February Filled with Lovely Things

First of all....


Yes he finally came, two week late, but beautiful and wonderful. He arrived Saturday the 6th at 7:02 am. I didn't even have my first contraction until a little after 5:00. I waited about 45 minutes to call the midwife and our friend Ashley who came to stay with the boys, while mom was on here way here. We left the house at 6:00, and our midwife followed us, just in case I had the baby in the car. We arrived at the birthing center only 22 minutes before he was born. It was the best birth that I have had and I am never having another baby out of that water again. (Oh, by the way he was 9lb 4oz and had a 14.5 inch head!! He was our biggest baby by far!) Andaluz Water Birthing Center, where we had had him, was amazing. Logan calls it the "Baby Spa", probably because he wasn't doing the birthing :-) But, they really do pamper you! We were so blessed.

Logan's mom was here from the 30 -12 and it was so perfect to have her her to share this special time with us. Aaron loved spending time with grandma, and I was able to transition into having three little ones with a little help from an expert.

Because we had taken the month of January off of preschool (expecting Matthew), we started back with classes the week before he even came!! It was a lot of work, but I think that it kept us focused and organized.

We are so thankful for our growing family! We blessed Matthew on the 28th of February.

We took a great trip to the beach on the last weekend of February. It was sunny and chilly as only the Oregon Coast can be :-)
