Pink!

I can't seem to wipe the smile off my face or find the ground.. I am elated! We are having another precious baby GIRL. More pink it is!!

A baby girl with a beautiful, healthy heart with 4 chambers that I did count out loud. And then I cried.

I realized as soon as I laid down on the table that I was extremely nervous. All the sudden I realized I was about to find out if there was something wrong and I didn't want to go thru with it. What if? I wasn't ready to handle it. But we had the same tech that did Bela's ultrasound and found her heart defect and she knew how I was feeling. So she went straight for the heart and right away up popped the most BEAUTIFUL thing I have ever seen. 4 chambers and a nice, big left ventricle. I don't think until right then I realized how much I'd worried I wouldn't see that, and it felt amazing to see it so clearly.

I want to remember this.. The tech said on a little 8 ounce baby it is extremeley difficult to get as great of pictures of her heart as we were able to get. She said our little girlie was in the perfect position right from the start to get perfectly clear images of her heart. She must've known I needed to be comforted today. It was a tender mercy.

Then I met with Dr. Huish who further told me it was perfect and that all other measurments were too. He told me to stop worrying and enjoy the rest of my pregnancy. Feels soooo good!

You totally brought me back to when we found out our new little guy had a healthy heart. I've been whining because I'm tired of being pregnant, one week to go! So thanks for reminding me of that wonderful, grateful feeling! Congrats to your family, that is so good to hear!

Avery, I thought of you today as I remember just how nervous I was as well to find out if Kanyon was healthy. I know the relief you are feeling and it is so wonderful. Your tender mercies will not end as I see the Lord's love for me every day through Kanyon. He is truly a light for me and our family and such a blessing. Enjoy your pregnancy now and get ready for a fun baby experience. Kanyon will be one soon and Im not ready to let him go as my baby, he is just so easy!

I think of you often. We finally have Eden's marker complete and being installed and we will be inviting you to the unveiling as it gets closer. She would like her kindred sister there :)

Love, Keisa

That last post was fabulous... and so is THIS one!!

Again, i can't tell you how happy I am for you. That appointment (for me) was soooo scary. Don't you feel like you've won the lottery? I did. I immeditely saw the four chambers and let out a huge sigh of relief!

How exciting that Bela is going to be a big sis... do you have a name picked out?

Congrats!! Can't wait for more fabulous news!
