Holy Crush Of the Week is right! Tim and I are lovin' the Olympics these last 2 weeks! It's not been good for us being that we have a new baby and are in desperate need of sleep but stay up 'til who knows when to watch everything we can. Anyway, I'm not going to lie, I have a major ugly-man crush on Shaun White, seriously, he is so entertaining to watch and very talented! He has been my C.O.W for 2 weeks now along with Evan Lysacek, Apollo Ono, Tim loves any and all skeleton racers, and I even have a girl crush on Kim Yu-Na(I secretly want to be her!). We've been so into everything that we've caught ourselves actually watching a ton of curling! We love how NBC gets you so connected to the atheletes with their life stories. I nearly cried when Joannie Rochette skated on Tuesday after the passing of her mother. I'm so sad that there is only 2 days left. We don't know what we will do with ourselves once they are over.

Ok so the Japanesse girl totally bugs, she wouldn't even smile when she won the silver. Seriously, it's the Olympics woman, be happy you made it this far!

He's Here!

Well, he's here and yes it's been over a week, sorry. Lex Timothy Claybaugh entered this world on Saturday, February 13th at 2:32 p.m. weighing in at 8lbs 12oz. He is healthy, big, and beautiful! My original due date was the 11th. My wonderful sister's birthday, but if you know me I'm late for everything, so why not be late giving birth to my second child? I really didn't want to be induced but by the time the Monday before I was due came around I was miserable with a headcold and all so I set up to be induced on Saturday morning.
Best decision ever! I checked in at 7am, had to be on some antibiotics for 4 hours, by 1pm I was dialated to a 5, slow progressions I know, my reason is my body just doesn't want to give the baby up, anyway, Dr. Saunders checked me at 1pm, he stayed in the room and visited with my family and by 2pm I was feeling a lot of pressure so he checked again and said we would be having a baby in 10 to 15 minutes. Well, the room wasn't ready because Saturday happened to be a busy day for Labor and delivery and that also meant that we only had the Dr. and one nurse to bring Lex here. Good thing my Mom was in the room with us to help coach and Judy gave me water to refuel! Several pushes later and Baby Lex came into the world screaming! Such a wonderful sound! I think this is the only time I've really heard Lex cry. He is such a good baby! We love him so much and are so happy he is healthy and happy. So far Hudson loves to smother him with kisses and hugs and show everyone his baby brother!
Blogger is being lame right now with me and I couldn't upload any more pictures other than the first one, so check out my sister in laws' Kim and Cami for pictures.

Happy Valentine's Day!

This is Tim, I'm secretly doing this post to wish Shelbie a Happy Valentine's Day. I know it's a few days early, but, for those of you who don't know, Shelbie is due with baby #2 today! So, I don't know if I'll have a chance to do this by the real Valentine's Day. I'm not a big fan of this holiday, but I'm definitely a huge fan of Shelbie.

Shelbie and I met first when an institute teacher at UVU tried to set us up, but it didn't work out. We were then set up on a blind date about 3 months later by my cousin Ashley Garlock. These first two pictures are from our dating days, the first was at an aquarium in Colorado where I took Shelbie to meet Cami and Brandon. The second is in California with my mom and dad. My parents have always loved Shelbie since day one, especially my mom (that's a great relief to a momma's boy like me).
Shelbie and I were married in the St. George temple on June 10th, 2006. Shelbie has been the greatest decision in my life and a day rarely passes that I think about how much she has changed me for the good. I can contribute so much of who I am to her. It doesn't seem possible at the time of marriage, but my love for Shelbie has increased so much, and, even though it might not seem possible, I imagine that it will still continue to grow.
Hudson has come into our lives and Shelbie's mother skills have really impressed me. She's been such an amazing mom that we really should have about 12 more kids, except I don't know how I'd handle that without a reality show to pay for them all!

I love you so much Shelbie and I know I'm so lucky to have you as my wife and eternal companion. Happy Valentine's Day babe! I should be scared to have another child, but not with you taking care of them... and me!
