5 Days old and we are still going to keep her!

Well...we have survived 5 days with Randi and only had two trips to her doctor, two trips back to the hospital to have blood work done (nothing serious though), a cool light that she has to lay on as much as possible during the day, her first bath at home, several walks around the hood, and many sleepless hours. So to sum it up everything is going great!

And now here is the more detailed version. We got the results back from the multiple trips to the doctor and hospital, her billirubin score has gone down. It was at 17.5 on Monday and as of yesterday it had dropped to 15, and that was without even being on the billi-light blanket. She has to sleep on it as much as she can until tomorrow. Her weight has started going back up, it was at 5 pounds 10 ounces today when we went to the doctor, so a total gain of 8 ounces in two days! The bath was lots of fun, full of screaming and wiggling around (that was just me; Randi did great!)...Oh how we look forward to the next one in a few days. Steph is doing great beside being a little sleep deprived, but we knew that was part of the deal 9 months ago. So here are a few pictures before we call it a night and try to get some sleep before the next feeding in two hours.

The first full day of life with Randi...

First of all we would like to thank everyone for all of the emails, texts, and especially the time spent up here at the hospital with the three of us. It has been great to see everyone and hopefully we have been able to get some pictures of everybody holding Randi. I am sure most people arent checking this to read what I have to say, but rather to see a few here go a few.

Thats right!!! She has finally made her appearance into the world! Randi Brooks Gay arrived at 2:42pm this afternoon August 8th, 2008...8-8-08. She weighed in at 5lbs and 11ozs and measured 18 and 3/4th inches long. Mother and baby are doing great and Mom and Dad are both exhausted especially Mom (she did all the work)!

More pictures to follow soon!

Will she ever come???

Just a quick update....we went to the doctor on Tuesday. Baby Girl's estimated weight is 6 lbs. 9 ozs. So she has gained nearly a pound in 3 weeks. Her heart rate is still around 150. They took some pictures of her and here are a few.

As for Steph she is doing well....really hating the summer, but hopefully Baby Girl will be here and we will have her to hold in our arms and that will make it all worth while for us. She is still having the contractions/Braxton Hicks so delivery should be soon!

Stay tuned for more updates to come. Hopefully next time there will be some real photos of Baby Girl instead of the ultrasound ones.
