Cora's First day!

I absolutely love the look on my moms face, the joy in her expression helped me to get through this. I was very glad that she was able to be there with us for this miraculous event. I'm also very grateful that you can't see the look on my face .
Dr. Firth asked Devin if he would like to cut the umbilical cord. He repied,  "I think you can handle that."

I was suprised by how he just kind of threw Cora at me. I almost didn't have time to react. I thought I was going to drop her!

They gave Cora a very fast rub down.
Then quickley took her out of my arms to do the testing on her.

Cora is one small baby girl. Modest too. See how she keeps her legs crossed so you can't see her girly parts. Also look and see that she is mostly purple with just one section of her body pink.
One quick family photo and they ripped her from my arms to do more tests. Telling me since RSV is hitting they are doing all the check in the NICU. Something fishy was up and I was oblivious. I was
just so happy to have my girl.
Cora went to the NICU and is waiting for the Lifeflight medics to come take her away.
Her adorable little foot, very purple, yet very cute:)

My fat Belly!

Dear Friends and Family that actually follow my blog, I give you my sincere apologies for not keeping you up to day with the events going on in the life of the Reeder family. I have been a bit pre-occupied with Cora. It's amazing how fast they grow. My last posting was that of my sister's doing. Since then I have had many people ask me to post more pictures of my fat belly this will be only that. I hope you find these amusing and some comical:) My pregnant photos were taken by my sister Emily, on April 13, nine days before Cora was born!

This one was taken because during my entire pregnancy I had to go to the bathroom ALL THE TIME!!

Look closely you can see a slightly pained expression on my face, I was having a contraction in the middle of this photo.  I was in labor for more than two weeks.

I almost didn't put this one up because I didn't want my bare belly being seen by the entire world, but then I thought, anyone who reads this most likely knows me well enough to not be offended by this photo. You can see the line that goes down the middle great in this pic!
