2 years

From this To this
In just two short years.

I can't believe Bob is two. It went by way too fast! I love this little guy and I want him to stay little forever! Here are some fun facts about my little man

- He learned to swim before he slept all night (18 months swimming. 23 months sleeping all night)

- Loves Mickey Mouse and Woody (from toy story but calls him da goo no idea why)

-He hates to have a dirty diaper but the potty is a little scarry right now

-He is a mama's boy:)

-He takes at least a 3 hour nap (he would sleep more but we have to pick up Jordy from school)

-Calls Kenzie "K"

-likes balls and everytime we go to Safeway Daddy gets him a new one (good thing it's only 25 cents and we only shop there every other month)

-He likes to put on everyones shoes and walk around the house but once outside he is fast to take his off cause he would rather be without.

-Loves the water if someone is in the bath or shower he gets naked and jumps on in with them. (he gets several a day)

-Has the BEST smile

-dances everytime music comes on

Theses are just a few things we love about our boy. He makes every day so much fun!!

Random thoughts

-I can't believe I have four kids. FOUR kids!! And that I want more... CRAZY. I don't want more today or soon maybe in 2 or 3 years.

-I am getting NO sleep. this baby likes to eat.

-The good thing about him eating lots is I have lost all but 3 pounds that I gained. So in 17 days I have lost 23 pounds! I have 33 pounds in all to get rid of but I think I can do it. I haven't done any working out at all yet and it has just come off.

-Henry is a pee machine! We have used a box and 2 packages of diapers already and he is only 17 days old. I think I may actually have to buy newborn diapers.

-Bob loves Henry. He is always asking where he is and kissing him

-I can't believe Bob is turning two. I feel like I just planed a 1st b-day party for him. They grow up too fast.

-My husband is the BEST he lets me sleep in (when he can). and takes the kids out of the house so it is nice and quite for me. I love him!

-Jordan and Kenzie love having a baby in the house too. They have been very helpful and also love to kiss him. We all love to kiss him:)

-Having four is not as hard as I thought it would be. Going from 2 to 3 was A LOT harder then this. I haven't had to take all four anywhere yet well actually I did have to walk all four to Jordan's school for a meeting with his teacher. That was hard because it was hot and the stroller had a flat tire but other than that no so bad. We will see when Jordy is on break and I take all four somewhere, then ask me if 4 is hard:)

-I love being a mommy. It is everything I thought it would be. Only I did think I would get a little more sleep but I love I wouldn't want to do anything else. I am so thankful for a husband who works super hard so I can stay home with the kids and for friends who feel the same way!

Henry's birth

Friday morning a little after 2am I woke up and knew I was in labor. So I woke Will up and told him and he told me "give it a minute and go back to bed." I told him to get up cause we had to pack a bag and get some cleaning done before my mom came! So he got up got dress and so did I. I called my mom and told her to come in 20 minutes. By the time she got to our house and we told her how the morning should go with the kids and Jordan going to school it was 3:30ish and we were on our way to the hospital. I was getting nervous cause I had group B strep and had to get 4 hours of meds before I had Henry and didn't think that would happen.

So by the time we were triage and I got to the labor room and the IV of meds started it was somewhere around 5am. I was asked if I wanted the epidural but since I wasn't in a lot of pain I said not now. I was 6cm at this time and doing okay with the pain.

I had thought about going drug free this whole pregnancy but hadn't told anyone just in case I wimped out. So I asked Will for a blessing and afterwards asked what he thought I should do. He said he felt I shouldn't get it. I got mad at him because I was in PAIN!

7am and I told Will to call my mom and tell her if she wanted to be in the room she needed to hurry cause I didn't think it would be much longer. A few minutes later the nurse checked me I was still a 6 and she was leaving so I got a new nurse who checked me and I was 6 but as she was checking I became an 8 and Henry's heart rate was dropping fast. She yelled for another nurse told me to get on my side. Called the Doctor asked for the NICU to be on standby and it was go time. Will said it all happened in about a minute and Henry was born at 7:40am....

With the cord wrapped around him and not breathing. He was also facing the wrong way, which was very painful! He was head to toe purple. The silence in the room was so scary to me. They finally got him to breath and cry but I didn't get to hold him for 40 minutes. In fact I didn't move for an hour I was so tired and overwhelmed! I did ask "so it's a boy right?" Will laughed and said "yes it's a boy!"

So he came into the world fast weighing 7 pounds and was 18 inches. I am totally in love with him and so glad he is part of our family! I just hope this is the last time he gives me a mild heart attack! If you look at his hands and tummy you can see they are still purple:( When I saw this for the 1st time I cried.

Me and my little man. I know I look like heck but I did just have a baby drug free!

Sweet baby face!

Bob loves being a big brother!

All my crazy kids!

I love his sweet voice!

This is some of Bob and his animal sounds. I just love how cute his voice sounds!! Oh and don't mind the messy office, I am working on it:)


I am a planner so this whole pregnancy thing is driving me CRAZY!! I wake up every day and and hope that it's the day this baby comes only to have dumb braxton hicks (false labor, that hurts and is so irritating). I just find it funny that the one thing I love and wanted all my life (to be a mother) is the one thing you just can't plan for. You must wait for the baby to come when it wants to come. Then when they are here they run on their own little schedule for a while (but not to long:) ).
So here I am waiting...for baby #4, to be a mother to another sweet baby. I am honored to do so but a little cranky too:)
