This is my very last maternity picture for this pregnancy. Ross took this just before I changed into the hospital gown, which was about an hour and half before the C-Section started. I am VERY excited to finally get the cure to my STD. :)Ross was sooooo excited to be here this time around. He was soaking in everything- nothing could take that perma-grin away! He was actually surprisingly brave through the whole thing. I was seriously expecting him to pass out in the OR because he usually has to leave the room when I get shots or have blood taken- he is not big on blood or needles or anything of that nature. I was really impressed when he watched the whole thing go down, and thought it was cool when they pulled out my uterus and pumped her out. I was really glad he was there too. It made all the difference in the world to have him there holding my hand and telling me how much he loved me and how beautiful I was (liar!! oh well- it was the 'right' thing to say). I can't believe I did this all alone last time.
These are out of order- but I can't figure out how to switch them around because I am just not that blog-savvy. Here is Grandpa (Papa) Jones- he is already smitten! Who can blame him though- she is beautiful.
Here is Aunt Heather who is determined to have this niece like her. For some reason this goal was never accomplished with Emma.
Grandma Jones actually got a substitute to take her class for the day just so she could come and meet little Sara- that really meant a lot to me because I know how important this year in school is to her.
I love this man! It melts my heart to see how much he loves our girls.
Sara was NOT happy about the bath she had to take in order to not look like, as Lorelei Gilmore would say, phlegm.
This is where Sara had to spend the majority of her time for the first few days of her life. As Ross explained earlier- we have different RH factors in our blood types, and this caused her to have a pretty bad case of jaundice. She LOVED this little 'sun box'. The nurses all said that they had never seen a baby be so calm and content when put in one. I think she looked pretty cute with her little goggles.
However, the goggled did cause this funny little racoon mask over her eyes. You can see just how yellow she was before they began the treatment.
I love when she clasps her precious little hands.
And I ADORE her sweet little monkey toes- they are so long!
I pretty much just love this little girl! Ross and I are really good at making beautiful little girls. I think I can take a break now though. :)
This is how Emma spent most of her visits to me while I was in the hospital. She got to play with a lot of different realtives that week (thank you to all of you who helped us with that!!!!)- and she obviously enjoyed it, because she came back totally exhausted every time. It was probably better this way though, because she was not the happiest about me being in the bed, and she was really not liking the idea of the new baby. Since then she has adjusted really well, and has been a pretty big help to me at times.
