Sara Angelina Nicole Engel was born March 1st at 8:27 pm. 5 lbs 0 oz, 19 inches long. Very little hair, dark. And right now her eyes are blue but they may change as she grows. Shes very small, being 1 month premature but very healthy. She had no trouble breathing at all, which is what I was worried most about since shes premature. We had to stay in the hospital until yesterday because my blood pressure was still high and she developed jaundice. But she quickly got better and now we are home. Its GREAT to be home. Spending 2 weeks in a hospital really takes a toll on you.
My first night with her at home was a little rough. Chad stayed with us to help out. I couldn't get her to sleep in her crib so I had her sleeping on my chest. She woke up a few times to feed and to be changed but it wasn't so bad. I was just REALLY sore and tired. Whats funny is she fell asleep today in my mom's arms and she put her in her crib and she slept for 3 hours! When I put her in the crib, she slept for 5 minutes and then cried. I am so not a pro at this. I'm thinking I'll have my mom put her down to sleep since shes so great at it.
Well, I have to go tend to my baby. I just wanted to let everyone know how we were doing!
