October 26th ~ Luke Matthias is here!

It was my due date the 25th of October and I began to have contractions around 9:30 am .
By mid-afternoon they were 6-7 minutes apart and by evening they were extremely painful and 4 minutes apart. We got to the hospital and I was 7 cm dilated and ready for a BIG epidural!
It was 4:08 am October 26th and out he came! What a sweet personality he has and he is just so beautiful. We feel so blessed for such a wonderful experience in our lives to be able to see what amazing things God can do in creating a child. Today he is 3 days old , sleeping, eating and doing all the normal newborn things he’s supposed to. Jacob loves him already and likes to pretend to tickle him, and I can tell he loves him already I can’t wait to share more with you as time passes.


Jacob turns 3

October 19th was Jacobs 3rd birthday. I can’t believe time flies so quickly without one even realizing it. We celebrated his birthday with a BIG party on the 15th, just in case the baby would come early. He had lots of friends and fun at his party. Including Ryan, Jake and I we had 28 people here for a big pizza bash. I thank the Lord for our new house and the space we had to celebrate with all his friends. The kids ate pizza, did coloring pages, and watched and help Jacob open his presents. I think a great time was had by all and everyone seemed ready to dive into the cake at the end. I know I’m always excited to get the piece with all the fatty icing =)
Jacob received all sorts of fun gifts that he seemed to want to play with right away, as did all the kids!
On his actual birthday Ryan and I invited one of Jake’s best friends along to go eat at his favorite place, Chick-fil-a!!!!!!!! He loves it there! He also played in the play area after we finished our yummy food. When we got home he opened his gifts from Ryan and I.
He got a Diego vest and all the trimmings to be an animal rescuer. He loves to pretend and I think we hit the jackpot this year.
All in all, his birthday was a great success. We all had a blast throughout the week as we celebrated.
Now we just await the arrival of our newest addition. I am due to have our new little boy in 2 days. We are anxious and excited to get the show on the road. We can’t wait to meet our new little boy.
