So this delivery was different that my other two. I thought it was going to be like Taylore's but it was much different! I went in on Thursday June 11th to be induced. It all got started about 630 pm. About 1130 I had asked the nurse if it was possible my water broke, of course I just went to the bathroom. She said she didn't think so and left. About 1230/100 my contractions started getting kind of strong. About 2 am the nurse came in to check me and I told her my contraction we not being picked up on the monitor and that they are low but getting kind of strong. Than I woke up Brian with my moaning and breathing about 3am. He told me to call the nurse and tell her I was hurting and I didn't right then because I didn't think there was anything she was going to do. So she came in and decided to check me. I was about 4.5 cm and the baby's head was engaged. She then called my doc and asked if I could have the epidural. He said ok and then the called the him. They checked my at about 10 min later and I was 7cm. I was in a lot of pain and couldn't believe I was about to deliver this baby without any pain meds. I kept asking where the doc was and they kept telling me "he's on his way!" Then about 5 min later they checked me again and I was 8 1/2 cm. Then the anethesiologist showed up and it felt like an hour but I guess it was only 15 min. He was telling me to scoot back on the bed and I yelled "Nope the baby's coming!" One push and she was out. I never want to do that again. Epidurals are my friend! My doctor didn't make it for the delivery. Briley was born at 330 in the morning and was delivered by a team of nurses. GO NURSES! So that's my story in a nutshell. It was not pleasant and I didn't really want to scream, but you kind of can't help it cause it really hurts! She was 7 lbs and 13 oz and 18 in. long.

Happy 2nd Birthday Taylore!!!

Well Taylore is finally two. We've already hit the terrible twos so I can't wait! We had a small party with some friends and then on Sunday we'll have one with my parents cause they had to work. We had a good time. She got a tinkerbell doll from the Meneses, princess dress up shoes from Avery, a tricycle from Grandma and Grandpa, a sand box and remote control My Little Pony car from mom and dad. I have pics from the party at my house and more pics to follow from my mom's. It's been a great two years with Taylore and can't wait to see what's coming!

Happy Easter

Avery and a friend happen to match for church on Easter.

We had kind of a low key Easter this year. It was great though. We have 800 church so the kids got to enjoy thier baskets after church this year. Of course Avery was up early enough to rummage through his. Taylore was excited about the candy! That's one of her favorite things. Of course I tried to focus on the true reason we celebrate Easter. I just want to say that I am very grateful for the sacrifices that my Savior has done for me. I serve in the primary and had to sit in the CTR 5 class for a few minutes. I tried to help them understand what Easter is all about. I think most of them got it. I hope the message got accross to Avery, I'm pretty sure it did. After church we went to my parent's house for an Easter egg hunt and dinner. It was fun seeing Taylore look for eggs for the first time. Avery was funny becuase he would walk right past an egg and not even see it! It was a good spiritual fun day!

Well here is our new little girl. Just her face if you can make it out. Her face is in the middle you can see her forehead, eyes, nose, mouth and chin. Some people can't make it out so no worries if you can't! Still no name yet though.

Brian's Dream Comes True!

Other than marring me! Brian's racing dream came true. He has a friend who has a drag race car without a driver. So of course Brian volunteered. We went up with friends of ours and our kids. It was actually cold so they sat in the car. They did see his first run though. It was a test and tune so he wasn't really racing against others. The real race is in a couple of weeks. He was so excited he was like a kid on Christmas morning. I was nervous when he started. He got to do three runs and he was thrilled. Now the car is sitting in our garage and he says hi to it everyday and starts it everyday. I think I'm being replaced! JK. I'm glad he had the time of his life!

Well, I guess we are having another girl! We had one ultrasound and she wasn't sure and than I grabbed the ultrasound guy at work and he said he was pretty sure it's a girl. I believe they are going to change my due date to the 14th of June. Avery is a little disappointed cause he really wants a brother. I told him maybe next time. We were all kind of hoping it was going to be a boy, Oh well! Hopefully her and Taylore will play good together and be good friends. The pic is kind of hard to see, sorry

So this year for Christmas my parents had to work at the hotel so we went and spent the night there. It was fun. Santa found the kids so they were excited. We stayed all day and let the kids play with their toys and we ate a wonderful meal. The Fincks came also to eat so the kids got to play with their new toys. Brian and I got each other a entertainment center and TV for Christmas. Avery got a Lego set and a T-Rex skeleton and a Wii game from Santa , a Wii, and a cool robot from Grandma and Grandpa and nascar stuff from Brian's mom, construction stuff from Connie and Dan, a football from Chris. Taylore got a kitchen set from Santa, table and chairs and cleaning stuff from mom and dad, a pony she sits on for the TV from Grandma and Grandpa, a new baby doll from Brian's mom, kitchen stuff from Connie and Dan. We had a great time and we are so grateful for everything and we love our friends and family and hope they had a wonderful holiday season.
