Janie Wilde

So, I'm finally to the best part of making up for lost time. Jane LaRue Wilde was born December 27, 2008. She was 8 lbs. 4oz. 21 1/2in. long. Brad was sooo excited to get his extra tax break for 2008. We had a little bit of a hard time with this one. All of my kids have had jaundice to some degree. Owen was the only one that needed to have lights on him, until now. Janie had high bili levels. She was having a hard time breaking down enzymes and so she had to stay in the hospital for a couple of extra days. I had to travel back and forth to the hospital every two hours to feed her. It was not a pleasant experience, but I won't go into details. Then we got to bring her home late Jan. 1st only having to re-admit her on the 2nd into pediatric ICU. I know I should have been taking pictures of her in the hospital, but to tell the truth that was the last thing on my mind. I do now regret it. I was so lucky though to have my Dad and his wife come for a visit while all of this was happening. I hadn't seen him in a year, but was very grateful to them for watching the kids so I didn't have to worry about them. Brad and my Dad and Susie even potty trained Alex while all this was happening. YEAH!!! I got to spend at least one day with them and they got to see Janie before they had to leave. Here is the Wilde kid bunch.
She looks so much like Owen.

My Grandma also died while Janie was in the hospital. I was so upset and wished that I could've made it back home for the funeral. She was such a wonderful woman who I look up to in many ways. She was truly a western, stubborn, strong, faithful, loving,wise woman. I miss her terribly, but she's now with her sweet husband and my Mom. I was so blessed to have her as my Grandma, she taught me so much. I'm so grateful to know that Families Are Forever and that I will see them again in the life to come.

You didn't tell me about your grandma, sorry about that. I totally understand the frustration of missing the funeral, I couldn't go to my grandma's either.

Take it easy!

Sorry to hear about your Grandmother...what a blessing the gospel is in our lives to know where are loved ones are.

Rich's dad died right before Dallin was born and I knew that Dallin and Dean where together before Dallin came here! I'm sure Jane was with your mom also!
