May 2004

It's a girl!
We were blessed with our second daughter on May 12.
Our newest princess, Jenna Lynne Maifeld, arrived at 1:31 p.m.... all nine pounds, four ounces and 20.75" of her! Everyone did great!

She was originally due May 25, but because the doctors were concerned about her size, labor was (thankfully) induced early.

Emma loves being a big sister, especially giving Jenna kisses and telling Jenna she loves her. We'll see if she feels the same way when Jenna tries to play with her Barbie stuff in a year or so. :-)

Settling in
It didn't take long for Jenna to settle in at home. But it's going to take a little longer for Mom and Dad to get used to the lack of sleep. :-) Click on the photos below to see more…

Emma likes to get toys out for Jenna and is having a hard time understanding why Jenna can't play yet.

 Jenna had her two-week check-up on May 27, and she's doing great. She's grown a lot, gaining 8 ounces from her birth weight, and growing 1.25". The doctor said she's going to be a tall girl... surprise, surprise. :-)

Emma's field trip
On Friday, May 28, Emma took a field trip with her daycare class. They went to a park in Waukee and had a great time. Click on the photos below to see more…

Emma loves to make silly face

At the zoo
We took advantage of a beautiful Memorial Day to visit Blank Park Zoo, one of our favorite places to go as a family. The weather was wonderful, and Emma loved it... except for the bats! Click on the photos below to see more…
