It's time!

Ladies and Gentlemen......

It is my honor to present - Rose Victoria Pietromonaco!



Vital Statistics:
Birth Date: Born November 13th, 2007 at 9:30 PM
Birth Location: Swedish Hospital, Seattle WA.
Birth Weight: 7 lbs, 1.7 oz
Birth Length: 18.75 inches
Proud Parents: Dana & Paul Pietromonaco

Dana and I are quite excited and quite exhausted. Her original due date was last week - Monday, Nov. 5th. Since she was overdue, we were planning on starting labor induction tomorrow (Thurs.) - instead, due to some complications, she arrived yesterday (Tues.) via C-Section. Everything is fine, though - Mother and Baby are doing great!

Here's a few more pics:





By the way - those things on her ears in the last photo are not some sort of baby torture device. They're actually part of an infant hearing test. They play soft sounds in her ears, and use the white sensor you can see on her head to scan her brain to determine if she heard the sounds! How cool is that?

Happy Birthday Rose! Mom & Dad love you!

Cheers,
Paul

Congratulations! Now Paul, you need to practice "Baby Hero" (available for Xbox 360 & PS3--comes with innovative diaper controller).

Rena said...

Phhhhht. Baby Hero, ha ha! Yeah, the only problem is that you can't return it to the store. And the game just get harder and harder. We're stuck on the sleep level right now.
