I am trying really hard to get some good pictures of Easton.
I really thought that I would want to just take pictures of him all day...
But I don't...
I just want to hold him..
and love him...
and kiss him...
But here is my feeble attempt...He is such a good baby... and we love him so much...

Never in my wildest imagination did I think something was missing in our family...

I was SO wrong...

He was missing...
He completes our little family!

My sweet baby is here...

We welcomed our sweet
Easton Ryan Colby
to our family on April 18th at 10:05 am.
He weighed 7 lbs. and was 20 1/2 inches long.

He came super fast, a lot faster than we expected.
He is beautiful and perfect and
I am IN LOVE!!

I have spent the last 5 days just soaking in everything precious about him.
I will write down his birth story...
I will post better pictures...
but right now I am just loving him...

38 Weeks...

After a month of worrying about this little baby I am more than ready to meet him. On Sunday I tried to induce the "nesting" period myself. I cleaned, I painted my living room, I cooked, and I got nothing out of it except aching legs and an aching back.
I went to see the Dr. on Monday, hoping that I was dialating.
AND I got nothing!!
Well I can't say nothing. He did give me a day. Oh...a day!
It did make me VERY happy. I hate not knowing. I hate not having a plan. I have been a nervous wreck that it would happen and I would not be prepared. Every night for the past week and a half, I haven't been able to go to bed without the house cleaned, dishes done, and laundry folded and put away. I have been worried about getting Aniston to school and her homework and where they were going to be.
I have been making myself a little crazy...
(okay a lot crazy, just ask my husband)
But with a date to go on I am good!
The list of things to do just keeps getting longer.
The girls "big sister bags" are almost done.
The bags are packed.
The plans are made.
And if everything goes as planned... We will be meeting our little guy sometime on Monday!
Just typing that makes me so happy
and a little scared!!

Easter was only...

2 weeks ago. I am a little behind.

We dreamed of going somewhere warm and fun for Easter. We actually dream of going somewhere warm and fun every Easter, but Utah's spring puts a dampner on all of our dreams. This year, due to the baby, we stayed home and relaxed. Mostly because the Dr. ordered it that way. We were homebound, but we did have a good time together. The girls colored their eggs on Saturday. Which didn't result in a horrible mess. Ryan made use yummy baby back ribs, which I had been craving for weeks. We popped popcorn and snuggled on the couch to watch a movie.

Of course the Easter bunny found us. He left WAY too much candy. The girls were in heaven when they got to have jelly beans and chocolate for breakfast.

Easter isn't complete without a new coloring book and new crayons!

We got to spend Easter Sunday with family. My mom and Chad put on an Easter egg hunt for the kids. They loved it. We had yummy food and ended the days events with rolling our eggs down the hill at the springs.

I just wanna Dance...

The girls had their dance recital on the 27th of March.
I just love it!

All the trips back and forth from Salina to Aurora are totally worth it
when I see them up on the stage!

Aniston has gotten so graceful. She was beautiful and full of personallity on stage. I was so impressed with her facial expressions. She didn't look scared at all. She was smiling and hamming it up the entire time.

This was Emersons 1st year in dance. There was only one other 3 year old in her class and she was so small in compairison to the other girls. She is so shy, I was really worried that she wasn't going to go out on stage. But she did and she even knew the dances, for the most part.

By the time they were both done I had tears running down my cheeks.

(silly hormones!)

I seriously can not get enough of these two!!
