Paint Party!

Paint Party! 0

This is the first Spring Break in a long time that we haven’t gone on vacation.  So mama and daddy have tried to make it special for Gabriella and Olivia by doing at least one major activity everyday this week.  So far, they have gone to see the Tulsa Oilers, a late Chinese New Year celebration and Aunt Melanie’s birthday party, to see Cinderella, to the TulsaPAC to see the Chinese Ballet, bowling, and laser tag! Today’s activity was turning our living room into a paint party studio.  Noni and Papa came over painted with us too.  It was a blast.  Too bad Little E couldn’t paint.  She had fun getting passed around while we painted though.

Today was the last day of school for the girls before Spring Break kicks in.  Noni and Papa picked them up from school and it’s been raining all day.  Of course they came in to see Eva for a bit and ended up staying for dinner.  Hooray.

With all the winter weather, it’s been a while since Noni and Papa have been able to make it into town to see Eva.  They came over for dinner tonight and we were all so glad to see them!

Today, Noni came by to see Eva and let daddy go to work for a little bit.  Mama got to catch up on some laundry and bills while Noni kept Little E content.

Born Day

What a day January 21, 2015 was.  Mama and Daddy had just turned out the lights to go bed.  It was 1:30AM.  Boom.  Mama’s water broke and it was time for Eva to arrive.  We called Noni and Papa, so they could come over to the house and stay with sisters, Gabriella and Olivia and we called Gammie to let her know it was time too!  Mama and Daddy scrambled around the house to get all the last minute things together and the car packed up.

At 3:25am, Noni and Papa arrived at the house.  35 minutes later, around 4:00AM, we left for Saint Francis.  It only took us 15 minutes to get there.  Noni followed us there, with Gammie not too far behind (thanks to a ride from Aunt Melanie).  At 4:30AM they got momma into a room and started the testing to make sure her water had broken (Of course it had. This isn’t our first rodeo!)


It was a long 12 hours from there.  After the epidural, mama had plenty of contractions and lots of laboring.  There was pushing and struggling, and mama and the doctors did everything they could to get Little E to come down, she just didn’t want to come out.  The womb was just too cozy!  The decision was made, for the health of Eva and mama to move to the surgery room and deliver her by C-Section.

Around 4:30PM, sisters, Gabriella and Olivia arrived at the hospital, anxiously awaiting the arrival of their new sister:


At 6:36PM Eva Grace Eng was born.  She was 8lbs, 2oz and 20.5 inches long.

Here she is getting cleaned up, only a few minutes after delivery:


Here she is, getting warm.  All bundled up and sporting a cute little beanie:
