Sydney's Snuggler

I made this snuggler for my niece {in between praying}.
My Sis-in-law went to her {routine} 35 week Doctor appt,
were she was sent directly to the hospital for admittance on Wednesday {3/14}.
The baby was in distress and my Sis-in-law was showing signs of labor.
The plan was to give her steroid shots Wednesday and Thursday
{to speed development of the baby's lungs}
and get the baby out by inducing labor on Friday {3/16}.
At 5:00 pm Friday, Sydney came into this world {via C-section}.
It has been an emotional roller coaster the past 10 days.
Our baby is still in the NICU and we are praying our knees off.
Sydney Joliet
5 lbs 4oz
18 inches
The pattern is from Simple Sewing for Baby,
I made it in an evening {even with 100 distractions, Mom please get me this, Mom can I do that, etc.}
The hardest part of the pattern was the velcro placement, with my alterations it came out PERFECT!...
Just like this little girl, PERFECT!!!

Here are a few pictures before our sweet bundle was here...
I had to bribe Carson to let me use one of his stuffed animals
to model a "baby thing". You should have heard the objections :)!
