I want a cool talent!

I must say that I have some talented friends. My friend Randee took pictures of Jerzi the other day and although she was being a little punk and not cooperating, and pooped all over me and the carpet with that lovely yellow staining poop, Randee still managed to get some way cute pics. This one is my favorite.

One of my other friends, Sheridan, made this cute, cute cake for us when we came home from the hospital. Look at those cute little basketball shoes! I love it and i didn't want to cut into it at all cuz it was so cute. Pretty soon Had was like "Cin, do you want to just sit it on a shelf for decoration?" And Jete asked me every day if he could have some of Jerzi's birthday cake, so we finally cut it (actually Had did cuz i didn't want to ruin it) and the cake tasted so good too.

Thanks again Sheridan and Randee. You guys are amazing!!!

Halloween Pics

Even though Halloween has come and gone, I wanted to post pics so i could look back on them later. We got home from the hospital 2 days before Halloween, so i didn't really get anything for Jerzi to dress up as. I wanted to still dress her up a little, so we got a cute little Halloween beany for her to wear, and it ended up being too big, so here she is as a little...... Halloween ballerina? I don't know, it was the closest thing that she had to looking like she was dressed up. My friend made the outfit for her, and my sister in-law made her halloween bow.

When i asked Jete what he wanted to be for Halloween, he said "A bull rider!!!" in a rough, growly voice. So his Grandma's went to work. Grandma Pocock sent him the cute little outfit (and cowboy boots that he wouldn't wear),

and Grandma Fuller whipped up this bull (out of a shoe box and fabric) for him to ride so he looked more like a bull rider. He was one cute little bull rider. He was a stinker though and wouldn't hold the bull so we couldn't get any good pictures.

Gettin ready to go out trick or treatin with our new family of four. Ok, so we didn't really take Jerzi out. My mom stayed home with her while we took Jete.

We didn't get good pics of Jeter in his full blown costume, but the day he opened the package with all the bull ridin gear in it, he turned into a little bull rider. It was hilarious. He was posing like crazy for me. Here are some of my faves.

Pumpkin Carving

We carved pumpkins before Halloween, and before we had our sweet little baby, but I had to put pics of her up for everyone. So now here's what we did with Grandma Fuller the night before we went to the hospital to have the new babe. Jete was excited at first to carve them and to get the guts out of the pumpkin. Then he realized that it was staying on his hands and he started hating it and freaking out. He hates having his hands dirty!

Then we gave him a spoon to dig it out with and what do ya know?......Happy again!!!

Here's our lovely pumpkins. We're very creative in this family. HAHA
Mine is on the left, my mom's/Jeter's in the middle, and Had's on the right.

She's here!!!

The day finally came, we had our baby girl!!! We had her on Oct. 27th at 4:29 p.m. She weighed 8.1 lbs. and was 20 inches long- which is funny cuz that's exactly what Jeter weighed and measured. We are so excited to have her here and in our family. She's a really good baby so far. She mainly just sleeps and we have to force her to wake up and eat. I am loving having a girl and getting her dressed each day. I feel like i need to take a picture of her in every outfit and every pair of pajamas cuz she looks so cute in all this girl stuff. I'm doomed!

Jerzi Raye McArthur

Oh and the whole labor, delivery, and aftermath all went pretty good except for the fact that I felt EVERYTHING!!! It hurt like crap and i wanted to cry but she came fast so that part was good. I only had to push for like 15 minutes with her, compared to 3 hours with Jeter. I am feeling way better than i did after i had Jeter too. I can stand up, sit down, and walk around without feeling like i want to die.

Here's the proud Daddy, already snuggling with his baby girl. He's also doomed. HAHA

Here we are getting ready to go home from the hospital. We felt really bad cuz Jete couldn't come up there at all. They wouldn't allow any visitors under the age of 18 in the hospital because of the flu and H1N1 viruses going around, so Jete never got to see her until we got home. Luckily my mom was able to come out and help us. Thanks again Mom!

Jeter was excited to finally see her when we brought her in the door. It only lasted about 5 or 10 minutes, then he pretty much ignored her for the rest of the day. Now he's always wanting to hold her, feed her, and touch her. He hasn't figured out what "Soft" means yet. He is pretty cute with her though. He comes up to her and says "So cute, baby Jerzi." And he's always kissing her fingers and toes. He loves how little they are. He kisses them and says, "cute little fingers, cute little toes." He wants to be around her a lot. I can tell this is gonna be dangerous. After like 2 days of being home, I took my eye off him for like one minute, and then caught him jumping in her bed while she was in there! As soon as i saw him, he smiled and said, "Jumpin with baby Jerzi." Yikes!
