This is our new darling little Sofia Elizabeth Lindberg!! Born last night, January 14, 2009, at 9:45 PM, weighing 7 pounds 2 ounces and 20 1/2 inches long. We think she is absolutely adorably THE cutest little baby girl. Honestly, she has the softest skin you would ever want to kiss! OK, so we are very proud grandparents!! Anyway, here is a short photo clip of the days events......
Here's Jami just before we got in the car to head for the hospital yesterday morning. It was funny cause she made Mike stay home to finish his appraisals so I drove her to the hospital while Frank babysat Hanna who is very sick with the respiratory flu (she's been sick since last Sunday). So we climbed in the car with our Mocha's, stopped at the bank for Jami to make some deposits and then drove the 1/2 hour to the hospital sipping our coffee!
Here's Jami, all smiles, tucked in bed awaiting the medication to get things started. Little did she know what was to come!!
Jami and Mike surprised Brean and bought her a ticket to fly in for the birth. Bre arrived just about an hour and a half before the birth. Here's Dr. Bre getting ready for the big event!!
After about seven hours in the hospital and 4 crocheted baby hats later, Jami's water broke with a loud pop and she went into aggressive labor. Things starting progressing very quickly when she was told that she needed to try to hold on cause the Dr. had just been notified and she was a 25 minute drive away!! YIKES!! We weren't sure Jami was going to be able to hold off until the Dr. arrived, but she was a trooper and kept her calm and made it. As soon as the Dr. came through the door Jami was ready to deliver. Sofia came quickly and Auntie Bre cut the cord. It was an incredible experience for all of us.
Daddy Mike was speechlessly proud and Baby Sofia was wide-eyed and calm as could be.
Mommy didn't waste a moment texting the news to her friends! Did this woman really just give birth????
Auntie Bre was so excited to see a live birth (she has had 2 C-sections under anesthesia). This night will forever be etched in her memory as one of God's miracles.
Sofia was wide awake for several hours after she was born. She makes the cutest little mewing sounds when she is awake and asleep. We think she looks a lot like her daddy and sister, Hanna.
Today I just had to get a picture of her in one of the headbands I made her. She told me she just loves it and put an order in for several more in different colors!!!So tonight Frank and I are basking in the joys of grandparenthood. I doubt that life can get much better then this. We love, love, love our wonderful daughters and their amazing husbands, but we don't think that anyone can quite live up to the deep affection and incredible love that we have for our 4 adorable grandchildren. We feel so blessed to have this close-knit, affectionate family. We just pray that God will protect and guide these little children and keep them in his care. These little people are definitely "the icing on the cake".
