Caroline Jane Lawrence

Caroline Jane Lawrence arrived in the wee hours of the morning on October 15th 2011. She was born via c-section at 0001 in the morning. Dr. Dryden decided on Friday afternoon to go ahead with the c-section a week early after a non-stress test showed non-reassuring fetal heart tones. An ultrasound was done which showed that Caroline had her cord in her hand and was occasionally squeezing it (silly girl- that is something I could see Audrey doing). When Caroline got here her daddy was the first to announce to the room that “it’s a girl!! Caroline’s Apagar scores were 9/9 and she weighed 6 pounds 1 ounce and is PERFECT!!

We were in the recovery room for several hours following a bad reaction to some pain meds I was given so we didn’t get to a room until about 5 am on Saturday morning. We had lots of friends and family members that were anxious to meet miss Caroline and came to visit us while we were in the hospital.



Caroline looks so much like her big sister did when she was born. Below are pictures of them side by side, see if you can tell who is who

Ultrasound picture of baby “L”

Today we had an ultrasound of baby “L” and got the cutest little 3D picture of the baby. Look at those chubby little cheeks. Audrey had the chubbiest little cheeks when she was born too.

This is a picture of Audrey when she was just a few hours old. I think they look a lot alike, but I will let you guys decide.

32 weeks with Baby #2

I am 32 weeks pregnant with baby #2 and this baby seems to be causing me more grief than Audrey did when I was pregnant with her. All the doctor keeps telling me is that I am older and “our bodies as they age don’t handle things the same as they did when they were younger”. Booo I’m not old.

Anyway I have gestational diabetes (so they say, I am still not convinced). I am having to check my blood sugars four times a day and cut out cookies, cakes and Cokes, the 3 C’s - everything I love. SO no more going to subway and ordering chocolate chip cookies, no not as a side as my main course. Now my blood sugars have been LOW not high.

The baby is measuring a little on the small side which is odd for a baby of diabetic mothers, usually these babies develop a “fat pocket” and get very big in utero. So the Doctor is a little concerned so I am going to the hospital twice a week for non-stress tests and I am having more frequent ultrasounds.

Audrey is busier than ever just as I am slowing down more. She is learning so much every day and is really starting to comprehend things. I know she is going to be a great big sister. Hope to post again soon.

30 weeks

Just a few pictures of me 30 weeks pregnant with Baby #2. We are all very excited to welcome baby into our little family (although I am sure Kizzie is not to thrilled)

I was just diagnosed with gestational diabetes so I am learning how to check my blood sugars and keep them better in control. I have affectionately referred to little bit as “honey bun” because I have a little sweet bun in the oven.

WOW it’s a while …….

It’s been a long time since I have posted on our blog and I have no good excuse for it. A lot has happened in the year since my last post so I will try and fill you in. Jeremy Audrey and I moved into a new house in April 2011 and we love it. It was a little bitter sweet, but mostly sweet. It was tough moving from the town house where we started our little family but with arrival of number number two in October we needed more space. Below are a few picture of the new place.



Like I said earlier we are expecting baby number two in October. We decided not to find our what we are having this time so it is very exciting. Audrey is super excited about being a BIG sister and has already been practicing.


Audrey turned two in June and we had a big party for her at the new house. It was a Minnie Mouse theme because she has a new obsession with Mickey Mouse Club House.
