Her First Day In The Garden

Please visit and like my new facebook page Georgia Home Garden.

It has been a memorable week for me.  The birth of my second baby girl is something I will never forget.  Unfortunately she has a pretty tough case of jaundice that we have been battling all week. 

Today during one of her fussy moments I decided to take her out in the sun for a few minutes.  Sunlight is supposed to help with jaundice.  I showed her all my vegetables: tomatoes, squash, snow peas, corn, lettuce, spinach, and peas.  She was quite the listener and before I knew it she was asleep on my shoulder.  My wife snapped this photo and I thought I would share.

God bless and I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter!

Congratulations on your new daughter. Jaundice goes away pretty quick. 2 of my 3 had it at birth.

That is one awesome picture! You'll have to make a copy of that one for your office.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments and the well wishes. Just an update, she still has jaundice and her numbers aren't coming down.

Worst case scenario would be we have to get readmitted to the hospital to have the more powerful light therapy done. We had that done for our first daughter. We know everything will turn out ok in the end, it is just a pretty big inconvenience now because we have to take her to the hospital every day to get lab work done.

What a precious moment. Good luck withthe jaundice.

rmgales - Thank you, we finally are on the back side of the jaundice. Her numbers came down enough to where we don't have to do lab work or light therapy anymore.
