Quick update

Hey all, I don't have much time to write, but I wanted everyone to know at least the stats and see a pic or two.  Everything went fine and I will have a detailed post about the birth in a few days, but for now here's the gist of it:

Meet our DAUGHTER - that's right folks, we had a girl.  It was a big surprise for Sam and I as we had decided a few days before that we both thought it was going to be a boy.  Without further ado:

Ailey Grace was born on Monday, March 2, 2009 at 11:03 am.  She weighed in at 6 lbs 5 oz and was a whopping 18 3/4 inches long.  She's gorgeous!  Here are pics for your viewing pleasure.  I'll post more later.


Grandma and Grandpa Little and Aunt Jenny
Proud Aunt Jenny 
Cousin Boaz and Grandma Little
Grandma Little giving some love.
Jennifer the mid-wife weighing Ailey and me with a very scary face...yikes!


Those are some proud big brothers!
Nina has a goddaughter!
The boys finally got to meet their sister.
They couldn't wait to get their hands on her:P
Vernix mustache.  Oh  yeah.
Sweet girl!

Shelly, Congrats on your precious little girl! I was just looking into cloth diapers (three in diapers is killing me :)) and remembered you made your own. Would love to hear how it's going, when you get out of the thick of new baby! :) She's beautiful. Enjoy!\

Congratulations! She is less than a week younger than Eden. Wow. It's great that you got some pink in your life. Boys are great, but little girls are definitely more fun to dress.
