Introducing Mackey Lee Hammond

Mackey Lee Hammond arrived at 4:29am on Sunday morning, February 27th.  The birth story is very eventful, let’s just say, we are really thankful for the 12 weeks birthing class we took before Myra Grace because we almost didn’t make it to the hospital!  We left our apartment at 3:50 and he was born less than 45 minutes later!  He came so fast our doctor got to the hospital 15 minutes after he was born.  Thankfully there was a midwife on the floor and she woke up in time to deliver Mackey in the sweatshirt she was sleeping in.

Mackey was 8lbs 15oz and 21 inches long.  He was only 3 days past the due date.  Myra Grace was 10 days past her due date so she still beat him out weighing in at 9lbs 3oz and 22inches long.  Ansley is recovering well and we are all adjusting to being a family of four.

The most excited is Myra Grace.  She is constantly saying “baby” wondering what he’s doing and kissing him on his head and rubbing his face.

These are some pictures we had taken by the hospital photographer.  We wanted to share them with you.
