Happy July!

WARNING: LOTS OF PICTURES. TWO of them GRAPHIC. You have been warned.
  We have had an incredible July this year (except for the weather!). While most of the country complains of record heat I have been heard on multiple occasions asking when summer will reach us! It has been crazy and Mother Nature hasn't decided if it is April or July, as she goes back and forth on what kind of weather to send our way!
   The first few days of the month found me (Lindsay) prepping for a new little baby boy (yes, another one!). We love boys around here. I got the house cleaned and ready, with the help of my amazing Mom and Grandma, and we were ready for a hospital stay! On the 4th, we had family (and we have a lot) over for a potluck BBQ and then we spent over an hour doing fireworks (which we did not finish entirely because kids just don't sit much longer). Once everyone left for the night (including Connor and Colby) David and I were off to bed with our alarm set for 4am!

 Happy Piro David and his firework collection


 Mom brought a lantern and we all wrote our wishes on it and sent it up into the sky!

 Here is Most of the gang, ready for the show.

 Connor and Andrew lovin' the fireworks.

 Colby was in heaven all night. He had the funniest facial expressions. It was AWESOME.

 Colby again (this is how he was the entire time)

 Colby and I. I love this little guy.

 I wanted to do a picture experiment and get the boys in pictures w/ the fireworks.
Here is Connor.

And Colby

   On the 5th, David and I woke up bright and early and headed to the hospital! We got there and everything ran incredibly smoothly. I got my IV, catheter (lot those!), and was wheeled into the Operating Room. I had been very nervous about being in there alone (they don't let David in until AFTER the spinal and AFTER they have cut me open) but it went great. The Anesthesiologist was awesome! He really calmed me down and with a bit of local anesthesia, I didn't even feel the Spinal this time. Yahoo! By the time David got into the room, I was smiling and ready to meet Channing Jay! Within a few minutes, they had him out and he started screaming, a very cute, quiet scream. He was perfect. He weight 7lbs and 7oz and was 19.5 inches long! We love love love him! He is such a great little baby! We had a great week after leaving the hospital because David was off ALL week. We all loved that! I had the help I needed and Connor and Colby got all the attention they wanted. They got to play with Daddy the whole time! Lucky boys!
 Getting ready for a baby

 Apparently David was excited and just couldn't wait, so here is a picture of the back of Dr. Gill!

 Happily waiting while they cut open my insides.

 See! Told you they were cutting open my insides (I WARNED YOU!) 
There is a baby in there!

 Welcome to the world Channing!

 My first peek!

 Big brother Connor loved Channing from the start.

 Colby had to sneak a kiss.

 Dr. Gill stopped in to see how everything was going.

 Foot print time.

 These big brothers had to be involved in everything. I love it!

 Everyone was tired out after a few hours!

 Channing just chilling in the backyard (this was one of the days that felt like July)

 Cute little guy
Connor wants to do it all, even burping the baby.

 Daddy rocks! Super water-slide time.

 They even started building a play structure during David's week off!

Channing's 2nd bath

   We love that our little family has grown and we are now a family of 5! We are raising some awesome future missionaries, husbands and fathers. I couldn't ask for more! We are blessed!
