Catch Up #2

On July 4th we took the kids to the zoo for the first time. Brady slept the whole time but Lily loved seeing the animals.

In the middle of July we received bad news. My grandpa on my mom's side had lung cancer that had spread to his brain. He went to the hospital on a Saturday evening and within a couple days was already not remembering people. I took the kids to see him on Tuesday and thankfully he did remember me. 
Heres the only picture I have of him with Brady. 
He was able to go home after a week in the hospital. On July 23rd, he passed away with my grandma and his children by his side. 

August came and we celebrated our 4 year anniversary as well as my 28th birthday. 
Hubs got me my first pair of boots as my anniversary/bday gift!
Love them!

We also attended a Chris Cagle concert this month. Thanks to my sister in law for the tickets! It was first concert we've ever been to together.

September 1st we celebrated Brandon's birthday. 
A few days later we found out my brother & sister in law are expecting their second child. I can't wait to see if I'll be getting another niece or nephew in May!

Fast forward to September 21st. Lily's 3rd birthday!! I took her to get her very 1st manicure...or basically just nails painted. She got to pick out the polish which was of course glitter. She was very shy the whole time until we left. ;) I think she enjoyed it anyway. 
Later that evening we had a small party at our house with family. She had a blast! 

September 28th, we went to the local pumpkin patch with my brother, sister in law, & my nephew. All of the kids had a great time! 

A few days later it was October. Here's a few pictures to show you what we did this month. 

Lily decorated her pumpkin in Hello Kitty duct tape.

We visited my grandma in the nursing home.

We played at the park.

Had to get a new mailbox. :(

Got our family pictures taken!

Got treats at the Zoo, saw the penguins, & went trick or treating!
Happy Halloween!!

Catch up

So to catch you up since that was a long time ago. We've celebrated Lily's first, second, & now third birthdays, moved into our own house, and had our son, Brady Lee. There have been many other milestones & not so great happenings that I'll recap on also. 

This past October I found out I was pregnant with our second child. We had been trying a few months so I was thrilled to see those double lines on the test. The first 12 weeks I had morning sickness as I expected but thank goodness it wasn't as bad as when I was pregnant with Lily. I did, however, have to get weekly 17p injections to prevent having preterm labor  since I had had it while pregnant with Lily.

Fast forward to December when we bought our house and were able to celebrate Christmas just a few weeks after moving in. 

In February, we got a new puppy. A weinaraner we named Barrett.
He's now 10 months old.

The next few months not much happened until May. 

On May 28th I was induced early in the morning to prepare for the birth of our son. 
We had to leave the house very early.
The whole experience was so much easier this time. 
It went pretty slow up until my water was broke at 2:30.
I received nubane around 3:00 ish then an epidural about 30-45 min later. I would say around 5:20ish I told my nurse I felt I needed to push. She checked me and she said yes in fact I was at a 10. She called the doctor and as I layed in the bed trying my hardest not to push, he got ready and the room was prepared for the baby. When he said it was time I pushed 3 times and at 5:45 Brady was born! He was perfect at 7 lbs 14 oz, 20" long. 

I had not allowed anyone at the hospital this time so after we had our bonding time and I had successfully nursed, we called our family so they could visit. My mom brought Lily and after not being sure about her baby brother at first, she now LOVES him!

He's now 5 months old and getting bigger everyday. He's doing great nursing but unfortunately still up about every 2 hours at night. 

Just for fun, here's both kids at 5 months. Just a little size difference. :)
