A month? Really!?

How could my baby boy be one month? I cant believe it! January 24 seems like yesterday and here I am staring at him sleep, his peaceful face brings me such joy. He is adored by his big brother, and anyone else who lays a hand on him. He can hold up his head for long periods of time, he has been to the movies not once or twice but 3 times and sleeps through it(thank the Lord because Dustin and I are big movie buffs), he has destroyed outfits with his blowouts, and best of all he nurses and has no problems with it, just some gas.

I love my boys soooo much!

Holy Moley!

I just went back and read bloggs gone of the past! I have had my blog for a little over a year now! I read about Boy turning 3 and now hes 4. Then I read about trying to concive and Im lying here in bed with my hubby and our 3 week old son, while Boy is in his big boy bed in his room. Time continues to march on, I need to live for today and continue to thank God for his continued blessings!

Meeting Family

Aunt Mandi and Baby Brother. She missed his birth due to my speedy delivery, so Dustin and I let her dress him and hold him for quite a while. Mandi is such an amazing sister and we have become so close over the past couple years.

Cousin M was going to attend as well but was of course was with her mommy. Im sort of glad she missed it because with my yelling I might have hurt her feelings. I love that little girl so much. She turned ten 5 days before the birth.

Peepaw and Bonnie came to meet him too. Peepaw is my Father-in-law and Bonnie is his incredibly sweet wife. They got married on my 22nd Birthday and had a baby boy June 2007. So Boy and Baby have an uncle that will be 2 in June.

Aunt Lisa came to the house for a visit with Uncle Chad. Lisa is very pregnant and was going to be induced soon after the visit. Lisa is such a loving person and we are so thrilled that Chad married her.

Aunt Mandi brought the boys over to meet their new cousin. This is Cousin B, he has the biggest heart and LOVES babies! He is 6 and in Kinder.

This is Cousin TJ. He is exactly 10 months older than Boy. I was privileged to be in the room during his birth on 4-4-04, cool birthday huh. I was pregnant about a month later. He is an incredibly sweet boy.

Aunt Laurie came to visit too! Aunt Laurie is one of my dearest oldest friends. We met Sophomore year in high school and became fast friends. She was my Maid of Honor, and is excited to be "Aunt" to my sons.

Here is the official meeting of the newest Goodwin Cousins. Cousin H is 11 days younger than Baby Brother. We are so thrilled for Chad and Lisa! H is the first girl since Emily who is now a Freshman at BYU!

So these were some of Baby Brothers meetings. We are waiting to meet Noni and Poppy, Uncle Ethan, Auntie Jentry and Cousin T and coming in May Cousin L. We also need to meet the Great Aunts and Uncles and Great Grandparents, and 2nd Cousins BIG family here!

Birth Story!

OK here it goes...
I went in for my apt on the 20th(Tues) and was 3cm at 80% so Alisa(the best midwife ever) stripped my membranes. That night I started having light contractions...all night. So Wed we went for 3 yes 3 walks. Once in the AM around the hood with hubby then at the park with hubby and Raena(BFF/Doula) and then the track at the HS I graduated from, the I went to go get checked 3 and 80 still...not enough to break my water and start real contractions.
I was ordered to rest on thursday, so I sat at home and rested ALL day with small contractions. Then Friday came and so did regular contractions. I had them 3-5min apart lasting 60-90sec all day, because we just went about it as if was a regular day. Shopping going to Chick-Fil-A where Raena met us. Her hubby took our kids after we let them play. I had contractions until 11PM when they just stopped. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! Then I went to bed and had some that would wake me up here and there but nothing to serious. So we called my midwife and she said to meet her at the center at about noon. We took Caleb to my sisters house and went to the birth center. Alisa got there at about 1230 and she checked me(I hadnt been having many contractions...just in the car). I made it to 5 and 90! I hit a wall due to the fact that my bag of water would not break or let Logan decend to continue to dialate me. So at just after 1pm Alisa broke my water. As soon as she did he decended and I want to a 7! I stood up and the contractions hit. 3 min apart and 2 min long. After an hour of leaning on Dustin and nearly falling I begged for the tub. Reana arrived and set up the camerajust after I entered the water. I was in transition and in alot of pain. I really lashed out. I yelled "this effin hurts!!!!" and Alisa said "your right it does effin hurt" I told all three of them to get out...well screamed it anyways. (Meanwhile my sister and niece along with my son are trying to get to the center.) Alisa listened to me and went out of the room for a bit. I kept clenching up my whole body and sceaming instead of letting my body do its thing. I was in pain and pissed. I even yelled that Eve(as in the first woman) was an effin b@#$%. Finally Raena got in my face and told me I was almost done...which was contrary to what was in my head. She told me to relax and let my uteris be the only muscle thats since Raena told me that and the way I somehow always listen to her...I relaxed by shaking my arms through the next 2 conractions. Then I called out "it burns". Raena went out of the room saying "ring of fire, ring of fire" Alisa came in and checked and told me I could push. Really?! I pushed and he crowned I pushed and his head was nearly out and I felt his hairy little head. I pushed again and his head was out. Then I needed to rest a second. I pushed his shoulders out and Alisa told my to pick up my baby, so I pulled him out of the water and on to my chest where I broke into tears and that was it. I had Baby Brother in record time from 5 and 90 to birth in 1 hr and 56 min. It was AMAZING!!!
