Emme 6 months

Height: 27 1/2 inches 96%
Weight: 16lbs 5oz 57%
Emme is a lot like Reagan was, tall and chubby :) I can't believe she is 6 months already! She started rolling over at about 4 months but she is a lot better at it now and she moves in circles to get where she wants to go. She is starting to get up on her knees so I'm sure crawling is right around the corner. I noticed at the doctors office that she is cutting her first tooth which explains the fussiness she's had the past few days. Nights are still an issue. She is still getting up 2-3 times a night wanting to eat so needless to say I'm pretty tired but I do get help when Tim is home and when Matt gets home from school he always wants to hold and play with her til I make him do his homework. Matt and her seem to have a special connection which is fun to watch.
Overall Emme is a healthy happy baby growing up way too fast but I enjoy going through it all again and remember what it was like with Reagan since my memory is horrible. I really need to do better at blogging and journaling to remember all these things!
I don't have many pictures lately, just what I have taken on my phone because I lost our camera when we took the kids bowling last month. I'm still so mad about it. But we just got a new one a couple days ago so hopefully I wont lose this one!

Matt's birthday

Matt's 10th birthday! I can't beleive Matt has turned 10! It doesn't seem like he's been with us for 3 1/2 years already!
Well for his birthday Matt decided he wanted to go ice skating, something that he had never done before but we thought it would be fun for him. He invited a friend Kyle to come with us. The first few times around the rink he stayed against the wall but then he got brave and tried it on his own. He did pretty well! Reagan went as well and with the help of daddy she had a blast but Tim's poor back was pretty shot by the end.
Matt also got to pick where we went to dinner so it was Red Robin this year which is a change from the normal Red Lobster.
Matt is such a good big brother to Reagan and Emme, he has learned the art of feeding Emme her bottle which is a huge help.
He's been really busy lately with school and scouts and soccer. Soccer ended today with him scoring his record high of 5 goals! Go Matt, we are looking forward to the day he goes pro! He will start wrestling next and he's excited for that.
Happy birthday Matt, we sure love your guts!

Reagan birthday

I can't believe Reagan is 3! I have to say that besides the tantrums that 3 is such a fun age. She's such a good helper and so fun to have conversations with. She always has an answer for everything. I keep telling myself I need to write down all the funny things she says through out the day. Her new kick she's on is going to Disneyland, yesterday while in the bath she asked if we were going to Disneyland and I told her not yet and she said because we need to get dressed first and I said no and she said oh because we have to pack our bags first? How can I not take her now? Hopefully next summer we can make it.
For her birthday we took her to her favorite place....the merry go round at the mall. Whenever I have change and she finds it she tells me it's for the merry go round.
Tim also got her tickets to the live Max and Ruby show that came close to town so he took her and she had a blast, I was sad I couldn't go and see her facial expressions but he did get some good pictures.
We seriously love this little girl to pieces and I'm so glad I get to be her mom!

The arrival of Emmeline aka Emme

Emmeline Elyse Masias
Born: 8/8/11
Weight: 7lbs 6oz
Height: 19.75 inches

I went to bed on Sunday night feeling pretty good, I knew my mom was coming to town and then I would feel good going into labor anytime after that. I woke up about 4 and went to the bathroom and went back to bed but was feeling some back pain. I didn't think too much of it since I had been having back pain on and off for a couple weeks. After about a half hour it didn't go away so I decided to go out to the couch and try to relax. About 10 minutes later I noticed that the pain was getting more intense so I started to time the contractions. The first one was about 9 minutes apart then the next was 7 then 5. I thought that was weird and thought maybe I was timing wrong but the pain was getting bad so I went and woke up Tim telling him I thought it was time. Anyone that knows Tim knows that he didn't get up the first time I woke him up. I went and started getting my stuff together and went back and woke Tim up again. I knew it would take him awhile to get ready so I got Reagan up and ready to go. I had Tim get Matt up and call our friend to ask her if we could bring the kids over. After that Tim asks me if he had time to shower. I was frustrated at him for being so slow by this point and told him no he didn't have time and that we really had to get going. We left the house about 6:30am and dropped off the kids and got to the hospital about 7. We checked in and I got into the room where they determine if they will admit you or send you home. They checked me and I was at a 6 so they took me back to the labor and delivery room. The nurse I felt was taking her sweet time getting all the paperwork ready and getting my IV and all I really wanted was my epidural. My contractions were on top of each other and I couldn't deal with the pain anymore. The doctor came in and checked me and I had progressed to a 7 and she called for the epidural and then she went off duty and a new doctor was on his way in to check on me. By this point I was feeling like I was going to die from the pain. The new doctor came in a few minutes later and I told him I thought I needed to push. I think the doctor and nurse thought I was crazy and didn't believe that I was serious but he said he would check me. He then tells me he has good and bad news. Bad epidural. Good news I was at a 9 and after he broke my water I could deliver the baby. All I said was I couldn't deliver without an epidural but no one seemed to care and said I had to anyway. RUDE!! So after about 5 pushes I delivered Emme and I survived! So we got to the hospital at 7 and Emme was born at 8:25am. That's the condensed version since I don't really want to talk about what a baby I was being :) but the main point I would like to make is it's a good thing Tim didn't take that shower or I may have delivered at home or in the car! Hopefully this post makes sense because I had to redo it like 3 times due to technical difficulties!
Here are some pics of our new love...

Oh Reagan...

For those of you who don't know, Reagan is quite the character who says the most random things for example the other day I asked her to go get a diaper and she looks at me and says "Mommy, I too sick to get a diaper." Or the other day she saw her binky and said "oh binky I missed you!"
But today takes the cake. I was sitting on my bed watching TV and Reagan comes in and lays by me and says with the saddest face, "Mommy, Daddy not like me anymore." I was like what!! So I ask Tim to come into the room to ask him what happened and why she would say that but Tim was just as baffled as I was and I could tell it just broke his heart that she said that. We're still not sure why she said it or where she learned to say that but like I said she picks up the most random things. She's a little too smart for her own good but we don't know what we'd do without her!

The addition...

We are happy to announce that we are adding to the Masias clan!! I am a little over 12 weeks along and due around August 9th, although I am shooting for earlier to avoid having another 9 pounder. :)
The first 10-11 weeks were pretty rough as far as being sick but I've been feeling much better the past week. I'm pretty sad about having to go to a new doctor and delivering in a new place, we've even considered going back to Utah for the whole summer so I can deliver there but I think I'll just suck it up and deliver here.
Matt was a little shocked when we told him but he said he just hopes it's a boy so the baby wont boss him around like Reagan does. LOL!!! Reagan knows there is a baby in mommy's tummy and is learning to be a little softer and not jump on me all the time.
We'll keep you posted on the pregnancy.
