Welcome to the Family Amelia



Amelia Rose made her debut on her due date, Thursday, June 24 at 6:15 pm. Labor was horrible but awesome (as all unmedicated ones are) and worth every second.

I had the most awesome nurse midwife ever who made the labor more bearable. I highly recommend Laurie Hansen to anyone who lives in Southern Utah. She let me ski, we always talked biking or skiing at my prenatals (depending on the season). My only complaint is she told me not to run for 6 weeks. I just laughed at her and told her I would wait 2.

She was born healthy and weighed in at 7 lbs 2 oz and was 19 inches long.


She had a full head of dark hair and was perfect.

We did have to stay an extra day at the hospital due to her being Coombs positive and being more susceptible to jaundice. She spent a day with a bili blanket and was able to come home on Saturday.

The kids all love her And I love having her to hold in my arms instead of in my belly.



Welcome the family Amelia!
