Above birth weight

Annabella passed her birth weight on Monday, weighing in at 5lbs and 15oz. This is great news because it means we can let her feed on demand instead of trying to force feed her every 3 to 4 hours. Hopefully this will help Amber and I get some longer uninterrupted sleep.

Here's Annabella's favorite sleeping position, difficult to keep up all the time, but awfully cute and adorable.




And one more cute picture of her from the hospital:

She is so darned adorable! Almost makes me want one...but common sense prevails. Keep the photos coming!

Hello! What a cutie Annabella is. Congratulations to both of you. Thank God that she is healthy and happy. I just read your trisomy 18 story and would love to exchange e-mails with you if you have any free moments (which I totally understand if you do not). I just received the dreaded call from the doctor's office that you received - I have screened positive in my quad screen and am now trying to figure out what the next step is. The doctor first scheduled me for an amnio tomorrow morning but after reading a few items online I decided I wanted to do the Level II ultrasound first so they are scheduling that. My e-mail is kookykarla@yahoo.com. Thank you for any info you can provide and again - congratulations on having a healthy and beautiful baby.
