1st of all I am so lucky to have a husband that can make me laugh even when I'm in labor:) We waited all day at the hospital to get induced but apparently it was a crazy baby having day so I didn't een get put in a room until about 4;45pm on the 27th. One lady even had a baby in the parking lot!!!!! Anyways they hooked me up to ptosin and well the rest is fun from there. If any one is ever planning on having a baby or doing the labor thing I have a suggestion to make...first don't get induced lol and if you do get a birthing ball they make the contractions a bit more bearable, cause ptosin sure as heck makes them worse:) anyways Dilynn was born at 3:14 in the morning on May 28th. He wieghed 7lbs. 2 oz and was 20 inches long with a head circumferance of HUGE...lol ok it was 14 inches but thats HUGE!!!! the cord was wrpped around his neck but the Doctor was all over it and everything was fine:) When I first saw the little man I thought to myself..."I already had that baby???" no joke he looks exactly like his big bro di so I'll have to post pictures of both and see if anyone can tell a differance...its a little crazy...kinda like having identicle twins two and a half years a part:) Dilynn is named after my Dad and Grandpa who's first names are Lynn and his middle name is after my Grandfather who we called Pa who was an incredible man that meant the world to me:) He actually passed away unexpectadly on March 13th. One night while I was visiting him in the Hospital Dilynn was moving like crazy and My grandfather got to feel him kicking and I told him we were naming him after him. It was emotional and my grandfather couldn't talk but he smiled and got teary. He passed about a week later and I'm pretty sure he called in a favor for me cause Dilynn had some kidney issues that cleared up a few days later. He is a super good baby and such a blessing to have in our home:) I hate being pregnant but hte rewards are indescribable and so so so so worth it:) Matthew is being so helpful and is such a loving big brother:)

So so so sad...Matthew decided it was funny to run away from mom in the his grandma ritchie's driveway and well the outcome wasn't pretty. He tripped and fell and his ginormous head withthe momentum of the fall carried him into the bottom of the car and well the rest is covered by this huge band aid...eith eyeballs on it. I of course freaked when we were both covered in blood( not my forte) and Kurt was of course at the Hospital at work so I had to rely on my Mom who had just had shoulder surgery the day before and only had the use of one arm....that woman is a life saver and incredible. She drove us to the urgent care where they had to sedate him and do 3 stitches on the inside and 8 on the outside....would have had more but the sedation was wearing off and he wasn't having it:) He just kept screaming "i no want fix it!!!!" Poor kid. I knew it was going to happen eventually this kid is so wild and crazy and well not that coordinated just yet but it'll be a fun story later for him I guess.
Matthew and his Bapa playing in the water:) why does Utah have all the cool stuff???????
Aunt Carrie and cousin William....So cute:)
Aunt Carrie and cousin William....So cute:)
Well since I don't feel that cute being 35 weeks prego I decided to only take goofy pics since trying to look good is useless:)
Matthew seriously DUG this place...it freaked him out a first but by the time we left I had a kicking screaming drag out fight getting him out hte door:)...wish we had one here in Albuquerque.
My little Ham of a man:)
Just thought this was adorable....Matthew was so entertained just watching his cousin wendel and his Uncle Gabe play video games.
He couldn't wait to show me his art project....lol and he was so proud of himself...how do you get mad at that?
Roaring is a special talent of Matthew's...wether it be a lion, a tiger a bear, or a dinosaur:)
The last few weeks before baby Dilynn came I was feeling sad about not having these special times with my little Matthew man. He is so special to me and so much a part of my heart that I was worried how I ould ever love anyone else so much. I am in awe of this little man and his spunk for life and the joy he finds in the smallest things...He bings me to tears (in laughter) on a daily basis with the things he does and says and I am so incredibly blessed to be his mother. I can't wait to see what he does next:)
