Baby News

My cousin's baby, Cassady Viola, arrived Friday at 4:44PM. She weighed in at 4 pounds, 14 ounces and is 18.5 inches long. No red on top but her hair is an odd shade of light brown so we are not sure what color her locks may turn out to be.

She had to be delivered by c-section because she was in distress during contractions. The doctor discovered during surgery that her umbilical cord was tied around her neck twice and knotted which explains the problems she'd been having with erratic heartrate the last week of the pregnancy and during the contractions.

The pediatrician said that she was in great shape just small given the early delivery and the problems with the cord. So she's very tiny and very cute! I took a lot of pictures but did not have a chance to unload them from the camera after I got home last night. I will post them this evening.

I was so glad to be there with my cousin and my aunt as we welcomed our new family member into the world. Oh and the proud papa was around, too, of course. But my aunt and I were the relief team both days so he could go home and get the nursery finished, since baby arrived a few weeks earlier than expected.

Cassady immediately resumed her pre-birth schedule of sleeping all day and partying all night. A night owl just like her mom and dad!

Thanks! I was too worn out last night from the heat and my busy weekend to fool with the pictures. I will definitely do it tonight. (And I am going to be an aunt again!)
