Hey Y'all. The biggest news of the week is that we actually saw the temperatures down to 58. It was Hannah's best day ever. We got to wear Sweatshirts and everything. I know that for all of you in Utah that have inches of snow you probably think we are crazy for wanting cool temperatures, but we loved it. Life is some what returning to normalcy. Hannah is learning to deal with 2 kids. It's kind of funny because it's hard for me to imagine my boss walking up to me and saying, "Jake, I know your day is completely full, but we want you to do twice as much." But hey, millions upon millions of people have done, and she'll get it done too.

Work is going well for me. I have to start traveling next week, which is good because it will be a good opportunity to get to know my areas better, but bad, because I hate being away from home.

Molly has been a lot of fun lately. She loves her sister. It doesn't matter what she's doing, she has to run and tell Annie. "I'm watching Dora" "I'm eating lunch Annie." It's pretty cute. We can't beleive how well she can talk. She says the cutest things. For Instance, the other day we were singing the "If all the raindrops were lemon drops and gum drops" song and when we were done molly said, "That's a Yummy song." Or when she gets off of the potty (this is gross so stop reading if you don't want to hear it) she looks into the toilet and says, "look Dad, a dolphin" or "It's a Pickle" We just can't get enough of her.

And of course Sweet Annie. She is getting big. She is a little fussy, but we can handle that. Hannah's sister Holly is here with this week and we are excited to show another family member our abode. Hannah insists it's not enough, so you are all invited to come and see us.

Well, I will write again when I have something a little more exciting to say.
This is Annie. In case you didn't know.
If I look a little creepy in this picture it's because Hannah always tells me I squint in my pictures so I am over compensating a little in this one. We sure are a cute family.
Doesn't she look so alert. We think she looks way older than 2 weeks.
This is Molly joing the iPod generation. She can't quite fit the white earbuds in her ears, but she still thought this was pretty cool.

Sleepy Face!
And the torture begins.
Just a cute picture of our sweet little Molly.

More Guests and More Fun...

We had the chance to show off our new little one to more family. Last Tuesday Hannah's Mom and Dad showed up in order to help us with the new little one, and we couldn't have been more grateful. Don't ask them to see any pictures of their trip because you won't see anything besides our front room. We felt bad that they made it all the way to Houston and didn't see one exciting thing. Of course we kept Lynda busy with dishes and Laundry (yipee) and Lauritz read a couple of books and had a few naps, but that's about as exciting as it got for them. We're sorry, but so greatful they were here.

Hannah is feeling a lot better. Annie is as healthy as a horse. We took her to the doctor and he kept saying, "this is the most perfect baby, I can't even find one thing wrong with her." She is doing really well at night. Usually only gets up once to eat, and goes right back to sleep (knock on wood). Molly is handling the whole situation pretty well. She is a little emotional, but everytime she wakes up she'll come out and kiss her and hug her, and say "hi, I'm your big sister" and wants to make sure she always has her binky. Anyway, below, you'll find some pictures. Enjoy.

Molly has a lot of stuffed animals.

Here is Annie getting her first bath from Hannah
Molly has aspirations of being a photographer, and since she can't hold the camera and push the button, I have to really struggle to get into the frame so she feels accomplished.
Pretty cute, huh? We were worried Hannah and I used all of our cute on Molly, but it looks like we had some left.
Just a cute picture of Molly.
If there is ever a time when Molly looks ghetto we make sure and get it on camera. She found these Barbie sleeping bags, and she thought they were gloves. And since she knows you use gloves to plant flowers we planted about 3 fake flowers, and gave them about 50 gallons of pretend water.

Well Everyone, We love you all and hope you are all doing well. We sure are doing great. Take care.

Just an Update

Hey everyone...We are home from the hospital. Yesterday at about 1 pm, Hannah and Annie were released from the hospital. Hannah is pretty slow going, but she really pushes herself so she can get better. In my opinion she can take all the time she wants. Annie is doing really well. She is already so alrert, and seems a little more like a one month old. We just think she gets cuter and cuter everyday. So far, Molly has been really good with her. I think she is a little emotional over not being able to spend one on one time with her mom, but she's been cute. As soon as we got home, she ran over to Annie, and said, "Hi Annie, I'm Molly." It was really cute. Grandma and Grandpa Oyler went hometoday, and Grandpa Lauritz and Grandma Lynda arrived today, which has been great. I can already tell they will be a big help. Anyway, here are some pictures.

Here is Annie. She is still at the hospital but you can see how alert she looks.

Molly wanted some pictures taken of her too. This one was pretty cute.
Here is Annie. Isn't she beautiful. She is already a pretty big fan of the binki.
Here is another one, just hanging out the day we got home.
Here is Annie at the hospital. She was still a little swollen, but you can see those dimples pretty good in this one.

Well, everyone. Thanks for all of your love and support. We have loved the little notes and emails we have received. It's nice to know you are all thinking of us.

Annie Eliza Oyler is Here

Hey everyone, today (Friday, Oct. 5) at 11:05 am, Hannah had our little baby. She is as healthy as can be, and is so beautiful. Her name is Annie Eliza Oyler. She weighed, 7 lbs and 11 0z, and was 19.5 inches long. It's wierd having a normal sized baby. Molly was so small she seems like a Giant. So far, Molly has been really cute with her... we'll see if it sticks. Hannah is feeling really good considering everything she went through. After we had been at the hospital for about 5 mintues and they had her laying down and she passed out, and everyone came rushing in, and was wondering what caused it (was it the I.V., or was she sick, or did she have a history of fainting) and I said, nope, she's just nervous. It was pretty funny, and she was ok...but that was the biggest complication. We got to the hospital at 9 am and the baby was here by 11 am...not bad. ...Well, enjoy the piuctures.
Here is a picture of Hannah and Baby. She looks good huh?
Here is Molly and the baby. See, she is so excited.
Here are here little peepers.
Cute, she is smiling for the camera, and she has dimples.

She is posing again. Showing off that smile again.
Here is a good shot of the dimples. We love you all.
