Sophia Naomi Armstrong

Baby Sophia was born Monday, August 18, 2008 at 11:11 a.m. ... a wonderful birthday present for her Mommy! Sophia weighed 6 lb. 14 oz. and measured 19 inches tall. Sophia is spending some time in the NICU due to some breathing and lung difficulties. Doctors aren't sure if this is a result of being born 3.5 weeks early, or if Sophia has some kind of infection. Hopefully she will be better soon and can go home from the hospital with her Mommy. Emily is doing well, and is obviously very anxious to "love on" baby Sophia. Emily is able to hold her 2 times a day, but it is a very difficult process since Sophia is hooked up to so many monitors. Please keep baby Sophia in your prayers, and we'll keep you posted on any progress!
