Creed is 3!

We celebrated Creeds third birthday on July 7th. It was a great day. In Creeds' mind being three equals being a "big boy." I'm not sure where that rule is written but he swears by it. I attempted a Mike Wosouskii (from Monsters Inc.) birthday cake for him. It didn't turn out like I had wanted but thank goodness that that never matters to kids!

Beckham Hastings

Please welcome Beckham Hastings Button to the world. He was 9 pounds 7 ounces and 22 inches long. He was easily the biggest baby in the NICU by a couple of pounds. He was in the NICU because he was born so fast that when he came out he popped his lungs. They put him on antibiotics and watched him for a couple days to make sure it healed up okay before he could come home. The bandage on his arm is for his IV, thank goodness I wasn't there when they put it in.

His birth was by far the craziest. We were lucky that we made it to the hospital. I only had contractions for about two hours but they never got regular. They hurt so bad that I wanted to go to the hospital just so I could get an epidural even though they were still about 7 minutes apart. While Ryan was trying to get hold of a Dr. I started involuntarily pushing. YIKES! He hung up the phone and we sped to the hospital. He was born about 12 minutes after we got there. The Doctor said that my water (which hadn't broken) was the only thing keeping him in there.

My mom was here, what a life saver. The kids loved having her full attention for two weeks. She and Ryan took the kids swimming while Beckham and I were recovering.
