Did you really think I wasn't going to post anything about Cora Kaye Schneider? The photos are below, if you don't want to read the post!

Michelle was admitted to the hospital on Saturday evening, April 14th to begin the process of giving birth to this beautiful little girl. She and Miles were troopers through this undertaking, as Cora was not born until Monday, April 16th at 5:26pm. As the nursing shifts changed, Michelle was afraid she was going to run out of kind nurses before Cora was delivered.

The Schneiders and Briers, of course, were all up to the hospital and back home several times during that time.

I must give a shout out to Brett. He was there and took care of anything that needed to be taken care of.
He got Miles out of the hospital for lunch a couple of times, he drove people around, he took the kids to play, and cooked Sunday evening dinner for them so I could relax .  (Shannon and Joanie were at the hospital giving moral support to Michelle.)

I also must give kudos  to Dr. Wiley, Michelle's obstetrician. When she put Michelle on bed rest, Cora was barely 2 pounds. With her guidance, Michelle was able to grow Cora to 5 1/2 pounds by delivery.  She was patient and confident that she could deliver this baby without a c-section.  Plus, when she came in to see Michelle on Tuesday, she sat and held the baby for long time. We love her.

  1. That was wonderful, Jan! I loved that particular version of 'Rock a Bye Baby', too. I am so happy for all the family and so glad things are good with little Cora Kaye. She is beautiful! I know it was an ordeal for Michelle and Miles, but Bless Their Hearts...they DID it. Congratulations!

  2. Congratulations on the newest darling grandchild, Jama and Poppy! I watched the Smilebox three times. That second picture of Barry and Cora is the sweetest thing ever!

  3. I love this smilebox - it definitely shows the love that surrounds Cora Kaye. She is one lucky little girl. I speak from experience, when I say, that is is special to be a part of this family.

    1. I'm so happy for your new family. You will always be precious to me.
