Earlier this year, Kristi and Caleb face timed with us and left Brynn with a special message to tell us--except then Brynn forgot what that message was, so then Kristi had to tell her again, and by then I had it figured out---Kristi had a baby in her tummy!! Pretty exciting for this family to celebrate our 1st niece or nephew and cousin!
In June, Adriane, Jess, and I threw Kristi and Caleb a baby shower--Baby Davis's gender was a surprise, so Layne made the baby cake like a quilt with a variety of colors! So glad he can decorate cakes so well--it comes in handy!
Above, Kristi is holding one of the burp rags from me--I picked a lot of different, fun, material, like camo, owls, polka dot, KU, and K-State and mom sewed them all up for me to give to Kristi!
Below is the blanket that mom knit for baby Davis.
Brynn was all about helping to unwrap all the gifts--here is the stroller and carseat that the Parry Family gave Kristi and Caleb!
The cute fruit buggy that Terri made!
Then on Aug. 5th, I received a text around 6:30ish in the morning that today would probably be the day--I knew Kristi had been having contractions off and on all weekend, so I was excited to call her and find out the scoop---the scoop was that her contractions were every 3 minutes apart, she was NOT feeling good, was slightly grumpy, and was worried that the hospital would send her home--not the case!
Mom and Dad were gracious enough to come watch our 3 kids while I headed to Mahattan around 11:00 to go be with Kristi and Caleb--by then, Kristi had had an epidural and was like a brand new woman--those drugs are amazing! Caleb was one thankful husband!
So I hung out with Kristi while Caleb went to lunch with his parents, we talked, updated family, Kristi texted, and talked to family as well--the Parry's were on their way home from Hawaii and Jake and Janell were in KS visiting some friends in KC--so Baby Davis had some great timing!
We found out Kristi was at a 7--so Caleb hurried back from lunch to finish out the waiting game!
Around this time, Kristi got a call from a lawn company to see about some sprinklers for their yard and about some new grass in spots--I was floored that she was having this conversation with this guy while she was in labor, but she said she had been waiting for several weeks to talk to him, so why not now! About this time, Kristi got to a 10 and it was time for action--Caleb kicked me out, so his parents and I hung out in the lobby answering phone calls and texts from family members and putting in our final bet rather it was boy or girl, time of birth, and baby weight! I won many of the categories, but right at the end I said boy--even though I was still thinking a good chance of a girl--oh well!
Then at 2:52 pm, this little bundle of joy was born--healthy and wide awake ready to Rock the World!
June Marie Davis was a little over 7 pounds and 21 inches long-
-Welcome to our World little June Bug!
Aunt Beth was honored to be there and love on you right away--your big hands and feet floored me and your wide awake eyes made me smile!
Uncle David forgot to get Kristi doughnuts, so I made him go get Kristi a strawberry shake--life is good!
A whole new world is just beginning for these two!
Time for hair washing and bath!
The Parry Grandparents made it to Manhattan by late afternoon to meet the newest grandbaby!
Wednesday--our whole family came down to meet baby June--Uncle Layne is pretty proud!
Caden and Brynn were both excited too--Caden is not sure about all these girls though...but luckily he still gets to be Kristi's only boy--for now :)
Since all the Parry family were in town--we all got together at Kristi and Caleb's for a yummy supper, time to meet and spoil June, and to see Jake and Janell! Quite a night for June's 1st night home, but it was sure fun to see everyone!
The Parry Family 2013
Welcome Home June--you are surrounded by a lot of people who love and care for you and wish you the very best in life--What a great blessing from God!
PS--she has given Kristi and Caleb a good run for their money these past couple months as June is fussy at times and spits up alot, but then she smiles and coos and life is good again!
