After 38 hours of labor with an hour and a half of that straight pushing, little Hyrum finally came. This is a picture of the doctor and nurse that were key in the delivery.
Hyrum was born weighing in at 11 lbs 10 oz. As you can see his head was a little cone shaped when he first came out. Even the doctors were amazed at how big he was.
I love this picture of Hyrum when he's getting all cleaned up. I think he was a little bit shocked to come into this world.
Our first family candid with proud daddy and mommy!
He's a very strong little man, and on his first day he lifted his head up and looked right at me.
One of our first days home from the hospital.
Miles and I could not be more proud of our beautiful little boy. Each day has been bringing us new surprises and new things to learn about our little bundle of Joy. We'll keep you posted as he grows.

So yesterday, we were reflecting on all that has gone on the past year, and we would have to say a lot has happened. First of all, we got married last July, and finished out our summer jobs in Alaska with Miles working on the slope (the oil fields) and Me as a tour guide on the trains. We came back down here to Utah and moved into our first apartment in North Orem. We were kept busy there with our callings in the church, Miles was a scout leader, and me in the Releif Society. Miles completed two more semesters of school at BYU studying Manufacturing Engineering. He furthered his interest and passion of building things by building a tricycle from an old Honda Accord. I continued working as an office assistant for Professional Marketing International, while supporting the two of us. Miles is now attending another semester of school while working part-time at Home Depot (where everyone loves his charisma and charm) and finishing up his summer car project. I am now counting down the days till I get to be a stay at home mom with little Hyrum, who is due in just less than four weeks. We are excited to have him as an addition to our little family. We just recently moved into our second apartment at Wymount Terrace in Provo to be closer to BYU, so Miles can actually spend time with me and the baby during the school year. Though a year has flown by, we realize that we've already made a lot of memories together, and we look forward to many many more.
