First set of photos

I got home from the hospital today at about 4:30 p.m. It is wild to be home with four kids...taking care of a newborn is much easier at the hospital. Tonight I will just post a few choice shots of the babe so you can get an idea of what she looks like. More details and photos to come.

In this photo, Naomi has just been born and her umbilical cord cut. She has not yet been cleaned off.



Here she is having some formula to get her blood sugar up. Who is that sexy mama with her?



A few hours after her birth:



The day after her birth:



Here she is all cute and naked with a big ole pacifier in her mouth:



That's all for today, I need to prepare myself for tonight's onslaught.

Congrats! She's very beautiful, and I love her name. How do you give birth and look so great immediately after? Anyway, congrats to you and the fam. I bet Esther will love having a little sister (and of course, the boys too). I hear there's a special bond with sisters, so that should be fun for them.
Take care... Love, Christine Meeks

You look great Andrea. Tim and I were so excited to see how quickly you posted the pictures. Thanks for making the long-distance folks a part of this special time! Love to all!

Naomi said...

Yay! Congrats, Andrea. What a beautiful name you've chosen for your little angel baby! I say with enormous heaps of sincerity: I hope she will be a good sleeper! Kisses from San Diego. . .

Way to go, Andrea! Congratulations! She is so adorable!

She is so beautiful! I feel a little sad that I can't be there to meet her in person! I hope you're adjusting to 4 kids at home--it can be a bit overwhelming with a newborn. I could totally relate to your experience at the hospital. I couldn't get triage to take me seriously either and that was the most pain I've ever felt leading up to an epidural (with Madeline). I'll admit, I'm jealous that you have such little babies! My smallest was 8'5 and my last was the biggest at a whopping 9'10. It scared me out of wanting to have any more babies! Give big loves and hugs to your family from us.
