Baby Carter had a little fever today


Brandon's Mom and Dad came to see us and brought Kaison. I was so glad to see Kai. I am with him all day long and being away from him the past two days has been hard. I really miss him. It also gave Kai a chance to be close to Carter and not have Peyton hogging him. She was so excited yesterday and didn't want to share him. She held him almost the while time she was at the hospital yesterday. While they were visiting we discovered Carter had a little fever today. They had to take him out of our room and put a little iv in his hand to do some blood work and find out what is going on. I had a little melt down and had a good cry. I am a little emotional right now. I just want to protect him and never have to see him sick or hurt. I am so excited to be able to take him home to our new house and have him in his own room. The thought of having to have him stay in the hospital longer was just so hard. I am just praying everything is okay. After they took some blood his temp came down and they brought he back to me. It was so hard to have him in the nursery even for the hour it took. I just love him so much. It is amazing how empty you feel when they are not with you.

While we were writing this post the nurse came in and told us all of his initial blood work looked normal. So I feel much better! Now grandma and grandpa just came back with Kai and Peyton so I will close for now and spend some time with my other little Angels.



Baby Carter is finally here


Today has just been amazing. We welcomed our new baby boy Carter Keanu Rasmussen into our family. He was born at 1:39 pm and was 8 lbs and 20.5 inches long. He is just a perfect little boy. It was so nice to hold him for the first time. I cant explain the feelings I have being able to feel his little face and touch his little hands. I love him so much. It is like a missing part of my heart was just restored. I feel so blessed to be able to have such a beautiful healthy angel. It is always humbling to think that this little soul just came to me from my Heavenly Father. What an amazing day for our family. I could never put into words how blessed I feel. The only thing that could ever be better is to be able to see him. That is really hard for me to hold my new child for the first time and not be able to know what they look like. I know he is beautiful because their are some things you just dont see with your eyes.

I asked my husband to post lost of pictures for my family and friends. My heart is so full right now. This has been an amazing pregnancy from the fun way we were able to tell our family we were having a baby on The Doctors, to this wonderful day. All I can say is it has been amazing!

Today we will have our baby!

The day is finally here! I am at the hospital being induced today. It is such an exciting time. I am having contractions and starting to progress. Anyone who has had a baby knows the feeling. I am excited, scared, and happy all at the same time. I am so ready to hold him and feel his little hands and feet. It is an emotional time for me. I want to be able to see him so bad but for now I will just be content to see him with my fingertips and know that someday I will get to see him with my eyes.

I am also very excited to be able to deliver him in Cedar City. This will be my first pregnancy that I have not delivered at the University of Utah. I am high risk because of my Lupus and all of the complications it brings. So it is such a blessing to have him here and be so close to home. It will be fun to bring him home to our new home. The nursery is ready and waiting for this little guy.

Brandon's parents are watching our kids today at our house. When it is time to deliver we will have them bring Peyton, and Kai so they can be here to be a part of it. The kids are so excited and ready to see him. I am almost as excited for them as I am for Brandon and I to have him here.

I am going to rest for a bit and try to relax. He will be here before we know it.
