5 Days Old

I've been wanting to write about little Lea and how we are all doing, but I just can't find the time! (go figure) We are doing great, though. Lea had her first appointment with the pediatrician yesterday morning and he was very impressed with how well she is doing... already gaining weight, very strong and healthy! Here are a few more pictures...

Mommy & Lea leaving the hospital.

Lea held mommy's finger (tight) the entire way home!

Welcome home!

Lea found her thumb!

When she was born, she weighed 8 lbs, 1 oz. When we left the hospital, she weighed 7 lbs, 7 oz and just two days later she was already up to 7 lbs, 11 1/2 oz. She's an eater!
Here's a video of our ride home from the hospital. She was an angel! (note the music in the background... Rockabye Baby Lullaby Renditions of the Smashing Pumpkins, "Today"... very fitting for the moment!)
