Adjusting Well...

Karlie and Nathan are adjusting to the new baby better than I thought.
Karlie has become little mother, expected when it comes to changing the diaper. But that's were Nathan comes in. He loves changing it and he even loves to wipe the bum, apply diaper rash cream, and throws the diaper in the trash. Number three is easier then I had planned for. Expected for the dreaded night feedings and changings, hopefully in a couple of months that will all be in the past.

Gavin Bryce

Gavin was born Nov 8, soon after the Touch a Truck park. He weighed 7lbs 11oz and was 20 inches long. He is as perfect as they come. Now if only the delivery had gone that way. I thought Karlies was bad with the fourth degree rip, then Nathan's all natural. But Gavins... we got there to late again, so I was made to go natural, no IV's, nothing. But the worst was that I had a lip or something that was preventing the head from coming out. So the doctor had to put her hands in a hold down the lip. Talk about pain, I was yelling at her to take her hands out of me, but only the head finally came over it, it went back up, we had to do it all over again. Then the little boy kept rotating his head, painful, so she had to stick her hands up and hold his head straight. All of this with no meds. I can't believe I'm still here. I push for over an hour almost 2. I think that's good birth control for me, I don't want to have another for a long time. But I must put a plug in for my doctor, she was wonderful, better then a midwife. She stayed with me the whole time from the moment I got there. And she even took pictures of the baby, because she didn't like the ones J.R. took. She took all of them but two. I was so happy to have finally a great doctor.

Touch a Truck

Touch a Truck is at a fun park, where people bring all kinds of vechiles ex...firetrucks, garage trucks, racing trucks.... And it's Nov 8, and the baby still hadn't come so I decided to go with them and walk around, still nothing major. I thought this baby just doesn't want to come. Which I was glad to go with my kids there, it was fun to see, them having so much fun there.

Karlie having fun with Grandma

Happy Halloween!

We had such a blast this Halloween. Grandma flew in to celebrate with us. Karlie had a preschool party, then we all went to Liberty Village for a fun parade, trick or treating, and a magic show. I walked all around trying to get little Gavin out, but nothing happened. That night we went trick or treating to our neighbors, Nathan was so funny, he loved the fact he got candy, he ran to every door, even when Karlie was done and wanted to go home, Nathan wanted to keep going. Nathan also copied everything that the person holding the candy said. It was a great night. J.R. even go home in time to catch the last few minutes of it.

Over due....

I'm over due, and still no baby. They've even stripped my membranes a week ago, and still nothing. Oh, well, I just hope this boy isn't to big.
