Baby Beau Is Here!

Beau was born Aug. 31st at 1:22pm. She weighed 8lbs 9oz!!! And was 4 days early! Dr. Tindall induced me because I had been having contractions for about a month and was dilated to a 4. We had to be at the hospital at 3:00 am (yes that's right people) to start some meds because I was group B strep positive and had to have 3 bags of penicillin before he could break my water. At 9am he broke my water and contractions kicked up a notch! I got my epidural and a half hour later was ready to push! 2 contractions and 6 pushes later, my sweet Beau was born!!!! I couldn't believe how fast everything went. I was only in labor 4 hours with no pitocin!! I couldn't have asked for a better delivery! We thought she looked just like Madi at first, but she is now getting her own little look. She is such a good baby!
Madi was so excited to meet her baby sister! She can't leave her alone! Poor Beau is going to have to get use to getting a million kisses a day from her big sis.!
Here are some pics from the big day!!!

Just a quick update!! I have been to the hospital twice now for having contractions every 2 minutes, but they are just from being dehydrated since I can barely keep anything down. I am dilated to a 4 though and still having "true labor" contractions but the Doctor isn't wanting to do anything to progress my labor until I'm at least 39 weeks. So for now I'm just drinking like crazy and trying to keep everything down. It is so frustrating and I wish they would just get her out, but I'm sure it's for the best and I would feel horrible if she came too soon! It's so hard to wait!

D-Backs/ Lifehouse!

I love the band Lifehouse! I think I've been to most of their concerts in the valley. So this last weekend they played after the Diamondbacks game and my mom and dad were so awesome and kind enough to get us all tickets to it! We had so much fun! Even Madi went and had a blast! I think she liked the game better than the concert. She danced and cheered her little heart out! Thanks again Mom and Dad!!!

She has to sit by aunt Brandy no matter where we are!

Go D-backs!

Wool Festival

Every year, the first weekend in June, we go to Flagstaff for the wool festival. You might be thinking "Why?", well I will tell you! Brian has a little known talent, Sheep Sheering! It's not his favorite thing to do, but they make it worth it to come every year. It's actually a very interesting place to be too. There are many Different people there! Madi had a blast! They had two 6 day old black lambs right by us and she sat there all day petting them! She wants one so bad, but I don't think so!

Gone Fishing!

We went to Show Low Lake one evening and had a blast! We took Brian's dad's boat, which Madi thought was so cool, and caught 6 fish! We had more bites but didn't quite get them in the boat! It was so fun though and the weather was perfect!

Madi's first fish! Caught with the awesome Princess pole!

Proud Dad with his girl!

Brian graduated his Fire Fighter class a couple weeks ago and he could not be happier it's over!! Me too, it's nice to have him home on Monday and Thursday nights! He is still going to be Show Low's mechanic, but now if they need him too he can go on fires or cover shifts.

Proud Dad!

It's a GIRL!!!!!! We went in for our ultrasound today and right off the bat she said it's a girl. The more and more she looked she said she was sure. So girl number 2 is on the way! Madi is so excited to have a little sis! She's been telling us all along that it is a girl. She was right! Brian and I are so excited too! Brian says he's going to make her his hunting buddy, but we'll see about that with a girly, girl big sister like Madi!

Dad Update

Easter Sunday my dad was put in the hospital for chest pains. Monday they did an angiogram and found out he needed a triple bypass!!!! We were in California when all of this happened, so I flew home for a day to see him right before surgery. He made me promise to fly back and go to Disneyland with my family, so I did but was worried the whole time! Anyways he ended up having 5 clogged arteries!!!!! He is doing great though, and the doctors say he will feel like a new man when he heals! We are just so blessed and thankful that the doctors were able to find out what was going on before he had a heart attack. The doctors said if he were to have a heart attack before the arteries were fixed he would have died. He is still in the hospital but should be out sometime this week!

Disneyland Pictures

She fell asleep in line to meet the princesses! I think we waited 2 hours to meet them! Seriously! But It made it so worth it to see Madi's face light up! She kept saying she couldn't believe it!


Getting off the Dumbo ride

California Vacation!

This last week we went to California for a little family vacation! We had so much fun! We stayed in San Diego for a couple days and went to Sea World, and then went to Lavern and went to Disneyland! Brian has family that lives in both places and they were so kind enough to let us stay with them.

Disneyland was a zoo though! I couldn't believe how many people were there on a Wednesday! So we didn't get to go on that many rides because each one we had to wait at least 45 min or longer!! All in all it was a good trip and Madi can't stop talking about it!

Us at the beach by Brian's aunt and uncle's house! Literally across the street from their house! It was awesome!

Go Shamu

It was a long day!
