Hi all! Miss Kenady Darlyne was born last night, 4/1/2009, at 10:10 pm after a very short but intense labor. She is healthy, but tiny weighing only 5 pounds, not quite 19 inches. They are treating her a bit like a premie, running extra tests and being extra careful....

I will post the birth story later, but here is a photo to tide you over...lol...I personally think she's absolutely gorgeous!

I feel almost bad posting this with all the sad news here, but know mommas that I think of you, all of you-with losses-with new babies-and those still waiting...

mama to dd16, ds13, and dd1 born 4/1/09 :

Hi all! Thank you for your good wishes! It's hard to believe she's a week old tonight...this week has flown by...she nurses well(prefers left side over the right but we're working on it!) and she left hospital at 4 pounds 10.4 ounces, and yesterday at the doctor she weighed 4 pounds 13.5 ounces, so we're doing good! She's still gorgeous and her big brother and sister love her. She sleeps well, waking 2 or 3 times at night, mostly just to nurse. I am terribly engorged, going on the 3rd day of that, so I am ready for that part to be over! She's a very happy baby...but why wouldn't she be, in her whole life, she's been put down for a sum total of about 2 hours!!! LOL She is so snuggly and roots right down in the valley between my engorged breasts and snuggles in for the night.

I haven't posted much, but I am trying to check daily for births, and welcome to every new baby...and can't wait to hear from the rest of you!!

Here's her birth story: http://www.mothering.com/discussions...5#post13518045
