Ella Grace: 3 Days Old

Here we are. Ella Grace is now 3 days old (May 15, 2011). Today, we headed to her first doctor's appointment. She had her bilirubin level drawn before we left the hospital the day before because she was pretty jaundiced (as you can see in the pictures). So, we headed to the pediatrician's office first thing Sunday morning. The first thing we learned that morning...it takes about 12 times longer to leave the house with a baby than it did before. We were scheduled to be there between 8-10 a.m. I was shooting for about 8:45ish...BIG fail! The good news...we arrived at 9:50 a.m., ha! So, we did make it in our time frame...barely, but hey it was before 10!





We finally arrive at the doctor

Sadly, her bili level went up and they told us she had to stay on the bili bed for the next 2 days : ( Broke my heart! It was the hardest thing in the world to not be able to hold her when we wanted, which was pretty much all day...

Thankfully though, she was a precious angel while on the bed. She slept all day and night those two days except when she nursed and got changed. Here are some pics of her on the bili bed.







Basically, Ella Grace sums this whole trip to doctor up in this picture...



HaHa! Silly Girl!
