James Michael Higgs

Sammie loves to hold James. She is so cute with him. She gives him lots of hugs and kisses.
Right after he was born. I only got to see him for a minute, but he was so cute. Amazing how quickly your life changes forever.
Dr. Daddy. Von got all suited up to go into the O.R
James getting all cleaned up. He came out crying. He does not like to be naked. Even now whenever we change his diaper he gets so mad.
Welcome James! He was so mad that they pulled him out. It took them a while to get him calmed down. He was born at 7:53 am on Tuesday, February 15th. He was 8lbs 1 oz. and 19 1/2 inches long. This birth was much different than Sammie's. We got up around 4:20 am and got all dressed and headed out to the hospital. We walked back to labor and delivery and checked in. Then we spent two hours getting all prepped and ready. Poor Von spent two hours trying to get some sleep in a very uncomfortable rolley chair. Then they wheeled me into the O.R. and gave me a very painful shot in the back and my entire lover body went numb. Von watched the surgery this time. It was crazy this time around because I was wide awake and very aware of what was going on. With Sam I was so out of it from two days of labor that I did't really remember much. James was kinda stuck in there so it took them a while to get him out. Once he was out he started crying right away and he didn't spot until they had him all bundled and warm. He is such a sweet little guy. He is a good eater most of the time and he is so fun to snuggle. He is perfect. Ten fingers, ten toes. Cute little cheeks and a little button nose. He has dark hair and long, long fingers. He also has long arms and legs. He is such a little miracle. We love him so much and are so blessed to have him in our family.

Earl and Colton.

We had a great time with Von's fam. Everyone, but Heather's fam was able to come. It was good to see everyone. Sammie loved having family in town. She loves attention and she got plenty! She loved her two uncles, Josh and Michael. Plus she now knows who Grandma and Grandma Doggett are and who Oma and Grandpa Higgs are. She points to pics around the house and she knows who is who. She is learning so much so fast. We had a great dinner and we all got to go see the new Harry Potter movie, which is awesome! We also did some black Friday shopping! Von and his brother's went out at 1am and got us a t.v. Then Von's mom and I went to JoAnn's to get some fabric. The lines were too long for us so we went back on Saturday and still got some awesome deals. We had a great weekend and I am so glad everyone came. I love spending the holiday's with family. For me the holiday's are not about what you get, but they are about who you spend them with. I am looking forward to Christmas in Idaho! I love seeing all of my fam! We have a great time together!

Train Ride!

So Von, Sam, and I went with some friends to Boulder City and rode the train. Sammie loved it! Plus there is are a bunch of old trains that you can look at.

Sammie and I. You can take this little train to the bone yard.

Sam loved to be right at the railing looking out.

Our own little conductor!

Sammie and Von. The whole day she kept saying "Choo, choo!"
After the train ride we got lunch and went to a park. This was a way cool park. There were fun toys and to top it all off there was a huge herd of big horn sheep that like to graze there. It was so cool. There were about 35 sheep just hangin out. Sam loved looking at the sheep! Great weekend!
