Amelia Kay Machlitt was born this morning weighing in at a surprising 5 lbs. 12 oz. She's 18 inches long and has dark hair. Mommy and Amelia are both doing great and Daddy is extremely proud! Amelia is breathing well and was sucking on a pacifier tonight with her eyes open while lying in Ben's arms! We'll know more tomorrow after they've tried to feed her, but so far this baby has surpassed all of our expectations! If you didn't know she was a preemie you wouldn't be able to tell by the pictures! She is really filled out... just in a compact little body! What a blessing!
We'll try to post an update tomorrow! Thank you to everybody for keeping Ben, Kori, and Amelia in your thoughts and prayers! God bless!
