Fun Pics

Back in the hospital

For those of you who didn't hear, 4 days after Grace was born she ended up back in the hospital with a meningitis scare, which turned out to be nothing. She was put in the ICU for about 4 days while they waited for her spinal tap cultures to come back. After waiting 48 hours for that they decided to do another spinal tap because they felt like the growth in her culture was a contaminate, which gratefully turned out to be the case. So after 4 extremely emotional and stressful days we were able to come home. Wow, what a week it has been, it feels like a month, not a week. Roy and I would like to thank everybody for all of the prayers and support. This experience really showed us how much people love us and care about us. It is so comforting knowing we can count on help from so many people. We love you all.

Kisses for Grace

Jane loves to give kisses to Grace, especially when she cries. Jane is a very sensitive girl.

Big sister, Jane

Jane is doing pretty good with the arrival of Grace. Jane gets more and more used to her new little sister each day. She has grown up a lot during the past 2 weeks.

Grace Hazel Richter has arrived!!

Grace was born on March 25th at 10:16 am. I went in to the hospital Thursday night to get induced and during the night I went in to labor on my own. Everything went really well with no complications. Grace looks a lot like Jane did as a newborn. It will be fun to see if they continue to look alike.
