Boy Scout Motto-Be Prepared!

Well, she's here! Abigail Jo Robison was born at 9:02 on September 25, 2011. She weighed 3 pounds and 15 ounces and came out screaming. Sean called us at 2:30 on Sunday morning to tell us that Krysten's water had broken. I told them to go on to the hospital. Their doctor wasn't on call over the weekend and so the on-call doctor met them at the hospital. It was a blessing for us and them that he sent them to the closest hospital where Krysten and I both work, so that we can visit easier and I can see here while I am at work. Dr. Stoll delivered her and then she was whisked off to the NICU because of her being 8 1/2 weeks early.
She is beautiful and I think she looks alot like Krysten and her sister Sarah. They have the same shape of face. Abigail is already good at giving a really nice pout face. She also likes to stretch alot and throw her arms up over her head while she is sleeping. I got to shampoo her hair after Krysten gave her the first bath last night. It was wonderful.

Krysten was very emotional after the delivery. I can understand that, as she had worked very hard and was very worried. There was nothing finer than seeing Sean come out of the delivery room with the baby with tears in his eyes too. He told me today that watching the delivery was pretty amazing!

I went shopping today and bought a few little cute things for her. They are all too big, but she will grow. Today she is off oxygen, cpap and is on room air and still has her feeding tube and IV. She is in an isolette and under phototherapy for jaundice. Her hair is probably going to be curly and is a light brown.

I guess that we should have been better prepared. We haven't gotten the dresser or rocking chair painted, Sean and Krysten were going to be moving this next week, and we haven't had the baby shower yet. Now we will just have to go into high gear.

We love her already!
