My brother, Kyle, and his girlfriend, Stephanie, welcomed their daughter McKenzie Jamie Renee DuBois into the world at 1:40 PM yesterday after an emergency C-section.
She weighed in at 4 lbs, 12 ounces and was 17 inches in length. This surprised everyone because she is not a preemie! Steph delivered only 1 week before her due date!
From what I understand, there was something wrong with the placenta which caused McKenzie to not gain a lot of weight in utero. I wonder if this would have been caught had Steph had more than 1 ultrasound…sometimes I think it is necessary to do more than 1, in my opinion.
Thankfully, little McKenzie is very healthy. She is breathing on her own and doing very well. She did have to get an IV last night to help keep her blood sugar up, but other than that, she should be able to go home with Steph and Kyle on Thursday.
Doug, my mom and I made the hour drive to see her last night and it was sooo worth it. I had to get photos, yo!
Welcome Baby McKenzie!
I’m such a proud Auntie!
McKenzie and Grandma Kathi.
Father and daughter…she looks like a baby doll!
Uncle Doug is a little nervous about holding a baby that’s so little….he did a great job!
(I didn’t get the chance to get any of Steph…she had a rough day and was getting some much needed rest!)
Congratulations Kyle and Stephanie!
I am so excited to be an Aunt again!
