I had a Baby!


My sister kiahna has been bugging me to update my blog, so here goes:

So many events have happened since I Had Diesel! But before that I figured I should share a lot of what I went thru so I can remember what that sweet little boy put me thru! In May I was about 27 weeks and went to the ER in so much pain, I thought I was going to die! Turned out I had Kidney stones, but there wasn't much they could do about them because I was pregnant. They said I should pass them in a couple of days, well that did NOT happen. I was suffering miserably off and on until the first week of July, so for about 6-8 weeks I felt awful!! It took that long for what ever was in me to get out! I had 2 ER trips and 2 false labor trips that my hubby was not happy about!

Another exciting event that took place was my brothers wedding, (I was also sick at that- I was in the hospital the night before getting a morphine shot!) It was a beautiful event and I couldn't be more happy for Branden and Marina. I take credit for that because I set them up! :)

In July my sweet sister in-laws threw me a darling baby shower, where I felt truly loved and blessed to have such an amazing family. And I was stocked with plenty of boy stuff! :)

Finally on August 5, Diesel Michael Hakes arrived, 7lbs 5 oz, 19 inches at 4:05. It was one of my longer labors, usually after the Dr breaks my water I have the child in about 15 mintues! But it took over an hour for him to come! Turns out he was posterior, so he wasnt dropping. But he came safe and sound. I fell in love instantly and he has had my heart ever since.

I would post pictures but they are on my other computer and I am too lazy to go in the basement and get the cd. IF you are friends with me on facebook, then you have seen lots of pictures of the little guy. (also i left my camera in cali :(

We were able to go on an adult only trip (with the exception of baby D) to Lake Powell! We had a blast!! I am so grateful to Marina for watching my girls that weekend, She was so sweet to take them for me because I had baby sitters bail on me last minute, for good reasons though :)

On October 7, we blessed the little guy and had lots of family come for that as well and I am so grateful for everyone in my family and for the love and support they show Reggie and me. After the weekend of the blessing I went to Cali for 2 weeks to spend time with my mom, sisters and grandma. I left my camera in my moms truck when she brought me back, so I cant post anything from the blessing or the trip.

In october another exciting thing happened, Reggie started his new Business! Its called
MVP Restoration! He specializes in Water damage, mold, fired, and starting to do carpet cleaning. He can also do more if you needed :)

We are selling our house and we have an offer, which is a great blessing in this tough time! We aren't positive where we will end up, but some where in spanish fork or mapleton.
But the what has been hard on me the most is Reggie's Brother Allen and his wife Emily and His moving to Texas and His brother Ben and Callie moved to California :(.. It is going to be a hard change for me but I know that it was for the best for their families and I just hope one day they will come back to Utah!

Here are some latest Pictures that I had on my phone of the kids. Today Diesel is 3 months old! He is so smiley and loves ME!! he gets so sad when i walk by him and dont acknowledge him! He is getting stronger with his head everyday and just brings pure joy to my life! He is my best sleeper so far and will sleep thru the night a lot of the nights! I just love him!
My two favorite guys, watching football... They could
be twins!

I'm not on Facebook, so I haven't seen many pictures of your cute little guy. He is absolutely precious! That one of him smiling reminds me of a picture I once saw of your dad when he was a baby.

Diesel is adorable, he fits right in with the rest of your adorable family! We could really use Reggie here to help with all the flood damage!!

I'm so glad you finally got Diesel! I know Reggie has had that name picked out for many years! I'm sorry about all of your complications.
