Zoey Anne Lenfert

Zoey Anne Lenfert was born during an emergency C-section on August 2, 2013 at 8:25 a.m.  She was breech and my amniotic fluid level was too low for her to flip on her own.  I had been in the hospital for 3 days on bed rest.  On August 2nd I woke up and found out I was in active labor, having mild contractions and was dilated to 5 cm.  They didn't want my water to break because of the fear that her cord would come out first and then she could get stuck, so off to OR I went.

Let me tell you, it was crazy, scary and unbelievable.  Within 1 hour of me telling them that I felt pressure and contractions, I was scrubbed and prepped.  I had/have an amazing OB and the staff at Clark Memorial Hospital were fabulous!  I was terrified, but yet calm.  Everyone (including my night nurse, who stayed over and scrubbed in to be with me during my c-section ... love Sarah!!) were so nice, explained everything, and were completely amazing!

My Mom had taken the day off to spend with me and entertain me at the hospital when they were moving me up to Labor and Delivery.  She got my Dad and even Nana Micki there at the hospital before Zoey made it.

Zoey Anne Lenfert was 6 lbs 8.8 ozs and 21 inches long.  She was 4 weeks early.  Enjoy our photos!  I have so many more that I truly love.






All pictures were taken by Carrie Hall.  She's amazing!

Big News

On December 21, 2012 a friend of mine (Kimberly) jokingly said take a pregnancy test.  I dare you.  Her's had just came up positive and she said she had a "feeling" about me.  I laughed and said "I'm not pregnant.  I'll humor you and take on tomorrow."

So bright and early December 22nd rolls around.  I get my little test, tested, waited the 3 minutes, then looked at Paul and said "Is this positive?"  He just looked at me, while holding Cora and said "Looks like it."

Uh who would have thought.  After everything we went through to get Cora, it was that simple.  So here's Cora with her big news for you:

Where has time gone???

Has it really been since May since I last posted?  Wow.  I have nothing to show for it....other than a crawling, constantly moving 8 1/2 month old lol.  I'll have to bring you all up todate. 

Cora is 8 1/2 months or 36 weeks 4 days old.  She has two beautiful teeth on the bottom of her mouth.  She is constantly on the go.  Once she figured out how to crawl, it's been nonstop!  I honestly don't know why I don't weigh a heck of a loss less than I do!

Anyway, I've been working on a few things but nothing major to show you.   Mainly getting things prepped for Cora's 1st birthday (yes I know I have a little over 3 months). 

I work 2 jobs now.  3 days at the law firm still and then 2 at a CPA firm where I enter payroll for different companies. 

Well, I think you are up to date.  I'll have to post pictures another time, I can't from this computer!

Lots going on....

So this year I have had it with the weeds growing between the stones in our back yard.  We don't have a big back yard.  The pool takes up a lot of room, then there was a lot of concrete.  Was being the key word.  Here are the before pictures.  






Then I got to thinking...I'm a plant killer.  I could water a plant every day and still kill it.  So, This area by the pool, well we're going to close it in and make it more deck.  



Then I got to looking...there were these planters when we moved in.  They collapsed the first summer we were in the house, so we took them down.  Now there is a gap between the deck and the fence.  Yup, you guessed it.  Might as well fill that in too.  


So, as you can see I have about 3 projects I'm juggling at once.  Not only am I juggling those, I've decided to get more organized.  I'm tired of stuff just laying around.  I decided to start juggling a 4th project.  This is the beginning of my organization heaven.  It's going to be hung in the kitchen.  






I'm sure I have other things going on, but for the life of me...I can't think of them :).  So when I remember, look out!  For now, I'm heading to bed along with the rest of the family!  I'm post more soon!

Throo the Zoo 5k!

Cora and I competed in our first 5k.  Well technically it was my third and Cora's 2nd, but this time she could watch everything lol.  The first year I walked it with Mom, the 2nd year I was pregnant and walked with my friend Candy, this year I jogged/walked it!  I did an amazing job if I do say so myself!  I'm so proud.  I ran 2 1/2 miles of the 3.1 mile course and if you have ever been to the Louisville Zoo, that's an awesome accomplishment with all the hills.  I'm still so proud of myself!!  Anyway, Paul and I are going to continue to run together as I have another 5k coming up in July.  Look out Louisville Color Run!!  Cora did great.  She slept pretty much the entire way.  She woke up around the last 100 yards because she heard people yelling.  I came in 1353 with a time of 39:08.0.  Paul's chip didn't read but his watch time was 26.12.0.  There were 2044 chips that read but I've heard that there were several that didn't read so I'll say I was in the middle of the pack lol. 

This weekend was very busy for us.  With the 5k under my belt, we then went to Dennis and Kathy's to celebrate Mother's Day with Grandma Lenfert.  We had brunch there and gave gifts to Kathy.  Then we headed out to Buffalo Trace Campground (if you haven't been there, I recommend it!).  Mom, Dad, Jared, Geoff, Scotty, Emily, Lily, Macy, Phil and Doris were all camping out there.  Jared had a double header (they lost :( ).  

The gifts that the Mother's received are as follows:

They also got an 8 x 10 from Cora's 6 month photoshoot.  It was so hard to choose because there were so many good ones.  I narrowed it down to 5 and then made Paul pick for his mom.  Here are a few of my favorites (there are 119 to choose from):





















See I told you it was hard to choose!

They also got something similar to this (for some reason it won't post my actual picture):


So there you go!  Hope all the moms had a fabulous Mother's Day!

Bananas, Squash, 6 months, oh my!

So begins the adventures of Baby Food and since I have oh so much time on my hands, the home made version.  This year I've decided to be more domestic.  Not only have I been cleaning everything I can, but I've been cooking almost every night, and now I'm throwing in baby food making. 

So as of April 26th Cora has had: Sweet potatoes, carrot ts, bananas, squash, pears, green beans, apple sauce, cereal, avocado, and prunes.  Carrots seem to be here favorite, avocados are her least favorite. 

She has started sitting up on her own, loves to be on her belly, and is trying to walk.  She gets her knees under her to crawl, but doesn't get very far.  She more vocal (oh boy!) and is a busy body.  She's nosey and doesn't like to miss anything.  She sleeps pretty good.  Goes to bed around 9, wakes up around 4, eats, then goes right back to sleep until 7 or so. 

She had  her 6 month photos taken today, when I have them, I'll share.  I can't wait to see how they turned out!  Carrie Hall was her photographer again and they were taken in Utica at Hidden Hills Nursery.  It was amazing and I highly recommend a visit.
