Friday the 13th


We're now the proud parents of a beautiful, bouncing baby girl!  Tessa Kae was born (via c-section) at 8 pm on Friday the 13th - let's hope the timing isn't a bad omen.  Tessa's a big girl, coming in at 9 pounds 1 ounce and 21 inches long.  We headed home yesterday and we're all tired (especially poor Allison), but we're doing well.  Thanks for your love and prayers, and we hope you get to meet our new addition soon.

SO excited about you and this beautiful baby! Love the name Tessa. We have the neatest girl in our ward named Tessa Everyone adores her.

Thank you, in all your postpartum exhaustion, for stopping by my blog and leaving such loving, supportive comments. (Hmmm....now that I say that, it reminds me of a situation in reverse, about 7 or 8 years ago.)

Love you!

Congratulations! I was thinking about you guys the whole day she was born, and have been waiting with baited breath for this post. Allison, you look better in your first family photo than I ever did, even sideways with a cap on. Cute girl! (Both of you.)
