Little gansta

Yo what up?



Little gansta break dance

And little gansta pose


And Little gansta's little sista.

I tried to take some pictures of her after church all dressed up, but they didn't come out very well, so I guess I'll just have to dress her up again, darn it!

Malia's birth and Ethan as the big brother

Well I think I finally have some time to give the details about her birth. We were scheduled to get induced at 6:30 on Wednesday the 8th. So we headed to the hospital hoping that she would be born that day and wouldn't wait until the next day like Ethan did, after all I was already past a 3. After getting everything ready they started the pictocin around 8 and broke my water (which is just about the worst part of labor). After a couple of hours I was at a 4 and just after that, the contractions were getting pretty strong but I wanted to wait to get the good drugs until I was further along, I'd always heard that it slows labor down. Anyways within a couple of hours it was hurting really bad, I think I just about squeezed Adam's arm off. She was also facing the wrong way so I was having really bad back labor, so I gave in and wanted the epidural. The anesthesiologist came in and I told him that I wanted to be able to feel my legs. So of course after he left my legs were numb but I could totally feel every contraction. I told the nurse that I wanted him to come back and fix it, but she said that she would check to see how close I was. So about 10 minutes after I had the epidural she checked me and I was already at a 10! No wonder the contractions were hurting so bad! They called the doctor and I called Adam and he came running back in. Once I started pushing it only took 10 minuets and there she was. It's so amazing that just like that there is a new baby. As soon as she was born she was so alert. She was looking all over the place, and of course she wanted to eat. She nursed for almost 30 minutes. She likes to eat, just like her dad! We are so grateful to have two healthy kids in our family.



Ethan is doing a great job as the big brother. For the most part he is really sweet to her, the only time he gets mad and jealous is when I feed her, then he tries to pull and push her off my lap.


We were watching Star Wars last night and Ethan just started waving his hand over her head. I was just waiting for him to hit her on the head but he never did.

BIG BOY!

A couple of weeks ago we got a toddler bed for Ethan. He LOVED playing in it but would go crazy if I tried to get him to sleep in it. So it's just been sitting in his room. Then today I went to put him down for his nap and he climbed right into his bed and pulled the blanket up over himself and was out within a few minutes! We'll see if this is just a fluke or if he actually starts to sleep in it!
This would be perfect timing if he does, because our little girl is coming tomorrow!
Isn't he sweet when he's all passed out?
