There isn't a day that passes that I don't think about how lucky we are to have her here. After Emerson's "interesting" arrival, we weren't sure if we'd be lucky enough to have anohter baby. Then when we did get pregnant it was a bumpy start to say the least.....My first appointment after getting a (okay, 5) positive pregnancy test, the first doctors office I went to told me that I wasn't really pregnant....two more tests after leaving there said that I was. I scheduled another appointment with a different doctor who confirmed that we were actually pregnant. The ultrasounds didn't help with the uneasiness we had already faced. We were on miscarriage watch for the first 12 weeks of our pregnancy. Our first ultrasound didn't show a heart beat. Our second ultrasound showed a fetal pole with no caridac activity. Our third ultrasound FINALLY picked up a heartbeat but not a strong one. The tech told us that it was a good possibility that it would slow down and eventually stop....Our fourth ultrasound showed a heartbeat, still not as fast as it should be, and blood was seen in my uterus....pins and needles, pins and needles. Finally, around the 14th week, things started to turn around for us and the heartbeat picked up and became steady. Everytime and at every appointment I was brought to tears hearing her little heart beating away.
Here is our little blessing. Our cup runneth over....
This is our little family at the hospital. Emme is so proud. So are mommy and daddy too actually...

Making a one of a kind mobile for sweet little Kinsley....PRICELESS!!
And that is the story of our Happy Little Tree!

Cravings: Anything spicy really....Loving mexican food.
Aversions: The smell of raw or cooking meat has never been my friend during pregnancy.
Weight gain: 22 pounds...also right on track. Hopefully, it stays this way!
Emme's thoughts: She can't wait to meet "baby sisser"!
Here is a picture of Emme and I at 26 weeks. Everytime Jimmy grabs the camera to take a pic, Emme runs over and puts her hand on my tummy. So adorable I tell you...!
Emme and Daddy at the Polar Bear Passage. We met Nikita, a male polar bear. It was his feeding time so he was very active. Emme and Mommy on our way to visit the other animals. Emme loved the monkeys, tigers, and all of the birds we met. Mommy is almost 27 weeks pregnant in the picture.
We have also been re-decorating the girls rooms. Emme's nursery is becoming Kinsley's room. Emme is being "upgraded" to her big girl bedroom. The rooms arent complete, but we are well on our way to finished rooms!
Emerson's Big Girl Room
Here is a picture of the "before". Just furniture. Emme is trying it out of course! Emme also helped Daddy paint her own room. I had to get a shot of her with Mommy's mask on! I realized I don't have a very good picture of the "after" But you can sort of see the ballerina sheets and canopy above her bed I made for her. There are lots of really cute touches we are going to add along the way. More pictures to come on her room as well!
More updates to come!
Love, Jacki, Jimmy, Emme and baby Kinsley
