It's A Girl................


Our baby arrived this afternoon with both sets of grandparents, Uncle Corey (Jer's brother), Conley and me.  I thought Jer was never gonna tell us if it was a boy or girl.  He came out and said ok, I want pictures of everyone here now and that baby and mom were doing great.  Then we all said in unison, "What it is?" After hem and hawing around for a few minutes he laughed and said it's a girl and she is gorgeous. Needless to say we all jumped with joy because there are only 2 girls in our family, one in Texas (13) and a little girl we have never seen (2) in Northeast Iowa.  Lillian Grace weighs 7 lbs. 15 ozs., 20 inches long with head and chest of 14 inches each.  She has lots of dark hair just like her mama and boy is she a cutie.  We heard a new baby cry while in the waiting room and we all looked at each and said that must be our baby and sure enough it was........lol  Already got that baby cry down pat..  Since we couldn't see them for an hour we all went out to eat and then shopping for little girl clothes.  That's gonna be the best dressed baby in town as we've all been buying clothes for boys so long it's really cool to be buying feminine little girl clothes.
Not much time, the girls are arriving in just a couple of hours. Hope you enjoy the pics.
