We're Home

I just wanted to let everyone know that we are back home now and both Avery and Lauren are doing great. We would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers as we begin our new lives together. Please feel free to give us a call if you would like to come and see the Princess. I can honestly now say that I have never loved like I started to love at 10:08 AM on 1/28/09. Being a parent is the most amazing feeling in the world. Words simply can not describe the way I feel. We'll keep everyone updated, but for now I've got a baby to love and spoil.

We Have A Baby!!!

Princess Avery Jean King was born on Wednesday Morning, January 28th at 10:08 a.m. Our little girl weighed in at 6 lbs 11 ounces! She has long dark hair, her Daddy's eyes and lips, her Mama's nose, and the longest toes you've ever seen on a little princess! Mama woke up around 1 a.m. thinking that this might be 'it'...she woke up Daddy around 2, all were at the hospital by 4, and once everything got going, she came pretty quickly! Waiting to greet the princess upon her arrival were Shaynes Dad and Mom (Nana), Lauren's Dad and Mom (Paw Paw and Maw Maw), Aunt Devan & Aunt Paige (Shaynes Sisters), and Auntie Lee Lee (Lauren's BF). Both Mommy and baby are doing great, and Daddy has been so amazing and wonderful throughout the entire process!

The newest member of the King family will escort her parents up to room 590 at Memorial Mission Hospital, Asheville, NC.

Thanks so much for your prayers and support!
Avery says 'Happy Birthday to Me!!'

Any day now....

We had another doctor's appointment yesterday. I've dilated a whopping (drumroll please....) half a centimeter! So I'm up to 3 & 1/2 cm now...but on the bright side, the doctor said he didn't think I'd be pregnant much longer. He even looked into induction dates a week after my due date, but said he felt strongly that an induction wouldn't be needed. So we will see! It's up to Avery now :)

More baby showers!

The Waiting Game

Busy. That's probably the best word to describe the King household. We've had some great baby showers, have been washing and putting together baby stuff, cleaning house, packing bags, and so on.

Our last doctor's appointment was Tuesday the 13th. We found out I was dilated 3 centimeters! I was determined to take advantage of my doctor's knowledge and good prediction skills, thinking I could find out when to expect our little Avery. So when I asked him what 3 centimeters meant exactly, his response was "You won't have to be induced because you're late...that's all I will say." What?!? Not the response I was looking for. So now we're playing the waiting game, anticipating her arrival any day now!

My good friend Leah came one day over Christmas break to help me work in Avery's room. Doesn't she look like such the hard worker? :)

Christmas 08

We had a great Christmas! It came and went so quickly, but it was great spending time with our family and friends. It's hard to believe this was our last Christmas with just the two of us!
