Well, as all of you very well know by now, we have happily and successfully introduced our little girl Kennady Baye into this world! She was born on Wednesday, December 2, 2009, weighing in at 6 pounds 7 ounces, & measuring 18 1/2 inches long. She has been beautiful and sweet ever since she arrived. We are obviously back home and busy getting into whatever routine we can that works for all of us and our sleep schedules. I think figuring out feeding patterns, amounts, sleeping rhythms, and diaper changing schedules is probably the most challenging part of the first 5 or 6 days with a new baby. We have officially gotten more comfortable with how we are handling things and she seems to be happy about it too.
My labor was quite miserable...not gonna lie or sugar coat it. 18 hours later though, we were holding our newest treasure. I'm still recovering, but getting closer to feeling like myself with every day that passes. We've been lucky enough to have my mommy stay longer than we expected to help us out with this first week with baby. It's been wonderful for all 4 of us! Unfortunately, she's heading back home on Thursday. We are so blessed to have had her here for so long...
We had our first pediatrician appointment yesterday and found out that she has already gained 6 ounces! That's an ounce a day! Looks like she's really taking to momma's sweet milk! :) We can't help but look at her everyday and say how gorgeous she is. It's amazing that we could make something that is so perfect. Thank you God for a happy and healthy baby!
