Grace Kelly Kotter

I got to come home from the hospital today, but it was bittersweet as Grace stayed behind in the NICU. She has overcome the fluid in the lungs, and now has a little extra billirubin in her blood and a distended abdomen. They can't seem to find anything wrong in her belly, after multiple xrays so hopefully they will start to feed today. It is my "mom's feeling" that once she starts on some of mommy's milk it will flush out all the poop and gas that is making her belly big. If it goes well, she should be home in a day or two, and that will be fantastic! She is an adorable girl. She is very calm, and the only sign of fussiness I have seen so far is she got really mad at me yesterday because I wouldn't feed her. She was rooting and showing hunger signs, but we were still on dr's orders to hold off. I am hoping Sunday is a great day!

Our new little scoundrel!

Grace was born on Tues, March 31 at 11:52pm. There was just 8 minutes to spare, as we didn't want an April Fool's baby! She weighed 7lb 13oz and measured 20 3/4 inches long. She is beautiful, seems to resemble Jack at first glance. Jack & Emma met her, and are a bit mystified at the whole thing, but already love her. We look forward to watching her grow!
