Wrapped in Pooh a special gift from Big Sis Gracie!


JANUARY 12, 2007

We went to the doctor on Monday and once again things looked good so we went home. Well Thursdays appointment was another story. Gabi passed her BPP with no concerns, but once again her doppler readings were up and causing stress on the flow of blood to her brain. Dr. Bennett said we could probably wait until Mondays appointment, but nothing is a guarantee so we should probably go in and start the process. Although that is what we have wanted to hear for so long we were now facing the fact it was really going to happen...oh my goodness we are going to have a baby!
We got checked in and started inducing at 5:30 pm. We were told it probably wouldn't be until Friday evening before we actually delivered. First time pregnancy and the fact she would be 3 weeks early the chance of it taking less than 24 hours was slim to none. Well Gabriele was out to prove to the world she is ready to make her grand entrance and start impressing all of us, and that she did! By 1:30 am I was in the most intense pain...contractions had kicked in and she was almost ready. At 4:15 am we were ready to start pushing, she was born at 4:41 am Friday January 12th, 2007. She is the most perfect little angel I have ever seen. She was definitely the light at the end of the tunnel. It was as if all my fears had disappeared. Seeing her for the first time brought tears to our eyes. We knew instantly that we had been blessed with such a special gift. Gabriele Sheridan Acker 6 lbs. 17.3 inches, our tiny little baby girl finally came and we are so proud of what she is and who she will be!

Proud daddy has to leave a comment. There are about 4 or 5 baby's on the floor and Gabi the one that is supposed to have the most difficult time nursing has been doing the best of all the babies on the floor. Our little angel is already impressing us on a minute by minute basis..She is an amazing angel that will light up every day of our lives!
