The joy of Motherhood! Well I don't know about the rest of you mothers out there but I'm ready for summer to be here. Having sick kids is NO fun, ALL THREE of my kids are sick. It started Monday when I took Baby Ridge to Banner Desert to have him checked out, the poor thing has RSV. Because he is only 6 weeks old they admitted him oh fun, NOT! They had the little guy on breathing treatments all night. They let us go home the next day where we have to continue them. When I got home my Rylee and Crew were both running fevers and coughing and didn't look good. So needless to say we have a fun time around our house. I hope they all will get feeling better really fast!

Poor Baby Ridge, I'm so sorry!

And Rylee so sick.

This is Crew after every feeding, a HUGE mess!
If you don't know Crew he LOVES food and
will eat anything and everything!

Crew is now in a twin bed, what a BIG boy!
He is going to be 15 months in a couple of
days. I can't believe how fast time flies by.
It is SO CRAZY !!!

Being a mom of three sure has it's ups and downs but I wouldn't change it for anything. I love my kids so much and feel so blessed to have them part of my life! I am grateful for a good husband who helps out a ton which has made life so much easier. I'm am so thankful for there heath and that Ridge is home and doing really good. He sure puts a smile on my face every time I look at him, he is a sweet baby! We have a big helper in our family and that big helper is Rylee. She loves to help with both Crew and Ridge. Last night she even picked up Ridge because he was crying she said. SCARE ME TO DEATH! I told her she could never pick up a baby with out a mommy being around to help her. I love her so much and do appreciate her helping me by getting me diapers and wipes, she is a huge help! Thanks Rylee for being a great big sister!!! We took Crew to the Dr. yesterday and the poor guy has double ear infections again, I feel so bad for him. He is a little happier today thanks for meds. they do wonders. Well life at the Mortensen's is great. Thanks for everyones love and support!

I guess you can say we love the hospital, because we are back! We had to take Ridge to the Dr. yesterday for his check up and the Dr. thought he looked really JAUNDICE! We had to get his blood drawn to see what his levels were. When we left the hospital his level were 7.5 the next day they were 14.6 and last night when we got the hospital they were up to 17. So we get to watch our BUNDLE OF JOY cook under the lights! We hope we don't have to be here long so can enjoy him at home. We sure do LOVE this little boy!!!

Ridge get a sweet sun tan!
These are the lights doing the job!

Home Sweet Home!

We are finally home after living in the hospital for two weeks. I went in the hospital Jan. 6th because I was having strong contractions, not fun. Long story short they admitted me and put an Iv in and gave me magnesium sulfate to stop the labor and put me on bed rest. If you never been on mag. it is not fun at all and is HORRIBLE. Anyways they finally did they second Amino to check to see if his lungs were developed and they were. We are so blessed to bring a BEAUTIFUL BABY into this world. Ridge Tyler Mortensen was born Sat. Jan. 17th @ 11:02 am weighing 8 pounds 12 ounces and 20 1/2 inches long. He was born 4 weeks early and he got to come home with us healthy and strong. We love him so much and are so Thankful to our Heavenly Father for sending such a sweet spirit. I want to Thank my Family and Friends that helped us through this rough time, we couldn't have done it without you. I am so happy to be home and be with my kids, I have missed them so much. Life is great when you have been blessed with a Beautiful Family!
