Here she is joining some of the rest of the sisterhood (note how Benny is the first to discover her charming little toes):

And here is a little video where nothing much happens except a little, little girl does her elegant, anemone ballet. She is about twelve hours old here, and this is her basic daytime personality, calm and alert:

She is very responsive, but placid, and she is our heart’s delight. I’ll have more pictures up later. We came home Thursday morning and are having a good day with nothing on the schedule but taking turns holding her, admiring her hairy ears, her silky cheeks, her sweet smell

and of course her no-neck. She is called Corrie, Coco, Nellie, Rocky and sometimes Benny (oops). We are so grateful for everyone’s prayers and good wishes! More later . . .

    She is so big! 🙂 All that good growing up to the due date…she is beautiful, and so are you (right after birth! wow!). It’s fun to see how she looks like a Fisher sister already. And what a great name! Cool, classic, and strong all at once. God bless you all in this new special time!

    Ooh, Corrie, I like that! I always have had to try on nicknames with each kid for awhile before I find the right one.

    She is very sweet.

    Sorry, that’s my reaction to ALL babies: I’m also sitting here clapping and hopping up and down in my chair…because BABY!!!

    (BTW, as a guy who was a 3lb-6oz, 9-in, 29-week premmie, I still get confused at the size of ‘normal babies’ – they’re HUGE!!!)

    • my baby (who is five…sob) was a four pound 32 weeker- the fattest baby in the NICU….she came home triumphantly at 6.5 pounds

  • She’s beautiful! Congratulations! And she shares a birthday with my oldest son (he turned 7). 🙂 I love her name, too.

  • Lydia

    Hooray! Congratulations!

  • Congrats on that beautiful baby!! Gee, it doesn’t seem too long ago when little Benny came into the world. 🙂

  • ImTim
