Car seat safety week

This week is car seat safety week! Check out Baby Gizmo for more information on how to keep your kiddos safe.


Here we GROW again…

We finally did it. Kohen Kenneth Soukup was born July 20, 2012 at 8:08 am. He weighted 9 lbs 8oz. Our little bundle has been doing great and is healthy as can be. Mom is getting as much sleep as possible and is recovering well. Dad is a bit of a baby hog! lol and loves to snuggle with baby in the recliner.

1 week old       9 lbs 5 oz  –  21 1/2 inches long

                                                                                                               Week 2   –    9 lbs 14 oz   –    21 1/2 inches

Such a big brother!! Brody is doing great, he is such a great help and loves having Kohen around. He loves to tickle his feet and sing twinkle twinkle.

32 Weeks and Counting…

We have finally set the date for Baby Kohen’s arrival. Yes, Kohen Kenneth Soukup is set to arrive via cesarean on July 20, 2012. After touring the hospital and filing for his birth certificate we have decided to announce our baby boy’s name to both family and friends.

We are so excited to meet him and in just 7 weeks he will be in our arms

At our 30 week check up Kohen was measuring 5 weeks big, so our OB sent us to get an emergency sonogram. We hadn’t seen him since our  21 week gender reveal. He ended up measuring in the 71st percentile at 3lbs 12 oz. With just an average amount of fluid they concluded that he will probably be a large baby like Brody. We got to see him kicking around and at one point his mouth began to move. The Tech said that he was drinking my amniotic fluid for food.

We took some family maternity pictures in Jarred’s family wheat field. Which seemed fitting since Kohen will be born in Kansas.

The wooden house is where Jarred’s dad, Jerry, grew up as a boy. Some of the original house is still standing.

Hello world!

Okay I am going to be honest.. This is not usually my kind of thing. I am a blog follower not a writer. I decided to join the BLOG Bandwagon so that we can let all of our friends and family in on our day to day activities. Facebook just isn’t cutting it and I am sure that if you have not turned my status’ off yet you would with another baby on the way. Pictures of the day… and every drool, nose picking, exciting event will soon be posted.

Now to get you caught up on all of the craziness… Jarred and I began our incredible journey as husband and wife on September 3, 2011. On that day with friends and family present we made a promise to each other to Love, and Cherish one another. To always keep each others Love Tank full and to be by each others side through thick and thin. The Love that Jarred and I share is like no other. We face obstacles that most marriages will never face. Everyone says the first year is the hardest: I believe the first year is the best and most convincing. We have laughed, cried, argued, loved, smiled, and in all of those emotion we managed to create a life together. These last 10 months have proved to me that it truly takes marrying your best friend to make it through what you could never imagine doing alone.  Our family isn’t perfect, it’s not ideal for most couples but it is who we are. Mr. & Mrs. Jarred Joseph Soukup, of Olathe KS.

Today we are exactly 30 weeks pregnant. Expecting our next addition to the Soukup family July 25, 2012. In just 10 weeks we will get to meet our little guy and add him to our growing football team. He will be one of 3 boys… yes i know, I am surrounded by testosterone, wieners, dirt, and boogers. My patience will be tested as well as my inability to take them shopping for dresses, or make pretty bows. I see a lot of peaceful pedicures in my near future as well as a supportive husband who will definitely need to learn the phrase “SPA DAY” aka mommy alone time.
