But I am very amazed how "flatter" I feel already! ha ha ha
It was so funny when I took one of my "first" showers after baby....and I looked down at my belly...and i didn't see my belly and feel her moving around inside...I missed it a little bit!
Ofcourse I am so excited to be able to hold her in my arms....
but the their is something so MIRACULOUS about knowing that a precious little life is being formed inside you...with a little heartbeat and little hair growing, and little dreams and talents, and personality forming...

maybe because it's been a whirlwind of sleeplessness...hoping for a shower... up all night long watching cooking shows or home make-over shows, while I nurse this precious angel...wondering how many other mama's are up nursing their little angels too!
I woke up to see baby's "first snow" on the ground...
love and snowflakes and 1 week -oldness.....your kandee

you never realize how awesome it is to take a shower! (ha ha ha)
I even had time to blow dry my hair...what a treat!
After me and baby danced her to sleep today listening to Jack Johnson again...
we even had a visit from my grampa guy (he's my danish grampa)...who told me she was gorgeous and that I did a great job!
We ate cinnamon rolls..Jordan made the icing..delicious...and he won't tell me his recipe! ha ha
I then went to eat at Blaker's restaurant..where he asked, "what would you like to eat ma'am?"..."dupcakes" (cupcakes).....yes, I LOVE DUP-CAKES!
me and Blaker played trucks last night...he was so cute..he was working in his "workshop"...and said, "you can play with my trucks if you want to"...while he was busy working!
cinnamon rolls and cooking shows (because that's what I watch all night long while nursing! ha ha)...

and now...I'm trying to type this fast enough that I can get a shower in! hooray!
here's the first video (well I showed right after she was born, but it was dark and you couldn't really see her very well)...so here she is.....
PS I had some really cute pictures to upload...but my computer says it's ready to blow up...ha ha ha so I have to transfer files and delete a bunch of stuff before I can upload anything...oh Computer! ha ha ha
huge love from a very tired....kandee ha ha ha (I'm surprised I had enough energy to spell my name correctly! ha ha)

We had our first ALL night of cloth diapers last night...she didn't even cry with the cloth diaper change...and I started using little clothes of warm water, instead of wipes....(even the gentle-est, most all natural ones are really hard on new babies incredibly new and sensitive skin....happy girl...no rashes either!)
very little sleep...but I don't care...ha ha...this is how I look right this second as I type this!
I am off to see if I can take a shower or something fancy like that before she wakes up......
sleepless and loving it....your kandee

and then go to see right after...you get to see the first video of lil "cupcake"...while Daddy holds her...and you get to hear me in the background....
I love how I edited this video super tired...and spelled "hear" wrong at the end of the video! ha ha ha
(this is one of my favorite still shots...ha ha ha...I call this: Crazy Labor Hair!)
Labor is beautiful....the birth was absolutely incredible! I will do a separate video about my Home Birth...it was the most amazing birthing experience ever....after having 3 babies in hospitals...and this one at home...it was the my most incredible, gentle, beautiful and calm birthing experience ever! (I'll work on a video about it soon!)....
I have to tell you how precious each one of you are to me...from your beautiful words, which I read every comment...especially now that I'm up all night....I really have time to read every single one, very slowly, or mutliple times if I want! ha ha ha ha...
thank you for being a part of the excitement for this precious little "cupcake"... it was so much fun to share all of this with you....I can't wait to share the rest!!
huge hugs...from your kandee
Get ready to come with me....

As soon as I get time I'm going to edit the video from the day I went into labor...(never got a chance to finish that one! ha ha)
and i can't wait to tell you guys about my HOME BIRTH experience!
huge love from my heart that feels so HUGE with love,
your kandee and her cupcake!

i posted about...
thinking i should call my midwife on facebook and twitter at about 3:40 in the morning
and little Cupcake (who we still haven't picked out a name for...we have up to 30 days! ha ha ha) at 7:04am!
I'll give you all more details later...just sooo tired....
she weighed 8 lbs and 2 oz, was 21.5 inches long...and is perfect...
after she got "dressed"...thanks to "Nana Shannon"...she is still laying on the little sling that they weigh her with....
all the kids woke up a couple hours after she was born and were so excited to see her...even big brother Jordan....
I promise I will type more filling you in on all the fun details about everything from labor and everything else....I'm just a wee bit exhausted.....it's alot of work getting a cupcake out of the oven! ha ha ha..but worth every single moment!
Our Cupcake is here!!!! Just had to show her to you all......"our cupcake is here!"
huge love and a semi-deflated belly....your kandee and her cupcake
(Yes, I if there was a "hard-core blogger" award, I might win it for blogging just hours after baby was born! Ha ha ha)

BUT HERE is the video I've been working on since yesterday....
I still need to put the dishes away, do laundry....I still have unpacking to do...I need to upload one more video and I need to type one more blog!
ha ha ha....so I hope I don't go into labor yet!
Here's the video.......I can't wait for us all to see baby cupcake!!!!
I am so humbled and honored to feel all the love you guys send my way....I hope that you can just feel a fraction of the love I have for you too! Thank you for being my kandee family...! Can't wait for our cupcake to get here! xoxo kandee
#1 would be knowing when my princess, cupcake, or Princess & the White Stick, will be here!
#2. well it was on my wish list, I guess it still is...but when I saw the price...I think it will just have to remain on my wishlist! ha ha ha
My Dream/Wish Bag:
The Cake Society Satchel from Petunia Pickle Bottom
I saw the adorable girl in San Francisco carrying this bag as a purse...in green...
and then I found out it was a diaper bag! I loved it as just a purse!!!!
Not only so I love the vintage feel of the purse, something that reminds me of a funky Mary Poppins Bag....but I love that it says "CAKE" on it...call me a sucker for baked goods! ha ha ha
How cute is this bag! Maybe tonight I will just dream of toting this adorable bag around with my cupcake...how perfect...CUPCAKE and her CAKE BAG! ha ha ha
I will be posting an update video soon.......
I'm just too tired tonight....me and baby belly are so sleepy! huge hugs from me and my getting bigger belly...your kandee

this was me and my Jordan when he was little...
I think about when I had him...I was so young....
I had gotten married when I was 17 (like 3 generations of women in my family before....not the wisest of decisions...ha ha ha) and I didn't get married because I was pregnant or anything....I got pregnant months after we got married...
I had no idea how much love I'd have for this precious angel...
(CLICK HERE TO READ WHAT MY PRECIOUS "big" BABY SAID TO SOME UNKIND RACIST KIDS AT SCHOOL: www.kandeej.com, so proud of him!)
If not I have an appointment with my midwife tomorrow!
sweet dreams from kandee and her love belly!
