An Unbelievable Experience….

March of Dimes GiftOn Saturday May 3, 2008, My Family and Friends walked for the March for Babies.  Better known to most as the March of Dimes.  This was our 3rd consecutive year walking.  We are Team Miss Emma.  My first born, Emma, was 10 weeks early.  Miss EmmaI had preeclampsia, my kidneys were failing and my blood pressure was through the roof.  I had been on bed rest for the last 7 months.  I couldn’t lift my own laundry basket or push the grocery cart.  Emma came out screaming at the top of those tiny lungs, weighing in at 2lbs 7ozs.  She spent 6 weeks in the NICU. Emma had no major problems, no Ventilator.  Praise the Lord.  I traveled 2x a day 30 miles each way to sit with her.  It was worth every moment to have the perfect little 3 year old we have today.

Team Miss Emma raised over $1000 for the March for Babies.  I received the crystal carriage as a gift for the top family team.  Talk about bringing tears to a mother’s eyes.  I told the man who gave it to me he was going to make me cry and my mom said “I am already crying for you!”  I love my family and friends so much for supporting me in this new found cause.  They all have been super supportive, since the day I found out I was pregnant with Emma.  When we decided to have another baby, my family was super scared that we would not be so lucky with Gracie.  Our Dr with Gracie had no worries, he seen me weekly and decided to take Gracie 4 weeks early via C-section.  With my history or preeclampsia and high blood pressure, I will probably never experience natural childbirth, my Dr refuses to let me labor due to the chance of a stroke.  I must say though thanks to the research  March of Dimes funds, My Husband and I have 2 beautiful, healthy baby girls.

A Beautiful New Addition…….

Baby KennedyOn March 7, My Husband’s youngest sister brought a beautiful baby girl into the world.  Her name is Kennedy Lynn.  Now, this little wonder weighed 7 pounds and 1 whole ounce.  Perfect in every way.  This is their first baby, and I know they are going to be wonderful parents.

Our girls, Emma and Gracie have not been able to see their new cousin, since we all have been fighting colds.  Emma is just chomping at the bit to see Baby Kennedy.  If you ask Emma about her, she says, “Baby Kennedy is my new cousin, and she is going to play with me, but not until she gets bigger.  I just want to hold her for a little bit.”  So, needless to say Emma is a bit excited about this new bundle of joy, and is a little tired of experiencing Kennedy through those few Kodak moments we captured to show her! 

 

Kennedy brings the tally to 4 girls, on my husbands side of the family!  Yes, this family is huge into football, and all we can produce is girls!  I love each and every one of these little princesses, but I know my husband and father-in-law secretly hope for a little boy to come out of these pregnancies.

As for my husband and I, we are not sure if our family is complete yet, this is still a subject up for debate in our life.  I do know, if we do have another child and it is a girl, I AM DONE.  You remember the show 8 is Enough?  Well, 3 is enough here!  Whether it be 3 girls, or 2 girls and one boy.  So that subject is definately  TO BE CONTINUED!
