Sweet Baby Girl

As promised, we would like to share some photos.
Here she is in her big pink bow ready to leave the hospital.

In these two photos, Adrianne is only moments old,
but bright eyed and smiling!

And here are a few from Big Brother's visit. Mamas, remember how much you miss your babies when you go away to have another? It's a sweet reunion even after just one night.

This is the hand knitted cap she wore when James came to visit. For whatever reason, he had taken to holding it in his hand before he left the hospital to go home. They let him take it with him, and the most precious thing.....he carried it around as he played at home on Sunday.

And here are a couple of pics of her first evening at home, which by the way, was Sunday night. I think this little family has had enough time in a hospital room and with James needing his chemo, it just made sense for them to be released. Adrianne's bilirubin numbers were right on the edge of keeping them there another night, but all things considered the dr. let them leave.
They will need to go in on Tuesday to check on that. Please pray that she does not develop any further jaundice. Maybe a little old fashioned sunlight through the windows combined with our prayers will do the trick. I just think it would be simpler if those numbers were perfectly acceptable on Tuesday. Also pray for Adrianne to be a fast learner when it comes to nursing and all that entails, as well as sleeping for a few hours at a time on her mom and dad some much needed rest.
In case you wondered, Greg is able to be off for a few days and James' next clinic visit at MDA is on Wednesday.
