Addison "Addy" Faith Ferraro (baby D) was born last. She was located on the top right under Meryl's ribcage. She is the smallest of the group. Her arm is slightly bigger than my index finger. But, make no mistake about it, she is strong. She had to fight the most inside the womb to get nutrients since she had the slowest cord blood flow. But, upon arrival, she was doing the best of them all. She didn't need any assistance breathing with a CPAP, and she was the first to suck a pacifier. She also has the biggest eyes and always opens them to look at me when I hold her hand. I am planning on spending some quality time holding her later tonight. She has already started small feedings (2-5 ml per feed - about 1/2 to 1 tsp per feeding).
Stats: Addison was born at 11:04am, weighing 3 lbs, 1 oz and measuring 16 inches.
Great job Addy!!
