Tasha and Daisy

Tasha and Daisy have been adjusting to their new roles watching over Caroline.  Despite our crazy new schedule of nursing and changing diapers we have been able to enjoy some of the beautiful fall weather.

Caroline’s first bath

Once Caroline’s belly button had all healed up, we were able to give her her first bath. She wasn’t too happy with it, but she has gotten use to it (we’ve since given her a couple more). She also likes her soft teddy bear blanket to dry off in.

Caroline’s visit with family and friends

Caroline has been able to meet some family and friends now. Uncle Cass was able to come visit on Sunday when Revel’s parents came over and cooked dinner for us. We also were able to do a little video conference with Grammy Cotsford in SC yesterday, and she is excited to be coming up next Tuesday.

Caroline’s first visitors

Caroline had some of her first visitors, starting with Revel’s parents last night. She also got to meet Natalie and then today Revel’s Aunt Susan, Uncle Ben and cousin Alison were able to come by (Caroline is excited to meet Charlotte, Alison’s little girl who is exactly 9 months older then her…but she wasn’t able to come up per hospital rules…but SOON).

Check out some updates to the photo album.

Caroline was excited to meet her grandparents!

Introducing Caroline Cotsford

On Wednesday, Sept 23, 2009..at 11:36pm, Caroline Susan Cotsford was born at Milford Regional Medical Center. She weighed 7 lbs and 9 ounces and was 20 1/4 inches long. Both she and Revel are doing well now and we are very excited to have a new little girl! She has a full head of dark hair (which was suprising to both Revel and I given my red hair and her blond hair, but she looks really great with it).
