Bree Taylor Cook


She's finally here! Our beautiful Bree was born on March 12th at 12:37am. She was 7 lbs 4 oz and 20 inches long. We are so thankful for this new little spirit in our home!


I went into labor Tuesday night and it was 6 hours start to finish. By far my quickest labor, but probably the most painful!! I barely made it to the hospital in time. We got there at 11:20pm and she was born at 12:37am. Just 6 pushes and she was out! Yes, there was time to get my epideral, thank goodness! Here are some pictures of us at the hospital and then a few from when we came home. Thanks to all our family and friends that were able to help us while we stayed at the hospital!

Oh yeah, the night I went into labor Justin and Gunner went to the Suns game. It was Gunner's first game and they had a great time together. Gunner had  a blast eating popcorn, candy, fruit drinks and cheering with the crowd as well as looking for the Suns gorilla. And, yes, I told them to go that night. Justin didn't want to go and leave me while I was having contractions, but I was sure I wouldn't have the baby until he got back. They came home shortly into the 4th quarter which was good because an hour and 45 minutes later we were at the hospital.  Justin said Gunner was quite the hit at the game.  As they left and walked up the aisle he gave a few high fives and "pounded the rock" to some of the other fans and said GO SUNS!  



Here's a few more pictures of Bree. I am loving having this beautiful little baby girl to dress up, put bows & bracelets on and it's especially sweet to see how spoiled she is already by her Daddy. We love you Bree and are so thankful you are in our family!

She had this bow on during her whole stay at the hospital. The nurses nicknamed her "the flower girl."

What a doll baby! She is sooo cute! She was born on my brothers birthday. Sounds like Justin got home just in time. Embry was so fast I didn't have time for the epidural, good thing she was small. Can't wait to meet her!

Kari! Congratulations! Bree is simply delicious. That's neat that you used the family name "Taylor" for her middle name. I'm glad it was a short labor...I'm sorry it was your most painful. I can tell she's already like a little paper doll for you - aren't girls so fun to dress up and accessorize? And you look GORGEOUS! Congrats again!
