Baby Emree








Baby Emree finally arrived yesterday at 5:12 p.m. Danielle and Tyler got to the hospital at 6:00 a.m. where they induced Danielle's labor and broke her water. Emree was born at 5:12 p.m. after much anticipation but only 12 minutes of pushing. The nurses and doctors said Danielle had great abdomen muscles from all that dancing. She weighed 8 lbs. 1 oz. and is 19 inches long. She swallowed some fluid and needed some extra care so she spent the first four hours in NICU. She really is perfect and looks exactly like Danielle did as a baby. ( I might possibly be prejudice....) Sharon Mckonkie said, "she can see her name on her dance jacket' and Fran welcomed the next generation of 'Molahiettes'. Whatever baby Emree decides to excel at I know she is very lucky to have two incredible parents and will have plenty of love. I couldn't be happier or more proud. And certainly plan to spoil her every step of the way.

Yea, the wait is over! Emree is darling, and I do believe there is a little curl in that hair of hers, just like her mother. {Aren't babies with lots of hair just the cutest} Congratulations! Being a grandma is the best.
