New Little Guy

Kobi Cade finally made his way into the world, the day before my due date. It was quite the long day becuase contractions kept starting and stopping. I was on potocin and having contractions every 2 minutes but Kobi was not moving down and my water wasn't breaking on it's own. Once my water was broken it was only about 1 1/2 hours and he was born. He is a big boy weighing in at 9 lbs 7 oz and 21 1/2 inches long. He doesn't look like he weights that much because he is so long. He is an absolute doll and we are all loving him very much.
Just like my other 3 Kobi has a head full of dark hair- although I think his may be the longest.
Eric is so excited to have his brother here. He tells everyone we see that he finally has a brother!
Lily is completly in love with Kobi. She would hold him all day if I let her. She has to be in the same room with him at all times.
Evie is so cute with Kobi. She puts her cheek on his and says I Love You Baby at least 5 times a day, and every time she gets to hold him she giggles. I just realized we don't have a single family picture at the hospital or a picture of Skip or I holding Kobi when he was first born- I guess that makes us kinda lame! We are so excited to have this little guy with us. Our little family now feels complete.

The Runaway

The other day Eric got really mad at me. Mad enough that he packed a suitcase and left in search for a better life. It took until lunch time before he finally did walk out the door because I kept stalling him. Lily was being a very helpful sister by asking him how much longer it was going to be till he left and bring him things to add to his suitcase. I asked him how long he was going to be gone and his reply was a week to a month. His main reason for leaving was that I was a mean Mom (I was making him clean his room) and that I didn’t give him a good life. He made me cry. (Remember I’m filled with all sorts of pregnant emotions!) He would go into his room and then come out and tell me something funny. Here are my favorites… “Mom I packed a picture of you in case I start to forget you” and “Mom I know you don’t want me to leave but I did ennie minnie minni mo and it landed on leave so I have to leave” He almost walked out the door after that one but I told him that he had to wait till uncle Taber and Aunt Kim stopped by on their way out of town. He asked them if they would give him a ride to Uncle Hyrum’s house but they said no. So then he tried to get me to drive him there. I kept bring up fun things that were going to happen that week and the next week and told him to bad he was going to miss it all. His time frame of moving out started at a month…went to a week…then 3 days…then he would be back by bed time.
He headed out the door and up the hill. I let him get to the top of the hill before I went after him. He was bright red and sweating and more than happy to get into the car and come home.
