it's 10:49 PM, and all i really want right now is to get in my bed, get cozy, and sleep for 20 hours straight, with no interruptions besides maybe waking up on my own, only to realize that i can drift off for another so many hours uninterrupted. next to me on the couch is fern, struggling to breathe through her nasty snot accumulation, and offering up a lame cry. she's wiggling her swaddled body. we're both pathetic.
she has an ultrasound tomorrow at CHOP at 9 AM, to check on her kidneys' fluid levels. part of me is praying the weather will keep us from making the appointment.
now she's trying to latch onto my upper arm. pregnancy does great things to thighs, arms, and chins. let me tell you.
Fern Francis Duffy was born last Friday, January 25, 2008. She weighed 6 pounds 6 ounces, and measured 18.5 inches long. The birth was amazingly awesome, and I got to catch her as she came out and bring her up to my chest!! She is doing great, nursing great and keeping me up at night as expected. It is amazing to look at her little face and hear her little noises. Her big sister is having a tough go of adjusting to her new life, but each day is getting a little easier...kind of. Each morning I'm having to rely on the truth that God's grace is sufficient for today.
