The Latest

Well Elle is sick. Her papa and I were both sick when she was born so I'm sure that's where she got it. The poor little love can hardly eat because she can't breathe very well out her nose. The dr. said she was doing well but to keep an eye on her. She now weighs 10.5 pounds and is an inch longer. She's also in the 97th percentile for height. We may have a future model on our hands......

This last week was an interesting week for me. I was in the hospital Wednesday night with a fever of 101.5. The verdict was that I had lost a lot of blood during the delivery. My hemadacrit (not sure if that is spelled right) level was at 29 and they do blood transfusions at 27. So that explains why I was so tired and weak. They have me taking iron supplements and it seems to be helping.

My mother in law has been in town all week and has been a huge help. My house has never been so clean and organized. I wish she didn't have to leave.

I need to go now and take care of the babe. she just woke up.

man, that is so sad. It is probably my fault too. I am so sorry. I really hope she gets better soon. I love the pics from her second week of life. She is really amazing and beautiful. I am so sorry that I was so busy this last week that I didn't get to come over and take more pictures.
