1: Thank you for sharing our special day with us!
2: Brielle Kate Alexander | On Feb 8 2011 My doctor had me go over to the hospital for a non-stress test and the test showed Ellie's heart rate was dipping so they decided to start my labor. About 15 hours later you came out with the cord wrapped around your neck, but besides that you were perfect and so beautiful. You weight 7 lbs 15 oz. You were born at 11:29am at the Utah Valley Hospital!
4: First week home! | The first night we got home I expected to be up all night with no sleep, but you slept all night long, the next morning I tried to wake you up, but you would not wake up, later in the day I noticed you were having a hard time breathing so I took you to the Doctor's and he put you back in the hospital, you were there for two days and then we got to home. But they send you home with lights and you had to be under lights for 4 days. Your sister's are so in love with you, they can't get enough of you.
6: Two week photoshoot
8: 2-5 weeks old | Shortly after we got you home from the hospital you were put back in. I took you to the Doctor and told him that you would stop breathing when I would feed you, he told me that some babies just do that and that you will grow out of it, I left the doctors office so upset. Later that night you stopped breathing 12 different times in the middle of the night. | The next day you stopped breathing but this time you were not coming back, we rushed you to the doctors and they admitted you back into the hospital. When we got to the hospital they ran some test and found out that you had RSV. You stopped breathing a lot at the hospital they had to revive you a couple of times. It was by far the scariest thing watching you. After two weeks of being at Utah Valley hospital the Doctors came into your room and said they do not how to help you so they sent you by ambulance up to Primary Children Hospital. We were there for two days and they figured out that your nose airways were so small and your throat had a lot of scar tissue from acid reflex. They said basically you just have to grow for this problem to stop. I hated every minute of being in the hospital, it was so sad to watch you get suctioned and poke with needles all day long.
10: ONE MONTH OLD | We are so in love with you! Addi and your Mom are always wanting to hold you and kiss you. You are starting to lift your head up but it comes crashing down pretty quick. You wake up about every 2-3 hours to sleep. The only time we can get you to smile is right when you wake up in the morning. We love you!
12: Two Months Old | Yay! We are starting to get on a schedule this month! Sleep is starting to become apart of your parents life again. You are finally starting to feel better and you a the happiest little baby girl. You get about a thousand kisses from your family everyday!

16: Four Months | You are getting cuter and cuter everyday. You can roll over onto your belly but then you have no idea how to get back over so you just cry and we come to your rescue! | Your definatly a mama's girl. You cry anytime I put you down or if anybody try's to hold you...Even Dad. I don't get much done around the house, but that's okay because I love that you only want me right now. You are still sleeping good, but you are growing and need to eat more so you do wake up a couple of times a night to eat.
