Happy Healthy Baby

Laura had her two week check up on Wednesday and now weighs 7 lbs 11 oz! The Dr. was amazed! At her first check up she was 6 lbs 15 oz, so she has gained 12 oz in two weeks! The Dr. said it was (and I quote directly) “incredible breastfeeding.” WOW! I was so happy! Good job Laura!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Thanks Grandma Hansen for the cute Valentine’s onesie. Aunt Kelly was visiting from BYU and after Laura had breakfast we put her new onesie on and took this picture. About ½ hour later we smelled something stinky. Laura had exploded! Her poop had leaked out through the sides of her diaper and down her legs, and out through the top onto her back! Disgusting! Luckily we had already gotten her Valentine’s picture!

Welcome Laura!

Welcome sweet baby Laura! Laura Brooke Earl was born January 31, 2009 at 2:30 pm. She weighed 6 lbs 14 oz and was 18 ½ inches long. We were surprised to see all of her dark hair!

Joel became a doctor for the day and delivered his daughter! The Dr. showed him where to put his hands and how to hold her once the head was out, and Joel finished delivering her. He held Laura while the Dr. suctioned out her mouth and nose, and then Joel cut the umbilical cord. What a proud daddy!

What a sweet baby!
