While it wasn’t quite as expected, Lauren Paige has finally arrived and is now a week old – A WEEK OLD!! She was born at 6:54 PM on Friday, September 15th. She weighed in at 6 pounds, 13 ounces and was 20 1/2 inches long. Both Ryan & I were surprised to see that she actually had some hair!! We were finally able to bring her home on Monday and the time has seemed to fly. However, there have been times in the early morning hours that couldn’t go fast enough. She still has her days & nights confused, but we’ve been reassured as long as we continue to do what we are, she should get that figured out soon…
Take a look at the saga of Lauren’s arrival in pictures by clicking here.
Our first family outing with Lauren was where else – the pediatrician. Lauren had another great bill of health. Her weight was down a little, but still looked great at 6 lbs. 10 oz – 18th percentile. She’s in the 90th percentile with her height which is quite surprising since we are not the tallest. She was really good in her car seat – sleeping most of the time – and even tolerated staying in the car with Daddy while I ran in to Babies R Us for a few quick supplies.
We are still trying to figure out how we are going to take a family portrait including both Lauren & Hailey while either Ryan or myself take the picture. That might have to wait until Lauren has a little more head control.
Hailey meet Lauren on Tuesday and Ryan & I have been so proud of how well she’s been acting. She has been very respectful of her and at times when Lauren’s been crying has seemed to want to help us comfort her by licking her head. We were afraid that Hailey would be jealous or even too rough with Lauren – but she’s just been great! She’s such a great “big sister”.
