Stina is coming home today!!

Stina gets to come home today!! She is doing SO much better. I will fill in some of the gaps later, but she had to stay in the NICU because they were treating her for pneumonia and jaundice. It will be SO nice to have her home where we can hold her! and not have to go back and forth to the hospital anymore!!
Here are a few pictures from the week!

Stina Ellen Has Arrived

Stina Ellen was born today at 4:45 am. She was 6 lbs 4 oz and 19 3/4". Jessi is doing great. Luckly, after being induced for 2 1/2 days, she only had to push thru 4 contraction cycles and out she came, so the wait was well worth it. Stina is currently in the NICU being monitor and receiving some oxygen. Her breathing rate has been a little fast which is most likely caused by some residual fluid in the lungs. They will keep her there for the next 48 hours.
Thanks to everyone for your prayers and encouragement. We really appreciate it.

Lars is walking!!!

Lars has been walking while holding onto someone or something for at least a month now, but recently he has decided to do it on his own! He took his first steps (without help) about 2 weeks ago. Now he is walking by himself a lot! He will just stand up and go for it. Here are a couple videos of Lars showing off his walking skills!! :)

Corn on the cob!

Lars loves to eat corn on the cob! We have given it to him twice now. The first time we tried cutting the corn off and giving it to him, he wanted nothing to do with it, he wanted the whole thing! Now we have to give him his own ear of corn.
