Beach Vacation
If you haven't seen on Facebook, my still-nameless Baby Girl was readmitted to the hospital this afternoon for high bilirubin levels.  She's doing fine - much better than this morning, that's for sure - but I'm still tired of hospitals and anxious to be home at some point...  

Anyway, she's tanning herself under the bili lights, complete with beach sunglasses (blindfold, really).  She's incredibly ticked off about the blindfold, actually - and I don't blame her.  She keeps taking it off, and while I applaud her independent, rebellious spirit, I wish she wouldn't.  We don't need her to have problems with her eyes on top of all this.  She's the fifth baby - she doesn't get to be high maintenance!  (Just kidding - obviously she's already asserted that she'll be the judge of high maintenance.

Here's my precious girl:

I wish I could say yes to the name - but with me here at the hospital, Seth can't get to shul in the morning since he's taking care of the other 4. By the time the nanny gets there, he could make the late minyan, but will need to be at work.

Oh, and then there's the fact that we still haven't had time to sit down and figure out what her name *is*!! Details. Yesterday, "Saffron" was the front-runner on account of her complexion (turns out the Hebrew word for saffron is ... safron! so that would have worked out nicely, don't you think?). But she's turning back into a nicely pink, perfect baby again, so we've got to come up with something more... conventional.

meira or liora, obviously ;-)

obviously! She's definitely not a liora, but I like meira. She'll tell us her name sooneer or later...

with the triplets, we came up with girl names pretty quickly but could NOT find a boy name at ALL. With her, it's the opposite. I had some boy names I liked but can NOT find a girl name that fits!

She's glow in the dark, too! hehe

it's so funny, because when I swaddle her, she's so long and skinny with this big round head on the end that I call her my little glo-worm (remember those? Seth doesn't). Little did I know I could actually get the model that DOES glow! :)

I DO remember glow worms! My sister had one! Lucky you, with the high tech model!

When Erin had those glasses, I used to call them "Spaceman Spiff" glasses. Sadly, I"m not sure if anyone remembers where that came from these days...

I'm thinking that's her "No photographs! No autographs!" pose.

OMG she is so ... very adorable. Oh I love this photo. I could just pick her up and give her a little cuddle.

Oh she looks so adorable in there. Like a little baby tanning bed. I love how she has her hand under her chin. And her bottom it glows!!!

I thought she might be the quiet little shy baby of the bunch. But I am beginning to thing she is going to rule the roost.

When I saw the picture of the baby I thought of Ora (light)!
For some reason her glowing bottom reminds me of the blue light for my wireless connection! Maybe now that she's finally out of you she is now using her wireless connection :)

A high bilirubin count, hmmm. Finally! A routine medical issue!
Having said that, I do hope she gets better very quickly! No medical issue is what we're striving for!

BTW, when you have time to post more, I'd love to hear your labor/delivery story! And, I want to hear more about how YOU are feeling! Are you off some of your machines? all of them? How's the eating going? Do you need to get back on food slowly?

Keep the pictures coming!
