We got a call early this morning from my father-in-law letting us know that my little niece was born early this morning. Apparently she was breech so my sister-in-law ended up having to have a c-section. Both mom and baby are doing great. Little Mikayla weighed in at 9 pounds, 9 ounces and is 18 inches long. Apparently we just aren’t going to have any small babies on that side of the family. We’re still anxiously awaiting pictures of the baby, but letting them all get a little sleep before we bug them too much.
As my little girl kicks around in my tummy, I can think of nothing to be more thankful for this Thanksgiving than new life. Each baby that comes into this world is such an amazing miracle. I have anothe niece due next month and I can’t wait to meet her as well. Our family has been truly blessed this year.
