Brody Christopher is Here.
This pregnancy has been anything but easy. I have said many times that I think my body is done carrying babies (but my mind and heart are not quite there yet). Don't get me wrong I have loved being pregnant, enjoy the maternity wear, and definitely take advantage of eating anything and everything. I did not enjoy the varicose veins and the awkward sleeping positions. But I do believe it is as most mothers will say, "it was all worth it".
The third baby was a breeze. I love the labor stage. I have been induced with each child. For some reason, my babies do not want to come out. From the time I started pushing it took 4 min for Brody to enter the world.
He was the smallest of the 3 @ 9lbs. 1 oz.
Recovery has always been the difficult part for me. When the nurses take me to the bathroom after the baby is born I always faint. Weird, huh.
I am amazed everytime at how amazing the Lord is and how he creates something so intricate.
Brody entered the world on Wednesday June 8th @ 12:27pm and is a wonderful and beautiful baby.

Two of our great friends tied the knot this past May. Justin Vagle and Ally Chandler.
I have known Justin since Jr. High and feel like I have known Ally for years so when asked to be a bridesmaid I was ecstatic!
I was also VERY pregnant.
|Can you find the pregnant lady?|
This was a very fun and special wedding for Chris and I and we are so excited to not only be friends but ministry partners together.

I have to confess.....
I absolutely LOVE Mother's Day!
I was blessed to have a mom who was beyond creative and never let us get 'bored'
She was the 'room mom' at school and organized our neighborhood block parties
Among the themed all-out camping birthday, princess party, and Disney lip-syncing contests
My mom had dinner on the table at 5:30
I honestly am astounded at how she accomplished all of this and still had time and energy to lay with me and 'tickle' my back without falling asleep.
Being a mother of 2 beautiful girls and a little boy on the way, I have come to appreciate and realize the sacrifice that mom's make. I am not the "feminist' mom's have it sooo hard kind of person but I do think it is a really tough job.
I have learned from a very wise woman, Vicky St. John, to pray "God make the paths that I make crooked in my parenting straight. Fill in the gaps that I know I am missing."
This has given me incredible PEACE.
I love you to bunches Mom.
