Birth Story #4

Dr. Kirsch holding S.Z.

So birth #4 started out like H's birth in that we went into the Dr.s office to be checked to see if just maybe it was the day and were glad to find out I was already 5cm.. Half done!!! I knew that she would be born on Monday so I wasn't all that surprised. We headed over to the hospital to register and wait for Dr. Kirsch to come and break my water. As always once my water was broken things happened fast. Labor seemed much easier this time and I was smiling between contractions all the way up until it was time to push. Once pushing began I thought maybe something wasn't right and after 30 minutes of pushing I knew something wasn't right. This had been a very stubborn baby when it came to turning into the right position and she was continuing to be stubborn it appeared. My nurse couldn't believe that she had just turned from breech position 6 days earlier. Well after an hour of very frustrating and painful pushing S was born. She had decided that she wanted to keep her hand up by her face while being born and that is why things took much longer than with the last. She still always has that hand up by her face when she sleeps. But in the end we had a healthy baby and that is all that matters.

Fall Happenings

So after we got back from Disney we got sick. Some of us were really sick. B was in bed for the first 11 days of being home. He was by far the worst. Right when we got back J finished the kids playground.
Here are the kids swinging for the first time on it. Everyone is still not feeling well but I wanted to get some of the germs out of the house so I let them play outside for about ten minutes or until someone started having an uncontrollable coughing fit. Whichever came first. I was so thankful when everyone was healthy again.

Yes I know I'm posting beach pictures in my fall post. That's how amazing our weather had been. We started beach nights in May and ended them in October. Mosheh was finally healed up from his ear surgery so he could join us.

So the kids weren't suppose to get too wet. Yeah, that didn't happen.

Mosheh found my huge belly to be a great shade from the sun.

We made a trip to the pumpkin patch. L was very proud that she had picked the biggest pumpkin.

H took a looooong time to decide this year.

I think this is the pumpkin that B picked for Mosheh who was waiting for us in the car.
The kids were all decked out in their republican garb for Election day.

We also made it back to Thistleberry Farms. We made it the whole way through the trivia corn maze this year which was a huge accomplishment for us!

I really think we need a jumping pillow in our backyard.

Even H tried it this year.

This big slide was also a hit.

So I think I'm finally caught up!!! I can now post about our most exciting 2010 news! Hmmm......what could it be............
