It's a GIRL!!

We had our baby on Friday! We even have a name for her which I was worried about because we didn't have any names picked out when we got to the hospital. We decided on Lexie Ann Young.
She is our biggest weighing 7 lbs. 10 oz. and is 20 inches long.
I am so excited to have another little girl in the family.
I started having contractions Thursday night and got to the hospital around 10:00 PM and the little one arrived Friday morning at 2:23 AM. The delivery went well and I am so glad Micah is such a great support. I wanted to cave a few times and get an epidural, but he kept on telling me I could do it so I went all natural and I am glad I did now that it is all said and done.
She has had a little problem breathing but other than that she is doing well.
I will post pictures in a few days when I feel up to taking and uploading them!

Dear Baby,

I am writing you this letter to let you know It really is okay for you to come out now I promise. I just mopped, did laundry and have a stocked fridge but you should know it doesn't last forever, a couple days tops so if you want to come home to a clean house you better come soon.

If you are worried to come out because we don't have a name picked out for you there is no need to worry, you will have a name before we leave the hospital, I promise.

I don't know if you know this, but you are growing everyday and every ounce you grow adds soo much more uncomfortableness when you move or kick me in the ribs. Don't get me wrong, I have loved being your oven, but I would also love to be able to put on my shoes again without breaking into a sweat because I can't reach my toes and be able to last more than an hour before feeling like my bladder is going to burst, and not to mention I just don't want to be huge anymore.

If you are afraid to come out because of all of the noise, crying and yelling you hear from your brother and sister everyday, don't worry, you will learn to block it out, I have. Oh and I apologize too now for what they just might do to you, like if Mya accidentally drops you or Tay smacks you on the head with a toy truck, or feeds you something you really shouldn't be eating I am so sorry. I will protect you as best as I can.

I promise I will try not to let you cry but you should know now that there may be times when I won't be able to give you my full attention. Like if Mya gets into the fingernail polish or Tay climbs up on the counter, or I really need to take two seconds to use the bathroom you'll just have to learn to be patient.

We are really excited to have you be a part of our family so I hope you decide you are ready to join us. Oh and if you want to make it soon that would be very very nice, and I would prefer it to be during the day because it is not fun to go into labor at midnight and have to be awake all night then the next day, It makes one really, really, really tired. If you do decide to come at night that is fine too I guess. Just make it quick because we all can't wait to meet you.

Love, Mom

P.S. If you are hanging out in there just to try and teach me a lesson in patience there's no need. Something you will learn is that your older sister is THE ultimate patience tester so there is no need for you to try and compare. You can just be a sweetheart okay!

A little trickster

This baby is driving me crazy! It has been getting my hopes up every day this week only to crush them. Today was especially annoying. For the past couple nights I have been having contractions and they are pretty good ones too. They woke me up at four this morning and I was thinking it would be the big day but of course they stopped. Then in church today I had strong contractions every five to seven minutes all through Sunday school and Young Womens. I really thought I was going into labor until I got home and now they have stopped :( It must have been sitting on a hard chair for three hours and now that I am home on the soft couch the baby seems to think it no longer wants to come out.
I am not due until Wednesday so I shouldn't get my hopes up, but it would be a lot easier to be patient if I would stop having hard steady contractions every five minutes for two hours straight only for them to stop. Little stinker!

Picture tag

1. Go to my documents/pictures.

2. Go to my 6th file folder.

3. Go to my 6th picture.

4. Blog about it.

5. Tag 6 people to do the same.

I finished Angels and Demons (which was really good by the way) and was bored so after seeing Tina's picture post it made me curious to see what picture would come up. I have two though. I wanted to see both mine and Micah's computer so I took the picture from each computer.
This picture is of our little fam and Micah's parents the day we got home from picking up Micah in Salt Lake from Iraq. That was the best day ever!

This picture is of Me, my brother Shaun and his wife Len on Halloween two years ago. I was in Wanye County visiting and we all decided to dress up at the last minute for the halloween party that was going on.
I tag Suzanne, Megan, Kari, Hilary, Rachel, and Beth

No time for blogging

SO I know all of you are just dying to know why I have not been posting lately.....just kidding. Anyway, I have been getting into this book Micah told me I had to read called Angels and Demons, it's by Dan Brown who also wrote DaVinci Code. It is really good and whenever I have free time, I sit down and read.
I don't consider myself much of a reader but lately after the whole Twilight series, I have gotten into reading again. I don't like to just find a book and start reading though, I like to read something someone has recommended. So, If any of you have any good books you are into or have read that you would suggest, let me know because I am looking for my next book.

Do I have too??

I have been dreading this day for a long time. Today is the day that I have to go through all of my kids clothes that are in storage in order to get them ready for the baby. It would be a lot easier if I knew the gender, but oh well.
Anyone who knows me knows I am not the most organized person ever, and when it comes time to clean out drawers because the kids have outgrown all of their clothes, I have to admit I just shove them in big garbage bags without any rhyme or reason. Well, that has come back to bite me now. I have about 15 full sacks to go through and wash, and I am not looking forward to it. I did have Micah buy bins so that now I can be a little more organized and it will be easier to grab clothes for the new little one every few months. (That is the one bad thing about babies, they grow like weeds and go through clothes sooo fast) It will be nice not to have to start out buying everything new.
I have also decided I am going to deliver two weeks early, that is why I am getting everything ready now..... HAHA yeah right, I would never get that lucky, but I am keeping a little glimmer of hope that maybe just maybe I will go even a few days early...That would be awesome. For those of you out there who are lucky enough to have your baby even a week early I am very jealous of you and don't think it's fair ;) I am to the point now where every day gets more and more uncomfortable and I still have three weeks. I hope I can make it, well actually I hope Micah can make it. I'm not the most pleasant person to be around these days. Hang in there Micah, almost done. I promise I'll be nicer in a few weeks.
