I can't believe my baby is already a month old. Where does the time go. He has been such a good baby, and Keyton seems to have adjusted to him pretty well. I think he loves him a little too much, he can't leave him alone even when he's trying to sleep. Whenever anyone even looks at Seth, Keyton says, "he's cute huh?" We have been so busy lately, it has been crazy. And we are very glad to have Dad back. It was a little rough without him, but we survived. Here are some pics of things we have been up to lately. We went to grandma's, the lake, fishing, and bike riding. Good times. Hope everyone reading if having as much fun as we are.

Having Fun

We are really enjoying our little one and can't believe he's already been here 2 1/2 weeks. Trevor had to go to a military training on Friday and will be gone for 2 weeks. When he gets back, Seth will already be a month old. Time flies! Just thought I would post some pics of things going on lately. Keyton loves his "little buddy" and wants him to sleep with him at night.
This was on the 4th of July. Don' they look sweet????

Watching Dad fly away at the airport. After the plane left the ground, then came the tears.

Things have been busy, but that's what keeps us going. I just have to say how grateful I am for a husband who is willing to serve our country and loves doing it. We love him for it and will definitely miss him while he is gone.

So Little Time

Holy cow! Do you ever have a spare moment with 2 kids? By the time we all get ready for the day, it's already noon. Then, if I'm not nursing the baby (which it seems like I'm doing nonstop) then I'm trying to give Keyton the attention that he is just dying for. Seems like it would be easy but, when your bottom hurts, your you know whats on top hurt, and your insides hurt, this just isn't so easy. However I must say I am recovering much faster with this one than I did with Keyton. Okay so I promised more pics and a story so I will try my best to keep it as short as possible so I don't bore you all to death. Since I wasn't thinning at all, I decided to get started which I was dreading. I went in to the hospital at 8:30 Tuesday night and they put the first Cytotec in (cytotec just thins your cervix and can start contractions) I got the next one at 1:30 and they wanted me to sleep but yeah right, I had way too much on my mind. By 4:30 I was feeling pretty strong contractions. They checked me about 5:30 and I was dilated to a 5. The nurse was like "are you sure you don't want an epidural" and I decided to get one. You forget how bad those contractions really hurt. The guy came in and got it in by 6:30 and by then I was dilated to a 9. I started pushing at 6:50 and had him at 7:01. Pretty quick labor again. And I must say I loved the epidural. I stopped the pain but I could still feel enough pressure to know when to push and could feel him come out. When he got out, he was blue and they got him breathing once they moved him to the table. All the blood vessels in his face were popped and he looked like one big bruise. Come to find out, he had the cord around his neck when he came out. I had wondered if he did and when I asked Trevor he said he couldn't tell cause it all happened so fast. But when we took him into the nursery after he was 2 days old, the nurse was like, "I remember you, the one with the cord around your neck." Thanks for letting us know doc! His bruising has gone away and now he is just getting the little baby acne. Poor kid. But he is still the cutest thing ever and I love him to pieces. I am really stingy with this one. I don't like to share him with anyone else. I think it's just because now I realize how fast the time goes and they aren't this little for very long. And now my baby is awake (I can hear him on the monitor) so I must get back to nursing. Wish me well!
