My Sweet Emma

This was after her first acutal bath in the tub. She didn't like it so much but she was happier afterward. Plus we just love this towel on her ;op

No more hoses and we are very happy about that!!

When we went to her appointment the Dr said she did not need the oxygen anymore, she weighed 8lbs and 8oz so she gained 10 ounces in a week and a half from when we left the hospital, and she is in the 60% range in her head, weight, and length. We get to go back for her 2 month appt and then we get shots (lucky mom :os). But as you can see she is doing great!

Emma Kristine Petersen

Emma is finally here! She was born on September 27 at 8:25 am. She weighed 8 lbs 3 oz and was 20 in long. I was going to be induced on Monday the 28th along with 8 other women so the hospital was going to be busy and we might have not been able to be started that day anyway. Saturday I started having contractions and by that night we were headed to the hospital. I was quite the eventful delivery. Emma had stained the amniotic, wrapped the cord around her neck, and aspirated the fluid when she came out. She had to stay in the NICU while in the hospital. Brock and I were discharged on Tuesday and Emma had to stay til Wednesday morning. Here are some pictures of the steps along the way to getting her home.
