Well, it finally happened! We welcomed our daughter, Allyssa Rose Lambert into our lives at 5:22 am (yes, AM) on Thursday, April 26th 2007. She was a healthy 7 lbs, 4.6 ounces and was 20.5 inches long. The labor was very rough on Mom after getting to the hospital at 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday and not getting any sleep until Thursday afternoon. Sleep – yeah, what is that? A new baby in your life will take away not only all of your free time, but all of your sleep time as well. But, I am not complaining! I love having baby Allyssa around to hold and cuddle, poopie diapers and all – although I wasn’t ready for black poop.
We are working on getting some pictures to put up here so we can share them with you. We haven’t purchased our digital camera as of yet but hope to do so in the next few weeks. Stay tuned for more information about our new family.
