Getting to know us... (Brynlee)

As I mentioned yesterday getting to know me and my husband that I was going to talk more about my girls so today is all about Brynlee. Both Justin and I knew we wanted to start a family shortly after we got married. I have polycystic ovarian syndrome and endometriosis so we really weren't sure how long it would take to become pregnant. After a few months of trying I was put on fertility and within eight months we found out that I was pregnant. We were SO excited. Little did I know what the next nine months were going to bring (although Brynlee was the easier pregnancy of the 2). I started getting extremely bad morning sickness and that continued until I was seven months along. My levels were always off which caused me to pass out several times. I also had pre-term labor luckily this little sweetie stayed in until 8 days before she was due. My pregnancy wasn't easy but it was SO worth it. On November 19, 2009 I went in to get induced. After 27 hours of labor, throwing up, and blood pressure dropping my doctor made the decision to do a c-section, just another surprise with my pregnancy. I had no idea what to expect and was so nervous but I was so ready to meet our sweet baby girl. On November 20, 2009, within 10 minutes of making that decision we finally had our Brynlee, 7 lbs. 21 inches and cute as can be. I was instantly in Love after seeing her for a split second before they took her to the nursery so both baby and mommy could get cleaned up. Oh I can't explain the joy I had when they finally brought Brynlee in my room and I held her for the first time. Since the day Brynlee was born she has had the sweetest, caring, and most loving personality. She was such a good baby, we were really lucky!

10 Things Brynlee LOVES being 3 1/2
