Fun times with my boy!

So, Steven always sleeps like this, like I'm sure many babies do. It's cute, though, because every time Darrell looks at him, he goes, "Touchdown Cougars!!" So, here ya go BYU! Beat New Mexico this weekend! Steven really isn't too fond of his baths yet. Poor little guy. He always looks so concerned and isn't very happy when we do.


This week was my birthday, and I think it was the first year where it hasn't really felt like my birthday. I think by the middle the day I'd forgotten. However, my cute husband bought me flowers, and I felt like a birthday girl again!

Changing Already

Day 1 in this world: What an exciting world to see! I think I'll be alert all of the time! Day 9: Ya know, mom is fun and all, but maybe I'm tired. Day 9: Yep, I am tired, I think I'll take up a new hobby. Day 11: Yep, this new hobby suits me just fine! I think I'll keep it.

He's Here!!

Proof of my love of IV's....this picture is for those who want to know what I looked like....this was 2 a.m. mind you! After all the anticipation, our baby decided he wanted to come before we were scheduled to be induced, and he wanted things his own way!! I went into labor about 9:30 P.M. Sunday evening, with contractions starting about 4 minutes apart. We went to the hospital at 2:00 a.m., and they almost sent me home, because I was barely dilated to a 1, but by some miracle, I dilated to a 3, and they hooked me up. I actually did get an epidural, due to the fact that I was throwing up through my contractions...not enjoyable. The doctor broke my water at 8:30 a.m., and I was a seven, and they thought our baby would be here by noon. However, he still stayed in there, and they started pitocin at noon, and I started pushing at 3:00 p.m. After a few changes, and the use of a vacuum, Steven Darrell Cropper arrived to us at 6:12 P.M. on monday September 10. he weighed 7 lbs, 7 oz, and was 20 inches long. We surely love him! He's so much fun!! We're doing well, and Grandma Rowley has been helping us catch up on some missed sleep from the 21 hour labor. hooray!! Hope you enjoy the pictures!

The Due Date?

Today is Sept. 5. My due date. And so far, I sit, and watch my baby kick my stomache, and feel him play in my ribs. That's been his favorite so far. I always did think the doctor was a little early with my due date...but who knows! But yes, we know the most I will be pregnant is one more week. I have had a total of like three contractions over the past week though...maybe we're starting to make progress! I shall keep you updated as much as I can! Thanks everyone!
