Kaylee has arrived!

Kaylee Christine Collett was born on October 1 @ around 6:00 p.m.. She weighed in at 8 lbs 2 ozs and was 19 inches long. I ended up having to have a c-section and Kaylee had an infection and was admitted to the NICU the day she was born. She was put on 10 day antibiotics and so we did not get to take her home when I was discharged from the hospital. She had to stay for another week. She made amazing progress in the NICU and by the time we got to take her home she was up to 8 lbs 14 ozs. She is continuing to grow and we are having so much fun watching all of her many adorable facial expressions. Sometimes I look at her and can not believe that I am a mom...but I am loving it and she is such a blessing. :)

I looked at Madeline today and thought, I can't believe you're my daughter! And it's been three years. It's so weird how when you're little, it's a given that your parents are you parents, but when you're the parents, the kids grow on you.
