Ainsley Maxwell Ririe

Her last day in my belly was quite eventful to say the least...I was sent to the hospital for a non stress test to monitor for decreased movement. The doctors were concerned with her heart rate so I was sent for an ultrasound...turns out, after having been head down for almost 3 weeks, she summersaulted herself breech, an event that John and I witnessed the night before while watching Le Mis Christmas evening, this explained the decreased movement. So, they checked me into the hospital and tried a procedure called a version, an extremely painful one I might add, where the doctor literally manipulates your belly forcefully while turning baby whatever way it needs to go, SO NOT FUN! We were warned that the cord could get wrapped around her neck thereby sending us straight to emergency C-section and that there was only a 40% chance that it would work anyway. My husband comforted me with a beautiful blessing and we left the rest in our Heavenly Father's hands.  Another ultrasound immediately revealed that the version worked and so they broke my water before she had a chance to turn again.  John and I were so grateful and just beaming that all was well with the baby and she'd be coming soon, we thanked Heavenly Father hearing our prayers.

 We settled into our room

and waited..
and waited...



 Ainsley Maxwell 
came into the world, delivered by her Daddy...a memory I'm sure he'll never forget, weighing in at 8 lbs. 9oz. 21 in. long Dec. 27th, at 8:50 am.


We know that our girl was lovingly watched over in heaven by loved ones we miss, and when it was time they bid her farewell...until we meet again.


  1. What a beautiful album and sweet memories that will last a lifetime.
    I am so happy for you and how you have embarrassed the the church and the wonderful teachings it has.
    We love you all and hope one day we get the chance to see you all.

    Be blessed and glad you have been blessed with another special angel.

    Love you
    Tia Angela
