Kayli Elise - 2012

 
 

Born: Aug 2012, 3:29 PM

 

 
 
Pre-Birth
 
 
 
 

December 2011

 
At the end of 2011, shortly after Christmas, Philip & Leslie announced to the family that they were EXPECTING.  We were all THRILLED!  They gave a copy of the following card (framed) as a way of announcing the pregnancy.
 
 

Original Birth Announcement

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

10 January 2012

 
Because of Leslie's high blood pressure, the decision was make to keep a closer watch on her and the baby - including regular sonograms.  We saw the first one on 19 Jan 2012.
 

1st Sonogram - 19 Jan 2012

 
 
 
 
 

07 April 2012

 
On Saturday, 07 Apr 2012, the Loftin family went to Philip & Leslie's house to find out the sex of the baby.  Leslie had made cupcakes with pink and blue sprinkle toppings. 
 
 

 
We found out the sex of the baby when we bit into the cupcakes and saw the pink filling.
 

 
 
Since Philip & Leslie knew they were having a little girl, they had already decided on her name.  We all opened envelopes containing letters of the alphabet - some in blue and some in pink.  We had to unscramble the letters to discover her name.
 
 

 
 
Elise (from German & French) means "Consecrated to God".  It is also a form of the name Elizabeth (from Hebrew) which means "Oath of God" or "God is Satisfaction".
 
Kayli appears to be made of two parts.  Kay (Greek) meaning "Rejoice" and (French & Irish) meaning "Pure".  Li (Chinese) means "Strength, Powerful & Pretty".

12 August 2012 - Baby Shower

 
 
 
Kayli's baby shower was held at Woodlawn Baptist Church in Conover, NC.  There was a very large turnout of family and friends.  Leslie and Philip spent an hour just opening the numerous gifts they received from family and friends

 
 

Leslie & Philip open baby gifts while Aunt Christie records who the gifts are from ...

 

... including gifts from Grandma Myra & Grandpa Mike ..

 

... as well as Nonni & Poppi Loftin

31 August 2012 - Kayli's Birth
New-Born

 
Because of Leslie's continued high blood pressure, the doctors decided to admit her to the hospital on Friday, 31 Aug 2012 to induce labor.  Philip & Leslie had to be at the hospital at 6:00 am and they broke her water at 8:30.  She had successfully dilated to 10cm by 1:00 pm, when they asked her to start "pushing".  Kayli was born at 3:29 pm - weighing 8 lbs. 2 oz - with a length of 22.5 inches.
 
The family was finally allowed to go back and see the new baby at 5:20 pm.

One-Day-Old

 
Since Kayli was born at 3:29 pm on Friday, she had to stay in the hospital at least 24 hours.  She was doing well but Leslie's blood pressure was still a little high.  Everyone was looking forward to going home.

Poppi, Nonni and Great Granny Willie stopped by Philip & Leslie's for a visit with Kayli.

It was great to get some photos of Kayli with her eyes open

Great Granny gets to see (and hold) Kayli for the first time since her birth.

 

 
 
 

Nonni volunteers to change Kayli's "messy" diaper - but Dad would only hold the bag for the dirty diaper.
Eventually Nonni even chickened out and it was left to Mama Leslie to do the dirty job.
The process even required a clean outfit for baby Kayli

 

Nonni: "I don't think I can do this!"
Philip: "I KNOW I'm not doing it!"

 

 
 

Kayli: "That was a lot of work!  It's  time for another nap."

Two Months Old - October 2012

 
One of the nice things about having a photography studio is your house is the fact that Dad & Mom are always prepared to get some new photos.  These were made in October 2012.

After the service, the babies and their parents, as well as their grandparents, met in the Children's Ministry room for lunch - catered from Kentucky Fried Chicken.  A cake with the names of the 3 children to be dedicated and colorful decorations dressed up the room.

Time to open some Christmas presents

 

"What's this?  Did I get a new sister for Christmas, too?"

 

"The gifts are really nice - but I really like this colorful stuff on the outside - so tasty!"

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Loftin Family - Christmas Day 2012

 
Philip, Leslie & Kayli joined Philip's parents as well as his sister Beth's family at Poppi & Nonni's house for Christmas day.  Everyone arrived prior to 11:30 ready for lunch.
 

"What do you mean we have to wait till after lunch to open the Christmas presents?"

Kayli is the first 1st-Cousin for Savanna (and Ali)

Kayli helps Mama & Poppi open her presents (with a little assistance from Savanna & Ali)

 

 

 

Poppi & Nonni love buying clothes for their newest granddaughter

  

 

 

Kayli, however, is more interested in the toys

 

"Is that ALL of my presents?"

 

 

 

 

"Then I might as well take a nap with Poppi!  Close your eyes Poppi!"

 

"Awake now with a dry diaper - what more could a girl want!"

 

 

"Now I'm ready for some fun time with Nonni!"

 

 

Kayli was such a good baby all day - laughing and smiling - letting everyone hold her.

 

Philip got a great photos of Kayli with Great-Granny, Willie

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Christmas Book

 
Philip, Leslie, and of course Kayli, wanted to find just the right Christmas gift for the grandparents, aunts and uncles.  At first they considered doing a 2013 calendar with photos of Kayli for each month, but decided that after 2013 was over the calendar wouldn't be of much use (except for the photos of course).  They finally decided to do a "Blurb-Book" with photos of Kayli for the various seasons of the year - a gift that could be saved and enjoyed time and time again.  The size of the book was 8 inches by 8 inches.  Everyone loved it!
 

They titled the book, "Smiles For Every Season"

 

Lying on the Bible - which is opened to Psalm 139:13
"For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb."
