Beautiful Baby Girl - Lillian Victoria Perez

It is such a weird place to be...watching you first born have his first born...you wait, you wring your hands, you read but can't concentrate, you worry that things will go wrong, you pray, you text your friends, you bring food for the nurses, you get lunch for your son, you watch the FHR strip and try to be a mom not a nurse ("come on little baby -don't be dropping your little heart rate.."). Thank goodness you know the nurse and trust her to take care of your loved ones.
Then finally after 18 long hours and very little cervical change the doctor decides to do a C/Section. Thank God - we want a healthy mom and healthy baby...

So here is Jon and Kim getting ready to meet their baby: Waiting while Kim is moved to the OR:
Jon FINALLY brings out the prettiest little girl for all of us to meet! She had quite the crowd waiting to meet her, Buzz and Me, Granddaddy Randy, Nani and Poppi Wright, Uncle Trevor and his girlfriend, Uncle Josh and his wife plus cousins Griffin and Parker. Jon is crying, we all cry and the baby, with its eyes wide open, thinks she has the bestest family:

The happy, if not exhausted mommy Kim:

Announcing:
Lillian Victoria Perez
Born 1/29/08 @ 8:10pm
weighs 6-15 and is 19 inches long
Aww...she is pink, has all 10 toes, 10 fingers, a nice round head and is healthy!

Being held by her mommy in the recovery room prior to nursing:

She is just beautiful!

Welcome to the world baby Lilly!
We promise to love you and take care of you for a life time. And I can't wait to snuggle you again and kiss your little toes and rub nose to nose with you. I am so blessed to be your grammy!
And thanks Jon and Kim for the best gift you ever could have given me - your little girl is just adorable!
