Ayla and Lily

Ayla has not been too fond of Lily as of yet. She tolerates her more than anything. She usually throws a fit about me holding her the minute i start feeding her. While I was in the hospital I was nursing Lily and Ayla wanted to know what i was doing. Jord thought it would be a great learning opportunity and so he showed her and explained it to her. Well when i got home from the hospital i found her on the couch one day feeding her baby. I just had to take a picture. Also, because of some major swelling I had I was using a donut to sit on and you can see her sitting on it in the pic. She had to do it just like mommy.


The past couple of weeks have been fun spending time with my parents in Idaho. I got to see my new little niece, Tessa, for the first time. She is so tiny. She was born four days before Lily and Lily looks about a month older. She is such a cutie.

We had to make a quick trip down to Utah for some doctor appointments. Lily had her two week check and the doctor said is diagnosis was "perfect". Then i had my appointment to have things checked out. The doctor said that things looked good and I possibly may not need to have surgery. My sutures had come out of my episiotomy and she had never had that happen to her before so she was not quite sure what to do about it. It was a very painful week though. So now i just have to meet with the general surgeon next week for my hernia. We will see how things go from there.

Lily May

Well it has been awhile since Lily was born. I have been spending time in Idaho with my parents while I got better from some post delivery issues. After 12 hours of labor i ended up with a hematoma that was excruciatingly painful. Of course, my epidural had started wearing off right before i had to push and then had no numbing when the hematoma occurred. I had been in labor for 11-1/2 hours and only dilated to a 5. They were worried about having to do a repeat C-section because she was showing signs of possible distress. Luckily, I dilated from a 5 to a 10 in 30 minutes because the little girl had decided to wrap the cord around her neck three times. I am so glad that things turned out okay. I guess i will just have to be wary about cord issues with future pregnancies. It seems like a recurring theme for me.

Lily May is here... and she's pissed!

Ok, so she's not pissed. Actually she's super cute and sweet. We've been getting a lot of calls from everyone wanting to see pictures of her so I wanted to come and post them. When Jenn is feeling better she'll hop on and give her play-by-play from yesterday.

In the meantime here is my play-by-play... Jenn got prego back in February and now Lily is here.

Happy Halloween!

So Ayla was tinkerbell this year. I had bought her an outfit two sizes big and it was still too small. Luckily my sister-in-law happened to have one from her girls. She got so many compliments last night. I took her over to see her Grandma Olsen first and then met Jord at home. I had not heard that our ward was doing a trunk-or-treat, but when we got home our neighbor asked if we were going. It was already 6 and had started at 5:30. We hurried over and hit a 5 or 6 cars that were still handing candy out. She even got to see her friend Taylor (who was not dressed up because she had just gotten her tonsils out that day). Then Jord took her around the block while I went home. Walking was just not very comfortable yesterday. When she got back she was so excited because her pumpkin had "lots of candy in it." So here are the pics. Enjoy.
