Even More Baby Photos

Here are the baby photos taken by camera (rather than phone camera).



Elizabeth's first photo ever...

and her second.



Weighing in. Little bit of coning of her head from the long delivery (14 hours, then C-section). 8lbs 15oz. 19 3/4". And for Mike L.'s sake, the baby was born at 7:08 PM and her APGARs were 8 and then 9.



I want my momma!

Taking her into the OR to see her mom (and mom to see her).

Mom meets baby. Sarah had to do a Caesarian because the baby's blood supply was being choked off with each contraction after Sarah was dilated to ~4cm. The cord was wound all around Elizabeth, her neck and body. But everything turned out fine in the end. Sarah is doing great. She's been up and about most of the day.



Grandma Hamm and Elizabeth get acquainted.

Getting ready for a meal. Elizabeth has been doing quite well, in spite of having to wait over two hours between delivery and her first meal. She has a great nursing reflex.


Dad changing diaper. She had three poopy diapers today and twice she produced enormous quantities of black sludge as she was changed. She went through a lot of diapers. It makes it more fun when you have to deal with a puddle of goo as you work.


Now she's sleeping.

The End.

Thanks for posting the pics, and thanks for the specs (including APGARs)! What a cutie! We're glad to hear mom and baby are doing well, and we're sorry to hear that Sarah had to go through both labor and a c-section.

Congratulations Sarah and Ben! She is adorable. That's great that everyone is doing well. I had almost forgotten about the "sludge" diapers. :) They don't last for too long.
