Grace Elizabeth
7lbs. 7oz.
20 1/2 inches long
born at 5:22 on Tuesday, June 30, 2009

Grace finally came into this world with all 5 fingers and toes, dark blue eyes, a slight dimple in her chin and lots of love in her heart.
She didn't cry much, but rather stretched out and flared her arms all around, one of her nurses stated she was going to be a swimmer.
So far Grace is known for her quiet "break your heart" cry. Her perfect round head and face. Her long, skinny frog feet and her ability to stare into your eyes and immediately make your heart melt.
She's taking quite a liking to her big brother who insists on kissing her every 5 minutes.
At first I don't think Jordan knew what to think of her, but now he loves her as much as the rest of us. He helps to change her, gives her her Binky (even when she doesn't want it), and gobbles up her toes at the sight of them (nom-nom-nom).
Grace already resembles her brother with the same nose and lips. She doesn't have as much hair as he did when he was born, but she seems to be full with as much poop as he is now and relieves herself almost every 2 hours.
Labor was definitely better this time around and I'll save the complete story for another day when our little princess doesn't protest against the fact of being taking away from my boob.

You may call her Grace, Gracie, princess, baby girl, beautiful, or poop machine.
Thank your everyone for all your well wishes through this long, crazy, exciting ride.
