Hi Everyone – boy has this been an interesting week. I really appreciate all the prayers and emails from you all regarding Eliza.
For those of you that don’t know, I gave birth to my 8 lb, 12 oz daughter on 2/4 at 2:40 in the morning. We are down in Atlanta. Right after birth, she had trouble breathing and was having fluid build up in her tummy so she has been in the NICU. I have been discharged as of today but Eliza is still in the NICU. We are hopeful that she will come home tomorrow as she has proven to be strong and quite the fighter. She has healed much faster than they anticipated. The hospital here is great and they have special rooms for parents to stay in when their baby is in the NICU so we are taking advantage of that and staying right here with her.
I want to give a HUGE thank you to Amy of The Budget Mommy. I know some of you thought I was crazy and still posting deals 😉 but she’s the one that has been posting for you all the past few days so I could spend time with my baby girl and time to heal. Be sure to check out her blog over HERE. Thank you so much Amy!
I think it’s going to take me forever and a day to get caught up now, but we’ll be rolling again soon. My husband has the next few weeks off to help me out with everything. Thanks again for being such awesome readers!
Congratulations, Erin and Hubby! She’s beautiful! Sending healing thoughts your way!!! Take care of you and that precious little one!
Rough start to a smooth life, but she is beautiful Erin. Blessings to you & your family, and prayers coming your way. Take good care of yourself!
Prays with you and family during this long week. Great your husband has been able to take the time to help, you are going to need it. God bless your new little one.

Congrats! She’s beautiful!!! You guys are in my thoughts. Take care.
Our pryers are with you and the whole family. God bless you.
I am glad to hear she is doing better, quite scary to say the least! My twins were 31 weekers & spent 19 days in NICU, boy do I wish they had a room for me! It was an hour drive one way to see them! Take advantage of DH being home with you and take care of yourself. Thanks for all you do!
I’m sorry to hear that your little Eliza isn’t well. I’ll be praying for her to get well and home with you soon! Congratulations!
Congrats on the birth of Eliza! I don’t have FB, so I didn’t know the situation you guys were facing. I am praying for you all and hoping that you’ll be home soon.
Congratulations to you and your family! Sending prayers your way…
Congratulations! Baby Eliza is beautiful. Prayers to your family for a speedy recovery.
