Welcome Nixon!

Nixon is finally here! He was born on July 21 and weighed 8 lbs 7 oz, and is 21 in. Labor went really well and I really liked the hospital and staff that we delivered at. Nixon is very healthy and happy. I couldn't have asked for better.
Wow, 4 kids really changes things. I didn't really think the second or the third changed things too much, but 4, definately. Livy and Hillie can't keep their hands off him. I had to put up a child gate to my room so that they would give Nixon and myself some space. I have already had a meltdown and am hoping that it will get better.
Now I have to focus on getting my body back in shape... maybe next week.

Hillie sings "happy birthday" to herself

Sorry, I don't know how to change the position so picture is upright.

Hillie's Birthday Weekend!

Micah and I decided since the baby is coming soon, and Hillie's birthday was on sunday, that we would take the girls out for a fun filled day on Saturday. We went to the Living Aquarium first, the girls pet sting rays, and saw jelly fish. Then later we went to the movie, UP in 3D, and then ended up at McDonalds for dinner. It was something we have never really done and probably won't do for a long time. We were glad we did it, the girls had so much fun.
Yesterday we had Phil and Brecken and their kids over along with my sister Ilene for cake and ice cream. I have been so forgetful lately, that it didn't even dawn on me to do cake or even get her a present until Sat. evening. I can't believe she is two years old now. Time flies by, that is for sure. Here are some of my fav pics from the weekend.

Elsa and her nebulizer. She needs her sisters to be there with her.

Yesterday We took the family along with Micah's Sister and her Family, and Micah's brother and his family to the open house at the Oquirrh Mtn Temple. It was really neat to see. It is a bit smaller than most temples, but definately just as beautiful. Micah and I feel a special connection already with this temple, because, we have had the opportunity to go and work there assisting in the open house festivities. We will also be in its district, so we can't wait to go and be patrons next month. Being apart of this experience has made me so greatful for the blessings the temple gives us. I know I would not be the kind of person I am today without its blessings and promises.

Fourth of July!

Fourth of July was great! We went up to Logan and attended the Hyrum Parade in the early afternoon. The kids got a lot of treats and the weather was really decent. I was very pleased. Later, we of course went to the Cruise-in where its all different kinds of cars parading up and down mainstreet, while people sit curbside and watch.( no pics, sorry ) Nothing really changes with either event, but I think that is why I love it so much. Its Tradition!

I am still pregnant. Getting down to the end. I have got a couple weeks left. It has really hit me this past week and I have slowed down. It is becoming difficult and exhausting to do the simplest of tasks, I am pathetic. I even have come down with either a sinus infection or ear infection. I am not sure yet, I will see my Dr. tomorrow.

Elsa, I think, has the same thing, however hers is a little worse. We took her to the Dr. on wed. thinking it was an ear infection. Dr tells us that she has some fluid in her lungs and we have to go to primary childrens for an xray to see how much fluid is actually in there. Luckily, we caught it early and she is okay. We have to give her breathing treatments with a nebulizer four to six times a day. She is such a trooper. Wearing the mask scares her a bit, but Livy is quick to sit next to her and hold her hand until it is done. It is really sweet.

It seems that we are just waiting now, I have got everthing ready to go and so time really seems to be dragging. We are very excited to finally see this little guy.
