Expert medical care

Fiona with Harriet Palmer, the midwife who delivered Fiona at our house and cared for Shelly for the last 5 months. She was wonderful, talented, calm and confident.

Fiona with her pediatrician, Dr. Sonneman. Fiona had her first checkup. Everything is OK. Fiona is also wearing pink for the first time. Dr. Sonneman also cares for Soren. We are very happy with Dr. Sonneman, but we rarely get to see her. Soren has been very healthy.

Puppy returns

Soren's favorite puppy disappeared several months ago. It reappeared the day after Fiona arrived. We are still not sure where puppy went, but Soren should sleep easier now.

This puppy tried to replace Soren's lost puppy. It was rejected by Soren. Perhaps Fiona will find a place for it.

The big brother.

Soren is so excited to be a big brother (and he is big, 39", 38 pounds). He wants to hold Fiona all of the time and is usually willing to help care for her. He is very good at fetching things.

She has arrived.

Fiona has arrived. She was delivered at home by a midwife on Friday. Fiona and Shelly are healthy. She is 20 inches long and weighs 8 pounds, 9 ounces. She is much chubbier than Soren was at birth.
