Introducing Baby Levi

I had my last Dr. appointment this past Thursday the 23rd. At my apt. my Dr. asked if I'd like to be induced later that day. I called Jevan (who was at home in West Point) and told him our options, thursday or monday to be induced or maybe going on my own over the weekend. My dr said he'd call when labor and delivery could take us.
The hospital called me at 2 pm and asked if i could be there by 2:30. I called Jevan who had just started his shift 5 minutes before, and asked him to leave and come up to logan so we could have this baby. I drove myself in and met my parents there so they could take Jade.
By 3 I had the paper work done and they were ready to get me going. By 3:30 I was all hooked up and started into labor. Jevan arrived shortly after. The Dr. came in and broke my water, a while later I got an epideral, and at 7 they called the Dr. He was there by 7:15 and I was allowed to start pushing, Levi Jevan was born at 7:37 pm. He weighed 7.5 lbs and was 19.5 inches long. He has lots of dark hair. We stayed in the hospital till friday night. I was relieved to get out. I was going crazy just sitting there. Honestly I hardly feel like i just had a baby. I know they tell you to take it easy after, but I went and hung out with some of my sisters that night and the next day went to a dinner before the RS broadcast. Then I went to dinner with my hubby and his brother. Don't worry I kept strangers at a distance from our new wookie.
We stayed at Jevan's parents house till Monday night, we had a Dr. check up for Levi on Monday. They had to check him for Jaundice again. His test came back great.
Jade loves our new baby, she is always asking to snuggle, kiss and hold him. I ask him what our baby's name is and she says "wahhaaa".

Please Read and help if you can....

Jevan's cousin was recently involved in an accident with a power line and was badly injured. He was cutting down a tree while in a man basket and a limb fell on an electrical wire. Mark grabbed the limb and could not let go. His father-in-law grabbed him and received a bad shock and couldn't help Mark.
He was rushed to the Hospital in Heber where they were able to restart his heart but he still wasn't breathing. He was then life-flighted to the University hospital.
They've been running tests and doing all they can to figure out the extent of the damage. He will not work again and his wife Jamie cannot work right now, they also have 2 small children.
If you would like to help Mark and Jamie Padigimus, there are accounts set up at Mountain America and Wells Fargo in Mark's name. Any amount, no matter how small, would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your prayers and support.

A bit of September

My little sister Heidi got married, the 10th of September. Even tho this baby is due soon I was able to get pretty involved. She asked me to do her cake and also her hair and then my mom and I decorate weddings so we took up that task also. Here is the Bride and my mom at the luncheon. Hawiian Haystacks! Yum!
Jade sure loved seeing all her cousins and playing with her daddy!
Here is the top of the cake, her colors were orange, pink, yellow, and purple. The cake was three layers, 2 were rice crispys and the layer they cut was german chocolate. The frosting was vanilla, almond buttercream and then my homemade fondant. It turned out pretty good.

Here is a shot of our new house in West Point. We sure are loving it. I will have to post more pics when I finally get everything in order. Our baby is due in 9 days so hopefully I can get it all done before then. I can't wait to meet this little guy. I sure am ready to be done being pregnant. I hope Jade can adjust to this new baby quickly and happily.
