4 Months

On Monday, Karis turned four months. It's hard to believe. She rolled over for the first time on Nov. 8th and now we can't stop her from rolling. She is holding her head up strong and trying to sit up sometimes. I don't have my camera here to download pictures but she getting bigger and more beautiful as the days go on. Some people say she looks just like me when I was little and some say she looks just like Graham. My mom has decided that Graham and I must have looked a lot a like when we were babies (I am not sure how to take that :-) She without a doubt has my blue eyes and Graham's nose. We see signs of red in her hair so we think she might have strawberry blond hair like Graham.

I hear my baby crying so I must go but I hope all is well in blogland. If I don't write, I hope everyone will have a great Christmas!

3 months, 1 year and eternity

Karis turned 3 months on the 24th, she is growing so fast but she is learning everyday and doing new things that it makes it a little easier to deal with it. Here is some recent pictures:

I know I am very late but last month on the 15th of September Graham and I celebrated our 1 year. A lot has happened in this past year, within the first month of marriage I became pregnant so not only did Graham had to get use to dealing with a wife that is adjusting to marriage but an hormonal one at that. Then after getting pregnant, Graham lost his job 7 months later and then hurt his back at the next job. We have grown and learned a lot together. I wouldn've done it with anyone else. Sorry, we don't have a picture for our anniversary.

On September 21, Karis was baptized (thats the eternity part :-) ) It was really funny, we were standing at the front with her Godparents and the pastor when to open the baptismal font to sprinkle here with the holy water and there was no bowl or water, everyone cracked up laughing. Then after that for every baptism at church they all made a joke about having water. Here is a picture, she wore my baptismal dress:

Yikes, I have taken to long and my baby needs me. Sorry, can't write much more talk to you guys again soon.

Karis' first play date

I have a really good friend that was due 5 days after me, we laughed that it would be funny if we were in the hospital at the same time. Guess what! Guess who showed up ready to have her baby just after I had given birth to Karis. She had a boy, named Ethan. Here is a picture of Karis and Ethan at there first play date. I love how Karis is smiling, and Ethan is like what is this creature beside me.

6 1/2 weeks

Karis as the princess she is. We took this picture at Granville island today. I just love the look on her face, it's like get this thing off of me.

Sucking her trusty soother, we tried to get her to suck her thumb but she likes her soother better. This picture was taken last night.

Grandpa putting her to sleep like nothing.

I can't believe my baby is this old. She is growing like crazy, how do you slow them down? She is a wonderful baby, she sleeps well, she is letting me sleep 6 hours straight every night and she eats well. She loves to cuddle.

(Sorry I couldn't rotate it) Graham is wonderful at getting her asleep. He is such a wonderful dad, I had no doubt. Her grandparents are going crazy spoilinng her rotten but she deserves it. I love her so much!

She has arrived!!

Sorry, for not blogging sooner but trying to get to a computer has not been easy. Karis Christina Kullman was born on July 24th at 4:38 in the morning, she weight 9 pounds and 2 ounces. I was induced on the 23rd and by 7 that evening my water had broke, except it was no fluid but blood and clots so we called the maternity ward and they said call the ambulance, so I had my first ambulance ride. Her head was big and my pelvis was too small and there was a moment when her heart rate went down and we almost had to have an emergency c-section but the doctor used the vaccum and we got her out. She is the most beautiful baby, I see Graham in her and me, she is not fussy, loves to snuggle. I can't believe loving someone this much.

No baby- July 20th

I think she listened to me when I told her she is staying in till she is 18. Kids really do hear everything you say. Doctors say that she is healthy, doing fine. She just doesn't want to come out now. She still hasn't fully engaged, two possible reasons, I have a small pelvis (the one with big hips, I don't believe that) or she has a big head, like her father. I choose the second. If nothing happens I am scheduled for an induction to get the ball rolling. Then we will know if her head is too big.

Don't worry we will notify people when something happens. We have been getting a lot of calls, and we have to answer the phone everytime with "no baby yet." We are seriously thinking of putting that on our answering machine.

Hopefully, next time I blog will be with news. I know I said that last time.

July 9th

No baby yet. But the head is engaged and that means anytime now. She better not come late because I am ready to meet her. I am ready to have my body back, to be able to roll over in bed and not feel like a egg. I like the weather the way it is now but not last week. When it was so hot, I had to find some water so Gray and I went to the waterpark in Walnut Grove, you should've seen the looks we got from the parents, they were all looking for any kids that belonging to us. I did not care!

With the heat my feet have swelled up a lot so the doctors put me on more rest, I guess I was too busy getting my house organized. Once I relaxed, I got a cold so thats what I have been doing laying on the couch watching the first season of lost. I am hooked now.

I just thought I would check in. Got to go. Hopefully next time there will be news of a baby.

June 20th Last day of work

Today is the last day of work, I am taking advantage of the computer since we will not have one.
I can't believe that I get an whole year off, I have been here for 5 years, seems really surreal to me.

The last couple of months have been busy with doctors appointments and all that jazz. Graham and I are excited we found out that we are having a little girl. Graham has already stated that he will dawn a pink tutu and dance with her if that's what she wants. Graham is already pudding in her hands and she hasn't even been born yet.

3 more week and I am so excited. Right now I feel like a blimp, and I can't wait to be able to roll over in bed without feel like an egg. Sorry no pictures, I don't want to. Although I am still a little nervous about the labor part but like everyone says, you just do it and forget the pain once your baby is born. I know that Graham is going to be incredible supportive during the labor, he has been since the beginning. I think the hardest thing for him is going to see me in pain.

I will try to post pictures when little baby Kullman is born but it will be a couple of days maybe weeks but I will have more time to go to my parents to blog.

Just thought I will give you guys an update on things since it's been a long time. Talk to you in a couple of weeks with the good news.

Yes, I am alive

Yes, I am alive, very much alive just haven't felt like blogging. I guess I haven't had the words to say or really didn't want to let this out into the world but I am pregnant, just starting my fifth month. Yep, me a Gray don't do anything slow! We were both shocked and nervous but God knows the plan and he is never late in his timing. Don't expect pregnancy pictures, I just don't want to. Little Kullman is due July 12. We are both over-the-moon now that the shock has worn off.

I am feeling great but I wasn't at the beginning, morning sickness turned into all day sickness, still have it but with medication it calms it down. And this is the biggest shock of all, Pickles the Fat Hobbit has an aversion to pickles right now! I hope that goes away. I thought this is the one time I could really chow down on them, isn't that irony!

I have weird cravings, one week it was Subway sandwiches, the next week Big Macs. Hardest thing to give up is coffee, I guess I have to admit that I was junkie, oh and I have had this huge craving for red wine!

Next month we will be going for our Ultrasound, we will be finding out the gender but I am not sure if we will tell people. Graham has a hard time containing his excitement.

But I got to go.
