I have had the most wonderful week!
It started off (Tuesday) a bit stressful with an early morning call from our SIL.
Our daughter had delivered a baby girl 6.5 weeks early!!
Of course I was frantic at first but was quickly reassured that both were doing exceptionally well!
Thank you God!
I quickly pulled myself together and rushed off to Canberra
to welcome the new addition and to see for myself that all was well.
This is what I found......
I love her name....but I love our beautiful new granddaughter more...
Mummy, Daddy and Zoe...... isn't the love so obvious :)
Zoe came into the world in a big hurry
weighing 4lb 9oz (very good weight considering),
cried right away and has not needed oxygen at all,
being tube fed as she cannot suck yet.
Isn't she just perfect!
She is 10 hours old in these photos.
My DD has been discharged but Zoe will remain in the special care nursery
for approximately 3 weeks - until she is sucking well enough.
Zoe is DD and SIL's first child so living between the hospital and home
will be slightly easier than if they had another one at home.
I cleaned and washed and cooked for them for several days
and will return in about a week to do more of the same,
so they can spend all their time with Zoe.
We are so very blessed!
I have more stitching to show next time
Thanks for stopping by
and happy stitching
