One cute baby, two yawns, lots of hiccups

This is from her first day. Fortunately, we've been sleeping enough today that we haven't had much of a chance to take pictures or record video.

Last night, we finally sent baby girl to the nursery after her 9 p.m. feeding, then when she came back, she ate and then slept in our room for another three hours or so.

We all were awake through the morning, during which time they had to take another blood sample to check her for infection since Mama was positive for Group B Strep. They had tested baby girl last night, and her white blood cell count was a few points above normal (normal is 9-30, she was 30.something), so they rechecked her this morning. This morning's test came back within the normal range, so we're free to go home this afternoon.

As I type this, Mama's signing the discharge papers, so all that's left is to wait for baby girl to wake up so we can feed her and take her home.

  1. Putting her in the car seat is sure to wake her up.

  2. Actually, it didn't wake her up. She's still spoiling us.

    I seem to remember those days as being the sleepiest. Provided you don't mind sleep in 30 minute portions. She looks adorable! Sigh.

  4. Congratulation! Double trouble now!
