One Week Old

I can't believe how quickly this week has gone. Every second has been a joy and we feel so completely blessed to have Dallas join our family. We are so in love with him!! He is such a good baby. Always so content and rarely cries. He LOVES his binki and holds it with his hands to keep it in!! He loves to be on his side. You can't get him to be on his back for anything!! He has the longest skinniest little legs and he sticks them straight out all the time! It is so hilarious!! He is such a joy!! We love you little Dallas!!!

Cute or not cute?

I just have to tell you all that first I love birds!!! I love hearing them chirp and seeing them bathe in puddles and get worms and everything!! They are so peaceful to watch!! I used to have a bird in fact- he was a lot of fun!!! My love for birds is beginning to be less and less I'm afraid. The reason is because our neighbors have a birds nest on top of one of their pillars on their house. The eggs hatched not too long ago and all I EVER hear is the annoying squawking of these baby birds. It really is quite annoying!! I just want to tell the mama bird to give them more food to keep them quiet!! They are so super loud and squawk at the worst times of the day (like my nap time!!!). I can't wait for these baby birds to be big birds and can go build a nest of their own somewhere else!! Until then I get to be annoyed!!

Picnic and our scare

I love Friday's because I don't have to work!! A few weeks ago Melissa and I decided to meet at Thanksgiving point and go to the tulip festival. Things didn't work out so we didn't see the tulips but we went to Provo and ate lunch with uncle Mike at a park! It was so much fun!!!
Mike and Tyler found this drinking fountain that sprayed like 5 feet in the air!! They had a ton of fun with it!! They were rude to Dylan and would turn it on while he was walking past it!! It was pretty fun to watch though! We had a blast!!
Melissa is so good at taking pictures of me to keep record! This was at 34 weeks I believe. I can't believe how big our little guy is getting!! Watching Mike play with Tyler and Dylan it just makes me so excited!! He's going to be such an amazingly wonderful father!!
And for our scare...last night I started to bleed quite a bit so we went to the hospital about midnight. They hooked me up to all the monitors and watched me and Dallas for a little over an hour. I was contracting about every 7 minutes and when they checked everything I am dilated to a 3 and 80% effaced. They sent us home around 3. I went to the Dr this morning and I'm still at a 3 but 85% effaced. He told me to try to keep him in for another week. It's crazy to think it could be really soon, but it could also be 4 weeks too!! Mike said he was so excited and was hoping that we could have had him last night! He can't wait to get his hands on him! We'll see what Dallas has in mind!!
