She is Here!!!

Finally I have a few minutes to put some pictures on here of our little girl. She was born on Tuesday at 3:15p.m. and weighed 6 lbs 4 oz and is 19 1/2 inches long. We named her LEXI ELLEN. She is such a good baby and a good little eater. And of course we think she is the cutest little girl ever.
I got started at 11:00am and got my water broke at 1:00pm. Contractions started hitting hard and fast. Got epidural at about 2:15pm and shortly after that I felt her coming out! Seriously. She was coming out and I felt like I had to push. The nurse checked me and was very surprized cause she was ready to come. She hurried and called the Dr. and I didnt think the dr. was going to make it. The nurse kept telling me to just take big breaths and not to push. The dr. walked in and a few minutes later.... she came out. It was so fast that it was a blur. The best part....... the epidural didnt have time to kick in all the way so it hurt like you know what. So, I am glad that it was fast and she was little cause that was VERY VERY painful. I kept yelling that I didnt think I could do it. But all is well now. She is healthy and we are home and life is great. (That is just a quick version of our little story.) So here are some pics of our little Lexi. Enjoy!! (And yes, Lukas absolutley adores her.)

The Plan

So not much going on around here lately. I am just feeling really ready to have this baby. But we are planning on inducing on Tuesday. YEAH!!! So hopefully by Tuesday we will have our little girl. That is CrAzY!!!!!! I am ready but at the same time it is weird to think that in a few days she will be here. I am only dialated to a 2 (as of Thursday) so I hope that doesnt mean it will take forever to induce her. But with Lukas I was only at a 1 when we induced so I am farther along then I was with him. But today I have been feeling some off and on contractions so hopefully my body is getting ready because I FEEL READY!!! Lukas asks me like 10 times a day if she has come out yet. So I think he is pretty anxious too. We will post pictures of the little one has soon as we can!!! Wish me Luck!!!

Mesa Falls

Last weekend we decided that we needed to get out and do something so we decided to take a drive to Mesa Falls. We took a picnic with us too and just enjoyed being outside. Lukas loved the waterfalls. It was hot but nice anyway. So here are some pics we took of our day.

These next pics were taken on the way there. There is a place by the river you can stop and feed the fish. We took some bread and fed lots of fish. The fish there are HUGE. And there is a ton of them. Every piece of bread we threw in got eaten in seconds. The fish are probably so big cause they get fed tons of food. There were quite a few people stopping to feed them.

And for a baby update : I had a Dr. appt yesterday and everything is looking good. She is head down but nothing is really happening yet. I am having tons of Braxton-Hicks contractions and so that is pretty miserable. But I guess we just keep hanging in there. The Dr. said that she would induce me up to a week early because we live an hour away. So we will see what happens I guess. But we are down to 4 weeks left possibly 3 weeks if we induce early. I am hoping she will come on her own a week or two early but I am not going to get my hopes up. Either way, we will have our baby soon and we are so excited! We will keep you posted!

Lukas and my lipstick

This is what happens when Lukas gets a hold of lipstick and I dont find him until it is too late. He was pretty proud of the artwork on his arms. Can you tell? Silly kid!!!!
