Anna Upclose

Here are the closeups of Anna people have been asking for. I had to include a side view of her cute upturned nose.

I hope all of you have a very merry Christmas this week.

Nora and the Nutcracker

Nora had another successful session of dancing, ending with a very sweet Nutcracker themed parent open house. Doesn't she look so precious in her Clara costume?

Hospital Stay

I love this picture. This was the first time the girls got to see their new baby sister and I think Aubrey was more happy to see the cool room behind the window then Anna. Aubrey finally noticed Anna when I showed them the black umbilical cord on her belly button.

So here is the brief story of why she was in the hospital for the first week of her life . . .

She pooped before she came out.

Meconium in the amniotic fluid can be kind of scary for baby's health after birth so all precautions were taken. Anna is happy, healthy, and well and now on to greater new things, like breastfeeding.

Birth story soon to come and of course more pictures of Anna.
