She was a CHAMPION.
Just look at that smile.
All those wires are attached to stickies on her skin, and all of them had to come off. Only as the last one came off did a little frown appear.
After her EEG, she had a two hour echocardiogram, which is an ultrasound of the heart. She didn’t like being naked covered with cold gel while being pushed and prodded. But she did like her “sweeties,” the sugar-water the tech gave her to keep her happy. Poor darling.
Daddies make for the comfiest pillows. And mattresses.
But she definitely makes her opinion known.
Here she is doing her best impression of Queen Victoria: “We are not amused.”
Just look at that sassy little eyebrow.
And she’s a lady about it too.
Good thing, cause she doesn’t like her carseat very much at all.
Isn’t she just the cutest?
This particular parental rite of passage was inevitable.
Total damage: 1 diaper, 14 wipes, 3 q-tips (it was in her bellybutton!), and two paper towels; plus a onesie, a sleepsack, and her fluffy blanket all straight to the washing machine.
There was no warning.
Baby and Mommy are still doing very well. The doctor is saying that they should be able to go home on Friday, possibly even on Thurs. if everything is looking good.
Mommy and Daddy are starting to figure out how much sleep they are going to miss. Emma needs to be fed every 2-3 hours, so that does not leave much time inbetween for sleeping. :-S
Thank you to everyone that has visited, and left comments for us. We really appreciate all the support you guys give us!
Emma decided that she wanted to come a little early! Emma was born last night at 10:11pm. Baby and mommy are doing very well.

First, the 2D images: a nice profile, and her sweet smiling face.
With the 3D images, the tech explained that the technology isn’t perfect: so things may seem a little distorted, when in reality the baby is just fine–the video shows a perfect baby girl. Her left hand is in front of her face, her thumb in front of her chin. The cord is front of her left forehead. The dark patch on her head isn’t hair–it’s just a ultrasound shadow.
