Local Friends... Take a Look

My husband finally convinced me to sell my awesome bunk-bed crib set on Craigslist. We're asking $100 for it but I wanted to offer it to any of our friends who might be interested for $50.... so I know that they are going to a good home! It's ideal for any kids smaller than Mosiah (he's almost four). When we lived in Arizona, Ezra and Liam slept in these. Ezra up top, because he was to little to climb, and Liam on the bottom so he could get in and out as he pleased. They were in these until we moved here when Liam was 3. My friend Sandy, who I got these from used them for her daycare kids.
I am also selling a bunch of ribbon for making bows with a book on how to make it look professional for $15.
We have 200 square feet of really nice tile that we are selling for $100.... it's your lucky day if you want to redo your bathroom!!!
We have a lot of other stuff that we will be getting rid of eventually, so if you're interested in something you know I have that I might be selling let me know. I'll keep you posted too!

Hyrum Madison Peavoy

Hyrum Madison Peavoy
Hyrum was born on Thursday, November 11, 2010! He was 10 lbs 4 oz and 21 1/2 inches long! We didn't have quite the gathering at this birth as we did at the last, just Bill, Cindy and my Mom. I decided enough was enough in the waiting game and sent my Mom to go and get me some Castor Oil. I decided to take it at 7:00 pm, even though everybody recomends taking it in the morning, because I like having my babies while my boys are sleeping so they don't have to go to a babysitter. I had a nice bath and even put a mud mask on my face to relax. Got out of the bath, kissed boys goodnight, watched an episode of Star Trek and then at 10:00pm I got my first contraction. The contractions were not what I would call normal. They were very short and very strong. Lasting only 30 seconds but coming 30 seconds apart. They eventually got more normal, I called my midwife, told her about my taking castor oil, got a little lecture on why mornings are better then night, and told her I'd call back in a half hour to let her know if things were progressing. Just before 11:00 pm my water broke and the contractions got stronger. I called Cindy (my midwife) and told her to come over. Cindy arrived just after 11:00 checked the baby's stats, and then checked me. She said I was 9 cm dilated and that the baby would come soon. I figured at nine cm I would have to wait a while to push, but then suddenly my body was pushing, so I went along with it. Within minutes I felt his head crown, but before I could register the burning his head was out, and his shoulders were engaged, one more push and there was this beautiful boy at 11:27 pm. I actually had to call for my Mom to run during a push so she wouldn't miss him coming out! He is perfect in every way! HUGE and lovely.

Ducks and Baby Preparations

One of our favorite buffets here just started doing their 2 for 1 buffet again on their roast beef night, so we thought we'd check it out. As always on 2 for 1 night, there was a long wait, but it didn't matter because we brought bread from home to feed the ducks!!! The boys had a blast feeding them bits of bread... except for Mo. He figured the skinny duck needed his whole piece to itself, so Mo mostly watched his brothers feed the ducks. Still fun though. Obi loves the ducks and now walks around the house pointing at all pictures of ducks, and rubber ducks and calling them quack quacks.
My Mom and I went and got our toe nails done. I usually do this right before I have my babies, so now my toes are all pretty and ready. Vanessa says I should have done blue because I'm having a boy, but I figure there's enough blue in this house already!Nana was in charge of the baby blanket this year. This is not a cheap blanket!!! It's all minky or manky or whatever that stuff is! Thanks Nana, Hyrum loves you!!!This morning we went for a long walk to see if we could bring on some contractions.... none as of yet... It was a lot of fun to explore nature with the boys and their Daddy though!

I've been having a heck of a lot of false labor so Bill decided I could have my flowers early. Often they show up magically during my labor, this time they showed up magically during my false labor. They even grew in size when the boys told Daddy that I needed flowers from the back yard too! Thanks husband, you are the best.
And lastly, the belly shots that Hyrum has been waiting for.
I decided not to edit out all of my stretch marks, so if you're disgusted... just close your eyes, it will be over shortly! ;)

You can open your eyes again!

Okay Hyrum... I got my toe nails done, Nana made your blanket, I went on a huge walk (and tried plenty of other "natural" ways to induce), I ate your favorite buffet dinner, your belly shots are huge, I made it through my girls night out, and your flowers are now hanging to dry. COME OUT!!!
