A girl in our ward is just getting started taking portraits and she wanted to come over and get some pictures of Jolie and Bronson for her portfolio. We payed her a little sitting fee and she gave us the digital version of the pictures she took. She spent at least two hours on the whole thing, took a ton of pictures, and I think she did a good job. I'll post a couple of them here and a bunch more on our Flickr site at http://www.flickr.com/photos/benandamberly .

Bronson Owens Mecham
He was delivered today, Oct 3rd at 7:42 a.m. by C-Section. He weighed 7 pounds 3 ounces and was 19-3/4" long. He and Amberly are very healthy and hopefully will be able to come home Thursday morning. He cried a lot while he was delivered and afterwards until he was bundled up and fed. This was completely different than Jolie, but most likely because Jolie went through the trauma of being unable to be delivered normally. I'm not making excuses - he is noticably more of a whiner than Jolie was on her first day, but he is still such a sweetie and once he got comfy he was all quiet and content.
Amberly hasn't been allowed to eat solid food, and her diet has pretty much been limited to water, apple juice, jello, and chicked broth. Poor girl! Needless to say, she's quite hungry for real food. Hopefully tomorrow some time she'll be allowed to eat solid food, and she'll feel better. I hope to give a few more updates as things progress over the next few days. Please check back often!

To make it easier for family to have pictures of us, Ben set us an account at flickr.com. You can look at our pictures and order them from the site and flickr will send you a print. All you have to do is go to www.flickr.com/photos/benandamberly. Once there you can browse from 3 different folders. Mecham family, Merril family, and Our photos. If you order a picture from flickr you can pick them up at Target within an hour or have flickr mail them to you. If you have any questions ask Ben.

As for me I'm so excited to be having a boy! He's about 7 weeks away from entering into our family. Everyday Jolie asks when Bronson will be here to play with her. It will be really interesting to see her reaction to a little baby around the house. I really hope this time the c-section will be a breeze. I'm glad I don’t have to go through the hard labor this time. Scheduling the date and time of the birth will be so nice.
Ben is working hard and will hopefully be starting the construction of our new home soon. I'm so glad he took the challenge to learn a CAD drafting program to draw and design our home just the way we want it to be. Drawing plans could be the start of something great for him!
Here are some pictures on the plans Ben drew for our house. Aren't they so good? Ben surprises me with every new talent he develops. He's awesome.
Blogs are the coolest things ever!! I dont know why we didn't do this a long time ago. Especailly since we have moved away to Prescott it's been hard to keep everybody up to date with all that is going on in our lives. I mean who would't want to know all about us. We are very cool people. And Prescott is a cool place to live. Well let me get to the point on what's happenin' with us.
