Two Weeks - Baby Hayden

The last two weeks have flown by...and I am sure it won't stop anytime soon! On Thursday we had our two-week appointment and here are her stats:

Weight: 5lbs 15oz (5%)
Height: 19 inches (10%)
HC: 34 cm (5%)

So I was a little disappointed with her weight. I really thought that she would be above her birthweight (6lbs 3oz) but her doctor wasn't concerned so it's not really a big deal.  I ended up nursing her and then sneaking back over to the scale before I left...I got her up to 6lbs. Yay!

At the hospital they told me her height was 18inches and at the appointment yesterday she was 19inches. The nurse was a little unsure so we measured twice - def 19 inches. Since she probably didn't grow a full inch in the last two weeks we can assume the hospital nurses didn't quite get her measurements right.

Her head is only in the 5th percentile...which is fine since the rest of her isn't much bigger. That's probably why I have such easy babies have such small heads! Anyhow, some of her headbands seem tight which is a little concerning since her head is so small.

Welcome Baby Hayden

We are thrilled to announce the arrival of our sweet baby girl, Hayden Cora McDonough. She arrived early Friday August 8th at 6:31am.  Although she was four weeks early she weighed in at 6lbs 3oz and measured 18inches long.  She is absolutely beautiful and we have all already fallen in love with her!

Daddy's little girl

The boys are in love with their baby sister and LOVE showing her off to their friends. They are so proud to be big brothers! Kevin and I are so happy and enjoying this special time so very much.

Meeting Little Sister

We decided not to have any friends visit us the first day so that we could settle in and rest...especially since I didn't really sleep at all the night before. Anyhow, I was super excited for the boys to come and meet their new baby sister! Sarah brought them up around dinner time and it was so much fun to see how excited and proud Ryan was. 

Ryan smile was so big when he walked in the room - he was so excited to meet Hayden. Grayson, on the other hand, was not on board. He hung out by the door and was trying to escape...until he realized that everyone was in awe over the little baby. So he snuck over and decided maybe she was pretty cool after all...and he has been in love ever since. 

Checking her out

So excited!

Such a proud big brother!

And Grayson LOVES giving big kisses. A little aggressive but sweet...

Love all these kiddos!
