FC: Emilie Madison Yoder April 27. 2010 | Our Baby Girl
1: I had a pretty fun and easy pregnancy with you! I only gained 19 pounds, which was the result of never having any appetite! The nurse had to order me to eat chips if nothing else, just to make sure I didn't lose weight.
2: 5:28 AM 7 lb. 9 oz. 19 3/4" | You were born after two fast, intense hours of labor during which I was convinced I would die. You sucked your thumb immediately and have been sucking it ever since. You were beautiful!! e
5: Grandma Redmond, Aunt Hannah and Aunt Robin came up on the 24th be here and help when you were born. Walking around the Kalamazoo mall with them sent me into labor! It was SO nice to have them here for 2 weeks!

11: You light up my life, Emilie. I'm so blessed to be your mommy! Your eyes sparkle and your laugh is so contagious. I can't wait to watch you grow up!
