The Newest Family Member Has Arrived!

A new teeny, tiny addition came to our family last Wednesday! My sister Rebekah gave me another little niece! She was born 6 weeks early and is hanging out in the NICU to get nice and strong before coming home. She planned her arrival just in time to see her Auntie who was coming to visit! So here she is!

Miss Kimberly Anne 
4 lbs, 17 inches
Born October 6, 2010
Meeting Kimmy in the NICU for the first time. She loved me instantly of course! ;) 
 She is so itty bitty. They put her in my arms and I couldn't believe how tiny she is. Her little head fit right in the palm of my hand.
Auntie and Kimmy. This little one holds a very special place in my heart.
 Loving her sleep.
Oh so tiny. Drinking a bottle for Daddy.

Just relaxin', enjoying her shades and dreaming of her first beach vacation!
We are very excited for Baby Kimmy's arrival to our family and would love your prayers as she continues to get stronger and stronger to come home to her Mommy and Daddy and big sisters Natalie and Jane. She is breathing on her own, holding her temperature by herself, but still needs some help with a feeding tube. She is learning to nurse and bottle feed and is getting the rest via feeding tube. I got to hold her for one of her feedings. So sweet. She can come home as soon as she can nurse or bottle feed fully. Can't wait for that day! Grow baby grow!!
