Travis Foulger Asay


In his happy place...



He loves to have his hands up around his face as you will see in a lot of the pictures

Our new little family


The hospital had him wear these weird little dress looking things. We thought they were funny because it made it look like he didn't have any legs

My cute little boys!

First bath at home

He found his finger...yum!




I have finally had a moment to sit down and actually make a real post with a little more detail about our new arrival. I started having contractions Sunday night about 9:00, but I wasn't really sure they were the real thing. With Carson, my water broke and I immediately had contractions about 8 minutes apart, so there was no guessing that I was in labor, but this time, my water never broke. As the night progressed, my contractions got closer and closer together and more and more intense until I couldn't handle it any more. About 6 a.m. we dropped Carson off at one of his little friends house for the day and headed to the hospital. One the way to the hospital, I kept telling Christian that I didn't remember being in so much pain with Carson as I was this time. Well, come to find out, I was already dialated to almost a 9! So no wonder I was in so much pain...by this time with Carson, I had had some good drugs going through me for quite a while! I just made the window to recieve any sort of pain relief and man was I glad to get it! Anyways, at 9:22 a.m., after not very much pushing, Travis Foulger Asay was born. He weighed 6 pounds 13 ounces and was 20 inches long. When they did his initial check up, they thought that part of one of his lungs might be collapsed, but after 2 x-rays were sent up to a specialist in North Platte, NE, things were found to be just fine! We spent a total of two nights in the hospital and got to go home Wednesday. My mom came Monday and is still here helping out. She has been so much help. This weekend, my dad, brother, and Christian's mom are coming down to meet the little guy! We are so excited to see them. Travis has been such a good baby! He pretty much already has a routine down for sleeping...yeah for us! Carson absolutely loves his baby brother. He would rather call him baby brother than his name...it's too cute! He loves to kiss on him and hold him. He's going to be a great big brother! Well, now that I have bored you with all the details, here are some more pictures. Enjoy!!
