This is when Aubree and Tanner first came to the hospital after Travis was born. Tanner had a runny nose, so we kept him away. Aubree was so sweet with Travis. I apologize for my leg hanging there. I was so hot.

Sorry it has taken me a little while to get anything out and let everyone know what is going on. Today is my due date and I'm so glad I already had Travis. I plan on putting a lot of pictures up and some video up too with more information once life slows down a little bit. Eric just finished finals yesterday and I've been trying to figure out the whole breast feeding thing.
Travis Eric Nygard was born Saturday, December 8th and 10:49pm. He weighed 6lbs 14oz and was 20 inches long. He has brown wavy hair just like Aubs and Tan did :). My water broke while I was shopping at Wal-Mart, but I thought his head had dropped and made me pee my pants. I didn't go into the hospital till almost 3pm on Saturday. I really didn't think it could've been my water since my mom and sisters all had to have their water broken at the hospital. I was at a 4 when I got to the hospital. They had me walk for an hour and then they admitted me and hooked me up to an IV with Pitocin. The Dr. said I could have the epidural whenever I wanted, so I got it at 6cm. Labor wasn't too bad for me. Anyways, I progressed to a 10 in a couple hours. That part wasn't that fun and I couldn't even feel most of it. I took me a little less that 30 minutes to push. Travis kept grunting for the first few hours but he is totally healthy. Aubree and Tanner met Travis after church the next day. Aubree was so cute with him and Tanner just looked at him, said baby, and then wanted to get down and get into things. The nurse gave them apple juice and a cupcake to celebrate. We are doing good. We love and appreciate all our friends and family.

I am so excited for it to be December. I feel so ready to have a baby, but at the same time I am a little overwhelmed thinking about 3 kids under two-years-old. I will have to invest in a leash, use my Baby Bjorn, and use a stroller. It has been super cold out, so we haven't been able to get out much, which makes the days take forever. Hopefully, I will be updating soon with pics and news of a new baby. I am so close, yet so far.
We were putting up Christmas stuff in our apartment and Tanner got himself all wound up in some lights.
Eric took Aubree swimming and when they got home they ate Hot Chocolate together. Aubree sure loves her Dad.
