My Baby Boy Turns Two!!!!

I can't believe my little boy is two years old. I remember his birth like it was yesterday
. I had been up all night having contractions. Around 4am we arrived at the hospital and I had Wyatt at 10:03pm. It was the longest
day of my life, but it was also one of the happiest days of my life.
For Wyatt's birthday we decided to have a small party with our family. We are in the process of moving so our apartment is a mess, so we decided to have the party at Leawood Park. Grammy and Grandpa got to the park and found the picnic tables were a disaster. They cleaned the tables, sprayed for bees and picked up trash. They were awesome!!! Soon Omi and Opa arrived with Aunt Rachel. Wyatt loves his Aunt Rachel. Every time he sees her he runs up to her and gives her a great big hug. Halmoni, Great-Grandma Shirley, Uncle Shawn, Aunt Nikki and cousin Mollie came.

Shawn wascarrying a HUGE present and Nikki had their new dog, Daisy, in tow. We had a delicious lunch: Chick-fil-a, fruit and potato salad. As soon as the food came out so did the bees. After lunch the kiddos played on the playground for a while.
Then it was time for presents. Our family is so generous. Wyatt loved opening presents. My favorite part was seeing him turn to the person who got him a present and say "Thank You". (What made it even better was that he did it without being prompted.) He got a Patio Cafe from Halmoni, GrandBob, Uncle Shawn and Aunt Nikki. From Grammy and Grandpa he got a Buzz Lightyear and Woody. From Omi and Opa Wyatt got a baseball glove and ball, a spiderman blowup punching bag and some clothes. He loved everything and has been playing with it all ever since opening it.

Later that day Wyatt, Moriah, Jason and I went swimming with Rachel and Opa. It was so much fun. Then we had dinner with them. Wyatt fell asleep before 7pm. He was exhausted but he had a great day and an amazing birthday.

A Day at Clement Park

We decided to take Wyatt to the park. He had a great time and Moriah loved basking in the sun.

Wyatt enjoyed the slide but it took a little coaxing at first

Aunt Nikki, Uncle Shawn and cousin Mollie came to play with us

and so did Grammy.
As you can tell, Wyatt does not really like the swings yet.

The Best Big Brother Ever

I have decided Wyatt is the best big brother EVER. He is soooo sweet to Moriah. He is always giving her hugs and kisses. Wyatt was at the hospital when Moriah was born and he was able to see her almost immediately. The first thing he did was give her a kiss. It was one of the best moments of my life.

The next day at the hospital

Wyatt holding his little sister for the first time, with an assist from Grammy.

There's nothing better than getting a Wyatt kiss.

We put Moriah down for some tummy time and Wyatt immediately went and laid down next to her. It was so adorable.

Moriah Meets the Family

Everyone was excited to meet Moriah. Grammy and Grandpa John, Grandma Lee, Aunt Hannah and Uncle Ross, Aunt Nikki and Cousin Mollie were all at the hospital with Wyatt waiting for Moriah to make her appearance.

Moriah Rose Vansyoc

I woke up around at around 5:30 on April 13th and almost immediately had a contraction. It was strong and painful. A few minutes later I had another strong contraction. By 7:30 the contractions were 3 minutes apart and over a minute long. We decided it was time to call the doctor. By 8 we were at the hospital. My Mom, my sister, Hannah, and her husband, Ross, came to the hospital to watch Wyatt. Jason and Ross gave me a blessing. I was so nervous and excited. We were trying for a VBAC after I had a Wyatt via c-section. Around 10 I got an epidural. The pain I was feeling stopped...and so did my contractions. For about 6 hours my contractions were almost non-existent. Then, around 4, I started laying on my other side. The contractions started again and by 5:30 I was dilated to 9.5cm. At 6:25 Moriah Rose Vansyoc came into the world. She weighed 8lbs and 2oz. She was 20.5inches long. Wyatt loves his little sister so much. He is constantly giving her kisses and hugs. He is so sweet to her. I am so grateful for my wonderful husband and amazing kids.

Moriah has an amazing set of lungs

My kiddos are amazing. I love them sooooo very much.

Wyatt is so wonderful with Moriah
Being a mom is the most amazing job I have ever had. I love being able to stay home and take care of my two little angels. I am so grateful for Jason, who shows me great love and support.
