holding hands

The other day I was in the kitchen washing dishes and I walked around the corner to see Jacob laying on the couch next to sleeping Joshua holding both of his hands. It was so cute. Jacob can't get enough of Joshua. When Jacob and I are playing and he hears the slightest noise come from Joshua sleeping in the other room he says "Bebe vamos!" (baby let's go!) he loves to help Joshua, and hold him. When we are riding in the car if Joshua starts crying Jacob will say "it's okay bebe, it's okay"

Joshua Marcelo Antezano

This labor was quicker than the first. I was induced with this labor, mainly because of the problem of the enlarged kidneys. I expected with labor to be longer since I was induced, but that wasn't the case. We got to the hospital at about 8am. They started the pitocin at 9am. A doctor came to break my water at 10:30 and I had contractions every 3-5 minutes from 10:30 to 11:30. At 11:30 they told me I was at a 7+, almost 8. I thought it would be a few more hours and didn't think I could handle the contractions that long. They gave me the epidural and 10 minues later I felt like I needed to push. They told me I needed to wait for my Dr to arrive. He got there about a half hour later, and Joshua was born within 10 minutes of him arriving. Joshua looks almost identical to Jacob when he was a newborn. He was born March 17th (St. Patrick's Day) and weighed 7 lbs 4 oz and was 20 1/2 inches long. He is doing well. We feel really blessed that he didn't have to stay in the hospital longer than normal with the kidney problem he has. He will be seeing a pediatric urologist up at Primary's in the near future for follow ups. Here are some pictures of our new arrival:

our cute 2 year old

So this should have been posted about a month ago but we now have a two year old. He is so sweet. We had a fun birthday party for him - we went to the Fairmont Aquatic Center with some of my family (I'll post pics soon the camera is already in the overnight bag we have packed for the hospital). We took him to Build a Bear on his birthday and he made a cute dog. He loves to sleep with it tucked under his arm. He says the cutest things lately. When we are driving in the car he loves to look for trucks, any kind of truck is fascinating to him. He says Mom! look truck, mom truck! or Mom train! (when he sees the trax), or Mom Bus! He is also learning the colors and he loves orange and yellow. He loves to point out things that are different colors. Kids are so fun, we love our little boy, and are ANXIOUSLY awaiting the birth of our new little boy. Maybe he'll come this weekend if we're lucky: ) But for the mean time we'll enjoy our time alone with Jacob.
