month 1

Quincy -

you are now one month old. time has gone so fast and i cant believe that we have had you here for an entire month! you are already such a joy and i cant even imagine life without you. you are a very even tempered, content little girl. you dont cry unless you are starving or cold, like when you are getting your diaper changed with moms ice cold hands. but i think you are starting to get used to that. you dont like baths so i filled the tub and took one with you and you loved that. it was fun for me too. you are a great eater and dont spit up much. most nights you sleep 6-7 at a time and i feel like i have been spoiled. you are so little and dainty and are still in newborn clothes. i cant wait until you get to 0-3 months because we will have so many more outfits to choose from. we have had to borrow newborn stuff from friends and family. you still have lots of hair and dont seem to be losing any of it yet. i hope it stays, i love it. you smiled at dad today for the first time and he felt pretty special. he loves you alot and i can already see that you are going to be a daddys girl.
you have done alot of fun things your first month of life. when you were five days old we went to thanksgiving point with your cousins makayla and behlie and saw a bunch of farm animals. over the next 3 weeks we have gone to swiss days in midway, a byu football game in provo (which you slept through like a gem!), you went on a horse ride with dad and a 4 wheeler ride up and around the field in wallsburg. we went to a movie in park city with our good friends the bonners and camping one night with dad while he was hunting. we were out of propane so it made for a chilly night but we bundled you up and you slept like a rock. you have been wonderful during all of these events and have already enjoyed life to the fullest! you are very mellow and easy to take almost anywhere. i hope you stay that way. you have met the dogs a few times and are not sure what you think but they think you taste good. they insist on licking some part of your body every time they see you.
quincy, you are truly a blessing to us, a gift from god. we love you with all our hearts and are so happy that we are blessed to have you in our lives. it has been pure joy since you have joined us and we adore every little thing about you. there are many times that we just sit and stare at you, we cant get enough. you have taught us so much about love and patience and working together and im sure we will continue to learn from you. we look forward to months and years to come and enjoying every minute with you.

love you lots.

Quincy Lee Draper

our little one is finally here! on august 19, Quincy Lee was born. 6lbs 4oz 19.5 in.

its kindof a funny story how it all happened. the night before brady and i were watching a movie and i didnt feel well so i sat in the tub then went to bed. i got up the next morning and went to work. i was in a really bad mood cause i was not feeling well and was in alot of pain. but i was the only one there from 8:30-11 so i had to go. the whole time i was there i was in pain but i had a dr appointment at 2 so i just dealt with it. it was pouring rain that day so brady couldnt work and decided to come with me to my appointment. this is the only one he has come to besides the very first appointment and when we found out the gender. i was excited he was coming and thought we could go to lunch after the appointment.

when we got to the dr office they told me my dr was attacked by a house cat that morning and was in surgery! they asked if i wanted to reschedule or see the dr that was there. it was kindof funny because i have already switched drs once because my original dr was pregnant and went on bed rest. i wasnt feeling well so i decided to see the dr that was there. good thing because when she checked me i was almost fully effaced and dialated to a 5. she told me that i was in active labor and needed to go to labor and delivery right away. i cant even explain the emotion that ran through me! i was going to have a baby that day! i hadnt even had lunch yet and i needed to go back to work. all the sudden i decided that i wasnt ready...i wanted her to stay inside! i looked at brady and he was just smiling. we both couldnt believe that it was really going to happen right then. we walked over to labor and delivery and got checked in. i got hooked up to all the monitors and then sent brady home to pack me a bag. (he had been telling me to pack one for days but i never thought she would come early so i didnt have anything ready) while he was gone they put in the epidural and everything was grand after that! within 2 hours i was at an 8 and they broke my water. we waited for about 3 hours and then the pushing began. i pushed for an hour and a half and at 10:39pm little Quincy was here!

the whole birthing process was much more relaxed and laid back than i ever expected. everything went perfectly and she came out flawless! we are so thankful for a happy healthy baby. we couldnt ask for more.
