BABY HASKINS

Welcome baby Haskins. Name is coming!!! She was born at 3:24 am on Jan. 27th!! She is 9 1/2 weeks early!!! She weighed in at a whopping 3 lbs. 9 oz. and is 15 inches long. They said this is a pretty good size for a 30 weeker, as they are calling her. She's fiesty and doing well. She is in an incubetor and hooked up to a breathing machine, feeding tube, heart and pulse monitor, and a temp monitor. They have the breathing machine on the lowest setting and they are planning to take it out tomorrow, so that is big!



-You can see my mom's 2 hands basically cover all of her
-You can see her in her bubble and my hand next to her little feet
-Jas was gone (supposed to be gone a month) to Virginia for army training. Luckily with some phone calls and a little work we were able to get him home early. He missed the birth but made it here around 1 pm. My mom was with me the whole time and my sister took Em and helped out with her. Paul was here to give me a blessing and help make all the phone calls to get Jas home. I'm so grateful to everyone for their thoughts and prayers and help. We really appreciate it. She is wearing extra, extra premie diapers, they are soooo little. About the size of a purse size kleenex package. Mom and baby are tired but good and grateful that things are going so well!!!

Wow Becky, I just heard this tonight from Sister Snow and was so surprised because we are only due a day apart and I know that I would not be ready if I had my baby tomorrow. I am happy to hear that she is doing so well though. I can't believe how tiny she is next to your mom's hands. I am so glad that Jason was able to get home (I'm sure he was shocked to get that phone call). I will keep you and your sweet family in my prayers. Let us know what you decide to name her. I will be thinking of you. Love, Kristen
