New baby boy!!!

Early Tuesday morning 3 am I woke up with some regular contractions and after a bit thought we'd better play it safe and head to the hospital. We were checked in at 4:30 and by 7:30 he was born. It was wonderful! We named him Russell Ames Whiting. He was 7 lbs 8 ozs and 20 1/2 inches long. He looks alot like the other Whiting babies.
We're excited and feel very blessed to have him here with us.

The other kids are always wanting to hold him.

Pictures of the house

Today, Saturday Feb 20th is my due date. Nothing is happening.
Anna really likes to go get the mail, and check out that outfit! It's really cold outside but she dresses like a Vegas girl.

I've got a spot set aside for the new baby's picture.

One of my favorite things is the laundry room. It's not decorated all cute or anything but it's up by the bedrooms and has a counter where I can put the kids' clothes.

Anna's room

Kaylee loves having her own room so Anna doesn't mess it up.

The cute boys' room. I love that shelf that Todd made.

Yes that's our moving truck

Well. . . we enjoyed 5 wonderful months in Yakima, but in order to have a job, we have moved to Utah. Todd is working with the same group he did in Vegas, but now they have a new venture for him in SLC. We found a house to rent in Bluffdale (west of the Ikea or prison-- part way between Provo and Salt Lake). It's out where there's some space around us, which Todd (growing up in Texas) has been wanting for awhile. The people here are very down to earth and friendly which we enjoy very much. The kids have been happy in their new school- which is good. It's hard starting over again- I still miss friends in Las Vegas and then got to also love many wonderful people in Yakima.
We moved a week and a half ago. My mom, dad, Lisa and Alan were lifesavers at helping us with all the "little stuff" at the end, as well as of course all the big stuff. Dallin was going strong all day and then finally just stopped and napped in the middle of the floor.
That old Yakima house was awesome.

There was a beach party at the elementary school so we dressed up a bit for it.
2 1/2 weeks til the baby is due. I love feeling it move around in my belly.
