It's a girl...her name is Sophie...and she's Beautiful!!!

Well, our stubborn child finally decided that she wanted to come into the world today! We went to the hospital last night and they broke Alisha's water at about 9:30 p.m., and after 15 1/2 hours of labor Sophia was born on October 15, 2008, 12:51 p.m. Alisha was a trooper throughout the whole birth, and even though it was a rough labor, she kept a positive attitude the whole time.

I immediately saw that it was a girl, and I was shocked. I was totally expecting a little boy to come out of there....but once again I was wrong and Alisha was right. It doesn't matter though, because she is a beautiful, healthy baby girl and we both fell in love with her immediately.

Sophia was born:
7 pounds, 12 ounces
20 inches long
Dark hair and dark blue eyes.
