Baby Gabrielle is Here!

Welcome to the world, Gabrielle Lucinda!  We're so glad you're here!

She was born Sunday, July 29 at 7:40pm weighing in at 7 lbs. 8 oz. and 20.5 inches long.

She wasn't due until August 21 so you can imagine how unprepared we were!  My water broke Saturday night and I quickly packed a hospital bag, went for a walk with Casey and the dog, and checked in to the hospital.  In the delivery room, she was called a prima donna over and over and since being delivered, the nurses repeatedly call her out for being feisty.

Casey called her out yesterday for being a little diva in her tanning bed.  :)

She's been in the NICU since Monday morning, but should be released today assuming all labs come back okay.  We're excited to take her home and spend more time as a family!
