ALASKA at last!

(This is going to be put into a couple different post so its not way long)

So we made it to the great state of Alaska on July 3rd and loving every bit of it. Nice weather, beautiful surroundings and a wonderful house for us to live in. Cant complain not one bit. Now once winter comes who knows if our complaining will start! LOL

Here are some pictures from our road trip. Lets just say it was long long long. Poor Sterling was about to die being in the truck that long. Good thing he wont remember it being that long! We got lots of pictures to show him tho.

On our road trip we went through St. Louis so here is the Arch. That was the first time I got to see it.
Then next stop John Wayn's birth place Winterset, Iowa

Then Mount Rushmore. So awesome!!!

Then Cherrie pickn' in Kenniwick, WA with my cousins.
Then Spokane, WA with some friends that are practically family....

Then Canada! This was the first glacier we saw. So we had to put Sterling in the pic! ( Look at his face priceless)

Baby Blessing

In our church we bless a child when they are first born. We bless them with a name and give them a blessing of a happy life and things that they need to do in life. This past sunday we blessed Sterling and lets just say it was so good. Sterling and Bryce looked so handsome in their matching ties, pants, shirts, and boots! Well here are the pics.......

I couldnt ask for no other 2 men in my life, cause these 2 are perfect to me!

Wonder which one did the trick?

So on May 5th little Sterling Bryce River was born at 2:06pm. 5 pounds 10 ounces and 19.5 inches long. He is the most precious little boy I have ever seen (but then again Im his momma so of course Im going to think that) He came 2 1/2 weeks early and man was I glad. I was getting so misareble I was trying to put myself into labor as soon as I hit 37 weeks.

So here are a few of the things I was trying.

5 days before I had him Bryce and I went and shot around cause it was a beautiful day. I was up and around all day and lets just say I was so tired when we got home.

Was it the shooting that put me into labor?

Walking, walking and some more walking. My hips were hurting, he was so low that it felt like someone sucker punched me in my tail bone, and I felt so tired no matter what I did.

Was it the walking that put me into labor?

Then we went to a nautral vitamin store 3 days before he came and asked what would put me into labor. They gave me Black Cohosh. Lets just say it made my braxton hicks come alot stronger and then on the third day it turned into contractions.

So was it the Black Cohosh? I dont think no one will know.

I woke up at 2am with the contrations 4 minutes apart and I just knew we needed to go to the hospital. We got there and I was almost 2cm and they wanted to keep me til 7am to see if I was progressing any. When they checked at 7am I progressed a little and the doctor decided to admit me and we were going to have a baby! At 10am they broke my water and put me on pitocin. Then at 11am I got my epidural which was a saving grace. Then at 12pm I was a 3cm and 100% efaced.We asked the doc when we should be expecting the baby and he said "Since your a first time mom it wont be til later on tonight, hopefully before the hockey game at 7pm" So I fell asleep and then at 1:30pm I kept feeling like I had to push. Told the nurse and she said that she was going to check me. I was 9 1/2cm! She said we are going to have a baby within 30 min. I was so nervous cause I didnt know if I would push good enough and I did not want to be pushing for hours at a time. Lets just say I pushed for no more then 6 minutes and Baby Sterling made his famous debut to the world.The doc almost missed it cause he was trying to put his gloves on. It was the best feeling in the whole world to have such a beautiful little man to love on.


Im just so grateful that he came safe and sound and with no problems. He is a healthy bugger.
