Nora Juliet is Here!

So sorry for the delay…our beautiful miracle baby, Nora Juliet, arrived last night after only four hours of labor and a single push. I will write her whole birth story out later when I have time. She was 6 pounds and 15 ounces (much smaller than we thought she would be!) and we still haven’t found out her length yet. We’ve been focusing on all of her other important stats and blood results, which have all been great. She’s been in the NICU since she was born and I’ve been able to go breastfeed her every 3 hours. Nora’s blood results are so good that she hasn’t needed any intervention so far- no blood transfusions or bili lights or IVIG. She is our little hero. Thank you all for your MANY prayers and words of support. We could not have done it without you. I’ll write more later!

  5. She is beautiful and so amazing! I am crying for you, and for the redemption she will bring. She can not replace sweet Lucy, and you might even find that you will endure some hard grieving over Lucy’s death in the first few months of Nors’s life, but I hope that like my little one has done for me, Nora will bring healing to your heart in a way that you had not expected. Big hugs to you, and welcome baby Nora!
