Introducing Ada Lily Foley!!!!


Ada Lily Foley
was born yesterday, on her due date,
Saturday, September 19th, 2009
at 11:26am
in St. Petersburg, Florida.
and was 9lbs, 5oz!
She was 20-1/2 inches long.
She fits in with her amazing mom and dad,
(and their "You're Still Hungry?" blog)
by being a good eater!

{*by Guest Blogger, Tiffany Feger. I'm Lindsay, Scott, and Ada's friend. I took some pictures of the happy family of three and am posting some here because their wireless Internet isn't working at the hospital.}

These pictures were taken right when they had been moved to the recovery room. Ada had spent some "kangaroo time" with her mommy, and hadn't been cleaned up yet. There was not much time to unwrap baby Ada to get more pictures because the nurses were busy with Lindsay an Ada, but you can get a good sense of what it was like to be with the exhausted, hungry adorable new family.
First picture, getting acquainted
yawnresting Is she smiling at her Daddy?!looking at her daddy sooooooo sweetly and holding his finger The new mommy looking at her husband and babyAda has a good rooting reflex! I love new parents handing babies over
Look at her sweet face! I love it. She only made a couple of peeps, but that's because she was hungry:)
She would go back to being peaceful and happy and learning about her surroundings I was trying to be a fly on the wall. They are naturals at being parents. Ada is so lucky.
They hadn't given Ada her first bath, so she still had the ink on the bottom of her cute feet from her footprints. I had to sneak a peek so I unwrapped her feet.
Scott finally got a break so he could eat a Publix sub and continue the text announcements.
She's so content with her full little belly
And she was so good when the nurse came in to prick her heel.
Lindsay was so tired, after 12 hours of laboring in the hospital.Ni' night, time for me to leave so the 3 Foleys could continue to rest and bond
I already love you, baby Ada, and I can't wait to see you again!

{If you want to see pictures of the day right before Ada's arrival, see Lindsay's beautiful baby belly and the nursery here. The outdoor maternity pictures are here, but she already posted about those.}

Just got your text and came immediately. She's BEAUTIFUL (was there ever a doubt she would be?) and it's WILD how big she is! Just like Scott said, she looks like an older baby more than a newborn. What a cutie!

Oh my goodness, she's so sweet! Those pictures are amazing, you are going to treasure them forever. Congratulations to you all. But I think she looks like a newborn, something about those sleepy half-closed eyes. Very nice work, you two. She's a keeper.
