Big Brother

I always wished I had an older brother.
Tonight, before scripture study, Hyrum asked if he could hold baby Sarah.  He informed me after family prayer that he wasn't finished holding her because he loves her too much.  By the time stories had been read, teeth brushed, pajama's put on, and the girls settled for the night - I walked into my bedroom to find him dozing...
Let's just say, I'm grateful my son came first - and that he now has three little sisters to look out for.

Beautiful Baby

Although I had been scheduled to be induced Friday morning at six am, I was pleased to find myself progressing in labor starting at nine-thirty pm Thursday night, and my first bag of waters broke in my bath tub at about two-thirty am.  After that, I went shopping at Kroger with my Mom for about a half hour to walk around then headed to the hospital. We ended up arriving at the hospital at about three-thirty am.  By the time six came around, I was dilated to a six.   And at eight-thirty, I was to an eight.  The mid-wife broke my second bag of water (which was like a flood, more than I've ever seen) and within a half hour, I got on all fours and pushed with three of the most painful contractions I've ever felt at which point, Sarah literally dropped under me and the mid-wife caught her with her strong hands.  It was a very large and healthy looking cord that had a knot in it which the mid-wife carefully untied.  I then delivered the placenta which was also huge and healthy looki…

This is my attempt at an online support group.  Looking at my pregnancy ticker, I find it amusing that it says, "only -3 days to go".  Well, that number that was on a slow decline for all those months, is now growing each day, and it is a little depressing.   My Mom leaves Saturday for home, and although I'm glad this isn't my first, I was hoping she'd get to see my new baby before she left.  But at least she's had plenty of time with her other grandchildren.   Grandma has fixed up everything in our house and out while here.  Anything that was broken or neglected is in great shape now.  She's a regular handy man-and a very talented Grandma.  She's knitted hats for Ang and Sarah and little white booties, while keeping up on her BYU studies as a senior, and still had plenty of time to clean, make meals, and play a whole lot with my kids.
  As of the past week - my baseboard gaps are now all sealed, my toilet doesn't wobble anymore and both toilet pap…

My baseboards gaps are now all sealed, my toilet doesn't wobble anymore and both toilet paper dispensers are sturdy on the wall.  My license plate is drilled in at the bottom (first time since we got new license plates), my front license plate (that a guy backed into in the dark one night) is now bent straight-so looks like new.  The wooden slabs …
Well we should have a new baby girl within the next few days, maybe tomorrow! She will be a good size baby and she will bring lots of sunshine to Ohio! We will let everyone know as soon as we hear!
