"Mommy, when I smack your arm it makes waves!"
Is that his subtle way of telling me that I need to spend more time in the gym?
I was curious as to what he would say about his dad's arm so I said, "Does Daddy's do that too?"
After trying it on Andrew he said, "Um.....yeah." Then he paused and tried it again, "but not really."
The truth hurts!

First family Picture
I'm so lucky to have such a beautiful wife
Saturday, December 6, 2008
We had a great Thanksgiving weekend. We did Thanksgiving dinner with a few other families who decided not to brave the holiday traffic to do Thanksgiving with their families, and had a lot of fun!
I had to put in this cute picture of Andrew reading 'The Cat in the Hat' to the boys on Thanksgiving night.
And the most exciting news of all is that Parker is potty trained! It's been about a month now and we have not had any accidents in about 3 weeks! We are so very happy that he is potty trained, having 2 kids in diapers is no fun.

My Grandma and Grandpa Albertson, Amy, and me w/Tristan walking into the park
Of course because it is October everything is decorated like Halloween. It's fun to be there at night when all the pumpkins are lit up.
Tristan slept most of the day while I carried him arround in the baby carrier. My back was killing me by the end, but Tristan sure was happy.
Standing in line is one of our favorite things to do.

The morning I was scheduled to be induced the hospital called me at 5:30 am to tell me they were too busy to get me in and asked that I call back every three hours until they had an opening. I pretty much figured I would not be getting induced that day and just hoped I would have the baby before my parents had to go back home. To my surprise I got a call that afternoon from them asking me to come in.
When we got to the hospital my nurse checked me and I was dilated to "almost" a 4. I had been having contractions all day, but that really wasn't anything new, so I was surprised to find that I was dilated that much. Who knows, maybe I would of had the baby that day anyway. They started me on a low dose of pitocin at around 3:30 pm. After getting my epidural at around 5:00 pm, which didn't really do much for my pain but it sure sped up my labor, I went from a 4 to a 10 in about an hour. After finding out I was fully dilated the nurse went to get my doctor. She came back a bit frazzled and trying to hold back tears while telling us that my doctor was doing a c-section and she couldn't find another doctor to deliver me. Whether she had been crying because of my situation or something else I will never know, but seeing her like that didn't really put me at ease. Any way, she told me not to push (yeah, right) and left the room in search of a doctor. Luckily she found one quickly and the baby was born a few minutes later at 6:18 pm!
Tristan has a shocked looked that he gets every so often. I am just starting to realize that he gets it a lot more often when his brothers are around.
We are so happy to have Tristan in our home! And even though he adds a whole new level of craziness to our lives, we could not imagine him not being here and we love him very much!
