If you hadn't heard...

Introducing Isla Jean Lacey

If you hadn't heard, we had our little girl on September 14th, 2010 at 4:08 am. Isla weighed in at 7 pounds 11 ounces and stretched out to 20.5 inches. It was a very eventful couple of days, leading up to her birth. I'll spare too many details, but Brent and I went in at 8 pm on September 12th and were officially induced the next morning. With lots of IV problems and 3 hours of pushing (fun!), little Isla finally made her entrance into the world.

Within seconds, she was looking for something to eat and latched on right away. By Wednesday morning, we were home and healing.

Now, seven weeks later, all are healthy and happy. It's crazy how the time has flown! Minus the little scare Isla gave us after not gaining weight, she is healthy, happy and gaining as she should. She's still tiny, but she's now cooing and smiling all the time. She has consistently slept through the night for almost a month, and mommy couldn't be happier. :) We love her so much, and can't imagine our lives without her.

Brent and I have felt so much gratitude for the many friends and family who have helped us through this transition. Thank you for making us feel so loved!

I'm not going to lie, and say that our blog won't be all about Isla now, but I can't. She has quickly become the center of our lives and we can't help but brag and show off this little cutie!
There will be lots more Isla to come.
