2 1/2 weeks later!!

Can you believe that Delia is now 2 1/2 weeks old? Time has definitely flown bye. She is doing great when we took her in for her 1 week appointment, it was actually at 9 days, she was up from 7 lbs 11 oz to 8 lbs 1 oz. Dr. Abarca was very impressed with her weight gain, he said that usually they like to see the baby back up to birth weight by 2 weeks and the fact that she has gained is great! She is really filling out, her little thighs are chunking up and she is getting a double chin, I think that this is the only time in life that these are good and welcoming things!! :o)

Lorenzo and Claire really love her, and at times are on the verge of smoothering her with loves. They have to always out do each other; if one gives her a kiss, the other has to give her 2, then the other has to give her 3 kisses and a hug etc... I'm glad that they love her so much, but at times it can get out of control!
I can only image she is thinking, "Man earth life is SCARY!"

She has so much dark fluffy hair!!

Meet Delia Grace!

Monday morning we went in bright and early at 6:30 amto be induced. It was a long day, but by 4:10 pm our little Delia Grace finally came. She weighed in at 7 lbs 11 oz and was 20 inches long. She has lots of dark hair and is absolutely GORGEOUS!! Lorenzo and Claire love her so much, give her tons of kisses, love rubbing her hair and holding her. My sister Kathryn took the kids for us Sunday night through Monday and then again on Tuesday. The kids had a blast at her house. On Monday Lorenzo got bonked in the mouth with a toy lantern and now has a VERY wiggley tooth that he can't wait to pull. On Tuesday, Kathryn brought Claire to us at the hospital because she got smacked in the eye with a board by a little neighbor boy. Luckily her cut didn't need medical attention, just frequent changes of band aids. We came home from the hospital this evening around 5:30 pm. It is so nice to be home. Delia is doing great and is a little love bug!
