"The Christian family is a communion of persons, a sign and image of the communion of the Father and the Son in the Holy Spirit. In the procreation and education of children it reflects the Father's work of creation." (CCC2205)

Guess who decided to show up quite a few weeks early?

Ahh -- that's right -- my littlest princess. I didn't think for a minute that we'd go to term (as that's not our usual system) but I was praying to make at least February, as she was due at the very end of the month. Alas -- yesterday she decided to knock on the door as ask to come out -- so here she is!


Super cute -- but super small (5#5oz) and not breathing as well as they'd like -- so ... 



To the NICU we go -- She's slowly improving -- she's finally able to eat (via tube) and her chest x-rays are showing slow improvement. This means -- when I leave the hospital -- she will be staying for a while. Hopefully not too long -- we need each other. 

::sigh::

Little T's big sisters are already getting in a few baby pets though -- soon she'll be less a novelty and more a daily part of their lives -- soon soon. Breathe deep little girl.
