My Three Kids

The other day I had dressed the kids and noticed that the all had red shirts on and decided to take a few pictures. It gets harder to get them all to look good at the same time. Baylee is such a big helper and Bryson trys to be. They love their little brother so much. I am so grateful for such a loving family.

Baby Charlie!!!!

Sorry it took so long to get pictures of our new little addition to the family but it's been pretty hectic. Charlie joined our family on November 26, at 7:49 AM we found out that we had a baby boy. We thought that we were going to have a girl the whole time. I even bet Darin dad that we were having a girl and now I owe him a milk shake. After hearing we have a boy I was expecting to see a baby with tons of hair. Bryson had tons of hair and so that is why I thought Charlie would too. He is my biggest baby so far weighing 8lbs 10oz and measuring in at 20in. long. Charlie is named after his great grandpa Frank and his middle name is J after my dad. The C-section was alright nothing really huge went wrong during it. After getting my spinal block my heart rate shot up and I started getting really bad pressure on my chest. Then my drug guy gave me something to bring the heart rate down and then I started throwing up everything and then some that could be in my stomach. Other than that the surgery went well. After surgery for some reason I have the tendency of losing blood and no one knows how or were it goes. So I lost a little over 4 units of blood this time. Bryson I lost over 6 and a half last time. When it comes down to it. I think that this delivery is a tie or a little better than the others. Bryson and Baylee love their little brother. Baylee said that we were going to have a girl and wouldn't let change that we would have a boy so I was a little nervous that she would be upset but she was so excited and wasn't upset about having a brother at all. They are both absolutely in love with him already and have to hold him all the time. They are very good with Charlie so far.

The Big Day

This is right before I left to the hospital. I only got 3 1/2 hours of sleep and becuase I am having a C-section I can't wear any make-up, so enjoy.

Darin's new hot rod. It is a 1963 SS Chevy Nova.

Today is the day that we are going in to have our little one. I am so excited and scared. Excited to see what the sex of the baby is, what the baby looks like, but scared of the processor, and the recovery. We spent a lot of time yesterday doing all the things we wanted done before we have the baby. Darin and I got the Christmas lights up and I know that it sounds crazy but hey after Thanksgiving is usually when everyone puts them up and we are not going to have time to do that. We swept and mopped the floors twice yesterday. Once in the morning Darin did them and then Bryson got into the syrup while no one was watching and spilled it everywhere. Let me tell ya it was a blast to clean up. Yes I am being sarcastic when I say that. I painted my finger nails and I had my friend Tasha paint my toes. I went to Khols and picked out a girl and a boy outfit to bring the baby home in and had them hold them for me so my sister can pick one up for me today. Darin sold his hot rod and got a different one that will fit the whole family in it and he had went to pick it up yesterday. He was so excited that he washed it while it was dark out in 35 degree whether. I did all my grocery shopping on Saturday so that I wouldn't have to do it on Monday. Well have to go the surgery. Next post will be of the baby!!!!! Wish me luck cause I'm going to need it.

Do you notice anything different?

I woke up yesterday morning because I heard a loud thump and Bryson screaming. I didn't know what was wrong or what he hit and then later that afternoon I could see where he hit himself. Right smack dab in the middle of his forehead. Nice little bruise huh.

My little Pirate and a tiger in the back.
Bryson was a tiger and as you can see above he was digging into his candy bag when the first piece of candy got in their. He shoved a piece of caramel in his mouth before I could take a picture, and he got made when he took it out of his mouth because he was drooling all over the place. He started the night out being happy and then ended upset because he could shove all the candy into his mouth and wanted all of it right then. He had fun but I think he got tired after a while.
Baylee picked out her costume this year and decided to be a pirate. She loved it. She kept saying Arrrrrrr to everyone. She couldn't wait to get the costume on after she saw some friends of ours show up in theirs. We went to the trunk or treat and Grandma and Grandpa Wallace house. Then we went to my sister JoAnn's neighborhood and made a loop with the cousins. Baylee had a blast with that running from one house to the next. She tend to go into the houses when they opened their doors, and we had to explain to her that she couldn't go into the houses but stand out side of them. She didn't really listen but maybe next year she will be better about it. Baylee would say trick or treat and Bryson would only say treat but that wasn't too often. I can't believe how fast they have grown. Time sure does fly and I can't believe that we are having another little one joining our family soon. WOW
