Well, hello spring. How you been?

Good to see you my old friend.

Thank you spring for making your debut.

Three hours of playtime outside with the kids

was much needed. Please stay!

P.S. Don't you LOVE Lady A.?

You Know You're a Parent When...

You Know You Are A Parent When

  • You can fall asleep anywhere, doing pictured
  • You find infant socks in between your sheets
  • Your Mr. says to you "I'm going to put on my jammies."
  • You forget to go to the bathroom

What are your funny moments?

1 Month

Isn't he handsome? One month old today!
I can't believe it!
And what did we do to celebrate? We dealt with colic all day long...
But, I love you!
And watch out little leadies, his rear looks pretty
dang cute in those wrangler jeans!

Bristol's 2nd Birthday

Bristol had a fantastic birthday. Granted...I got home from a church activity a little late which made for a late party, but it was a lot of fun.

She is such a girl! Her new bracelet, purse, shirt, and vaccuum. So cute!

She was absolutely spoiled rotten. New outfits, tons of new toys, and a even a new potty
that will hopefully get used soon! The automatic bubble machine was sure
a hit. She didn't want to go to bed at all with that thing around!

OK. Now you can laugh. YES, Mickey was out in the sun a little too much before the party.
But hey, give me a break. My very first attempt at a decorative cake.
Bristol loved it and it tasted really good, so I don't care...ok maybe a little.
I just don't quite have the patience or time for cake decorating. I want to
be good at it, but just don't have what it takes. I frosted Mickey in 20 minutes.
Now you're thinking I'm pretty good eh? I know...I'll take orders later.

Bristol was so funny. Before we could even start singing she had bent
over and stuck her face in the cake. Haha! And then she pulled out the
candles to lick them. Where do kids learn to do this?
It was a GREAT birthday. I love my little 2 year old to pieces.
Her world has been turned up side down, and she has been
such a trooper through it all. It was a great day of giving all of
my attention to her.

I love technology, but at the same time I hate it. As previously posted, I've decided to go private. It is so bitter sweet, and maybe this is more hormones taking in effect than my normal thoughts, but it's a tough transition! I love knowing that people out there are reading my blog and keeping up with our latest and greatest, but I hate knowing that some people might miss out because they won't/can't sign up with google to read it. SO, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE message me your e-mail and I'll make sure to invite you! I really don't want anyone to miss out!

P.S. Once it's private I'll delete all e-mails left on the blog/facebook so others can't get 'em. Or just privately message me on FB or e-mail and all is safe! Thanks!

Going Private!?

Ok, the time has come. I think I might actually do it. GO PRIVATE. Not sure, it may be a while yet, but if you would like to keep reading send me your e-mail!
P.S. Wanna know why? Have you ever checked your "stats" page on dashboard? It can tell you who reads your blog. I don't know about you, but I don't know anybody in these places that have looked at my blog.
WOW. Who are these people? And multiple page views too. Yikes!

He's a Big Boy

Tytan had his "2" week checkup today...even though he's actually 3 weeks. But here are his stats.
11 lbs 8 oz : 96th percentile
23 inches : 96th percentile
head circumference : 100th percentile
Still can't believe that this big guy fit in me. I don't know where or how. Poor thing was probably just cramped the whole time. I love him though!

March 16, 2011 Bristol is TWO!

My dear little girl is two years old! (I know, I'm a day late. But yesterday was CRAZY!) I can't believe how fast two years has gone by. I remember the day she was born like it was yesterday, and yet here we are. People have always told me that time flies by more quickly as you get older, but now is just when I would like it to slow down.

Words can't really do justice to express the love I have for my little girl. I love Love LOVE her. She makes me laugh, smile, cry (sometimes), which is just the way life should be. As she learns and grows, I learn and grow with her. My life just wouldn't be the same without her. I love you Bris!

Cutie Patootie Hats

Without permission from my good friend, lets call her Miss A,
I'm advertising her hats!
She is soooo good at making them!
(and she doesn't use patterns) WOW!

Here is Tytan in his Owl hat. SO adorable.

Remember this picture? She also made Bristol's hat!
SO, I've told Miss A before that she needs to sell them.
I think that she could make a pretty penny!
What do you think?

Here he his. My little man!
The story of his entrance into this world is quite lengthy...lucky for you I don't have time to write the whole thing here, so I'll give you the most important details in a sweet and condensed version!
*7:30 AM check in to the hospital
*8:30 ish start pictocin...low dose so as not
to cause uterin rupture
(only 1% chance)
*8:45 Dr. O. breaks water
*9:30 most wanted man on labor and
delivery floor enters...the man
with the epidural needle!
*10:00 in the most EXRUCIATING
abdominal pain EVER. Everyone
thinks epidural not working
*5:00 PM Dr. O is informed and comes
rushing upstairs. His words
"C-Section...uterin rupturing"
*5:15 enter operating room...4 of
the 5 layers of uterus had been
torn apart, last layer paper thin
with holes in it (please say ouch
out loud for my hurt BAD)
*5:48 PM Tytan Jeffrey Stevens born
9lbs 15 oz (1 oz shy of 10 lbs) 21 1/2 inches long

Minutes after Tytan was born. And while he lay there he was smacking his lips the whole time!

Dr.'s nicknamed him "Bubba" in the O.R. because he was so big.

His feet barely fit on the paper!

Still hungry a few hours after birth. (He had already eaten once!)

First time home! Bristol loved him!

I could list a lot of things that upset me about the whole situation, but I won't. It is unbelievable that I'm the 1%, and I don't think about the alternative. However, I feel extremely blessed. I am recovering well, and I have a healthy baby boy! I am so grateful that my husband was there to hold my hand during the operation, that my mom was there to help me through the long "labor," and that I still have somewhat of a uterus!!!
