Baby Aspen Kate

The baby counter is way off.  Baby Aspen decided to come five weeks early on August 9 instead of September 14.  At week 34 I started to leak amniotic fluid.  I was admitted into the hospital and given antibiotics. I stayed in the hospital for one week and then they induced me at 35 weeks.  Aspen was born at 5 lbs 15 oz.  She is perfectly normal,  but she is really tiny. She stayed in the NICU for three days just to be monitored.  I had to leave the hospital without her which was a strange feeling, but now David and I are enjoying her at home.

Oh, scary, but she's sooo sweet! I don't think I'd do well with our baby coming on that time frame, but I'm so glad to hear your little sweetie is healthy despite her rushed entry.

Hope your feeling as well as you look, and things are going fabulous with your little girl at home.

PS. I love the name you guys picked out for her & can't wait to see more pictures too :)
