Crew's bili levels after we got home kept going up. We finally had to have home health bring out the bili bed. It was like a suitcase. I was so depressed that I could not snuggle him. He could only come out for feedings and diaper changes. So glad we only had to do it for 2 days!


Crew Justin Day was born on September 14, 2010 and 11:41pm. He weighed 7lbs 11oz and was 20 inches. Funny story. The night before we had Crew I told Justin I was done being pregnant and I was going to let the doctor know in the morning at my appt at 9:10 am that I was going over to the hospital to be admitted. I convinced Justin and myself that I could tell him my Blood Pressure had been too high (witch it hadn't) and that he should send me over :-). So this was my plan. Packed our bags that morning and headed to the hospital only 39 weeks. I get up on the beloved table to wait for the doctor to come in. Justin and I were joking around and he made me laugh, in total shock I look at Justin and say "OMG I just peed...or my water broke..hahaha I started freaking out...doctor comes in and yes my water broke, over the hospital we went. I WAS SOOO SCARED. The day was long I started at 3cm dilated and finally was a 10 at about 11pm. Started pushing at 11 thought I did amazing myself by 1130 he was coming soon! Head was out and I thought I was home FREE...No his shoulders got stuck then his elbow, this all felt like eternity and I was yelling just pull him out!!!! Crew came out and I could tell things were not right...a code blue was called people rushing in with the "crash cart" I HATE THE CRASH CART! Crew was not breathing on his own and needed to be resuscitated. Poor Justin was white as a ghost. The doctors and nurses kept trying to reassure me that he was going to be just fine. It was all so fast it feels like a blur. Justin of course went with Crew down to NICU. WOW I was not prepared for instant love and concern I had for my son. I was in tears so scared he was not going to be ok. Crew has changed my life sooo much. Justin and I feel so blessed. He has been such a good baby.


Justin loved this picture of him smiling even with an IV.

Loves his head washed.....still does, who wouldn't?

hahaha I kept saying there was no way he was going to more than 7 lbs I was scared he was going to barley weigh in at 6lbs .... yea I was a little off.

Of course we had to watch Ellen its a daily ritual.

I was so scared...the whole day and the next few weeks after :-)

Camping and Golfing at Wasatch

We went golfing and camping up in Midway at the Wasatch golf course and camp ground. We did fondue for dinner, it was SO good and SO much fun. I think that was my last camping trip for the summer though, I had to get out of the tent and PEE way too MANY times :-)

Love camping where there are electric plugs so that we can do FONDUE :)
