FINALLY! I got my gallbladder out!!! woohoooo!!! I spent the lest 5 months of my pregnancy in EXTREME pain (worse than contractions) maybe... haha because of my stinkin gallbladder! Monday I went in and had it removed, I was sooooooo nervous and saw my life ending in the OR. I now know I watched to much Greys Anatomy. Anyway, I am recovering well, slowly but surely.
SO thankful this year. So many ch-ch-changes in my life for the better, I just looked at my son today and cried. I was so distraught a year ago about possibly not being able to have such a miracle. And I was so blessed to be able to have sweet baby Noah. God can do whatever he wants. I think we get wrapped up in everything else sometimes, what to do when we are pregnant. What the right thing to do as a parent. ECT. And it becomes this battle of opinions and who is right and who is wrong. BUT when I look at my baby boy, this MIRACLE. I don't care about anything else in this world. God gave Judah and I this ANGEL, and we are so unworthy of this gift. I am blessed this Thanksgiving beyond belief. My God is such a good God. He saved my husband from leukemia, he gave me an amazing man, he helped me through the pregnancy from (hell) :) and gave me baby NOAH. How can I not say I am thankful this Thanksgiving. I told Judah this morning "Remember when we would sit around the table and everyone would say what they where thankful for and everyone would say, my family?" "Well.... I get it now." :) Thank you Lord for my family. I love them. Nothing else matters anymore. :)

To sleep or not to sleep!!!??
Oh, my sweet baby Noah does not like to fall asleep without being rocked.
Although, I LOVE rocking him, I know this could become a bad habit. I can't stand hearing him cry, it makes me cry. He is a dry crier (no tears) But if I leave him in his little bed at nap time and he starts crying there are tears!! Breaks my heart. I'm not sure if I want to keep trying this "cry it out" method!
My husband and I are trying to decide on vaccinating Noah or not, this is a really tough decision. We are doing the research so if anyone has research that they have done on this please feel free to pass it our way :)
Raining again :)

Fall is here in the northwest!! AND I LOVE IT!
I also realized I haven't blogged in 5 weeks, my full intent was to share the first few weeks of sweet Noah's life. But, honestly, I was to tired. :) So I will catch you up now!
Noah is 6 1/2 weeks old.
ROLL OVER!!!! :)
He just discovered his voice, and so he will make little squeeks and squils to say "Hello!"
It is so amazing watching his grow so quick! When he was born he was 6 lbs. 6 oz. Now he is almost 9 lbs!!!!

Wow, These last two weeks are so CRAZY with a newborn. I love being a mom. I love that sweet baby boy more than anything. He keeps us very busy, I have no idea how new moms have time to blog, I really want to tell everyone about my new motherhood, but I just can't find time!! Any suggestions?

Oh man, we have had a night. I think little Noah is allergic to dairy. I thought back to the timing of foods I ate and it seems that he is inconsolable after I feed him after eating dairy. He was up all night screaming! Poor little guy..
Has anyone else experienced this? What to do!?? We go to the doctor today, so I am excited for some advice.

Well I thought I would start a blog about being a mommy. I don't know if I am going to be amazing at it, but I have so many family members spread across the country, I really don't want them to miss any moment of Noah's life.
Noah Jesse Kirkwood is going to be his name.
Noah means- Peace and Jesse means-God exists.
This Wednesday at 6pm, we go to St. John Medical Center to start the induction process. I have pretty much every emotion in the book about this. We are so thrilled to meet our guy, beyond thrilled! But, we are also extremely nervous for all of the unexpected. This pregnancy has been pretty rough, but I know the second I see his little cute face, I will be officially melted. I love him so much already how does this happen!? I feel like I know him, and that he is just so sweet. Noah is a miracle, and I will post that story a different time. But really, all babies are miracles. God is a beautiful artist. So, wish us luck! We are really nervous and excited! Keep us in your prayers, that God's peace would fill the room constantly. That the doctors would have wisdom and that we would have wisdom.
