Welcome to Sweet Molly Rose Cooke
After a long day yesterday, Laura and Andrew were very happy to welcome a beautiful new baby girl, Molly Rose Cooke!
I took Lucy to Columbia and we waited for the new little sister to arrive.
Lucy's Grandma Sue was busy with Lisa's baby, Lydia, while Lisa was taking pictures in the OR.
Little Molly arrived by C-Section, just like her big sister, Lucy. Laura did everything right, made all the right choices, had an excellent midwife, but in the end it was discovered that Laura really does have a problem with the shape of her pelvic bones, and the babies can't engage properly. This time however, there was no induction, there were no drugs and Laura was able to progress through half of her labor. That was really great for her. Her surgery this time was very relaxed, very simple and there was no fetal or maternal distress.
Molly arrived at 8:15 pm. 8 pounds, 21 5/8 inches of healthy, perfect baby.
As you can see, she has her own look.
She took to nursing so easily and she is very busy doing all the things that new people have to do.
Lucy was very taken with her new sister. She held her right away.
John, Paul and Brendan are quite smitten as well.
