We love you little Saydee!

Saydee's first photo shoot

We just love big flowers and bows!

Smile little Saydee girl!

Dressing little girls is so much fun! Saydee had her first photo shoot with Grandma this week.

Reinforcements have arrived!

Is that Saydee's sister or her Grandma?

Saydee and Collin Plaisted
Saydee's first date. Collin wanted a goodnight kiss, Saydee wasn't havin it!

Saydee before and after her bath

Shelby's mom and little sister arrived on Sunday. Its very nice to have the extra help around the house. Saydee is doing great, she is eating and sleeping so well. We are so blessed because not only is she healthy, but also because her personality is so mild. She is so curious and calm which is nice when you have only had 3 hours of sleep at night.
We would also like to thank everyone for the comments and cards, we really appreciate it.

Day Two: Saydee Comes Home

Let me first of all say I am going to post a lot of pictures of her, primarily so our families can see her. Sorry about the redundancy =)

Looking good after a big baby

I don't know why but Saydee hated her little cart. Everytime we put here in it, she would cry.

People were so nice to give us flowers, Shelby's mom, my boss Paul Dye, and the Markham family

Sandy's flowers were Saydee's favorite!

Finally I got a picture with her eyes open, but then she closed them right away

Further proof she hated her incubator!

Daddy's girl

So here is what we know about Saydee so far...........
Filling her diaper
Nice Nurses
Pink Blankets
"What not to wear" and "Ten years younger"

Mean nurses that give shots
Changing her diaper
Taking off her clothes
AFL football

P.S. We decided to name her Saydee Ann Sutarik instead of Saydee Maree

Saydee Ann Sutarik Has Arrived!

Daddy gets to hold Saydee for the first time.

Mom and baby are doing great!

Here is baby Saydee about 2 minutes after being born. (bottom)

We have decided that Saydee definetly has her mom's nose and ears, and her daddy's love handles- She was 8 lbs 10oz !!!

9 cm!

We have been here at Madison Memorial Since 10:00 pm last night. Shelby is now dialated to 9 cm which means we probably are going to meet Saydee very soon!

Shelby has done amazing, even when the epidural wasn't working the way it was suppose to. She is resting comfortably without any pain.

Rexburg Airshow-Visitors from Provo-Baby Update!

We had a very exciting weekend, Wes and Jennifer Harris (Jenn seen in the picture with Shelby) came to visit us from Provo where Wes is a graduate student. While they were here, the Annual Rexburg Airshow was going on, so we were able to see some cool planes.

Here I am standing next to a B-25 bomber
P.S -I don't think I have ever seen so many mullets in my life! Living in Idaho teaches an important lesson: Three things attract mullets, airshows, free firework shows, and state fairs.

Shelby has been having "little" contractions since 5:00 am this morning. This might be it!

Visitors from Chicago

We had some visitors from Chicago here the other night. The bishop from Ted's home ward and his wife stopped by while dropping their daughter off here at BYU-Idaho. It was fun to talk about the crazy Chicago accent, deep dish pizza, and the "ghetto" where Ted grew up. :)

Baby Update!

Here is what's new with baby Saydee:

Shelby is dialated to 3 cm, and the baby is in perfect birthing position.

We decided with Dr. Meredith that if Saydee isnt here by next Thursday, June 19, then Shelby will be induced that morning!

Rexburg Weather

Check out this sweet rainbow that was right outside our door a few days ago

This sunday Ted was released from the bishopric which means he will actually be able to come home after church for the first time in a year and a half.

Ted was sad and excited at the same time, sad because he won't be able to get to know the members like before, but happy, because he has more opportunity to be at home and get ready for Saydee to come!
