4 Months Later...

Well we have had little Kolby now 4 months (almost). And I'm proud to say we are still standing!!

We are figuring out that babies grow real fast! Kolby is now 26" long and 16 lbs. He is growing like corn!

We are now up in Utah visiting family. We are happy to report that Kolby is a good traveler. In fact he is a really calm baby in general! His favorite things to do are eat, sleep, and play peek-a-boo. He has started to talk as well.

He is voicing his displeasure for bed time right now... He is missing his favorite blanky which he rubs on his face to fall asleep. But this is too cute not to love.

Bree and I are still working hard. I am 2 weeks away from getting my associates degree barring any additional hurdles BYU-I wants to put in my way. So hopefully next time I can say I'm a college graduate!

The baby has come...

Fresh out the womb!
     As it turns out, mommy got her wish! Kolby Todd Williams was born on March 27th at 10:57 pm, 4 days early! He weighed in at 7.25 lbs and measuring 19 inches. Breena was in labor for 12 hours and was in good health afterwards as was the baby.

     Two days later we left the hospital and Breena along with Grandma Teri and Grandma Vicki are spoiling Kolby. He is the cutest thing we ever saw, and I think he is beginning to realize it. In the past week, he's grown another inch and put on 6 ounces. Mommas milk has been good to Kolby. His nickname is quickly becoming pedoso, which in Spanish means Fartsy, because he can let 'em rip. He also likes to listen to Coldplay and sleep. He's really been a bundle of joy to have. It is amazing the emotions you feel towards someone you've only known for two weeks.

In his sunday best.

Kolby starting to look at the world

It's almost time...

     So it's been a while since we last updated... 6 months almost. Anyways big changes have happened. Other than Breena's growth, we finished another semester of school and moved to Texas!! We moved back in with my family until Kolby is born and then start school down here. The cold of Rexburg was not treating us very well.

The Drive
     I wish I could say that the move down to Texas was uneventful and everything went as planned. But it wasn't and didn't. We rented a uhaul to pack our stuff in, and of course the one we had saved up for was too small for our stuff. Big thanks to Nathan Call who helped us pack, unpack, and repack the trailer 3 times after 11 o'clock. Eventually we just had to tie stuff on top and leave some things in Rexburg in order to get out of our apartment on time. The plan was to drive to Breena's Dad's house where we eventually upgraded our trailer and went back to Rexburg to get everything.

    The first day of our actual drive down to texas went as planned. It was quick, with clear skies, and good weather. That was until night fall, when a freak ice storm struck in the middle of New Mexico! The final hour of our drive for the day turned into a 4 hour nightmare that included us slipping on the ice into oncoming traffic! Breena almost went into labor on that one... When we finally pulled into Gallup, we were greeted by a snowstorm that had already dumped four inches in three hours. We grabbed a hotel for the night and started off early again the next day. At about 2 the next day we reached Albuquerque, where Breena took over driving. Driving out of Albuquerque, there is a slow sloping mountain pass you have to climb. The previous year when we had driven to Texas, in much better conditions, we got a flat tire on this road. Well we passed the exit where we had pulled off the road and had spent a couple of hours trying to change our tire. Breena exclaimed "We have left Albuquerque without any car problems!" Not even 30 seconds later the car shifted gears, the tires slipped, and our truck and trailer where skidding out of control. We collided safely on the side wall putting a big dent on our front grill. Luckily no one was around us at that time, and the car was still drivable. The next day was spent on iced over snowy roads. At one point between Witchita Falls and Dallas we traveled at top speeds of 30 mph.

     We did safely arrive and are now hard at work in Houston. Breena and I were able to keep our jobs at Wal-Mart and Best Buy. Now we wait...

"The End" of March

   The end is in sight! 9 months of growing and the baby is almost here. Breena is now to term, with her due date just a week away on March 31st. Breena couldn't be more excited for him to come, just so she isn't miserable in the Texas heat! Everything is going smoothly now that we are settled. Hopefully we update a little bit more and we'll be sure to get pictures up of baby Kolby.

The growth of September

September, what to say, other than boring but busy.  The month consisted of TJ working hard at his dentistry classes and Breena putting off yet another day of homework, but still making it to work late of course.

I would like to announce that TJ has a job at Best Buy, worst job ever in my opinion because he's a nerd.  He is working on the sales floor in digital technologies selling computers and accessories. He is also salivating over his discount so I've started hiding his wallet so he can't come home with any surprises.  So for now the dream of his new big screen TV and iPad will have to wait, we do have a child to think of.

Now it's TJ's turn to make fun of Breena. She had to go and get herself electrocuted! While taking film out of a disposable camera at work, she got zapped pretty good. After discussing it with a medical professional, it was decided to send her to the emergency room to get the baby checked out. After a few scary minutes, and what seemed like an eternity of waiting, the nurse was able to locate the heartbeat of the baby. We are happy to report that the baby now seems more energized than ever, keeping Bree up almost constantly with his kick-boxing skills. In a couple weeks we might be able to find out the gender of the baby. We are excited for that.

We have also started playing intramural sports this month. We are playing softball and soccer on the same teams. Our record is 1-1 in each sport. The intramural season is crappy as we have only played 2 games and the playoffs start this week! So our season could be over before it even began if we lose this week...

We are also proud to announce that we finally stopped being lazy and decorated for a holiday. Halloween down, Christmas to come. Lets see if our new tradition will make it.

 Other than that it's work, work, work and wonder how we're gonna make it to next month. But we always do!

Hello World!! 2

Making his first appearance to the world is Jr.!!

If you look you can see it's arm and leg.

Breena and I are happy to announce that we are having a baby! She is currently 10 weeks along, due April 2nd, 2011. So that might be a little preemptive to call it Jr., but fact of the matter is that Williams #3 is alive and kicking. We had our 2nd doctor visit and were able to hear #3's heartbeat and see it. All is well and progressing perfectly. The doctor noted that #3 is already shadow boxing and after pointing that out, we noticed that #3 is already super active... and very responsive to Daddy's voice!! (it's so weird to have that label)
