Addilyn Kaydee Frisby

The new addition to our family came last night at 8:07pm. Addilyn was 6 pounds, 6 ounces and she is 19 inches long. We are so happy to finally have her here!
I went to the doctor yesterday morning and didn't have any labor pains, I walked out with a lot of pain but didn't think that I was going to be going to end up in the hospital later that day. Two hours later my contractions were 5 minutes apart (a totally new experience for me because with Shelby my water broke first). I called Jordan at 1:30pm and he came home to pick me up and take me to the hospital. We slowly made our way to the hospital and then walked around before deciding to check in.
We checked in at about 3pm and I got my epidural at 4pm. After that it was just a waiting game until it was time to push her out. It didn't take me long. The nurse actually had to stop me because she was almost out.
I was amazed that this birth was so much different than Shelby's. Shelby lasted 18 hours, I pushed for 3 hours, I tore, and was exhausted. Addilyn lasted 7 hours, pushed for a 1/2 hour, didn't tear, and had so much energy I probably could have pushed another one out.
Anyway, we're still in the hospital because she has had a hard time eating today but that is getting better so hopefully we will be home tomorrow morning.
Now, for what everyone has been waiting for: pictures.
Jordan, Shelby, and Addilyn just an hour or so after she was born.

Our new family of four, Shelby just loves her little sister already.

The proud daddy.

I am always amazed that dads can sleep on these "beds" but Jordan says that you are just so exhausted that you don't even care how uncomfortable you are. I had to take this of him because he never brings comfortable clothes either. This is about 6am.

I'll post again when we have better pictures of Addilyn.

It's Done!

Our house is finally finished and it's finally ours! It has been done for about a week and we signed all the papers today. They're not kidding when they say that you sign your life away. Jordan and I were both pretty nervous about the closing but it turned out great!
The most exciting news is: We are moving before the baby's born! I never thought that would happen. We were told that it would be done the last week of August or the first week in September. Well, here we are on August 19th!
Another exciting thing that is happening in our lives is our 4th anniversary is tomorrow. I can't believe that it has been that long already. It seems like just yesterday that Jordan and I got married! Anyway, it has been a very happy 4 years and I can't wait to spend the rest of Eternity with Jordan.
Here's a little recap of what happened 4 years ago tomorrow:

Huckleberry picking

This Saturday we went Huckleberry picking with Jordan's parents. It was kind of a cool day and we were a little worried about finding some but we were very fortunate and we found a ton! We were relieved because Jordan's grandma was just sure that we weren't going to find any and there would be snow on the ground! We decided that even if we had to buy some we were coming home with huckleberries!
Here's a good picture of Jordan and Shelby picking. Shelby really liked sitting on this rock and eating everything in her bucket.

This is what I saw whenever I turned to look at Shelby. I'm surprised that she wasn't sick later. She ate everything she saw.
These berries didn't stay in her bucket long. After awhile she got bored with picking and eating and she found a flower and said, "This is my microphone." She started singing and we never had to worry about where she was because you could hear her from 3 mountains away.

This is what I looked like before we left. I know I never take pictures of myself when I'm pregnant so I had Jordan take one since I only have 3 weeks left.
Here are our berries. We came home with almost a gallon and we figure Jordan's parents had about the same amount. Not too bad for a few hours of picking!
