Kahlan Grace Ward

I figured we should at least get a few pictures up of Kahlan for anyone who wants to see how our baby girl has grown in the past few weeks.  Kahlan Grace Ward was born on Tuesday May 17th, 2011 at 3:58 am.  She was 8lbs 2ozs and 20.5 inches long.  Kahlan was born by emergency c-section after I developed an infection and pre-eclampsia during labor and was stalled at 9 cms for over 10 hours.  Kahlan did great during labor and after delivery but I hemorrhaged during surgery and for the next couple of days which then involved multiple transfusions.  I also battled an infection for almost two weeks which resulted in a total of 10 days in the hospital and countless IV antibiotics.  We finally made it home to stay on May 27th and have been doing great since then.  Here are a couple of pictures of our little girl.  We will update as much as we can with stories and pictures for family and friends to enjoy.

Kahlan cuddling with mommy.

Fast asleep after escaping from the swaddle.

For some reason Kahlan loves to hold her pacifiers.  This started day one in the hospital and continues to be true to this day.

More cuddling with mommy.

Daddy finger-feeding Kahlan to try to help establish nursing and give mommy a break from battling a strong-willed child.
