Hendrix James Keller

He's finally here!! Hendrix James was born on March 30th at 3:43 p.m. Here are some pictures of our cute little guy!!

Mommy and Hendrix....we had quite a day!!! Here are the highlights:
I had my water broken at 8:30 am
I got a bunch of pitocin before deciding that i needed an epidural (it worked this time!!!)
Hendrix had his umbilical cord wrapped around his neck TWICE
After some scary minutes with a low heart rate the doc used a vacuum

A very happy mommy and daddy that their little boy made it safe and sound

Look--he's got hair...hehe :)

Even in back.

OUr cute floppy baby. 7 pounds 6 ounces--20 inches long

Meeting his big sister. She was so sweet and cute!! She even sang him 'twinkle twinkle.'

Hendrix also got to meet some of his cousins--here he is with Caleb

Our cute little guy.

Quinn's birthday party

We waited to have a party for Quinn's birthday until my mom was here to celebrate with us. Here is my cute little 2-year-old

Quinn and grandma

We made her a monkey cake this year. For no reason other than that we thought it was cute :)

She had fun picking the frosting off his face and eating it

Quinn's Grandma Keller got her this baby high chair! She loves it already and had a lot of fun feeding her baby!!

She is so sweet :)

Grandma Stevens got her some new things for her doll house. Here she is rocking one of the dolls and singing 'Twinkle, Twinkle' to it.

She got this stroller too

A random picture from the night my mom got here--we went out to eat

My mom!!!

My mom gets here today!!! Quinn and I are both VERY excited!! I mentioned a few days ago to Quinn that Grandma Marcia was coming over soon. Since then, a few times a day she will say "Grandma and Grandpa come over today." Today is FINALLY the day!! We have to wait another week or so for Grandpa to get here, but hopefully having Grandma to play with will distract her a little bit! And distract me too--since I need to keep my mind off having this baby!!! Sorry no pics--I'm sure I'll post some soon.

last hurrah...

Our friends, Clint and Emma, came to Boise for the weekend. We got a sitter and took advantage of what might have been our last date night for a while. We went to dinner and played games at an arcade.

Emma and Clint in action

At the park...again.

Quinn had so much fun playing the musical instruments they have at this park we were at yesterday.

Quinn and daddy playing a duet


We were watching our nephew, Caleb, play flag football.
It's too bad I had just given her a sippy cup of juice because she wouldn't stop drinking even though I wanted to take a picture.

Quinn's TWO years old!!

Last night I asked Quinn what she wanted to do for her birthday, and she told me that she wanted to walk around the park. Of course, we indulged her!! We even got her cousins to come with us!!
Quinn and Levi just standing around...

Aren't they cute? They are almost exactly one month apart!!

Quinn is getting a lot braver with what she'll actually do at the park. She even went down a slide today without holding mine or Dave's hand!!

Chris and Sarah and the kids got her a baby doll for her birthday. Quinn already loves her.

Reading a book with daddy. A perfect end to her birthday!!

Being cute and silly

I didn't get a full shot of her new dress--but here's another one from Grandma and Grandpa Stevens!!

Look at her pretty hair!!!

She thought it was pretty funny to wear this bowl on her head yesterday.


Sorry--you'll have to turn your head for this one.

getting spoiled

We've been anxiously waiting for this package from my parents...it came today and we had TONS of fun opening it!!! Here's the proof!!

Quinn got this sweatshirt with kitty pockets....in this picture she is saying 'MEOW!!!'

She's also really good at saying 'zip it up.'

Some super cute animals my mom painted for the baby's room!!

Quinn had tons of fun looking at the new baby boy clothes. Especially the ones with animals on them!

Isn't my mom amazing?? She made this blanket....so cute, huh? Quinn had fun asking 'What's this baby doing?' and pointing to every square.

playing outside with sidewalk chalk. She usually ends up with more chalk on her clothes than on the sidewalk.

Thoroughly enjoying getting pushed around on her bike by her daddy. She has never let me push her for more than TWO seconds.

See--she likes it!!

We had Chris and Sarah over for cake and icecream tonight for Dave's birthday!!
Quinn scraped all the frosting off her piece of cake :)

Here he is staring lovingly at his party cake



Quinn found a little seat to eat her snack--I just thought she looked cute
