Sofia meets Sabine

Sabine has been very sweet with Sofia and often asks about "the baby".

The first meeting went well, with a little sliver balloon bribery.

The new family.

Look at those giant feet!

Meet Sofia

Sofia was born at 2:40 am on Thursday, June 3rd. Both she and Heather are doing great. Heather started labor at around 4pm and we went in to the hospital at around 10:30 pm. It was a relatively easy labor and birth (especially compared to Sabine) and she came out lickety-split. The doctors and nurses were running for their glove and gowns, it was pretty amusing.

Heather was a real champ through the whole labor. She didn't cry or scream or swear, just huffed and puffed through the contractions. I thought the contractions must not be that bad until the nurse asked her how her pain was on a scale of one to ten. One being fine and ten being the worst pain imaginable. I couldn't believe it when she said seven! I would have been begging for mercy at four...

Sofie is 7 lbs and 19 inches, which is 1 lb and 1 inch smaller than Sabine. So far she has been much more mellow than Sabine, which is nice! She is a sweet little girl.

Oma to the rescue

Well, turns out we were wrong, but we really thought Nuevo was coming early, so we asked Oma to fly in a week ahead of time. It worked out well nonetheless, as she and Bine quickly re-bonded.

Car trouble!
