Zoë Gayle Peschke

Page 1

Zoë was born at 5:30 PM, March 2, 1999. She weighed 9 lbs, 15 ounces and was 21 ½ inches long. This is her web page so family and friends can see pictures and read updates about her. I keep having to guess at her eye color. Sometimes it seems brown, sometimes green, sometimes a sort of two-tone brownish-green fading out to blue.


This is the only ultrasound picture the doctor gave us. It is a shot of the top her head at about 16 weeks.

March 3, 1999

March 3, the day after her birth, still in the hospital. (Her birthday was kind of busy--I barely managed to get some videotape of her, but no still pix. If someone did get a picture of her on that day, please feel free to let me scan it).

March 16, 1999

March 16, at 14 days. Notice the "missing" left arm. It was held in a sling beneath her clothes because of the difficulty at birth that resulted in a broken left arm and right collarbone. She never has liked sleeping on her back and during her first several weeks would only sleep peacefully if in a reclined position. She slept in her little chair most of the time.

March 25, 1999

March 25, at 23 days. Once again in her favorite chair, enjoying a free left arm for the first time. It's amazing how fast a baby's bones can knit together.

March 30, 1999

This is one of my favorite pictures. I had her feet in my hands to help keep them warm. She seemed to prefer that to wearing socks.
