Sad but true...Alien.

My DS was born at 30 weeks and didn't have much fat so his arms and legs were really skinny. He also had a big head and looked like a little alien. But I was happy that he was much bigger than I had expected.

AWWWWWWW!!!! She was perfect! Then I proceeded to call her the wrong name. I said hello Kaitlyn, her name is Kathryn. I had a friend that had a Kaitlyn.

Harry Potter--

He had a red mark in the center of his forehead between his eyes. My DH had been reading the books to me and baby during the pg so baby could get used to his voice.

With Arielle, it was "Wow" (can't believe I"m a mother now!)

With Chandler it was "Thank you God" (sorry, we were pretty panicked with her!)

With Trinity it was "Small" because she looked tiny to me! But at 20 inches and a healthy 8lbs 9 oz, I guess I wasn't seeing well that night! LOL

Both times it was "Oh my GOD!" With my 1st I was so drugged and just couldn't believe she was here. And with my 2nd I was in tears because she hadn't even been dried off and I was so excited to be able to see her and touch her so quickly after she was born. I remember with my 2nd I just kept saying it over and over and over.

I soooooooooo hope that I get to see this one before he/she is dried off too.
