Houston, We Have a Bellybutton!!!

I didn't think we would ever get to see this little girls belly button, but the cord stump finally fell off this morning, and she has a cute little "outie". It's funny what excites me now!!!! Haley is doing well, she looks like she is gaining some weight, we'll find out how much at her appointment next week. She is sleep pretty good at night, usually only wakes up twice to eat and get a diaper change. We went on our first outing last weekend to SouthPark. She did really well there, loves to shop just like her mommy!!!!

Today's Doctor Appointment

Little Haley is starting to beef up!!! She has gained a pound since her last doctor's visit, she now weighs 7lbs 8ounces. The doctor is very pleased with her progress. We are doing better with the breastfeeding. She still does well at night too, gets up 2-3 times to eat and thats it. Will and I are doing pretty good too, we're not completely exhausted....yet.

One Week Old

I can't believe Haley has been with us for a week now, time is already flying!!! Her bilirubin level is coming down which is great news. She has been pretty good so far. She doesn't cry too much usually just when she is dirty or hungry. She is sleeping pretty well also, only waking up once or twice to eat. I keep wondering when that will change. She is just too sweet, I could just eat her up!!! FYI, I am starting up a new photo storage website. This one is easier to order prints from, you can order them online and have them printed pretty much anywhere like Walgreens or CVS. If you're interested, check it out.

Home Sweet Home

We've been home for 3 days now, and so far so good. Haley went to the pediatrician yesterday, and her weight is up 1/2 an ounce which is a good sign. Her bilirubin level (which is what causes jaundice) is still creeping up so we have to go tomorrow to have it recheck, but she is eating well and pooping a lot so that will help bring that bilirubin level down. She seems to be pretty content right now. She really only wakes up to eat, doesn't cry unless she's having her diaper changed, getting a bath, or changing clothes. She is just getting cuter and cuter everyday!!!

Haley Gray is Here!!!

Haley Gray Buchanan was born Friday 2-29-08 at 8:40pm, after almost 24 hours of labor. She has a head full of long black hair and the most beautiful eye lashes!!! She is a lot smaller than we ever thought she would be, weighing in at 7 pounds even and 21 inches long. So much for guesstimates on the ultrasounds. And her head is not gigantic like predicted either. She is just so beautiful!!! We are having to stay in the hospital one extra day than we had planned on because she is a little jaundiced, but she is doing fine otherwise. Mom is doing well also, just the typical postpartum aches and pains. You've probably heard or noticed that her name is a little different than our original name. When she came out she just looked like a Haley Gray instead of Grayce, so we decided to stick with Gray. We, of course have tons of pictures all ready, too many to fit on the website. So if you want to see more than what we have posted here, I will be uploading them onto http://www.dropshots.com/laurabs24# I can't wait for everyone to meet our little girl.
