Baby Chloe Update

This was Wednesday she is now off feeding tubes etc.
They are still monitoring vitals, but she's doing well.
Dee, Chloe's Grandma or Nanah
Don't know if I spelled Nanah right

Baby Chloe on Tuesday

Two very tired parents

Suzie, Chloe's other grandma
A very elated one! Got to hold her for the first time on Thursday!

Aaron the proud dad holding his baby daughter!
He's not bad at changing a diaper either which he is very excited about!

Nathan and Jarrett at the hospital!
They were just excited not to go to school for a few days
and have no homework!
They haven't seen baby yet because she's in ICU still,
but they are excited to be uncles again!

One of the fabulous nurses that have been taking care of Chloe!

Elated parents!

Baby Chloe is now off all feeding tubes and antibiotics! She likes being wrapped up like a burrito!

This is her little penguin friend that hangs out with her.
She likes binkies!

So yesterday, or Thursday Chloe looked even better. Every day she has continued to improve dramatically. She has a bit of jaundice now so they are watching that and making sure she is eating enough. They came in and did an x ray of her head yesterday (Thursday), but we haven't heard anything from the doctor yet. They also did an ultrasound. The preliminary results were that she looked okay. So hopefully everything will be okay. Her head is looking 100 % better from when she was born. She is eating good and doing all of that stuff well now. The main thing they are watching is the jaundice now. Ashley and Aaron are staying in a hotel close to the hospital so they can be up there by her. Hopefully she won't be in there too much longer. We appreciate all the prayers and all the concern that you all have shown! It's nice to have family and friends!

Baby Chloe 1 day old!

Here is the proud dad whom is doing well now that the labor is over!
He had a hard time watching Ashley and Chloe have such a hard time!
He did his coaching job well. The nurses and doctors were amazed with them both.

She's looking a lot better today!
Lots more color and more alert.
She was able to breathe on her own.

Cute isn't she?
Ashley and Chloe!
She got to feed and hold her today! Yea!
Thanks for all the prayers and trips to the temple!
She is doing better but still in ICU.

Baby Chloe

Baby Chloe has come into the world after 17 hours of labor. Ashley was awesome! She did the whole thing natural, and was pushing for 3 1/2 hours. Ashley is doing fine and baby Chloe will hopefully be fine too! She had some fetal stress and has blood up around her brain. The doctor said that they will watch her tonight. They said her color is looking better and they seem optomistic about it. Pray for her anyway. She weighed 7lbs. and 8oz. and is 20 1/2 inches long.She has lots of dark hair and she is very precious. Aaron was wonderful and he was the perfect coach and very supportive which he always is. Here are a few pictures

Nick's Birthday (The Big 49)

Nick is having a great birthday!

His favorite team is going to the Super Bowl!
How did he get that shirt?

He is eating his favorite dinner!

Pork Roast and Mashed Potatoes! YUM! YUM!

Look who dropped in for free food?
Hey! Ashley when are you having that baby?

Hey Nick! How old are you anyway?
You're looking good for your age!

He blew out his candles in one breath!

We knew he had enough for at least 3 more cakes!

Lance at Work and Chocolate Cake

Tonight Lance called me from work and wanted me to bring him the famous family chocolate cake. So I made the cake and took it over to his work, and they ate it in about 10 minutes. Nick got free Chipotle, but I didn't eat any because I had already eaten. So I will get my free Chipotle some other day. If you haven't had Chipotle you haven't lived. They are kind of like In and Out, but they just serve big burritos.

Summer Vacation 2008 Backyard Barbecue

Our trip to Utah in August 2008, we all got together at mom's house and had a barbecue. It was fun! Nick was our cook and all the girls made side dishes. We stuffed ourselves which we usually always do at a family get together. Nobody can out eat John or Doug, except maybe me. We had lots of little pooches to add to the commotion. They were very entertaining.

Typical Sunday night playing games. This one happens to be Risk.
Can Clint or Aaron beat the expert war man?
Oh Yes! Nick got beat! Another game is on!
