Hope Kaylin was born 3/24! Sorry I haven't updated. She's been in the special care nrusery since then due to breathing issues. She's making great progress and hopefully we'll be home before the weekend but this whole thing has been very stressful. I'll post the birth story later but she's eating great (expressed bm right now but we'll start working on nursing tomorrow). I'm so ready to be home. We've been staying as guests at the hospital on a different floor and it's been stressful. She's our miracle baby and we're so blessed to have her here!!March 2011 002.JPG

Very, very cute!  Love that hair - her skin tone looks like my DC when she was born.  Mama -- I see that you're sitting in a hard wood chair!  BUMMER!!!  I have a friend who was not admitted to the hospital but her newborn was and it was miserable -- hard chairs and no real support for the new mom.  I always thought that would be the worst combo.  I hope you're getting some pampering for yourself.  You look good though.  Congrats!

I am okay. Sore and exhausted but I slept better last night than I have in months. As long as the baby is being held she does well with sleeping. :) Just so glad she's safe, healthy and we're home!!!
