Anna Grace decided to come into this world early. She was born Sunday morning, November 21st at 11:56 a.m. My labor was rough to say the least. My epidural wore off about 2 times until my neighbor came to my rescue. I was at a 9 feeling labor pains!!! He reinserted my epidural and it finally worked! My husband was so sweet. I don't think he has ever seen me in that kind of pain in my life. I was in tears, but it was all worth it in the end! Hats off to all of the women who want to have a natural birth. My family all made it in time before she was born....I woke them up at 1:30 a.m. to let them know I was in labor. Anna Grace weighed 7 lb 10 oz 20 1/4 inches long. She is just precious! She has been a really good baby so far. I am so thankful for a healthy baby girl! Reed thinks she is pretty sweet too! He gives her kisses and calls her Gracie!

Cody and I took Reed to Firehouse Subs last Sunday after church and he was on his BEST behavior! We ordered a small sandwich, chips, let him wear a cute fireman hat, and sit in a big boy chair instead of a highchair! He loved it!!! Timing is everything with him as well. It was about 11:00 when he sat down which is his usual time to eat at daycare. We were so proud of our little boy! He is growing up too fast;)

We decided to make one LAST trip home to my parents house before Anna Grace is born. I know, I know, I probably should not have been by myself driving 5 hrs in the car being 36 weeks along, but I knew Cody would be out of town- hunting so I needed the help from my parents. It was really nice to be able to relax while my parents helped.....and Lolly too! We had a fun Halloween! Reed started out crying when we would walk into the first 3 houses until he figured out I was not leaving him there. He figured out he would get candy and leave. He started saying Bye Bye by the end of the night;) We got to see all of his cousins this Halloween which was fun!
Reed and Isabella love riding with Pops to feed the fish and check out the oil wells (Reed's favorite)- He can even say oil well....it is funny to hear him say it. They love going to the park which is just a ride away from our house.....very convenient! Reed could ride all day on the golf cart if we would let him. I love riding with Pops and Reed until it started causing me to have frequent contractions so I had to get off! Bummer!
