Dancing

After watching Eva practice some zumba, Scott came to me and said, "Papi, it's my turn to dance."  He waited for me to turn on the music, and then he danced.

Summer Update!

Ok, finally a summer update. After having Michael, we have not been doing very much other than just adjusting to having 2 kids instead of one.


Scott has been having fun with his cousins :)


My boys having some bonding time. Scott is really good with Michael, he's so soft.



We went to Swiss Days.



We also went to temple square. Scott loved seeing Jesus' house.

The past couple of weeks...

These past couple of weeks have gone by so fast!! Taking care of my boys and recovering pretty much take up my whole time :) I'm getting used to having 2 kids and now that I'm starting to get out of the house a little bit more, I have to get used to walking back and forth from one side of the car to the other :)

Michael is growing, growing, growing but at the same time he's still little!! I'm enjoying him and snuggling him all I can while he's still little. We went for his 2 week appointment last Tuesday and he now weights 7lbs 10oz and has grown another half inch.


Here is Michael at 2 weeks:
* weights 7lbs 10oz
*21 long
*Eats every 4 hours
*We wakes up once in the middle of the night :)
*Has a good voice, he will let you know when he is starving (if he waits too long for his milk)
*He moves like crazy!
*He REALLY sucks on the binkie :)

Since Michael sleeps a lot, Scott decided he was going to bring his cars in my bedroom, and take a nap right next to my bed with them.

Doesn't he look so comfortable?!

Scott so far, has been really good with baby Michael, he LOVES him to pieces and every time he hears Michael cry he runs from wherever he is and put his binkie in his mouth.
Scott likes to help me with Michael as much as he can.

Cute brothers! Don't they look adorable?



Here are a couple more pictures because I can't seem to get enough of him!!


This is Michael's first bath. We were ok but then...

...he didn't really like it :(

Don't you just feel so bad for him? Poor little cutie :(

Michael Thomas is here!!

Our little bundle of joy arrived July 25th at 4:05pm. We are so happy to have him here. He is such a good little guy, and so far things are going great!

So here is the birth story: I started having contractions at 2 am on Monday morning, I didn't really think much of it, I didn't think I was going to have this baby for another week and a half. My real due date was Aug. 4th and I had scheduled my c-section for Aug 2nd hoping I could try for a vbac (vaginal birth after c-section) and I went back to sleep. At like 4am I couldn't really sleep through them and they were getting harder and harder. I figured if I was going into labor I would have to be in a LOT more pain to have the baby so I just decided to wait until I couldn't handle them any more. My contractions were 3-4 mins apart but not a minute long since 4am and they were slowly getting worse as time went by, but I could still handle talk through them. By 7am I a called my mom and told her I had been having contractions since 2am, she said if i could still handle them I should wait to go to the hospital, so I did just that.
At 8am, I called my SIL and I told her about my contractions and then she came over to help me get through them. I wanted to wait to go to the hospital as long as possible because I wanted to have an un-medicated vaginal birth, I thought this way I could increase my chances of having a vaginal birth since with the epidural you have to be laying down most of the time, and I wanted to stay active during labor to help my body dilate. My SIL came at 9 and by 10:15-ish we decided it was time to go to the hospital, so I stayed home while Greg took Scott to his Grandma Crockett's house and when he came back, we went to the hospital. We got to the hospital at 11:00ish and I was dilated to a 4 and 80% effaced. By the time they put me in my room (they were very slow) it was around 1pm. At like 3:15pm I was at a 5+ and 90% effaced, after that my contractions were getting stronger and a little closer together. By 3:30pm, my water broke and by 3:45ish I was ready to push the baby. I pushed for about 15mins and Michael came out!! I was so happy!! I was able to hold Michael right away and I was wide awake ready to hold him, something I wasn't able to do with Scott. I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to have this baby vaginally, it was hard while I was in labor because I would doubt myself that I could do it since my body didn't do what it was supposed to when I had Scott. I had the support of my husband, mom and my SIL-Halley. They were awesome and very helpful!!


Here we are waiting to get checked.

I love this picture! My little one is so cute!!

Summer Update!

Ok, so I haven't posted anything is SOOOO long and I don't think it's possible for me to get caught up. So here is a little summary of our lives.

*We are getting ready for Baby Boy to come (we don't have a name yet, I'm sure I'll know when I see him)

*My Aunt came to town from Switzerland and we had a blast spending time with her and showing her all the church sites.

*We've been out in the sun a lot!! Scott LOVES playing outside and he also loves swimming! I have been loving the warm weather for Scott but I'm DYING of HEAT!!

*We have done some painting/projects in our bedroom, living room and the kids room! I'm so happy of how it has turned out! I'm still decorating the kids room, but so far it looks awesome!!

*Also Scott has done some coloring/painting himself. See below:
He was supposed to be taking a nap in his bedroom while I was napping in my room, except that I fell asleep and he didn't. I could hear him through the monitor but I thought he was just playing with his toys but no. When I went in this is what I found!! I couldn't believe my eyes! I almost had a HEART ATTACK, Thankfully Greg works close by (like 5 mins. away) and he came to rescue me and well his kid.
After 1.5 hours of Greg cleaning and Scott watching we were able to get it off! This is the after. I'm so glad we had a good cleaner because the marker he found was permanent and was one of my scrapbooking markers (if you know me you DO NOT mess with my scrapbooking stuff!)


Here is a picture of the stripes Greg painted in our living room! The picture doesn't do justice. I'm in LOVE with my wall!! I'm so happy I have handy husband!!


In the bottom right corner you can see the toy box my AMAZING husband made for me :) (well for the kids)

"Warm Weather"

Remember back a couple of months ago, where it seemed like Spring was coming? Well on one of those days we went over to my brother's house and played outside with the kids. Scott was riding his bike for the time outside and he LOVED it!!

At the end, Daniel decided to give Scott a ride around the block. They both liked it (even though it seems like Scott didn't and is holding on for dear life) Daniel felt so good being able to give Scott a ride.


Scott running towards me instead of riding, just because it was faster :)

Here he is going around the circle by Halley's hosue.

He finally made it!!

The Children's Museum

We went to the Children's Museum for the first time a couple of months ago. Scott had a great time. We will for sure be going back!!
Warning: Picture OVERLOAD!!

Scott loved putting the balls up the suction tube.



He also loved pushing the lawn mower.

And of course the cars!!


He also liked the water activity thing they had there.



Here he is with his Auntie Halley.





Of course he loved the Construction area!!



He is now ready to work :)
