Maribelle Rose Moorhead
Making an earlier-than-expected entrance into the world, Maribelle Rose surprised us all Tuesday, January 13, 2009, at 3:27 p.m., weighing in at 5lbs, 8.9 oz and measuring 18.5 inches in length.
Being a premie born at 35 weeks, Maribelle has a mild case of Respiratory Distress Syndrome and is currently in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) to receive oxygen and antibiotics. She's doing just fine, and Jeremy and I have been making frequent visits to talk to, hold and touch her. With a strong heartrate and vitals, we're hoping Baby M will be able to come home with us in the next week or so.
