View Full Version : My beautiful baby girl....
This weekend in the midst of a hurricane my wife and I drove to the hospital just in time for our new baby Haleigh Ann Newman. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif She was born on September 5, 2004 at 1:51 AM. She was 7lbs 9oz, and 20.5 inches long. We were allowed to leave the hospital this morning since both Heather and Haleigh were doing so well. I am about worn out already and it has only been a couple days. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
Everything thing seemed to go pretty quick. We got to the hospital around 7 PM. We were a bit discouraged to find out Heather was only at 1cm, but since the contractions were so strong the nurse had the doctor check also (took 30 mins to get him in the room). At that point we were at 3cm. The doc admitted her and gave her an epidural. 2 hours later the doc broke her water. 1.5 hours the nurse did an exam and she was at 5 cm. 1.5 hours after that another exam. SURPRISE, she was at 10 cm. The doc came in (with a bunch of other people) and got the room ready for the baby. Heather pushed for 20 minutes before the baby came out.
What an awesome event. I did not know my wife handled pain so well, but with the epidural, she never even groaned once while pushing the baby out. Everything seemed a blur to me. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Congratulations, I've raised 4 kids and I think you'll find you have many years of happiness and joy ahead of you, but don't be fooled, it won't be without it's tribulations. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
I had 4 sons, but never had a daughter; for good or ill it's too late now. /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Very happy to hear the wonderful news and congrats to both of you but didn't we all decide before you left Texas to name your first born Les or Leslie?????
I am sorry my good friend, but Les or Leslie was not in the plans. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
Thanks cheese. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
Thanks Sid, you are right, she is perfect. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif I have been all smiles since Sunday morning.
LOL, thanks Ross, that would only be fair. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
Thank you very much. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
Yes, we definitely got this right. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
Thanks. I am not sure about a big baby, but wow, does she have long fingers and toes. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

how was the hurricane?
Thanks. Yes it is great having a baby girl in the house. It would be even better if the baby would sleep at night instead of the day. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
Depends on perspective I guess. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif As far as having to live through it, not great. As being an admirer of storms, I loved it.
Thank you very much. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
Thanks. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif I am going to try and find some time to put some up on the web and I will link them here. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
Happy Anniversary!!!. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif Our anniversary is on the 15th of this month. We were married 4 days after 9/11 happened. /ccboard/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
Thanks. I am not looking forward to the tribulations. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I guess there is nothing I can do about that. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif All I can do is show her the correct way, if she does not care about what is right, she can be a Democrat. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
Thanks, I will try to post some later today.
LOL, thanks. Have Coors on us. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
I will keep her out of politics just as long as she would like. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Really happy for you and your wife, glad to hear all went well.
Well, I guess my mother-in-law took the disc with the majority of the pictures, so I grab a couple from the current disc I am using.

The only problem with girls is they grow up:

LOL, thanks. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
Yes this is our first, and not our last so says my wife. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Awwwwwwww she is tooooooo cute!!! Yeah, she got some pool player hands that's for sure! And if that isn't a bundle of joy, then I don't know what is! God bless!
09-08-2004, 02:43 PM
When my daughter was an infant, she also got her days and nights mixed up. It made for a few long weeks until I finally got her back on schedule. Do you have a cue for her yet?lol I thought she would have one for a picture.
