As you can imagine I finally had my baby.. (skip this post if you dont want to read a long baby story=)

He was due monday 10/10 and i had a doctors appointment that day.. The doctor asked me me how about we have this baby tomorrow at 8am-an inducement.. I was ecstatic but so nervous. I have never been induce and i really never wanted to be. All my babies have been born after their due dates.. but i wanted to be able to call my mom and have her drive down here ahead of time.. planned out and no worry instead of calling a neighbor in the middle of the night and waking them up. (which i had people who were willing i just didn't want to bother them. they all have kids and families of there own to take care of) anyway, to make a long story short. my mom drove down that day and i cleaned and organized like a mad women all day.

That night ~1am i went into labor! I timed contractions for an hour and called the doctor.. (poor nicholas had been up watching a movie until midnight and had barely gone to bed when it was time to go! lol! ) The contractions came fast and hard 4min apart and we had an almost 40min drive to pueblo where i was delivering. I told nick if he made me miss my epidural (as he was sluggish getting out the door and in the car) i would NEVER forgive him.. He made it the hospital in 20 min..
So.,.. of course i get there and the contractions pretty much stop. Very mild and infrequent. they admit me anyway because i am the ONLY one there in the maternity ward and i am due to come in in just a few hours anyway. So we try and sleep and i get my epidural. yeah i was NOT going to miss that. i dont even think i needed it but i was GOING to have in NO MATTER WHAT.
The doc came in to see me early morning and said he had a surgery to get to and he would call when he was half way done for the nurse to start some pitocin to get me going more. well we waited and waited for the phone call and in that time my body decided to just go ahead and get started on its own. So then they were worried about doc even making it.. But He came just in time and 3 pushes later i had a beautiful baby boy! (did i mention he was kicking my guts the whole way out! the nurse said in her 12yrs as a delivery nurse she had never seen a baby do that!)

BRENNON LOYAL BLAIR 8lbs 10oz 21.5 inches long Now i know why he was such a kicker! he has the biggest feet i have ever seen in a baby!

So thats my story.. I actually went in to shock after he was born because of low blood pressure i had to wear a fall risk bracelet for all the nurses (i faint easy) But i spiked a fever and my body shook for three hours after he was born. I couldn't even nurse him or hold him i was shaking so badly. But soon enough the fever went down and i could enjoy him and rest!

I am so grateful everything happens for a reason.. I am so glad my mom was there and that baby is safe and healthy. I am home now brennon is 5 days old and getting into a feeding schedule. Tessa and Dallin love him and Nick and my mom are constantly at battle who get to hold him! lol!

In case you didnt believe me when i said i was HUGE!

Thats right..
i still have 6 wks to go.. Dr ordered me a third ultra sound because he was afraid the baby was already 5 lbs at 28 wks!! But nope he was only 3lbs.. that's big 70% but not enormous. I do weigh now what i weighted when delivered both the others (tess & dall) ... dr said this will be my biggest baby.. but Ive heard dr's saying that before then people just delivering 6 and 7 pound babies.. i am not too worried about it.. i am feeling fine.. so here i am! 34 wks

Also, its a boy 4 sure! I am due 0ct 10th but i really hope i delieve on the 8th.. The 8th of Oct would have been my dads birthday.. he died of cancer when i was 11.. We are going to name our baby probably Brennon Loyal. Brennon (because nick had a dream we had a boy and his name was brennon and Loyal is my dads first name) so.. we will see!

End of Summer update

I am big, huge, & enormous and still have 6 wks to go.. I am more than happy for summer to be coming to and end.. the heat has been a killer this year! So whats been going on with us?? Well a lot of bdays.. Tess of course in july and my boys both had bday in august!!

Dallin turned 3 and I decorated my first cake.. usually i just frost it and throw a toy on top.. but this time i went all out.. took me 3 hours.. it was fun.. i think it actually almost looks like "blues".

THEN NICK TURNED 30!!!!! The kids were so excited for his bday! we attacked him with silly string when he got home from work..

The kids love birthdays so much.. i try my best to make it fun for them. They help make cakes, cards, banners, and wrap presents and always hide to surprise ya!

what else... not much.. nick is busy school is starting back and Tessa is starting kindergarten soon.. She has a group day next week and than starts full time on the 6th of September.. she is so excited! and ready.. she gets to ride the school bus and she is picked up last in the morning and dropped off first.. i am trying my best to get as organized as possible since i know i only have a few more weeks before baby comes and everything falls apart.. my garden is finally coming along great and i am impressed with the results.. i get about these many tomatoes every other day!! its a good thing my mom came up this week and taught me how to pressure can! now i can make spaghetti sauce!

Spring Pictures & Mothers Day

what a mothers day!
All I wanted was family pictures and a Sunday ALL together! I got that plus more! Nick offered to make me breakfast in bed, but I opted for a sleep in morning! While I was sleeping nick and kids made me my favorite cake and cleaned the house! I was so happy just to have him home and to be able to ride to church together! We always have to drive separate and we live ~30min from church. So that's hard.. But not mothers day! here are some cute pictures of the kids..

You know I am not much of a photographer (the cute kids make it easy and our beautiful forest.) but i love these shots! I had such a wonderful mothers day! I hope all you moms out there got some pampering! who wouldn't want to be a mom??!?!? when you get smiles like these!

whats been going on...

whats been going on with us...

not much! lol!

lots of wagon rides in the nice spring weather

dress up days with Nathan...

making pictures of brother...

Nick has been super busy and work and thats been such a blessing. But hes also been super busy with his calling.. For example this weekend he spent the night friday night camping with the scouts. Then came home ran some errons came home just in time to get ready and leave for the stake dance.. (1am comes home) Sunday meetings before church meetings after church comes home, eats and off to a church youth meeting (BYC)! I wish i was as good as serving as he was!

As for me.. I am not busy at all. Kind of lonely and bored.. its been really nice though.. in fact right now its 7:30 pm and 77 degrees. I planted some flowers and continue to dream about house plans and building.. Came really close to getting a baby goat but decided I didn't want to wake up to bottle feed it every 6 hours. Thought tessa and dallin havent stopped talking about it. I said tessa how about a trampoline in stead? or a 4wheeeler! her response was how about a dog.. WHY WHY does it have to be living.. lol! I know the animals are coming soon. I am just not ready! Dallin has turned into a terrible 2 and i am so exhausted from him! he is needy, whinny, and just plain hard! SO... maybe ill have something more interesting to write about later.. sorry. lame post..
