He's Here!

Jarom Hyrum Brown was born Monday November 19th at 1:39 PM, weighing in at 7 lbs 2 oz, 20 inches long. He looks a lot like Kaden to us but has a very different personality. We are so in love with him and adjusting to life as a family of 4. Here are some pictures of the cutie and the longer story is below.
(By Jimmy) Amy checked in at 7am, and right away the morning started off a little fun! They couldn't find her vein for the I.V. and she got pretty sick while they poked at her :) After two hours they got it going and things went much smoother from there! Her contractions and dilation progressed very fast, they actually tried slowing it down for awhile because the baby's heart rate started to dramatically dip during contraction. They theorized that the cord was somehow impeded so they repositioned Amy and did an Amniotic infusion. That did the trick, baby's heart rate stabilized for the rest of the delivery, though he was still sunny side up! However right about when Amy got to a 10 and the contractions where on top of each other he decided he wanted to come out in a much more comfortable position so he turned himself around! 30 minutes later the doc came in, and after only 7 minutes of pushing cute little Jarom Hyrum Brown announced himself at 1:39 pm with with a strong set of vocal cords and a thick black mop of hair! He's 7 pounds and 2 ounces, and 20 inches long, healthy little baby. We are so excited to actually have him in our room this time around, and not whisked away to the NICU like Kaden was! He's a happy and often quiet little guy, he's looks a lot like Kaden, with some distinct differences in individual features. We are very happy to have this new little one in our home and happy the delivery went so smoothly. Amy is feeling well, and spending as much time as possible cuddling with little jer-bee (that's Kaden's nickname for him). -Jim, Amy, Kaden, and Jarom

Quick Update

I realized the other day that I have more fun looking at everyone else's blogs and not updating mine.  Since the last post announcing the baby's gender we've done a bunch. 

I colored my hair dark and love it!

We had a 2 1/2 week long trip, putting 4,000 miles on our car to my family reunion.  It was very fun but also very exhausting traveling 4,000 miles with a 2 year old and pregnant lady.  It was great to see family we haven't seen in years.  Kaden met some cousins, aunts and uncles for the first time!

Went camping (kinda, cause we left in the middle of the night due to animal noises close to our campsite and our screaming kid)

 Played out the last couple days of summer at the splash pad. 

Kaden started potty training and turned 2.

I started school again.  With baby coming I'll be having a nice long break soon for maternity leave during the holidays.  We took some family pictures that we'll re-do when baby comes.


We enjoyed an afternoon at the aquarium again.

Had a blast celebrating Halloween!

And played a ton with this cute 2 year old.


We have about 2 1/2 weeks till baby comes, so we are getting organized at home prepping for the debut.  Someday I'll get some rest!

Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween!!! I realized I could only pull off these costumes this year with the baby skeleton in my belly. Jimmy had a burger and fries in his, and Kaden had candy and suckers in his. We had a blast carving pumpkins and getting ready for Halloween. Kaden did a great job trick or treating and saying thanks and Happy Halloween! And this is a pregnancy shot at 36 weeks. We can't wait for baby to come!!
