Precious Babies

This last week 2 very special babies were born.

On December 1st my best friend Kristina and her husband welcomed precious Hayden William to the world. He was born at only 26 weeks weighing 1lb 4 oz but he is certainly a fighter! Please say a prayer that he continues to get stronger and will eventually be able to go home. I hope to meet my "nephew" sooner rather than later.


Yesterday, December 4th, my brother-in-law and sister-in-law welcomed the adorable Holland Ava into the world. She was a healthy 7lbs 12oz and is absolutely precious. We can't wait to meet her in a few weeks. She officially makes us an Aunt and Uncle of 10. :)


These babies sure do make me smile.

I hope you all have an amazing day!

  5. Congrats and prayers are being sent to baby Hayden! My brothers and sister were premature and are now healthy adults/teenagers and you would never know they were born less that 3 pounds each. Sure they had their fair share of health issues early on, but now are great! I cant believe you are an Aunt to 10, thats AWESOME!!! :)
