Coraline's first week
Coraline spent her first 48 hours or so in the neonatal ICU. The nurses from the ICU, so taken with Kev's energy and devotion visiting and being with her, found a bed they had and wheeled it to our room for him (dads normally sleep in a chair). This is once she was back in our room.
During our six days in hospital we buzzed the midwives to our room with various questions. One day I asked, "is it normal that she doesn't really cry?" The midwife replied, "She has no need to cry, you're anticipating all her needs". Other times we were told "you're very calm, so she's very calm".
