Home Sweet Home

Finally after five days in the hospital, we were able to bring our little one home today. Here are some pics taken over the course of the week, from birth to homecoming.

Blue Light Special

We thought we'd be bringing our sweetie home on Wednesday, but the OB wanted Nydia to stay a while longer because of some high blood pressure readings. So another night was spent in the hospital, of course, there was no sleeping involved. Lizzy stayed in the room with us all night. Today we had hopes of bringing her home again, but the jaundice came back. Our little girl is under the lights again. Nydia has been discharged and is staying in the room with Lizzy so she can be breastfed. It looks like it may be a few more days before Lizzy can move in to her new home.

Lizzy Walworth

Here's a few more pics, taken just a few hours ago after a feeding.

We wish you could all be here with us to enjoy this special event!

A Brand New Member to the Walworth Family

She's here! Our beautiful new baby girl! Elizabeth Sophia Walworth was born at 9:23pm Monday night (5/25). She weighed 4lbs 11.9oz and was 17 inches long. We're still in the hospital right now, but we'll be going home sometime tomorrow. Here are a couple of pictures that I have available right now. More to come!

We had a false alarm this morning. Nydia's contractions were four minutes apart for a few hours so we went to the hospital. Sure enough, as soon as we get there, they stop. So we spent a few hours in the hospital. She's now 2cm dilated and having stronger, more painful contractions. It may only be a few more days until we get to meet our new daughter!!

Nydia saw the doctor today and all is well. She's 1cm dilated (same as last week). We'll be seeing the doctor every week now until the big event!
