Poor baby, she hasn’t been feeling well at all this week. Thankful for a clear diagnosis, finally and that she is already feeling better!
Thanks for your prayers for this sweet little girl and her mamma.
To say the kids were excited to find out that they had a new little girl cousin is putting it mildly…
At a little before 5 a.m. after Kimberly was born, I came home and found Zayne asleep in our bed. His little head popped up and asked “Wha she had?” When I told him a little girl he smiled the biggest smile, put his head back down and fell promptly back to sleep. He also practiced saying “Kimbery” all day. 🙂
Emmalynn is now almost 15 months old! She is busy walking and trying to keep up with the other kids. She has the most wonderful smile when she chooses to share it otherwise most people get her blinking-close my eyes look, pretending she’s not there. Here are some of those rare smiles that most people don’t get to see…
Not too much of a similarity eh?
You never said you’re leaving,you never said goodbye.You were gone before I knew it,and only God knows why.A million times I’ve missed you,a million times I’ve cried.If love alone could have saved you,you never would have died.To some you are forgotten,to others just part of the past.But to me who loved and lost you,your love will always last.~Author Unknown
“For A Moment”
I saw for just a moment, your little arms and legs. The little blur they said was you, but now you’ve gone away.
I heard for just a moment,the beating of your heart. The sound that held such promise, but soon it would depart.
I dreamt for just a moment,of the day I’d hold you tight. I’d listen for your little breath, and rock you through the night.
I cried for just a moment, when they said that you had gone. I laid alone in silence, that seemed so very long.
I prayed for just a moment,that you would be reborn. Into my arms you would come and forever would be warm.
I was for just a moment, the mother of a child. Who laughed and cried and ment so much, if only for a while.
In that single moment,when I finally said farewell. I knew that we would meet again little baby for time will only tell.

It is so hard to believe that a whole year has already passed us by and Emma is now a year old. It is just amazing how quickly it passes! Most of these pictures I have not shared before, it is with mixed emotions that I share them now. The first couple of weeks after Emma’s birth is such a blur due to the complications that arose right after her birth, leaving me in surgery for eight hours and weeks to recover.
Looking back to this time we are most thankful for:
Not in any particular order! 🙂
Gotta love dessert potlucks!
Emma at about 9 1/2 month…sleeping!. She is sooo busy right now exploring that a nap seems to be a real rarity and special treat for mom!
How can it be that she is closer to being a toddler than a baby?
She is still so sweet, but very serious and doesn’t share her beautiful smiles with many people.
Tori caught her laughing and showing off her bottom two teeth!
She is always happy when Teigen is with her.
She is mobile now, scooting around on her bottom and looking like she just might crawl.
