Welcome baby Violet!

Violet May Dobratz entered into the world via c-section on 1/12/2011 at 8:04 a.m. and she was pissed!
She was 19 inches long and 6 pounds, 1 ounce.  What a tiny baby!

Everyone recovered well from surgery.

The grandparents were all very proud and excited to meet her.

It's been two weeks and everyone is getting adjusted to the new schedule at home.  V eats every two to three hours.  Most times she sleeps well in between.  Today I was cleared for driving and light exercise by my doctor, so we are starting to walk Violet in the stroller around the neighborhood.  We're hoping that exposing V to sunlight will encourage her to sleep more at night and be more awake during the day.  I think it's a pipe dream at this point.


  1. The blog is a great idea! Post lots of pics. I can't wait to meet her!

  2. Laura & Eric, Congratulations so much! I love that you started a blog. It'll be the first blog ever that I follow. She is so cute and so lucky and so are you both. I am happy you're all adjusting so well. So... Violet's profile says that she follows "Girls Gone Wild's Blog"??? I look forward to more posts! -Jennifer
