Interesting day...

We had an interesting day. One of my mom friends was nice enough to bring us dinner. She came over in the morning to deliver it and let the boys play a little bit. We were in Evan's play room watching the boys play and heard a really weird noise. Didn't really think too much of it, but then Mark comes in a says, "Umm, I think your car might of been hit." We go to look and sure enough some one had slammed into the back of her car. The damage was ridiculous. This 'boy' had to be going pretty fast to cause that kind of damage. It scares me because Evan loves to play in the front yard. Anyway, the cops came out (three of them) and everything was taken care of. We are all just so glad no one was seriously hurt. It could have been so much worse. The kicker is that the 'boy' was texting and that is why he didn't see her car. So sad. Doesn't everyone know not to text and drive!!!! 

On a happier note, here are some pictures:

Having fun playing. 
They love the stairs!!!

Happy 20 months/ Happy 1 week!

Happy 20 months to my favorite little guy. I am so proud of him and what a great big brother he has become. He loves to check on Margaret and give her kisses. What a sweet brother. It is also Margaret's happy one week. She has been doing great. Eating about every three hours and sleeping most of the day away. I can't wait for her two week appointment to see how much she has grown. 

20 months.
Can you believe I am 20 months? AH!
Big boys drink out of cups.

Life with two....

I had full intentions of writing a nice blog about life with two kids, but I am too tired. Life around here is going well. Just a non-stop toddler and a sleepy newborn running the house.Thankfully, Mark has the next week of work off and will be around to help me. I don't know how I am going to do this on my own, but I don't have to quite yet. I'll try and update more tomorrow. 

Someone is pretending to be a baby....
Sibling love!?

Fun with the camera.

Grammy and Pops were nice enough to take Evan to the aquarium today, so I took the time to relax and take a few pictures of a 3 day old Margaret. Enjoy!!!

Happy Birthday Margaret!!

Monday was an interesting day. I went to the doctor at 10:15 to set up my induction and get a final check up. Everything look good. My blood pressure was under control, Margaret was looking good, and everything was set up to head to the hospital on Wednesday morning. Mark and I went out to lunch and then I came home to hang out with Evan. I had been uncomfortable since the appointment, but I figured it was just because I had been checked. Well, three o'clock rolled around and the pain was getting worse. Nothing horrible, but enough that I want to call Mark and have him head home to help me out with Evan. Mark came home about 4:30 and told me to go rest. We figured after I had some water and laid down the contractions would go away. Nope. We called Bill and Sally and they came over about 7:45pm. We put Evan to bed and then went up to Labor and Delivery. 

**warning Margaret's birth story is below**

Once we got to labor and delivery, they checked us in and everything happened pretty fast. I was 6cm and my contractions were about 3 minutes apart. They did my blood work and we had to wait about an hour for the results before I could get my epidural. Around 11pm, I finally got my epidural and life was good again :). The nurse figured once I got my epidural my labor would probably slow down and Mark and I could get some rest until the morning. She left us for about ten minutes and I was feeling uncomfortable again, so we called her back in. She checked me and I was fully dilated. They called doctor Boyd and we waited about 15 minutes for her to get to the hospital. As soon as she got there, my water burst all over her. It was very embarrassing, but hey, it happens. Dr. Boyd changed into her gown and I was ready to push. I pushed for four minutes and then Margaret was born!! A very easy labor.

Margaret Grace Hopper was born at 1:04 am! She weighed 7.7 pounds, 20 inches long, and 13 inch head circumference. Perfect in every way!

We are now home and settling in. Life with two kids is crazy! I'll try to update.
