Summer Wrap-up

I can't believe summer is over. It went by way to fast. I thought being big and pregnant I'd be happy for it to be over so I could have a baby, but I wish it could have lasted a little longer. We have been busy this past month and a half playing, playing playing. My sister and her kids were in town so we felt like we needed to fit everything in before they went home last weekend. Here are some pictures of our fun times.

Bear Lake this year was so fun. The weather was absolutely perfect. I took it easy the entire week because I was about 2 weeks away from my due date and really didn't want to go into labor on vacation. My family was so good to me and really just let me relax and enjoy myself. Carson had a great time and truly believed he was a cowboy and rode anything he could like a bull. Chill had to work so he was only able to be with us for a day. Jared had to stay in Florida and we missed him. Someday we'll all be able to enjoy vacations together again!!

And Even More Bear Lake

You know I feel like we have only just begun with little accidents and Carson. So even though I was tired and worn out from being so pregnant, we decided to go to our ward party up City Creek Canyon. We knew Carson would have a great time so we went. Everything was great and we all had a great time. Well on the way home, Carson said, "My rock is in my ear." Chill and I were both like what? He said, "I put my rock in my ear." For real? Why would you put a rock in your ear, seriously. I was dying! When we got home Chill took a look and tried to get it with tweezers, but it was deep. So off we went to InstaCare. The doctor took one look and said sure enough there was a rock in there but he wasn't even going to attempt to get it and we'd have to take him to Primary Childrens to see an ENT. I was thinking that was just great and the last thing I needed. To make matters worse it was Friday night so we had to wait until Monday to get it taken care of. We couldn't do anything about it so we just went on with all that was going on and planned to take care of it Monday. We I went into labor Sunday night so while I was in the hosptial, Chill had to take Carson to get to rock out. Carson was a champ and did great while the doctor pulled it out. He got a dinosaur when he was done so he was happy. Look close at some of the pictures and you can see how dang tiny the rock was!

"The Rock"

Well little Bailey came a day and a half earlier than I had planned. My doctor was out of town and I just really wanted him to be there. I mean I figured if he was with my for 9 months, he shouldn't miss the party right? Well Bailey had other plans and she came! Sunday was like any other Sunday, went to church, napped, hung out at my parents for dinner, went home, and went to bed. About 1 am I woke up and could not sleep. I was in some pain, but didn't want to believe I was in labor. Chill was working over night at the hospital, so it was just me and my little buddy Carson. Once I realized I might be in labor I jumped in the shower and did my hair and my make up. I was not able to have this baby without looking presentable. I decided to pack my bag, get the cameras ready and call Chill to let him know what was going on. We decided I'd head to the hospital to get thing checked out and then go from there. I called my parents at 3 am and they came right away. My dad stayed with Carson and my mom took me to the hospital. I was kind of in a bad mood because I did not want to be in labor. I told the receptionist, "I think I'm in labor but I don't want to be" everyone was really sweet at the hospital and they broke the news very nicely that I was definitely in labor and was a 5 and 90% thinned. So I had to come to terms with the fact that Bailey was coming and coming soon. I called Chill and he had to wrap things up at work. Luckily they didn't break my water until he got there because he wouldn't have made it. After they broke my water I progressed really fast. When I was fully dialated it took all of a minute to get Bailey out. 1 contraction and 4 pushes and out slipped our little cutie! Everything went great and the whole experience was wonderful. It was pretty fun that I had her on 8/9/10 at 9:08 and she was 7lbs 6 oz so I guess numbers were on my side that day...8,9,10,9,8,7.6. Kind of fun!

After Bailey was born we had to fit in a few more things before summer was over and before Nat and the kids went home. We hit the Bees game where Carson got a fly ball (okay the people behind us caught it but gave it to him. They also gave him a little bat and he was on cloud 9) we went to the zoo, the aquarium, Kangaroo Zoo, the dinosaur museum, the gardens at Thanksgiving Point and of course much much more. We had a great summer and are enjoying every minute of our little Bailey
