fun summer

It has been a fun summer, Justin loves going to his grandparents (whether it is Grandmas or Nana) at Grandmas house or as he says "Lisa's house" he loves to swim in the "poo-yo" which is obviously the pool. He loves playing with the day care kids and going to shoot dinosaurs like a little boy would. He is a big help when it comes to Henry, who is getting so big, Justin will get me diapers for him and sing to him and play with him. Henry has lost a lot of his hair like I thought he would from rubbing it out. But he can roll over and he can do the army man crawl he gets farther than you would think he can. He loves to eat his toes and just talk. I love the boys so much.

Troy has been working on a foundry so he can melt down metal so he can make things with it. It has been fun watching him work on it. I have been planting like crazy and gardening. I am planing on ripping up some of my yard and putting cement down and a shed and giving the sod to my parents, for their back yard that my brothers dumb dogs have ruined. but it has been fun to Just let Justin play out side while I read a book and Henry is playing in his bouncer. I am glad it hasn't been to hot this summer so I can enjoy it.

Troy and I looking for a van and hope that we are able to buy one soon. It will be so nice to not have to pack our family into such a small car. Once we get a van we plan on going to Utah to visit family so every one can meet Henry. I can't wait for them to see him. I love him so much and he is the easiest baby in the world he sleeps all night from 8:30pm to about 7:00am Justin on the other hand well he is a hand full but we love him to.

So Henry is now a month old. He has gotten so big. Justin loves having home. I am doing so much better than I had been, after the first two weeks. I am so happy to have my boys I love so much. Henry is such an easy baby he never cries and he coos all the time. Justin is such a great big brother he loves him so much. Troy loves playing with them both it is so fun to watch them all. I was able to take some really fun pictures of Justin and Henry. They are great models.

Well I have past my pre-pregnancy weight of what I was before Henry, and I am only 10 pounds away from being the weight I was when I got married. I am so glad that the way I have been eating has helped and same with chasing Justin around has been great exercise. I haven't felt this good about my self in a long time.

Well Grandma bought a great gift for Justin for Easter he got three new gold fish he loves them! I don't which one is which but I know one of them is named Spike. I think it is really cute. I am loving this adventure so much!

Welcome to the world.

So Henry is finely here. I was in labor since the beginning of the month of March. The doctors wouldn't do anything to progress my labor and they didn't shut it down because I was 37 weeks. So finely when I was 39 weeks they induced me. I went in to the hospital at 7:30 am Thursday and they started to progress my labor. I must say the contractions got stronger but never hurt. About 3:30 I asked for the epidural even tho I didn't feel much pain I figured it would help me dilate faster and get the baby to come. So around 6 I started feeling pressure and it was constant so I let them know, so they said they would check to see how far I was probably not all the way yet. When they checked the baby was crowning! It was so exciting they got the doctor to come in and i pushed for two contractions and then he was out. Again another 9lbs baby out in under 5 minuets. Henry was born at 6:14pm on March 24th 2011 weighing in at 9lbs on the dot and 21 inches long. He has lots of black hair and dark eyes. He is doing great! He is defiantly Justins brother you can see the resemblance. I am just so happy that he is here. I am doing ok. I did have to have a blood transfusion because my levels dropped really low, But since I got that I am doing much better I would even say I am doing 10x better than I did after Justin was born. I am just so glad that I am done.

Can't do it any longer!

So I am 38 weeks pregnant and have been in labor for a few weeks. I have tried every thing to try and progress my labor since the Doctors wont do anything till a week from this Thursday. I have tried to be patient, and I must say that Henry is a little to comfortable. I have been only at a 1 and a half centimeters for dilation. I have tried every thing that people have thrown at me and it seem as if nothing is working.

Justin is so sweet tho he takes care of me when he is a wake he is such a cute little kid. He has decided that Henry will be know as Howey which is funny. He is excited for Henry to come. When he gets a cookie he wants one for Henry also, he is so cute that way. I love that he is excited for Henry to come. I am SOOO glad that he knows that Henry is his baby brother instead of a puppy named Two. Well I hope that Henry will be coming next Thursday unless any one has any more ideas of how to help me dilate. Hopefully my next post will be about how big Henry is and how Justin loves him.

Resses and Root Beer.

I must say there is just something these days about Resses penutbutter cups and Henry Winehards Root beer that just makes me so happy. I am not a Root beer lover I actualy hate it but durring this pregnancy I have loved it. Troy has been so sweet and has splurged on things for me. It has been so nice. I love him so much. and it is nice to just sit and relax eating my Resses and drinking my Root beer, while waiting for this little boy to come. Only 2 to 5 weeks left. I can't beleive how fast this has gone by it is amazing to me.

Well I must say that this pregnancy has gone by so fast. I am kind of sad about it, but at the same time with all that has happened I just want my little boy here. Ever since the fender bender we were in I have had excruciating back and neck pain so off to a physical therapist I go hopefully it will help. I think if I was not in so much pain I would enjoy being pregnant a little more. I feel blessed that I have a great insurance, and that we have a nice house, that Troy has a stable job, and that our parents live so close. I am so great-full for Justin who keeps me on my toes and who is a great little helper who just wants to take care of me. I can't wait for Henry to get here so our family can be full of lots of joy.

Home stretch

So it is the last 10 weeks and it is going better set a side the back and neck pain. I am measuring on time finally which is great. So it took me a few months to convince Justin that mommy had a baby brother in side her tummy, he thought since September that there was a puppy named two in me. Now he knows that he is having a baby brother. He loves the fact that there will be a baby here soon. When ever he has something he needs two one for him and one for "Honrey" as he calls him. I must say it is nice to know he is getting excited about it. On the other hand I am a little nervous going from one kid to two. I know I will be fine especially since I have Troy and my parents and Troys parents so close. We are not completely ready for the baby to come we still have to paint his room and put every thing together.
