This is my youngest, Melissa Anne Marie. My miracle baby! Also, she was named by her big sister. I said she could name her, so she would realize that this is a brand new baby, and not her baby sister that is gone nor replacing her. She was happy with that. She chose Melissa and Anne-Marie in honor and after of her deceased baby sister.
Missy was born premature. I was seven and a half months pregnant when I fell down the stairs and things started to happen. Very long story short if I hadn’t fallen down the stairs I wouldn’t be writing this post right now, and you wouldn’t be looking at her picture. You see the afterbirth was where the baby should be, and the baby was where the afterbirth should be, and if she would have went full term she would’ve probably died in her own fluids, and I would’ve bled to death, but I truly believe the Lord reached down His hand, and decided I’ve had enough grief, and gave me this miracle baby. 3lbs. 2oz.
and she looked like a little squirrel. I hated going home without her, but she couldn’t leave the hospital until she was 4lbs 8oz., but she finally came home, and we took that skinny little baby, and fattened her up in just about a month. She wore baby doll clothes for a couple of months when she was first born because nothing else fit her. I was in a dollar store, and saw these doll clothes for sale, and I said I bet that would fit her. The dresses, and hats shirts all of them fit her perfect. No more baggy clothes. Yep she was my doll baby!
And here’s my three pounder today! Hey Missy Anne! She lives in Iowa now with her son Edward, and hubby Scott and doing very well. She’s also studying to be a nurse.
All is good! My contribution to the world is done. This factory is closed. ~hehe~ Thank you all for letting me brag about my babies too! I think it did me good to have my babies with me again.
