We want to announce that Ryleigh is going to be a big sister at the end of January. So far, everything is looking good and we just keep praying that this one will be a healthy pregnancy. They gave us a due date of January 25. My HCG levels were at 72.5 which is great compared to 16 in March when I had the miscarriage. My progesterone levels went from 15.9 on Saturday to 22.5 on Wednesday, which is excellent!! We go for our first prenatal visit on June 4. We are very excited! We thank God for blessing us again and we just keep praying for everything to be healthy this time around!
Ryleigh has recently started saying "night-night". It actually sounds like "nigh-nigh". We know there are other 'words' that she is saying, we just haven't really figured out what she is really saying. She has also said another 2 word sentence a couple of times... "Hi Archie". She is going to chattering up a storm before we know it!!
Gabriella Ruth was born yesterday, May 7 at 8:33 am. She was 6 lbs 15 oz and 20 inches long (just 2 oz bigger than Ryleigh and it is so hard to remember Ryleigh being that tiny). She has really dark brown hair (not red this time). She is so beautiful!!! Sarah and the baby are doing great!! Andrew is a VERY PROUD big brother!!! Mom, Andrew, Ryleigh and I were at the hospital yesterday visiting. Sarah checked in at the hospital at 1 am to be induced and so mom and I had planned to go and hang out with her and wait for baby Ella to be born, but Ella was in a hurry and didn't wait for us to get there! ;) Ryleigh is a proud cousin too! She loves babies and thought Ella was pretty cool.
Congrats to Matt, Sarah and Big Brother Andrew!!! We love you!!!
