WELCOME TO THE WORLD CONNOR LEE!!

Well...my sister had her baby!!! Connor Lee Martin was born at 7lbs. 14 ozs. and 20 inches long. He was born around 7pm Sunday night!!

I went up the hospital and arrived in the town right after he was born. I went and sat with my mom and dad in the waiting room at the hospital, til Jaime's husband, Nick came and got us!

THE BABY IS GORGEOUS!!! He is sooo sweet! He did not have any blotches whatsoever! He was sooo cute! Grandma and Grandpa held him first, my parents, and then I did. Nick's parents did not come up to the hospital. Not really sure why, but that's between them I guess. We stayed for a little bit. Jaime did great! She did end up having an epideral because she could not deal with the pain anymore. Her contractions were lasting about a minute and a half. She had some back pain. But she had no swelling and she needed no stitches, which is great for her! She is so little as it is!

We took quite a few pictures, which I will try to get posted. I still don't have there wedding pictures posted on here yet...lol....I'm a little behind now! LOL

After spending a little bit with Jaime, Nick and Connor, me, my mom and dad went to eat at Applebee's and say and talked for a little bit and then headed to Wal-mart, to print some pictures off at that picture in minutes machine, but they had the thing shut off! How disappointing! It was like 10:30 or something like that, so I guess I understand why, but it just sucked. Mom wanted to get them made to take them into work and show the ladies at work.

Finally, I got home about 11pm and decided to upload the pictures and email them to mom and dad so they can have them for work and to show everyone! My parents are soo excited about the new baby. Not soo excited about being called grandpa and grandma because it makes them feel old....lol

I worked yesterday and only part of today. My cramps are extremely bad today, so I left a little bit early today. I am good if I curl up in a ball, other times I am fine. I guess it just depends on when my body feels like putting me down for a while...lol...anyways...other than that not much else going on. I have been laying around since I got home on the couch, watching TV, taking little catnaps, curling up with the heating pads and the cats, playing a few video games and doing a little reading. I am more about the nap thing and the heating pads right now though!

2peas Challenge and some rambling!

2peas Challenge: When you go on vacation and take lots of pics... Do you try to scrap them all or just some?

Yeah, when I do go on vacation, I take tons and tons of pictures! I am sooo a picture person. I take my camera almost everywhere I go now! I do try to scrap them all. But if some are the same picture, I do not scrap them. Sometimes at different angles or if there are different faces or something's going on in the picture, I try to make a page out of it and scrap what I can. I do like to try and scrap all the pictures if I can. I do have things that make me not want to scrap them, but that is defintely a rare occasion! lol

Now for some general rambling:

Well, not too much going on here. Worked six days last week, cannot say I am at all excited about that. Getting kind of sick of that ordeal!

My sister went into the hopital last night with contractions. She actually had them start Friday, but they were an hour apart, than 45 minutes, than 15 minutes, than 7 minutes and than they went back to an hour, so they did not go in Friday. She calls Connor her little monster and it sounds like he is gonna be the way he kicks her in the same spot all the time. She is defintely ready for him to come out!

Well, they went into the hospital last night and they broke her water. As of right now, 5:30pm she is still in labor and she is in and out taking naps. They gave her the good stuff because she could not deal with the pain. Her contractions were lasting over a minute and a half and she does not do well with pain!

So, mom and dad headed up there, which there is a whole story to that, but not going to start with that, because it just angers me with her husband (my brother in law now) but anyways....she has still not had the baby. The doctor is suppose to come in, in a bit and let everyone know what is going on. So mom and dad are sitting in the waiting room. I am going to be heading up here soon. I was in the middle of cleaning the bathroom and washing laundry when they called, so I am trying to get the laundry done as soon as possible and then they will call when the doctor lets them know what is going on and then I will probably head up. I should just head up now, but me in a waiting room will drive my parents nuts. I cannot sit still very well knowing that my lil' sister is in there and I cannot see her! Drives my bonkers!!!

Anyways....I just thought I would update you all. I have not done to well at keeping up with this, we have been crazy busy with work and spending time with the family and spending some time with Jaime!!
