She's Home!!!
Esmé came home Sunday morning. She is doing very well. The midwife came today and weighed her. She is 7.5-her take home weight was 7.3. She is nursing very well -for the Mom's who need to know. :0) Her heart murmur is harder to hear so that is a wonderful improvement. We will let you know how her appointment goes on Friday.
In home nurses

Hospital bath

Sleeping peacefully at the hospital unwired.

Psalm 34:1-3
I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul shall make its boast in the Lord;
the humble shall hear of it and be glad.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
And let us exalt His name together.

That's so awesome! Finally life can get back to normal - if you call life with 3 kids normal! :0)
She's so adorable! She looks like a doll in the picture of Mia holding her.
And Mel, you look great - you'd never know you just had a baby!

Marlene said...

Mel, she is so beautiful. Mia sure looks proud holding her! Wish we could hold her. Glad everything is going so well.

I'm so happy to hear that little Esmé is finally home! What a blessing. And I love the pictures of the girls with her! All three of your girls are beautiful! Thanx for letting me hold Esmé for a couple minutes when I came with Jenn to drop off the meal. It made my day!

Oh Mel, she is adorable. It's so good to have her home finally. Don't forget to take care of yourself, too!

Hey Mel!! Your girls are such dolls! I am so happy for you guys that Esmé is home, we were all praying for her and you guys. God is sooo good!!!! I've been reading your blog for a while (no I'm not a stalker!) but just now started a public blog (I've had a personal one for a while) so I thought I would comment! It seems like it's been forever since we've seen each other! My mom was mentioning the other day that it's Oma's 80th birthday so maybe the family will do something and we'll be able to see each other. I hope you are getting rest and taking care of yourself. By the way, I'm jealous! You don't even look like you just had a baby!!! I still looked pregnant after I had mine! Sorry to take up so much room! Have a great day!!!
(p.s. I've found another way to type the é, since some people have been having problems, just hold down alt and type 130)
