Uriah James was born Thursday, July 22nd, at 7:03 p.m. He weighed 8 pounds 8 ounces, was 21 inches long with ten fingers and ten toes.
My labor started 3:00 on Tue. so I didn’t get a lot of sleep in the following days. I’m still trying to catch up.
It was a long intense labor, with a few scares. We are thankful for all the prayers. We had two amazing midwives with us, and my mom was able to make is, which I was so thankful for.
Uriah was not breathing when he was born. The umbilical chord was wrapped around his left wrist, and got so tight as to cut off the circulation. The midwives knew there was something wrong, as they had been watching his heart rate. Immediately after he was born, they suctioned out his airways, gave him oxygen, and rubbing him to try to get him breathing. He was completely limp. They called for an ambulance, which showed up about five minutes later, but thankfully, Uriah had started breathing in the meantime. His heart had never stopped beating. I was pretty much in shock, just watching everything.
So we are enjoying the little miracle that the Lord has blessed us with, and are VERY thankful to say that Uriah is doing wonderful. Orion and I are doing fine as well. Orion thinks Uriah's the cutest baby ever. I am sleepy. :D

Well it happened! Our wedding was on June 20th 2009 and we were blessed with a beautiful day. It was sunny and warm, but not too warm. The ceremony whizzed by, but seemed to take forever, and was sealed by our very first kiss.
Pictures proceeded that, taken by our good friend Moriel, and she did a wonderful job. Finally we ate dinner, and took some more pictures.
Had a little dance... We, of course, did the classic virginia reel, and posties, and I only wish we could have danced more. Orion and I drove off into the sunset, pop cans in tow, around nine that night. We made it a few hours, only to realize that Orion had forgotten his wallet! So the next morning we had to head back, retrieve the wallet, say hi to everyone again, and start our long drive to Colorado.
We had two weeks set aside for the honeymoon. We spent a week in Colorado, and the other week making our way home. We stopped in Nebraska and South Dakota.
In Steamboat springs, Colorado, we hiked up fish creek falls all the way to the top. It was a mountain! I was affected by the altitude, and found it hard to breath, but Orion was pretty much running up the trail. :P
We also went swimming in a hot springs, and went white water rafting! Didn't get pictures though.
We drove through the rocky mountain national park, and saw some moose and elk.
There was snow!
We stopped by to visit the Weiland family in Nebraska on our way back.
We saw Chimney rock.
And mount Rushmore
We were blessed with a wonderful honeymoon. Got to see lots of sights.
We have now been married over seven months, and are expecting out first baby in July!
Marriage is a new journey in life. It's not always easy, in fact, it's down right hard at times. But the reward is well worth it. Life is definitely different. New challenges and new responsibilities. I can't believe I'm going to have a baby in five months! I'm definitely not a kid anymore. ;) I'm looking forward the the growing changes the Lord's bringing into my life.
