Halloween Photos

At the church

Trunk or Treat
Halloween Night

Life around here is Crazy! The older three kids have been going to bed late, sneaking and eating way too much candy, talking back to us more than usual, and the list goes on. This last week was the worst. Let me just share with you some of the details.
Wade disappeared while I was nursing the baby and I knew he was probably up to no good when 20 minutes went by and I heard not a single sound. A couple hours later I saw where he was, in my closet. My husbands dresser was emptied drawer by drawer and he used the drawers as a step stool to get on top of the dresser. He then pulled down most of our clothes by the racks. My closet is still a bit messy from that. Next, he is always eating candy and when I say put it down, throw it in the trash, is when I am stuck sitting down nursing the baby and can't get up. No matter what I tell him he looks at me and knows that he is the winner in that situation. He just goes outside with his candy. Then, he never will take a nap, I'll try to lay down with him and then the baby will cry so I have to get up and he just follows me out of the room. Who can sleep when they are on a sugar high?
Kelli, this one day was the winner. As I said when I am nursing is when most of this stuff happens. As the good mom that I am, (j/k) I bought Kelli some stamps last christmas. Well, I haven't seen those stamps until recently. I came up stairs to see what she was up to- to see that my wall going upstairs had rows and rows of a purple stamp. It kept going on my laundry door to kelli's bedroom door into the loft and onto the towel closet. I would guess about 500 plus stamp marks. The best thing about this is that the previous owners used flat paint upstairs, so it is not even Mr.Clean eraser washable. AAhh, is all I said. Knowing that we have paint to cover it up and I told her to get a wash cloth and start scrubbing each one. They are mostly faded but not quite. After lunch I noticed the wall in the kitchen had her name written in green crayon and at the bus stop she took a pen and wrote on the upholstery in my van. She is almost five and she never does stuff like this so I knew it's because she needs attention.
Luke- being in first grade comes with a lot of homework and a full day at school. As soon as he is off the bus he starts whining, he is tired and cries about little stuff. There is alot of pressure and responsibility that he has on his shoulders at school and when he is home he wants to relax and he knows that he has homework he has to do and it makes him upset.
So if you are all wondering how its going this is about it. Ohh, this week is going to be even worse, Mason is going to Chicago for work for the whole week. I love my life. If I haven't talked to you in a couple months this is the week to call. Make sure I am still alive. Make sure to read the blog next week, I'm sure it'll top this off.

Trey Mason Williams

Trey Mason Williams-- 7lbs 3oz 19 inches 10-17-07

Tuesday I went into labor at the doctors office and went straight to the hospital. Mason was in San Diego for a work conference and I had to call and tell him rush home. Masons dad took me to the hospital and waited until mason got there. It was planned for me to be induced wednesday morning but at the doctors office I told him that I may not be able to wait that long. Sure enough, I couldn't.
We thought that it would be a fast labor six hours or so but not this time. 15 hours later, no joke. I was so tired but just glad that it was over. We came home friday and he is a great baby. Jaundice a bit. He is on the lights, its called " the glow worm". Its wraps around his belly and its a light that hits the liver. Its nice to have it at home instead of being in the hospital.. He is so cute, he is very mild. A good baby..

Painting Time

I asked the kids if they wanted to paint my belly a pumpkin. They were so excited. We took them to get some Halloween paint and this is how it turned out.

Sick Kids and Still Waiting

All of our kids have been sick, cough, cold, throat infection, snotty nose, you name it. It has hit our family within the last couple weeks. Its so hard to fight off stuff when you have two kids that go to school to get it all over again. I took Kelli out of school for this week and Luke has to go to school or I will go to jail. Here in California if a student is absent more than five days the district takes over and investigates why. So I guess when the baby is here for sure, he may miss a day or two so he can stay with the grandparents.
Wade is the kid that got the curse of cold induced asthma. When ever he gets any sickness he is on his neubulizer. Flovent and Albuterol is a must in every car, every purse I own, and we have the neubulizer that plugs into the car, just in case. Mason's side of the family all have the asthma but his brother was hospitalized until he was eight with bad asthma. Our poor Wade gets sick and has to always take medicine for some problem, he is taking after me in that sense. I have been up with him all night because his tonsils are so sore- so bring on the baby because I am up all night anyways.
Okay- so you think that sense its my FOURTH baby that I would be dialated to like a three or four like I was with all the rest at this point. So I go into the doctors to hopefully get good news and what does he say? "Ohh, thats weird!", Your cervix closed up from the last two weeks. I was so mad!!! What!! I was expecting to be like a three or so but no, only me goes open to close. It seems to not make sense. The doctor was shocked because not only did I close the head is still high and not engaged. All my babies were head down and engaged so early that it put me on bedrest, but this baby is still high and not helping my cervix out at all. The worst part is that I am contracting so hard still and so that means its all for nothing. It totally sucks! So the next day, I ran to the bus stop with Luke, and he thought it was way cool that his mom is running with a big ol' belly. But this baby likes where he is and causing major rib pain, burning and aching but as long as that is it, I'm fine. SO -- Wednesday of next week, he'll induce me and it'll be all over with. So hopefully the 17th will be the lucky day. I can survive another couple days but I hope that my kids will be healing their own bodies inthe mean time..

Trey is almost here and we are so excited!!

The baby is almost here! We are getting ready. Here are some pictures of the crib start to finish.. The bedding has been through Luke and Wade so its getting old.. I am on bed rest again and its harder than ever! But we have only visited the hospital one time so far. Grandma Jones came for two weeks to help out and get the house ready and organized. We are pretty much set!
I have only gained 12 pounds so far, no hoorays! Its horrible not to gain weight in pregnancy. I am carrying him totally inside- in my back and everything hurts. My boys have been 8 pounds three weeks early. So they will take Trey early so I can at least push him out before he gets to big. I am 35 weeks and dialated, hooray! But still on the contraction medicine, maalox, antacid, and antibiotics for one more week and then they will let me have him if I go into labor on my own. But I do every three days about so no worries on that. We will keep you all posted..
