Welcome Home, Maya!

Wednesday, November 18, 2009


On Wednesday at 2pm, Maya entered her home for the first time! She was 8w6d old (37w4d gestationally) and 5lb9oz. She was sound asleep and we had to actually wake her up to feed her! Bobby and she chatted happily until they fell to sleep. It was wonderful to finally have the two of them together.

Before we left the hospital, we visited APU and then my OB's office. It's kind of sad. Dr. B. missed their delivery and then he missed their visit because he was delivering! Poor guy. He just cant win! But they did get to see Dr. M., who delivered them.

And so here we are... Finally, at home... Together. Thank you, God.

Welcome Home Maya!

I am so, so happy. Now the fun begins!!!

Molly said...

Aawh such great news and of course, love that last picture ! Just one advice if you don't mind: remove those bumpers from her crib. If she rolls over without ability to roll back, she could suffocate. Bumpers are not recommended for such small babies. Enjoy both of them and post lots of pictures !!
Happy home coming, sweet baby Maya
