December 3, 2010 ~ Welcome Bella Gracelyn Emily Roman

Oh! How can I begin?  The day of Bella's birth was like any ordinary day.  I took the kids to school and went to work.  I was finishing up my morning classes when I felt something wet.  I went to the bathroom and decided the baby must be on my bladder.  I proceeded to go to lunch.  Then quickly after I ate I decided that this wet feeling was becoming more.  My friend/co-worker Liz urged me to go to the hospital just to be sure.  I was reluctant thinking how embarrassing it would be to go to the Hospital and the nurses say "oh sweetie you are wetting on yourself".  That was not at all the case I soon found out.  By the time I made it to the hospital I decided my water had to of  broke.  After a few minutes the nurses confirmed it and I was admitted in the hospital.  At that time I called Paul to come since I knew today was the day we would meet out baby girl.  Not to long later I got my epidural.  (below is a picture of me after my epidural)  Only two pushes later at 4:01 Bella was here!She weighed 5 pounds, 15 ounces, and 19.25 inches long.  It seemed like a dream everything was so easy.  It helped I didn't have to labor at night and hardly had any labor at all.  For a bit after they gave me pitocin I was a little uncomfortable but never in pain.  The whole experience was great and still is with my perfect little family of five.  I am truly blessed and feel complete.  God is Good!

Proud Brother
Proud Big Sister Again!

Our family as five.

Brycen turns four!

Where in the world does time go?  My baby boy is four!  He wanted to have a party at Pump it up.  When I went to make the reservation I found out it was closed.  Luckily I found a Bounce House place in the mall.  It actually turned out better with more bounce houses and bigger.  This year since baby Bella was expected to arrive in early December.  We decided to have Brycen Birthday Party the weekend before Thanksgiving.  Then on his actual birthday on the 22nd, we went to Chuck E. Cheese in Abilene and had a family party then.  He had a great time playing with his friends and family.

Stephen and Jennifer's Wedding

November 13, 2010.  This was a great day!  My sister getting married! It was a very nice simple wedding at the Grace followed by a big reception at the Bee Hive.  We are so happy to have Stephen as a part of our family.  Addyson was so excited to have a dress like Ferfer.  Brycen and Addyson walked down the aisle together.  It was so cute!  There are many more great pictures but these are the ones I have on my camera.

Addyson got her ears pierced!

In the fall Addy wanted to get her ears punched (what she calls it), but was scared at the same time.  So the weekend before Jennifer's wedding she went through with it.  It was perfect timing we were done with soccer and exactly 12 weeks from Christmas when she can change them out to new ones.:)  She is such a big girl!


Brycen was a Pirate at school.  He had to dress up as a character from a book.  We chose a pirate and he was Hook from Peter Pan.

Addyson was a witch and Brycen wanted to be a Police Officer. (Caplice Officer is how he says it.:)) I have always wanted to dress up being pregnant.  The kids thought I was the coolest mom.  I was a little embarrassed and got plenty of stares but who cares.  It is all in fun right.  Ferfer was embarrassed to go treat or treating with me as well.  

We cooked out, played outside on the trampoline, carved pumpkins, and went TRICK OR TREATING!
What a wonderful Halloween!
