She’s heeeere!!

And it was a damn bumpy ride.

Birth story later, quick update right now-

Scarlet Maria was born by emergency c-section this morning after yet another placental abruption.

At 33 weeks she was 5lbs 4oz (holy smokes right??)

She is off oxygen, on room air with CPAP, her brain ultrasound showed nothing (sigh of relief), and they are hoping she can come off the CPAP tomorrow. Expected stay here for her is 3 weeks, I will most likely go home on Sunday)

I sat and held her for two and a half hours tonight, and just cannot believe how wonderful she is and how lucky I feel. There was a wonderful little boy in heaven, watching down on us today making sure his little sister made it into our arms.

We are in such love with this little girl, and feel very blessed.

Sorry for the crappy picture, but it was literally all we had at the time of the c-section.
