Nicole Brielle
Born on December 4, 2014
Weighed 8 lbs 5 oz and was 21 inches long
(but a couple days after birth she measured shorter
so we do not think that her birth length was taken accurately)
Stayed in the NICU for 5 days for respiratory distress from mild pneumonia
Loves to snuggle
Eats like a champion
 Makes the most absurd faces
Squeaks and grunts like a baby pig
Has the chunkiest cheeks you ever did see
Prefers to sleep deeply during the day rather than at night
Already loves to tease mom by making messy diapers right after a changing

...and has completely stolen our hearts.



  1. Oh she is beautiful! Looks like j
    her Daddy! Sorry she had to do in the NICU.

    1. Everyone thinks she looks like Doug! Haha. The whole NICU thing was hard, but it's over now. I'm just glad it was only 5 days!

  2. Congratulations!!!!!! Motherhood is just the best thing I've ever experienced. It truly gets better every single day..even on the hard ones. :)

    1. It's only been a week and I can already tell that every day gets better! Not necessarily easier, but definitely better :) Thank you!
