Kaiya's First Big Adventure

Well, it really isn't that big, but we did venture out this afternoon to see the Sakura (cherry blossoms). They are only in bloom for one week a year, and Kaiya was born in time to see them this year. It was nice for all of us to get out, and we think Kaiya liked it even though she slept the whole time. She even dressed up in her cherry outfit for it. We took a ton of pictures, but here are a few of the really cute ones:)

Hospital Photos

We're home now, but these are some pictures of Kaiya in the hospital. The pictures are a little deceiving though because she isn't much of a sleeper really. But we are beginning to figure each other out. I want to write more, but the little one isn't in the mood, so hopefully more later.

Kaiya Elizabeth Taylor

The little angel we've all been waiting for finally arrived on the 18th at 10:28pm. She weighed 7lbs 2oz and was 19 inches long. I will give the brief story now and put some photos up, and Im sure Crystal will fill in a lot of holes once she gets home. Contractions started at 2am on the 18th, we went the hopsital at 1pm and contractions were at 3 minutes, but she was only dialated cm. By 8pm the contractions were on top of each other so there was no rest but she was still only at 5cm. The pain was so bad we asked if there was anything they could do and the nurse said. "you could always do and epideral," which went against everything we'd been told for the last 9 months. So 30 minutes later Crystal was Crystal again and because she could relax she dialated a lot faster. By 10 she was at 9cm, but her water stil hadnt broken. The nurse said push at about 10:10 and about four contractions later she was out. The doctors and nurses were all amazed someone who was making as much noise as Crystal from pain could push her out so fast. So thats the birth story. I'm sure well add a lot more side stories, but I'm pretty sure you all just want pictures anyway, so heres a few more. Bear in mind all these photos were taken within an hour of birth so we was still in the alien/grandpa phase. Lastly, sorry if this message sounded funny but I havet slept in 2 days and Crystal usually proofreads my blog entries anyway. Thanks for all the support everyone gave us.
Sorry the formating was weird, couldnt get the text before the pictures.
