Daddy gets pooped on....and pooped on again....

Dave is such a great daddy...he pitches in 50/50...It was so funny tonight when he went to change Isabella's diaper. He wasn't fast enough and she pooped all over him...he started screaming for me to help. I ran in to the nursery to help him out....where she started to poop on him again....I just kept laughing...it was funny...both of their reactions. Isabella is such a good baby. She sleeps most of the day and when she is awake she smiles (I know, it is probably gas:) I am becoming a bit stir crazy staying at home. I really am grateful to have a few weeks of bonding, but know I will be ready to go back to work.


Settled with the new baby

Today was the first day I was all by myself with Isabella. She is such a good baby. She sleeps most of the day and only wakes up one or two times a night. My mom was so wonderful and stayed with me for a week after her birth. I do not know what I would have done without her. Dave's mom has also been a big help. School has started for teachers, but I am not going back until Sept 22. I am so grateful to have six full weeks to bond with Isabella. I went and picked up paper work for her daycare and am pretty excited that it is right next to my school. Spring Branch has a few schools for teacher's babies and I was lucky enough to secure the last spot at Tiger Trails (the one next to my school). I can even pop over during my planning period to check on little Isabella!


Isabella Caroline Wilcox

Isabella Caroline Wilcox was born August 7, 2008 at 2:33 pm. She weighed 6 lbs 14 oz and was 19 inches long. She is the sweetest, smartest, cutest baby!!!!! Dave and I checked into the hospital Wednesday evening to start the induction. I started laboring on my own so I did not have to be given the pictocin. After the doctor broke my water, the contractions got stronger and things really started. Thankfully it was not a long, hard labor. We love her so much and can't wait for everyone to meet her!!!!


Collapsed Ceiling

We have had drama over the last couple of days.....not baby drama, but house drama...around the stroke of midnight...August 3rd (Isabella's due date) Dave, William, and Paige were in the study playing computer games (I know....crazy that they were still awake)....when Paige noticed the ceiling was looking weird. William noticed a funny smell.... All of a sudden the ceiling collapsed. I was sleeping. It is the biggest mess....not good timing with the baby coming on Thursday and family all coming in Wednesday. We have been staying at Christa's house while we try and figure out the fix. We thought a pipe busted, but the plumber said no, it must be the air conditioner. So I am going to have to go meet the air conditioning people, state farm insurance adjuster, contractors, etc.....we just hope this is not a sign that little Isabella is going to bring drama...haha..just joking...


The List.....

Ok....so tomorrow is my due date.....For the last 2 weeks I have been trying anything and everything to make this baby come. I thought I would post a list of all the crazy things I have tried.
1. lots of walking
2. made Eggplant Parmesan recipe that is supposed to put you in labor
3. ate chicken curry at Thai recipe (made them use 5X the spicy sauce)
4. ate very spicy Mexican food
5. went to Carabas Italian restaurant because someone said a certain recipe put people into labor
6. ate suicide wings at Wings and more
I could go on and add things to the list......I am really glad I only have a few days left!!!!!
