Yesterday was Kallie's dedication. It was last minute, but we wanted Bro. Durr to do it before we leave for PA. Next Sunday is our last Sunday but the Durrs will be gone. Kallie was exactly 2 months old.
These pictures bring back a lot of mixed feelings. I want to cry and be happy at the same time. I hope and pray that none of you ever have to have a child go through what Kallie had to go through.
An update: Kallie saw the surgeon last Friday and everything seems to be healing fine and her chest x-ray came back good. She goes to see the cardiologist a week from today and have an EKG. Kallie is up to 9 pounds and seems to be very healthy. We love her to pieces and don't know what we would do with out her. I'm a super busy mom of two now, so the blogging has kind of gone by the way side... sorry.
Katrin is a 'good' big sister. She loves Kallie very much but doesn't know her own strength. I know all kids go through the adjusting stage with a new sibling but Katrin's adjusting stage seems to be lasting a little too long (if you catch my drift). I will say that she can be a really big help to me when I need something in the other room or just help setting the table. She really is a lot of fun to have around.
Yesterday, our lives were blessed by the birth of Kallie Renee' Eckert. She entered our world at 8:24 am weighing 7 lbs. 5.8 oz. She was 20 1/4 inches long. Kallie is a very healthy little girl with a healthy set of lungs and a head full of very dark hair.
We expect mommy and baby to come home on Friday. Pictures will be posted in a few days.
Thank you to all who have stopped by to she us already! We have really enjoyed your company.
I went and had my pregnancy pictures done this past week. I figured I'd better do it before I run out of time.
A little update... camp was great! Last year we had our house broken into during camp, thankfully God protected our home (our next door neighbor's house was hit, though). We did have some excitement though, I ended up in the ER and was diagnosed with acute bronchitis. What fun!?!? I'm better now and 'enjoying' the last weeks of my pregnancy. I think I'm ready for her grand arrival. This past week, we did have a little scare. I thought my water broke... another fun trip to the hospital. Anyway... life is never boring.
