The Biggest Loser

Since July I have really been trying to lose weight and get back to what Jord calls fightin' weight, which would be my prepregnancy weight. Well, since I didn't lose all the weight after Jace, I really have a ways to go since I gained about 25 pds with Seanmon. So, I am currently at 165, on my gyms scale, whew what a fatty I am right now and my goal weight is 140 or 145, I'd like to get down to 125, but I don't think I was totally healthy at that weight before I had Jace, so I'll be happy with 140. So, my friend Nicole who is also a trainer at the gym ran into me a couple of weeks ago and said you should sign up for the biggest loser competition we are having at the gym. I went home and talked to Jord about it and decided it would be the push I need to get the weight off. So since I started watching what I was eating and working out I've lost 18 pounds since July 1. Which I am super happy about and since I've signed up for the biggest loser I've lost 3 pounds in 2 weeks, so I am happy about that. I will post a before pic that looks bad and one of what I want to look like- so one of my preprego pics. Man, pregnancys aren't nice to my body-bummer cause I love being prego and having kids!!! :)
Wow, I don't think my hips, tummy and butt could be any bigger in this photo! This was Sean two weeks old at his baby blessing. The other pic is Jords birthday pre Jace, so May 2006! I was probably between 125 and 130, wow I think I looked great in this photo, I want that body and those perky boobs too-unfortunately only a boob job will make those puppys return, bummer!

Our Anniversary

6 Wonderful Years of Wedded bliss-2 beautiful and wonderful boys-A Forever Family...PRICELESS!!!

For our 6 yr anniversary Jordan decided to surprise me with new plates and silverware! So we went to Macys and I've wanted white plates for a long time and finally got 12 settings of nice new plates, plus silverware! Thanks Jordie, I love you and am so grateful for the daddy and husband you are!

Plus, we are going to one of our fav restaurants-Wolf Lodge for some of the best steaks around!

Little baby Sean boy!

Jace really thinks that Sean's name is Seanboy. Yep that's right no space, just Seanboy. It's pretty cute. So I'm just posting some cute pics of the kid since I just realized there really aren't any of him posted. Love ya Sean you're a great baby and so cute!

Odds and ends

So these are photos that need to be posted and ones that people probably are going to ask questions about. Jace is so goofy with his brother but he sure loves him. The hurt eye one is my 2 and 1/2 year old was riding a scooter meant for 5 yr olds, doing tricks, I might add, and somehow fell off and the metal handle bar went into his eye. I was so afraid his eye was going to be cut through and flapping. It looked terrible but the next day was worse. He love to fish and has had so much fun going and doing it with daddy. And lastly he loves to wear Sean's beanie. He freakin' looks like he's wearing a yamaka? and it makes us laugh so hard when he does.

Our New Home!

So, we sold our first home back in August. We listed it and 6 days later it was sold! Way faster than we thought it was going to sell. I was happy but wasn't planning on being out of that house so soon. It was bittersweet. We have so many great memories from that house and we loved our neighbors and friends we had made on the street. So, we ended up renting, after looking at a million houses it seemed, a house around the corner that was bigger and better suited our needs. So we are contemplating whether we should pick up a short sale or build. If we build, this is the house we like the best with the best floor plan we've seen. Since we are planning on being in a position to take care of either sets of parents as they age, this house has the best living arrangements to make that possible. But above all, we are sitting and waiting to see what the economy does over the next year. If interest rates really start to climb, we will buy immediately, most likely, if not we will continue to look for the right piece of property that will be the best for the family. We want land that the boys can ride four wheelers on and have space to make forts and just be kids. And a place where we feel like we can continue to grow our family!

Sean and Jace New Pics

Here is a few more pics of the kids over the last month. I can't believe Sean is already a month old. He has been such a wonderful baby so far. Jace had the beginning stages of pneumonia when Jordan took him to the ER on the 16th of May but he is doing good now after being on Amoxicilan for 10 days. We had a rough first couple weeks of Sean's life with Jace, he did not feel well and had someone else to share his world with. Jace is doing a lot better now with Sean, I think he felt so sick that he just didn't want to share Mom. Yesterday was Jordan's B-day so I purchased a new BBQ Grill for him. We tested it out last night and it is great.
We also Blessed Sean on the 17th when Jordan's mom and dad were in town.

Sean Eldon Robison is here!!!!

Sean Eldon Robison was born this morning at 5:13am. I went into labor around 1:30am and knew that I was starting labor. I woke Jordan up at 2:00am and said I better call Mom and Julie and get them here this is getting more intense. So I called and got them on their way and then called my Doula, Becky. She answered the phone and was like I was just thinking now would be a good time for you to go into labor. We decided to meet once Julie and Mom got to our house. So we left for the midwife clinic, Julie, Jordan, and me at about 3:00am. When I got there Becky started filling the tub and I labored on the bed a little and then got into the bathtub. My contractions were getting more and more intense and I knew my labor wasn't going to last long. My contractions kept piggybacking and not really letting up like they are supposed to, so by 4:58am, when the second midwife showed up, I said I felt like I needed to push and Inga, my midwife said then start pushing. So from 4:58am to 5:13am I pushed and he was born. Inga said I had one of the fastest types of births, which I loved cause it hurt like heck!!!! I have never felt so much pain in my life, but so much joy and relief when I held that little guy. I gave birth to him on my hands and knees in the tub and they had me swing my leg around him so I could hold him. I love how I have felt and would not do a hospital birth again. Everything about this has been awesome, especially the afterbirth. We came home today at about 11:00am and have felt great. Jace was so excited to see Sean and loved on him LOTS! My mom took him to her house so Jordan, Sean and I could rest which was wonderful. So far it has been amazing and such a blessing to experience!
As you can see in some of the pics, Sean has a very red and purple face. That is because he was delivered so fast that it caused a little bit of bruising. He will have a lot different color by tomorrow. We will add more pics to show everyone.
Sean weighed 8lbs 15ounces and was 20 1/2 inches long.

Easter Time!

Easter was for Jace probably not as exciting as it was for his cousins. He didn't get an Easter basket and the Easter bunny did not visit our house, but thankfully he has family that cares. His Aunt Jeni did an Easter egg hunt for her two kids and Jace which was very nice because Jace's poor mother really has no motivation to do much except what I have to right now. He loved it and got a baggy full of candy after opening his eggs. The funniest thing was probably his cousin Lexi getting her hand stuck in the exhaust of their family car trying to retrieve an egg. Sunday was Easter dinner with my family and yummy but pretty uneventful. Jace had fun playing with his cousins Easter basket toys and eating some of their candy. Next year hopefully the Easter bunny will be a little more motivated to give a great Easter basket!!!

Sick little guy...again :(

So, Jace is sick again. Cold's seem to do more than what I remember cold's doing to me and what they seem to do to other children. Since July of last year he has had either a cold or fever in the months of July, September, October, December, I think February, and now March! Jace started out with just a runny nose and cough. Very manageable. Well, the last 72 hours his ears have decided to take part and start dripping and oozing blood, wax, and other strange liquids yet to be identified. Thankfully, we put tubes in his ears a year ago but it seems he still has problems. He's been waking up at night for like 2 hours and can't go back to bed which is annoying for a pregnant women and her now sick husband. So, thankfully we have Jace's 2 year old well check tomorrow with his Dr. so we shall see what she says. Hopefully, this all can be over soon and Jace can feel good, his mom can feel good, and his dad can feel good too! Whew, what a month! Just glad this didn't happen in April cause the baby would be on it's way!!! ( This was his new shirt and hat from Grandma and Grandpa Robison-he loves hats cause daddy wears one like everyday)

Hotsling for a hotmama?

So, I first saw these baby carriers on Nordstroms website and thought ohhh how cute and easy. These baby carriers look way cuter and more comfortable than the Moby wrap I used with Jace. So I sold my moby wrap on Craigslist and ordered my Hotsling. I hope it works better and is more comfortable. I sure hope I look hot ;) in this Hotsling! I'll need all the help I can get when this baby arrives!

It's My Birthday and I'll...

So, yesterday was my birthday and not super eventful as I'm coming to find out as I am getting "older". But it was still fun. We went to my favorite restaurant, The Max in Spokane, and had dinner. It was super yummy and the atmosphere is so cool. I love going there and the food is always so good, no matter what you order it seems! It was fun to go with Jord, and of course I forgot the camera, partly because I'm new at this blog thing and also cause I'm prego and Jordan says I'd forget my head if it wasn't attached. He gave me some spending cash for fun, so we'll see if Nordy's gets it or somewhere online :)! He takes such good care of me and makes me feel so special. I feel so grateful to have married Jord and I know that the Lord placed him in my path for a reason. Then my good friend Shawn stopped by later that night to see me. She is so awesome and I'm so grateful to have her in my life too. She gave me beautiful tulips, ice cream, and this cute DVD of Jace's birth that made me cry both times I've watched it. I'll try to post it on here so you can watch it if you want. So it wasn't super eventful but still so fun to be with my love and relax!

Happy Birthday Jace!!!!

We celebrated Jace's 2nd birthday today! We had Julie, Billy, Tyler, Nathan, Ryan, Jeni, Casey, Brantley, Lexi, Travis, and Briana. So, basically, just family. It was fun and Jace got lots of fun presents from his cousins. Jordan and I looked at each other tonight and couldn't believe we have a 2 year old. He is getting so big and getting to be so funny!

Being a mother of a boy...and one on the way!! AWWW

So, this past weekend was supposed to be calm and not eventful. Jace changed all that within minutes. Jordan was out of town and we were just making it as fun a weekend as we could the two of us. My mom took us out on Friday night for our birthdays to Red Robin, our fav place for a burger and then took me to get some casual comfy clothes to wear after the birth and some new clothes for Jace and the baby. It was super nice of her and a lot of fun to just be the three of us. The night wore me out though because I was chasing Jace around the mall and lifting him and moving him and he doesn't like sitting still in his stroller. So by the time we got home Friday night I was exhausted. Saturday morning, I had my last birth class so Jace went to his favorite babysitters house, Riley, and I went to the class and then to a baby shower. When we both were home I thought oh good, naptime for both of us as it had already been a long day. Well Jace decided a nap of 40 minutes was all he needed as a he awoke from it screaming saying he was scared. So naptime was over pretty much before it began. So we played outside, did some stuff around the house, ate dinner, and then took a bath. Well after bathtime about 6:30pm. I turned on a show for him so he could start quieting down. Well Jace decided as I turned off a few of lights he wanted them on. So he got in the back of his toy dump truck to go and turn the lights on. Well when the lights didn't turn on where he wanted them to he moved the dump truck onto our tile floor and commensed to stand in the back of it on the tile to turn the light on. As I saw him doing this I yelled out to him "Jace stop you are going to get hurt" well he did it anyway and fell to the floor head first. He started screaming and I knew it wasn't good. As I picked him up blood was filling his mouth and I was mad at him for not listening and for now being hurt. I couldn't believe how much blood just kept coming and filling his mouth as I tried to put wet washclothes on it. I started to panic because the blood wasn't stopping. So my first response was to call my neighbor who is an EMT and see if he could come over and look at his mouth. Well I called and they weren't home and he said get him to immediate care. So off we go as fast as we can to immediate care. We get there and his lip isn't bleeding as bad but still doesn't look good. So the Dr. there looks at him and says I can do it but you'll have to hold him down to do it and I think it's going to traumatize him. He suggested that we go to the ER and have them knock him out and sew up his lip. Oh, and yes he bit completely through his lip. Little stinker :). So off we go to the ER in CDA and to make a long story short, they gave him a shot of something that hypnotizes the child so they can't really see but can hear and it makes them relax and lay still. So I watched the Dr. sew up his lip and was amazed at how well he did and recovered afterward. We finally got home at about 10:30pm and I was so exhausted emotionally and physically I was crying trying to get Jace to go to bed...he didn't want to go to bed, imagine that!!!! So we went through all that to have him toss and turn all night in bed with me, to wake up in the morning and discover that the stitches on the inside of his lip were out. Yep not even 8 hours later and they were gone. Wow, can't wait to pay for those stitches. So back to the ER after we picked up Jordan from the airport. They said everything looked fine and that he should recover well. So through all of this I probably could have just had my dad, whose a Dentist, just look at him and tell me he didn't need stitches. But like they say you panic and literally can't think when these things happen. I didn't think about calling my dad until the Dr. was sewing Jace up. So I am looking forward to having Jace doing better...and having another boy, well we shall see :)

DaySpring Midwifery

So, after MANY hours of contemplation, I decided to do this second baby au naturaule! I don't know if I'm crazy or just have forgotten what contractions feel like. I am actually excited to do the water birth and see how it feels. Jace's birth was not so awesome with the recovery and I had so much pain from the epidural that I decided was short term relief worth long term pain and discomfort? I know a lot of my post pain was because I couldn't feel anything going on and was not in control of my body. So with this baby I am happy to say I will be in control of the pushing and the quickness of it :)! My sister informed me last Sunday at our family dinner that she wants to be there, which I wasn't planning on and now have to change my whole thoughts of who and what is going to be going on and happening there. But I am excited to have her at the birth. Jordan is ok with it and with the way things have been happening with our business and lives I hope he will be home to see it, but if not, I know am feeling a lot more comfortable with my sister being there. She is a massage therapist, so if all else I can ask her to help me feel better.
I've been attending birthing classes and trying to discover how I relax and calm myself down in stressful situations...mmmm....mmm...I have no idea!!!! So we will see what I end up doing to work through the contractions.
We are also having a hard time deciding on a name for this little guy. So hopefully we will get that figured out before D-day!
I am definitely starting to nest and trying to get all my ducks in a row before this little dude arrives. Everyday Jace and I talk about the baby and I think if he understands, Jace is excited about his brother. So onto a new chapter in our lives!
