I’m so excited that my first post will be on baby Meghan! Meghan is my niece, and also the fourth child in the family- just like me! Having just graduated from college, I was able to spend some time living with my sister’s family in Kansas City, preparing for Meghan’s arrival, welcoming her into our family, and capturing her first few weeks in this new big world!
So on September 17th Meghan finally arrived! It was such an exciting day for all of us, but we didn’t expect that she would have to stay in the NICU for the next 11 days as her lungs continued to develop. Those days were rough for the whole family. It was hard watching her struggle for air, breathing and feeding from tubes, and just not being able to take her home.
About a week in the nurses told us that Meghan yanked out the tubes herself (go Meghan!). Because of that, they decided to keep her off the tubes and have Emily nurse instead, which was a huge step! We were all so proud of her. A few days later we brought Meghan home and as you can imagine, everyone was super excited!
Oh welcome to the world, Meghan Hope Lee! We’re so happy you’re here!!
Stay tuned for more pictures of baby Meghan and the family!
