After a long awaited 41 weeks, our little girl, Emma Kate arrived on January 28 at 2:47 p.m. weighing in at 7.4 oz and 20 inches long.
She spent 6 days in the Neonatal ICU with breathing complications, and finally after a long, exhausting, emotionally and physically draining time where days and nights ran together, and J-Dub and I ran through the motions, we came home.
I am spending my days at home recovering from a C-section, which is no easy task and something I was completely and totally unprepared for.
Emma Kate is the absolute joy of our lives.
I can never explain how much we love her, and I already feel like she is growing up too fast. Where has the last 9 days gone?
Right now, she is filling up her diaper, and I don’t even mind!!
I’ll be updating soon, I hope, so bear with me.

I’m Angel, a.k.a. Rocket Surgeon, and these are my chronicles. I love writing and I believe our stories should be shared, so here you’ll find anecdotes of my life, loves, worries, fears, joys, and experiences.
I blog about my mishaps and adventures as a wife, mommy, auntie, wanna-be writer, teacher, Texan, country/city/mountain girl, cereal killer and Jesus-freak.
A few things you might discover about me:
•Jesus is my everything; without Him I am nothing, but with him I can do all things
•My family makes this world a better place for me to live in
•I adore chickens, the live ones, although the cooked ones aren’t too bad either
•I have 2 dogs: Grace and Ozzie. And one cat: Rocky Muffin
•My dream job would be to raise chickens and write best sellers
Thanks for stopping by. Kick off your shoes and stay awhile. I know your time is valuable and I honor you for spending a few moments here with me. I hope you find something to brighten your day, lighten your load, make you chuckle and remind you of the good in the world.

Oh, I think I’m the first to see her on the blog!!! Lucky me! She is so absolutely gorgeous! As you can see by all the exclamation points, I am very excited. I will try to tone it down a bit… but she is just so precious!!!! You take it easy. I can’t imagine having a c-section, but so sounds uncomfortable. I love that little girl, and I love love her name. Congrats to you guys. 🙂
Congratulations, Angel and J Dub! Welcome to the world, Emma!
I can only imagine how hard it must have been to have your new baby girl at the hospital without you. I am glad everyone is home now. Blessings!!
I’m not joking … I can barely see the screen through my tears!!! I let out a huge “squeal” when I saw it was going to be the long awaited photo of this BEAUTIFUL gift from God! She is amazing and I thank the good Lord for her safe arrival. (I surely must be “related” somewhere down the familial lineage to have this much emotion over a child whose parents I only “know” through a computer screen!!!) Sorry … got carried away there … and I need to call my kids so they can get a peek at “our” new addition that I talk about. Will be picking up some pink bubblegum cigars to pass out on Sunday at our “real” great-grandbaby’s first birthday party …( I know, I know .. getting a little bit obsessive here, right, but if Emma Kate doesn’t have a real GiGi (great-grandma) can I be hers long distance???? God Bless You All … Until next time … GiGi (Donna H.)
