Addyson Day Adams is Here!

Miss Addyson was born exactly a week ago on April 22nd at 9:50 PM.  She was a little smaller than what we expected (which her Mommy is not complaining about)... 6lb 12oz and 18.25in. She's a doll (as you can see below).  

On Wednesday morning I woke up extremely sick, so Lindy came over to bring me some fluids to keep me hydrated.  Well, even though I thought I was doing a good job hiding the contractions, she could tell that I was having them by my facial expressions.  She insisted I call the doctor.  I really hesitated due to the amount of times I've been sent home from the hospital and I just saw my doctor the day before.  But with the contractions coming every 5 to 7 minutes apart I decided to go ahead and call.  They had me go up to L&D because my doctor was the on-call doctor for the day.  Needless to say, after she checked me out she decided it was going to be Addyson's birthday and they started inducing me.

We have such wonderful family and friends who came and visited us at the hospital.  We love all of you!  One of my close friends, Christin Wooden came up to the hospital and took some unbelievable pictures of Addyson.  They are gorgeous, and I cannot wait for her take more :)

Addyson has jaundice (sp?) that we are working on getting rid of right now, but other than that she is doing great!  We are scheduled to see the specialist around her kidney, but she is going to bathroom without any problems and that is a great sign.  I will keep everyone updated on that appointment.
