Found out yesterday that I have yet another ear infection...the second of this summer. It really stinks and it pretty darn painful. Luckily, this one is the least painful of all the ones I've had over the last 3 years (only 4, but they seem to hurt so much, they count double or triple). And Cole has a bit of a cold. I think this if the first time he's had a cold in well over a year. I don't remember the last time he had a sniffly nose. But he's still his amazing self. I swear, I'm the luckiest mama in the whole wide world with getting to be a steward over Cole. Pretty awesome.
Also wanted to wish Mike's mom, Michelle, a very happy birthday. She turned "29" yesterday and Cole was so excited to sing his Grammy the Happy Birthday song. It was also Cole's BFF Jeremy's birthday as well and Cole got to do double the singing! :) Happy Birthday to YOU!!!
On Saturday, our niece, Addison, is turning 2 and is having a big ol' pool party bash to celebrate. At least they have a pool to help cool us all down. However, I'm not supposed to submerge my ears, so I might be out of luck. I'll still have fun holding the new little Amelia. :)
That's all I have to report. Mike has back-to-school-night tonight and I need to arrange all the goodies we are bringing for the families. Brownies (my fav), oatmeal raisin cookies, and peanut butter cookies. TASTY! (That's for your Kristal) Hope you have a great weekend, and you don't melt away like I have been doing. Here's to living in SoCal, right?! :)

A cute look between the two of us...and me giving my testimony
Thanks to Todd for baptizing Mike and I...it was a honor, dude! And a HUGE thank you to all of our friends and family for coming out to support us in our Christian walks. And last, but CERTAINLY not least, thank you to our Lord, for choosing us for His kingdom and for the blessings He bestows on us daily. We both hope You were pleased by or professions that night.

Lindsay did so well with the labor and delivery. She was admitted to the hospital at about 3:15 p.m. and they started her i.v.'s with the saline solution and pitossin drips soon after. She started having some mild contractions for about an hour. The doctor, Dr. Tuso, came in to the room at about 4:30 and broke her water. Her contractions came on much stronger after that, so after about 45 minutes of some tough contractions, she asked for an epidural. She dilated quickly after that...from 6-7 cm at about 5:45 p.m. to 10 cm at about 7:30 p.m. She started pushing around 8:00 or 8:15 p.m. Beverly (Lindsay's mom), Brian (the daddy), myself, and Katy (Mike & Brian's sister) were able to stay for the delivery which was so exciting and amazing to watch! Lindsay said her epidural started wearing off right before she started pushing, so she basically felt everything once she started actually delivering the baby. YIKES! But, Lindsay (and Brian) were amazing and she did so well!!!!
Here are a few pics of the "hard" labor... :)
Here are a couple pictures of the little one right after entering this big world of ours...
