my sister in law amy just had her 4th baby- his name is Samuel Ashby Clark. he was born on Memorial Day at 7:18 am and was 8 pounds 6 oz. and 19 inches long. i had the pleasure of being invited to the birth! let me tell you what, it was amazing. from the time she was prego, she invited me to come to her ultra sound to find out the gender. it was really great to be able to be there to hear the heartbeat and find out the gender. i loved it.
at the birth, amy did amazing and i was SO intrigued by everything they do. the birth was simply an amazing experience. i loved every minuted of it. they even let me cut the chord! i think this little guy will be my BFF. i already am so close to her other kids too.
hes the cutest thing ever and came out perfect. thanks amy for letting me be part of your very special day. i felt special and flattered that you wanted me to be there with you. it was truly an experience i will never ever forget. love you little sammy!
my favorite picture ever.
it didn't really make me sad that it wasn't me having the baby. it mostly just made me excited to experience it when the time comes. now i know a little about how things go and it doesnt scare me as much anymore. i am amazed at how birth happened... haha! what girls have to go through.
btw- since we are talking about babies, updates on the whole PCOS thing- TMI: i was on metformin for 2 months, and had to go off of it. it was terrible. i have never been so sick in my life. everything i was eating was going straight through me and i hated it. i felt like i was going to throw up all day long. i now have a doctors appointment monday to see what the next step is. try a different medicine i hope.. through the 2 months i was on metformin, i didn't ovulate. a little worrisome about that... but, i know it will work out!
another update i wanted to give was about the job situation. i have decided to give my two weeks to my lehi job. my boss at the salon told me they have been turning down tons of people, and want me to work more so i can make more! thats a good sign. i prayed about it for a long time and just felt like i needed to do something for ME for once. i just want to be at the salon and work hard to build up my clientèle even more. I feel great about my decision i know things will work out. my spiritual and physical well being was lacking so much and i am looking forward to having more time to serve others and to work out. (!)
kev and i have made new friends in our ward. we love it more than i could have imagined. everyone is SO great and so loving and friendly. our new friends alex and allison are AWESOME And we love hanging out with them! of course i still miss my awesome becca and alex evans from our old ward... we havent seen them forever. so becca if you are reading this, CALL ME! :)
ALSO! Kevin got a job at u.s. synthetics! yay! thanks to all those who prayed for him to get that job. im excited about it :) he will still stay at CR in the mornings, because his job at u.s. wont start till 3 pm. (i know, im never gonna see him...)
