JOLIE'S FIRST DAY
(Click on the picture to see a larger version!)
 

Daddy looks good in a blue hair net.
This is me taking a picture of myself just before going into the O.R.  They leave you out there for 15 minutes by yourself (which seems like about 15 DAYS), so I thought I'd test out the camera to pass the time.

She already passed her first test...Apgar scores of 8 and 9 out of 10.  Way to go Jolie!
This is the first picture of Jolie that Bev is allowing for public viewing - taken just a minute after birth.  There were about a dozen that I took before this one just as the baby was coming out of Bev's belly.  Lots of blood and guts - cool!  Jolie was VERY healthy from her very first breath.  She got Apgar scores of 8 and 9.

Jolie was cute from the minute she was born.  Here's proof.
Here is Jolie all cleaned up and wrapped up, ready to go about 5 minutes after she was born!

Awwwwww...
This is a picture of Bev seeing Jolie for the very first time.  The expression on Bev's face is priceless, enough to bring tears to your eyes.  We had waited a lot time and gone through quite a bit to finally get to this moment.

Is this really necessary?!
Then after getting sewed back up, Bev goes off to recovery, while the Dad with the camera gets to follow the baby.  I felt like a tourist in the hospital - I must've taken about 100 pictures that first day!  This is a picture of Jolie getting her footprints taken.  She was not happy about this!

Was Jessie Jackson was the father?
This is a cool picture of Jolie's feet with the ink just before getting her footprints taken.

Somehow Jolie was able to lift her head up for this picture which was kind of strange.
Finally Bev and the baby both make it back to the recovery room a couple hours after the surgery.  Both baby and mom are rightfully exhausted but very happy.  Considering all she's been through, I think Bev looks amazing in this picture.

I was sleeping for 9 months, but I think I'll sleep some more if you don't mind...
Here's Jolie all bundled up  and content in her bassinette in the recovery room.

Ahhhh, this is better than aroma therapy!
Then it was back to the nursery for a good bath and to get Jolie's hair washed.  She absolutely hated  getting washed, but, oddly, it was like she melted when they put her head under the warm running water.  We've used this trick a couple times already at home to calm her down.

I present unto you...the cutest baby ever!
This is a picture of Jolie in the hospital nursery underneath the heat lamp after her first bath.

Hands up or I'll shoot!
Another picture from the nursery after her bath.  She was about 3 hours old at this point.

Being born is quite tiring.  Yaaaaaaaaaaawn!
Then finally mom, dad and baby were sent to their room on the mother/baby unit.  This is a picture of Jolie yawning.  Being born is extremely hard work apparently!

Aunt Beth is one of my three favorite Aunts says Jolie!
Aunt Beth was one of Jolie's first visitors!

You're so cute, I think I'll break my leg!
Here's Jolie with her proud Pop-Pop Malinowski who celebrated her birth just a week later by falling down the steps at home and breaking his ankle!

Someone must brush their teeth with Crest!
Jolie and her Nanny Malinowski!  What wrinkle-free skin and white teeth Nanny M. has!
