Kayla was born on March 19th at 12:03 am. She weighed 8 pounds and 12 ounces and was 20 1/2 inches long. We had a scheduled C-Section planned for March 21st but on Monday the 18th I started to have really strong contractions about 7pm. As the night went on they kept getting stronger and closer together so about 9:45 we decided to head down to the hospital. Once I was all set up in the room they examined me and determined I was dilated to a 5 and fully effaced. So they said it was time for the C-Section. So they quickly got me ready and we headed to the surgery room around 11pm. March 18th is my Brother's Birthday so I was really hoping that she would be delivered before midnight. But due to some complications she didn't arrive till 12:03. She is a really good baby and loves to snuggle. When the kids came to the hospital they were so excited to see her. We stayed in the hospital till Thursday afternoon. I am very thankful for my Mom and Sisters who took such great care of my kids while Dan and I were in the hospital. Since we have been home we all have adjusted really well, except that Miss Kayla loves to sleep with Mom and Dad so getting longer than 2 hours of sleep at a time has been hard. So other than being completely sleep deprived we are all doing great!
When she was born she had really long nails and since she loves to have her hands next to her face she scratched herself a couple of times. The mark on her left cheek was the worse.
