At your request

We had a bunch of requests to post some pics of Hunter that are zoomable, so here are a few. There will be plenty of pics to go around, so dont fret! Hunter had his first doctor's appointment yesterday, and the doc said he is back to his birth weight, and that he should be walking by next week. We love having him around and watching him pull his faces. He really loves the hands to the face pose right now. That must be the trend up in heaven!
Enjoy the pics!

Oh, what a life!!


Hunter's pad!

He's Here!!!

Hunter Dario Gomez was born on July 24, 2008 weighing in at 7lbs 13oz and measuring 19 1/2 inches long! Needless to say we are super excited that he finally decided to join us!
I had a doctors appointment on the morning of the 23rd and found out I was only dilated to a 1. :( By this point he was already a day late, so that was not very encouraging. However by mid afternoon that same day I started to have some pretty frequent and more intense contractions. Come 11:00 that night they were 4 minutes apart and lasting around a minute each. So we casually put ourselves together, gathered some last minute things, and headed for the hospital. When we first got there I was dilated to a 2, and after an hour of monitoring me, I had dilated to a 3! So they admitted me!
Shortly after that I got my epidural (that was probably the scariest part for me since I hate needles) and life was looking much better! After about 7 hours I had finally dilated to a 10, and we were then just waiting for Hunter to drop a little further down so I wouldn't have to push so long... It still took about an hour anyways and then some forceps, but he made it out!
So now we are at home and are probably the most camera happy we have ever been! Despite all the things that come along with having a baby, sleepless nights, aches and pains (for me), messy diapers... We love him SO much and are SO happy to have him with us!

1 More Week???

So I am now officially 39 weeks pregnant! That means that Hunter could realistically come any day now! However, I did go to the doctors today and nothing has changed... So, the little bugger just might stay inside for as long as possible. The doctor did tell me that if I haven't had him by next week, and depending on my body, we could possibly schedule a day for me to be induced. But I am going to keep my fingers crossed that we wont need to do that because he will already be here... I say that and then he wont be, but oh well. :)

So here I am at 39 weeks.

The 4th of July

So yes, once again we are a little behind on this, but here are some pictures of us in the morning at the Kiwanis breakfast and balloon launch. My Dad has been a member of the Kiwanis club for as long as I can remember. With that being said we often go and help them out on the 4th to serve breakfast. It really is a lot of fun!

Dario started out being a pancake batter boy.

The balloons are just starting to get some air...

A little more air...

At last! They can take off!

Yes, that is a flying pig!

Dario flipping pancakes. He did a great job!

The jets that fly over at the start of the parade.
A favorite part of the morning for sure!

The refueler tank that follows them.

So a few things have happened since we last posted anything. I will start with the oldest and work my way to the newest!

Dario had a Birthday!!! Lucky for him he had the day off of work, so we started the day off with a good breakfast! Then we went and picked up his present that i got him, a new BBQ! He was a bit surprised because he figured that since our club house had one, we wouldnt need to get one of our own till we move away from here. But I convinced him of otherwise and we got it! We have used it a ton so far! Then we came home and spent the afternoon at the pool, had some kabobs for dinner and then went to our prenatal class. What a day! We had a little party for him the next day with the family for some yummy cake and homemade strawberry ice-cream!

Dario and his new grill!

Yes, he blew them all out!

Next on the list of events... Our 3rd Anniversary!!! I cant believe how fast time has gone by! It has been a wonderful 3 years and we are looking forward to many more to come! :) To celebrate the day we went out to eat at Carrabbas! We asked our waiter to take a picture of us and he got a little suspicious and asked if we were celebrating something. So we told him and at the end of our dinner he brought us some sweet dessert for free! What a nice guy!

Dario surprised me with some roses! I love him!

Last but not least, I am now 37 weeks along! That means that Hunter could come any day now and he would be completely developed! I went to the doctors yesterday and I am just barely dialating, but hey, I will take barely over not at all!

Me at 37 weeks!

So I think that about wraps it up for now.
