Baby Bella is Here!

Bella Brannon Dekel was born on the afternoon of April 7th. I wrote a little bit about her name on my genealogy blog (link here), but we haven't gotten around to posting any pictures yet. So here's a quick photo dump for everyone to enjoy.

Still in the OR, right after the nurses cleaned her up:



In the nursery, getting her first bath:



Kiki has been amazing with Bella and loves to hold her and comfort her:



Since it was Passover, we all got matching seder-plate shirts and a onesie for Bella:



My three girls:



Me and my babies:



Getting ready to go home:



First night at home, girls in matching pajamas:



So as you can understand we've been home for a couple of days and so far I can tell you that this kid is certainly a night owl. She only cries when she is hungry or when she needs her diapers changed, which is pretty much every 15 minutes. She makes the funniest grunts and squeaks when she sleeps and is a very strong baby. She lifts her head up and if she's got her arms or legs bent, good luck trying to stretch them out (for putting on sleeves or diapers). The hospital photographer was shocked when she saw here hold her head up at 3 days.

I can honestly say that I don't remember any of this from when Kiki was born. Which means that no matter what happens, we're all going to be fine in the end, right? Anyway, more pictures later. I am going to try to take a nap.

OMG - Your oldest daughter is so cute with the baby! She'll certainly be playing the big sister role very well!

I hope you can get some sleep! You're going to need it!

Once again - congrats on the adorable new addition to the family! I hope Mom is doing well also!
