Emberlyn's forst Dr. Appt!

It was Emberlyn's first dr. appt today! She is 20 inches long and weighs 8lbs 5 oz. She was 7 lbs. 7 ozs. when she was born and was 7 lbs. even when we eft the hospital so she has gained a whole 1 lb and5 oz! I am so proud!!!

They pricked her little foot to take a blood sample. She was so mad!! She was crying and kicking so hard! The nurse couldn't believe how strong her little kicks were!!!

Thats my girl! You make her mad and she'll let you know!!!! :) Just like her mommy and Daddy! Overall her appt. went really well! She is growing and looks so good!

I really like the Dr. she is going to. His name is Dr. Adams ad he is the dr that saw Emberlyn in the hospital. He works at Utah Valley Pedrictics in Provo and their office is so nice and all the nurses are way nice too! their reminder cards are actual stickers you can stick on you calendar! I have never seen that before and I think it is so clever. Jeffers told me a lot of places do it though lol!

The past almost 3 weeks have gone pretty good! My pain is basically all gone and breastfeedingis going WAY good. Still VERY sore but it is getting better! Jeffers sister let me borrow her pump and it actually worked for me! I am so happy. We are trying it out tonight to see if Emberlyn will take to a bottle okay. I hope she does! She hasen't hd any confusion on her pacifier and my breast so I hope it goes smoothy indroducing her to a bottle!

Everything is going good so I thought I would just put up an update!!

Love you all!!!

Emberlyn Torrey Nilsson is finally here!!!

Emberlyn Torrey Nilsson was born on June 30th, 2008 at 9:56 am. They induced me at around 9:30 the night before. Jeffers, my Mom, and Lexie were there with me the whole night!!! Lexie and my mom didn't sleep at all!!! Jeffers stayed with me the whole time and he did such a good job at coaching me and helping me! I'm so proud! He is such a good dad!! When she was born she had an irregular heart beat so they had the nicu nurses in the room when she was born to check her out, they said she was fine but later that night the nurse could still hear the irregular heartbeat so she had the Dr call in the EKG man and they did an EKG, it all came back normal, the Dr. said he can hear a little heart murmur but nothing to be concerned about! So that is a relief!! She is a perfect littel healthy baby! It was an amazing experience and I have the cuteset baby to show for it! :) We came home yesterday and it feels nice to be back home! Emberlyn makes some of the cutest faces! It is so adorable! She now has this thing where she just sprawls out when she is sleeping with her hands above her head!! It is adorable! I'm not sure who she looks like. Some people say me, and others say Jeffers so we'll see how much she changes!!! I am feeling good (tired but good!) and if anyone wants to come visit you are more than welsoe to come whenever you want!!! Emberlyn would love to meet all of he family!! I love you all and can't wait for her to meet everyone!!! I wanna say thanks you to my Mom, she was there with me the whole time! She is such a huge help! Thanks Mom I love you!
