Kaitlyn has Arrived
Kaitlyn Elenore Brown 8 lbs 3 oz, 20 in. length, born 7:26 A.M. Aug 18th. Both Kaitlyn and Mother are doing just fine.
A couple of Kaitlyn stories from day one; Kaitlyn decided to scare us by not breathing for 25-30 seconds, but then everything was normal. She is quite wiggly, any attempt at putting a blanket on her as shown in the picture causes her to kick her legs about wildly until the blanket is removed. She also likes to play with the nurses at the hospital, they placed a temperature monitor on her stomach to get a reading, Kaitlyn decided to take that monitor and forcefully remove it. It took two nurses to get a reading because one had to hold her arms in order for the temperature monitor to stay still. So she is very healthy and playful, she also has a vice-like grip for a newborn. She found mom's IV tubes and gave them a good squeeze, enough to pinch off the flow of fluids. She is a lively, lovely, girl and we are very pleased and humbled to have such a beautiful little girl in our family. There will be more pictures on this blog in the near future.
