Meet Our Abigail

I'm a little tired right now to post any specific details of the whole "surprise birth", but here are a few shots that were taken this evening in the NICU. J and I were both very surprised to find her in a regular bassinet, instead of an isolet with heat. Abby's nurse said she was regulating her body temp very well, and didn't need to be kept under any warmers. (Abby's nurse is the same nurse William had when he was in the NICU! We all completely remembered each other from 2 years ago.)

Here's me, holding my baby for the 2nd time. Just a little bit happy! ;-)


I know kids aren't permitted in the NICU until age 15, but I really missed not having William there with us.


The tape holding her feeding tube is making her lip a tad strange, but this was the closest we could get to snapping a picture with her eye open. She was just too bored with the whole situation to bother herself with opening the other eye.

Here's the new 2nd time around Daddy! It took a little persuading, but he finally decided that he could hold her without breaking her. She really is a peep-squeak!

J has lots more pictures that he took right after birth, but we're both too exhausted to spend time figuring out how to get them off his phone. Check back tomorrow....?
