Marley Jo Romney Born September 6, 2012 at 6:05pm weighing 7lb 12oz

I know this post is LONG overdue but I finally have a second to start telling everyone the story of when my Marley Jo was born. My due date was scheduled to be on September 3, 2012, I went into premature labor three times and never had the baby, I finally thought that after the third time the baby was either going to be early or right on time, WRONG! I had to be induced because she just didn't want to come. Marley Jo came three days late with the help of the pitocin to help induce my labor. The night we went into the hospital to be induced I was so excited! I wanted nothing more than to have my baby girl here in my arms. We got checked into the hospital at 11:00pm and I was only at a 2 at the time, I knew then that this was going to be a long long long stay at the hospital. The next day I woke up and was slowly progressing, It was really nice to have my husband and mom at the hospital with me to keep me company. Basically I endured 19 hours of labor and to be honest I thought that premature labor was ten times worse than regular labor, but once I got my epidural my life was at peace. I literally slept through my entire labor my mom says she's never seen a labor like mine. At about 5:15pm things started picking up. my nurse was noticing that my contractions were getting really close together and they were getting really strong so she sent everyone out of the room to check me, and low and behold I was FINALLY at a 10! It was time to start pushing. I started pushing for 10-15 minutes before my doctor arrived Taylor was a real trooper. He watched the whole labor, at first he did NOT want to watch any part of the labor until the nurse pointed out how much hair the baby had and he was hooked. After 2 more hard pushes my baby girl was FINALLY here! I was crying a lot because I was just so happy knowing that I was this little angel's mother. Marley weighed 7lb 12oz she was born with LOTS of dark brown hair and looked exactly like me when my mom had me, she was perfect! I didn't get to hold her for the longest time because I lost a lot of blood and to top it off I tore while delivering her so I had to get sewed up, It took a long time. But once they put her in my arms it felt like the world just stood still I don't think I've ever loved something so much I couldn't believe that she was my baby and that I got to take her home and raise her as my daughter. Taylor is amazing with her, I thought that he would be really timid with her at first but he acts like he's been a father for a long time. I know he loves Marley so much and I know she loves him, I love watching him play with her. Every time she starts fussing he holds her like an airplane and runs around the house with her and to most peoples surprise it calms her down, she's in love with her dad. I will never forget that day I am so grateful that I am a mother to a wonderful, happy and healthy baby. Marley is 2 months old now and has been a good baby since she made her grand entrance to Earth. She is my star I couldn't imagine my life without her. I love my husband so much! He is an incredible father I love my little family so much.

My Sassy Little Girl

I'm sure you are looking at this and are wondering sassy little girl? What are you talking about? Well my baby girl is not here yet but I know she's already got a sassy little attitude that is making me nervous. Two weeks ago I woke up to a little bleeding so I called my mom to see if she knew what could be going on. She told me to grab Taylor and head up to the hospital because she thought I could possibly be in labor. I kept thinking to myself, "No way can I be in labor right now I'm only 33 weeks and I'm feeling no contractions." I really thought when we went into the hospital they would send me home, but we went in anyway just to make sure everything was okay with my baby. As we drive up to the doors Taylor just tells me to walk in and at least get checked in and he would go and park the car and be in as soon as he could. Well I walk in and had no idea where to go but this little Hispanic lady comes up to me and says, "You go to labor now? You need me to show you direction?" All I could do to keep myself from laughing was just shake my head yes, so she takes me to where I needed to go. I felt bad leaving Taylor but I knew he'd be able to find his way on his own. They checked me in and the nurse starts hooking me up to a monitor and starts asking me tons and tons of questions, and as I'm answering the questions she tells me that I am having contractions that are two to three minutes apart. WHAT! How could I be having contractions when I'm feeling 0 pain? I guess me and the world will never know. Basically I was going into premature labor and at 33 weeks that's okay but not the best thing in the world. If she came that early she would be in the NICU for 2 weeks or more which would have cost Taylor and I a fortune and I would've went home without my baby girl. I don't want that to happen. The doctors had to slow down my contractions with this shot that basically gave me an anxiety attack, it is the worst shot you could ever get. Your heart races like crazy which makes it really difficult to breath and your body does nothing but shakes. I'm so grateful that I had my husband and mom there with me, I really don't think I'd be able to handle everything as well as I did if they weren't there supporting me through everything. After 4 hours in the hospital the doctors got the contractions under control and decided that I could finally go home. I couldn't even walk without somebody holding on to me because of the shot, I felt awful! Things are going really great! I'm 36 weeks now I still have to take it easy but things are a lot better now. I'm so grateful for the love and support that my family and Taylor's family has showed us. I really don't know what I would do without my family.

Happy Mother's Day!

How crazy is it that I got to celebrate Mothers Day? Well I'll tell you, it was super crazy! I know My baby is not here for another 3 months but my family did a lot to make me feel like I was a mother. I told my husband that I didn't want him to get me anything because technically I'm not an "official" mom. But he came and woke me up and got me the cutest card! I loved it so much and thought it was so nice of him to get that for me. I also received a king size candy bar from church, a flower from my sister in law and a hanging basket from my father in law. I really enjoyed Mothers day but then I was a little sad. I didn't get to see my mom at all that day. I hope I show my mom everyday how much I love and appreciate the things she does for me. I love that my daughter will have her as a grandmother.....Oh wait she doesn't want to be called grandma, she wants to be called Muz! Cute right?! My mom has been an amazing role model in my life and I hope that I can take the lessons that she has taught me and take them into my own life when my baby girl come. I love you so much mom HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!!

Happy Easter

Easter Is probably one of my most favorite holidays! My Grandma Atkinson has a tradition where we get together the Saturday before Easter and have a fun family lunch and a HUGE! Easter egg hunt. We usually go to Grandmas for lunch but they had to go to a funeral so they weren't able to be at the lunch, so this year we went to my Aunt Amy's house and had our lunch.
We have a tradition that every family brings some kind of lunch, we then put a number on them and we have everyone draw a number and whatever number you get that's the food you will be eating plus the number you get will be the person you get to eat with. For the past 3 years I've had my little brother Kreed and low and behold we got each other again this year! We always have so much fun with each other. We had a yummy sandwich with apples slices, pickles, pringles chips and cheese. Like I said it was YUMMY!
After our lunch we went over to Grandmas and had our Easter egg hunt. It's always a blast to look for Easter eggs no matter how old you are. I had to go to work after the hunt but besides that everything was so much FUN!
Easter Sunday after church we went to Grandma Atkinsons and ate our Easter dinner once again it was so YUMMY!!! After we got done with dinner we went to Taylor's family's house to spend one last time with his sister before she moves to Virginia. I love my family so much! I really am so blessed to have them in my life.

My Best Friends Endowment Session

Going to the Temple for the first time is an exciting and scarey time. I remember the first time I took my endowments out, I really had no idea what to expect. I was so happy that I had so much love and support from not only my own family but from my husbands family.
Today I went to my best friends endowment session. She looked so beautiful! I loved that I was able to be their with her parents to support her. I can't believe that she's going on a mission, Valerie and I have been best friends since 4th grade and our friendship has grown stronger and stronger everyday.
I can't even begin to tell you how much I am going to miss Valerie. She has been the one I go to when I feel like the world is going to end and crash down on me. But this is something that the Lord wants my friend to do, she is going to be an amazing missionary and is going to change the lives of so many people. she is a wonderful person and who ever gets her for a mission companion is in for the best time of her life. I love you Val!!!

Green Dinner At Grandma and Grandpa Atkinson's House

I am so late blogging about St. Patricks Day. I know It's not a huge holiday, but in my family every little holiday is a huge holiday. My Grandparents gets the whole family together for one amazing green dinner. Everyone comes dressed in green and the party begins. My Grandma is probably one of the best cooks I know, she made a yummy chicken casserole with green salad, green veggies, green jello even the drinks were green, like I said my grandparents go all out on holidays and it's never boring. I really have the best family in the whole wide world I love them so much and I'm so blessed to have them as a part of my family.
