She's Here, We're Moving... & much more

Wow, so when they said you'd be too busy or too tired to do anything once the baby was here... they sure weren't kidding!!

So Miss Rylee was born on 3-29-2010 at 8:55 am! The c-section started at 8:44am which was the time that Jayden had been born and miss Rylee arrived 11 minutes later! Before they could get her entire body out she was already screaming and let me tell you that was music to my ears!!! She was born at 6lbs 7oz and 19 inches long. She looks just like her brother Jayden. I just know he is watching down over her because she already smiles like crazy.

At 2 days old Rylee developed jaundice and was taken to the special care nursery to be put under bili lights. and from there we spent a week in the hospital under bili lights trying to stablize it with her bili levels jumping to 22 at one point. They finally ran a CBC test and noticed that her hemoglobin levels had dropped severely and we ended up at Riley Hospital for Children to get a blood transfusion. The transfusion went well and her anemia levels seem to be getting better. Her Jaundice is now down to 9.6 which is one of the lowest #'s she's had.

At her 3 week appointment at Riley she weighed 7lbs 4oz so she's a big growing girl!! :)

We are now down in Kentucky and just rented our house!! We get to move on saturday :) I'm so excited to have our family together. The house is a very small 2 bed/1bath with a large fenced in yard. It's nothing spectacular but that's all we need for right now. There isn't many "nice" places around here as it is anyway and this is about the same quality we would get on post housing. We took my first ride around base today and it's huge... I like the base though and I like that there is alot of land and of course pools for Rylee and I to hang out in this summer!! I'm anxious to get involved and get connected with other army wives down here.

We are trying to get Rylee transfered to Louisville for her hemotology check ups but for now we'll be making the 2 hour drive up to Riley in Indy.

Well that's a quick update! Here is the link to our photos of Rylee (caution: breastfeeding pictures are included): http://picasaweb.google.com/klboone212/RyleeJaylyn#
