SUYL: New Mommy!

If you are coming over today from Kelly's Korner then WELCOME! If you are a friend who has been reading then welcome back!! 

I'm Allie... my blog about being engaged, married, and the life of a new wife has been hijacked and is now primarily a blog showcasing my beautiful daughter, Raleigh Grace, who is almost SEVEN months old!! 

The short story on Raleigh Grace's Birth:
On October 8th of last year I was so excited that I had finally reached my due date!! I just knew that Raleigh Grace would be here before that (because my sister and I were 4 and 2 weeks early- respectfully).  Everyone told me that I would go into labor early because my mom did both times, but guess what? That didn't happen. My due date came and went and like lots of people, I was trying to coordinate when my family should come into town from multiple states and boy did this little girl keep all of us guessing.  
Finally, October 17th came and I was 9 days past my due date! My doctors had scheduled a induction and I went into the hospital at 6:45am and around 9am they started the petocin (med's to start labor). 
here I am the morning I went to the hospital to be induced (41weeks 2days)
so ready to meet our sweet girl but still a little nervous! 

At 3:17pm my sweet baby girl, Raleigh Grace, was brought into this world! 
She was 6lbs 9oz and 20 1/2 inches long! 
our first "family photo!"

she is such a daddy's girl already! (daddy holding her the first time on left)
she loves her mamma too! :)

RG's first "holiday"- Hallowen (2 weeks old!)
she dressed up as my "lil pumpkin" complete with her polka dot leg warmers, tutu, and bow :) 
one of her many Christmas Outfits :) 
her first Christmas Eve and first time at Church :)
her first trip to Disney World (2 months old)

I can not believe that she will be 7 months old in just a few short days!! She has blessed our life in so many ways and I can not imagine life without her!
