Our IVF Miracle Firstborn in 2009 - Connecticut

Postby Dri-Jim » Fri Jan 02, 2009 4:07 am

Hi girls. Some of you might know me (Jim) and my wife Adriana through the IVF forum. Today we're the proud parents of the first baby born in Connecticut in 2009! And since she was born at the stroke of midnight we are at least tied for the first baby born nationally.

Coming from the miracle of IVF this is really something. One link misspells her name, but that's okay. Sophia Louise is here today!

Thanks to our doctors and many friends and supporters here.

Jim and Dri

Yeah for CT! Congratulations on the first CT baby of the year, and more importantly, on a healthy beautiful baby. First baby honors couldn't go to a more deserving couple, congrats again!

Thanks Michelle and Happy New Year. You're right on that the health is the most important thing. She's such an angel.

oh- and wanted to know if you know about the Middleton Mile- sculptures throughout the town- both my husband and I have had works up there over the past few years- in West Haven, Middleton, Madison (my dh, has one in Madison now)
again- congrats on a beautiful family

Loopie- i am in west haven. What sculptures are you talking about, at the beach?

Jim- again congrats, and I was curious, do you win something (besides for a perfectly beautiful baby) for being first in the state or first in the nation? I thought I had heard free diapers for sometime.

Michelle- We've already received gift baskets from several manufacturers with clothes, breast pumps, protection devices, etc. I think Gerber gives a year of free baby food and I was told free diapers might be coming too! I'm typing this from the hospital room as Sophie is sleeping next to me in her crib and Dri is in the shower. Anyway, I'll let you know if we receive anything else. I was hoping for Super bowl tickets for dad but thery haven't arrived yet. :(

Loopie, I haven't seen or heard of these sculptures. Where in Middletown are they so i can take a look? And thanks for your support!

Haha Jim! I think if super bowl tickets were part of the deal, then it would be much more of a "competition!" It might make more dads interested in the labor and delivery...lol

Michele- yes- the sculptures in West Haven were along the beach walk about 4or 5 years ago- we then moved them to Madison- in fact, dh's sculpture (i'll put a photo of it on photobucket) is now in a private collection of a person in Madison -

wow Jim- lots of great stuff for the baby- hope you get those tickets!- did DW hold out on that last push? :lol: :lol: :lol: the sculptures were along the main street- both in front of commercial buildings as well as private homes- what a lovely town!


best for2009!

ps: Michele - I voted for Ella!

And here's Sophie's (Sophia Louise) first word on video! Daa Daaa!

She was 5 1/2 months when she spoke it.

Hope everyone is well...
