Adele - Day 1!

Adele is one day old, and still doing great! Premature babies usually have some jaundice and need phototherapy, which just means lying under special lights until their bilirubin levels are normal. This means she gets to wear some really awesome accessories!


She gets "cares" every three hours where Ben and I can change her and check her temperature and stuff and we can also hold her around these times. When I visited her this afternoon she was crying and cranky, but when I got to hold her she settled down and went to sleep, so that was really nice! I took a couple of pictures with my other hand...


She's still doing really well. According to the nurses she is 'feisty' and is giving them more hassle than a baby her age normally would, and they seem very happy about this. She's going to be a fighter! :-)

And, like her sister when she was born, she prefers to be naked... she had a cute little outfit on earlier but apparently it was irritating her so they took it back off, so she already knows what she wants and how to get it... just like Fiona. Man, I'm going to have my hands full with these two!

Keep that spunk Adele! Fletch had to sleep in the light box a few nights and we couldn't keep his eye mask on the kid. We're so glad to hear Adele is doing so great!

So is it horrible that the first pic of her reminds me of Johnny Depp in the new Willy Wonka?? :) She's just adorable and full of personality it seems!

Hi Mrs C.S. She started pulling on it last night... I'm sure it won't be long before she figures it out!

Hi Kate! It's not horrible! She reminds her daddy of E.T...

Hi Ali! She has so much more than Fiona did, it's funny!

Hi Ereksons! I can't believe it either! I hope everything is going well for you!

Hi C.L... done, and done!

Hi Lori! That will be fun!
