Our Princess Has Arrived!

Adrianna Jo Rust is finally here!
On June 12th, 2008 and 6:52 pm, our lives were blessed when our daughter Adrianna made her appearance into this world. She was 8lbs 50z and 20 1/4 inches long. She had a full head of hair and big, chubby cheeks. Born by c-section, she was the most beautiful thing that I have ever seen - even before she was cleaned off! :-)

Cameron is in love with his daughter! For awhile, I didn't know if I would ever be able to hold her because she was always in his arms!

We came home on Sunday and have been enjoying the start of parenthood. Sadly, Adrianna does have jaundice - a common condition for c-section and breastfed babies and we are working like mad to get it under control. We do have to supplement formula as well as take her out in the sun, which she just loves.

Enoughs enough - Let me introduce you to our daughter, Adrianna:

Good morning, all!

I started this blog because I realized that many family and friends do not have Myspace and I wanted to have a place where even those we love from far away can share with us the beautiful experience of becoming first time parents as well as the different obstacles that life throws at us.

I will be posting regularly, but with Adrianna making her appearance in this world quite soon, it may be quieter during the first few weeks. We just want to let you guys know that we love all of you dearly!
