I can't even describe how much I love saying that I have 2 kids. Jordan and I can say that we have "children"...that's just crazy but awesome at the same time. It makes me feel so happy seeing how much Massey loves his little sister, he won't stop kissing her! He's still pretty rough and has tried to share his food with her but other than that, he's being pretty good so far. It's now being almost 12 days since she was born and even though we're loving the whole experience we're starting to feel the effects of not getting very much sleep. It's definitely a LOT more work, and boy have we had some rough nights. These last couple of days I've thought a lot about how Olivia had 6 kids and my mom 8...and I just can't imagine what that would've being like.
They're just amazing women and I hope to be like them some day.

Here are some picture we took at Stone Hill since we decided to spend the weekend at grandma and grandpa Andersons' house to get out of the heat (we don't have AC in our apt) and it was great! Grandma Anderson feed us really yummy food and simply let us hang out.

Here is a picture of Massey being as happy as he can be after keeping his parents up for most of the night.

I love this pictures of Massey kissing his baby

Rebeca's first week

This is Ruth giving Rebeca her 1st bath. She is such a good, quiet baby. She hardly cried while Ruth was giving her a bath and she loved having her hair washed. Just like Massey did!
You can see that Massey was a little anxious to see what was happening up in the sink.

Here is Massey working in the garden in front of our apartments.

Here's a great picture of mommy, baby and Massey just as he was coming in from a hard day's plantin'.

Our 2nd bundle of joy

Well, our family continues to grow. Our daughter Rebeca Olivia Anderson was born on Sunday, July 19th at 7:52am. There are no words to express how happy we feel right now. Massey couldn't be a better big brother, he totally loves his little sister. Everyday I feel better physically and it helps that I have a wonderful husband who is willing to do all the house chores for me. Thanks to everyone who has called and offered help. Thanks to our families who have been amazingly supportive in all aspects, we will be eternally grateful for everything you've done for us.

Pues nuestra familia continua creciendo. Nuestra hija Rebeca Olivia Anderson nacio el dia domingo 19 de de Julio a las 7:52am. No hay palabras para expresar la felicidad que sentimos en estos momentos. Massey quiere mucho a su hermanita.
Cada dia me siento mejor fisicamente y el hecho de tener a un marido super bueno que me hace todos los quehaceres del hogar ayuda bastante.
Gracias a nuestra familias en especial por todo el apoyo que nos han brindado, les estaremos eternamente agradecidos por todo lo que han hecho por nosotros.

Here are some pictures we took at the hospital.

Welcome Baby Rebeca

Today, July 19, 2009 Rebeca Anderson was born at 7:52 am here in Reno at Saint Mary's hospital. Last night we went to see Harry Potter with Micah and Camille and about half way through the movie Ruth had a couple of pretty good contractions, but we didn't think much of it. With Massey she had tons of contractions for days before he was born so we thought we still had a long time before Rebeca would be born.
At about 5:30 this morning Ruth woke me up because she was having more contractions. I had already been woken up lots of times in the night by Massey. We were going to just leave him with Ruth's parents on Saturday night (they were babysitting him for us while we went to the movie) but got a call at about 11pm letting us know that Massey wasn't sleeping and he was crying for mom. I went and picked him up and all of last night he didn't sleep well. Maybe he knew something was coming today.
We got to the hospital at about 6:20am and everything just fell into place. The doctor showed up almost immediatly and the surgery started about an hour after we got here. Here are some pictures/video of the birth. She weighted 7.1 lbs and was 19.5 inches long

Now we are just hanging out in room 250 in Post-partum getting visitors. Thank you to everyone who has helped us physically, or with prayers.
