Last Thursday Josephine Luella came into the world at 6:22am weighing 5lbs 10oz. She is tiny and perfect and it has been an amazing week (feels like a year!). We stayed in the hospital Wed – Monday because our girl needed some extra help and so did I. She came out with a little jaundice which made her look like a well bronzed Miami beach bunny. Here are some shots of the last week. Due to sleep deprivation and the fear that my grammar and spelling is lacking I will keep this to pictures and a couple of words.
The hospital made sure to keep close track of us:
Matt was a rock star dad in the hospital because I could not really leave the bed due to my dumb back. Also, the doctor and nursing staff at Community were amazing! Here is a nurse helping Matt figure out how to put a 5lb baby into a massive car seat:
I know that most of you are wondering how Blue and Wade felt about this addition to our family. We met up with them at a park before going home so they could sniff and say hello. They could have cared less.
The first few nights at home were brutal. Josie doesn’t know her days from nights yet so she snoozes all day and parties all night – it’s like she is in college already!
We also have to feed her double time so she can put some lb’s on her little frame. Here I am as Kate, the mad baby feeding scientist:

My birthday is tomorrow – what a perfect gift!
