To blog or not to blog

I am sitting her with a baby in my lap typing with one hand wondering if this is worth it. I love to look at others blogs but I am not sure if ours is really looked at. If I get a good response to this post I might keep it up -every couple months. I much rather be scrapbooking with my time or looking at others. So- let us know? I know that we don't update very much and that is my fault. I don't have alot to say on here, but on the phone I do!


We recently went camping over Labor Day with some friends. We had a blast and the kids had fun!

Blessing Tanner

We blessed Tanner this summer while the Davis clan was all around (Neals huge family). His brother also blessed their baby the same day. It was a great day, and so nice to be surrounded by those we love!

What's happenin' with the Davis Family

So, I know it's been a while since the last post, and I promised more postings...and...I'm REALLY sorry I lied. Will you forgive me??? Truth is we haven't hooked up internet at our new place, that really isn't that new anymore, but I will have 1 online class this upcoming semester so we'll have internet within the next couple of weeks. Anyways, life in the Davis household has been busy and very eventful...where do I start?!?! First, I've switched to full time at the IRS and we're very glad that happened. The money is great and I'm quitting Taxworks, so I'll only have 1 job now, but that will be replaced with a full time school schedule, so not a whole lot of more free time. Probably less actually. But with the new job we were able to buy Jess a new car so that she could have her freedoms. Can you believe that we've been married for 4 years and have only had 1 car the entire time? Jess has been a good sport through it all, so she got the new car. We got her a Mazda CX-9(SUV) and it is really nice. It's white and a 2008, with low miles and we like to think we got a good deal, but who knows. This last week was pretty eventful also, but more so for Hayden. We had the opportunity of going camping at Palisades State park for a family reunion with my family and we had a great time. There was swimming in the lake, eating, golfing, eating, catching up with family, eating, games, eating...did I mention eating? Seems like that is all that goes on at family reunions. Anyways, for Hayden he had the grandest time playing with all the older cousins, but during those playing times he has managed to fall more than a hundred times that has caused bruises on his head, elbows, scrapes on his knees, and much more. Then on last Sunday, we had the opportunity of blessing Tanner along with his cousin Jackson(Wayne & Carina, who live in Zimbabwe and are visiting). We had a good time and all went well for Tanner that is. Hayden that morning decided to venture off and find mommies self defense mace spray(pepper spray) and test it out(it does say on the back of the can to test periodically). We happened to find Hayden behind the couch screaming that his face was burning and saw the can of mace next to him. We quickly rushed him upstairs and used an entire bottle of soap on his face and chest to wash off the spray. After a half hour of washing and rinsing, Hayden was back to his normal self. Then later that day, my brother was using a gyro ball that is meant to increase wrist and arm strength for various sports, and while he was using the gyro ball, Hayden happened to walk by and saw how interesting it was and tried to reach for it getting hit in the arm. Where the gyro ball hit his arm it created two burn marks and some blood blisters. He is Ok now, but he looks like he has gone through hell after last weeks encounters, but he is healing very well this week being away from all the family and cousins. Anyways, Tanner is getting big and we're working tirelessly to get Hayden potty trained, but seems like every step we take forward, Hayden pulls us back two steps. He will stay motivated for a couple of days and then stop for a week. Life is good, but very busy. I really will try to update more, but don't hold me to it. I hate to lie. Pictures to come soon.

Tanner Morrison Davis

We are pleased to announce the birth of Tanner Morrison Davis. He was born on May 5, 2009 at 5:31pm. He was 7lbs. 3oz. 21 in. long. Jessica and Tanner are doing great. Jessica did an amazing job and her body was definitely ready to deliver. She went in to get checked by her doctor and her belly measured a whole centimeter more than the day before and she had dilated to a 5cm, as the day before she was only at a 4cm. Her doctor sent her to the hospital and they got some antibiotics in her for her strep b. She then started her pitocin at 1:30pm. When it came time to push she only pushed for a series of 3 contractions that only lasted about 10 mins. or less. So the actual labor only lasted about 4 hrs. She did really good and seems to be recovering good. Tanner, like Hayden, looks more like an Abel than a Davis. Maybe the next will be mine. He's cute and we're glad to have the addition to our family.

Yearly update...well here it is.

We want to apologize for our lack of updates and once we get internet service again we will be able to update it some more. In the next couple of days we should have some more updates and hopefully pictures if you're lucky. First of all, we have moved to a new location. It came up quick, but after much thinking we decided it was the best. We moved to another townhouse, but this one had one more bedroom, a garage, and a fenced yard for Hayden to play. We're really happy with our decision and it will accommodate us until we are ready to purchase a house. If you want the address or directions to our house please text or call, we'd be more than happy to have you come visit. Secondly, today we went to the doctor for Jessica and her midwife said she is dilated to 4cms and after 3 weeks of contractions she is going to deliver the baby tomorrow. It is two weeks early, but the midwife is confident everything will be fine with Tanner when he is born, but she is nervous that if she isn't at the hospital when she goes into labor, she would deliver so fast she wouldn't be able to make it to the hospital. We will show up at the hospital at 9am and she will have one last checkup, and then we will go to the hospital to start the delivery. So, hopefully within the next couple of days we will have pictures and updates of Tanner Morrison Davis.
