Another week...

I'm pretty sure the days go fast now that I'm outnumbered!
Which leads to making the weeks go by faster too...

Last Sunday we got together with Gord's family in UT to celebrate the October birthdays.
Tydon was so excited all day to blow out the candles and eat cake.
There are mornings that I'm just not quite ready to get out of bed and so Tydon usually gets into something he shouldn't while I'm being lazy. One morning he decided to take some pictures...
I'm sure most of you can relate to a little of this...
No I'm not ready for winter!!

Henson got to go and meet one of his new girlfriends ;)
Cute lil Kenzie was born 2 weeks after him.
Tydon has been such a good helper and LOVES his little brother.
He was loving it when Gord wrapped him up like baby brother.
We survived Gord having the flu... Tydon fighting a cough and I even experienced the 24 hr flu...
Hoping we've experienced all we are going to this year.

Thanks Grandma!!

Any guesses what he's gonna be for Halloween??


Last week's highlights, this week's To Dos

I think we are starting to adjust to having a new addition in the house.
Our neighbors and friends have been so awesome stopping by with gifts and bringing meals to us.
One neighbor brought over dinner and a little outfit for Henson and when I asked Tydon to go get dressed one day he came up with this...
{The pants are to the new outfit for Henson}
Tydon thought they were great football pants
We decorated Halloween cookies for FHE
Itty Bitty Football is officially over.
Tydon loved it! I'm so glad they offer something like this for the kids.
Tydon's Team
The last day they pulled out the parachute...
Do you remember loving this as a kid??
Here's Tydon running the ball :)

Lenny even came the last day to meet the kids...
Henson even dressed up for the last day ;)
Gord is such a great dad. We have been having some great Fall weather so he has been taking advantage of it with Tydon. They usually go out back to play football after dinner.
We are seeing a little bit more of this these days...
Henson is such a good baby. He still sleeps lots during the day so when he is awake we love every minute of it!
Saturday was beautiful!
Some of our favorite friends were here so we hit up Gardner Village...
One of my favorite places this time of year

Thanks for coming to stay Kate and Germ!
We are so excited for you guys to be parents... May will be here before you know it ;)
Gord started the week off with making dinner!! Love it when he cooks ;)
His sauce is so yummy!!
Yesterday Gord stayed home with the Flu :(
He was really paranoid about getting us sick so after he left today I spent the morning washing sheets and sanitizing the house.
Then we had to get out the train...
This is planned for the afternoon...
Any guesses??
And a couple more projects for tomorrow ;)
Yikes that was a marathon...
Hope I'm all caught up :)


2 Weeks old

Henson had his 2 week check up today.
I can't believe it has already been 2 weeks.
He is already starting to look thicker to me ;)
Head 14.5in - 40%
Length 20.5in - 40%
Weight 7.7 lbs - 20%

Compared to Tydon, his averages are smaller.
Maybe it's the difference between Tydon being a week late and Henson being about a week early.


Sneak Peak

Henson had his first photo shoot yesterday!
I can't wait to see more...
(Thanks for the sneak peak Viv)


Brotherly Love....

Tydon can't get enough of his little brother.
He always asks to hold him and has been so good and sweet with him
He brings him cars and checks on him often
I can't believe how big Tydon is now! Having a newborn around makes me realize how big my little helper really is.
It has been such a fun week with Gordon's parents here for a few days and my mom here to help out. I'm so grateful for family and especially for my sweet husband and all he has done for me this week. Having Gord home has been such a HUGE help and blessing. We'll see what next week brings when I'm outnumbered during the day;)


Labor and Delivery...

For those that like the details...
I woke up early Sunday morning about 2am to an uncomfortable contraction. I repositioned myself trying to go back to sleep, but another one came. After a couple more, I got up and went to the bathroom then downstairs to get my phone to start timing them. Sure enough they were about 5 minutes apart but not breathtaking yet so I kept timing and tried to stay busy... blog surfed, took a bath, watched TV. By 5am the contractions were starting to take my breath away and I was getting pretty uncomfortable so I decided it was for real and time to get things packed up! I text Gord's niece to see if she would wake up and {luckily} she did. Tiffany was on her way to come and stay with Tydon so I woke Gord up and told him it was time to go have a baby. He jumped up and was pretty excited! I picked out some clothes for Tydon and packed him a bag to go to Gord's sister's. I had the baby bag packed and finished one for myself. Gord took the car seat down and put the bags in the car, Tiffany showed up and we were out the door. It took us about a half hour to get to the hospital. I was pretty hungry so I ate a banana on the way hoping it would help give me some energy.
At the hospital...
They admitted me at 6am. I was dilated to a 3 and 80% effaced. The nurse asked what I wanted for pain and I told her an epidural. She asked if I wanted it right away and I told her I'd wait. (I didn't want it to slow down my progression) At 7am they moved me to a different room and checked me again. I was dilated to a 4. I asked her if the anesthesiologist was busy and she said "no," so I decided it was time. After the epidural the nurse said she had talked to the Dr and he said to go ahead and break my water and start the pitosin to get the show on the road. By that time it was 8:30am. I was happy to be able to relax and tried to sleep. The nurse checked me again about 9am and I was dilated to a 7 so everything was moving right along. Little guy's heart was starting to slow down during contractions so they inserted a tube into my cervix to add water to help give him some cushioning. It did it's job and he was doing good again. About 10am I was starting to feel quite a bit of pressure and they hadn't checked me for a while so I called the nurse about 10:15am. I told her I thought I was ready so she checked me and sure enough he was at a 10 and I was 100% effaced. She called the Dr and he came back to the room to get ready. He suited up, lowered the bottom half of the bed and took a seat. The nurse sat the bed up and they told me on the next contraction to grab my knees and push. About that time I was ready to push, so I did as I was told, grabbed and pushed. Little guy crowned and I just kept pushing.... and out he came!! I couldn't believe it.
The cord was wrapped around his neck twice so I'm glad that he came fast.
We are so happy to finally have him here!

It's so nice to have him home.
Love this little guy!!
I'm so grateful for this sweet little spirit and the joy and happiness he has brought into our home. Gordon has been home all week with us and I have been loving every minute of it! He has been such a huge help and I'm gonna miss him next week when he goes back to work.

Thanks for all your comments, visiting and gifts!
