All Cleaned Up

She's all cleaned up, and ready to go home...we wish.


Today she had an echo and nothing has changed from her prenatal diagnosis.  She still has an AV Canal defect & will need surgery most likely around 3-6 months to correct her heart.  However, right now her heart looks great & she's cleared to go home with no heart issues.  We'll follow up in 2 weeks with our cardiologist.


She was nursing like a champ this morning, but after two blood draws and an echo...she's exhausted.  I'm not kidding this girl is comatose.  So getting her to eat is a priority right now.  Luckily the two wizard Grandmas made this happen & baby girl took a bottle for now.  I am nursing, but however she needs to eat works for me at this point.


She's a bit jaundice so she's on a billirubin mat right now getting her tan on.  Right now the goal is to get this taken care of in St. Louis so we don't have issues at home, so they are thinking maybe Monday we can go home.


She's beautiful!  Her hair is a straight up Mohawk...that starts in the middle of her head.  Her bangs remind me of when Aubrie cut hers off to the scalp...the are very very short.  The back of her hair is long...a party in the back!


Isn't she fantastic!  I know I know...Jade & I do make pretty babies!

  6. I miss her already. She did smell great and she is beautiful. Can't wait til she's home. I may have to spend the night just so I can hold her like I got to do when Aubrie came home from the hospital.

  13. miss ollie is just a DOLL! so stinkin cute...i must say i am a bit jealous, i miss the itty bitty baby stage :) will be praying for her heart...and email me if she continues to tire nursing. a nurse here told me about something when miss maggie was tiring out and not gaining weight...but we got there and she nursed until she was 16 months old! (and might have a little longer had not been for her sharp little teeth ;) so happy for you and you truly have no idea of the blessings you are about to find in that magic chromosome :)
    ....how many smiley faces are too many in one post? but i could not help myself!

  17. I have gotta tell you that I have been quietly reading your blog and following your journey. It brings me back to the birth of my son Sean, 25 years ago...he too has that perfect extra chromosone...makes him who he is today.

    Ollie is so beautiful, so tiny and yet, so very much loved. I hope to be able to continue to follow Ollie's progress as she grows into a beautiful sweet young woman. Congratulations on your new bundle of joy.

  19. Annie, Ollie looks so happy and content and just beautiful. It doesn't surprise me that since you were celeb-preggers that your baby would be baby-celeb and go right to a tanning bed! Get lots of rest and {{hugs}} to everyone. Ann
