Birth Certificate! She is official!
I just thought this picture was funny.
Hey! I am awake!
I am so cute.

This is the NICU list. There were only about 10 little babies there which is not very many apparently. That is good for the babies but bad for the nurses who dont get to work.

Putting her in her car seat!
I had to pump for a while before she could eat any milk. So, they sent me home with some of the extras…

Seeing the sun for the first time!

Parental Units

Before we could take Sadie home we had to watch “The Period of Purple Crying”
and “Infant CPR.” Matt was very serious about learning it and practiced on this baby.

It was a little bit of a surprise to have this happen. But we are just grateful that she was healthy.

This is what I got to do two times a week. I sat on a bed and had my contractions
(or lack thereof) and baby’s heart-rate monitored. So exciting.
Hmm. Maybe this is actually from the false labor night…

Blessing Day

Here are some pictures from that day. We had a wonderful turn-out to the blessing at our ward. We took Sadie home and changed her quick.

So quick in fact, that we started before we even got in the house (and before we unbuttoned the back of the dress...)

Afterwards, we went to the Marriott hotel and had a lunch outside on their patio/restaurant area.
Matt did a nice job of getting food and taking care of lunch.
Sadie's Blessing
Thank you everyone for coming and supporting our family.

To the NICU

To the NICU,
We loved our experience
From beginning to end

With all of your help
Our baby did mend
   Doctors, Practitioners,
Nurses and techs

Each did a great job
More than one could expect
Each question was answered
Dissolving the stressful

Your patience with patients (parents of)
Unveils each of you angels
We realize as angels
You don’t walk on your feet

But we got you socks
As our little treat
Thank you for being great
Love Matt, Jamie and HEALTY Sadie Hoffman

New Stroller!

In honor of Matt’s and my first run after giving birth I thought I would write one about our stroller.


We got a stroller for my baby shower from both of our parents. We love it! So does Sadie! Here it is after we just pulled it out.


Reading the instruction manual.


Taking it for a stroll.


Taking turns


Yay Stroller. And thanks parental units.
