Day One


Okay! Time for some details. Aletheia Jean was born July 3, 2006 at 11:20 p.m., and weighed 7 lbs., 3. oz. Length was 20 1/4 inches. She has a bunch of dark hair and beautiful deep eyes. So far, she's the world's calmest baby--really just happy to be on board. She hasn't cried yet unless she was being poked and prodded, and she calms down as soon as the affliction has ended. She also seems pretty alert for a newborn. Eyes wide open, taking it all in.

Allie's breathing was a little labored at first, so she spent a couple of hours in the nursery, but before long her breaths were gentle and steady. Since then she's been in the hospital room with her Mom.

Man, if you had just held out a few more minutes, you could have had a July 4th Baby!

Of course after I made the last comment, I read the post where you would like to avoid a birth on the 4th. :-)

However, I'm sure you knew I was joking, thinking you would have the sentiments you pretty much expressed in your post.

Congratulations, Kirk and Sandy, she's a beautiful girl!
