One last belly shot.
I ended up having to have a c-section.
My family and friends who were waiting to meet Emily!
Minus Lynn who was taking the picture!
Our doctor telling Joe the c-section went great and Emily was perfect! (they had to knock me out when the epidural did not take on one side)
Was born at 7:47pm
She was so little!! She was almost too small for her car seat! By the time we left the hospital she was down to 5Lbs 2oz.
Beginning to see a trend?
She loved to be swaddled!
Ha! I love this!
This is where our year changed. Emily's 6 month picture was taken in the hospital because she was diagnosed with infantile spasms the day before
Her little face swelled because of the steroids she took to try and stop her spasms.
Her 1st Easter. She slept through the pictures!
She did such a good job!!
Happy 1st birthday my sweet sweet girl! I can't believe how fast this year has gone by! You weigh almost 19lbs now and are just over 24in long. You wear a size 3 diaper and are in 12-18 month clothes. You are growing really fast right now! You still have very small feet and wear a size 1-2 show. Your hair is starting to grow back and I think it will be dark brown. You have become such a Mommy's girl lately and if I am not holding you you say mom over and over. You love it when daddy hold you in his lap and you face out, it puts you to sleep every time!
I am so proud of how hard you work! You have physical and occupational therapy every week. I think you like PT better though. :) It always makes you really tired. This past week you have not had any seizures or spasms!! Praise the Lord!! You act like you are feeling good too! You are smiling a lot more too!
Emily, you are my dream come true, my greatest accomplishment, and just a little grin you from lifts my spirits like nothing else can. I know that the past 6 months have been hard. I pray daily that you would be healed and I pray that one day you will be able to read this and the rest of this blog and see how much we love you along with many many other people.
Being your mom is all I have ever wanted. I am so thankful for you! I love you Emily Jean!!!
I plan on printing this blog one day and if you would like to write something to Emily for her 1st b-day I will print those comments out too! p.s. still no seizures!!!
