Here are a few pics from today. Grandama and Grandpa Jensen have been VERY excited to spend some special time with Anders before they go back home to Ohio. They were able to cuddle him a bit before he had his dinner. He really is enjoying looking around at his surroundings when he's not sleeping and seems to notice different people. He especially likes being held by daddy and always makes funny faces while he's looking around.

So, here is Anders in all his preemie glory. We took these pictures today. We left the camera in the car on accident when we first got to the hospital and unfortunately missed getting a picture of him being awake and alert. Most of the time he eats and sleeps and the few moments when he's awake he's squinting his eyes against the light and new sights. I'm sure everything is quite overwelming outside of his former comfy home....
We get to hold him whenever we visit and today I got to try giveing him a bottle.(he promptly fell asleep so I passed him back to the nurse to finish it off).
Despite his small size he is doing really well and is off all the IV's and tubes. They still have a few wires hooked up to him to moniter his viatal signs but other than that he is free of constraints. It's good to see him move around more freely.

Thank you to all who have and are praying for him and us. We feel all the care and appriciate it more than anyone could know.

I'd like to announce the birth of John Anders Jensen (goes by Anders) born Sunday June 25 at around 9:45 in the evening. He weighed 3 pounds 11 ounces and is 17 inces long.
He seems to have farily reddish hair and he looks like a little man. VERY cute. We'll have pictures up soon.
I'm doing fine despite all the surprises of this last week. It's nice to be home from the hospital and unhooked from all he wires and needles. I'll update again as things settle a bit and we get some good pictures of our little love bug.

Birthday synopsis

Yesterday was the big 30 for me. It really wasn't all that bad and I actually enjoyed the idea of moving into a new decade. The morning and early afternoon had a handful of lovely people gathered around our pool at the apartment. The evening was filled with an amazing performance at the Pantages Theatre of "Les Miserables". After the show Chris and I had a very late dinner at a restraunt called "Hollywood and Vine". It really was a fun day and I am so glad that I got to see such an amazing show.

Here are a few pictures of the beginnings of baby stuff that will be taking over our apartment. The Winnie the Pooh baby book was just too cute and to top it off it's filled with fun poems from the A.A. Milne books.
Hopefully we will have the baby nook completed within the next month and I'll post a few pictures.

O.K. so Chris and I have been saving our wedding pesos for a few choice items. Some neccessary and one or two frivolous ones.
One of the much needed items was a new couch. I loved the couches that D. and B. gave me back when they went to work at Faith Acadamy. Some years have passed since then and the couches have seen plenty of good days. We decided to upgrade and get a new comfy cozy couch to lounge on so that I can feed the baby and watch "The Dog Wisperer" when the time comes. We chose a nice bright red couch with a matching ottoman that allows me to put my swollen feet up onto. (that was the whole reason for purchasing the ottoman).
Hi Aunt H., I was able to get the picture up. I love this chair but it doesn't match our new bright red couch, which I will blog about next.

Hi Aunt H.! I know you probably are checking this blog to see the picutre of the family chair that needs a home. I'm having problems with the picture feature on blogger so I'll try tommorrow.

Here are a few pictures of our little bunchkin. It took a couple of times to actually get a picture of his face because he tends to be a bit sleepy. Luckily the very last try showed us his sweet little face. We can't wait to meet him in August! The top picture he was caught yawning.
