Where does the time go????

So......... i finally have a minute to update our blog on the happenings of our lives since our little boy arrived. He has been such a great joy and blessing, He is three and a half months and growing way to quickly. I love watching him learn new things every day.  So much has happened since the last time i blogged that it would be hard to type everything, so i am attempting to update with pictures.......

Jaxon was blessed on Sunday 29th of August, 2010. Taylors' Family came to celebrate this special day with us!!!!

We spend a couple of days in San Antonio with my family. Jaxon got to hangout with his cousins Addison and Tavin.

We hiked the Y with Jaxon. Our first family exercise!!!!, I made it to the 5th turn and wanted to quit, it was the first workout since Jaxon, but my amazing husband cheered me on and we made it to the top. The view is amazing!!!!
We had a girls night out at witches night out. It was my first time and it was awesome, definitely need to make this a yearly tradition.

We decided to go on a little vacation to the sunny state of California. We got to see the San Diego temple, which is definitely my favorite temple.
We spent the day in San diego Sea world with the Burnsides!!!!!

Jaxon got his first experience of the ocean at Newport beach, The water was so cold, he was not very happy with us when we put his feet in the water.

Lol, this was in front of one of the beach homes in Venice Beach, "Worlds smallest front yard" I thought it was pretty funny.

We are now in Michigan till Thanksgiving and then we will be moving to California!!!! I am a little nervous about the move, but we are gonna make the best of it, at least I get to go to the beach everyday!!!

Jaxons story and the events of our summer

                                                   Jaxon Ryder Seibold
                           Born:         28th July, 2010
                           Height:    21 inches
                           Weight:  8.06 lbs
                            Time:     4:23 pm

So i finally have a minute to update everyone on jaxons debut. He was born at 39 weeks, i chose to be induced a week early. I went into the hospital at 5;30 in the morning and they started the oxytosin, i started feeling contractions around 11 am and called the nurse for my epidural. About an hour after the epidural was given i could feel the contractions again, so they gave me another dose of the epidural. After the second dose, i went completely numb and could not feel my legs and toes or move them at all. I called the nurse at about 2 and told her that i was starting to feel alot of pressure and i felt like i needed to push. The nurse told me that she couldnt do anything because i was still numb and wouldnt be able to feel anything or push, so she turned my epidural off and 2 hours later i was ready to go. the nurse came in and i started pushing at about 4, the nurse told me that he was ready to come out, but i had to stop pushing because my doctor was not there. A few minutes later my doctor came in, and 3 pushes later my little boy was out. It was the most painful and amazing feeling in the world,My epidural had worn off and so i could feel everything, but it was amazing when they put jaxon on my chest as soon as he was born.

I was able to go home 2 days later and we are doing great. I am exhausted but he is so worth it. Taylor is such a good daddy and has been amazing at helping me out at night with the little guy. I think he still has his nights and days mixed up but we are working on his schedule. I was also fortunate enough to have my parents visit us in denver for the arrival of Jaxon and week after them Taylors mom, so i have had a ton of help.

Besides for the wonderful little person that has been added to our family, Colorado has been great. We have three weeks left of the summer and then we go to Philly or Houston????
Taylor also participated in another triathlon here in Colorado with Blake Nuttal, and they both did great. Taylor came second in his weight division and again it makes me so happy to see him so excited about something.

So i am now in my 38th week of pregnancy, and the little guy does not want to come out. Just when i feel like im having contractions they turn out to be nothing!!!! so annoying. Im uncomfortable, can't sleep and whoever said walking helps...LIED!!!!! along with all the complaining, i am happy that its getting closer, so he could come out any day and if he doesnt come this week, i'm getting induced next week, so either way it's soon. I think it is just becoming reality to Taylor and i that we are going to be parents, but we are so excited!
....Denver has been great, hanging out with the girls has been fun and Taylor is having an amazing summer and i'm so proud of him!!!!

3d Ultrsound

We are now in Denver!!!!

It is starting to warm up and Taylor is doing great in his sales and i am so proud of him. I truelly married a wonderful man!!! The most exciting part of the last couple of weeks though was the 3d ultrasound. last tuesday Jessie Reimer and Melody Beeson, the wonderful wives of the Denver sales officecame with me to see my littl boy. It was an amazing experience, it is crazy what technology can show you. We saw little Jaxon yawn and move around, although he would not move his hand away from his face. But i am proud to say that he is going to look like his mommy!!!... sorry Daddy!!!

It Looks like he is going to have alot of hair in this picture, but it is just the placenta that was always in the way!!!

His lttle foot is right by his face and he has the ambilical cord around his wrist.

Taylors Tri

I love watching Taylor get excited about things, and triathlons are one of the many. This past Saturday Taylor participated in the Orem Telos Triathlon. He did the same one last year. But we are very proud to announce that he beat his time by a minute and a few, which in a runners time is alot..... so i'm proud of him. Triathlons are not the most interesting spectator sport, but i try cheering him on when i see him run past me.....!!!!! Besides the triathlon, we have been trying to pack and organize.....I didnt realize how much stuff we had until i started packing......but i'm excited to be going to Denver in a few days and also excitd because Taylor graduates from college on Friday and officially becomes a member of the adult world of
Taylor thought he would pose for the picture while he was running!!!

Finally figured it out i finally figured out how to set up this blog, so this is my official first post. Thought i would add that I am 23 weeks pregnant and Taylor and I are so excited to be having a little boy. Half way there!!!! Yay. I am also so ready to go to Denver for the summer, this random weather is driving me crazy!!!
And we are finally getting rid of this Apartment, for the past couple of months it has had a distinctive smell, that apparently I can only smell( must be the hormones). We are going to miss the ward and all the friends we have made, but we are looking forward to lifes adventures!!!1
