Here are some pictures from my mom's camera while she was here visiting. They went home today and am so sad because they were such a help and I am going to miss them so much!! But we had tons of fun while they were here. So enjoy the pictures!
Here is a quick picture of Kamden barely 4 days old! Thanks to wonderful Erin who came over and took this picture for us I am able to post a picture of him. When I went to download my pictures from my camera card to my computer, all of my pictures got erased from the card!! We have no idea how it happened, but we have NO pictures from the hospital. We have to put our card into our printer which then puts the pictures onto our computer, so we think the printer somehow erased the card. So I am not going to try that again. We have taken more pictures, but I have to get them on a disc and then I will post more. So check back in a few days.
Kamden's birth went great. I was induced since I was due on the 4th and the doctor didn't want me to go too far over my due date. So I went in on Monday morning (2/9/09, cool birthday huh?!) and he was born at 4:26pm. It was a great experience, and so far he is a great baby!! He weighed 7lbs. 5oz. and was 21 1/2 in. long. And he has DARK hair!! Other than that things are good and we're just trying to adjust to having a baby in the house again after 4 years, and trying to keep the kids from smothering him. But we are enjoying having him here finally and are loving him to pieces.
Here is me the day before Kamden was born. I'm so glad I'm not pregnant anymore!!
Obviously I have not have a baby yet since I am posting right now. I am going to be induced tomorrow morning since I was due on Wednesday and my Doctor doesn't want me to go past Monday. So wish me luck because I am freaking out now that I know it's coming! But I am also so excited to be done with this..........I'll post when I get back from the hospital!
So if anyone has any tips on how to make a baby come faster..........Please offer them! I'm not in a huge rush, but I'm really sick of being pregnant and well I guess yeah I just want this baby out! I need to figure out how to not have such a hospitable uterus. My kids just get really comfortable and don't want to come out, so HELP!!
On Friday it was such a beautiful day and the kids wanted so bad to go to the park after school, but I just did not want to go and sit at the park. So I said hey, let's go to the beach? It was gorgeous!! I just sat on the sand for an hour and let the kids run around and play. It was so fun. I can't believe that it was January and we were at the beach!
I tried so hard to roll their pants and not have them get all wet, but that didn't go real well, and this is what we ended up with!! They got a little too close to one big wave......and the pants had to come off!!
Kenyon turned 4 at the end of this month. We just had a fun dinner with Todd and Ruby Staley from our ward. Ruby wanted to make us dinner and how could we turn that down, and it just happened to be on Kenyon's birthday, so it was nice to have someone come and share his cake with, so I didn't end up eating it all!!
Giving hugs to Adriann for her present, a fun Diego Art Kit!!
Todd and Ruby gave Kenyon this snake and I'm so happy I got this picture!! He was goofing off, but it's so funny!!
This is Kenyon's cake that he helped me decorate. I let him just do whatever he wanted and when he was changing the top of the sprinkle holder, the entire top came off and they all fell out onto the cake! It was a brand new sprinkle thing too, so there were a lot of sprinkles!! But that just made it so much more yummier!
So with the baby on the way and both kids Birthday's in January, we did a joint Party at Chuck E. Cheese's!! Plus most of their friends are siblings, so it was a great way to have a big fun party and put less stress on me! Ha Ha Ha Ha! Less stress?.........Never have a party at Chuck E. Cheese!! They have changed all the rules now and you can't just walk in and have a party anymore. There is a new fire code and there has to be a seat for every person, so you have to wait at the door until they have a seat for everyone in your party and then they will let you in! Long story short, it was crazy at the beginning, but luckily it all turned out fine and we all had a great time! So here are just a few pictures:
I didn't have a lot of energy to make cool cakes this year, so I decided to do the fun number cakes! Kenyon wanted a cars cake, so I just put cars on it, and Adriann is obsessed with Littlest Pet shop, so we just put some of her animals on the cake. And yes, I washed all the toys before they went on the cake!!
Just some presents they got, Kenyon would not look at the camera, so I didn't get any good pictures of him.
This was on the way home, they were asleep before we even left the parking lot, I guess they had a good time!!
