Two Week Check up

Ella Katherine had her first pediatrician appointment today. It went great! She weighed 7lbs. 2 oz. and was 20 inches long. A week ago she weighed 6lbs 5 oz. My little girl can eat! She already has her first cold and it is pitiful to see her not able to breath well. There isn't much you can do for them at this age. The doctor said she looked very healthy!
I had another appointment yesterday and my blood pressure is finally starting to go down. I have to go back a couple times just to keep it in check.

Two Day Check Up

Ella Katherine had her two day check up yesterday. Her weight and temperature were great. She is jaundiced however. We were sent home with a bili blanket. We knew she had a great tan considering she came from Matt and me. I figured it was to good to be true. She will stay on the blanket until Thursday when we go back for the check up. She looks like a little glow worm. The blanket has a fiber optic light that is attached to her back by a vest. The vest is attached to machine. We can't take her off of it so she has to stay in one place. I am putting up some pictures of her glowing in the dark.

One Eventful Year

Somehow between giving birth and bringing home a new baby, I forgot to mention our one year anniversary. Sunday, December 16th was our one year anniversary. I can't believe how quickly it has flown by and that we celebrated it by bringing home the greatest gift we will ever receive. I have been so blessed to have Matt in my life. He is such a great husband and now a great father.

Ella Katherine is here. She arrived a little under 24 hours after labor was induced and it was a great delivery. She was born on December 14th at 3:40p.m. She weighed 6lbs 13 ounces and was 19 3/4 inches long. She is so precious!! I have never been so in love with anything in my life. We came home today around lunch time and we are all doing great! Thanks for the prayers!

Ella Katherine will be here tomorrow!!

We went in for the thirty seven week check up yesterday and we received quite the surprise. We are going to induce labor tonight and should have a baby on Friday!!! My blood pressure was quite high and I had begin to progress a little. I am only one centimeter dilated and seventy-five percent effaced. We have to be at the hospital at 5:30p.m. tonight. Please keep us in your prayers. I can't wait to meet our little girl!! I will try to get Matt to put some pictures on here sometime tomorrow.
