Introducing Lydia Grace

I have good news! My daughter, Lydia Grace, is here!

Born August 16, 2012 at 3:13 pm
2 pounds 10 ounces
15 inches long

She was born at 32 weeks 6 days, just hours short of 33 weeks. I am so thankful to say that Lydia's health is excellent given how early she arrived. She is in an incubator to help maintain her body heat because she's so tiny, but she's not on a ventilator, no IV, no oxygen. She is small, but she's growing every day.

Sleeping beauty.

Little cutie pie.

Waving "good morning" to daddy.
Over the next few days, I am hoping to gather my thoughts concerning the weeks that led up to her birth. I have notes on my phone, jotted in notepads, and written in emails (sent to many of my readers), but I want to capture the story here.

Hey Lisa,
thanks for posting these absolutely precious pictures! I look forward to reading more of the story. I was so shocked to get your email after what I thought had been a very smooth pregnancy. So glad you are both ok!! (better than ok!)
