Day 2

Yesterday was a good day for Sophie. It was almost like she was twice as old as she was the day before. She's breastfeeding well and was happy most of the day. She was down about 13 ounces, to 8 lbs, 2 oz, but the doctors aren't too worried, and the weight should pick up soon, when the milk comes in.

We also received a visit from Sophie's 2nd cousin, Kiley, along with her parents, Ben and Macey. Kiley is 6 weeks old, and is very cute and sweet. You can see more of her at Macey's blog. Here are a couple pictures from the last 24 hours (sorry, Nana, no feet or hand pictures yet - she gets mad when we un-swaddle her):



Abbie is doing well also. We went for a 15 minute walk yesterday and she did awesome. She will be discharged tomorrow at 3:00 pm. We look forward to both getting to sleep in a comfortable bed again (although for only 2-3 hours at a time). If anyone wants to call us, and doesn't have the number, our telephone number in the room is (520) 694-3721.

She just gets prettier every day! I can't wait to visit her again. I am so glad Abbie is doing well.

Everyone should have cousins their age! How fun. I hope I get to see you this weekend.

Hey Jake and Abbie,
This isn't really Kim I am posing as Kim- This is Karri. Last time I pretened to be Kim I was in the 1st grade. You have a beautiful little girl. Congrats! I hope Abbie is feeling OK and that she will take it easy. Labor then surgery, Yikes. Good luck with everything. Am I the only person that noticed she is almost as big as her cousin?

those are some very intense cheeks Miss Sophie has going on. She is adorable, and I'm very impressed with a 15-minte walk post c-section. ouch. is she standing up straight? cuz that really would not be fair. i mean, good for her. :)

I love Kiley's "Dr. Evil" look in her first picture.
