Baby Z!


Due to some not-fun complications, our sweet Baby Zoe made a surprise appearance almost eight weeks before scheduled on August 12 at 11:39 am. She weighed in at 4 lbs 1 oz and was 17 inches long. I think I might have been the most swollen, miserable person on the face of the earth. Ok, maybe not the entire face of the earth, but it did feel that way. (Hello-look at my hands and nose and, ok, entire face. Super cute) Baby Z is still in the hospital, but improving and getting bigger everyday. Learning to grow some patience is not an easy thing to do when your baby isn't living at home with you, but we feel so blessed that she is healthy and has no major issues other than smallness. We have lots of pictures and lots of updates that may someday actually make it to publication, but for now, Welcome to the world Miss Zoe! We're so excited you are here:)

Congratulations!!!! She's beautiful! Can't wait to see more pictures of the little darling. :)

Kortlen was in the NICU because of size, too, but he was 9 lbs 4 oz...

Hope she gets to come home soon! it's frustrating to leave them there, deal with feedings, etc, etc. Love to you and your sweet family!

Congratulations! I wondered if you were having a girl this time around. How fun--and I love the name you picked.

Well, if only I'd read your blog. Who would have thought with all the time you don't have, that you would be so bloggy.

I'm loving the baby "Z". Max has been calling our little button "D" for ever, even before we knew of any names.

I'm so glad Z is doing well, She is super small, and we all know that if it's smaller, it's cuter, clothes, babies, bodies, feet....
