Emily Paige has arrived!
The long awaited arrival of my little sister, Emily "Emmy" Paige, is finally here! She was born on April 8, 2009 at 11:06am. She was a whopping 7 pounds, 13 ounces, and 20 1/2" long! Mommy said she looks just like I did when I was born!
She had a few problems breathing in the beginning after swallowing some fluids during the delivery, so she had to spend 2 days in the NICU. She was on a breathing machine called C-Pap, an IV for fluids, and she had a little drainage tube in her mouth that went into her tummy. When most of her tubes were out, I got to see her for the first time through the window, and I kept saying to the nurse "Open the door please... I hold my baby sister!" She looked so sad there, and mommy & daddy had a hard time, but thankfully she got better really quick, and was able to go to mommy's room after just 2 days!
