This is the first time i was able to hold her... it was about 30 minutes after she was born. The medication i was on made my whole body swell up, so thats why my face looks the way it does!! I had to use all the strength i had to open my left eye.



This is what Zaylie would do all night long, she never made a sound, she would just blink and stare at everyone with that look on her face like, "I hope you know how important I am" and sometimes it would look like, "oh great, I was sent to you guys to take care of me, i doomed" her smug looks were the talk of the night, even the nurses couldn't get enough of it.

This doesn't even look like her anymore, she has changed so much in a week its crazy. She gets prettier every day.
