Avery is Born!

We welcomed Avery Renae Wallace on August 13th at 11:24 a.m. She weighs 6 lbs and is 19 and 3/4 inches. She is such a tiny, beautiful baby! Abby Kate loves holding her and talking to her.

We will be in the hospital until Sunday because Avery's oxygen level dropped last night a bit and they are taking every precaution, ordering tests and such just in case. They put her on oxygen briefly and gave her antibiotics and she has been doing really well. She is still hooked up to monitors, so we have had to visit her in the nursery instead of having her here in the room. I go to feed her every three hours.

I'm anxious to post a picture of her, but I'm keying this entry from my Blackberry and it doesn't let me post images. I'll see if my mom will post a picture for us later today. Everyone has said she favors me. I think she does, too.

We appreciate all of your well-wishes, support and prayers. We are anxious to bring Avery home! I'll post a lot more when we get there.

If she looks anything like you then she must be a knock-out! You better lock up both of your sweet babies in about 15 yrs! I would love to meet her and see AK next time you visit. Congratulations! You are all in my prayers!
