Our second baby boy, which is still nameless, was born at 10:14 pm Mountain time. He was 7 pounds 1 ounce, 19- 1/4" long. Light brown hair, very content and quiet baby. He is more content to sleep than eat or be awake.
YAHOO! We have made it pass the national average! :) These past 6 years have been filled with so much love and fun happenings.
In December of 2005 I made a decision to go to BYU-I. I arrived on a cold winter day thinking you have got to be kidding me. Well I made it through the first semester not knowing my future hubby lived on the same block as I did, but we were in different wards. When the summer semester begain I wasn't sure if I wanted to stick around, I was so close to packing up my things and leaving, this happened to be around the same time I meet Eric, we were in the same FHE group. The first time I saw Eric, him along with Darren and the rest of their roommates were called up to share the testimonies! Who would of thought after our first couple incounters that we would have gotten married. We had a few interesting first conversations, and then he called me up to play catch. Not thinking anything about this, I went in a pair of sweat pants, and ugly tee shirt, hair in a pony tail, and no make-up, lets just say I did not dress to impress. We had a great time and we were hooked. A few weeks latter we were engaged and 2 months latter we were married. Since then we have lived in Utah, California, Wyoming and now New Mexico. We have had one cute little boy, Walker, who is 20 months and are expecting our second little boy. We have both graduated from CSUS, and who knows whats in the future for us, seriously.
So many things have happened since May that I think things have finally caught up to me.
Eric finished school
I finished work
Walker finished being at the sitters
Went to Idaho/Utah
Went to California for a few weeks
Looked for a new place to live (which didn't work out)
Moved out of our apartment
Moved our things into a storage unit in Las Cruces, NM
Went to my parents for a few weeks
Found a new place to live
Moved to NM at the end of the month
Organize our place
Found a doctor
Wait for the new baby to come
I was thinking of all the things that have happened since May, and oh my goodness, this has been so much on a pregnant lady, especially all the driving. So today I was feeling a hormonal moment coming on so I told my self to count my blessings. I have so much to be greatful for. I have an amazing husband, and healthy, happy 19 month old and I am expecting another healthy baby. Just those three things alone quickly changed my mood. Hopefully next time I feel one of those modes come on I can try to remember the things that I have (but sometimes it is just good to cry).
We'll to no suprise, I have a low platelate count again with this pregnancy, which does explain a few things. I have been so tired lately and anytime I get around someone sick, I get sick, and there have also been a few other signs that have been making me wonder since June. So they put on the medication that I was on with Walker, and he told me that I would probably feel hungry and gain some weight. I was like, whatever doc. it didn't happen last time. We'll I have been on the medication for 2 days and I feel like a hungry hippo ready to attack anything not nutritious. UHHH.
Also with all the doctor appointments I have been having to go to and not feeling well, Walker has become extremely and I mean extremely attached to Eric. He wants his daddy all the time. Today Eric had to leave to go somewhere and Walker went and got his shoes thinking he was going with him. Poor kid, he was so upset when he left he threw his shoes! Another example, when he gets hurt, he will go straight to Eric and won't even let me touch him. I hope this is a stage, because he is going to have to grow out of it quickly. I think he doesn't like the way I have to hold him because of the big belly, or when he little bro decides to start moving.
I am trying so hard to be patient, because he is sick and I am sick, and Eric has been so great with handeling everything, and being patient with me.
Honestly, it's just been one of those days where everything just seems blahh.
Who ever knew that they made matresses for pack-n-plays. We'll my friend Joann did, so thanks for the idea. The matress pad for the pack-n-play came in the mail today! I am so excited. Walker has been sleeping in the pack-n-play for about a couple of months with all the traveling we have been doing. And with the new baby coming I didn't want to put him in the crib just to take him right back out. I was worried about the pack-n-play because while at my grandparents if he was around anything that he could reach, he would climb out. I was thinking what the heck, this kid is not ready for a big boy bed. We'll we tried that when we first got here, and he cried for an hour in his room, so I said forget it we'll just wait until he is two. I don't want to deal with that plus a newborn, no thank you.
Anyways I am so excited that he doesn't have to sleep on the board of a pad anymore.
