You may have noticed I have posted a lot of videos. There are two reasons for that. 1} Austin loves to video tape himself and watch it on TV 2} I am just getting around to playing with my Flip Camera that I got for Christmas. Its real fun!!
I did a little question and answer thing with Austin today. I thought it was pretty funny. He has great facial expressions. It is about 5 minutes long. Towards the end he tells a great story about the tornado in Caroline's backyard. I did the same questions about a hour later and he had a couple different answers but mostly the same.

Sunday night we watched fireworks with the Boards. Austin had a lot of fun! Addison slept through the fireworks but next year she will enjoy them. :)
Addison is starting baby talk and laugh. We get a lot of smiles too! She really enjoys smiling at her big brother. Austin loves to talk to her while I change her diaper.

We went in on the 27th for an induction. I was starting at a 0 so I knew it was going to be a long day. Labor wasn't to great but that is probably why they call it labor. I went longer than the last time without an epidural because I wanted to feel the contractions and because I was kinda nervous about getting the epi since the last time I had to get poked 3 times before they got it. Well, this time the lucky number of sticks was 7!!! Yes, 7 times. They had to give me some relaxation drugs and do a sonogram of my back to get it into the right spot. I call it the relaxation drug because right when that stuff got into my system I was out! I actually woke myself up from snoring!! As that drug wore off I noticed I could feel the contractions in my left side. It wasn't a pleasant feeling. The nurse checked me at 7 and I was still a 3. I was getting nervous that I was going to end up with a c-section. At around 9 I started to feel a lot a pressure and I was complete! I went from a 3 to fully dilated in about 2 1/2 hours. That didn't feel very pleasant either. :)
Big Brother Austin absolutely is in love with his baby sister! Every morning he has to give her a hug and a kiss. He loves to say, "Hello Pretty Girl". When we go out he like to point her out to people too. He is a huge help! He will bring me a diaper if I ask for it and will always look for her paci if she is crying. He holds her daily but only for a minute.
