Hannah might get ya!
November 10, 2014
It was Saturday which means there's a good chance Heath is home. I was doing the dishes and Heath and the kids went outside. I was watching them as they were playing football. Dad and Hannah vs. Noah and Asher. Heath knelt down to talk about a play with Hannah. The ball was in play and Heath acted like he had the ball but it was really up Hannah's dress (yes, that girl can do anything in a dress). The boys caught on pretty quickly and after they touched her hips there was a good amount of laughter. More plays, more laughter! I was watching what I thought would be great footage for a commercial about family and spending time together. I thought I must be the luckiest girl in the whole wide world and couldn't help but smile. That dad that adored those kids and those kids that adored him right back.
A little later they came into the kitchen. It was time for a picnic on the front lawn. Everyone gathered what they thought might be good for a picnic. A few hot dogs, granola bars, popcorn, and crackers. I was invited too.
Later, I watched a movie called Mom's Night Out. It seemed like the best movie EVER! I could relate to the mom from the very beginning. I laughed out loud and I cried real quiet. Who knew that a tatooed biker dude named Bones could be so profound. It helped me feel a little normal with all the crazy emotions I've been feeling lately. Right before the movie was over Asher came in crying from scratching his back on the bricks outside and Hannah was screaming cause she peed on the bathroom floor. Although I didn't see the end of the movie, I didn't really feel like I needed to. I was living it and for some reason it made me feel like I could handle it all right then.
That was the good part of the day.

I wasn't able to go. I stayed home with Lydia but Heath took the boys and Hannah. Memaw made some chili for the chili cook off.
The kids seemed to love it. They got their faces painted, played games, got candy and ate cupcakes they won from a cakewalk type game. Hannah was ready to go back today.
Did I mention I really hate jaundice and more particularly the lights. It's so rough. She just wants to be cuddled but nooooooo. Her bilirubin was lower today but they still want her in the lights. It will probably be another rough night of little sleep. Ugh! Please let us be done after tomorrow's test!

This girl was born yesterday at 12:07 pm. She was 8 lbs 7 oz and 20 inches long. She's just as cute as she could be and the kids just love her (the proof is in the pictures).
The delivery was as smooth as could be (my 3rd c-section) and I know that we were all being watched over. I have the best doctors and the anesthesiologist was just as nice as he could be. Feeling so blessed and in love with this girl.

Noah turned 8 on Saturday and had a fun birthday party. The kids went up to Dad's school art room and got to make things out of clay. They played games and then in the end they made a sculpture that they wanted to have fired.
I can't believe I have an 8 year old and I can believe baby #4 will be here Monday.
Noah is excited to be baptized and we are excited he has chosen to be baptized. The past few months we have been able to talk about it as a family which has been fun.
My mama and aunt Janna will be here on Saturday. I can hardly wait.

Well, here are a few things that are blog worthy in my opinion. Noah had an infection under his tooth so they put him on an antibiotic, then filled the cavity in the tooth. The next week he had pain in the tooth again. We went to a different dentist and he said the tooth was bad and pulled it. The other dentist was talking about doing a baby root canal. I really didn't want to do that. Glad he's pain free now!
Last Saturday Hannah came running in my room screaming. It was hard to tell what she was saying but I finally got that she had a lego stuck in her nose. I thought for sure we would be paying a visit to the instacare. I finally got her to calm down and was able to pull it out easily (thank you Heavenly Father) with some tweezers. Phew! She was pretty shaken up so I told her the story about Asher putting mini M&M's up his nose but that they melted and he had chocolate and a rainbow of colors coming from his nose
Noah started flag football and is loving it. Asher loves practicing with him and can't wait until he's old enough.
Also, we've been looking at houses which is really exciting and crazy at the same time. With the baby due in 5 weeks I think we'll take a little break from it unless a really good deal comes up.
Next month will be a little crazy. The baby will be here, it will be Noah's birthday and we will be preparing for his baptism. All very exciting!
I think that's all our excitement.
Wait one more thing...last Thursday all the local schools were on lockout because a man robbed a bank, took some hostages, and fled in a car. He ended up ditching the car with the hostages in it (thank goodness). It was very near Noah's school so they were not letting anyone in or out. The robber started shooting at the police (I guess he had a death wish) and did eventually got shot and killed. Noah didn't get home from school until 6:15 (3 hours later than normal).
