Only two more days until Kristin's birthday, but I guess Elli wanted her own day all to herself. After four weeks of stopping pre-term labor and bed rest, Kristin was so relieved to finally make a trip to the hospital with the purpose of coming home with a baby. Elli came into the world weighing 6 lbs 8 oz.
She managed to poo in the amniotic fluid before she was born, and then a geiser of it went up her nose and mouth when she made her way out, so her stats are a little shakey, and she'll probably be on antibiotics for 3 days. She's in the NICU - got an IV, so nursing waits, much to Kristin's disappointment, but this is NOTHING like the preemie situation last time, so all is well. A minor blip.
Elli is beautiful and perfect with tiny little girl feet, a sweet little face and dark hair.
