Everything was going so well…and then the dreaded “e” word…engorgement. Honestly, I’m writing this today to ask for your help.  I know what to do to treat this, I’ve got that covered, but I really could use your prayers today.  I feel like the weather today.  Gloomy.  Yesterday we decided that we were ready to […]

There’s just something about a Daddy and his little girl… I am so proud and honored of my husband.  Please permit me to brag on him.  Greg and I feel strongly about “mutually edifying” each other.  It’s from this scripture: Ephesians 4:20  “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others […]

Emily is 3 weeks old today and already has her first boyfriend!  It’s been so exciting to share this experience with my friend and neighbor, Roxanne.  She gave birth to her first son, Alexander Michael on Friday!  We’ve been excited together, prayed together, and cried together during our pregnancies and deliveries, now we get to […]

I’m sitting up in bed, watching Emily fall asleep tonight…in awe and amazement.  (Picture to the left is the first time I held Emily in the hospital) Tonight after her 9pm feeding I finally had some peace and quiet, just the two of us.  No family around, no visitors, just the girls staring at each other.  […]

I feel like the happiest girl in the world!  Things are going very well.  Emily is sleeping and eating well, and is the apple of her parent’s eyes.  She has her Daddy wrapped around her tiny fingers! This is the first time I’ve “logged on” to the internet since Emily arrived!  That has to be […]

More Pictures of Baby Emily!  Amanda & Emily   Sleeping Sleeping so peacefully… Check out her beautiful hands! She has lady fingers!                     Emily’s little feet in good hands – Grandma Kathy                                                                       “Mom, I’m full.”

Emily Has Arrived!!

It was the most exciting phone call I’ve ever received. At 5:47 p.m. last night, Greg called to tell me that Amanda was about to give birth to Emily… and less than an hour later, at 6:28 p.m. on Tuesday, February 21st, 2006,  Emily Kathryn entered this world… It thrills me to no end to see […]

Tomorrow is the day Emily will be born!  I went to my regular check up today and my doctor decided we should induce in the morning.  Emily just doesn’t have enough amniotic fluid around her.  I would really appreciate your prayers tomorrow as we bring her into the world!  This isn’t exactly how I imagined […]

2 centimeters down, 8 more to go!  Started to make some progress at my doctor’s appointment today!  Amazing, I never thought the day would come that I would be looking forward to these appointments and excited with the news!  It’s a total different reaction then I expected.  Even Greg is moving out of denial and […]

It’s going to be a bit longer then I thought… I had my now weekly doctor’s appointment today and she said I have a ways to go.  I’m not dialeted at all, so it will be several more weeks before Emily arrives!  I’m having several Braxton-Hicks contractions every day now.  My body is just getting […]
