Fall Photo shoot- Done by me of Levee at Gardner Village



As most of you know, I love Gardner Village! It is a Historic group of buildings, that have now been turned into cute little shops. It is a really cute place to go shopping and to take photographs as well! Me and Levee headed over a couple weeks ago, and I did my best at taking some pictures of him, even though he was quite honory! They actually turned out REALLY cute! I must say, I was pretty proud of myself. I had gotten my new camera the day before, so I was excited to use it! Fall is the BEST time of the year, I just love it. Hoping to get back there soon for some more shopping and fun pictures. I have never been up there during Christmas, but I hear it is the best time to go check out all the fun decorations! Can't wait!

Brightons Birthday! October 16, 2009 8:36 pm Re-Vamped :)

Welcoming Baby Brighton!
He was born October 16. 2009
I just found some more pictures and wanted to edit the post :) So here it is!!
What a wonderful day this was for our Family.
The experience was so amazing, giving birth to a child is just such a miracle to me.
I don't care what the pain, the many days of bed rest, preterm labor, pain after the C-Section,
it was ALL worth it.
It was about 12:00 pm, and I had been having contractions for about 2 days and had been in preterm labor since week 28. My OB appointment was the day before, and I had made a lot of progress from the week before which was great news! At my OB appointment she told me I could go down to Labor and Delivery to be admitted and checked out, but I wasn't quite ready. I still had a ton to do at home, and I had been at the Dentist for 3 hours getting cavities filled just before my appointment. So I hadn't eaten all morning either. And I knew that If they did decide to deliver the him, that I wouldn't be able to see Levin for at least 4-5 days :-( So, home I went. I wanted to wait as long as possible to go to the hospital.
She said If I got worse, to be sure to come back. Called Micah with the good news, and let him know that tomorrow was probably going to be the day that the baby would be here, he was so excited! :) When I got home I tried to rest a little and then I started getting everything ready. Just some house cleaning, and all that fun stuff ;) Felt okay the rest of the night, just a few contractions here and there. The next day when I woke up, they were a lot worse, so I knew I would be going in for sure. I had Micah stay home from work just in case, good thing he did! At about 12:00 I headed to the Hospital, hoping today was going to be the day I meet my little guy. I got admitted and hooked up to the monitors, and my IV started.. After 4 tries. Ouch! And then the waiting game began.. She checked my Cervix and at that time I was a 3 1/2 and 80% effaced. She said that If within an hour, my cervix didn't change I would more than likely be sent home. Bummer! So, I waited and she finally came back in at 2:30 re checked me, and guess what? No change! I was pretty disapointed. So she said she would go let Dr. Ponder know what was going on, and then would come back and let me know If I was dis-charged or going to be having a baby today. I was really trying not to get my hopes up but in this case it was really hard.. So i waited again, for about 15 minutes, and she came back in with paper work in her hands, and she said "you are having a baby today! Congratulations!" What WONDERFUL, and surprising news this was to me! I started crying and she came over and hugged me :) She was so sweet. She had let me know we would probably be going in for the surgery around 6:30-7. I had then called Micah and told him to get everything together and to head over. Yay! So we waited, a little more... and more... 7:00 rolled around and the Nurse came in and let us know we had been bumped, and now it would be 8:00. This was okay with me, as I was already thankful to be having him today anyways. But Micah on the other hand, was getting way antsy! I think he was just nervous ;) Finally! 8:00! The anesthesiologist came in and had me fill out all the paper work for the spinal and we were set to go. The Nurses came in 5 min later and we were now headed to the OR! How exciting! When we got down there, they helped me up on the table and tried to put the Spinal in THREE HORRIBLE, PAINFUL times.. It hurt so bad, I kept jumping everytime. I felt so bad! I tried to hold still, but it is just such an un-comfortable feeling. Finally he got it in! And they began. At 8:36 pm, he made his appearance! Welcome baby Brighton. Micah and I both cried as soon as we heard him. I sadly, didn't get my "moment" with him right after he was born, which did make me pretty sad. I didn't get to see him, or hold him for over 20 minutes. But he was crying well, and he was a perfectly healthy 38 week gestation baby. At that moment, as any mom knows, you can finally breath a sigh of relief. Just knowing he is healthy, and you made it! What a HUGE accomplishment! I went back to my room to recover and they finally brought him in for me to hold while we were waiting to be moved up to the second floor. What a little sweet heart! I will never forget this day, it will be etched in my mind forever.

Up date :)

Well, like I had said in our first post.. A lot has changed in the past couple months. Levin and I have been staying with Ron, Kristen and Alec since mid-October. Micah and I seperated, but are trying to work things out. Right now, things aren't going the best. I got laid off from work as of last thursday, and am looking for a new job that is full time. They are keeping me only 2 days a week now, so my income was cut in less than half. Ron and Kristen are going to be selling their house so Levin and I will also be looking for some where to live by March. Things will work tout though, I am hoping for the best! :) The good thing about this is, I will get to spend more time with Levee, and our day care bill will be cut in less than half. I will keep u all up dated on the job search, wish me luck. I am not usually very Religious, but.. Keep us in your Prayers :) Love you all.
