Our little girl!

So I'm finally posting since I had Oakley! I feel like I have so much to say and catch up on! So I guess we will start from the beginning! 


LABOR.... Well it went a little different then how I thought and was told it was going to go. Lets see... the girls in my family all have gone a couple weeks early, they're labors were pretty fast, and pushing wasn't to awful! So, that's what my mom told me I was going to be like... OH BOY was she WRONG! I went into labor February 3 at 7:30 in the morning which was the day before I was due. My contractions started off pretty strong, they were 3 to 5 mins a part and pretty painful. So I went to the hospital after having contractions like that for 2 hours. Well I was dilated to a 4 and 90% effaced, and after being at the hospital for an hour with contractions so bad I was throwing up in-between they sent me home with a shot of morphine. I couldn't believe it! I was so upset but what could I do. I labored at home for another 4 to 5 hours before I couldn't take it anymore! I went back where they checked me and I was dilated to a 5 and ready to be admitted and was given my epidural! After a few hours Oakley started having problems. Her heart rate kept dropping. It was because I was having 6 contractions in 10 mins and they were very strong and she couldn't handle it. They stopped my labor for 2 hours to give her rest. After my labor started back up and she was doing fine I finally reached a 10 and could start pushing at about midnight. I then pushed for almost 3 hours when she was finally born at 2:49am on February 4, 2010! It was by far the most painful exhausting thing I have ever done, but it was worth every bit of pain! I have my baby girl who I love more then I ever thought was possible! 

This is me when I went to the hospital for the first time.

Getting her shots was SO SAD!!! Made mom cry!


Oakley was blessed by her daddy on April 11, 2010! She did awesome! She didn't cry one bit during the blessing! Camden did such a good job and blessed her with so many wonderful things!



This is the face that I get to wake up to every morning! She is such a happy baby! Specially in the mornings! 

Oakley loves:
eating every 2 hours
when you talk to her
to stand when your holding her
loves to be faced out when your holding her
HER BATH
to poop! this girl poops SO MUCH
her swing

Oakley hates:
to wait for anything
is not a big fan of the car
when something scares her

she doesn't hate a lot of things because she is really a happy baby! She is the best little sleeper. She goes to bed between 9 and 10 wakes up to eat between 6 and 7 then goes back down till 9 or 10! 
I love her so much its crazy! I can't imagine life without her!

Getting Closer!

34 Weeks pregnant! 
I only have 6 weeks left till the due date! I can't wait but I am also kinda nervous! I have 6 weeks left of life as I know it! I know that my life is going to change so much! I don't know if there is anything to make you 100% ready but I hope I do a good job and adjust well! I hope that I am the best mom to my baby girl! I'm also really anxious for her to get here! I want to hold her and kiss her and just have her here! I can't wait to see what she looks like! I'm excited to be done being pregnant! My poor husband is really ready only because I have been a little more ornery and little harder to live with! Ha Ha!!! I snore now at night keeping him awake! haha. I just tell him you try to breath with a basketball in your body pushing against your lungs! I think though and I never thought I would say this but that I will miss being pregnant at times! I will miss feeling her move! I love that part! Other then that I don't think I will miss anything else! Hopefully these next weeks go by fast and maybe I will be a lucky girl and she will come a couple weeks early! Boy would I love that!

A little summer, fall, and baby!

So I know I have said this before but I am a terrible blogger! It has been so long since I have blogged about anything! Hopefully after I have my baby I will feel like I have more interesting things to blog about! Things with the Cooks have been going good! I am just working full time still at the salon and Camden is just doing the fireman thing! It's nice that summer is over cause I kinda feel like I have a husband again except now he just hunts, which is fine with me. 
    My pregnancy has been going good. I really can't complain about it. I would say the hardest thing about it has been the emotional, hormonal part. I have defiantly felt like I needed to be put on some sort medication at times to control my mood swings! haha Poor Camden, he has seen a different side of me through all this, and I really do good for the most part its just sometimes! I am defiantly anxious for our little Oakley Lynn to get here! It will be so much fun! I have started getting things for the nursery and getting it put together! This has been by far the most fun out of it all! So Here is a little sneak peak at what her room is going to look like. I still have a lot of things I want to do but it's starting to come together! 



Her curtains are freaking cute! 
26 Weeks pregnant!

Camden, Tron and I went for a hike just up the road from where we live. We didn't know this trail was even up there so we are glad we found it cause it's actually a nice little hike! 

I chopped my hair off and lets just say it was the biggest mistake I have made in a long time! I don't know if it was because I am pregnant and already emotional but it seriously sent me into a slight depression where I cried every single day for like 2 weeks straight!  Stupid I know... but really I will NEVER CUT MY HAIR SHOT AGAIN! haha! 

22 weeks!
Camden went on his big hunt again this year up in La Grande Oregon and got lucky this year. Shot this 5 by 5  just 4 days before the season ended! Good job baby!  
15 weeks
13 weeks
This summer we went on a camping trip to the snake river, and I am thinking camping area, trees, grass right near the river where you could jump in and swim, ya, NO it was terrible! It was really a trip for Camden and Cooter and I somehow just went a long with it. If I would have known what it was going to be like before, I would have never went. It was in July and in the 100s the whole time. We stayed in a freaking gravel pit. No cover, no grass, no nothing. Terrible! I was also just 8 weeks pregnant so when I got hot I got sick! The river was kinda near us but you just wouldn't want to walk down there and jump in and lay around. There was no really no spot to. 
Poor Tron, I thought he was going to die of heat stroke! 
This was our gravel pit! Nice huh! 
The only plus about the entire trip was that I caught a nice catfish!

Here is another little look at our baby! This is 10 days from the last ultrasound... I can't believe how much it has grown and and how it is really starting to look like a baby! It is starting to get leg buds and arm buds! I am falling in love with our baby more and more! Camden was there to hear the heartbeat and see it! I think it became a little more real to him! So anyways things are looking great for our little baby!

So it's been a long time!


So I know I am not any good at this! I haven't updated in a REALLY long time! The weird thing about it is that some really neat things have happened in our life that are must posts! So here we go! 

 Well I got to go home to Florida and spend 8 days with my best girlfriends from high school! It was a ton of fun!!! The weather was beautiful and the beach was amazing! 
Joann, me, Jenna, and Jessica!



Camden and I got sealed on our 1 Year anniversary! 
It really was a great way to spend it! We had close friends and family with us! It feels so much better knowing we will be with each other for eternity and that our children will be with us too... Speaking of children.....



WE ARE PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!!!! 
Baby Cook will be joining us February 4th 2010! (that's if I make it till then. Us girls tend to go a little early!)
This ultrasound was taken when I was 7 weeks 4 days. I know it's a little early to be doing ultrasounds but over the weekend we kinda had a scare with some spotting going on, so Monday morning they checked me out and everything looked great!!!! I even got to hear my precious baby's heartbeat! It was the BEST sound I have EVER heard! It made me realize how real this is and how amazing it is that I get to carry life in me!!! They also checked my HCG levels and they said they were over 100,000 and so that was good news too! 

I found out that I was pregnant on a Thursday night and waited to tell Camden on that Saturday. I was kinda shocked and wasn't sure how I wanted to tell him.. So I gave him a little present to see if he would catch on! He did before even opened it! It was fun! He is excited!

Now my parents have been waiting for a grand baby and I have known that I was going to tell them this way for a long time! I made a little official grandparents-to-be kit! Camden and I went up to their house Sunday morning and put it on the porch then rang the door bell and ran! The next thing you hear is my mom screaming!!! The whole neighborhood heard her screaming! It was so funny! She is so excited!!! Kent is too! It has just been fun all around!


Me at 5 weeks! How big will I go?
