Oh I just LOVE him....

Wednesday, October 21, 2009


So here is his arrival story...
About 6:00 in the morning on Wednesday I woke up to go pee for the 3rd time that night. As I was walking back to bed I felt something weird and liquid leaking. I thought, "Holy crap, my water just broke!!" I woke Jadi up and he went right into "lets get things done" mode. He was totally relaxed and chill. Not what I thought he would be at all! We got things packed and ready to go. We left the house at 7:30. On the way to the hospital I started having contractions. I didn't pay much attention to them at first but then they started to hurt pretty bad. So I started timing them and they were exactly 5 min. apart. The drive to the hospital takes 30 min. So we finally get there and we check in.
The nurse comes in and checks to see if my water really did break....and it didn't, I just had alot of pee and it didn't all come out when I went to the bathroom. Embarrassing! But the nurse did say that happens alot, but still, I felt dumb. But thankfully I was still having contractions but now they were 3 min apart and pretty intense so they didn't send us home. Instead my dr. came in and said, "Well, lets get this baby here, I'm going to break your water and your baby will be here soon." Jadi and I looked at eachother with shocked faces. I think we both kind of thought they would end up sending us home. I really didn't think this baby would come early!
So the dr. broke my water and thats when I wanted to die! The contractions after that were terrible! I was only 2 centimeters dilated so I thought it would be awhile before I would be able to get an epidural and I was so scared because these contractions were coming every 1 1/2 to 2 min. I barley had time to breath! Thankfully the nurse came in and rushed my epidural. After I got that it was great, I felt great. The next few hours they checked me and I was progressing pretty slowly so they gave me some pitocin to help things going.
At 3:00 the nurse came in and I was at 4 cm. She said she would come back in an hour to check me agian. Jadi and I bet what I would be dilated to when she came back. I said I would just be at a 5 and he guessed 7. Well only 40 minuted went by and she came in to check me and I was at a 9!! We were both shocked again!!! She said she would come back in 35 min. and we would start pushing. I couldn't believe it! It was such and exciting overwhelming feeling to know that just in a short matter of time we were going to have a baby, that our little guy was finally going to be here! After all the uncomfortable months of being pregnant it was all about to be over! It was such a strange feeling.
So the nurse came back and we started. And after 2 1/2 hours of pushing, sweating and Jadi being the best support ever, and being so tired I wanted to die. He came out!!! It was a whirl wind of emotions. He was so ugly and cone headed! But I immediately loved him more than anything! I was so happy to be done. Jadi and I were instantly in love with this little boy and we really couldn't believe what had just happened!
All day long during my labor while we were waiting. We kept saying, "What are we going to name him?" And we still had no idea. But in my mind I kept thinking Sawyer. I told Jadi that but he still wasn't 100% on the name.
After they cleaned him up and handed him back to me for me to hold him for the first time, I looked at Jadi and said, "Its Sawyer" and he said "Yep, your right." So we were so happy we named him sooner than later. I really didn't want to leave the hospital with a nameless baby!
Our first night with the baby in the hospital wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. He has a pretty intense cry but he doesn't use it too much so its nice :)
Since we have been home things have been wonderful. Being in the hospital for 48 hours is torture. Jadi and I were dying to get out of there. And once we finally did get home we were in heaven. So far he has been so relaxed and such a good eater and most importantly a good sleeper!!
He is a week old today and all ready time is going by too fast. He has been the greatest blessing to us and we are so happy and grateful that he is apart of our lives!!!

I have tons more pictures but motherhood calls and I will have to finish later!!!

The Bump....

Ok so here it is... I have alot of people asking to see it. This is me at 26 weeks pregnant! I can't believe how fast it is going by. Our little man will be here so soon! He moves around like crazy in there all day and I love it. It feels like he's having fun in there, ha ha ha! But things are going great...

We only have about 6 weeks left of the summer and then we will be home in Utah getting ready for this baby to come! Jadi has been working super hard and is doing awesome!
We are having a hard time thinking of a name for this little guy, so any suggestions would be great!! I am really not great about updating this blog of mine and its kind of hard to do when you're without a computer (ours crashed...sad) But I will start updating more that I am getting further along in my pregnancy. And I will be trying to get some better pics up of my prego self soon. I really want to start doing them about every 2 weeks or so.
There isn't much else going on. We're still living in the smallest town in the world, with nothing around us and not much to do. I'm just so glad that the time is going by fast. And there are some great wives out here to hang out with so we keep eachother busy. So check back soon for more pics!

IT'S A...

BOY!!! We are so happy and excited! He is looking very healthy and is still expected to arrive the end of October. Seeing him on the Ultrasound was amazing. He was moving around all over the place, it looked like he was having a good time in there!! We got the cutest pictures of his little body parts and his cute profile. He kept opening his mouth and sucking on his hands. It just seems so much more real now, its crazy! I have been feeling him move around in there regularly and it is the best feeling! We are now anxiously waiting for him to get here, we can't wait to have a little man in our house!

I LOVE this one of his little foot!!

Time for a Major Update!!!

Well things have been SUPER crazy lately...
The last few months have been pretty interesting being pregnant. I've been struggling with morning sickness, really like all day sickness. I am nauseous all the time and it sucks pretty bad but I am definitely getting used to it. I have a strict routine for myself and usually as long as I follow it I feel ok. Right now I am 14 weeks pregnant. I've had 2 dr. appointments and things are looking great! I am REALLY anxious to get to the 4 month mark, everyone says I'll feel so much better at that point....I hope everyone's right!!! But its crazy to think that we'll be having a baby in 6 MONTHS...WOW!!! Jadi and my sister definitely think it will be a GIRL but I'm leaning more towards a BOY but we'll see. My 20 week appointment is on June 8th so we should find out who's right then. We are both SO excited for this new chapter in our lives and can't wait to have a healthy baby this fall! Our actual due date is OCTOBER 22. I do see some changes in my body, I'm definitely pudgy in places I've never been before, so I can tell a little bump is trying to make its appearance!
Also...I haven't written a post about our summer. Jadi is selling with APX for his 4th summer and we are in CHICAGO! We went here our first year and I loved it, so I am excited to be back. We will actually be living in Indiana, where we are now. But the city is only an hour away. Right now we are in Fort Wayne, IN living in a hotel for 2 weeks and then we'll move 2 hours west to our apartments for the rest of the summer. So thats about everything thats been going on lately. I'll definitely have more posts coming up because the APX summer begins which means I have alot of time on my hands to do whatever!

Cancun, Mexico!!!

These pictures below are pictures of the hallway
outside our room in the hotel! It was so pretty. The 2nd picture is
kinda dark but Jadi is peeking through the vines. :)

The pool area outside

The sand down on the beach was super sticky and Jadi and I
got into a little sand fight! Sand was every where, in our ears, mouths,
hair, nose, anywhere you could think of!! It was hilarious, we couldn't stop
laughing! It was miserable trying to get it all off though.
We had sand coming out of our ears and hair for days after!

There are pictures of me covered in sand too but they aren't
uploaded yet. I only wanted to bring disposable cameras so
I still have a couple more pictures to add.

One of the swimming pools at the Hotel. Thats Jadi's
head sticking out of the water!

So, I do still have some more pictures of our fun trip. But these will just have to do for now....(Maddie!!) It was such a fun and relaxing and much needed vacation. Thanks to Jadi for working so hard all summer long with APX we were able to go. Your the BEST Jadi!!!
