Caroline Doing Well

Caroline had an appointment with the pediatrician today. Even though they examined her in general, we were particularly concerned about her weight. At the hospital, the nurses told us that Caroline was starting to lose more weight than they would hope. Since she was so small at birth, she did not have much extra weight to lose, even though losing weight is normal for a newborn.

We were very excited to learn that Caroline gained a little bit of weight between Thursday and Saturday, so hopefully she has turned the corner. We made changes to her feeding routine, including more regular feedings and using formula to supplement, so these probably made a big difference.

What a relief!

Caroline Stella Kruepke

We are excited to announce the arrival of Caroline Stella Kruepke. She was born at 5:47 AM on January 13, 2009, which was just a day past her due date. She was 5 lbs. 11 oz. and 18 in. long.

Caroline was delivered by Cesarean section, and both she and Maribel came through it like champs. They are both still doing very well.

We have posted an initial set of photographs in our photo gallery.

Thank you to everyone who kept us in your prayers throughout the pregnancy. We are grateful for your support.
