Emma has arrived!
Yesterday at 19:08 Emma Rose Fairchild took her first breath coming in slightly under the 35 week mark. 5 pounds 4 oz 17.5 inches tall. She made her debut with a head full of dark hair and a strong set of lungs. Being 34 weeks and 6 days she is remarkably healthy. She is breathing on her own, sustaining her body temperature and learning this eating thing one step at a time. Annalynn was very impressed with Emma and her newly acquired "BIG SISTER" status. I'm told she couldn't wait to tell her fellow students at Pre-school/Daycare. Marisa is doing great and a glowing proud mother. Both slept (for the most part) through the night without issue. We are mostly ready for the new arrival at home but the painter doesn't start on the nursery until friday.
We are greatly appreciative of all the support we have received in the last 24hrs and can't begin to thank everyone. We didn't plan for the early debut but we are rolling with it. Now on to what everyone is really here for....Pictures.
