Princess Peach

Brian had to go to New York last minute for work so Eddie and I headed to California. The timing couldn't have been more perfect. Emily went into labor at 2am the night we arrived! Georgia arrived March 15th at 8:01am weighing 8lbs 1oz. Emily didn't find out what she was having so a little girl was such a fun surprise! Jared on the other hand knew the entire pregnancy and kept it a secret!! I was shocked and very impressed that he was able to not give it away. It was so fun being pregnant with Em, but I can't even explain how fun it is having kids 4wks apart.
Its hilarious and so fun being around the Spears family. Georgia is never seen without a bow in her hair, and if it falls out you hear emily say, "oh no!! she's naked! " Then you have the big brothers and sister singing "George, George, Georgia of the Jungle" or arguing about who's turn it is to hold Georgia Peach. We wish so much we could live close to them and go jogging with jogging strollers everyday :), but cell phones and pictures messages will have to do for now.

Family Pictures

We decided to have family/baby announcement pictures taken when Eddie was 2weeks old. Holly Aprecio in Lake Stevens took them for us. She did such a great job and was so patient with a new born. It was so fun to take so many pictures of "Baby Eddie!"

Grandma and Papa Come to Town...

My mom came into town the day after Eddie was born. She was here for 2 1/2 weeks and we loved every minute of it! She helped us come home from the hospital, cooked, cleaned, did laundry, helped give Eddie his first bath, stayed up with me at all hours of the night to feed Eddie, answered all of my "is this normal?!" questions, and the list goes on. Papa came in for the weekend and was glued to Eddie! We were so sad to have them go home but we are so so grateful for everything Grandma and Papa do for us!

He is finally here! We are so excited about the newest addition to our family! Brian and I headed to the hospital Sunday January 17th at 12am just after my water broke. Let me just say, I was VERY ready to get the show on the road. I had called my mom earlier that day in tears telling her, "My back is killing me and I'm swollen everywhere. This baby is never going to come! This is just a cruel cruel joke!!!" Its amazing what hormones will make you think. :)
12 hours into labor and it was finally time for me to get my epidural. What a relief! I told Brian to go home and take a shower because I knew I wouldn't be pushing until that evening. He kept his cell phone close to him and headed home. I was just happy to get a solid hour of sleep! I woke up about 1:15pm and buzzed Suzy (my nurse) because I was feeling nauseated. She checked to see how far I was dilated because I guess nausea is common in labor. With wide eyes she said, "lets call Brian, you are ready to push!" "Are you kidding me?! I just sent him home to shower!" Luckily Brian thinks he is a race car driver. He jumped in the car and made the 25min drive in about 15minutes! The best part about it is that there was a highway patrol on the freeway so Brian rolled his window down and yelled, "my wife's in labor!!" the cop just laughed and waved him ahead!
By 3:11pm our not so little Edward Andreas was born! 8lbs 3oz, 20inches long. He is healthy and doing great! We are so blessed.
I was so lucky to have a "good labor" experience. My nurses were great! Suzy was my main nurse (the one in the picture). Both her and Dr. Blackham delivered Brian 25 years ago! It was so neat to have them deliver Eddie.

Hallows Eve...

Bucky and I got to finally go to Rob and Bri's Annual Halloween Party! It was so fun to dress up and watch the kids attempt trick or treating (it was of course raining). Bucky finally got to be Luigi and I was a box of Popcorn.

I'm 29weeks now and little Edward is already giving us trouble! Scary to think what he'll be like as a teenager!! On Wednesday I walked into the doctor's EMPTY HANDED with no concerns for my normal 4 week check. That was not the case when I left. I walked out with 3 prescriptions and stressing about some aches and pains I've been having. I just figured, "I'm pregnant, my body isn't supposed to be comfortable!" Well, it was requested that I come back the next day for more test. I show up, we run the test and he tells me to go to Labor and Delivery at the hospital!! That was not the results I thought were coming! So there I was heading to the hospital at 29weeks. All I could think was, " I can't go into labor yet! My labor class isn't until December and I won't know how to do the HEE HEE WHOO breathing! (ha ha! ) and I don't have one of those baby nose sucker things (mom you know what I'm talking about:) ) I get to the hospital and they set me up on a monitor. I was there for just over 2hours with the nurse monitoring my contractions. Finally some of the test results came back and they were negative so we now know Edward isn't coming in the next 2 weeks. (Sorry Dad!) He's just letting us know he's in there ready to turn Katie and Brian Pugmire 's life upside down :)

Mom: I'm also posting the newest picture taken of me. I'm trying my best to take pictures!

Brian and I spent last Friday night over at his parents house carving our pumpkin with the kids. I was in charge of making the pumpkin seeds and he was the carver. It didn't take long for Kofi to join in on the work. He had his plastic knife and was following every move Bucky made. About 2 hours later bucky was finished! I was impressed with the final results!

A baby on the way!

Its so crazy to think that I am 7 months pregnant! Brian and I are so excited for the little guy to come. I think I may be a little more anxious though. This growing belly of mine is constantly getting in the way! Today at work this lady came in to have her teeth cleaned. She sat in the chair, I laid it back and started getting to work. Not long later she tried to adjust her head, but to her surprise she couldn't move! Instead, her hair was being pulled by this large tumor of mine in my midsection and she was locked in place! I have to admit I was embarrassed, but she was so nice about it and we just laughed. Sleeping is uncomfortable, bending down to pick anything up or tie my shoes is almost always avoided, and to top things off, I think I'm getting cankles!! Unfortunately I don't have the positive, I love being pregnant attitude my mom had. But I have to say it is all worth it when I get those little jabs in my tummy and he's letting me know he's in there. My favorite is when Brian feels him kick. The look of shock and excitement in this future daddy's face is priceless.

Here It Goes...

I've been told by so many people, "Katie you need to start a blog!" I didn't think it was really my thing but sure enough, here I am posting on my freshly made blog. I guess it was only a matter of time. I figure this is the best was to write in my "journal" and keep in touch with my family.
I have to admit, this hole set up your blog thing is a lot more difficult than I thought! Its now been a couple hours since the entire process started and I'm just now getting to posting!
