Kayleigh Marie

So, this is Kayleigh Marie. She was born February 9th, 2006 at 1:02pm. She weighed in at 5lbs and was 18 inches long. She was 6 1/2 weeks early so she's still in the hospital, but doing well. She's doing everything on her own except she can't stay awake for long enough to eat enough to keep her weight up so they're supplementing with fortified breastmilk from me. Isn't she beautiful! I think so :) The first picture is her right after birth. The second is 2 days ago when I was giving her a bath. The little tube stuck to her face is what they use to give her extra feedings. She just has to grow a little more. She's the light of my life. Who knew that she was a girl! My whole pregnancy I thought she was a boy. I'd been calling her a him all this time. I already apologized to her and I'm sure she'll understand. She's such a good baby. Very easy going. See her face in the bath. That the "ok mommy, I'm not too sure about this, but do what you want" face. She also has lots of other faces. She's so fun to watch both while she's sleeping and awake. She's never going to sleep in her crib though because if I'm there Kayleigh's either eating or sleeping on mommy. I've even fallen asleep holding her in the rocking chair. She's so precious. I love her so much. Well, there are more pictures online at www.christinesbaby.com. Email me if you want more info!
