Our little girl arrived September 8, 2007 at 7:58 am. At 7 lbs 11 oz, 20 1/2 inches long she immediately stole our hearts! She is an absolute beauty and perfect in every way! Joe was able to take two weeks off of work so we could spend time as a family, it was so good to have him home. Stella was born with jaundice and had to sleep under the bililights when we came home. We had to cover her eyes with patches and a mesh cap, she did so great- she never even cried. On the other hand, I was a wreck - I cried and cried. Dad and Grammy stayed up with her all night to make sure she was okay so I could try and get some sleep. She graduated from the bililights after just one night. My mom stayed with us for a few nights to help out - she was a life saver! Joe is back to work now, Stella and I are trying to adjust to a normal life. Us girls love our sleep so we're trying to avoid sleeping the days away. We feel much better when we get up and leave the house for a few hours. Stella is so much fun and so dang cute! She is getting bigger everyday and cuter every second! We love her so much!!
