Sydney Caroline Peña
Sydney was born on Monday, January 3rd at 7:21 am. She weighed 7 lbs 6 ounces and was 19 inches long. Her delivery went very well for me, but apparently not so well for Syd. Sydney wasn't able to get rid of all the amniotic fluid in her lungs before coming out, which made it very hard for her to breathe initially. They whisked her away to the nursery to put her on oxygen and take a few tests. The test results indicated infection in her little body and so the doctors admitted her to NICU and put her on a 7 day antibiotic cycle. It was really really hard to have her in there, but the nurses were incredible and she recovered completely. We are SO happy to have her home. She is such a sweet little angel. We really adore her.
