Avery Lyn Smith

Our little Avery Lyn Smith arrived on December 20th. She weighed in at 7 lbs. 15 oz. and was 19 in. long. The c-section went well, Avery came out breach, and folded in half. She also came out crying a lot,I guess she was very comfortable inside me. The first thing I noticed about her, were her cute chubby cheeks. She has her own look and is such a sweet girl, we can't imagine our lives without her. Braxton and Bailey are so in love with their little sister. Doug was so awesome taking care of me when I came home and with all the holiday celebrations, and taking care of Braxton and Bailey. Our families were also so helpful in taking Braxton and Bailey it really helped when adjusting those first two weeks. We can't thank them enough.

Getting ready to go in for the c-section

Our little Avery

She is "angry" as Bailey would say

I love this look she is giving.

So excited to see their new baby sister.

Daddy loves his little girl, it was nice to spend some alone time with Doug, her and I in the hospital.

Coming home

She had to be under the bili lights for the first week trying to get bili levels down under 10. Not fun when you just want to hold your newborn.

Sleeping so peacefully.

Finally got to dress her in clothes.

Sponge bath till the umbilical cord falls off.

She got to be in a blanket? Oh I wish Charlotte had that. We had this bed that looked like a tanning bed thing and didn't have nice eye covers like that. We had to put these cotton round things on her eyes and use a separate thing to hold them down. I hated having to put her in that all the time and her levels took so long to drop. But Avery is a cutie! It was so fun to see her. What a sweet little girl!

Okay, that scrunchied up face of hers...I almost want that picture framed right by my bed so I can see it and laugh first thing in the morning every day. Haha, what a great picture!!
