I know like I've said many time before, I'm very bad at updating our blog. So here is a super late update! First of all we welcomed our little guy Luke James Nielsen to our family on April 29th, 2011. We sure love him to death! Everyone always asks about the birthing story and to tell you the truth mine is not anything special..except that everything went great and we have a beautiful new addition! I was supposed to go in on April 27th at 8pm to be induced..but of course I got a call from the hospital about 2 hrs before and they said there was no room! Let's just say that was not a good night for me...when you're ready you're ready! So I ended up going in on the 28th around 5pm. By the time they started me on the pitocin it was about 7pm, the heaven sent anesthesiologist came around 12 am for the epidural and I was fully dialated at 4am. I was so ready to push and have him out but I had to wait for my Dr. to was pretty hard! Finally he arrived and I pushed for about 5 minutes...YES! 5 MINUTES (compared to Blake's 2hrs! )and little Luke was here at 4:22 am. He was a healthy 8.2 lbs and 21 inches long It was soooo great to have him out!

Blake is finally warming up to him and he's about 5 weeks old. The first few weeks he didn't want anything to do with him and totally left him alone, which was great! Now he only gets close enough to put in Luke's binky...:) It's super fun having 2 little cute boys we sure are loving every second! (well, maybe not when Luke is in his fussy mode, but it's sure keeps us going! )

Also, this past week Erik had a break from school so we've been playing and having fun. Yesterday we drove to Tulsa and went to the Oklahoma Aquarium. We had a great time.. a little overpriced if you ask me, but we enjoyed it!

Blake had to be in the NICU so I wasn't able to hold him right away...this was pretty special for me :)

Cute little guy...such a happy sleeper

8.2 lbs! This was a week early I might add! YIKES! We didn't want another 9 lb baby! :)

Oklahoma Aquarium..of course we don't leave home without the bus!

Lounging with the sharks while Luke was eating

The shark cage He was sure loving the "BIIIIIG FISH"!!!! (as Blake would say)

He loves his daddy!

How could we not visit Nemo and Dori?!?!
