Brooklyn’s in the House

June 30, 2009

My extended family has had many sorrows, but also many joys this year. We were given another reason to celebrate. After spending 4 weeks in the hospital on bedrest, my cousin Jasmine gave birth to a healthy baby girl. Brooklyn Aaliyah was born at 27 weeks gestation on June 14th. She weighed 2.1 lbs. & was 12 inches long. She is premature, but like many of the other women in our family she is a feisty little thing.

Because she was born while I was out-of-town, I didn’t get to visit until a few weeks after her arrival. Here are a few of my photographs.

She may only be 2lbs and 2 weeks old, but already she’s the most fashionable baby in the NICU.

Welcome to the family Brooklyn! We all can’t wait until you’re big enough to come home.
