Merry Christmas

I hope everybody had a great christmas. We had alot of fun this year. Dallas surprised me with a sewing machine and some clothes. I've been wanting to become more domesticated and what better way then to sew. Dallas got a new scotty cameron putter,and some clothes. Kamdyn on the other hand got more then she could've imagined. It helps to have grandparents so close. She got her first cabbage patch doll that surprisingly she loves it, she got a leap frog play table that plays in english and spanish. Dall is worried that she's going to become fluent and start yelling at us in spanish and we wont know what she is saying. And she just got lots and lots of clothes and toys. Santa was very nice to her this year.

On her 7 month birthday she cut her first tooth. Its the bottom left one. Its so cute when she smiles you can see this tiny little tooth. Kamdyn is growing up so fast and we just love her. Well we hope everyones holidays have been great and enjoy the rest of the year.

We also learned Kamdyn doesn't like waking up to madness. She needs her coffee in the morning!!

It's been awhile

So i know its been a really long time since i've posted anything i've just been really busy. I'm still working at the salon and I've also started working at the forum cosmetology school which i absolutley love. Its been a blast teaching people what i love to do. Dallas has been working really hard selling insurance. If anyone is interested let us know. Kamdyn is getting so big. She's 6 months now and is just the cutest thing ever. She is trying to crawl she's almost there. she starts off then face plants it. I think by the next week or so she'll be moving along. Not to brag or anything but she's also standing up by herself next to furniture and by herself. She's such a super baby!!!

so sorry its been so long since i've last posted. I get a funny feeling i'm posting for my own satisfaction. I guess whether people read this or not i'm keeping my own personal journal so i can go back and read this later in life. RIGHT? Anyways for anyone who does read this not much has been going on this past month. Hence the reason for not blogging. Lets see pretty much all that has happened is Dallas went on a 4 day golf trip down to Grand Junction CO with his dad and some guys. He had a lot of fun so i'm glad he got the chance to get out and do his male bonding. Then the week after Dallas' friend Jared and his fiancee Cathy came down from Oregon to hangout and golf. So it was another week of golfing. YEAH for us golfers huh!!!! So now that Dallas has had his month long fun I'm needing some input on where I should go on vacation. I'm going to drag dallas on a vaca somewhere but don't know where. It can't have a golf course within at least 100 miles of it. Thats my only rule.

Kamdyn is growing like crazy, my mom got the baby walker out of storage for kamdyn and I can't believe that she knows how to use it. The kid isn't even 4 months old yet and she thinks she needs to walk. Whats wrong with this picture. Either she is a baby genius or i'm just in trouble. Oh and I'm wanting to redo my kitchen I'm wanting to restain my cupboards a dark brown and put up a backsplash throughout. What do you think.

sorry i don't have any pics to put up. I've been horrible lately I don't know if its pure laziness or what. I promise i'll put some up

Our growing baby

Just this week I've been telling Kamdyn that she needs to start laughing and to my surprise she actually listened to me. Yesterday she laughed for the first time it was so stinkin cute. Plus we got her this johnny jumper thing which she absolutely loves. She's so funny she's so little yet she thinks she needs to stand up all the time so this swing is perfect for her.

Our little girl is growing up so fast....she's going to be 3 months old next week. So our little baby is no longer a little baby. On friday Kamdyn decided to sit up, sure it wasn't a 5 min long session more like 5 seconds either way she is getting so big. We love her so much and are so proud of her. Here are a few pics of her hope you enjoy.

Summer Fun

Sorry it's been awhile I lost my camera cord but found it. YEAH!!!! We've had so much fun with Kamdyn she's gotten so much better with not throwing up just whiney. She's smiling and cooing and its just so fun. Here are a few pictures of some things she's done this summer

Go out with mom and dad

Dressed up like a bunny

And my favorite...I watched fireworks

Tuesday, July 8, 2008

so we just got kamdyns pictures back that we took. they turned out adorable.

Dorton family update

So our little Kamdyn is now 7 wks old. She's getting so big! She still has reflux and is spitting up everywhere but everyday gives us hope that it will soon pass. We weighed her the other day and she is now roughly 9 lbs and 22.5 inches long. She's so cute. I've started back to work and its not so bad, its kinda nice having an out. I'm only working 12 hours a week, It gives me a little break from constant crying (although she is getting better at not crying). Dallas's job is going great he is such a good dad and husband I couldn't ask for more. He qualified for the state ameteur golf tournament so we're so excited for him. Maybe one day he'll go pro and make us millions.

Almost 2 wks old

So its been almost 2 weeks and I can't believe how time flies. Kamdyn is such a sweet baby she sleeps through the night, sometimes waking up once to eat. I couldn't ask for a better baby. She started smiling the other day probably just gas. She is just perfect. I absolutely love being a mom.

She's here!!!!

Our little Kamdyn is finally here. Sunday night around 11:30 I started having contractions (not much fun) and by 4:30 monday morning I couldn't take the pain anymore we went into the hospital. After 19 hours of labor and 4 hours of pushing she finally came out at 4:26 monday afternoon. She weighed 7 lbs 9 oz. and was 20.5 inches long. She is absolutely adorable she has black curly hair and is just gorgeous.

Baby News!!!

So I went in for our 40 week check and I've actually made some progress. YEAH!!!! I'm only dialated to a one which isn't the best but at least its something. and I'm 50% efaced. So at least its getting closer. The dr set an induction date for may 22 just incase i haven't had her. I'm crossing my fingers that i don't go that long. Dallas is getting very anxious for Kamdyn to come so it's making it even harder to wait. He's so excited for her to come.

Kamdyns Room

So I've recently painted Kamdyns room and it turned out perfect. I'm so excited about it. I just need to put up the border where the two colors meet. I hope she likes it as much as I do. So we went to the dr yesterday for my 39 week check and absolultely nothing has happened. So no baby this week. We go back next thursday for our next check up so keep your fingers crossed that something progresses by then. I guess I'll just keep working and keep active (maybe it will help things along)

Thursday, April 24, 2008

So we went to the Dr today for my 37 week check and absolutely nothing. Talk about depressing. I'm measuring at 40 weeks so hopefully she'll come soon. He's thinking she's around 7 lbs so I'm really hoping she comes soon. The thought of a 10 lb baby makes me want to cry. But on a happy note because of the size of my feet and legs he did say if I dialate to at least a 3 then he'll go ahead and take me. If anyone has any good ideas on how to get her out now I'm open to suggestions. Seeing how big my feet are you can only imagine what the rest of me looks like. Sorry everyone but no pics for now. I'm trying not to leave the house I don't want to scare anyone. I've been painting Kamdyns room hoping that will do something its looking really cute. Almost done then I'll post some pics. I'm so excited about it.

Wednesday, March 26, 2008

So yesterday we went in for our 32 week check up and we got such exciting news. This last week I started having contractions (very irregular ones though) so the doc did his thing and said that I am getting very close. Its a little too early for her to come so I've been told to sit and lay down as much as possible so I can make it through this next month. Once we hit the end of April he's going to let me go anytime. So Dallas and I are so excited. Our little girl could be coming in 4 weeks. I'm trying not to get my hopes up considering you never really know when there going to come. They'll come whenever they feel like it!!! Anyways other then that there really isn't too much going on. Just getting ready for Kamdyn to join our family.

Just an update!!!

So this past week Dal and I spent in Cali for one of Dallas's business trips. ( for those who don't know Dallas is now an agent with farmers insurance). It was so nice and sunny. I had the best time sitting by the pool working on my tan while dallas was in meetings all day. :( too bad for him it wasn't much of a vacation. So some updates on the baby. I've hit 32 weeks so not too much longer. She is kicking a moving alot. Its starting to get uncomfortable, but I'm sure its all worth it. We're so excited for her to come, we've got bets going on when she will come. I'm thinking around the 9th or 10th of May. Hopefully sooner!!! Pictures to follow.
