Lori and Forde came home Monday afternoon.  Thanks to Lori's sister Cyd, we had some time when we got home to get him settled in.  I'm not sure what we would do if we weren't so blessed to have both Lori's family and mine so close, to help with the Twins while I spent all of my time up at the hospital helping Lori.  THANKS FAMILY!

I slapped on a few photos of Forde and the family.

"Holla' Holla' I finally got a son!

Kylan and Forde

Ky really wanted to hold Forde, so we decided to give her a go.

Welcome to the world! Baby Forde

Since Lori is recovering I'll slap on a post or 2.

Lori woke up at about 5:00am, and said she was have MAD contractions, well maybe she didn't say MAD, but she was having allot of them.  So I ran out to mow the lawn really quick, I'm not sure why but I just felt like it needed to be done.  I'm actually kidding about the lawn mowing.

When we got up to McKay Dee Hospital, they put her in a room and checked to see if how she was progressing- "Dilated to a 3" Lori wanted to try for a vaginal, but as time went on, every contraction she had, the babies heart rate would drop.  So the Doc recommended a C-Section ASAP, to get the kid out.

Forde Zarahemla Bruce, was born Saturday the 25th @ at about 8:45am.
6 lbs 10 oz.  He came out Kicking and Screaming like a little Champ.  Healthy as can be no NICU for this kid.  I'm kidding about the middle name, we haven't decided on one yet.  But I will tell you this kid has suction like a Kirby Vacuum.

Here is a small Video Clip of Forde and the Family.

baby will be born saturday, April 26th

    Ok so we finally have a date to have baby Forde! I am going 
to have a c-section again, because I am not progressing at all and since I have 
a previous c-section It will be safer than trying to go if I am not going to make any 
progress. I have to admit I was a little disapointed but all in all what ever is 
safer for me and the baby is fine with me.... 
    Now Nate sees things differently he sees the $ signs in all of this and how 
much more expensive it is going to cost us, And I keep telling him not to stress 
and worry about it because in my opinion dr's have to go through so much schooling and 
work crazy hours that they earn every penny...  I certainly would not want to go through
all that, well I am very relieved and excited since this has been the longest 9 months 
  ever!   My next post will be pictures of the baby.

Here are some pics of the babies room!

   These were taken by me so I know if they dont look great 
or you cant see things well, I am not a great picture taker.  I normally 
would let Nate take care of that kind of thing but since he isnt here and I told
steph I would get some pics posted. But you all get the general idea!

                    Yes its true we have chosen a name! And I know its about time, 
            since he will be here in about a week. And I made sure I already did his name
                 so there is no chance of us changing it again.

belly pics!

  well I know some people wanted some better pics of my growing belly,
let me just warn you its a scary sight and I know you will probably be very shocked...
I know I am every time I go to the Dr.   LOL! maybe thats because I feel like I am getting bigger everyday and still nothing is happening no action going on what so ever. I think 
if this little guy had it his way he would stay in there forever. I have however been taking some of your advice but unfortunatly nothing seems to be working.  I am going tonight to get a back and foot massage for prego women, and so I am hoping that just might start a little something I will keep you all updated... .

Ahhhhh! I am going to go crazy....

Ok so today was my dr. app and I was expecting to 
go in and have him tell me I was dialating or making 
some sort of progress, I mean I feel like I am going to burst.
   And then he tells me I will most likely not go before may 1st which 
by the way is after my due date , And he wont even consider 
starting me. help anyone out there please if there is anyway 
that you know of to put me  into labor faster let me know, I am at the
point I will try anything....

We are finally dog free!

Ok so I know I should be more sad, But really I am more 
relieved than anything. We had Rocky for almost 3 years and he has been a great dog, really easy... But he sheds sooooooo much 
and it was so bad I couldnt take it anymore.
     I didnt mind so much at our old home we did not have any carpet there, but ever since we moved into our new home it sticks to the carpet and it just grosses me out.  Maybe its because I am due in 3 weeks with our new little guy and I didnt want him rolling around in hair.  
            I do feel a tiny bit guilty he was super cute and now Lundyn keeps going over to 
the place where he sleeps and pointing and I think she is confused. Well I really would love to get a dog again maybe in about a year but one that doesnt shed at all...

April, 9th 2008

Ok so I am trying to get organized here, well before the baby
comes. So I am going through pics of the girls when they were babies and
the past 5 1/2 years basicly so I can do books for them to have when they are older 
and I figure if I get theres caught up I will be able to stay caught up on this new one.
    Advice for you all do not fall behind because I am finding it oh so challenging 
to start this massive project. But after I found some of these pics I couldnt  resist
on posting them
 Ok the girls 1st easter!   How freakin cute.
I so wish time could stand still it goes by way to fast.                           
kylan to the left and lundyn below.

Wish me luck on this project!
