Welcoming Jameson Robert Knight

Jameson Robert Knight

12/14/2011 at 6:47pm

8lbs. 7oz and 22 inches long

When I headed to the doctor on Wednesday for my weekly Ultrasound and appointment with the doctor I was not expecting directions to head right to the hospital for an induction due to the drop in fluid levels since the previous week. So poor Trevor gets a phone call at work from me telling him to meet me at Southdale. They started the induction at 12:00 and slowly increased the meds, I got my epidural around 3:30, started pushing at 6:30 and we had our little boy out by 6:47.

Trevor got to announce the gender and his response was ...

"Holy Crap it's a Boy"

My parents brought the kids about an hour later to meet their new baby brother. Ben could not contain himself he was so excited!

Grandma and Grandpa "across the street" came, Emily and Katherine were there and Grandma and Grandpy Knight joined that night as well.
The kids came to visit again the next night and although Olivia was not sure what to think the first night she was so excited to hold her new baby brother on night 2.

Jameson looked pretty rough the first few days. He had swollen eyes from the drops they put in and a baby rash that the doc said was "impressive" that covered his whole body.

This is what the first few days at home were like... lots of lying around watching movies and relaxing.

Proud Daddy!

No surprise to us Ben has been loving every moment with Jameson. He can't wait for Mommy to bring Jameson to school so he can show all his friends.

Welcome to the Family Jameson!

She is 2 Years Old!

Olivia's Birthday started out with a Bang! Olivia came down with Croup on Friday night. After Trevor and I spent 2 hours lying in bed listening to her breath we decided to head to Southdale's ER. We got there at 3:45 in the morning. The poor girl had x-rays, meds and a shot but after that she was doing much better. We got home around 6:30 and she slept until almost 11:00. After some sleep and the drugs from the hospital she was ready to party.

There were so many generous gifts from family and friends. Her big brother was of course a huge help in opening them all.

She got these sunglasses from Grandma and Grandpy and she thought she was pretty hot stuff.
Happy Birthday Sweet Girl! Can't wait to see what the next year has in store for you.

Naughty or Nice?

Thanksgiving weekend we went to see Santa at Tonkadale Nursery. He is the BEST Santa. You don't have to wait in line and you actually get more than 30 seconds to talk to Santa. Olivia was a little afraid so poor Santa ended up with the WHOLE Knight family on his lap.

When the line slowed down Ben and Cullen had a little extra time with Santa.

Wonder what worldly advice Santa is sharing with these young minds?

Santa also wanted a picture with the newest member of the Knight family.
