Wayne and I have been married for almost 3 years. We have 3 kids, 2 year old Beautiful twin boys Malakai and Maddux! They keep me on my toes but it's the most fun and Baby Kenya, our beautiful sweet little girl. We live in St.George where my husband goes to school and plays football for DSC. I get the fun job and stay home with the kids!
Titan fell asleep with his little hands like that....so comfy!
This picture cracks me up! Titans face says it all doesn't it? sometimes his sisters can smother this kid!
Titan so far has been such a great baby! We see a lot of Maddux and Jayda in him.
my official due date was March 17. Titan was born on Feb 26 at 37 weeks. I was going to be induced on Feb 27 because Titan had some fluid in his kidneys and they wanted him out so they could do some tests on him. (he has some bladder reflux, so when he pees out some starts going back up to his kidneys. It is pretty common and they are hoping he will grow out of it and not need surgery) Anyhow it was Sunday morning and i woke up with some contractions. My pelvic area hurt really bad so i knew he had dropped. I figured they would stop so i started getting ready for church. They kept coming and coming anywhere from 2 to 5 to 10 min. apart. so i decided to stay home with jayda and Wayne took the others to church. By the time they got back at 2 i knew i was in labor and that i would stick it out til i couldn't stand it anymore and then go in. It was my turn to cook for dinner (we go to my parents house for Sunday dinner and it was my turn to cook) so in between trying to breath through contractions i made a lasagna! at about 4:30pm we headed to my moms and i told Wayne we better go to the hospital, that it was time. so we dropped off the food and the kids to my parents, and told my mom we would call her to tell her how far i was dilated. We got to the hospital and got all hooked up to the monitors and the nurse checked me and viola....8cm dilated. side note... this was sooooo similar to my last labor with Jayda. it was a Sunday and i went into labor, got to the hospital at an 8 no time for an epidural and she was born within the hour. so when i heard 8 i thought well here we go again. They asked if i wanted and epidural and i said "well i did it last time so i think i can do it again". They called Dr. Rogers, he luckily lives down the street from the hospital. He got there still in his church suit and checked me and said "I think you can start pushing". He said he was afraid he would miss the delivery if he went and changed into his scrubs so he put a cover up thing over his suit and we were ready! I pushed 3 times...............holy pain of all pain, and he was out!!!! ahhhh i was so relived when he came and that i didn't have to push for hours with no epidural. it was a great labor and just like jaydas less than an hour from when we got there he was born. he was 8 pounds 1 oz and 3 weeks early. he would have been huge if i would have gone to my due date. i guess my body knew it was time! The nurses i had were great and my mom, grandma Ruth, little sister Kimmy (her first time getting to see a baby born) and Wayne, plus the nicu people were in there. also they asked if a guy that is training to become and E.R /ambulance driver needed to view a birth so they asked me and i said ya i didn't care. i didn't notice him in there anyway. I am very grateful to have had such a great delivery and such a great baby. He is so much fun to have around and I am loving it. He is 4 weeks old already...wow time flies!!
