Rawlins Family

Because I'm a little bit tired...

This is what I sent out via email to my family. Remember that I'm on painkillers and forming coherent sentences is hard and stuff.

"Hey everyone! Sorry it's taken so long to get some pictures out. Chase's laptop doesn't have our camera software on it because it's a work laptop. Anyway, Haley Jayne Rawlins joined the world kicking and screaming at 1:52 on Friday. She weighed in at 8 lbs. 6 oz. A little bigger than Miles, but smaller than Soph. She was 19.5 inches.
The girl can wail. She also has a good sized head. You'd think that wouldn't matter for a c-section but it was low enough that they were practically wrestling me on the operating table to get her out. That was pleasant. But she got out and we're all happy and healthy. I came home a day early due to good behavior (on Haley's part, anyway) and probably because they were sick of me. Whatever works, right? Either way we're happy to be home and happy that Vikadon (sp?) and prescrip. strength motrin exist. Big round of applause for the inventors of those.
Here are some pictures of the Halestorm, Hales, HayJay (and sometimes I call her Sophie. I plan on putting a therapist on retainer for the future, no worries). She's gorgeous. We love every square inch of her and firmly believe she was worth all the pain and nausea of the last 9 months. The kids are also in love with her (violently so, at times). As we say in Primary, "we are a happy family."
Hope you and yours are all well. We love you all!"

P1050041 P1050040 P1050048 That's Chase's mom giving Hales her first bath!

P1050053 P1050054 P1050057 P1050060 "How many bags of fluids does it take to make Anna look like that, anyway?"

P1050062 P1050067 The big kids spent their visits climbing every surface in the room. Sooooo relaxing for me:)

 

I do want to add that Mama K has been an angel! The kids are loving all the time with her and so am I. Thanks for lending her out, dad. I'll try to get her back to you in the same condition she arrived in. Also? The first thing I noticed when I sat down at the computer were the search results for the "Find a Grave" website. Awesome, mom.

Yay for a cute chubby baby! She's beautiful. Hope the kids don't smother her! Enjoy the painkillers. I am SO looking forward to them! Sound sleep horray!

OOOH, Vicodin! I only ever get Percoset, because I'm allergic to Codeine. You should try Dilaudid sometime, though. They gave me that when I had pansinusitis (painful-er than my C-sections, fo' rillz, yo, and there was a CT scan involved) and I was high as a kite on the stuff...

But anyway, about that new niece of mine, YAY FOR HALEY JAYNE!!! WELCOME TO THE WORLD, CUTIE-PATOOTIE! Thanks for the rockin' pics. She is just as adorable as my other niece and nephews of the Rawlins variety, and looks just like them. You did good, Girly.

Awww!!! She's beautiful!!! Congratulations! (Now we share a baby's birthday in common too!) And for the record, you still look just as amazing, all loaded up on saline. I would have never guessed!

I want to squish her! She looks great, you look great, and those were plenty coherent enough!

Congrats!

I love the weigh-in picture. Congrats!

Congrats. She's adorable, although I'm more focused on the first paragraph of Pooh's comment, which gets more and more funny every time you read it.

Congrats Anna! And Chase. She is so pretty. My brother and his wife just had a baby on the 27th of July.....they also named her Hailey Jayne. Weird, huh? Even more weird that you both spelled Jayne the same way. It was her grandmother's name. Unless your baby's name is pronounced like Halle Berry. Is it? I hope you are both feeling well.
