She's here!!!






In less than 12 hours from the first contraction, Leah Grace Allred made her grand entrance at 8:20 pm, on Friday, June 27th. She weighed 7 lbs. 10 oz and was 20 inches long.




She has a striking resemblance to her big sister and is such a good baby! There are, of course, differences...one being a dimple on her right cheek! And she doesn't have the mark between her brows that Monica does, or quite as much hair. But she is just as beautiful and we have fallen completely in love with her! We are excited to see what she ends up looking like.


As for me, I am soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo happy to not be pregnant anymore!!! I was getting to the point I thought there was no way I could stretch any further. So YAY!


Monica is a proud big sister, although at first she wasn't sure what to think. She gives Leah kisses as often as she can and loves to hold her for a second before she gets heavy and doesn't want to anymore. She has been singing to Leah all morning and wanting share her blankets and cheerios with her. I said yes to the blankets, but she doesn't quite get why I said no to the cheerios.

So everything went smoothly and fast. We are all home and doing great and I will take and post as many pictures as I can! YAY!!! SHE'S HERE!!!!
