So things are going really well since Cache was born. I still feel good except I am really tired. He seems to have his days and nights mixed up. Hopefully that will change soon. Other than that so far he is a good baby. He eats, sleeps and poops, poops, poops-did I mention he poops alot? Anyway Logan seems to be adjusting to him better. The first night we brought him home she was really excited and loved him. Then a couple days went by and I think she realized he is here to stay. She gets a little jealous when people come to visit and they want to hold Cache and not her. When it is just me at home with her she does well though. She is getting used to him and always asks about him. I am sure it will just take a little bit of time and she will be totally adjusted. (hopefully, right??) Anyway, I had a little too much fun taking pictures. I don't totally know how to use the camera I was using so some of them are a little pixilated-but I thought I got some cute shots anyway.

Yeah!! He is finally here! Cache was born yesterday Dec 9th at 1:50 p.m. He weighed in at 5 lb 12 oz and was 19 and 1/2 inches long! (Here is the shortened version of the labor and delivery) I went in at 6 in the morning and they started me on pitocin at 7:30-nothing was happening at all so the Dr. broke my water at 9:30. 10 minutes later the contractions started every one to two minutes (there was no gradually working into labor!) I got an epidural 2 hours later at 11:30 (thank goodness for epidurals-I love them!) The babies heart beat dropped right after I got an epidural so they took me off of the pitocin to see if it would help. This worked and the babies heart rate was back to normal in no time.-my body continued to have contractions without the pitocin and he was born in 2 hours and 20 minutes with only 3 pushes. All in all things went so smoothly and this was a very easy delivery. I felt great after and I still feel great. I am just relieved everything went well with no worries and only a small tear. I am also greatful he was born healthy. He is such a sweet little guy. Here are some pics

After they took him to the nursery they brought him back in this little stocking. I thought it was so cute!

Logan wasn't able to go to the hospital to see him because of all the bad illnesses going around and I was afraid of how she would react to him at home but as you can see from the pictures she loves him.

AAAAHH!! Ready or not I am scheduled to be induced this Wednesday the ninth to have the baby. (Dr. wanted to induce 11 days early because he is a little concerned the baby isn't growing as well as he should inside) He induced early with Logan also because of the same reason. Anyway-I have a mix of emotions to say the least. I am scared, nervous, excited. I just hope the labor and delivery goes well and I don't hemorage like I did last time. I am sure things will be better this time. Perry and I pulled out some of the tiny diapers we bought for him and we both freaked at how small they are. It suddenly hit me that he is really coming in two days!! I guess I better be ready for sleepless nights and all that fun stuff. I have been driving myself a little crazy trying to get things done before he arrives. (cleaning, Christmas shopping, laundry, picking up last minute things at the store. etc)
Anyway-we are excited..wish us luck..I will post pictures as soon as I can after he is born.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY YOU OLD MAN!....he doesn't like me teasing him about being 30-but it is my blog right? Okay-I'm late posting this..Perry's birthday was yesterday-but I wanted to let him know that I am thankful he was born and I love him....Thanks for all you do Per...

Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. We did-we went to Utah and had dinner at my sister's house in Salt Lake. I love Thanksgiving-it is such a good reminder of how much I truly am blessed. I also love the food-except this year I felt I couldn't eat as much (being over 8 months pregnant.) Anyway-while we were there we got to meet Logan's newest cousin Brynlee. She is a little cutie. She was born on the 12th of November weighing 7lb 11 oz. (I forget how tiny new babies are!) Hopefully Logan will be okay when our baby comes-she was definitely acting jealous when Perry or I were holding her. I'm sure she will get used to it though.

Here she is showing all of her Ute pride (or her dad showing all his Ute pride) Ha-too bad BYU won..hehe


We finally made it out to see Perry's sister Chanel and Rodney and their family. They moved to Dallas a couple years ago and we have been wanting to go visit ever since. Anyway, we had a good time watching the kids play soccer and hanging out. Dallas is a beautiful place- just wish we could take some of their weather home here to Farmington. Anyway-we had alot of fun. Logan loved their dog Cameron. She was not the least bit intimidated of his mammoth size. (110 lbs!) Don't you love his eyes?
