Kennedy Jane Allred

I guess now that she is six and a half weeks I better announce our newest arrival! Kennedy Jane Allred was born on November 21, 2012 at 4:48 pm.  She is the prettiest thing I have ever seen and we have fallen more and more in love with her every day! Kennedy weighed in at 8lbs 1oz and was 20 inches long.  She was born strong and healthy and with a strong set of lungs.  I was in labor for 12 hours and pushed for almost an hour.  It was a very long day but I couldn't have done it without an epidural.
Kennedy is very loved by so many people! She is usually a very good baby and only cries when she is hungry or tired.  She still gets her days and nights mixed up, but its okay she is so worth it! She is starting to smile and really look at people when they are talking.  I'm so excited for this next stage in her life! The newborn stage was fun but I cant wait to see what else is coming.  Her smile is so adorable because she has the biggest blue eyes that just sparkle when she smiles! She is definitely the same baby that was inside me though because she still ALWAYS has the hiccups.  She absolutely hates them.  Kennedy loves her baths! I think she would stay in her bath all day if she could.  She loves swimming around and loves the warmth of it. On that note she hates being cold! So after her baths its a race to get her dressed.  Kennedy has just a little bit of hair on top but has a big time mullet! She has the prettiest skin and is such a beautiful baby! She takes a pacifier very well which is super nice especially at night.  She loves being held and loves to cuddle, which is probably one of my favorites.  Right now she is a mamma's girl, but I think that's just because I'm her source of food.  She has been a huge joy in all our lives! Whenever someone comes in contact with her they fall instantly in love! Kennedy is definitely an angel sent from heaven! She has been such an amazing blessing to us! I'm so not excited with how fast she is growing and how big she is already, but I know that every new step is fun and just as exciting.  She loves looking around at everything and has always been super alert! We love you Kennedy an we are so grateful for you!!!  
And now for a picture overload!!
Right before having my baby!!!

My first time meeting sweet Kennedy!!!
