Kiley Patricia Alway was born on February 10, 2017 at 7:58 a.m.
She was 8 pounds, 6 ounces and 21 inches long.
Today is her official due date, but after various considerations we elected to do a scheduled cesarean delivery at 39 weeks. It was the right choice, because everything went exactly as planned and both Mommy and Kiley are doing wonderful.
Welcome to the world, sweet baby girl!
I plan to recount all the specific details of Kiley's birth day sometime soon, but right now we are just enjoying getting to know each other and getting used to our new reality as a family of four.
Toward the end of my pregnancy I had a lot of apprehension about how I was going to handle having two children. But everything everyone assured me of turned out to be true...
Your heart really does make room.
The amount of love that I feel for this tiny, beautiful, precious human being sometimes threatens to completely overwhelm me. It's like she has filled in a piece of my soul that I didn't even know was missing.
Happy birthday, sweet Kiley, and welcome to our adventure.
