Bringing Phoebe Home

After five days in the hospital, Hòa is recovering nicely and we brought Phoebe home for the very first time. We’re spending most of our sleepless nights staring at our beautiful baby girl.

Everyone in the hospital said Phoebe looks more like me than she looks like Hòa. I didn’t really think so until I saw her make this face:

It’s a girl!

Phoebe Vi* Warnock

Born September 16 in Halong Bay, Vietnam at 8:55pm (9:55am EDT), 3.5 kg.

*pronounced “vee”; We originally named her Phoebe Victoria Warnock, but we found out that at least one part of her full name should be a Vietnamese name in order for Phoebe to gain citizenship in Vietnam (as well as her US citizenship). We chose “Vi” as her middle name. “Vi” doesn’t mean anything specific in Vietnamese, but to us it means “Victoria” 🙂

Back together in Halong Bay ?

Tim got back last Monday after 3 months. We’ve had a longest time being apart and I’m glad he will be here with me waiting for the baby to come. Love you ?

The baby is now 3.2kg (7.3 pounds) at 38 weeks 4 days. She is kicking stronger these days ?. We can’t wait to see you soon baby girl ?.

We also took some photos together. So cheesy ?
