Emma's first shopping trip

Emma went on her first shopping trip today. Grama and Grandpa Thompson, Matt, Emma, and I all piled into the car and headed to the Pearland Town Center. I wanted to get a baby charm engraved and we thought that it would be a good opportunity to venture out for a short trip. We all enjoyed the outing and the proud grandparents bought a Christmas present for Emma.

Emma's check-up with her doctor went well yesterday. Her jaundice levels have gone down, so she doesn't have to be on the light box anymore. Everyone here is excited to be able to hold her and love on her all they want.

Lots of pictures

Here are some pictures of our little Emma in the hospital and at home. We have enjoyed getting to know her precious personality so much. She is even letting Matt and I get some sleep. When we left the hospital, she had a little bit of jaundice, so she went for a check-up with her pediatrician this morning and her levels had increased slightly. Her doctor ordered a light box for her to sleep on here at the house for the next two days. We will go back to the doctor on Monday morning to see how she is doing. Please be praying that this gets everything under control and she doesn't need any more treatments.

Emma Ruth is home!

Emma and I got to come home yesterday. She is doing great. I am going to post some pictures a little later today. I might be a little partial, but I have to say she is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen!

It's almost time

I just wanted to post one last time before Emma gets here. We are getting ready to go eat dinner and then Matt and I are going to head to the hospital. My dad came in yesterday from Borger and Matt's parents flew in this morning from Midland. We have been doing last minute things around the house trying to get ready. I can't believe that it is time.

Want to see us...well maybe just Emma?
Hospital: Memorial Herman Southwest.
Take HWY 59 south toward Sugarland and exit Beechnut
We should be on the 5th floor in the Pavillion.

Here are some pictures from the sonograms at 37 weeks.
