What's Wrong With This Family Photo?

K, lets start with What's Right With this Family Photo:
  • Everyone in the photo is alive
  • No one has blood or chocolate smeared on their face
  • Everyone is clothed (though Libby screamed for half hour straight regarding the sporting of a white shirt)
What's Wrong With this Family Photo:
  • Not one person is looking at the camera
  • Libby is obviously throwing a fit
  • Eric, trying to restrain Libby, is not able to concentrate on the camera
  • Ethan, though adorable, is in la la land
  • I, having had a baby exactly one week before, am a little on the fat side
I love this group!

Oliver Stephen Pelfrey

Our little boy was born on Monday morning, August 15, at 8:44 am. He weighed 8 lbs 4 oz and was 21 inches long. We are so incredibly excited to have him!
Eric and I went in around midnight on Sunday night so they could induce me. Labor wasn't super fast, so little Oliver didn't show up till almost 9 am. The delivery went flawlessly and we had our sweet little baby to cuddle right after he was born. That evening my family came down to see him and Ethan and Libby got to meet baby brother. They were very excited (especially Ethan) and were so soft and sweet with our new little guy. I might also add that Darrell and Melodie made my night by bringing me a piece of Cheesecake Factory cheesecake to the hospital. far so good. What a blessing to have another sweet and innocent little gift from Heavenly Father.

The Trampoline

The trampoline has been a major hit since we got to Utah. The kids spend hours jumping alone, with each other or Uncle Jay and Daddy. I spend hours sitting in the shade in a camping chair watching them bouncing up and down...thinking that maybe if I got on this pregnancy would be over in a hurry. (When I told my doctor my plan to jump he told me to make sure there was someone standing by...with a videocamera!)

The Best Husband

Yesterday Eric and I celebrated our six year anniversary. The more time goes on, the more I realize I am married to the most thoughtful, kindest, most patient and charming person alive. He is easy to live with, smart, fun and a fabulous dad. I am so flattered and honored to be his little wife.
