As I mentioned before my parents and Ammon's mom were able to meet Kent right after the birth, but Kent also had the opportunity to meet many other friends and family over the following week.

Kent and cousin Cade (Brett's little boy)
As some of you know, my family tends to be love technology and the conveniences that it provides. After the birth of Kent it was particularly nice because our family could meet little Kent through video chat.

Aunt Angie and Uncle Jason
If any of you would like to video chat just let us know, we would love to.
On Thursday night at 8:04 we welcomed our little bundle of joy, Kent Ammon Mills, into our lives. He weighed 8 lbs 5 oz and was 21 inches long. Grandma and Grandpa Udy and Grandma Mills were both there with Ammon and I to welcome him into the world. Here are some of his first pics.
We absolutely love his bright, big eyes.

He loves to stretch out, but also loves to be cuddled tight.
Okay so this should be the last picture I post of my belly, feel free to totally bypass this post, I mostly post the pictures for my mom and dad so they don't feel left out all the way up in Washington. The doctor is going to induce me either Thursday or Friday of this week before our little guy gets too big. At the last appointment she estimated he weighed 7 lbs 12 oz, although the screen read over 8 lbs. I think she was just making me feel better.
On Saturday Ammon and I had the opportunity, along with thousands and thousands of other people, to attend the air show at Hill Air Force Base. Now I will start by stating that these sort of events don't intrigue me much, it was more Brett's thing growing up. But since I love my husband and was interested in where he goes to work everyday I decided we should go. First we waited in a line of cars to even get on base for approximately 15 minutes, then once on base noticed the parking lots were overflowing and people were walking from far off places. Ammon decided he would first show me the building he works in, however the road was blocked off and we were stopped by a nice officer. I asked where the closest place to park was and as soon as he saw I was pregnant, overly pregnant at this point, he turned around and let us park right behind him in a closed off lot a block from the entrance to the air show grounds. Needless to say I was very thankful we came across the man, he saved me a two mile or so walk. While at the air show we walked around looking at a bunch of planes, and again this was my brother's thing, not mine, so I cannot tell you what they even were. Some were big, some were small. My favorite was the one from the Utah State University flight department they had on display. I of course have seen it before since that is what Brett flew and instructed in at USU, but I had to show some Aggie pride and get my picture taken with it anyway.
Ammon was really into the jets, so we walked around them for a while. He really wants to fly in one one day, but we will see if that ever happens. He refused to get in a picture with one of them and just wanted to take pictures of them. Since I like pictures with people in them, I won't post any of the jets. The last and most excting part of the day was when we got to witness the Thunderbirds. By this time I was one tired lady, we had been on our feet for almost and hour and a half and took our seats on the concrete. I felt bad because I only made it through about 15 of that specific show (we watched others while walking around) before I knew it was time we headed back to the car, which was a good thing because by the time we managed to get to the car I was having contractions I almost couldn't walk through. Here is a little clip of the Thunderbirds in action.
