Debut

Just a quick update, between medication doses.

Here are the stats: Baby G was born at 7:59 am on Wednesday, Dec 10th. She weighs 7 lbs and 8 oz but is only a stubby 18 inches long. She has a full head of dark hair but won't open her eyes long enough to see the eye color.

The c-section went well; probably the easiest one yet. I'm fine and now completely wireless. The Baby, however, had to spend some time in the NICU due to excessive fluids in her lungs. As of this morning, all systems are go.



Congratulations to Kristie, who guessed the correct date and came closest to the correct size. I'll be sending your prize once I am no longer on narcotics.

*I will not be posting Baby G's real name or the hospital we are in for obvious reasons. If you would like to know, please email me.

Congrats! She's so cute! As we were leaving preschool, your son screamed to the whole class, "MY BABY SISTER IS OUT OF MOM'S TUMMY!" He was pretty excited- but I guess you probably are too!
I probably won't make it over to the hospital because I've had a sore throat as of last night- I'll wait till I'm better to see her. BTW, I like your new background on the blog.

She's darling!!
Those are some cheeks just begging to be pinched.
Hope you're doing well. I was thinking about you all day yesterday.
Max only opened one eye until he was 5 days old.

Jo said...

Congratulations!!! So hoping she is fine and dandy quickly. You take care of yourself, you hear? None of this getting up too soon stuff. Give her a kiss for me, on her sweet lil fuzzy head, okay?

Another congratulations! I'm so glad to hear everything is well now for mom and baby and that the process wasn't horrible, either.

You did miss a rockin' R.S. party, though! ;)

YOU HAD THE BABY AND I DIDN'T GET TOLD!!!! ITS PAST 4 DAYS AGO!!!
She is beautiful...I wonder where that Brown hair came from????
Maybe she'll be a red head? Or Strawberrier.
I hope you are doing well and that everyone is adjusting to this new bundle of joy!
I Love you all! And Miss you all SO Much!
