Behold, The Child!

Finally Gifted-1 and I have made it home from the hospital with the newest member of our family, Cecelia Rose. Cecelia was born Thursday morning at 10:20 AM via a planned C-Section and weighed 9 lbs. 4 oz. and measured 19.75 inches in length (2nd in weight but first in length out of our three!).
Late in the day on Thursday, the neonatologist became concerned about Cecelia's erratic breathing and diagnosed her with having fluid in her lungs. Cecelia was admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and was kept under observation until Saturday afternoon. We, of course, were quite worried but were given every reassurance that many big C-Section babies have such problems and that Cecelia would pull through just fine. Fortunately, they were right and all our new gray hair is for nothing!
Mommy and baby are resting quietly now at home (well, baby is resting, anyway) and our other two are thrilled to wonder at having a new sibling. Thanks to everyone who checked by A Beginner's Mind and I hope to be back on the beat soon.
