Our cup runneth over...!

I am running a little behind on getting this posted, but our sweet little Kinsley arrived 2 weeks earlier than she was supposed too, and one week earlier than planned! We greeted her on Wednesday, May 25th, 2011 at 2:29am. She weighed 8 pounds, 3 ounces and was 21 inches long. She has the prettiest reddish brown hair and the sweetest disposition. We absolutely adore her.

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...

The little cutie pie at the hospital. She has the best little personality and sleeps very soundly.

We are so happy. We have so much love for our little girls. We are so completely blessed. Our cup runneth over. 100 times over.
