Ladies and Gentleman, Please Welcome!...... Ryder Christopher Martin!

Today the 30th Day of July 2008 at 7:25pm we welcomed the third addition to our family. Ryder Christopher Martin was born healthy weighing in at 6lbs. 15oz. 20 inches long. He took a little bit to get breathing fully on his own. I think he was still trying to make the complete transition from his pre-existant state. He breast fed for 11 minutes at 9:20pm and His mommy just informed me that he is ready for more. For those of you that are very familiar with our other two boys, he looks exactly like they did when they were first born. ( Especially like Carter). Of course dad is very proud to have another boy. All ten fingers and toes and "the package" are there and intact. We are greatful to our Heavenly Father for sending us a Beautiful baby boy!

Big as a House!!

I have officially made it past 37 weeks and can stop taking my medication to stop my contractions. Ryder will not be considered premature if he his born now. We are grateful that I have made it this far. My Doctor said that she would be surprised if I made it another week. We had to get past this weekend because of the Osmonds show at the Conference Center. Now that the show is over and things have calmed down at work, Ryder is welcome to come at any time. I am so ready to have this baby. I am BIG and uncomfortable!

One arm wonder !

As you can tell by this picture below Carter has learned very quickly how to do this is one arm. I have kept his bad arm tucked into his shirt this week so he was not temped to use it. Golf has become his new favorite sport. He figured out how to hold the golf club with one arm and hit the ball.

This is the brace that Carter has been wearing. It pulls his shoulders back into a more comfortable position. He has been a trooper through all of this.
I can't leave out Weston. He has been a big help to me over the last few weeks. He is a wonderful little boy.

Carters First Booboo

Yesterday we where working in the yard and Carter fell into one of our window wells. We ended up taking him to the instacare to see if he was ok. He was holding his neck and crying so we though that there could be something wrong. Well after a wait and a x-ray we found out that he broke his collarbone on his left side. Needless to say the x-ray says it all. See if you can tell the difference between the left and the right side.

Carters Birthday

We celebrated Carters Birthday over the weekend. He turned 3 years old on Saturday. He has been very excited about his Birthday. He are a few pictures of the weekend.

Carter was very specific about what kind of Cake he wanted. He wanted a Sports Cake.
He just makes us laugh.
He was not sure about the fireworks so I had to give him so ear plugs. One of them fell out and so he was using the empty box of "Pop Its " as a ear plug.
This was the first 4th of July since we got married that Chris did not work. Chris was very excited to do fireworks with the boys. The boys and him had a blast. He was a very good teacher to Weston and taught him how to light the fireworks. This made me nervous. But Weston was very responsible. My camera died so I did not get any other pictures of fireworks.
