Well, he finally made it! I never thought the day would come, but it came and it started out with a number of different things going on. Just to do a quick recap of last week. Saturday we moved from Grandma Nelson's Home into Seth and Colleen Keelers nice townhouse in Tempe. We plan on being here until we can find a home.... Soon after getting some things unpacked and somewhat settled, I managed to go shut the door on my toe and ended up going to Urgent care and had to have it cut down less than half way. It wasn't fun.... Sunday we finished moving out of grandmas and made it to church in our new ward. In church I started having contractions, and did all day and through the night. At 5:00 Monday morning, I decided it was time to head in. Actually, on the way there the contractions started slowing down, but we continued anyway. Luckily enough for me, they said I could stay, but may have to induce me a little. At roughly 1 pm I got the epidural, then the doc broke my water around 4:00. They checked me a little later and was at a 8 and 90% effaced. Right then, the epidural started to wear off quite a bit and I had some (not so fun) contractions for a few minutes. I told the nurse I was ready to push and she didn't think I was ready. Although she did check me and sure enough it was time! About 2 little pushes later little Heston came into the world. What a cute little boy he is. We are so excited to have him in our home and family. Carson and Amrie are slowly adjusting, but will be fine. (I hope). Here are a few pictures from the journey, and I will post more as the days go on.
P.S. My mom has been the best help since Friday with the Move, delivery, kids, cooking, etc. I don't think I could have made it with out her these past few days! Also... thanks to everyone else that helped out with last minute moving, babysitting, cookies, or anything else. It has made the last week flow a little smoother! AND... of course I can't leave out my Amazing Husband as he is the best Husband and Daddy anyone could ask for. He helps out so much, while working two jobs. I love him very much! Thanks Nels!
