Today was brothers big day. He was so cute in his little outfit and he made sure that everyone knew he was around. He slept all through the morning until 30 seconds before it was time to bless him. Then he let out a whimper then a whine then a wail. But as soon as everyone made it to the front he was quiet. It was such a touching moment thinking that his daddy is a worthy priesthood holder and was able to have the oportunity to give him a special blessing. We had a wonderful dinner afterward and got to enjoy what family was able to come.
So I know it is a tad early to start decorating for Christmas but I wanted to be sure and have everything out by this weekend for all the family that will be coming over for Ryans baby blessing. I forgot how much stuff we had purchased after Christmas last year so it felt exciting to pull everything out. I LOVE having a big house to decorate I actually have room for all of my nativities! The one sad thing is all of our outside lights did not work this year. There must have been some sort of a short that went through the strands because we lost 4 strands of icicle lights. But my cows I bought last year to put inthe yard are sooooo cute. I will put a picture of those up soon.
Whoever told me boys were easier has been seriously wrong so far. The first diaper I ever changed I got peed on and today we had to take him in to get his "hat" removed. It was very traumatic for the both of us. The picture above is of his first "bath". we wiped him down before we went into the doctors. This a picture of him sleeping it off afterwards. He has been sleeping all day since the procedure and I thought this picture probably sums up exactly how he feels. But everything should be back to normal next week.

Well I am sure you have all heard by now the newest member of our family arrived Friday afternoon. He came into the world quietly around 3:10 PM. Well he was quiet his mommy on the other hand did enough screaming for the both of them. Ryan William Osness was the name we finally decided on. He was 7 lb 6 oz and 21 inches long. The doctor said the cord was wrapped around his face twice really tight and that they would have to cut the cord before he could come out the rest of the way. I on the other hand did not feel like waiting for them to do that, which gave me the last bit of motivation I needed to push him out the rest of the way. He had some bruising from the cord but still looked like an angel. I was in a hurry to get home to my family so we hightailed it out of there about 24 hours later. Little did I know what was waiting for me at home. I had been having suspicions about Cassie having pink eye a few days before. By the time I got back it had spread to the other eye and she had so lovingly shared with her sister as well. On top of that Cassie had a severe runny nose and Jessie was starting to go down hill as well. My mom arrived Sunday afternoon which was a lifesaver for me so she could help with the girls who were getting sicker by the minute. We finally were able to get them to a doctor Monday night where Cassie came home with a diagnosis of pink eye, and ear infection, and sinusitis which was causing a sore throat. Jessie had pink eye and a gastric intestinal virus which was causing runny pooh. Things are going much smoother today now that they have been on meds for 24 hours so we hope to get out some pictures of the baby tomorrow.
I hope everyone had a safe Halloween. The girls had so much fun. Jessie would repeat everything anybody said to her like, "Have Fun!" or "Be safe!" It was really funny. SHe also had to spend about five minutes at each house yelling at the scary decorations. There was one house where the dad had dressed up and was holding the bowl of candy in his lap. He was pretending to be asleep so I warned him that if decided to scare the girls that I would come and ring his doorbell at 3 in the morning when they were up with nightmares. Well apparently he couldnt resist and he scared the crap out of the girls. Poor Jessie shook for about five minutes afterward. On our way home we tried to get her to go back up to that house to show her it was not really scary but she only got as far as the steps. She is no dummy! Cassie got sick earlier in the day and we were really worried she was going to miss all the fun, but I gave her tylenol and had her take a nap and after a three hour nap on the couch she was raring to go. we also spent the afternoon turning my belly into a fishbowl. I figured that I needed to do something with it since there arent many times in my life I will have something that round to decorate! It turned out pretty good. At least everyone in the ward thought it was creative. So after about two and a half hours of walking still no baby. The doctor told me if he doesnt come by next week then we are gonna make him come, so I am thinking that I might just schedule to be induced on Friday afternoon so I have the weekend to recover and Jeff can be with the girls. I still havent decided because I keep hoping he will decide to make his grand entrance on his own. Oh yeah congratulations Erin on your baby bump, lets hope this one is a boy! :)
