First trip out

Yesterday we left the house for the first time since we came home! And by we I mean Kalena and I because Brian has gone several places since we came home. We had our first visit with our pediatrician. Kalena's weight is 7 lbs 3 oz, up from 7 lbs when we left the hospital. He said her lungs sound good which is reassuring, and everything else seems normal. He also checked her for retina damage and didn't see any. Being on such a high rate of oxygen for so long can cause retina damage, but it's typically seen in premies, not full term babies. So yea for everything looking good!

Things are going well, and Brian is the best help ever. If he weren't home with me I'm pretty sure I'd be having a breakdown right about now. Luckily he is home which means we both get a reasonable amount of sleep and neither of us get overwhelmed with having to do too much baby stuff. Plus it's so nice to have someone else here since I'm still moving pretty slow while I'm recovering. For all you ladies who had c-sections and did everything by yourself, I'm amazed by you. I really don't think I could handle it. Anyway, that's all for now. Here's a picture of Kalena and I ready to leave for the pediatrician.


  1. You look fabulous! It sounds like you are getting around. Take it easy and enjoy your beautiful baby. I have something for her, I just don't know if/when we'll be coming down. I'll get back to you on that one.

  2. Well, you don't look like you just had a baby. Glad to hear the good news from the Dr! Are you ready for CO?

  3. you guys do good work! i'm glad that your baby is so healthy, and hope you guys are happy!
