Okay, I know it's been a while, but finally, here is our new baby boy Cash. He is seriously the rockiness baby ever. He already just fits right in with the family. I love the peace that he brings into our home.
Here he is in my favorite little jammies (because I don't have to button them, and he poops like 12 times a day).
Paul has been really busy this last week, so he gets his cuddle time at night when he is home. I love this!
Here is our new happy little family. 3 boys. Who would have thought? It is a good thing we are planning on having 12 kids. There has to be a girl in there somewhere.
I know, these right after birth pictures aren't really cute, but fun regardless. You may notice that the whole top of his head is purple. That is because he was stuck for so long in the birth canal while I was pushing. What a coincidence that my smallest baby was the hardest one to push out. I was dilated to a 10 when we got to the hospital, and the doctors and nurses all just expected him to pop right out. After pushing for 2 hours and feeling that he was not moving at all, I thought I was going to go crazy. The doctor said that his head was turned transverse, so at that point, they gave me an epideral, had me turn and lay in different positions to try to get the baby to turn. After about an hour of that, I pushed again, and Cash popped right out like nothin. That's the way it was supposed to be the first time I pushed! I sure was glad he was there, and the funny thing is, it has only been a week, and I can't even remember what it was like being pregnant or being in labor. I guess that is a gift from God! Anyway, he is healthy and happy, and my boys love their new baby. Gus was a little sad that we didn't name him Jimmy Neutron, but other than that, we are great. I was so lucky to have my mom here with me all last week. I loved it! Last time I had a baby, she was on her mission, so it was nice to have her with me to enjoy the new little life.

Hey everybody. Had a baby yesterday. Things went great. He is really small 6 lbs 10 oz. I hope I don't break him. Anyway, he's healthy. Things are great, and we are just so glad to have him home. His name is Cash Clifford Fox. I'll try to get some pics on soon.

I have been wanting to post for a while, but I am too lazy to upload the pictures from my camera. Trust me, when I do, it will be awesome. Paul and I are both suffering from that crazy time at school right before Thanksgiving when all of your big assignments are due. That would be dominating my thoughts if it weren't for the fact that I keep having killer contractions, but I am not going into labor. I am not one to usually be very anxious at the end of my pregnancy. I usually just go with the flow, but I am having a really hard time concentrating. I just want the baby out for me to love and hold, and then contractions and labor won't be the only thing I can think about anymore. It is really hard studying about the nervous system when my mind is on the baby. Also, I am excited to see if we will have a little boy or girl. Anyway, life is good. We went on a hike for veterans day, got our first snow storm, and went to boyscout night at Sizzler. What more could a girl ask for?
