It's been a long, busy week but I think we're finally settling into a routine. My daughter, Sarah, did amazingly well through a long, hard natural childbirth (40 hours from the time she was induced); came through it with a few stitches and is a patient, calm mother! Baby Zoey is struggling with breastfeeding, and has some jaundice, but is doing well otherwise. She is Sarah and Rob's first, and the way they are with her, you would think it was their 10th. Here's a few more pictures.
My other daughter, Brianna, waited until Sarah and Zoey were home to introduce her to her cousin, Alex, age 2 3/4. At first, he wasn't too sure how to hold her but it didn't take long for him to fall in love.
This is my new all-time favourite picture!
He still has a hard time remembering her name because we referred to her as Baby No Name for so long!
Zoey seems to be asleep all the time, mostly due to the jaundice, but she makes lots of faces. This one is my favourite.
She lost 11 oz. before leaving the hospital, but gained 2 oz. back the first day. The health nurse comes to the house the day after release, to weigh her and see how she is doing. It was a great chance to see her with her eyes open.
Welcome home, Baby Zoey, we love you lots!
