Like father like son...

Workin' in the yard with his grandpa and dad








Her first two weeks

Here's a few more pictures of Camryn-
Grandma Diane
Grandpa Larry

Auntie Sarah
Grandma Carma
Their first sibling pictures! Tegan's a goober.
This is probably my favorite picture (below). Tegan's nonchalant face: (doing something he knows he's not supposed to) and Camryn's reaction. hahaha
But he loves her :)


Tegans girlfriend Brynlee :)Tegan has been in a big boy bed now for about a month and he has been doing great! There was never an issue with transitioning. He sleeps well and has recently started waking up and playing quietly with toys until we come get him. I went into his room last night to turn on his monitor found him like this. haha
No surprise-

Camryn's two-week stats:
Weight: 10.3 lbs (97th percentile)
Height: 21 3/4 in (95th percentile)
Head: 75th percentile

Tegan's 18-month stats:
Weight: 29.8 lbs (slightly under the 90th percentile)
Height: 35 in (above the 97th percentile)
Head: 90th percentile

LARGE children :)

It's been a rough couple weeks. Not because of my healing or even being up at all hours of the night. It's been rough mostly because of ONE reason! 5 days after delivering Camryn, I was carrying Tegan down my stairs and slipped! My lower back hit square on the edge of a stair and it was scary! At first I checked Tegan to make sure he was ok. Besides a rug burn on his elbow he was fine. He was crying pretty bad, but only cuz I was freaking out. I thought I was fine too besides the rug burns on my elbows. So I went down the stairs and sat down with Tegan on my lap. The second I got up from sitting, I dropped to the floor in pain. There were shooting pains all up my back! I think it was a pinched nerve. Anyway, after a LONG week and a half it has finally started feeling better where I can move somewhat normally. You don't realize how much you take your back health for granted! It is nearly impossible to do your day-to-day necessities! Thanks to my mom and Mike helping out, and my friend Talia's dad's advice (a physical therapist), I was able to get through. :)

Oh and I got mastitis again. But no worries, this time I knew EXACTLY what it was VERY early on, and Mike happened to have an unused bottle of antibiotics that I started taking immediately. So no flu-like symptoms, no trip to urgent care, and no feelings of "I think I am dying".
So things are looking up around here!

She's Here!

So I know I am a little slow at posting this, but I have seriously sat down to do this 6 or 7 times, and something always comes up! Well, here she is!

Camryn Paige Justice
born March 31st, 2011 2:41pm
9 lbs 13 oz
20.7 in
Quick story-
I was scheduled to be induced the 30th at 7:30am and the hospital was super busy, thus I got pushed back til the next morning. I got the phone call to come in at 4:51am on the 31st. They started me on pitocin once I got there. Doctor broke my water at 1:15pm, took me awhile to have some strong contractions, and I finally progressed from 5cm to 9cm in about 1 minute! Got the epidural, and she was here after about 20 minutes of pushing. I had a small scare with the epidural not kicking in in time because I was progressing so fast, but luckily the anesthesiologist was able to rush back in and help me out :)



This is the story of my life with Tegan over the past two weeks. Whenever I am nursing or holding her, he wants to hit her or throw things at us. When we let him hold her he just laughs and smiles. It is so cute. I wish I had more time to give to both of them!!



Thanks Dad for capturing such great shots at the hospital!!
Who does she most look like?
