This was the hardest pregnancy I've had: The first 3 months I could hardly stop throwing up, and when the awful nausea seemed to start getting better I started having more serious problems. They started just a couple days before Scott and Tobi went back to Malaysia, at the beggining of November, but the Doctor, Dane and I didn't become really concerned until the day they were going to leave. So that day, my wonderful husband and wonderful Father-in-law gave me a blessing in wich said the baby was going to make it to full term and be born to this world without any physical or mental problems. And despite all the scares, all the trips to the ER, to the hospital, all the tests and ultrasounds and the concern of my doctor who said he could only keep his fingers crossed, and my Bishop who told me to be prepared for the worst (he is a Doctor too) the 17th of May at 1:19 in the afternoon the words of that blessing came true, and the most beautiful baby girl made her arrival to this world without any problems.
Little Aria Lucia Sanders, as her name indicates, is a melody of light, a testimony of faith and of the priesthood and a wonderful blessing in our lives.
Even though she was born 1 week and 1 day before her actual due date, she has been our biggest baby weighing 8 pounds and 2 ounces and 21 inches long. She's had the lightest hair of all four of them as well and a little tiny nose that doesn't look either like Dane's or like mine. She has dimpled cheeks and what looks so far like blue eyes. I call her my "nubecita" (little cloud) because she reminds me of those little clouds that you see in the otherwise clear summer sky, all tiny, white and cuddly. Just looking at her I feel so peaceful inside and I can't stop thanking my Heavenly Father for her and her 3 bigger sisters that, like mommy and daddy are completely crazy about her.
