Madi had her first doctor’s visit on April 5th. Dr. Fairgrieve Park was super impressed with her weight gain. She weighed 7lb 10oz and had grown ½ an inch in length. Her physical assessment checked out perfectly as she squirmed and squeaked her way through the appointment.
Madison Lola Hunt joined our family on March 18th, 2021 at 10:04am. Weighing 6lb 12oz and measuring 19 inches in length, she is (by far) our smallest babe. She was born via scheduled c section at 38 weeks and 1 day and her big sisters are totally smitten with her.
It’s been a busy first few weeks as we’ve celebrated the majority of our families’ birthdays PLUS Easter. But this little girlie is fitting in just fine amongst all the noise and the chaos. We are all glad she is finally here, safe & sound.
I’m not going to lie, this pregnancy has been rough. We told family and close friends early on because I was so sick. I finally found some reprieve by attending the IV clinic for hydration and medications every couple of days. Craig took over most of the household duties and caring for the girls while I was sleeping up to 20 hours a day.
At around the 14 week mark, I was finally able to drink enough to no longer require hydration therapy. My nausea began to dissipate and I could keep food down. Now we are hoping that there won’t be any more bumps in the road and baby remains happy and healthy.
This year Floyd turns 7 which makes him 47 in dog years!! We celebrated with balloons, party hats and cupcakes. Our neighbours were SO CONFUSED. They know when all our birthdays are so we had to admit that all this was for Mr. Floyd. The girls were disappointed when they couldn’t give him a cupcake but each enjoyed one on his behalf.
