Welcome to the World, Baby Girl!


Our Sweet Daughter was born 7:59am, April 20, 2009.


She weighed in at a whopping 8 pounds 10.6 ounces. She was 21 inches long.
Her newborn clothes fit perfectly with no extra room.


Mommy and baby did well during delivery and both are recovering well.


Daddy's already wrapped around her little tiny finger.


So are her big brothers.




Ryan gave her hundreds of kisses. Just couldn't get enough.

Aunt Rachey snuggled with her in the blanket she gave to baby girl.


Papa was here to welcome his first granddaughter.

And Nana is here this week to welcome her granddaughter and to entertain her grandsons. Thank you so much Mom! Nana says she looks a lot like I did when I was born.


She has lots of black hair, like her mommy did when she was born.



She looks different in every picture.



Still not sure what we will name her, but she is adored and all ours.

Oh Danielle! She's perfect! Congratulations. Just wait, there is something magical that happens with a daddy and a daughter. I know Chad is already an awesome Dad, but something extra special will kick in with a little girl. And look at you! All made up and beautiful for our post delivery picture! You have a beautiful family. Many congratulations. I love you and I miss you! Also, a name that I had thought about and loved but ended up not using was Emma Nicole, just to throw out a suggestion!

She is so cute! What color hair did the boys have when they were born? Did Danielle's hair turn blond too? I have a hard time imagining Danielle blond.
She's perfect! Congrats!

I have been waiting all morning for these...She is adorable. Looks like a Lauren to me. But who am I to say? I am just a lowly Aunt

Danielle,
She is beautiful! She and you look very heathly and happy; God has blessed your family with such a sweet baby girl!

Kim said...

Oh, now the wait is over. Your new baby girl is beautiful. Beka looked at her pictures too and he is mad that Andrew has a baby sister. She says she wants one too. I guess she thinks it is unfair that Andrew keeps getting younger siblings and she doesn't.

Congratulations!

We have all been waiting for this post! What a sweet girl. Those boys looked like they were in love with her (all 4 of them! *including daddy and grandpa!). You look great, beautiful, and amazingly rested. We are so happy she is finally here.

Avni said...

sooo gorgeous. Congratulations!! :-) she's beautiful and perfect! I know you'll find just the right name for her.

Avni said...

One question though: Are you going to get a new domain for your blog now? :-) you're no longer just blogging with boys! I think she might feel left out growing up if the family blog is called blogging with boys. ;-)

Katie said...

Congrats Danielle and Chad! She is so beautiful and I'm so glad that both mom and baby are doing well. I wish I was closer to help! We are so excited to meet your little girl!
