The New Little Baby
It has been a long day for mom, dad and baby. Emma Belle Davies was born September 15, 2008 at 8:15PM. She weighed 7 lbs 6.5 oz and was 20.5 inches. She has a full head of dark hair, dark eyes and one dimple on her right cheek. April had a very easy and fast delivery. Once the epidural was in place everything was great. She went from 4cm dilated to the full 10 in a short time and the nurse had to rush the Dr over before she was born. Once all of the family came and visited and the commotion settled down it was a great time for the new small family to bond. Emma just ate for almost an hour straight and had her footprints and her first bath. April was able to eat some real food while Emma was getting a bath and both are all swaddled up and down for the night (or for the next few hours). I know everyone says this, but my little girl is the most beautiful thing I have ever laid eyes on. All of the nurses have claimed her as the cutest of the day. I have so much more to write, but it is very late (1 AM) and dad is getting a little tired here too. I have posted just a few of the thousands of pictures for those of you who wanted to see some asap. I am sure April will be posting here once she gets a chance.
Halloween in AZ
This is the first picture I could find of us. Really it is Christmas now. Rod and I had fun planning this Halloween party. I even thought it would be a good time to make costumes ( I will think more about that next time).
Europe up till now
We spent a month this summer in Europe and it was so fun!! Then we packed up and moved from Bullhead City to Tempe, AZ. Roderick is enjoying his time finishing his Economics degree at ASU ( although finals stink). I am being a dental hygienist in Scottsdale, which is very fun! I love the people I work with and it keeps me busy. We are getting ready to head up to Utah next week for our Christmas break and can't wait. This blogging stuff is fun!
