Tuesday, June 7, 2011
As you may already know, our blog disappeared. I have slacked getting it going again, but we have had some major life changes and I decided it was time. First of all, on May 7, 2011 Dillon graduated with his Bachelors Degree. YAHOO!!
I am so proud of him!!
It was great because Jordan and Nicole (Dillon’s brother and his wife) also graduated the same day. In fact, they were all in a row. It was awesome!
Our family of three at the graduation. It was only a family of three for six more days until Samuel John Anderson was born on May 13th.
It was a very long day in the hospital. My water broke at 1:30 in the morning (Friday morning) and we had to go in to the hospital so I could get antibiotics but I wasn’t having any contractions. Finally at 8:00am they started me on Pitocin to get the labor going. . . then at 4:30pm it actually started and it started HARD AND FAST!
Samuel was born at 7:25 that night.
A very happy big sister holding her little brother for the first time.
Grandparents Anderson (some how I didn’t get pics of any of the Oborns)
My midwife and the nurse kept commenting on his big feet. Then, when they did his footprint he stretched out all of his toes, it was hilarious!
Getting weighed and measured, not very happy about it though.
Father and Son.
Dillon decorated the front steps so the neighborhood knew the baby had come and that we were home.
About 3 days old.
Lucy loves to talk to Sam. This is a common occurrence to have her this close to his face.
Mom and Lucy giving Sam his first bath. . .
which he did not enjoy. . .
but he fell right to sleep afterward.
Wild hair day!
All dressed for his first day of church at 9 days old. So many people commented about his dark skin and cute clothes.
Mittens were a must the first few weeks so he wouldn’t scratch himself.
He immediately tries to roll to his side when I put him to bed. Nothing is more peaceful than a sleeping baby!
All in all, we’ve had some major changes. It was an end of one life(school!) and a beginning of another all in the same week!
