hey addie!

why can’t you poop out like this at 3 in the morning, instead of 3 in the afternoon?

addie’s home!

May 26, 2008


we brought addie home on friday and, needless to say, it’s been a pretty busy weekend for team o’hara. but everyone is doing great! actually, addie is doing great. mommy and daddy are a mess. but fortunately aunt kiki and amie (redubbed crazy grandma) have been doing more than their share of the work and saving our lives. tiff is in charge of figuring out how to work everything, applying her scientific mind to everything from the “light vibes mobile” to breast pumps. grandma is pitching in with all things addie. we’d be lost without them!

hey addie!

today has been a great day! brie and i got some sleep last night because addie was eating so well. brie was up and about quite a bit today and she’s doing very well. addie has been fantastic! she loves looking around at everything (not seen in this picture…), and i’ve finally found someone that doesn’t shout at me when i’m singing.

brie meets addie

May 21, 2008

only a few minutes old and already we’re in love! just look at these two beautiful girls!  we spent a few hours in the recovery room.  rhonda was out in the waiting room so i stepped out briefly to tell her the good news and sent a quick hello to nana as well.  a bit later they let rhonda (amie) and steph into recovery to say hi, then they wheeled us up to our room. 

i’ll point out here that addie is already eating like she’s been at it for years.  not an easy task for any new mom, but brie and addie have knocked it out thus far.  i suppose we should have known our daughter would find eating to be a breeze, though.  give it 6 weeks and she’ll probably be ordering pizzas while we’re not watching… 

they brought us into the OR just before 11:30.  dr. smith was quick to make an appearance, and it wasn’t too long before we were in action.  by 11:52 dr. smith was introducing addie to me!  brie had some work left to do so addie and i danced to the beatles while they finished up.  soon enough we were on to recovery!  mommy and addie both healthy and happy! 

this is just before they came and hauled brie off to the OR. still grinnin. i think i was in scrubs by the time i took this, so she’s probably laughing at how handsome i looked…
