Gabrielle Grace blessed our familiy at 1:40pm 12/09/10. She weighed in at 6 lbs 1 oz and is 19 inches long. We are truly blessed to have her as a member of our family. She was 4 weeks early so doctors wanted to be on the safe side and have kept her in the NICU for observation over night.
Mommy and Daddy got to finally spend some time with her around 9pm and were both still in shock that they were so blessed. Her blood sugar and body temp are now stabalized and she nursed like a champ once she got the hang of it and had no trouble switching to a bottle to be supplemented. All of the initial issues are very common with premies but she should be bunking with mommy by tomorrow morning! Her big brothers are quite anxious to see her! She looks a lot like her big brother who now watches her from heaven and now shares the same day of the month for their birth! Mommy and baby ard doing well and will be in the hospital for the next 4 days. A special thanks to Memom for being with us today and watching the boys for the past few weeks and the next few days ahead while daddy works and mommy recovers. Thanks to Poppy who went over to the house today to try and trouble shoot the hot water heater that broke this morning...hopefully it will be an easy fix. To all aunts and uncles we can't wait to meet you! Aunt Tara thanks for the adorable outfit! We love you all and thank you for the prayer and well wishes.
