Names and such

UPDATE:

PEDIATRIANS REPORT: Baby is healthy with one exception, her hips are loose.  She screams like a banshee when getting her diaper changed, now we know why.  :(  :(  :(  Doc advised double diapering for two weeks to bring her hips in proper alignment.  If that doesn't work, she will be referred to orthopedic surgeon.

Oh yeah...she was born three days after my sister Chris' birthday, May 1, and three days before my Mom's birthday tomorrow, May 7.  How's that for timing?  Although yesterday we were noting how cool it would have been for her to be a Cinco de Mayo baby!!  ;)  But truth be told, it worked out perfectly.

I love her (compromised) name!  I love original names and unusual spellings~yeah, I know I named my girl Grace, but her name is actually an anagram  :)

They used to use casts to keep the hips in place (they may still.... not sure).  The cast had a hole at the bottom for bodily functions.  The brace, if it is the same that I've seen, allows for more circulation, obviously, which is better.  The double diapering technique is the greatest though and hopefully it will do the trick!  I'll keep her in my prayers :)  

She is really beautiful, I just want to hold her and smell that new baby smell  :)

Funny how birthdays run like that sometimes, isn't it?!  My parents, Grace, and myself all have ours within a month's time ;)  

I know you're enjoying her...

She is beautiful.  I am sure that the hips will work themselves to the right position.  Big Hugs, Nicki
