While the doctors considered allowing the baby to stay in her cozy home for at least another week, Mom wasn't tolerating being pregnant very well and the only cure for what ailed her was an early eviction of her daughter. The two of them combined to give all who love them a big scare, but this morning all is well and somehow the Detroit area seems a little like paradise.
It was hours and hours and hours before anyone was allowed to hold this sweet little baby. We finally got this picture by text several hours after
Even the electrodes on her chest are cute. Look! They're sheep! Now that's a perfect sign that she'll love all things hand knit and to that end, I'll be casting on a soft little monster for her to snuggle with. I'm really glad I slipped in that trip to B&N to buy The Big Book of Knitted Monsters.
I'm really thankful she hung on for as long as she did and very selfishly, long enough for us to host that baby shower for her. She's nothing if not considerate!
