On December 6, 2008 @ 3:42 pm our little son was born. Bryce Thomas Wilson. He was 8lbs 11ozs. 20 1/2 inches long. He is just beautiful. I saw the doctor on friday the 5th. I was 3cm and he stripped my membranes. 2 hours later I was having contractions about 4-6 minutes apart. I called him and he sent me into the hospital to be monitered due to the fact that I was going to try a V-BAC (vaginal birth after having a c-section). They wanted to keep an eye on me because of the risk of uterine rupture. So they admitted me to the hospital and my contractions went away over night. At about 2:30 in the morning I woke up not knowing if I should just go and do the c-section or go home and wait it out. I called ben the next morning and we decided to go ahead with the c-section. I felt that if this is not what is supposed to happen then the lord will make labot start. There were 2 other women before me getting c-sections and since I wasn't in major labor I had to wait until last. Which was fine. When my turn was up they took me to the operating room and got me all ready before ben came in. Not to much longer the doctor said it was a boy and then said "there is no way we could have done a V-BAC with him." It made feel feel so good that I made the right decision to do the c-section. Who knows what problems would have accured if I would have tried a V-BAC! So we have a healthy baby boy and a big sister who adores him.
I am getting around pretty well. I am not aloud to drive for two wks or pick up anything but Bryce. When I am feeling good I forget and do to much and then I am hurting the next day. It is so hard to take it easy when there is so much to do.
So, this is the update and hopefully I can find the time to put pictures up really soon. I will post the directions to see Bryces picture on the Memorial Hopsital website.

First off Ben and I are still living apart. It is getting harder and harder. We are still trying to figure something out until Republic calls him back. He cam back in June for father's day and to celebrate Morgans Birthday. It was a fun but quick trip. I went out to visit him in August for 10 days. It was nice. I was a little bored because he still was working and Morgan was here in PA. I didn't know what to do with myself!!!
In the meantime I was working for Martin Foor and Ankle. I was a Physical Theropy Tech. Lindsey got me the job. It was great. It was only supposed to be fpr 8 weeks and turned into 4-5 months. I am greatful for mine and Ben's family for watching Morgan while I worked. The job was getting harder as I was getting bigger with this baby. So it ended at the perfect time.
I was also helping plan Lindsey's wedding and doing all the Maid of Honor stuff. The wedding was beautiful. The bride was breathtaking. They are very Happy. We are getting ready for the open house this weekend! Busy Busy!! Ben's mom had to make my dress due to my huge belly!!! It was very pretty.
Morgan is growing up so fast. I can't believe she is 2 already! She is a smarty pants and keeps me on my toes all the time. She loves being here with here Aunts, Uncles, cousins and Grandparents. She has a little attitude with the looks to go with it. I hate to say it, but she gets it from me! Ben would agree!! I think she will be a great Big Sister.
For those that do not know we are having a BOY!! We are very excited. It will be a change. Is is a mover already!! I am actually on Medicine and Bed rest for awhile. Which is hard with a 2yr old. I was having pain on Monday Oct 13th. They felt like cramps with period. I didn't think much of it until it wouldn't go away all day. So I called the doctor and they told me to go to the hospital to get checked out. Well, i was having contractions every 2-3 minutes. They weren't to bad. They checked me to make sure I wasn't dialated, which I wasn't! Thankgoodness. Tehy gave me a shot of medicine to stop the contractions, it worked, but made your heart race and made me jittery. When that started to wear off they went to give me another one, but my heart rate was still to high. They decided to give me another medicine. That really didn't help. I started having more and stronger contractions. Needless to say I had to stay over night. Andy and my dad came and gave me a blessing. I love the power of the priesthood! Iwas sent home the next day at 9:30 in the morning with medicine and bed rest. So that has been hard. I am doing well. Nothing major since. I have to remind myself to take it easy and can't do certain things. I can't believe I only have 2months left and this little man will be here. Very exciting!
I apologize for it being so long since I have posted and will put pictures up soon!!

The many blessings: Ben's work took him back like he never left. we didn't have to wait to be put on insurance, and he was eligiable for the bonus in June. It is really nice to be with family and have them help out with Morgan when I work and during this pregnancy as well.
Despite the shock and frustration at first, Ben, Morgan, and I are doing fine. It is hard being away from him but we know this is all for a reason and feel good about everything working out the way it is intended.

It has been quit and adventure for us this past week. Ben's interview was scheduled for Tuesday March 18th in Indianapolis, Indiana. HE left Sunday night to stay in a hotel in Phoenix because part of the highway was closed and he wanted to make sure we would make his plane on Monday. He checked into his flight, which was standby, and did not get on that flight. They put him on another flight to Chicago and Indianapolis. That flight was delayed due to weather in Chiocago. When it finally left and he landed in Chicago he had missed his connecting flight. It was around 11 pm and he went o see when the next flight to Indiana left. The people who could help him were gone and they wouln't be back till 3:30am. So he had to sleep in the airport till then. When that time came, he went to the desk to check on the next flight. To his surprise they said that they didn't fly to Indiana. So they put him on a flight to Philidelphia and then to Indiana. He did not get to Indiana until 1pm. Tuesday. They rescheduled his interview for Wednesday. He got a hotel and was able to rest for the interview thw next day. After the interview he was waiting for his plane back to Phoenix. He did not make that flight because it was full also. Any flight that they had would have put him into pheonix to late to make our flight onThursday to Salt Lake City. So his mom had to redo his ticket to go from Indiana to Salt Lake City. So we finally saw eachother at 2am friday morning after he got into Salt Lake. We are glad we got the job, after going thru all this.

We asked the waitress if they did anything for Birthday's and she said that they didn't. She said that she could lite a tortilla chip on fire as a candle. I said great!! So that is what I am blowing out on top of out Molten Lava Cake!! The girls and the waitress sand Happy Birthday also. The coolest thing was that when I blew our my chip we ate like half the desert and realized that the center was still cold and hard, it was supposed to be melted and warm. So we asked the waitress about it and she got us another one. So we actually got two for the price of one. Which was awesome, because that cake is AWESOME!!!!!
After dinner three of us went bowling. I haven't been bowling since I was pregnant. Which I had one of my best games then. Anyway...This is pregnant Halee doing the famous backwards bowling.
I think I got a spare on this one. Nice butt shot huh!! Sorry!

Then later I turned the speaker phone on so my mom could talk to Morgan while she was in the tub. My mom asked her how old she was. I said "can you say one" she looked at me and said "two". I kept trying to get her to say one, but she insisted that we were counting and kept saying two!!! It was pretty funny!! She cracks me up everyday, all day!! I just love her!

I was planning on making a surprise trip to Pa. When the news of my uncle came I had to move my depature up a week and a half to be there for the funeral. I ended up staying 5 weeks. I was taking pictures of my mom and dad and morgan thought she could be in the pictures too. I think this is adorable. Morgan and her Pappy!!
My parents, Morgan, and I went to Rocky Ridge Park to see the lights they have every year. Morgan enjoyed walking off the path (hope that's not a sign fo the future!! j/k). She liked the lights and cryed when she saw Santa! She was pretty tired and cold!!
Trying to get a picture with the lights!!
