July 5th 2012 at 8:17 am we welcomed our beautiful baby girl into this world. She weighed 7bls 1 oz and measured 19 1/2 inches. She started off with a bit of a bumpy start and had to admitted into the NICU for 3 1/2 very long days. Emma came out with fluid in her lungs which is called TTN (transient tachypnea newborn). Transient means its short lived and tachypnea means rapid breathing, which is due to the fluid. After some really scary hours, I was told it was nothing really serious. It was so hard to be away from her for those days. I had this vision of her birth in my mind, where I would be nursing her right away and taking a hundred pictures of her in our room, with her sister and brother, with her daddy and with me. Instead I got some precious moments of her with tubes and wires all hooked up. It really made me appreciate a healthy baby. I can't imagine having a baby in there for something more serious and for a longer period of time. We are truly blessed to have three beautiful AND healthy children.
