes of me pushing Lincoln John Neal was born on April 4th! 6 lbs 15 oz and 19 inches long. His lungs were having a hard time soon after he was born so they had to take him to start working on his lungs, so I only got to see him for a couple minutes. I was nervous but Dave would send me pictures of him and told me he was fine and they were gonna bathe him. I sat in my room alone for 30 minutes before they brought him to me. I was so happy to see my handsome boy. I just love him and he fits right in with our family.
We love you Lincoln!!

Merry Christmas 2010

Better late than never! This past year I decided that the Wilkins family needed to start a tradition. So, my mom and I planned a Christmas party with all of us at my house. We usually just get together on Christmas day but to me, that just wasn't enough. Oh and to make it a fun party, I decided it should be an ugly sweater Christmas party. We had a blast!!

Adam the winner of the ugliest sweater! It was a beauty!

Edyn with her cute sweater!

Dad and Dave...kinda a dark pic though
Dennis lecturing my mom about something. And Kylee with her mouth full. hahah

Mitzi and AJ frosting the cinnamon rolls. Those are AJ's specialty. SO YUMMY!!

This Christmas was centered around MaKenna. She was in heaven Christmas morning.

MaKenna got a new table to build with legos, a house from grammy and papa and a car so she can go fast!
I attempted to make stockings myself this year and they turned out pretty good!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I know we did!
