I'm an Aunt!!!! Emery Kate is here....

My little niece Emery Kathryn Stone was born Sept 22, 2006. She weighs a whopping 1 lb. 9 oz. and is 12.5 inches long. She is 3 mos. premature, born at 28 wks-- so she is in the NICU at UK Medical Center in Lexington, KY. She's a little peanut, but a fighter none the less. Thank you for everyone's prayers. Please keep them coming Miss Emery has a bit of growing to do. Mom and baby are doing fantastic! Miss Emery is 100% breathing on her own, no oxygen needed. That's a miracle too. Everything about Emery is a miracle. Thank you Jesus for bringing her to us safely. Of course she'll be in the hospital for a little while until she gets a wee bit older. For now, she's thriving in the NICU. No setbacks whatsoever. We're so excited for Brooke and Michael. Congrat's Mommy and Daddy. Isn't Emery a little cutie patootie! I think she's just perfect. She's got charming good looks, just like her Aunt Heather. (wink)

Heather, I've been checking your blog every few hours for news on your little niece. I'm so glad she and her mommy are doing so well! It's great she is breathing without assistance! She is small for 28 weeks, isn't she? I'll pray that she'll grow quickly and have NO complications.

She's sweet! Jennifer emailed me pictures. She was almost born on my birthday--Sept. 21st.

We sent Brooke a card because we didn't know if she could have visitors. Plus, I'm always around germy 7th graders, and I'm afraid I'll be too germy to visit.

Hi Heather! Is there anything that Brooke and Michael need right now (other than prayer, of course)? I doubt Emery can use anything on the registry yet?
