Birth story {Alayna Nicole}

I woke up around 9:00 am on November 3, 2013 with some mild contractions , i had been having contractions on and off for the last couple of days, but on this morning i knew it was time. The contractions just felt different. So i got in the shower packed the few things that i had left out of my hospital bag and continued on with my morning routine of taking care of the other kiddos. When a contraction would come, like while i was in the middle of making breakfast, i would just stop and breathe through them. I also got on my birthing ball in different positions that helped elevate some of the pain. I labored at home for 3 hours until it was time to go to the hospital, the contractions where about 5 min apart but didn't last long, when we got to the hospital the nurse checked me and i was 7 cm dilated! The nurse couldn't believe i was so far dilated she said because i was so "controlled" the nurses were pretty good they left us alone for the most part and i was able to walk around get on my birthing ball and in different positions as much as i wanted. I asked for intermediate monitoring so i didn't have to be strapped to a machine the whole time they just came in every now and then to check mine and the baby's heart.

There where times when I felt i couldn't do it anymore, it hurt too bad and in my weakness My husband was amazing  i am not even exaggerating on how awesome  he is during birth. He reminded me that every contraction was one step closer to having our little girl, he told me how strong i was, and that this was a normal process my body was doing exactly what it was supposed to do , "don't fight the pain he would say just work with it." I had him massaging my lower back and moving with me during the contractions. We worked awesome as a team and i really couldn't do it without him.

Still at 7 cm i started to have the urge to push my water still had not broken so the midwife asked if i wanted to let her brake it. I agreed and like 30-45 min after that i was fully dilated and ready to push! I pushed in a half sitting position ,pushed 3 times and out she came!

Letter Of the Week

This Week the letter Of the Week was the letter "c" and the theme was fall leaves because She is so amazed At how the leaves are orange, yellow and red.
she glued the paper cookies i made on to the letter C and then we made chocolate chip cookies!
We went on a nature walk and she found a bunch of leaves that had changed colors and fallen. We talked about fall and how the leaves turn colors and fall off the trees to make room for the new leave that will grow in the spring, then she glued the leaves on a piece of paper and I added the tree trunk. 
I drew an uppercase letter C and a lowercase letter c and then let her glue cotton balls on. We talked about how cotton stats with the letter c and the sound that it makes.
Her  in action with the glue, which right now is her favorite thing to do
This is a pintrest idea that i found, I let her trace the letters and pictures with water and a paint brush. She also had to tell me the letter and the sounds that they make.
