Josie's Photoshoot

I know that most people have seen all these pictures of Josie on Laura's blog but I thought I would post some of them on my blog anyway. Sorry that I don't have anything really new and exciting. Josie is doing really well and she's even sleeping really well at night lately. Russ and I are having so much fun with our sweet little girl, we think she's the best baby ever, but we're probably a little biased.

Jaundice Josie

I took Josie to the Pediatrician for her first visit on Monday. The doctor said that she looked really yellow so she sent us to the hospital to have Josie's bilirubin levels checked. Her score was a little high so the doctor wanted us to keep her in a bilibed overnight. (It's a bed that has blue lights, which help to break down the red blood cells and get rid of jaundice) One of us had to watch her at all times to make sure she didn't remove the eye cover thing. So needless to say, I didn't get much sleep on Monday night, oh the joys of having a newborn. By the way, Russ nicknamed Josie "Jaundice Josie". He's such a sensitive and loving father.

Russ and I are really enjoying parenthood. We couldn't love Josie anymore than we do. She is so cute and she's such a good baby, we are really lucky. Here is a picture of her that I thought was cute.

Last Pregnancy Post

This is the last picture that I will be posting of my pregnant self. I am set to be induced bright and early Thursday morning, unless the baby decides to come earlier. We are so excited for our little girl to arrive, however I'm a little sad that I won't be pregnant anymore. I've really enjoyed being pregnant, I love feeling her move around inside, the whole thing is just such an amazing experience, I will miss it. Anyway... wish us luck, I'm sure we'll need it!

The North Fork of the Payette

Russell went on the river this last Saturday, with my dad and uncle Ralph. The river is an extremely difficult one, a class V +. Russ rode on the back with my uncle ralph, he doesn't have enough experience to go by himself on something that big yet. They almost flipped and Russ got a minor injury on his leg, but he had a lot of fun!
