She is so PERFECT was my initial reaction when I saw Demeigh for the first time. Weighing at 7lbs 9oz and 20 inches long, her skin was rosy and her hair was soft. She even had some cuddly rolls already, probably since she overstayed her due date. While on vacation in Vietnam, I was wondering if she would come before I get back; I like to think that she waited for me. Ever since I took Hannah and Dylan's Maternity Photos I couldn't wait to see the little miracle that would join their little family.
With much love, Hannah and Dylan had picked out the perfect first outfit for her. A little peach color tutu skirt, a shirt with her name on it, and the cutest little turban. Baby girl's clothes are the cutest!! Hannah is going to have so much fun dressing her up and have matching mother-daughter outfits. They already have matching robe and swaddling blanket!
One thing I'm super impress by was how great Dylan was at being a dad. He stepped up to the plate and really nailed it. While I was there, I witnessed one of the best swaddle I've seen. He had asked the nurse to help swaddle Demeigh since he didn't believe he could do a picture-perfect swaddle for the photoshoot, but Demeigh was so strong she wiggled out of it. He took it upon himself to attempt to swaddle her and I don't know what he did, but right afterward she was calm and went to sleep right away. That skill will come in handy during the first month when they are sleep deprived. Demeigh REMAINED asleep even though we moved her so many times! Now that's a good swaddle!
Hannah and Dylan--I'm so happy for you! Demeigh is so precious. I hope you SAVOR every moment with her since it goes by so fast. She will grow and change in a blink of an eye. I hope you fall in love with each other all over again as you witness each other grow and change into your new role of being mother and a father.
With much love,
