Born: 4/24/09 at 5:09 PM (so much for a lunchtime "expected" delivery by Dr. Sams!)
Weight: 9 lbs. 4 oz. (a far cry from the "smaller" baby we thought we were having; even the dr. was quite surprised when Hayden arrived!)
Length: 22 stinking inches! (I had either said he was completely stretched out for quite some time or he was incredibly long; it was both!)
Hayden William Ainsworth is perfect! He has a tiny, tiny, tiny hole in one chamber of his heart. The ped on call said he heard a heart murmur when he checked him out Friday night---I knew heart murmurs are fairly common. Due to me having group B strep, Hayden had a little bit of temp when he was born. If his temp had been 100.5, no other tests would have been run. Baby boy's temp? 100.6. Yep, 1/10 of a degree. So tests and blood work have been run since he got here, but all the levels that were slightly up are back to normal. We'll still be here through Monday since the ped wanted him to have a solid 48 hours of antibiotics. As of now, we're the only family left!
Hayden is content nearly all the time; the nursery nurses have loved him. Today he panicked for the first time when we couldn't get the food factory going fast enough. Yesterday, he ate well, but with long lengths inbetween feedings. The medicines and tests made him just want to sleep. He doesn't liked to be moved once he's settled and he hates the hat the hospital has put on his head! He won't be wearing many 0-3 month clothes, and we seriously have to reevaluate the shoe situation when we get home. He coos while he sleeps (just like David), and he is the spitting image of his daddy! We're using David's computer here at the hospital, so when I get home, I'll put pictures up as I can. He's fun simply to look at and admire and love!
