Some may have heard that Bentley was in the hospital last night...and I'll explain why. :(
Yesterday he was circumsized at about 10:30 in the morning. We were required to stay a half hour afterwards to make sure that he wasn't bleeding, which he wasn't, so we went home. After normal diapers (not much blood) all day, Sarah was holding Bentley, set him down at 7:30, then noticed blood on her shirt. His diaper was soaked with blood, soaking his jammies too. We hurried into the ER in the 0 degree weather. Our poor baby had an IV, and blood drawn numerous times, wearing heart moniters, while nurses were desperately trying to stop his bleeding from his circ. They also took my blood if there be need for a transfusion, which thankfully there wasnt.We got transferred upstairs to a room in PICU, where we settled a little easier. It took over 3 hours for it to stop bleeding, and he stopped just in time, as they were just calling a crew for LifeFlight to take him to Spokane. (he must have known his mommy would get sick in a helicopter) Down in the lab, they tested his blood for blood disorders, clotting disorders, and checked his platelet levels. ALL of which came back completely normal. Then the big questions was WHY he was bleeding sooo much!?! We still don't know exactly, but it may be a deeper blood issue (they're sending blood to a lab in MN too) or there may have just been an artery clipped during the circ. We'll hear more later when test results come back. We are watching him closely...he's able to wear a diaper now, which is nice :) We were released this afternoon, and hope to get a good nights sleep tonight, and pray for no more bleeding. We have an appt scheduled for Friday afternoon to get his site checked by his pediatrician. The picture was from this afternoon, once he got all his moniters taken off. He was sooo good thru being poked and proded, he only cried a small handfull of times, and his vitals stayed super strong even though he had lost a lot of blood and was being handled constantly. He's so strong and such a trooper for putting up with this past day!

Mommies, if you're looking for cute hats this winter for your sweet bundles of joy, check out Lindsay's Green Vanilla Baby. Also check out her store on Esty! Thanks sooo much for making them for our boys....they're so super cute!
- So, Im always worried about my milk supply/quality, which clearly is OK....
- You KNOW you're a tired mama when you find that you're nursing pad is on BACKwards. Sticky on sore is NOT a fun combo...o.u.c.h.
- Yes, tired...but Bentley's doin really good. Most nights he gets up 1-2 times..and just to eat, then fall back asleep. I love it ! :)

When we got home from the birth center on Friday, Sarah made a special sign, just for Bentley :)
Adrian, Anna and the girls came for a visit Saturday, and here are all the second cousins! That fun number of 5 will turn to 6 in a few weeks, when Ella, Tessa and Jaci get a new baby too!
"ock, ock, ock" goes the big brother rocking the wee one :)
Oh, this is just the beginning..... LOL

Most people say that their second labor is somewhat easier and faster...but NOT OURS! It was shorter time from very start to finish, but definately harder and at least 5 more hours of hard, active back labor. But once again like with Coy, I only pushed for a few minutes. Just when I thought the night would never end, the clock struck 1 (am that is) and I spent my very last ounce of energy on delivering a perfect 9 lb 15 oz little human being that we immedeatly knew would complete our family! Auntie Sarah and big brother Coy met Bentley when he was just seconds old, and were as in love with him as mommy and daddy were.
Here is Bentleys welcome crew!
Auntie Sarah is sooooo awesome! Thank you so much for helping us with Coy, and being supportive and helpful throughout the day!
Starting on the left, is Linsey (RN, birth center manager) Jeanne (our wonderful midwife) and us. This was about 1on Friday afternoon as we were just leaving. Our experience at the birth center was so nice and we felt safe and so comfortable. Bentley was the second baby born there...so we got beat by a week. And yes, Coy's sock IS missing...he and Logan ran down to the grocery store quick, during which he somehow lost his sock... :)
And here's our new little scrunched up sweet pea!
Im on antibiotics for a breast infection, and recovering from a high fever, so im sorry for this post not being done FRIDAY, like I wanted to do! :) I have lots more pictures and fun stuff to post, so hopefully I will get to them tomorrow!

Ellen, Trapper and Quiana made a trip to Montana, and we got to have them stay at our house for a night! Then for the weekend, they headed over to Hugh and Carmens, where we all met for a day of lots of fun and cousins!
Years ago, this was the go-cart that belonged to Logan, Kenny and Rodney. NOW...it's Trapper, Spencer and Coy who have laid claims to it! OH yes, we can't wait till they're all a bit older, driving and fixing this thing... :)

We got a new freezer, and what better thing to do with the box than make a fort? There's also a sign that says "Boyz Only". Hmmmm. That's ok though, cause this mommy is too big to fit in there anyway!
Sunday morning shaving time! Coy was sooo eager to help Daddy shave. He even shaved his own lips...no hair there of course, but tickled a little :)
