It’s been a great weekend spending time with Jody. She has been a tremendous help with the girls, and we have been able to catch up on everything going on with each other since we were last together (a year ago). We will be sad to see her go home tomorrow, but I think her four boys and husband are more than ready to have her home.

Aunt Jody

Aunt Jody (“JoJo” as Irelynd calls her) arrived today….
…and Haidyn has pretty much been in this same spot since she arrived.

Thank you Nana!

Nana Angelbeck headed back to Colorado yesterday. Irelynd was sad to see her go and has been asking for “nana” all day today.
A big thank you to nana for all your help over the last 10 days…we couldn’t have done it without you!

8 days old

Haidyn had a check-up today (she has been slightly jaundice so they have been checking her every 48 hours). Fortunately, her bilirubin count was down today, so she should be in the clear. Her weight was back up to 8 lb. 14 oz.
Irelynd is doing a great job taking care of her new little sister!

Irelynd has been great so far dealing with baby Haidyn’s arrival. She loves to “pet” and kiss baby Haidyn. She has, though, started to realize that she now has some competition for attention. We’ve been trying to make it as easy as possible for her to transition to a new sister.
Yesterday she got a “tricycle from Haidyn” (actually an early birthday present), and today she got to go to the zoo with nana and daddy.  I think she will most likely survive!

Haidyn Grace

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kari @ 3:03 pm
Sorry for the wait on the pictures. My visions of blogging in the hospital were shattered by the lack of internet connection in the rooms…I guess you can’t have it all!!
So as you know, this baby did not want to wait to be induced. She came VERY fast and unexpectedly. This is what I was about to post just hours before Haidyn was born:
“Had my last doctor visit this morning….everything looks great for inducing tomorrow morning (6 a.m.). Things have progressed significantly since last week, so that made me feel pretty good about going ahead with the induction. Most likely at this time tomorrow, we will be holding a brand new baby girl. What a crazy feeling”!!
I was waiting for Irelynd to wake up from her nap to publish the above post, so I could include a picture of her and I on my last day of pregnancy.
After writing that, I chatted with my cousin, Karl, for about thirty minutes or so and after hanging up with him, I realized something was not right. I called Jon and told him he may want to start thinking about heading home but I would call him back in 15 minutes. After realizing that I was probably having contractions, I called him back and told him he should probably come home. By the time he got home, my contractions were about four minutes apart. I called the doctor’s office to make sure we should come in, and after talking to the nurse (who told us to come in right away), we headed to the hospital. We arrived at labor and delivery at 5:00 p.m. They checked us in and I was examined by the nurse to see my progress. When she started laughing during the examination, I was certain she was going to tell me that I had not dilated enough and to come back later. Instead, she said that I was 9 cm. and 100% effaced. Needless to say the next hour was chaotic…nurses running around drawing blood, asking a million health questions, paging the doctor etc. and with the doctors arrival and three pushes…Haidyn Grace was born.
We are so blessed…and that is Haidyn’s birth story in a nutshell.

Ball Girl

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kari @ 7:54 pm
Irelynd did a great job acting as “ball girl” for a her daddy and nana’s tennis match today.  She was all business…but she did take a break to pick some flowers for the competitors.
