Our internet is no longer available so my blogs are suffering, I just wanted to say that I am still loving having two kids. My sweet October is getting bigger everyday and more and more alert. The fall season is finally kicking in and I am loving it. My fear and desperation for winter clothes is squashed by my excitement for the holidays.

1:37 AM

I wonder how many middle of the night blogs I will end up doing now that my being awake in the middle of the night is a common occurance. Tober is actually a really great sleeper, but now and then I still get the opportunity of staying awake with her for an hour or two. Tommorow it will have been 2 weeks since she joined our family and it was at 2 weeks that I hit my first wall with C bug. So far I seem to be doing better this time around. I have most definately gotten more sleep. However, I am starting to get sick and it feels like my jenga tower is starting to wobble. I just don't want it to come crashing down. Yawn. I am really tired.

A day to remember, Taking a stand.

"A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of woes and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we f...ight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you *stand, Men of the West!"

Our new place

So 2 days after giving birth we moved in to our new place, and I am just loving it. It is so nice to be at your own home with a new baby. I can't help myself even in my tired state I still want to decorate and make it feel like home. It pleaseth me much.
I can't wait til pay day so that I can buy flowers and maybe a few pillows, a few little things like that make a house feel more like home.
A couple of weeks ago I painted some pictures for my sister-in-laws baby room and as a thank you she bought me this fabulous 24 x 48in canvas. It has been hanging up above our fireplace all week and I have been trying to imagine what on earth to do with it. Etsy has been a good source of inspiration but not good enough. Finally the thought occurred to me to check out Anthropolgie, and honestly I don't know why it took me so long. Instantly I found multiple things I was dying to have and a fantastic rug that will now be mimicked and painted onto our canvas. Thank you Anthropolgie.
I can't wait to get started and see how it turns out.

My October Experience

I woke up sunday morning, with contractions. (When didn't I wake up with contractions in the last 3 weeks) After some debate we decided to go into the hospital. I couldn't help but feel discouraged since this would be my 3rd time to the hospital and the thought of being sent home again made my heart sink. I was so exhausted by it all.
When my midwife told me she wanted me to stay and that she was going to break my water I was so relieved and suddenly very aware of the fact that I was about to be in hard core labor. Game on.
They broke my water at 2:30 and at 4:30 after lots of sweat and a few forced involuntary grunts of pain, October joined our world, as beautiful and wonderful as can be.

We then recieved some visitors and C got to come meet his sister. He suprised me by how calm he was and by how much he already seems to love her.

Everything was perfect. Jones started work the next day and the day after that we moved into our new place. It has now been a week and other than being a little tired :) I feel great. I love my family.

Life is good.
