Bailey Grace Blake was born at 8:30 AM on October 2nd, 2008. She weighed 6 lbs and 5 ozs (much more than we anticipated) and was 16 1/4 inches long.
And ... she CRIED! We heard her CRY!
We had been told not to anticipate her crying and that it didn't necessarily mean anything was wrong if she didn't cry because they were going to get her out and send her through the window to NICU before she would probably even have a chance.
However, I heard that sweet sound and had never heard anything better. My baby girl was here where we could take care of her and make her safe ... and she cried!!!!
