Healthy Baby Girl!!

Great news...Emalee has been given a clear bill of health! She tipped the scales at 6lbs even at her last Drs visit. Her color is finally better. This means our little angel is considered "healthy" and doesn't have to go back to the Drs for 6 wks!!! She is doing great at home. It is amazing how she can sleep through both of her brothers playing right next to her! Jaxen is madly in love with her. When he wakes up every morning he walks around the house yelling "Baby!" until he finds her. Izak is struggling with the transition. Please keep him in your prayers (along with his mom and dad) because he is really testing his boundaries and trying to "find his place" in our new family dynamics.

On another note, today is the 7th anniversary of my Daddy's death. Although this is my least favorite day of the year, it has been a great one. The new gift of life we have been blessed with really captures a sense of my dad. Emalee's eyes are becoming more and more blue every day...just like my dad's. And God bless her, she definitely has his nose and ears! Out of all three of my children, she definitely resembles my dad the most.

It is hard to believe that she is 15 days old and I have very few pictures of her. What can I say, she's my third! More pictures soon, I promise!
