3 Months Old

Zaden turned 3 months old on his daddy's birthday, December 15, 2009. He has learned so much. He tries to sit up on his own. It's so cute to watch! He will be sitting up all by himself for a minute or two and all of a sudden he crashes. We just sit him back up and he tries again. He loves it! Another thing he's learned is grabbing things. Last night we were in the kitchen and he was in the living room jumping in his jumper. We walk back in and he has his radle in his hand shaking it. It was amazing seeing him playing like that. He's getting to become quit the big boy. Also a new thing is his cute little giggle. It only happens here and there. We discovered it a few days ago when I was tickling him. Awe!! Nothing is sweeter than hearing a baby laugh. xOxo.

1st Christmas Party

Zaden sat on Santa's lap for the first time. I thought he would be just fine, I thought wrong. He cried for a little bit and then when everyone started talking to him it calmed him down. It was so adorable!
Every year Scott's mom's side of the family has a Christmas party and we all draw names to buy for one another. Zaden's cousin Lucas had him and vise versa. So before everyone gives their gift we give hugs. So Lucas gave Zaden the biggest little hug. It's so cute! Zaden had a great time. He was talking to everyone and checking them all out. He's getting smarter by the second. xOxo

Plaid family

Thanksgiving we decided to go to my parents house. It was beautiful!! My mother did a great job! My grandparents came and along with my two brothers and their little family's. I love getting together with family. It's the best.
Well my sister in law took this photo of me, Scott and Zaden. It wasn't until I realized that we were all wearing plaid. Lol!! I try to match my self but didn't realize I was secretly doing it with the boy's as well. Oh well... we look good. xOxo

Tummy Time

Tummy Time. My future mother in law told me about this. It's time the baby spends on his tummy so he isn't always laying flat on his back. It's to prevent flat head.
When we first tried it he wasn't too sure what to think. He got a little upset. I think it was because I didn't get down on the floor with him. So as soon as I did, he loved it. It's actually making his neck and arms stronger. After a few minutes he starts to get irritated by it, it seems. So we turn him around and try to sit him up on his bobby. I think he likes it better sitting up. We try to do it at least once every day. Sometimes he will just fall a sleep on it. It's adorable! xOxo

Favorite spot to nap

Zaden's new place to nap is right on mommy's chest. For a while I could hold him until he fell a sleep and lay him in his bed. As of today I try to lay him down he wakes right back up and wont fall back to sleep until I put him on my chest. I love to cuddle with him but sometimes I can't do it all day. I have things that need to get done. But of course I'm going to stop what I'm doing to cuddle with him. I'm sure it will end when he gets older. So I'm taking advantage now. I'm sure going to miss these days. I love you son. Love mommy. xOxo

2 months old

I can't believe how much time flys. Our little guy is already 2 months old. He has so much personality. It's amazing!! For a couple of weeks now he has been able to hold his head up on his own and try to stand with a little of our help. He talks so much, well baby talk. It's adorable! Sometimes Scott will put Zaden's feet on the floor and practice baby steps. It's funny cause he's so little. He's starting to smile even more when you talk to him. Certain things make him happy, but if you try to do it again he won't smile, he's over it. Time to move to the next thing to make him happy. We put his mobile with a projector up in his bassinet. He loves it!! He looks up at and can just talk to it, smile at it, and sometimes laugh a little at it. We can put him in there and he will stay content for a while. That's his favorite toy for now.

Baby's 1st Halloween

We decided to dress Zaden up as a pumpkin for Halloween. He is about 1 month and 2 weeks old here. When I first put the costume on him he was looking at the hood from the corner of his eye's. They say baby's can see orange and a couple other color's at this age. So he seemed over whelmed with it. I wanted to take cute Halloween pictures of him. So we had our own little photo shoot. Lol. He was okay at first with it. Then he started to get tired. I had to give him his binky. He loves that thing. Anyways... this photo is one of many that we took. Scott just laughed at me and couldn't believe exactly how many we did take that day.
On the day of Halloween. We took him to see his grandma and grandpa Dalton and then his Papa and grandma Buffie. He slept through out it all.

1st month

Zaden started to smile when he became a month old. He usually only smiled and giggled in his sleep. Now he smiles when he's awake. It is so very cute!! Me and Scott would even tear up a little when we hear or see him do one or the other. It's such an amazing feeling to know that your baby is happy.

First couple week's home with baby Z

The first couple of week's home with the baby was interesting. Learning what we had to do to keep Zaden peaceful. Me getting up every two to three hours to feed. Most of the time Scott would get up with us to help out as much as he could. He was and still is a very happy baby, easy to please. If anything happened with him, his dad was right there to google it and find out what was going on with him. The day Scott had to go back to work he was such a worry wort. He got up early to make sure I had everything I needed to take care our little guy. He called every chance he had to see how Zaden was doing. Scott is a wonderful dad!! I don't know what we would do without him. We love him so very much.

The Birth of our son Zaden Thomas Dalton

Zaden Thomas Dalton came into our lives on Tuesday September 15, 2009 at 5:14 pm and weighed 7lbs 2oz and 19 1/2 inches long.

He was a C-section baby, not planned at all. We had a great pregnancy but when we were 38 weeks along the amniotic fluid was running low and the placenta had a lot of calcium around it and was crusted, so it was getting old. My doctor, Dr. Krista Anders, here in Tooele, decided it was time to induce me. So we went in at 5:00 pm on Monday September 14, 2009 to be admitted to the O.B at Mountain West Medical Center. They gave me something to help soften the uterus. I knew what it was at the time but couldn't tell you now. I think I still have "Baby Brain" as they call it. So then everything went well until the next day. At about 10:00 am they decided to break my water. It was a weird experience. I then started to have contractions, they were small ones but still painful. I held out for as long as I could. The nurse gave me a pain medicine to help me out a bit and that stuff just made me sick and dizzy. After that wore out the contractions got worse. So I asked the nurse for more pain medicine, thinking the next amount wouldn't faze me but it did the exact same. Made me sick and dizzy. At that point my lovely boyfriend Scott decided to purpose to me. He looked a little pale him self. He started to go on about our lives together and how happy he is. I had no idea he was purposing. I just thought he was sharing his feelings. Then I had to stop him and make him grab a bucket for me so I can throw up from the medicine. After that was over with Scott started to repeat himself. That's when it clicked in my head what was going on. It was so beautiful! Funny how it happened but he made the most happiest girl in the world.

Back to the contractions. They started to get even worse so that's when I told the nurse it was time for the epidural. I was so nervous when they were getting it ready. It wasn't painful at all. After that it was smooth sailing, so I thought. I couldn't feel the contractions at all or feel my leg's. They were worried that I wouldn't be able to push so they stopped the epidural. Me and Scott both decided to take a nap while we waited for our bundle of joy. About and hour or so later my doctor came in to check to see what I was dialated at, it was a 9. So she wanted me to try to push. That's when they noticed the baby's heart rate was going up to 180 when a contraction would come along. So when I would push it only made his heart rate go up even more. Finally I was dialated to a 10 and we started to push even harder. I had my honey holding one leg, my mother holding the other and my future mother in law up by my left arm. Everyone was helping me to push but it wasn't good enough. My doctor ordered an emergency C-section. I was so scared of that. I didn't want it and I started to cry and almost hyperventilate. I told my need to calm down for that baby. So I did.

On my way to the operating room, Scott was assuring me everything will be OK and I believed him. They lifted me onto the table and was getting me ready. I had no clue when my doctor actually started to cut. That's when they let Scott come into the room. He was in a white tyvek with a hair net and mask. He sat by me and held my hand the hole time. He would peak over the curtain to see everything. I could feel it all. It didn't hurt, just felt weird. At least I could still feel the baby coming out. I was afraid I wouldn't. Then Scott said in an amazed voice "There he is babe". And they showed me him for a second or two. He was so amazing and a big boy too. Scott then went to help them check him and clean him off a bit and wrap him up to come see me some more. They brought him over to me by my head and all I remember was his beautiful eyes just staring at me. I couldn't believe it. My baby boy was here. That was the most happiest time of my life.

As they were putting me back together, Scott was over in the O.B with Zaden. He was getting cleaned and weighed. My parents were there along with Scott's parents. My brother and his wife, Scott's brother and sister, and my best friends. All to see the new baby boy born into our lives. What an amazing day!! I love you Zaden Thomas Dalton and your daddy who gave you to me. You are my world!! ;)
