1 Week Old

Today is Hailey's one week birthday!!! Today was our actual due date but we are glad that we had her last week. I asked Sue if she wanted to do all of this again this week and after giving me "the look" she said no. Hailey has been sleeping alright. She has varied between 2 and 5 hours at a time. Her favorite activities are still eating, sleeping and snuggling with mom, dad and many other people who have come to visit me. Sue is slowly starting to feel better. Hailey also met the other member of our family when Z came home. Z has really done well with her and is protective of his new little sister.

Well we finally made it home. At 11 am we made the long trip home (only 2 miles). Hailey has made a good adjustment to life in her new house. Besides a 15 minute bout of hiccup induced screaming she has been happy as a clam. We really appreciated all the great nurses and doctors at HRH. They definitely went the extra mile. We have had lots of guests since Hailey has arrived. She has been held and photographed with many new friends and family members. Sue is feeling much better but is still sore. Overall, we are doing great. We can't wait to hear from and or see all of you.

Day 2

Hailey has found her two newest activities: eating, sleeping and sometimes a combination of the two. Hailey is a very good baby and has for the most part not been too fussy. She only seems to cry when it is time to eat again. I have loved to meet lots of new friends and family members. I love to snuggle ecspecially with my mommy. All the doctors and nurses have all been great and they all seem to comment on how beautiful Hailey is. We tend to agree. Sue is starting to feel better and really loves being a mother. We again thank all of you for the love, support and prayers.

I tried to put these in the post above but they didn't work so hopefully they do now.

The Arrival

Well, the day has finally arrived and baby Hailey came flying (almost literally) into the world. After 3 hours of true labor she arrived. I think everyone including the doctor and nurses underestimated Sue's strength as she got her out in 6 pushes. Our doctor almost missed catching her but thankfully he has quick hands. Hailey was 20.5 inches and weighed 5 lbs and 3.7 ounces. Mom has had a rough time since delivery dealing with some blood loss but she is doing as she would say, "Great". We thank everyone for their continued thoughts and prayers. More to come later.
