Welcome Nolin Bronson

So after a very tiring morning with Ian waking up very early and me being barely able to walk, I started to feel back aches every so often. The idea popped into my head but I quickly pushed it aside as I was only 36 weeks. So I tried to do laundry and I at that point was starting to feel immense pain. I continued with laundry and thank heavens Taylor was running late for school as she fed Ian and started working on breathing with me and massaging my back so I could relax. As a double thank heavens Kira came home from school and was able to stay home so Taylor could take me to the hospital. It all happened so fast but within a few hours I was dilated to 10. As I had just barely gotten my strep-beta culture 2 days prior they did not have the results. So they were administering penicillin through my IV. They would not let me push until it was all delivered so I was fully dilated for 2 hours before I started pushing. Well when I was able to push, I pushed for 10 minutes and out comes my really long but skinny baby boy. It was an amazing experience to welcome Nolin Bronson at 19 1/2 inches and 5lbs. 15oz.

Halloween Bash

Halloween was so much fun this year. The LeSueur side of our family all gathered at Jennifer's house for a fun dinner and then the festivities of trick or treating began. I raised a few eyebrows as a nun poster child for the immaculate conception. Mike was a cowboy and Ian was of course a monkey. What else would suit him!

Because they are the treat to beat around a campfire (or fire period). We all had a fun little even that was cool enough to have a backyard fire, roast marshmallows, and have some good old smores. They are so yummy! Emily along with a few of her cousins really enjoyed it. Until I ruined it by having Emily come in and finish her reading time before bed. We all had a whole lot of fun.

Getting Closer

Yeah, I am getting so close to having another little boy. My belly is huge but in a good way. I have a healthy little tike in there. So let's see um, 2 more months!!!

Self-destruction appears to be my child's favorite thing. So after about a week and a half after getting his stitches out he decides to rock on the chair while everyone is preparing for dinner. Well he fell face forward and the top part of his teeth went through the outside of his lip and the bottom part of his teeth went through the inside. Well both teeth met together through his lower lip thus again another ER visit. Because of where it was at they advised it would be best to do glue instead of stitches so not to create a major scar on his lipline. He just never quits!

So if my child isn't destructive enough, he has to go and get stitches. I wasn't there so Daddy took him. I guess they were outside swimming and he started running across the pool decking, fell forward, and cut his chin open real good. He's a tough little sun of a gun but goodness if it's not one scrape it's another.
