She's here.... (pictures added)

Mallory Rae Frey has arrived. She is 8 pounds, 21 inches long. We are going to see her this afternoon so I'll update with pictures when we get home.

Daddy was pretty excited this morning when he called and Mallory was in the background telling Grandma and Grandpa hello for the first time. We haven't talked with Lynn yet but Jesse said she is doing well. This having grandbabies is stressful, I hardly slept last night and this was the longest morning in history. Thank goodness this little girl wasn't born in Oregon.


Update:

Lynn looks great for having 12 hours of labor, she was getting tired by the time we left. I was sucha bundle of nerves until I seen Lynn, I wasn't worried about Mallory or Jesse, I just wanted to see my little girl and make sure she was okay. There's something about being a mom that makes you worry about them forever. Jesse and Lynn now have their own miracle.

Jesse, Lynn and Mallory Frey - Their first family photo


Here's a bonus pic of Mallory in Grandpa's arms. I thought she looked like Jesse at the hospital but now in my pictures I think I see Lynn's lips and nose. She is very fine featured, she doesn't look like a 8 pound baby. Lynn says it's all in her thighs, Shannon says "we like babies with chubby thighs, their easier to give shots to".
