Introducing Skylar Noelle!

Our sweet "Skye baby" as my 5 year old has dubbed her was born on May 9, 2013 exactly 6 weeks before her due date. She only weighed 4 lbs 2 oz and was 16 inches long. My last baby was also 6 weeks early but he weighed 4 lbs 12 oz - it is amazing what a huge difference 10 oz makes on a person that small!! She looked much smaller to me!

 She had to spend 12 long days in the NICU but thankfully she never needed any breathing assistance or anything serious like that. She was simply a "feeder & grower". I'm not going to go into too much detail because I already gave a shortened version of her birth story on my other post HERE but I will provide a huge photobomb. I think pictures can tell a story better than my words could anyway. So without further ado, here is my precious baby girl Skylar Noelle. 

This is just minutes after she was born (if it was even that long) and I was already feeling a little better

Daddy's first time seeing her in the NICU

Poor baby had to have an IV in her head for fluids 

Daddy love
This made me laugh (after I was done crying of course). I had a tubal ligation the day after Skylar was born and the pain was making me extremely sick to my stomach (notice the barf bag to my left). So what did the nurses bring me!?! Crackers of course! I was being "crackered*" even after my HG baby was born. I'm guessing those nurses have never actually thrown up crackers.... It is NOT fun....

*Being "crackered" takes place when you are pregnant and suffering from Hyperemesis, attached to a PICC line, IV fluids, Zofran pump (any or all of the above may apply) and someone tries to be helpful and suggest you just "eat some saltines crackers before getting out of bed in the morning"... When this happens, you are being crackered.
Being  crackered can also mean when someone suggests ginger, prego pops, or sea bands. I promise you, if someone is sick enough that they need to stab themselves in the stomach every day with a zofran pump and be hooked up to multiple IVs and or PICC lines, crackers, ginger, and all of those other remedies just aren't going to cut it. Believe me, they HAVE tried all of the above.
The nurses made signs for all of the babies beds in the NICU :)

I was able to give Skye her first bath when she was a few days old. She wasn't a big fan but when I was done she just laid there and stared at me

Getting her sun tan on (phototherapy for jaundice). The nurses called her a "beach bum" because she had her glasses, sun, and all of that long blonde hair

They made me a card for Mother's day (when she was 2 days old) using Skylar's foot prints. So sweet!

Sleepy smiles

I'm a mess here but this was her first time in clothes. 3 or 4 days old I think

She has the greatest expressions
So hard to stay awake for food!!

Finally doing the car seat test on day 12. She passed and I was able to take her home!! So exciting!
All packed up!
Colin was intrigued

  1. Hi everyone!
    I'm so excited share this testimony here about how i got my ex husband back after a break up. I'm Mitchell Donna 28 yr old from USA, Am a woman who love and cherish my husband more than any other thing you can imagine on earth continent.

That was the question I ask the doctor, he never answer his response was did you want to lost your husband? I immediately reply no I can't afford to lose him. After the operation my husband came back to live and was healthy I was also OK with the instruction given to me by the doctor, after 3 months my husband came home with another lady telling me, that is our new wife that will give us kids and take care of us, that was how I was confused and started crying all day, that was how my husband ran away with his new wife cleanable. Since then I was confuse don't know what to do that was how I went back to the doctor and tell him everything, he told me that, this is not just an ordinary it must be a spiritual problem that was how he gave me this Email: that I should tell he all my problem that he can help that was how i contacted he and I do as instructed. After 22 hours and I have done what he ask me to do, my husband start searching for me and went back to the doctor, that was how we well settle he also told me not to worry that I will get pregnant, this month making it the fifth Month I contacted he am now 3 months pregnant.

  3. After being in relationship with markiss for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again.
