Paisley Jane

Well, she's finally here!

Paisley Jane was born at 12:13 am after 15 hours of labor and 12 minutes of pushing. She weighed 7 lbs 2 oz and was 20 1/2 inches long! She is a very sweet baby and we already can't imagine life without her!

My second experience with a new baby has been so wonderful so far I can't complain one bit! Paisley is so sweet and content and nurses like a champ! She reminds us a lot of what Lexi looked like when she was born although I think her nose is a little different.





I think the hardest part of this whole experience was not being able to see Lexi the whole time we were in the hospital. They wouldn't allow anyone under 14, even siblings to come visit! Needless to say, I was anxious for us to get home so that Lexi could meet her new baby sister!

Lexi was sooo cute with Paisley when she saw her! She kept saying "Hi Baby! Hi Baby!" She kept wanting to hold her and cuddle her. She is very fascinated when I nurse her or change her diaper. She has seemed to handle the transition really well so far. So far she's only tried to feed her string cheese once.


Our first family picture at the hospital (minus Lexi)




It seems that we are destined to have Billi babies!
Paisley's levels were too high this morning so she is now under the lights, doctors orders!
It is so much better this time than with Lexi because they delivered a little bed right to our house for her to lay on instead of having to go back to the hospital like we did with Lexi!

When we first put Paisley in the bed, she was the most alert she's been so far. She just laid there so sweet looking around for a long time before she fell asleep.
