Welcome Aubryn Jane.

A lot of big changes have occurred since my last post almost a year ago!  On February 1, 2015 at 9:29AM we welcomed beautiful Aubryn Jane weighing 5 lbs, 12 Ounces.  It was quite the pregnancy.... it was really really easy the first 7 months.  Had just a little nausea, very little cravings, but did experience some bad headaches the first 20 weeks.  All was a typical pregnancy until 7 months in when I once again, started to experience the dreaded kidney stones!  After a couple of week long stints in the hospital, we thought they were pretty under control.  A few weeks passed in between when I had another round of stones.  Due the pain medicine I had to be on, they decided that it would be best for Aubryn if I delivered her at 37 weeks (just like Addalyn and Angelo).  The morning of delivery I was in a lot of pain and just didn't feel right about delivering that day.  My gut was right.  As soon as the pulled her out I knew something was not right.  I did not hear her cry, and the doctor was trying to compensate for her lack of breathing.  In the NICU... the nurses described her as "feisty".  One nurse said that in her 15 years as a NICU nurse, she was the feistiest baby she had ever seen!  We are going to be in for it with this one!

My sweet baby was wisked away with about 12 doctors and nurses to the NICU.  They think her lungs were not quite mature enough or that the pain medicine I had been on made her lazy in taking her on breaths.  She spent 10 days in the NICU which were just heart breaking for daddy and I.  We had to leave the hospital without her which was one of the hardest things to do.  We took turns day and night going up to the hospital and were elated on February 11th when Aubryn was finally discharged and could meet her anxious sister and brother!

Now our big girl just turned 8 weeks.  She absolutely perfect in every way!  At her one month check up she weighed in at 8 lbs, 4 ounces.  She has been a great sleeper and a wonderful eater!  We can hardly keep Angelo and Addalyn away from her.  They have been wonderful helpers and so sweet with her.  She has already lived in 2 states (Kansas/Nebraska) in her short 8 weeks.  We are so lucky to call her ours!
