We celebrated Lydia's birthday today with our very good friends Adam and Tara and Lee and Candace. Lydia absolutely loves Abby and Isabel and they came over to celebrate her birthday too. Here are some pictures to enjoy!!
But most of all that we celebrate our 5 year anniversary today. I have loved being married to Joel. He has taught me so much about marriage and life and I couldn't ask for a better husband. I LOVE YOU Joel!!!
Wow, how time flies. Today is Lydia's 2nd birthday. She has been a great blessing to us. Each day I seem to take for granted the time I have with her, but I have learned to try to stop and take in every moment because she won't always be with us. So happy birthday Lydia
Well today of many days is an eventful day for us. But right now I want to say Happy Birthday to Joel's dad. His parents spent 10 days with us to help me out after Seth was born. They were a great help. We were happy that his dad got a clean bill of health and hopefully will have many more years to get to know his grand kids. So happy birthday dad!!!
It is amazing how quickly time goes by. It is also amazing how you just want to be done being pregnant wishing to meet the little baby that is rolling and kicking and sticking limbs out of your stomach and wondering what in the world they are doing in there. I have been thinking about these things as it has already been a week and a couple of days since Seth was born and wishing I could still feel him moving inside, because I know that how quickly he will turn 1 and then 2. I know this because I look at my soon to be 2 year old little munchkin and wonder where in the world time has gone. She has blessed my life so much and I have loved every minute of having her in my life. I got the chance to take some pictures of Lydia and Seth together hoping to catch as many moments of the 2 of them together while I could hoping that time could almost slow down. But I need to focus on the fact that we are raising them to shoot them out of our quiver. On a side note. Joel's parents have been here and have been extremely helpful. Today we celebrate his mom's birthday so HAPPY BIRTHDAY NANA and we love you!!
Well I have finally found the time to blog. I just wanted to let you all know that Seth Nathan was born Aug 4 at 6 pounds 6 ounces and he was 19 inches long. I was really blessed with a good labor and delivery. I am so grateful for the nurses that I had in the hospital they were amazing and made my time there very pleasant. A little about Seth. He was born 3 weeks early so he has been struggling with jaundice a very common thing in early babies. He had to stay an extra night in the hospital but he is improving and doing well. He is a great eater and Lydia loves him very much. Her favorite thing to do is to go to his bed and look in and rub his head. She will occasionally want to hold him, but only for a few minutes. Her transition with us has been a little trying but she is coming around. She also is getting her 2 year molars in so she is a little tired and fussy, but overall adjusting well. A big thanks to my mom and sisters for coming and helping me out. Allyson, my niece, got to come as well and she was a big help entertaining Lydia. So Allyson will forever be known as Alice.
We decided to go to the Boone County Fair and walk around hoping I would go into labor. LOL but we also had a good time and check out what we saw!!! Lydia loved the horses but of course we didn't get a picture of the horses.
