Jenedy Candice Root

Not that you want to see me again, but here is the last "official belly" prego pic we took @ 38wks. She was born @ 39 1/2 wks.
So, the delivery was wonderful! NO C-Section! I ended up at the hospital on 12/27 @ about 8pm. My doctor had me admitted, broke my water and started me on pitocin at 9:30. It was a sneaky, planned induction. If you want to know full details you can call me:). I was able to deliver her vaginally and naturally with just a little bit of help at the end. The nurse kept under measuring me which was very hard for me mentally. For me, if I'm prepared mentally the pain is more manageable. The nurse came in at about 4 (I think) and said I was only a 5, which I was almost a 5 at my appt earlier that day! So, my wonderful friend Heather who is training to be a doula requested the dr come in and check! So grateful that she did because mentally that crushed me and I was ready for an epidural! (which everyone at the birth knew I did NOT want) He came in and checked...almost a 7! So, I just got a dose of pain med through my IV to take the edge off, with some antinausea (I had been throwing up too). I was so tired that it actually made it so I could rest and take a light nap, still could feel them but not as intense. About 1 hr later they had the nurse :( come in and check, but this time she actually had good was fully engaged and I was ready to push! Pushing took about 1hr and I had a really bad push at the beginning because I was so anxious, I actually made a ton of blood vessels burst in my eyes! I look like a vampire! But, out she came with no c-section!
6:02 am December 28th 7lbs 14oz & 20 1/2in long!!!

Peyton is LOVING his little sister! He is always wondering where "baby" is and has been such a big helper. If she's crying he'll go get her binkie all on his own and put it in her mouth. He comes and stands on a box next to the changing table and talks to her while I change her diaper and he loves to put her dirty clothes in the hamper! He is so cute but seems SO old now!

Winter fun & Christmas

Merry Christmas! We've had a wonderful winter so far! We even got out in the first snow over Thanksgiving weekend and took Peyton sledding for the first time! He LOVED it! Christmas was great & we got to spend eve with my fam & day eve with Jake's. We have more pics we took with our video camera but I don't know how to get them onto the computer! HAHA Peyton has been in heaven with all his gifts, especially his golf clubs, train set, & matchbox cars! 100% boy!(pics out of order)

Speed Catch-up! has been just a little while since I have blogged. That's an under statement, but here we go for all you complainers! There won't be very much writing, so if you have questions just leave a comment and ask!


(Big event of the month...Dad Root's 60th Birthday Bash!)

Random pics


Well, I don't know where to start. March was a very emotional month for our family. On March 25th Jake's younger brother Paul passed away. There are not enough words to describe how wonderful Paul is. He was such a wonderful brother, son, uncle, husband, brother in-law, and friend to many. Anytime you were in his presence you couldn't help but smile and feel loved. We will forever miss him, but I KNOW that he is truly in a better place and he is no longer suffering. I love you Paul and feel completely blessed to know you.

Another emotional event happened in March as well...Peyton turned 1! This was a very exciting moment though. Which was a little blessing too I think, it was something happy and positive to celebrate in a very sad time of mourning. We need move the birthday to Peyton's actual birthday, it was best.

He was hilarious with this cake! We have so many more pics!

Most favorite b-day present!


(Big event this cousin Ashton's wedding in Las Vegas!)

Peyton had to make his daddy proud since he couldn't be there to enjoy it with him!
