Emma Grace Has arrived!

Emma Grace Stanford arrived prematurely at 27 weeks and 2 days gestation. She was born on February 18, 2006 at 3:26 p.m. by emergency cesarean and weighed in at 2 lbs 2 oz. and is 14 1/2 inches long. She will have a rough few months ahead of her but we are hoping and praying for the best. She is a fiesty preemie princess. I will try and keep this blog updated daily with new pictures and her status as I have time and begin to feel well enough to do so. Thank you everyone for your thoughts, prayers, and well wishes!
