The first of everything.....

Cami had a very eventful week. She went to her first basketball game and loved it!!! Definitely her daddy's girl. She also went to church for the first time. She did great. I was so glad. I was nervous she would scream in the middle of sacrament or fart really loud when it was completely silent. (wouldn't be the first time) That's for another post :] Good times!!!

Very Blessed!!!

Steve and I have so much to be thankful for. We love being parents and we are so lucky to have our little " Cami Cakes" in our lives. I love being a Mommy. Never thought such a little thing could make us laugh and smile so much. Cami loves her wonderful Daddy. She smiles so much when he is around. I love it!!!

Growing up!!

It is so true that little babes grow up so quick. Cami is only 2 weeks and she is changing every day. She is such a sweet little girl.  She definitely  likes to keep her Mommy and Daddy awake during the night :} She is wide awake at 3:30 every morning and doesn't like to go back to sleep. She is such a blessing in our lives. We love you little Miss Cami Girl!!!

She loves to ride in the car. 

Our little Cami Girl is growing up way to quick. Everyday she looks different. We sure do love her

A note from the Mama!!!

It is fun to say that I am now part of the tough Mom's Club. Seriously I gained so much more respect for Moms. I think all agree that there is nothing more beautiful or wonderful than holding your baby for the first time. We sure have fallen in love quickly with our little babe. It hasn't even been a week yet but Steve and I can't imagine our life without our Cami Girl. We feel very lucky and very blessed.  She is our little ray of sunshine. I think Steve deserves "Labor Coach of the Year"  He was a huge help and I am really grateful for him. There is so much to LEARN!!!! In fact this is kind of embarrassing Cami had her first Dr. appointment. We get there and we realize we didn't bring her diaper bag. Then to make it worse. A super organized, super experienced Mom walks in. She is fully prepared with her super duper diaper bag. She pulls out the nail clippers, thermometer ,and even those plastic syringes.  First we felt very guilty then we laughed pretty hard. We will get better. ( I sure hope so )  

Steve and I find every second we can to SLEEP!!!

Yes, we are parents. Alli gave birth to our daughter, Cami Elizabeth Schaack on November 1 at 10:01 a.m. It was a long process as she was induced around 9:30 a.m. on October 31. She was 9 pounds 2.4 ounces and was 21 inches long. We are grateful she and mom are healthy. We are home now and excited to be out of the hospital. We love the dark hair she has. 

Here is one happy momma. Alli is a tough woman to go through 24 hours of labor. 

Cami is finally home. I think she is going to love riding in the car because when we left the hospital she was crying but the moment we started driving she fell asleep.

Here Grandma Meik is giving Cami her first bath since being home.
