Lola Yvonne McDougall

May 28, 2010

Introducing the newest member of the Doogs clan – Lola Yvonne – born May 27th, 2010 at 3:15 PM, weighing in at a commanding 9 pounds, 4 ounces!

So far Lola is proving pretty much the opposite of her big brother. Nolan was two weeks early. Lola arrived exactly on her due date, after many false alarms, and sent Mrs. Doogs into labor three hours before she was scheduled to be induced.

When Nolan arrived, the wife’s water broke and drugs were used to kick-start the whole dilation process. With Lola, the dilation started and the obstetrician had to break her water in the hospital.

Jamie pushed for an hour and twenty minutes before delivering Nolan. With Lola, she only pushed around twenty-five minutes. And Lola weighed almost a pound more.

Lola’s demeanor is also very different. Overall, she seems very content, and doesn’t cry all that often. When I took Nolan upstairs for his bath, the baby girl was sound asleep in the pack-and-play. Don’t think we ever managed to lay Nolan down in there without a torrent of world-is-ending/why-are-you-making-me-watch-Dancing-With-the-Stars screaming.

So far…she’s a total sweetheart, and I look forward to seeing her personality start to emerge over the next weeks and months.
