Celes Marie Burgess is finally here!

Celes Marie Burgess was born June 21, 2010 at 5:44 pm. She weighed 7 lbs 2 oz and was 19 1/2 inches long. She is such a good baby and we love her!

This picture was taken about 15 minutes after I gave birth. I still hadn't gotten to see her yet because she wasn't wanting to breathe. When they broke my water, there was a little bit of meconium in the fluid so they called in a respiratory therapist to examine her right after birth. They had a little trouble getting her to breathe because she had so much mucus and fluid in her. After about 30 minutes, I got to finally hold her.

This is Josh getting to see her for one of the first times.

This is her right after they finished suctioning her.

This is her 3 days old. She loves to lay like this so we had to take her picture! Every time we lay her down or hold her, she immediately goes into this ball. She loves to cuddle! She is SO cute!


  1. Congrats!! She looks beautiful!

  2. Oh my gosh, she's so cute! Congrats to all!

  3. Oh I could just look at her and look at her.
    She is such a sweet baby.
    Ali, get some rest...take it easy and know that all of us love you guys so much.

  4. Can you believe she is already a month old!
    Crazy how quickly time goes!
