Our New Addition









This is going to be a quick post tonight, of course because I am tired, lol. We had our new addition Kennedy arrive Friday the 18th at 10:00 exactly. She was 9lbs 7oz and 21 inches long. OMG, she is just a precious as she wants to be and her brother and sister are just in love with her!!
I actually went into the hospital Thursday night to be induced and I ended up going into labor on my own with anything! So it was her time to come anyway, lol. We ended up being in the hospital for 5 days!! I was so ready to come home and sleep in my own bed. My poor baby had to go through phototherapy because her (jaundice) bilirubin levels were high. Phototherapy is where they are exposed to special ultraviolet lights until excessive bilirubin has been destryed and the liver matures enough to handle the load. It was awful having her under this thing with a blindfold on to protect her eyes, for almost two days. She cried, and I would pick her up comfort her, feed her, but then back she had to go.
Kennedy is good now, and we have been home for a few days and she is fitting in quite well, lol.

Awww Kennedy is beautiful hun, and such big girl too, ouch lol.
My son Gareth also needed phototherapy as he was jaundice which I was told is common for big babies. It is heartbreaking putting them back in the "fishtanks" as hubby called the plastic cots with the tiny blindfolds.
You must have been so pleased to get home, rest as much as poss hun and enjoy your beautiful baby
love n hugs Mandy xx
