G is for .... GEMMA!!

After nine months of eager anticipation we are proud to announce the arrival of Gemma Grace Davis. Born September 24, 2010 at 9:47 PM. She is such a good girl she arrived right on her due date, weighing 7 lbs 6 oz and 20 inches long. She was born a mere 4 1/2 hours after we arrived the hospital and we were thrilled to be able to go home the next afternoon.She surprised us by being smaller than her sister (Lily was 7lbs 12oz and 20 inches). She was estimated to be 7lbs 10 oz at her ultrasound a full 10 days before she was born so we thought she might be near 8lbs. A petite surprise!

She has a very petite face with a different shape than Lily and different nose. We haven't decided who she looks like, any ideas folks?
Not the best photo but below is Lily at hospital on the day she was born.Lily came to the hospital the next morning with Grandma and Grandpa England. She was very happy to see Mama and interested to meet "baby sister". So far she is doing great. She has some interest in Gemma but is not overly smothering. She likes to hold her for about a minute and then quickly bores as sister doesn't really do much at this point.
We are quickly adjusting to life as a family of four!! Stay tuned for more photos as our first week with Gemma continues. Thank you all for your warm congratulations and well wishes. We are getting just enough sleep and lots of snuggles!
