Erin had her baby on May 4th. She wasn't due until June 12. She started having contractions on the night of May 1st, and the next morning they were still going so I convinced her to go to the hospital and be checked. When we got there she was 4cm and 80%...so over the next two days she spent in the hospital trying to stop her contractions unsuccessfully, so she gave birth to Rheese Larue Whiteley (Larue after our Grandma Whiteley) on May 4th (which is also the day before her cousin Aspyn) at 3:35 pm. She was 5lbs 11oz and 18 1/2 " long. No complications at all! Which I consider to be a miracle considering she was 6 weeks early! She came home today. Which was the first time I could even see her, they wouldn't let anyone in but her and my parents in the NICU. I was going CRAZY!! But here she is...and she is SOOOOO cute!!!

I'm sooo NOT posting a belly pic this month haha. I'll just wait until I start to show ;)...But anyways our names have changed...Boy name is now Halen Van Browning (Van Halen is Justins favorite band ) and I'm not so set on Zeplyn anymore for a girl...its not completely out...but I'm thinking maybe Willow would be better? Willow kind of goes with Aspyn right? lol Next appointment they have to do another blood draw on me...the initial antibody screen they did the first appointment showed positive for some antibodies so this next appointment on May 18 they will do another to try and figure out what I'm "fighting". My Dr. has assured us though that its nothing that could possibly harm the baby. I didn't really get to many good easter pics... Justin was at work on Sunday so I hid the kids baskets in my room so they didn't eat all of it before I woke up...I know lazy mom haha...but hey I only get to play the preggo card one more time...so I"m making the most of it. :) Brayden is getting ready to graduate from kindergarten next month...and Landy from preschool. I can't believe I'll have both in school full time next year :( Aspyn is going to be TWO next thursday :( and she is quite the stinker also lately...she fights me every time I try to dress her, undress her, take her diaper off, put her diaper on, take a nap, go to bed, eat, or pretty much anything else. BUT....as soon as her daddy gets home (cue the eye rolling) she turns into this sweet little angel who does everything she is told. Thanks Aspyn. Also my lil sis is getting ready to have her baby soon...I believe today she is 34 weeks preggo...she is having a little girl and naming her Rheese Larue Whiteley...Larue is our grandma Whiteley's name. Love it. :) I am actually VERY excited for my little niece to get here. I am also excited to see how Erin will do with a new baby. For anyone who knows her knows what I mean. It's kind of surreal to see her even pregnant. But I can already tell she is both going to be a very protective mama, AND that she has NO idea what she is in for...but what new mom does right? :) And now....for some totally random pictures. :)
