Well it is about time that I update this because the last blog is about waiting on Kaolin and now she is almost 3 1/2 months old now! Everyone tells you that time will go by faster when you have children and how true I have found that to be!! Anyways these are some pictures of her first week. Her birth was not what we pictured but now looking back we learned so much and grew much closer as a family and I know that that is how Heavenly Father had planned for us. I really truly believe that through the trials in our life come the greatest blessings! She swallowed some mucus when she was born and was not breathing at first and very blue. Our OB nurse Patty Willis was so quick to resuscitate her and two pediatricians, ER doctor, a nurse anesthetist, and another OB nurse were all quick to show up to be there for our little girl. Looking back now I cant believe how many people were there for us in such a short time. The Lord truly blessed us by surrounding us with such great people. She was transferred to St. Louis Childrens hospital soon after just in case she would get worse but all she did was progress. We spent four days at Childrens and then we transferred back to Centralia hospital for five days to finish up antibiotics. Then we were able to go home finally!!!!! Since then she has been such a happy healthy beautiful little girl that has blessed our lives in more ways than we can imagine!

Mitch and I have been together since November 2006 when we met at SIU-Carbondale and got married March 8, 2008 and were sealed in the St. Louis Temple for time and all eternity on December 30, 2008. We live in Flora, Il where Mitch farms with his family and loves to collect Indian artifacts. I farm in Salem with my family and spend all my time with our beautiful little girl Kaolin! We are so blessed that she is part of our family! She truly is the center of our lives!!
