my little girl! She is no longer the only girl in our family and is positively glowing about it!!
Elizabeth Johanna arrived on March 27 at 1:39 AM after 12 hours of labour and 2 big pushes. (Yes you can all mock me now that I have had a 'normal' labour time). However, she was 5 weeks early so we spent a little time in Neonatal Intensive Care (36 hours) due to blood sugar issues, body temp regulation, feeding, etc. Even so she was a good size (7lbs 6oz about 19" long).
After we got out of NICU we needed to spend some more time because jaundice set in. The doctors weren't eager to send us home since all 4 of the boys were sick. So little miss Elizabeth spent several days in her own personal tanning bed and we were finally able to go home this morning.
She still isn't quite up to nursing yet, she nees to get a little stronger. So we nurse a little, pump a lot and bottle feed.
But we're home............and that is a very good thing.
