Gavin is HERE!!

Well, I knew after I posted that other message, Gavin would choose to show up!

Thursday, February 17th, I woke up with contractions as 6-7 minutes.  As the morning wore on, they got closer and more intense.  We had a doctor’s appointment anyway, so we headed there at 9am, and the doctor sent us right to the Hospital.  We checked in at 10am.  Then, I labored for about 4-5 hours without much difficulty.  Then, he decided it was time to come…my water broke, and my doctor was still 15 minutes from the hospital.  Thus they called the doctor who is on stand by…she showed up, and 3 pushes later, he arrived:


He came in at 8 pounds 2 ounces, 21 inches long at 3:42pm on the 17th.  He is as healthy as can be!!

My mom came in and helped out with the other kids along with sister, and Brian’s parents.  Thank goodness!!! 

We have a number of other pictures on our picasa site at:

Ethan & Nyla are being great older siblings!!  Ethan is sharing his favorite bear with Gavin and Nyla likes to get him his pacifier.  Well sometimes she keeps it, but it is all good…

Thanks for the well wishes!!

Baby Update

Well, I am not sure how many people may be looking for baby updates, so I thought I would get something up here real quick.  Today is his due date…and nothing yet.  He seems to be perfectly content with where he is. 

Alas, many of you (if many actually read this), may be wondering where we have been. In mid-December we did move into our beautiful new house on the southern side of Parker.  We are enjoying every moment in it. 

Since then, Patti’s sister got a job in the Springs and we all helped her move in.  Unfortunately, during the move, Brian go into an accident in the Suburban.  NOBODY WAS HURT!!!! Thank the Good Lord for that!  However, it did result in a totaled vehicle. Sad smile  We got a decent payout for it and purchased a Yukon Denali through some connections and got a good deal on that!  Needless to say, we have been quite busy running around and getting all this stuff sorted out and taken care of before baby arrives. 

Mom came in from California last week to help out with the kids and help get Baby’s room together.  She has been a great help and a true God-send. 

Life in all is good, and now we are just playing the waiting game until this little guy decides it is time to join this crazy family.

Hope life is treating you all well!

God Bless!
