I am finally getting around to writing out Owen’s birth story! It’s taken me 3 months to finally do it! On April 23, 2019 we welcomed our sweet baby boy! It was a complete roller coaster the last two weeks before he was born! We went through 35 weeks of my pregnancy without any issues with my blood pressure. I was off my medicine because it was causing my blood pressure to drop so low and I was passing out due to it. We hit 35 weeks and that’s when my blood pressure decided to start acting up. At my 35 week checkup my blood pressure reading was 162/100 and of course with that high of a reading I got sent to the hospital for monitoring.. While there we found out I would need 12 hours of Magnesium and I had a moderate case of Pre-eclampsia. My protein levels were almost 400! I was also diagnosed with Chronic Hypertension.. I ended up having to have my labor stopped while there because the magnesium caused me to start having contractions, which is not very common! I was finally able to go home after a 4 day stay at the hospital.. But was also put on bed rest for the remainder of my pregnancy. Before 37 weeks of pregnancy I was sent to the hospital once more for Blood pressure monitoring.. At 37 weeks we went in for our induction! Induction was started at 7am, and by 5pm I asked for an epidural because I just couldn’t take the pain anymore. Inductions are super hard on your body, and I went in at only 1cm dilated and 50% effaced.. By 6pm, my epidural was in and I was finally able to relax fully.. Now my epidural only numbed about half my body which now I’m super happy it did because it helped me be able to push when the time came! About an hour later I told the nurse that I was only numbed half way and she went to go check me before calling in more epidural medicine and I was finally 10 cm! I was at a 6 when I got the epidural. And once the Dr. was called in, I pushed for about 10 minutes and he was born!! Owen weighed in at 7 pounds 7 ounces and 20.5 inches tall! Lexi was so excited to meet her baby brother the next day! And she’s been the sweetest Big Sister ever!
While at the hospital we had a dear friend take Newborn/fresh 48 pictures of Owen! And I’m still so in love with them! She did such amazing work!
We are so in love with our little man and so thankful He completed our family!!
So this morning we woke up to another round of snow! Our first round happened early Friday morning but it was mostly ice with a little snow! Now here in Mississippi we don’t get “winter weather”. We get the frigid cold temps and maybe some ice but that’s usually all.. So to get 3 inches of snow over night is big! I took Lexi out so she could play in it and her reaction was so hilarious! She loved it but would never touch it! All she wanted to do was shuffle her boots in the snow.. Apparently the girl is like her mama! I’m not really fond of it! I like summer and fall weather best!😉 I’m gonna attach the cutest pictures ever with her enjoying the snow!
She is such a little fashionista with the way she was posing in the pictures!
Hope each of you have a wonderful week!!

This one is my favorite taken recently with our newest bow! I love how it looks like she’s reading, though she’s watching TV.
Holding daddy’s candy was the only way to keep her sitting long enough for a picture!😂
This girl has so much sass! Toddlers are so fun! Sporting our Brand Rep exclusive bow right here!

Good afternoon! Today it’s been rainy and chilly.. I’m guessing we are getting leftover rain from the tropical depression that’s made it’s way through to here in North West Mississippi.. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone who has been affected by hurricane Irma!💜
Ok, so I’m so excited to announce that I’m opening my own business!! I’ll be selling Ring Slings, and brimless bonnets! I’m sure there will be more things but at this moment those are what I have on my list! I’ve wanted to sell homemade items for a couple years, but to be honest I didn’t think my sewing abilities were that Good! I’m hoping to have my website go live in December this year! So right now I’ve been busy sewing up cute bonnets! I do have a instagram page for everyone to keep up to date with everything so I’ll be linking that below!
Amazingly Blessed Shop
Here’s a sneak peek of the bonnets I’ve made so far! 💜💜 I’m so excited to see how this business takes off!
