Gracie Lucile Beddes

Gracie Lucile Beddes was born on Monday Oct. 12, 2009. She is a little stinker and decided to come 4 1/2 weeks early and breech. The doctor tried to turn her but she would not budge so she was born via C-section at 7:43 p.m. She was early but she still weighed in at 6 lbs. 9 oz. and was 19 1/2 inches long. She is in the NICU because she had a hard time breathing on her own at first so she was on CPAP land on IV fluids. They took the CPAP off at 8 yesterday morning and she has been doing great. We just pray that she will continue to improve and get stronger. The doctor says she will be in NICU for at least a week and we will just play it by ear to see how she does. She is a cutie and we can't wait to bring her home. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers in her behalf.

She's darling, darling, darling!!! I can't believe all that hair! I miss that newborn stage sooo much. That is one phase that flies by too fast. I hope she continues to improve.
