Welcome Jace!!!

On April 26/12 we welcomed Jace Jensen Flexhaug into our family. 

 We were so excited he finally arrived healthy and happy!  He was 9 lbs 6 oz, 21 inches and was born at 2:32pm.  We went into the hospital Thursday morning expecting that would be induced (8 days overdue as per usual with the other 3) and sent home and then wait it out to see if the induction would work.  This was the process for the other 3 kids so we were thinking it would be the same.  After they placed the cervidil in, Jesse and I were planning to go to the mall, do some shopping, go out for lunch and hope that the induction would work.  About an hour after the cervidil was placed, I was hooked up to the fetal monitors and the nurses were having a hard time keeping his heart rate in the same position.  They called the obstetrician on call to come in with an ultrasound machine to see what position the baby was in so they could accurately get a consistent heart rate.  So the doctor came in and we discovered that he was in breech position.  Throughout my pregnancy, he would go from breech position to transverse to head down, but the last 2 ultrasounds confirmed he was head down so we didn't think it was an issue. 

Once they found out he was breech we had a few choices to make as to whether or not I would deliver him vaginally breech or have a c-section.  They sent me for an ultrasound and in the mean time, he had turned to transverse (sideways) and he was measuring over 5000g by ultrasound so we didn't have a choice and I had to have a c-section.  So they prepped me and 45 minuites later he was born by c-section.  Definately unexpected and not at all what we were planning, but he was healthy and I was fine.  We are so happy he is here and we all love him so much!!

 Love my little family!
Cousin Austen came for a visit.  They are exactly 5 months apart! 

 Very proud big brother taking his role very seriously!
 Jenna is in love!
 Ally kind of likes him!!
 Grandma and Great Grandma brought the kids to the hospital to meet there new brother.
Going home after 3 long days at the hospital!!

New phase of life for us!

I'm tired of opening my blog to check other people's blogs and everytime feeling guilty that my last post was 4 months ago! Not saying that i'm starting anything new, but here a few quick pics.

Cade's first day of school went fairly well. I cried, he didn't. The teacher was consoling me and I felt so dumb!! Haha. Starting the school phase has been an adjustment and I am glad we get to ease into it with only 2x a week right now. Every morning he says he doesn't want to go, but when I pick him up he has had a blast.

I was the helping mom last week one day and it was so fun. It was great to chat with his teacher and to see him interact with all the little friends he has been talking about. So glad he is a nice boy! We sure do love him and miss him when he's at school though!
Lastest family picture. Probably one of the last ones with the five of us cause in 6 months we will be adding another one to the family!! So excited and we'll see if we can help Cade out and even out the numbers with another boy :) Sure do love my family!!

Yes, I am posting!

Well it has been way too long! I can't say I'm totally commiting myself to be a better blogger, but I'd like to think I will try! Last post was Jenna's bday, so since then we have had Ally's and my birthday's and Cade's is Monday so I thought I was definately overdue!

We had a fun Easter morning with a little candy/egg hunt from the Easter bunny and some goodies at the end of the trail.

Still a little sleepy!
Crazy morning hair!!

Following the trail.

We decided to put our house up for sale about a month and half ago and it is still for sale. We have had showings and that is a good thing, but I really want to start looking for a new house! We want to upgrade and stay in Spruce cause we really do love it here. I am trying to be paitient, but it really isn't a strong point of mine. So if you know anyone looking for a great starter home send them our way!!

Ally turned one! She is such a great little girl! She really does fill our house with fun and laughter.

Here are just a few thing she is ding at one (well 14.5 months now):

-cruising/running, climbing and getting into everything of course
-she can say quite a few words now but my fav's are still momma & daddy!

-she tries to repeat everything you tell her to, some sounds come out right and others not so much!

-eats pretty much everything...lucky me!

-sleeps great...lucky all of us!

-has curly, dark fro like hair.

-gives great cuddles and kisses

-she has an awesome new laugh that I just can't get enough of!

I turned 30 in March too! Wahoo! I love it. I can't say I really notice a difference besides the fact that I feel fabulous and I'm loving life. I took Ally and Jenna in the bike trailer this morning for a 2 hour bike ride and went and visited some family and it was awesome. Great weather and great munchkins to keep me company. Life is good! (I didn't forget Cade, he was just playing at his friend's).

Cade is in baseball right now and it is hilarious to watch. I still have to bring my camera and get some pics of it. He really loves it, especially the batting!

Happy Birthday Jenna!

It has been a LONG time since I have updated this blog. It's not that we haven't been doing anything, but there really hasn't been many pictures taken in awhile. We have had a fun past month and I definately need to get back to blogging again.

We went on a little week long getaway a couple of weeks ago. We stopped in Calgary, went Magrath and surprised Jesse's grandparents and then went to the Beazer's in Raymond. We had so much fun and it was great to see family!

We went down to Calgary to meet and welcome baby Drew into the family. Cody and Carley had their 2nd boy. He is a little sweatheart and seems like such a good baby!
Geting a half decent picture of the 5 Flexhaug grandchildren.

Ally at 11 months. She will be one soon and I can hardly believe it! She is such a little ball of energy and keeps us on our toes. She is so close to walking, but seems to think crawling is still faster. She has a few words which is so fun!

Cade loves to pose for the camera! He had about 10 of these kind of pictures on the camera. What a kid!

Cade and Jenna at Party #1 for Jenna. She had 3 different birthday partries....lucky girl!

Party at Grandma and Grandpa F's.

Party #2 with my family at Grandma R's house.

Yummy cake pops my mom made!

Party #3 on her actual birthday. The super creepy Cinderella cake I made her. She loved it and that's all that matters :)

My crazy 3 year old! She is a lot of work and a lot of fun! She definately adds a special spirit to our home. We love you Jenna!
