He's finally here!

Adam Matthew Mason finally decided to join the family 7 days "late". I woke up around 5 am and started timing my contractions. They were about 10 min apart and not very intense. At 6am I got up and showered and woke Joe. After getting a few things ready we gathered up Isaac and Jacob and headed for Grandma and Grandpa's house. We dropped the boys off to Grandma by 7am and went straight to the hospital. I got checked in around 7:20 or 7:30. Lots of pain and 67 minutes later... at 8:37am our sweet baby Adam arrived in the world!

When the nurse said "He's a boy!" All I could do was laugh! Three boys! Wow! Joe said, "Just two more and we will have a basketball team". Then they told us how big he was... Ten pounds, twelve ounces... 23 inches long, 14 1/4 head. He has big feet and big hands! Very long fingers and toes! And lots of light brown/reddish hair.

We are so happy to have another baby boy!
Big brothers Isaac and Jacob came later in the afternoon to meet their little brother. They are happy to have him here!
Although Isaac asked me earlier today: "Mommy, when are we going to have a sister?"
Me: "Not for a few years at least"
Isaac: "Why?"
Me: "Because we have a new baby brother this time!"
Isaac: "OK" :)
Friday Evening we had a whirlwind of visitors. The whole family showed up at the same time. Grandma, Grandpa, Auntie Jamie, Great Grandma Afton, Great Uncle David, Great Auntie Darla, Uncle Jared, Auntie Jessica, Cousins Alysa, Drew, Emma, Avery, Uncle Jason, and Auntie Rachal. Everyone came to see little Adam and give us their love. It was a little overwhelming, but still nice to see everyone. Thank you!

Later Joe went home with Isaac and Jacob and Adam and I had to spend the night in the hospital.

The next day we stayed at the hospital most of the day while Joe and the kids stayed at home. By the time we were released I was more than ready to go home.
We had time for dinner (thank you Sister Todd) and lots of cuddling on the couch.

The boys took turns holding baby brother.
Sunday we stayed at home all day to rest.
Adam was awake long enough to get some pictures with his beautiful eyes open.

After nap we all went out to enjoy the sunshine!
Joe had fun taking pictures of his new baby boy! He's such a wonderful Daddy!

Still waiting...

Just so you know... Yes I am still pregnant. Baby has decided he/she is not ready to come yet.
As of Thursday ( 4 days ago) I was already dilated 4cm! But I have not had any consistent contractions or anything. And despite my exercising every day, and a few other tricks... Baby doesn't want to come out yet.
So, I am trying to keep myself busy until the big day finally arrives. I just hope that day comes soon!

Five Years!

Happy Anniversary Babe!
I can't believe it's been 5 years already. I don't know what I would ever do without you! You are an amazing husband and wonderful friend.


Two days to go, until my due date.
Waiting is so lame! I'm tired of being pregnant, uncomfortable, and crabby all the time! My poor kids have gotten the worst of me lately just because I'm so grumpy from being tired and hurting.
Baby it's time to come join the family, Mommy is tired of waiting!

We went "camping" with our family. Really we drove out to the Bird Creek campgrounds and played for a few hours before driving home.

My boys had lots of fun running around and playing in "the forest".

We had quiet a scare with little Jacob. While I was busy helping Isaac find a snack, Jacob decided to go exploring all by himself. I realized he was missing and went looking for him. I don't think I've ever been so scared in my life. He was probably only gone for about 60 seconds, but it felt like forever to me!

Luckily, he came toddling out of the bushes somewhere and found me. He of course thought it was funny, while I am crying my eyes out. Sigh! I'm just thankful he didn't get too far away.

On a happier note... I went into the boys' room Sunday morning to wake them before church and found this. Fast asleep and cuddling. So cute!
I love my boys!
