Thea

There are few greater joys in life than the arrival of a new soul in the world. Adele writes: Hey Y'all! Congrats to the Aunties, Uncles and Grandparents of the new little noodle addition to the Jensen clan! Some of these photos are fabulously disgusting of moiself, but as Luke pointed out: its not about me:) And you've all seen me in worse shape....eeeewwwww....... So onto the stuff that actually matters- Thea Jensen Horowitz was born on February 7th 2008, and is stoked she shares her birthday with the beautiful and dynamic Robyn Jensen! She was 5 pounds 9.9 oz, and a rip roaring 19 1/4 inches long! She's got lovely long legs, lucky girl. She was delivered by *emergency* c-section after Mum and Dad spent 2 weeks in the hospital wasting away- I mean waiting for her arrival:) She breathed far too quickly at first as she was so excited to finally get here, and because of this had to be fed by IV because keeping down food, breathing and sucking took a little getting used to. Luckily, our big girl didn't need a ventilator or antibiotics, she just sorted herself out, made it work and we all got to break out of the big house 5 days later; 19 days after we arrived. Today she is 1 week and 1 day old, she passed her first Dr's appointment with flying colours, she's gained 2oz, eatin, sleepin, poopin and peeing like a champ! Keeping us on or toes to say the least, providing the biggest natural high you could imagine. She's so much fun, and never ceases to amaze. Enjoy the photos, there will be plenty more, PLEASE keep my "dignity" in mind when passing them on to people....many more updates to come! Love you guys, Big Mama Adelvis...........xo Adele speaks of her dignity, and I imagine she means photos of her big stomach. There is nothing more worthy of dignity than the sight of motherhood. I asked her permission to include the link to the photos above. She adds: P.S. I'm in a much better state to talk now, so feel free to call or let me know when to call you.

Congratulations Adele and Luke, your girl is beautiful and judging by the photo count you are suitably besotted with her.
From our last experience with Gus, now 17 months, time seems to slow down quite a bit at first with the rhythm of feeding and sleeping and not much seems to happen. But before you know it the developmental milestones click by and you are chasing them round the house. So enjoy her, Helen will no doubt be on the blower again soon. Lurv...Robert
