If you haven't heard yet, I'm currently in the hospital with meningitis! Crazy, I know. But, since I am here, obviously my baby is not. Today is day 3 that I haven't seen her and I miss her so terribly. Thankfully everyone has been so helpful with watching her and I know she is in good hands. Grammy Pammy and Grandpa and staying at our house with her and they have been sending me pics, thank you!! I will share some here for you to enjoy as well. She doesn't seem to miss me much!! She stayed with Nonny and Pop on Friday and even went to a funeral. Apparently she was well-behaved, thankfully!!
I'm improving but will likely be here until tomorrow. The docs are waiting on my cultures to come back to decide if this is viral or bacterial. Let's hope for viral, otherwise I have to go home with a PICC line and antibiotics at home. I'll keep you posted. Thank you for all your well wishes!!

I still can't believe how tiny she is...she looks like a doll! The pictures don't do her justice either! Mom and Sadie are doing well today and had lots of visitors. Kaia wasn't quite sure what to make of baby Sadie....they are sure to be best friends soon!
It is 5am and I just got home from the hospital. Jaclyn had her baby this morning!! What a quick labor too. She got to the hospital around midnight and was 3 cm dilated, an hour later she was 9 cm and out popped the little peanut at 0245am!! They had a baby girl and named her Sadie Lavina Gervais. She is absolutely adorable and so tiny!! She only weighed 6 lbs and she is 19 inches long. She has a full head of dark, curly hair! Now Kaia has a BFF for life! Mom and baby are doing well and Marcel is so in love already! Jaclyn was so strong and such a trooper too! Congrats guys..we love you and are so excited!! Pics to follow soon, I promise!!

Hello all! I know, I know...I've been away from here for a bit. No excuses but I just can't seem to find the time lately!! Anyway...time to update all the happenings as of late!!
First of all, I am still not an auntie yet. Jaclyn was due yesterday but she didn't make it happen. And not for a lack of trying I'm sure. That kiddo doesn't seem to want to exit the warm and cozy womb just yet!! We are anxiously awaiting it's arrival though. I'll be sure to keep you posted when the big day comes (for real)!!!
On to the Kaia front: Well, she is now 18 lbs and has her first tooth! She is rolling and rolling and gets up like she wants to crawl. She is actually 7 months old today and I still can't believe it. She eats solids like a champ and I am proud to say that I make all her food. This coming from the person who cannot cook to save her life!! It's actually pretty easy though...lots of steaming and pureeing and then freezing. Some of the faces are priceless though, especially if she isn't too keen on "what's for dinner".
Sean and I are heading to Atlanta in a few weeks for a conference and a visit with his mom and family. Flying with a baby for the first time is sure to be an adventure! Pray for us!
I have several pics to share today...all of Baby K of course! Grammy Pammy bought her tons of outfits and adorable shoes for the spring and they played dress up with one of her hats and sunglasses....I can't wait to see her in all the cute clothes in the warmer months! The last few pics were taken this week. She has been sick with a faucet of a nose and rosey-red cheeks. This didn't stop her from having fun at bath time with Nonny!! Have a great week and the next time you here from me...we'll be Aunt Julie and Uncle Sean!!
