1 month

 I can't believe that it has already been a month! Time really flies by, especially when you are busy taking care of two kids now.

It is sure different with two. It is a big adjustment. I am glad my mom was here for a while to help me. I don't know if I could have done it myself, especially that first week. She was such a big help, especially with Cameron. He needed that attention and she gave it to him. He loved having Dee Dee here to play with.

It is amazing how different the two of them already are. Cameron was such a good baby. It didn't take long to get him on a schedule and sleeping through the night. Taryn is a lot fussier. She spits up a lot more and when she does it is a lot. We actually took her to the doctor to see what is going on and found out that she has acid reflux. She is now on medication. She hasn't thrown up in a while, but still a little fussy. I hope that the medicine works soon so I can have a happy little girl.

She was weighed at the doctor's office to make sure she was gaining and she weighs 8 lbs 5 oz. She has already gained 2 lbs! I was worried she wasn't getting enough fat, but she obviously is. I am happy she is growing. She is getting bigger everyday and I can't believe how fast time flies.

I am back to work :( but we have to pay the bills. Tyler takes care of the kids at night so he is trying to get used to that. Hopefully the kids won't drive him too crazy.

We do love having her in our family and can't wait to see what she will be learning next.


 Here is our little Taryn Voris. She was born April 27, 2012 at 4:32 pm. She is our new bundle of joy.

I guess I will give a little background as to what happened. On Wednesday, the 25th, I went to the doctor to make sure all was okay. I wasn't dialating. I was barely at 1 cm. He was asking me about being induced and we were going to set it up for that next Monday. As he was checking everything, he noticed she wasn't head down. I started tearing up because I knew what it meant and I was scared. I didn't want to have to get her turned. I have heard so many horror stories about how much it hurts. He told me we would set it up for Friday. They would give me an epidural and then turn her. I was glad I would be numb for it.

We arrived at 6 am at the hospital. At 7, they finally came in to give me my fluids. At 7:30, the doctor arrived to check on her. She flipped back down! I was so relieved. The doctor went ahead and broke my water to make sure she would stay down. That was something I don't want to have happen again while I am not numb. It was not a pleasant feeling. It didn't help being in so much pain anyways.

The nurse gave me the petocin at 9 am because I hadn't started contractions on my own yet. At 9:30, I got my epidural ( I'm not very good with pain lol). I finally started dialating and was able to sleep a little bit. About 3:30 pm, I was starting to feel a lot of pressure. I called the nurse and she came to check on me and I was at 9 cm. She called the doctor to let him know I was ready. He was driving from another hospital so I had to not push. It was so hard not to.

The doctor finally arrived at about 4:20 and she arrived at 4:32 pm. She was 6 lbs 5 oz 19 inches long. She has dark hair and blue eyes. She is so beautiful and we love having her here in our family.

Cameron loves his little sister. I was so worried how he would react. He wants to kiss her and hold her all the time. We have to tell him to give her space so she can breath lol. I am so glad he loves her. I just hope he continues to.


This year for Easter was a little bit more fun. Cameron is older so we can start having more fun with him. On Saturday, our neighborhood had an Easter egg hunt. It was hard when there are so many kids his age in a small area, but he got a few eggs. Hopefully next year he will do better. He keeps talking about finding the eggs so that is a good start.
We were able to dye eggs that night. I got an idea off of Pinterest to help Cameron dye eggs and it actually worked! You put the egg in a whisk and put it in the cup. That way you don't have to worry about them dropping the egg and it breaking (even if it is boiled). We also used kool aid to dye the eggs. It wasn't too bad. It was harder to get perfect colors, but for 20 cents each, not too bad.
Sunday morning, the Easter bunny left a trail of plastic eggs leading to the Easter basket. Cameron wasn't sure what to think until he saw his basket and it was full of candy. I think the Easter bunny might be a little more tricky next year. That afternoon we went over to Shad and Brittany's for dinner and was able to spend time with them. Always nice to have some family close by to spend time with. I hope next year will be a little bit more fun with Cameron being older.
