Pryce’s Birthday

Pryce is {1}!!

It is hard every time your oldest or youngest reach milestones.  When Pryce turned “1” I was literally sad as this was my last first birthday for one of our children. That being said, we had a happy day with lots of tickles and laughs as well as cake!!  I cannot believe how fast this last year flew by.  I am so grateful we have a healthy family and Pryce’s first year was great.  Here are some moments from his Birthday. shirt from: ICaughtTheSun (Etsy) onesie from: Blueberries For Call (Etsy) PRESENTS!!

Pryce Pryce Baby {a birth story}

This is the birth story of my 4th and last child documented perfectly by Becky Grzelak of Photography by Becky Grzelak (edited by me). I went into the hospital at about noon on Thursday Feb 5th with what I thought was a light trickle of broken water.  It turned out not to be amniotic fluid so I had a few options… 1) go home or 2) walk for an hour or so.  I decided to take a walk as I was having minor contractions, I was 39wks5days and was already 2-3 cms.  So after an hour of doing laps around the delivery wing in my stylish gown (and awesome frog slippers) I got re-checked and was given the same options with one additional choice….3) get admitted and start pitocin.  I chose the third option as we already had childcare for the 3 girls (special thanks to my awesome neighbors – The Robinsons!!)  and Dave had worked wrapped up for the day.  I was admitted at 5:00pm and luckily because contractions had become more regular.  Pitocin started at about 6:30 pm and contractions had picked up to every 2-2 1/2 mins. 6 hours and about 2-3 pushes later I felt the little armpits of my first son put into my hands as I pulled him onto my chest. That moment is purely love at first sight.  Nothing else mattered…he was here and he was healthy.  He didn’t cry at all and it actually concerned me.  Finally he got his cry out and it was short.  He was very calm the majority of the time we were in the hospital.  I...

Pryce’s Nursery

After having 3 girls and more pink items than one could imagine, I wanted to make our son’s room fit for a boy but I didn’t want the traditional blue tones.  I finally decided about a month ago I wanted to combine “woodland creatures” with “where the wild things are” and keep the colors warm and fresh. I also think foxes are really cute so it was easy to put it all together!!
