Aniston and catch up post!

Aniston Lauren Sims is here!!! She was born November 12, 2010. 6 pounds 8 ounces, 18 inches long! SO CUTE!!! The labor was fast. I did start having small contractions at 6 am of the 11th and they lasted all day but they weren't strong enough to go to the hospital. I was watching Aiden and Grady while Tara when to the temple. When she got back i felt like the contractions were getting a little stronger and closer together. So Tara the planner and amazing person she is told me to start writing the time down and how far apart they were. They were about 2 min apart so she said I am taking you to the hospital and if you aren't in labor no big deal but we headed off i hurried and packed a bag. because the ME being as UNprepared and UNorganized as i am i didn't have it ready yet. Then we went. I called the doc on the way and he said you can go it but i think its false labor! So i went and they checked me. i was at a 4 and 80 %. They checked me again in an hour to see if i was moving along and i was. Soooo I called jer and told him to get work off that we were having her tonight and called my mom and told her to head up north. Jer got there when i was getting the epidural and then 10 min. after the doc broke my water i was at a 10. I started to push and my mom walked in right when i was pushing! I was so glad she made it! anyways 2 or 3 pushes and she was here! She was born at 1:13 am on the 12th of November!
I got to hold her for 30 seconds maybe and they had to hurry and take her because she wasn't breathing too well. They found out she had liquid in her lungs and they needed to keep her. She was in the NICU for 5 or 6 days... NOT FUN! The first night was SO hard I didn't even have a name for her yet. And then the doc came in and told me they were treating her for pneumonia so yeah i pretty much broke down when he left and was having a hard time. She ended up not having pneumonia though so they took her off of the meds for it and just kept an eye on her cause she was still on the respirator and all that! not quite breathing on her own. She is a strong girl though and ended up breathing on her own after a couple of days. then she started eating pretty well off of me so ya!
We are all home now and happy and Korbin loves her SO much. He always brags about "his" baby! :)
Sorry this was so long but here are some pics from the 12th till now! ENJOY!

We went to Vegas for a couple of days just to get away! We stayed at Circus Circus which is a perfect place to go if you have kids cause there are alot of kid things to do in that hotel! The first day we chilled.... went to the pool, ate alot, and played carnival games! jer was determined to get korbin a prize so we ended up spending like $30.00 and all we ended up winning was a tiny little fish!!! haha oh well he loves it and it was fun! The next day we went to the pool again, met up with susan and chris and ate, then went to a show for korbin where a guy trained cats and dogs that he rescued from the animal shelter. Pretty cool for korbin! then went and watched the water show, then went to find a cng station to fill up our car before we left in the morning!
Now here is the adventure story of ours! We ended up breaking down at a gas station after driving around for like an hour just trying to find a public cng station we went to get water. We had some guy named zoltan jump our car and we made it back to the hotel by 2am! Korbin was actually being ok but then he woke up in the middle of the night and wouldnt go to back to sleep for like an hour, then some random dude knocked on our door at 8am and he was at the wrong door, then house keeping knocked on the door an hour later but werent there when we opened the door... SO LAME!!!
So that was our night of bad things happening!
Then when we got up jer went to see if the car started and was going to work while korbin and i got ready and packed and it was working fine so we were headed home. Then about 30 miles to mesquite our car just stopped working again! The gages were going all crazy then the car just stopped so we pulled over and jer figured that it was the alternator so we called a mechanic to come out and fix it... It took him 2.5 hours to get there so in the mean time Me, Jer and Korbin were sitting in the car with the windows down and doors open in 115 degree weather just waiting! We took off korbins cloths to keep him cool and drank alot of water! The only people that stopped for us were two Hispanic guys and a police officer! I thought that was kinda sad! But goes to show all the raciest people out there that Hispanic people are nicer than white people! haha anyways It ended up being the alternator and we were on our way and made it home that night! It was NOT fun and MISERABLE but just another one of those things that brings us closer together! Jer was so nice! He didnt drink much water cause he wanted to make sure korbin and i had enough! and he stood out side so korbin and i could be in the shade till we figured something out where he sat in the back! He is so nice and respectful! So that was a big thing for me that made me think that this could be alot worse and could be alot harder! I have a wonderful husband and a wonderful child who was awesome the whole time by the way! His face was bright read so sad but he was drinking water and doing fine!
Anyways im grateful we made it out of there safely and thats someone could come and help us! Blessings came out way even though i could look at it like they didnt! They did for sure!
Sorry so long but it is worth me remembering stuff like this!
I am so grateful for my husband who is trying and succeeding to be a wonderful husband and he is just amazing! Things do get hard and arent perfect but its really amazing how when we both try to do things for each other to make one another happy how happy we are as a couple! I love life right now and couldnt ask for anything more! well except to be rich but we will get there one day! :)
