Reia Ann Wolfe - Dec 15, 2009, 10am

Who says IVF kids are scrawny? 7 lbs - 12 oz, 19 inches long. The picture below was taken at 2 hours old.

And she has my feet. Mine are less wrinkly.

Here's a shot a 12 hours.

And one at about 24 hours with Susanna's hat on. She'll grow into it.

A happy momma:

The first bath was pretty entertaining. While the nurse was toweling her off I had to run back to Lia's room to get the camera, since her whole body took on a beautiful ruby tone.

All in all she's pretty easy to take care of. With exception of the above incident, and whenever she gets a little cold, she just hangs out with us, sometimes awake, sometimes not. The doctor said to expect a little jaundice, and the first sign of it is yellow eyes, but hers are as white as the driven snow, as far as I can tell. Tomorrow we have our first checkup!

Thanks to everyone for the well wishes and to those who stopped by. It was good to have people around during our short hospital stay.
