I wanted to finally post what happened after Christmas and baby finally came. Having Heidi due Jan 3 did make us anxious during the holidays wondering if she'd be a Christmas Eve baby, or a Christmas baby, or a New Years Eve baby (aka tax break baby), the first baby of the new year (I hear you get tons of free diapers for that one), or just, when you gonna come, baby? baby. Well, she started coming on her due date and got here Jan 4 at 7 lbs. 1 oz. and 19 inches long at 10:46 on a clear and bright Wednesday morning here in Pennsylvania.
Here she is at just a couple minutes old. Seeing Heidi that new was quite the experience. I'd never really thought of life in terms of seconds and minutes, but there she was at 5 seconds old, at 2 minutes old, at 1 hour old. Her life seemed so fragile. It was scary. She cried a bit at first and scanned the room with a "what is this?!" kind of look, but seems to be getting more used to life here.
Here she is getting some sun and giving a solid (fist bump) on her changing pad.
We haven't had much success with pacifiers yet, but we do what we can.
Grandma Green and Aunts Annie and Tara came to visit and give some love too.
Here she is mugging for her passport photo. I can't handle how adorable she is here.
