The new little man in my life

I promised some of my friends from work that I would be better at updating my blog since we are almost out of here. My first attempt was a little rough because I couldn't remember my login and password........Pitiful.

We have a new addition to our little family!!! Luke Allen Jakobson came on Monday June 7th at 2:15 in the afternoon. We got to the hospital at 7:00 am, started pitocin at 8:00, had water broken at 9:00, got the epidural at 10:30, started pushing at 2:00 and had him at 2:15! I thought my labor and delivery was easy with Kole, but Luke proved me wrong. I pushed for 1 hour and 45 mins with Kole and was very exhausted after. I started my first push with Luke and my Dr told me not to push so hard. He had me only do half pushes because he didn't want the baby to come out too fast! It was amazing. I was really so shocked at how quick and easy he came to us.

He is such a sweet little baby boy and has a big brother that loves him very much. Kole has been really good at holding him and being soft. I know he will have his days, but so far it has been such a joy to watch him love on his baby brother. Luke seems to be pretty calm, but when he does need something he shows off his fully developed, strong lungs. He and his brother have the same cute little button nose which I just love!!!

We feel so blessed to have two healthy, handsome and sweet boys in our family. Life is about to get pretty hectic, but we are grateful for the opportunity Tyson has to go to school and hopefully have a good job when he is finished. We will pack up on the 26th and be out of here on the 27th. Everything is falling into place beautifully and we are excited for what the future will bring!!!

Everybody Loves Bathtime!

A Lot of Randomness!

Suprisingly, I haven't been very good at updating my blog this summer! Here is some of the fun stuff we have been up to!
Kole has become very obsessed with "chews" (shoes). He isn't picky either, he likes my heels, Tyson's big skating shoes and his tennis shoes. I just love this first pic with Tyson's huge shoes!

We went to the Idaho Stampede with my parents and had a blast! Kole had a lot of fun and loved pointing to all the riders. At his first rodeo over the 4th of July, he got really sad everytime one of the Cowboys fell off. He seemed to get over it and loved this rodeo. I think his favorite part was the muttin bustin!

Here is Kole in his cute little boots and wranglers. He LOVES his boots!

Kole is sleeping in a big boy bed! The first night we heard him playing around in his room after we put him to bed. When I went in to check on him he was sleeping in the rocker! Since then he has loved his bed! We were at my parents over the weekend and he got so mad about sleeping in a crib. He insists that he is a big boy and needs a big boy bed!
I have to go to work but have a lot more to blog about later!

I Love Date Night!

Tyson and I finally made time for a date night. It gets so busy during the summer and our date nights got put on the back burner, but we finally got one in. We ate at Iggy's and it was delicious. We were going to meet up with Hilary and Josh for a movie but had like an hour and a half to waste so we went to Kohls to look at my brother's wedding registry. It was really relaxing to be able to browse around the store without Kole getting mad and yelling! By the time we left the store we decided we were too tired to go to the movie so we rented one and headed home. We are such an old married couple! It was so fun and rejuvinating to spend time alone with my man.............. I just really love that guy! Thanks to Grandma Jane for watching Kole so we could have some alone time!

I was looking through our pics and came across these pictures of my sisters and I on a shopping trip last spring. Let me just say that I have the best sisters ever! We all have so much in common and have a blast together! We all got to hang out over the 4th and it was so great. My sister in law, Natalie, and my brother's girlfriend, Lacy, were also there and they are so great too. We pretty much all think we are hilarious. It is great that we all get along so much. I love all of you guys!

So Good to Be Home

I have been up in Crouch since Wed for our Girl's Camp and it is sooooooo good to be home! We really had a great week but I missed my boys so much. The girls really seemed to have a good time but I think us leaders had the most fun! We were all talking about how we hadn't laughed that much in a LONG time. It was great! Since Tyson and I were in Oregon over the 4th, we left Kole there with my parents on Sun because they were keeping him while I went to camp. It was the hardest thing leaving him. I cried a bunch on the way home and pretty much everytime I called my mom to see how he was doing. I am so thankful for my parents to keep him! Thanks a ton mom and dad, I know he loved it there. I picked Kole up today and we played hard until I put him to bed. Now I am counting down the minutes til Tyson comes home. Being away really makes you grateful for such a wonderful family! Here are some pics of my most favorite boys ever!
