Anden's 1st Christmas!

Anden had such a big 1st Christmas. He got all kinds of toys, clothes, and money! He was the best christmas present aubrey and I could have asked for. We had so much fun taking him to christmas dinners and showing him off to our families:) I hated that I didn't get to put his picture in the paper for baby's first christmas, but I did not know about it until I read the paper lol His birth announcement should come out soon:) I hope everyone had a BIG christmas and I cannot wait to see what this new year has to bring us:) Love to all and Happy Holidays!

loove that little mad face :o)

Daddys little sports star:)

It has been pretty busy in the green household here lately, of course, everyone who has a baby or kids knows you just do not have enough time in the day! I really didn't understand this or pay to much attention to that fact until I had anden. You really wake up and before you know it it is time for bed again! I just love motherhood. There isn't anything in the world that compares to it. Aubrey and I have so much love in our hearts for each other and Anden that we are just constanty smiling and staring at him lol Here are some updated photos of our little man. He lost 5 oz at the hospital and weighed 6 lbs and 6 oz when we came home. Since then he has gained 6 oz and now weighs 6 lbs 12 oz. Since my last post he has had his first sponge bath, his first thanksgiving, his first trip to the hospital( will explain later), his belly button clamp has came off, had his first visit to nana and granna's house, his first tub bath, his first snow( even though he didn't get to go outside in it:o), and today his first time going to church. I was kinda hesitant about taking him to church but we really needed to go and get back on track again. He did really good and luckily nobody touched him they just looked and aww'd lol I am going to post more pictures and some hospital pictures soon too . Now, for the explanation for the hospital trip. When Anden was born, he was born with a hemotoma on his head. The doctors at Vanderbilt said it was from where the nurse put the fetal monitor on this head and it busted a blood vessel. I was so mad when I found this out but there is no reason to point blame, it is over with and Anden is okay but it still makes you mad when your baby is hurt. Well back to the point. He was born with it and it was quite large. Dr. chandler his pediatrician( whom I LOVE) stayed with Anden late into the night watching him at the hospital when most doctors wouldn't have. He even called a neurologist to come take a look at it. what a hematoma is is a collection of blood on top of the skull. Its between the skull and the skin. Thank God it had not crossed any suture lines and was trapped where no blood could seap through. I am still thanking God for that. Well dr. chandler referred us to Dr. Chung at Vanderbilt Children's hospital thursday and it was only supposed to be a consultation. We get there and they do ultrasounds and a brain scan just to be sure of everything. Of course I was a complete basket case the whole time they was doing ultrasounds on him. We go back upstairs after to see the doctor again and he tell us everything is fine and that he wants to go ahead and drain it that day! I start bawling and the doctor goes, "You want me to wait?" lol I said No because I know it needed it done. He told us that if it was half the size we would just leave it alone and let the body reabsorb it but with it being so big he was afraid it would bust. So they take Anden back and I just fell into aubreys arms crying like I have never cried before. Its the worst feeling in the whole entire world to see your baby hurt and there isn't anything you can do about it. It took probably 5 minutes ( they numbed it first) and it was done and anden's head look so much better! He was just looking around and as soon as I held him he was much calmer. I am so glad I do not have to worry about that anymore! He is the best baby he eats good and sleeps good and I just love him so much. I finally feel like I have a purpose and its to take care of him. He depends on me and its the greatest feeling:) Well, I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving and I hope everyone is super excited about christmas being right around the corner! I know I am!!

Daddy taking anden to the nursery after he was born:)

I just wanted to write this post to let everyone know that baby anden is here! He weighed 6 lbs and 11.4 oz and was 20.5 inches long. He was born November 21, 2009 at 3:08 p.m. My water broke friday night around midnight. We rushed down to MTMC and got admitted. I was in labor for 15 hours! I was very lucky that I did not have much pain at all. When I was dilated to 4 is when I recieved my epidural. It worked great at first but then stopped working so they had to end up giving me a spinal block as well. Around 2:30 p.m. I was dilated to an 8 and the nurse told me whenever you start to feel alot of pressure or the urge to push have someone come get me. It was about 30 minutes later I started to feel lots of pressure and had my mom go get the nurse. She checked me and sure enough it was time for anden to be born! I was really sick to my stomach from the epidural so as I was fixing to start pushing I got sick! This is actually a funny part because me getting sick is what got anden to crown LOL I pushed 3 or 4 times and then anden was born! The delivery was absolutely perfect. I had no pain and didn't have to push long at all. When I seen the doctor holding anden and hearing his little cry it all became so real to me. I mean I know I have been pregnant for 9 months and felt him kick inside me and watch him grow but seeing him for the first time and the doctor placing him on my belly for me to hold is when it became so real that I was finally a mom. The room was filled with happy tears and aubrey cut the cord. I am so proud of him. He has done so great with him and he is so protective of him! He is an awesome daddy. After the delivery it started to go down hill. They transferred me to a regular room and we was getting everything situated when I started bleeding really bad. The nurse came in and started pressing on my belly to help me pass the blood clots and the get my uterus to start to harden back up. When this happened I started hemmorhaging and passing bloog clots left and right. I do not remember much of what happened because I was in and out of it from loosing so much blood, but I do remember being in so much pain. They couldn't get the bleeding to stop so they had to take me back tolabor and delivery to hook me back up to patassum( sp?) to get my uterus to start contracting again. After that I became stable and everything seemed to be good until I learned about Anden. Where he didn't have much room to grow in my belly and he flipped so early he had a bad bruise on the back of his head that was filled with blood. Thank God its on top of his skull instead of inside. His pediatrician said that it will go down in time and it will not effect any development. Until then we have tobe very careful with his head and to not let a whole bunch of people hold him and pass him around because it can cause soreness to him. Other than that he is perfect in every way! He is such a good baby so far! He sleeps good, eats good, and never cries unless he is hungry or wants changed. I just love him so much and it is so true that your heart is just bursting with unconditional love for your baby. Just keep him in your prayers please. We want a fast recovery for him! here are a few pictures and of course I will post more soon!
