Babies, Babies, Babies!! and No Surgery!! (sort of)

This last week and a half I personally know 5 people that have had babies!! And I know 2 more that are due any day now! CRAZY!! And of course everyone keeps telling me...Isn't it about time for another one for your family too?! WHAT?? I think it's just so crazy how once Ko hit the one year mark, everyone keeps on asking when we're having another one, and that it's about that time for us. WHAT?? It can't already be that time! I swear I just gave birth to Ko! And after hearing all of these crazy stories about epidurals not working, I have made a decision....I'm never having another baby again!!! You girls have all got me freaked out! Sorry Ko, I guess you are going to just have to be a spoiled only child! HA! Okay, who am I kidding? Of course I will be having more children! If any of them are like Ko, I could probably have ten more! Okay, probably not ten...I think I would have to take crazy pills for the rest of my life! So back to my purpose of this post...

I just want to congratulate everyone that is either prego, due any day, or that just had a baby, whether it is your first or fourth!! Motherhood is such an amazing experience and it will change your life forever. Also for the few of you who are still trying to get pregnant and have yet to be successfull...keep trying!! It will happen when the time is right, and when you are least expecting it!

Here are some pictures of my beautiful neice Irelynn Frame. She was born on 6-06-08 weighing in at 6 lbs. 14 oz. and 19 inches. She is such a little sweetheart and I am so grateful to our Heavenly Father for letting her be born to such wonderful parents! Aspen wasn't so sure about her little sister at first, but she is doing much better now that they are home! ( I stole some of your pics Jess...sorry!)

I also want to congratulate Adam & Angi Bradley on the birth of their baby! She was so sure it was a boy.....

Remington Cole Bradley was born on 6-08-08 weighing in at 8 lbs. 9 oz. and 21 inches. Congrats to the Bradley's! I can't wait to meet her!!


Dustin had his appointment with the orthopedist on Wednesday to find out the fate of his collar bone. The prognosis....NO SURGERY!!! We were so relieved that the doc really didn't feel that it was necessary to operate! He showed us the x-rays and said that it was a pretty nasty break, but that it should just end up healing by itself.

But wait...we're not out of the clear just yet! Dustin had a follow-up appointment with another orthopedist on Thursday for his knee that has been bothering him pretty badly for the last 6 months or so. The prognosis...SURGERY!!! Somehow the end of his femur was badly bruised and some of the bone died. Some pieces broke off the bone and are now stuck under his patella. They are going to go in and take out some of the bone fragments and do some "cleaning" of his knee. Then they are going to take a piece of bone from another part of his knee and screw it into the end of his femur where the bone is missing. AAAHHH!! The poor guy can't seem to catch a break! So since he is off work for his clavicle, we decided to have the surgery in the next few weeks. Anyone know some good ways for me to make some extra money??!!! I am a great house cleaner..... :)

Seeing all the pics of babies make me want another one. But I don't want to have to be pregnant, or get up at night, or be so exhausted I want to die. I actually just want to hold a new born........maybe I should go offer my baby holding services at a hospital!

Enjoy Ko being your only baby for now. You will never have just one baby again so take advantage of that.

Sorry Dustin has to have surgery, that sucks. At least he will be home for awhile.

Anika said...

OH NO! I feel horrible for Dustin! That is so not fair! I was hoping I'd log on to your blog to find out that no surgery was needed! I would love it if you came and cleaned my house! lol! I seem to hate cleaning lately... I'm so lazy!

Dallas' little girl is so cute! She is so pretty! I found the website to the Bumbles watches...I have been calling them bumble bee watches and I got corrected...it's bumbles! The site is bumblesdesign.com. They are cute watches that look like chunky bracelets!

Rachelle, I was waiting the whole time at the end of your post for you to tell us you were prego...bummer. But seriously, Ko needs a little buddy, get on that. Jokes. Heidi and I went running last night, we need to plan another night for you to come okay? Sure love you.

So much going on for your little family. I am sorry that Dustin has to have surgery, but probably better to get it out of the way and make sure everything is taken care. I am glad you also feel this mass amount of pressure from everyone and anyone. I get asked daily if I'm pregnant I swear. Maybe that is a sign, I don't know!
