Here is the story, from Brooke's blog post...
My sweet girl arrived at 1:06pm on 7/19/12 weighing a whopping 7lbs. 13oz. and 21 inches long. I still can't believe she's here and I'm a Mom! That's insane!!!
We did have a bit of hard delivery as she had a bowl movement before she came out and is in now in the NICU because she then inhaled it into her lungs. Colbi is a trooper and doing well though, she is on a CPap and antibiotics (sidenote update: Brooke just text me and told me she is no longer using the CPAP! Yay!). Hopefully, she will able to come home within a week. Maybe say a little prayer for us? I'm so sad at the thought of not being able to take her home but it's for the best.
The birthing experience is one of the craziest, most beautiful, hardest, most rewarding, emotional things ever. I will never forget the moment she entered this world and what that felt like. I'm so thankful God blessed me with this experience and my beautiful daughter. I pray that she heals and that Gods hands are on her. I'm waiting to be able to hold her!
My husband could not have been or can not be any better. I am so blessed and grateful to have such a loving man. He has been just awesome through everything and is doing great at helping me with recovery. I was truly given a gift the day I married him and even now, he has given me the greatest gift of all.
Thank you to all who are and have been praying for us. I know Colbi is doing well because of all of you! We can't not say enough thanks for it!!!!
