Today, I went to visit my dear friend, Jody, who delivered her third child~ and first little girl! She is such a beautiful baby, and she was blessed with loads of hair! She is a little peanut, at 5 pounds 12 ounces and 19 1/2 inches long. It was amazing holding her, and loving on her. I remember back to when Maddie was born almost 17 months ago...she was 6 pounds 9 ounces and 18 inches long. So, she wasn't much bigger than this little princess. Hard to remember how tiny they were. Jody was doing great with recovery from a C-section. She had a super Dr. that came in (on his day off) to deliver her baby. He checked in with Jody several times too, he was worried about her. Jody had blood pressure issues with it going really high. Then, the Dr. sent her a rose after the birth. Talk about small town services and care! That is such great care from a super Dr.! Welcome little Princess! Congrats to mom, dad, and boys~
This afternoon, my dear friend, Jeannie was at the funeral of her step-daughter's baby funeral. Born at 21 weeks due to placenta previa, the baby didn't make it. I was unable to attend, but my heart aches for her with her loss. I will be praying for her comfort and healing. I have gone through a miscarriage, and I just think back to my emotions at the time of loss. It is still a present heartache, and an empty spot in our family. So very sad. She found out the baby was a boy, and he was 10 inches long. She was able to hold him, and take pictures. How sad for her. The only peace and comfort from a loss of a child, is knowing your little one is in the arms of Jesus.
