Here are a few pictures. I think I’ll tell the whole story in another post, but here’s a quick visual overview.
Here’s little Evelyn just after being born. She came quick and was 6 lb. 10 oz. and 19 in. long.
Here she is in the NICU. She quit breathing when she was only a couple hours old, so they sent her to Neonatal Intensive Care for a day to be watched a little more carefully. She’s holding her Grandpa’s finger and has a little tiny IV board on her right arm. She’s pretty cute, even in intensive care.
Grandma, Grandpa, Avery and all the aunts and uncles came to visit in the hospital when she came back to the newborn nursery. Avery was soooooo excited!
Kisses from Avery
We came home from the hospital on Monday. Evelyn was almost too small for the car seat. We tightened the straps as small as they went and they were still a little loose. The hat we added at home. Aunt Linden crocheted it and sent it in the mail.
Avery loves to give Evelyn hugs and kisses. She says “hode er?” and wants to hold her all the time.
Here’s a picture of how she looks most of the day – sleeping in her bouncer. She’s a sleepy baby and we think she’s pretty adorable.
So there you go. Five days of life in pictures. I’ll have more details later, but for now the important part is done right?
