Almost 5 days old!

Molly Jo had her 5 day home-visit today!  She's weighing in at 7lbs and 5oz (she was 7lbs, 14oz when she was born) and doing really great!

Nanci told us that, after the birth, Molly Jo's heart stopped for about 10 seconds. She truly is a miracle baby! I'm so thankful for the Lord's hand over our birth, for wonderful midwives, and for this sweet little bean!

Some people have asked if this had made us fearful of homebirths. Actually, this has made me all the more enthusiastic! Seeing our midwives do their job so calm and well was very encouraging.  Midwives are very capable of dealing with many of the risks and whatnot that arise.  Also, had we given birth in the hospital, Molly Jo would have been taken away from us and been under monitoring in some other room.  It would have become far more stressful for us!

Little Molly Jo Jubilee is breathing well, and our nursing relationship is fabulous! (She's quite the eater!)  She's an alert and sweet baby.  We're very blessed!

She has a sweet profile but I want to see a full face picture! So far she resembles Merika but it's hard to tell with just the profile pic.
