Today Emmy meets Reagan & Paige 07/13/10

Today I had Reagan, Paige and Tallulah for a little while. Molly had to take Emmy into see the Pediatrician. When they got back Reagan got to hold Emmy and Paige sat next to her in awh... Emmy had gained 4oz just overnight, Molly said the hospital had her on a schedule of 2/5/8 & 11 o'clock feedings so Molly has been pumping on that same schedule therefore making the transition at home very easy to say the least!! Molly is such a sweet and very loving mother. She said Emmy didn't cry all night, just makes little noises when she starts to wake or is ready for a feeding.. I am so glad she is home... She is such a peaceful baby. Tallulah was gentle (with help) when introduced to her baby sister and I think she is going to adjust just fine.

Grandpa showed up for lunch and received some warm hugs and loves from his grand-daughters. He also held Emmy for the 1st time since coming home from the hospital.

Emmy Karma (07/07/10)

I met Molly at the hospital today, Emmy has been in the "Not so critical" area of the NICU since the night Molly was discharged. Emmy is doing so much better, she has been off the oxygen for a couple of days and they gave her for the 1st time a bottle of breast milk this morning...Molly and Sean spent the morning at the hospital and I took care of Tallulah, then I handed off Tula to Sean and went to the hospital to see and hold Emmy and help Molly in anyway that I could..Molly got to breast feed Emmy for the 1st time at approximately 3pm this afternoon.. Emmy took to her breast immediately, it was so natural at instinctive.. God willing they will remove all the wires and set Emmy free to just be the perfect, capable baby girl that she is. Her bellirubin count for (jaundice) is in a low range of the scale and that is a non-issue now. Emmy has lost a little weight, but is a strong eater and I have full faith she will be coming home in a couple of days..

Emmy Karma Ireland 07/02/10

WOW!! July started off with a bang!! Molly started having contractions on July 1st in the afternoon, she said she slept through the night no problem. The next day she had a play date with girlfriend's down in Newport beach, the contractions never stopped, then she started bleeding.. called her doctor and was told to go into the hospital and get checked out, perhaps an injection to stop the contractions since the scheduled c-section was for July 30ish, so off to Memorial hospital she and Sean go..after the 1st try to stop the contractions didn't work, in fact Molly said they proceeded and got stronger, so they tried again and again it was decided this little girl was coming today!! I was giving Tallulah and Paige a bath when Steve came into the bathroom and gave me the news.. Molly wanted me..I'm on my way. Molly was in good spirits considering she's delivering a month early but we were all excited and anticipating the best. Just after 7:30pm they escorted Sean to the delivery operating room and told us to go to the nursery, the baby would be out in about 20minutes, so myself with Chris and Lea (friends of Sean & Molly)waited by the nursery for the baby to come out with Sean.
And out they came, Sean a big smile on his face, Emmy Karma Ireland was here.. Molly went to recovery and we found out Emmy weighed in at 5 lbs 15 oz and is 19" long..great weight for a month early.
After about 1/2 hour they decide to move her the NI CU because she isn't taking in enough oxygen.
So now we wait.. as of yesterday she was already doing much better, she's working at getting fluid out of her lungs and they've moved the amount of oxygen from 100% to 60%.
Molly was de-wired last night and got a shower, she looks amazing!! not sure when she'll come home, I know she doesn't want to come home empty handed.. well wait and see.
Steve and I are so excited to be grandparents for the 4th time now and couldn't be more proud!

Emmy Karma Ireland has arrived
