Welcome our newest Everett member!

Samuel's birth 
6am: we get a call from the hospital saying that my induction would be scheduled that day at 10am
9am: my mucus plug comes out followed by some mild contractions. we have breakfast spend sometime with Will.
10am: Kent and I walked to the hospital. its a block away. 
11am: we are finally taken to our room. coincidentally, its the same room I gave birth to Will. 
nurse checks me and I am still at a 2 and baby's head had not dropped.
12pm:   I am given Pitossin through my I.V. My contractions start increasing but nothing that i can't handle. my water breaks. yay! 
1PM: water continues to break. i'm at a 3.
2pm: contractions are still increasing. I say to myself "Happy pains. happy pains, happy pains"
3pm: my doctor comes in to check on me. contractions are happening every 4 minutes. Kent leaves to have lunch with Will.
4pm: contractions are killing me. epidural man comes in. at that moment I wish Kent was there with me but I tough it out. I am dialed to a 6. 
5pm: Kent brings Will to the hospital. we watched Pinocchio. Mom comes in to visit too. I can't feel anything. i can't eat anything. so i take a nap.
6pm: Mom leaves with Will. Kent stays with me. I ask the nurse to check me again. I start feeling a lot of pressure on my butt. hehe.
Babies head is starting to crown. 
6:35pm my doctor comes in and I start getting ready to push.
first set of pushes, half of baby's head is out.
second set of pushes, his whole head is out. 
doctor tells me to rest for 10 secs and before I start pushing, 6:54pm Samuel wiggles his way out without any help. pure joy.

Our first week with Sam

Samuel's first week with us has has gone by extremely fast! Slow down baby!!
I cannot believe how good this baby is.
He only cries when he is hungry or wet. 
He sleeps so much. 
I forgot how much newborns sleep. 
its amazing how much we are already learning about his personality and his preference. 
He hates when we wash his hair.
He doesn't like to be swaddled. ( just like William)
He loves to sleep on his tummy. but of course we only let him when we are with him. 
When he sleeps on his back he always has his hand above his head and his legs are spred out. 
He doesn't mind the carseat....yet. or the swing.
He nurses every 2 to 3 hours during the day and 4 to 6 hours at night.  and I thought Will was an easy baby. 
He doesn't like his diaper changed which is how his big brother is.
William loves him so much. lots of big brother kisses. 
We've tried giving him a binky but he doesn't want it. but that is okay, I prefer not having to deal with it. 
Having my mom here has been a huge blessing. She does EVERYTHING! cooks amazing! Kent is going to miss that for sure. 
She even cleaned our living room carpet. there is nothing this women can't do. I am a little spoiled.
I know I just had a baby a week ago but  I feel amazing! I recovered extremely fast this time around.  We have already gone on family walks to Macey's for ice cream, walks on the Provo River trail in the evenings and well i feel great!

8lbs 7oz 20inches

  Look at all that curly hair?!

Happy 4th Anniversary to us!

So much has happened in our lives in the last four years. 
Some amazing things. 
We have learned so much from each other. 
Its true that marriage keeps getting better and better. 
Kent is my sweet heart. 
Sometimes I can't believe I married him. 
I'm not embarrassed to say that there are journal entries from High school where I would write Nassari Everett just to see how it would look. every girl does that, right? 
I am truly blessed to be married to such an amazing person. 
He is my better half.

This is my last pregnancy post. 
Being induced tomorrow morning. 
ALSO, its my 28th birthday today.  
Super excited to meet my little guy!

Last week pregnant! 
Officially being induced July 17th. 
Exactly 1 week early.
My uterus is measuring more then 40 weeks so we know Samuel has been busy getting fat in there. 
He should be a good size baby. 
Anything under 8lbs is good for me! ( fingers crossed) 
I am so excited to finally meet Samuel. 
I'm excited to meet the little boy that keeps kicking me when I eat ice and who has the hiccups constantly. 
The little boy who doesn't let me eat Mexican or Asian foods.
The little boy who has now decided to switch up his sleeping pattern and is up all night. 
The little boy who gets lots of love from his big brother.

I am so excited to meet him. 
Will he look like my side of the family? or Kent's?
 Will he look like his big brother William?
 Will he have black hair? red hair?!
Will he be a good baby just like his brother?
Whatever he looks like, he will be perfect. 

I maybe a little bias but Kent and I make darn cute babies. :-) 

I secretly wish he would come this weekend. 
I just can't wait! Here's to having a baby this Sat! 
That's a great day to have a baby, right?

the fourth

Independence day this year was a chill one over out our house. Normally we spend the evening with our best friends the Arregui's but they have moved and as happy as we are they are moving on to bigger and better things, we still miss having them close by.
Our day started out with our wards annual breakfast. after that we came home and Kent helped me clean the house. 
after nap time, we went over to Freedom Festival on Center street to walk around for a bit. My feet were ten times their original size after that walk. It was hot outside. A trip to 7/Eleven for a big gulp full of ice and slurpees for my boys helped to cool off.  We ordered Kneaders for dinner, watched Captain America that night and stayed up to catch the Fireworks. William crashed right after that. I say overall the fourth was a success. I loved spending it with my favorite 2 people. 

So grateful to be an american. I love this country. I love my freedoms.

My little shark

Last weekend we were invited to our friends twins 3rd birthday. It was a fun pool party, great company and yummy food.  Will had a blast. all he wanted to do was swim. It felt so nice to be in the pool and not feel so heavy. It was so nice to be with our friends and its crazy to think that just 5 years ago we were all single, no children and still in school. So much has changed and its great! 
Thank you Tash for inviting us! We love you guys!!

37 weeks

Its JULY!!!!
My favorite month.
I'm considered full term now! 
This week my doctor comes back from a service 
trip in the Philippines. 
He will do the Bishops score on me to get me ready for being induced a week early. 
I am feeling pretty good but tired by the end of the day.
I am swollen most of the time. 
I crave lots of ice water. 
Will and I went swimming with friends last week and it felt so good to be in the water. 
I felt like I was not pregnant. 
We've been watching lots of home videos of your big brother from when he was born till now. 
He grew up so fast!
It turns out your brother loves to swim. 
We put on his life jacket, he jumps in the pool and he swims in there all by himself. 
He had a blast at our friends twins birthday party just this last weekend. 
The AC is on most of the day because it is so hot! 
lots of celebrating to do this month! 
Its an excited time!!!

A letter to my sweet William

Dear William,
 I thought about doing this when you were born but kept forgetting to do so. I think now that you are getting ready to take on an important role in our family, I want to let you know how much you mean to me. I suppose that I could write this on paper or  a journal somewhere but this seems to be a better place seeing as it will never be lost or destroyed.

While we were visiting your Aunt Jenny recently, I couldn't help but get choked up a little seeing how sweet you were with little Evie. It was a little glimpse of how you will be with your little brother Samuel. Right there and then I became extremely excited for you.

 In a few weeks, you will be taking up an important role. From now on you will always be a big brother. There will always be some one that will look up to you. Its a special calling if you ask me and one that is not easy. I know of someone who has that similar calling but His is a unique one. He was asked to live a perfect life so that we could return to live with our Heavenly parents. If you ever need help being a big brother or a friend you can always study the life of Christ.

I say this to you so that you know that being a big brother means you will be required to be an example and a help. I believe there is no coincidence of you being the oldest.  Even at almost 3 yrs old you have already proven how much you wanted to be here on earth. At 4 days old you helped our faith in Christ be strengthen when you got sick. You have a unique personality. You are strong.  You are full of love and compassion. Constantly hugging and kissing us. Sitting at the table you already remind us to say the prayer.

These last few weeks are a little bitter sweet for me. Its kinda silly but I can't help think that this will be the last time it will just be daddy you and me. Up to this point you have never had to share our love or attention. I have only been YOUR mom and now I have to prepare to be a mom to you and Sam. That is so exciting for us! 

 I am so excited for our little family to grow and it will happen no matter what in July but from now till then I feel that we should dedicate our energy and our time solely to you in this exciting transition. We have extra cuddle times. You have been getting extra cookies during snack time. Daddy has been taking you with him on Slurpee runs and comic book shop runs and you love it. oh and sometimes we nap together on mommy and daddy's bed and you snuggle right next to me with your little warm body. 

 William, mommy doesn't know what it feels like to have siblings. I wish I knew how to relate to you in this aspect but your daddy knows and I bet he will always be able to relate to you when its not easy being a big brother.  You can always count on us to help you with anything you need. 

 In the 3 years you have been in our family, you have taught me and your dad so much.  How to be patient while you are screaming in the car because we can't reach a toy you dropped. Being patient while you scream and cry in your room because we wont let you keep getting out of your room in the middle of the night to climb into our bed. Being patient during a diaper change. I think diaper change means wrestling match in your mind or something.  You have taught me that I need to rely on the Lord to know how to meet your needs. Praying for peace while I hear you cry yourself to sleep. You have taught me sacrifice. Having the responsibility to be your parent and teacher has helped me to be more obedient to the Lords commandments. I want to be able to receive the help I need to raise you and your brother whenever I need it.  

We love you so much. We love your little high pitched voice. We love the many tunes you carry. We love your imagination. We love your OCD's. We love the way you talk. You say mimicow ( mickey mouse) rowku ( dinosaur) Ironman ( red) Hulk ( green) blah ( captain america). You are our special boy and we love you! 

Love, mommy and daddy
