Peanut is here!

Hello blog world! Sorry for being MIA but I totally have an awesome excuse – Peanut is finally here!

I’ll keep this post short since I’m holding the baby and typing with one hand.

I (finally!) went into labor on Friday afternoon after a short false alarm earlier that morning.  We made our way to the hospital around 11:30 that evening and were admitted to Labor & Delivery.  Peanut was born on Saturday morning (1/22/2011) at 7:35 am.

Addison Haley King is 6 pounds and 5.5 ounces and 19 inches long.  The first thing Jon and I both said (after all the tears of happiness) was that she really looks like a little Peanut!

Needless to say, we are absolutely smitten with her.  We can’t get enough of her. 

And yes – we did end up using both outfits because, shocker, I couldn’t resist dressing her up right away.

As we get adjusted I have lots more to post (including the survey results!).  As for right now, Jon and I will be here, staring at our little Peanut.

I hope these first few weeks are filled with nothing but cuddles and her sleeping on your chest (even though you'll have a few good poop & spit-up moments too). I can't wait to read all about your labor story and how y'all are doing!

  41. I just read this! Funny how both of our Addison’s came out as peanuts! The first thing my Doctor said was “she’s a peanut!” I didn’t realize how tiny she was until they told me she was 5lb 7oz. She also came on her own (but 5 days before her due date)!

  42. Oh and my Addison has both those outfits!!
