It’s been such an awesome day – so very overwhelming. All the kind comments, calls, texts, etc are super appreciated. We are so very grateful to have a healthy baby and mommy. Ava Kalea doesn’t look exactly like the Monkey Baby we thought we might see – but she is beautiful and perfect (just like her brother Makaya and sister Jacqueline).
I really got caught up in the moment and did a terrible job capturing them via pictures and videos, but I’m sure there will be a lot more in the near future. In the meantime, here are some more pictures of Ava Kalea Kennedy.
It is with great pride, happiness and special gratitude that I am excited to share that Ava Kalea Kennedy was born this morning at 9:54 am. Stacia Kennedy did an awesome job throughout the pregnancy and labor, giving life to a 7 pound, 1 ounce, and 19.75 inch long healthy baby girl. AND she did it all naturally -without any pain meds (she’s tough).
Thank you to the midwives and great staff at USCD Medical Center, who are all overworked and under paid I’m sure. At the very least, they have to cope daily with aged facilities lots of varied situations.
I’ll certainly be posting more pictures and video real soon.
