A beautiful angel arrived in our lives yesterday!

Meet Kaylee Mae Sikes

Look how small she is compared to the size of my hand.

Welcome to the world Kaylee Mae Sikes! She arrived into our lives at 1:21AM 4/27/2010. She was 6 lbs 9 oz, 19 3/4 inches long and really skinny. She is 5 weeks early so she is in the Special Care Nursery at St Luke's.

This is a much different experience than when darling Sophia was born. She was in my room, but Kaylee has to stay in the Special Care Nursery until she is a little stronger. I was on bedrest and had a major incident which caused us to go to the ER. Since she was almost 35 weeks, the OB decided not to stop the contractions and other issues and have her join our family early via emergency C-section. All in all it was a very rough day for me, but it was all worth it in the end for me to have this beautiful angel join our family. I can't wait to hold her again soon in the Special Care Unit.
