Welcome Heidi Clara

Heidi Clara arrived on March 8th 2012 at 8:06 in the morning. She weighed in at 10 lbs and 9 oz. And was 20 1/2 inches long. She spent the first 48 hours of her life in the NICU because she had fluid in her lungs and was breathing fast. We were so excited when she was finally released to us and was able to come home with me, this was the first child of ours that left the hospital the same time as I did.
This is Heidi in a little outfit that I wore when I was a baby that my mother saved for me.

A little smile.
Grandma Jane came to help out with the boys and with the new addition, here she is with Heidi giving her a little sun. We discovered she was a little jaundiced and so we were putting her in some indirect sunlight.
We are so excited to have our little girl here. The boys are so cute with her and are constantly giving her kisses and talking to her. Nathan thinks she is a really fun toy and wants to play with her all the time. He loves her maybe a little too much, but we hope they become really good friends in the future.
