Chubba Chubba!




So one Tuesday we took Kamden to the Doctor to do a weight check to make sure he was gaining weight. When Nic and I took him last week he weighed 7lbs 2oz. Which was good seeing as he had dropped down to 6lbs 14oz by the time we left the hospital. Anyway he weighed 8lbs even at the Doctor. We see a PA named Bill at Mesa Pediatrics and I really really like him. He's on top of things and he is really good about making you feel like your concerns or questions are important. Anyway Bill walked in and visited with Taya a bit... she Loves him. And then he said, "So did the nurse tell you how much Kamden weighs?" I replied, "Yeah, 8lbs even." He then told me how idealy they want a newborn to gain at least 1/2 an oz a day and Kamden gained 14oz in 7 days. Meaning his average weight gain was 2oz a day!! "So can we say chunk?!" The Dr said then he said, "My next question is... I have a bunch of kids that can't gain weight. Can I send them your way?" I just started laughing. Nursing Kamden has been such a great thing so far.. he wakes every 3-4 hours to eat and I haven't had an problems like I did with Taya. I am alot more dedicated to it this time. So things are great! I am enjoying being home with both my kids. Taya is a big helper and she adores her little brother!

HE IS HERE!!

Kamden Nicholaus Despain arrived at 9:30 am. He weighed in at 7lbs 6oz and is 20 and a 1/2 inches long. He did not want to come out... in fact they would push one way and he'd go the other lol. Other than that things went great. He is beautiful with lots of dark hair. Mom is doing great, SORE but doing great. Click on this link to access the pictures of our adventure so far.

Just a few thoughts....

So we decided that Kamden is pretty content. We are scheduled at 9:00am tomorrow morning for the c-section. I have had some good contractions here and there but nothing consistant. We are excited to meet our little guy. I really can't wait for him to be here. I am nervous for the procedure tomorrow. I don't think I will be getting much sleep. I know things will probably be fine but whole thought of getting cut open and the IV... just makes me nervous. I think that is why I have been so content with just waiting... It's crazy to think that in less than a day we will be welcoming a little guy into our family of three. Nic is so ready! He motivates me to walk and all that... He says, "let's get this baby out." Taya is ready as well she asks everyday if today is the day. She came and climbed in bed with me this morning and I told her that tomorrow when she woke up Kamden would be here. She squealed and rubbed my belly. She then looked at me and said, "I am going to hold him, squeeze him, and call him my own." My dad always says that to her and it made me smile. We can't wait!!!
