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!

6. He mimicks you! You can stick your tongue out at him and he does it back!

7. He loves the song "Rock-a-bye baby"

8. He also loves it when mommy reads to him. He will just sit and listen and stare at the pages. His favorite book is " Llama Llama Red Pajama"

9. He has outgrew is NB clothes and now can fit in 0-3 months and some 3 months onesies:(

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!!
