5 years married, 4 years old, and a 1 year old

We have been married for 5 years today Treyson is turning 4 years old and Bridger Bradshaw is 1. Also my Great Uncle Jack would have had his birthday today as well but I am not sure how old he would have been. I have two pictures of Treyson but I need to get pictures of when he was born from my mom. I did not order any from the hospital becuase they were taken the night he was born with a cone head and they did not even really bathe him. I will get pictures of Jalen posted as well. I hope you dont fall asleep it is kind of long sorry!

Treyson Thomas " Tbone"

Treyson I was excited but scared when I got pregnent with Treyson. I had to stop all of my heart meds I was on 3 at that time immediatley. Went into Dr. Brown and he told me not to be offended but he did not even want to attempt to deliver him in Richfield and felt more comfortable if I delivered in Provo incase anything happened. My heart Dr liked that idea as well. He set me up with some baby specialist that were from the U but came to Utah Valley to monitor my pregnency. Since I was 5 weeks along I was to a Dr once a week getting blood pressure checked etc.... Wether it be in Richfield and Provo and also having ultrasounds once a month. We found out we were having a little boy in late July Nate had to stay home and work so my mom and Jocelyn and I went to my specialist appointment in provo and there it was he was definatly a boy!!! no mistaking it. They asked me every visit if I knew what I was having I had to tell them yes but let me know if it changed. It never did. I had a very good pregnancy no complications. A female Dr delivered Treyson I cant remember her name due to the fact I met her 3 weeks before I delivered. So on the night of December 11th we went to Nates Christmas party and the Meacham family party. When I got home I kept going to the bathroom I told Nate I did not think I drank that much water tonight. After midnight while going potty a gush of fluid came didn't think anything of it. At about 3:30 am I knew I was having labor pains and since we had made a trip to provo the week before in false labor we didnt want to do it again. So I did what the drs told me to take a warm bath and if the pains get worse that usually means you are in labor. Well they got worse so I told Nate to pack a bag and we would go to Richfield and get checked first before going to provo. He said nope your not in labor we will just end up coming back home. So we went to sevier valley first they hooked me up and yeah I was having contractions they checked me and did a test came back and asked if I had been leaking fluids it was about 4 in the morning I told her at abou 1215 I kept going potty and a gush came. Her eyes kind of got big and said well you are 90 percent ephased and dialated to a 3 let me call Dr Brown. In came happy dr brown he looked at us and said head up to provo I will call them and they will be waiting for you I will call your Dr. He had to tell Nate 3 times we were having a baby that day and it would not be a waisted trip. Than by about 5 in the morning I realized I had to be to work at 6 am so we had to call my boss Kathy and she had to call us back when she woke up and realized what we told her. So we went home and packed Nate a bag!!! and headed north. Almost hit a deer just out of Venice and almost hit one coming into Levan. We had to stop in Nephi so Nate could get some caffeine to wake him up. My pains were getting a little harder but not too bad. We got to Utah Valley and went up to the delivery floor and had to argue with the nurses that I was the cardiac patient they were expecting. I were there by 730 am. I was dialted to a 4 when I got there and still 90 percent I believe. Than my favorite thing happened I had an epidural in me right when I got there. I could not push or they did not want me to feel any labor due to less stress on my heart. I had to let treyson work his way through the birth canal. I was fully dialated by noon however it took him a while to work his way down. At about 6 pm My mom and my two sister inlaws Cherish and Michelle walked in. They werent there for very long when the Dr said we were ready she said they could stay in the room it was up to me and I told them I did not care. Nate told my mom she had to sit in the chair and no sound effects as my mom usually does. It was a neat experience until one of the sister in laws had to say so thats what it looks like thanks guys. Tbone came out with a fast heart rate which I am sure he still has and the dr told the nurse it was ok cause his heart rate was fast during the whole pregnancy which it was! we stayed in Utah Valley for 2 days and was able to bring our sweet one home. I love being a mom to 3 great kids!!! Happy Birthday Tbone!

The Story Of How We Met

I was 26 Nate was 30 I started going to the "older" Singles activities for something to do. Through one of my friends I had met a person their by the name of Dorothy Muir. She kept telling me that this guy had come to a singles activity one that I had missed and she gave him my number. Well over a month had gone by and Dorothy kept asking if he had called me yet. Heck no everyone kept telling me they had someone to set me up with so I just blew it off until the call came one day. I was surprised. He wanted to take me out so we made our plans. I was running on the ambulance at that time our first date was August 1st 2003 one of the busiest weekends on the ambulance and I believe that weekend still holds the record. I had to find someone to cover my shift so I could go on this date. I was so nervous he came to my door and picked me up my first though was hummm not bad and look at those gorgeous blue eyes and the eyelashes. He was driving a 1986 blue and white ford diesel pickup at the time. He made a comment about his truck and I told him not to worry I was used to farm trucks I think I hurt his feelings some. We went miniture golfing in which I kicked his butt!!!! and went to Mad house in Salina to eat. We kind of decided we didnt want to end the date so we went and rented movies. I cant remember what time he left my house but it was late. We set up another date which I figured he would just not call well he called the next day and came over to hang out. He came in that second night had a horse shoe trader paper and a mountain dew I looked up and he had pulled a Dr pepper out of his back pocket I tell him that is when he had me was at the Dr Pepper. We dated and did not spend very many days apart. He left roses on my back porch step and when I got off work at midnight that was the best thing in the world to come home too!!! I want to thank him for 5 of the most wonderful years of my life. I love being married to him and cant wait for many more!!!! Happy Anniversary Nate I love You Very Much!!!

You have never laughed so hard in your life I will try and get pictures of T-bone not of Me and Ambs we will post with end results. But Treyson stuck through two excercise videos one with the ball and the other belly butt and thighs! He did all the actions with his ball and everything I could not help but laugh my head off needles to say I did not excercise my best last night it was too comical.

Dad thats one hell of a big truck!

Amberle and I went to West Jordan to Hales theatre I know people I sat through a musical! We went to into the woods it was actually pretty darn good! Some of the songs were a little long and it was like 3 hours or so but it was good all of the stores had 50 percent off sales so I did get some Christmas and T-Bone birthday shopping done. So while I was away Nate went and got part of his Christmas off layaway at larsens a new chain saw. The smile as he uses it he even asks if I can hear him use it what a crack up. Him and T-Bone spent the day and while at Larsens Ace Hardware T-bone got a new big truck cause dad caved! After they got to the truck and on their way home Treyson grabbed Nates face and said Dad thats one hell of a big truck. What a kid I know.
