Our precious little boy was born July 8th, 2009 (for those of you that are as nerdy as me his birthday is : 7/8/09...kinda cool right?). He was born exactly on his due date, my Dr. told me that only 7% of babies are born on their actual due date. Contractions started at around 3:30 a.m. I went into my Dr's at around 8:30 a.m. and I was already 7 cm dilated! I had two great fears: 1) I wouldn't be dilated at all and they would send me home to wait in misery until I could be admitted to the hospital (aka what happend with Audrey) or 2) I would be too far dilated to get an epideral. Luckily, I did not have anything to worry about. So I went to the hospital, got the epideral after about 1/2 an hour and then I slept until 3:30 pm when Phoenix was born. Everything went perfectly. Phoenix weighed 6 lbs 11 oz and he was 21 inches long. This is right after Phoenix was born.
I was glad that my Mom and Jo were in town to help with Audrey (it was a HUGE help!). Brighton was extremely excited when he came to visit, which of course made Audrey excited. It was very cute to watch.
This is my little fella on his way home.

We started our July 4th celebration one day early this year. We met up with Janae and Jared and we had hotdogs and corn on the cob at a park. Did you ever notice how the same food that you would ordinarily cook at your house tastes better when you cook it in the great outdoors? Jared made a rocket with Brighton's help, so we got to witness the launching. Travis got some fireworks (maybe firecrackers...I am not sure what the difference is) to finish the night off.
I am in love with this picture of Audrey and Brighton.
