We decided to do Christmas a little early this year. Why? Lots of reasons, but mainly because we wanted to and we can! It's one of the perks of being the Mom and Dad, you get to make decisions like that!
So here's a little taste of what Christmas was like at our house
Isaac was so much fun to watch open presents! He was so excited over everything!!!
He loved his new bike. And of course because Isaac got a new bike, Gary also got a "new to you" bike (Isaac's old bike)

and also for your viewing pleasure, Baby hiccups!
Ashley had the hiccups this morning and it was too much! I couldn't take how cute her little hiccup squeaks were.

Merry Christmas all!

Kay vs. Beer

As Greg said, since we don't drink he had to go with Kay.  I'm sure glad he did!

Merry Christmas!!

One of the main question people seem to be asking is; "Who does she look more like? Isaac or Gary?!"
Since I think they all look a lot like each other, but somehow still have their own unique look, I'll let you decide.

1 week

It has been a fun week!!
It's been full of a whole lot of this;
We've all been enjoying have a little baby (yes, even at 2am when she's wide awake) and the happiness that comes with babies.
Has it brought calm to the house?! Not quite. The boys are still as rambunctious as ever and maybe a little more so from the excitement of having their baby sister here. They are so in love with her and I can't help but smile every time they try to "help" out. Their intentions are good and I guess that's what matters right?!

My mom was able to stop by for a quick visit on her way down to my Grandma's (HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRAMY).  It was nice to have her here, even if it was only for a few hours.

All in all it's been a fun and mildly crazy week.

Happy 1 week Birthday Ashley!

She's Here!!!

There are about a Billion pictures in this post!!!
Having said that;


At about 7:30am Wednesday morning I started having contractions. However, they were irregular and not lasting very long, plus Isaac had school pictures that day, so yes, I took Isaac to get his school pictures taken while I was in "labor"

This was the view from our delivery room!
Pretty awesome!

After returning from school pictures they were getting stronger and longer so I called the hospital and we were admitted around 11:30am. We walked around to get the contractions to be more consistent. The nurse we had was amazing! She gave us some good tips and advice to get the baby to drop (no she still hadn't dropped yet) and to get the contractions closer together.  She was also really good about leaving us alone to do our own thing.
I ended up getting my epidural, which slowed down my contractions so they hooked me up to some pitocin which got them stronger and closer together.

After 14 hrs of labor and 10 mins of pushing she made her grand entrance at 1:20am on December 1st weighing in at 9lbs 6oz and measuring 20.5 inches!
She is an amazing baby!! A great eater, super sleeper, and not fussy at all!!
The nice part was that since she is our 3rd and there were no complications they let us go home that evening.

Tiny Feet

Gary is totally in love with his baby sister. Always wanting to hold her and kiss her and hug her.
