Baby Yerke is here

Baby Yerke was born healthy on 9/30/09 at 5:56 pm weighing 8 pounds and 10 ounces and 21 inches long. And once again he had to be difficult and hold his breath and buy himself a NICU stay. Don't worry he is going to be fine. Just trying to scare us.

Pregnancy in photos

Here is a running list of Photos showing the pregnancy in various stages of joy and duress.

This is Sarah sporting the kid at somewhere around 7 weeks. As you can see I was not back from Utah yet and didn't actually even know that she was pregnant yet.

This is her at 19 weeks and may people at this time were either jealous or don't beleive that she is pregnant. I guess it pays to be 6'3'' and still growing

Okay so now I am starting to think that she is pregnant at 26 weeks. The good thing is that she is not puking after every meal or when I do something mildly gross. Oh the happy days.

Thats right strut your stuff and show us what you got in there at 32 weeks

Oh 38 weeks and the countdown begins. I often find her walking around the house in this exact pose. I hear that it helps

Growth Spurt & Surgery

Craig had surgery on his shoulder about 3 weeks ago. He can count 3 times he has majorly dislocated it since he was 16, thank you trampolines. So he finally decided it was time to tighten up some tendons. The doctors found a little more damage than just some loose tendons however. They had to stitch his labrum back on too. So with the labrum stitched back on and the capsule tightened it should be back to normal after a 6 month recovery. The picture below was taken a few hours after he got home. He looks happy because his entire right arm is still numb. I didn't take a picture of him writhing in pain after the nerve block wore off. Craig has become quite ambidextrious. Look at him play the wii with his left hand! That was probably the first thing he learned.
This is me at 32 weeks. I've experienced a growth spurt in the belly over the past month. And the last time I was at the doctor's office I made the nurse measure how tall I am too. Growing up we would measure our height every 6 months. I haven't lived at home for quite a while. I must have had a growth spurt sometime between now and then because I'm now officially 6'3"! I may have been that tall for a while but now it's official.

Third Trimester Ultrasound

These first two are the 3D of the face. He was being really difficult and not wanting to show us a whole lot. The pics aren't the greatest because he was wrapped up in the umbilical cord which created a lot of artifact.

This Photo to the left is a 3D image of the little guys right foot. As you can see he has 5 toes.

This last photo is a side profile with the normal ultrasound. Nice little round nose and connected lips, that all that matters right.

Graduation #1 Done

So Craig is officially graduated from Quinnipiac University despite the un-celebratory, un-graduated mood that the day held. That could be because Craig and all of his classmates still had to go to work the next day. They still have to get through the next two months of class, and they still have to make it through the PANCE (Physicians Assistant National Certification Exam). And that exam doesn't even come until after Graduation #2 on August 8th. They make grad school so complicated.

A Graduation Present

Hey Craig, what did you find in the washing machine?

Oh it's a wii!

Congratulations on graduating!...even though it's not quite over. At least now you'll have something else to do besides study...and recover from shoulder surgery. Hopefully this will be good at home physical therapy.

Oh he's just so dang cute when he's surprised, isn't he?
