On December 28, 2009 John and I welcomed into our family a new baby daughter. It all started at 4:30 in the morning when we woke up to go the hospital for our scheduled C-section. We had to be at the hospital by 5:30 for the surgery scheduled at 7:30am. We got to the hospital right at 7:30 and were immediately checked into "triage" to get bloodwork done and to start monitoring the baby. The doctor was running a little late so we didn't end up getting moved over to the operating room until close to 8am. Once their the anesthesiologist gave me my epidural and the nurses prepped me for our baby girl to arrive. At 8:37am Kayleigh made her debut at 6 lbs 14 ozs and 18.5 inches long. Everything with the surgery went just as planned and Kayleigh came out beautiful and perfect. After the surgery was finished they took Kayleigh and John to go get cleaned up and ready to meet the world. I was wheeled back in to "triage" to recover until they got a room ready for us. Once the room was ready we moved up to the 4th floor where we stayed for 2 1/2 days. We had wonderful nurses and a great experiance at the hospital. While we were there we had the wonderful honor of getting to know this sweet new spirit while Grandma Lyons watched Lucas.
Here are a couple of pictures from that first day with our baby girl.
This is me the night before we went to bed. I did not get nearly as "HUGE" as I did with Lucas.
Here is John all prepped and ready to go into the OR to witness the birth of our baby girl.
Kayleigh Anna Turner...her first picture! She is perfect and absolutely beautiful.
John had the opportunity to cut her umbilical cord. This was new as he did not get that chance when we had Lucas.
Here she is after she was all cleaned and swaddled up. We are so grateful to welcome this baby girl into our family and so happy that she is healthy!
