Spending some time

Right now we are just spending some time with Carleigh. We have some family that are with us too. I will probably post in a few days our birth story. I know I want to get it down before the little details of it fades. Carleigh is 3 lbs 15 oz and 13 1/2 inches long. She's a tiny little girl but she has a big hold on her mommy's heart! I had wished very much that Carleigh would be born alive and that we could spend some time with her that way but I am not heartbroken that she was born still. When it came right down to it, it just didn't matter. Between Ashley, Kim, my father-in-law, and myself we will have lots of pictures. We also made sure to get lots of keepsakes. We have imprints of her hands and feet and also her hand and footprints. Just this afternoon we clipped some of her hair to keep. Yes, she has hair! I think she looks very much like her sister Kyndra, especially those precious chubby cheeks! I love holding her in my arms and just being close to her. I imagine we will be here in the hospital until sometime tomorrow. I plan on keeping her until we leave. At that time, we will call our funeral director and we will go with him to the funeral home. That is the part I am not looking forward to at all. It is going to be so hard.

You have truly inspired me to be a better person. You will continue to be in our prayers, stay strong, and know you have ALOT of people thinking about you and your family.
